For all household good donations please note:
It is always up to the discretion of the warehouse staff whether or not we can accept the items brought to the warehouse as we are very short on space and can’t guarantee we can take everything being donated. All items must be clean, in working order, and free of damage.
For all clothing and linen donations please note:
All items must be laundered, and free of any major damage. Clothing must be separated from their hangers before donation.
For all furniture donations please note:
1. That it is always up to the discretion of the warehouse staff whether or not we can accept the items brought in for donation as we are very short on space and can’t guarantee we can take everything being donated. Feel free to email a picture of the furniture pieces to email@example.com so that we can give you a better idea if they are items that we might take. We are unable to accept any furniture items brought in after 4pm.
2. All items are required to be in good condition with no damage, stains, rips or tears and in working condition (with no need for repair)
3. All upholstered items must be from a pet free and smoke free home.
4. They are not able to accept any pieces of furniture that have been taken apart as it is very difficult to know if all pieces are there and we end up paying a lot to recycle unusable furniture.
