Items That Are Suitable for Donation

We are interested in any household furniture or electrical items.

We aim to only collect good quality, useable items as there is a cost to us disposing of unwanted or damaged items.

Soft Furniture
All soft furniture must have a current fire warning label still attached, which either states that it complies with the 1988 Fire and Furnishing Regulations or conforms to British Standard 7177.

Items Containing Glass
Items containing glass must comply with the 1994 Glass Regulations.

Gas Appliances
We do not accept Gas appliances for re-sale.

Loading reusable furniture items
Please Note

We have limited space and will sometimes have to decline items. This may reflect quantities we have in stock, or our knowledge of the demand for a particular item. Higher value items may be sold at auction to raise money towards our running costs.

Our drivers are instructed which items we may not be able to take away at the time of collection. Drivers are asked to use their discretion based on this information so please don't be offended if we are unable to collect specific items.

Donations are collected entirely at our discretion, we are by no means obliged to remove unwanted items from your property.
Gift Aid
If you are a UK taxpayer, you may use us as your agent to sell the items you donate, whereby on us selling the item, you can then automatically Gift Aid the proceeds and we can claim an additional 25 pence for every one pound donated from the sale. There is no cost to you and we will provide and process all the paperwork as your agent. You will be issued with a unique donor number which will be attached to all your donations to enable us to keep track of these transactions. After the items are sold we will write to inform you of the amount raised and give you the required cooling off period before claiming the Gift Aid amount from HMRC.

We reserve the right to exclude items from this scheme if not financially viable.
