Old Sleeper Sofa Disposal OptionsIf you’re doing a complete property cleanout, you can just toss it out with everything else. But, if it’s just a simple replacement and there’s no furniture removal from the source, you’ll find there aren’t many options at your disposal. Simply put, the fact that it is old and used makes it very unattractive. After all, would you want someone else’s old sleeper sofa? Chances are your answer is a resounding “No.”
It is no secret that getting rid of a used sofa or sleeper is difficult. Upholstered furniture may not find many takers, especially when it is damaged, torn, or stained. To think that once you paid good money for a piece of furniture that now seems to be of no interest to you or anyone else. Unfortunately, with the exception of leather, upholstered furniture can depreciate greatly with use. It is difficult to get rid of it even when you are not looking to make money. —About.comLike old home workout equipment, this type of thing is unwanted, to say the least. The truth is, there are things you can do with an old sleeper sofa. It just depends on a few factors. First and foremost is its condition. A close second is your geographic location, as well as the materials it’s made with. So, here are a few old sleeper sofa disposal options you can try to be rid of it, once and for all:
- Hold a garage sale. If you have some other things you’d like to part with, you can put it all together and host a yard sale. Price everything to sell because your ultimate goal is to be rid of it all, not make a bunch of money. After all a little cash and being free of all that junk is a winning combination.
- Sell it locally online. If the sleeper sofa is in good condition and you just want it out of the house, then place an ad online to sell locally. Be sure to stipulate the buyer must pick it up and haul it away so you don’t have to deal with it.
- Donate it to a charity. Another option — if the sofa is in good condition — is to donate it to a local charity, like a shelter. Organizations like pet shelters and shelters for women often welcome these kinds of donations. (Most will even come pick it up at no charge.)
- Recover it and reuse it. Yet another option is to recover it and then continue to use it. This is a good option if you still have use for it but don’t like its look. Make a few calls to see what your options are and estimated costs.
