Get Rid of Your Unwanted Furniture with Skoup!

It can sometimes be difficult to know how to get rid of your old and unwanted furniture. It may be that you have an old dresser in your house that you want to get out of the way, a wardrobe that is falling apart in your bedroom, or a garden bench that is clogging up your garage. It could be that your local authority has specific rules about getting rid of unwanted furniture. Alternatively, it could be that you just find it hard to fit into the back of your car. Either way, whatever your reason for wanting to clear some space, Skoup are here to help.

At Skoup, we offer two different options for people who want to get rid of bulky furniture, whether you are cleaning out your house or removing unwanted furniture from an office. For a near immediate solution, we offer a bulky waste collection through our Van It service – a useful man-with-a-van style service that can help you get rid of furniture quickly, efficiently, and in a safe way. Alternatively, for longer periods of time or renovations, where the unwanted furniture may be a part of a larger remodelling or DIY project, you may want to consider hiring a skip. This can be done through our service Skip It.

To help you make up your mind about which service is right for you, we are going to explore both in detail. The table below gives a very brief overview, covering the key points of using a van compared to using a skip:

Van It

  • Same day rubbish collection available
  • Pay per item or per load size
  • Perfect for collecting unwanted furniture
  • Minimal environmental impact
  • Able to take almost every type of furniture including mattresses and WEEE

Skip It

  • Provides waste collection for projects lasting up to 2 weeks (after 2 weeks additional charges may apply)
  • Small, medium, and large skips available
  • Perfect for home renovations or larger DIY projects
  • Able to take bulky furniture and building refuse, but can’t take mattresses or WEEE

We recommend, before you order your furniture collection however, that in some cases there may be a nearby charity that would like the furniture donated instead. This is especially the case if your furniture is in good condition, so it is always worth checking before getting your unwanted furniture collected.

Van It is an all-encompassing furniture and bulky waste collection service, aimed to help you get rid of furniture without breaking the bank.

How much does unwanted furniture removal cost?

One of the many benefits of using a van to collect unwanted furniture is that you can pay by the item or by the amount of space needed in the van to dispose of your furniture at a responsible location. This can end up saving you a lot of money, as you don’t need to pay for a whole van if you only need one or two items collecting. Our unwanted furniture collection service is flexible, so you only pay for what you need to. 

What furniture can be collected using Van It?

At Skoup, we are registered carriers for a large number of specific types of waste, meaning you can rest easy knowing that we are able to safely and securely dispose of your unwanted furniture in a responsible way. With this in mind, there is a long list of furniture types that we can collect, ranging from relatively small to items that are far larger.

The list of items we can take includes, but is not limited to:

  • Armchairs, Office Chairs, Dining Chairs, and Garden Chairs
  • Sofas – One Seater Sofas, Two Seater Sofas, and Three Seater Sofas
  • Bedroom Furniture including Beds, Mattresses, Wardrobes, Cupboard, Vanity Desks and Mirrors
  • TV Stands, Shelving Units, Side Tables and other Lounge Furniture

What can’t be removed with man-in-a-van unwanted furniture collection?

At Skoup we are all too happy to help you with domestic waste, rubbish and unwanted furniture. That being said, there are a few limitations to what we can collect. For instance, if you are renovating then we are unable to collect loose rubble, pressurised containers, plasterboard, or paint cans. You can find a full list of items we can and can’t collect using the Van It service here.

Unwanted Furniture Disposal with Skip It

If you are doing a home improvement project or a larger renovation, then you may be thinking about hiring a skip. Skips can be a fantastic tool to use when you need a solution that will remain at your home or office for a while. Where they are not as immediate as having a van pick up a piece of unwanted furniture, they do have their benefits when it comes to wanting to throw away large amounts refuge. Whether it is unwanted furniture or scrap materials from a renovation, then skips can be useful to have on site.

At Skoup, we offer skips based on three different sizes – mini, midi, and maxi. Through our Skip It service you can keep a skip for up to 2 weeks. If you need a skip for longer than 2 weeks then please feel free to call us to discuss your needs in more details. For longer than 2 weeks, additional costs may apply. Skips can be picked up a minimum of 48 hours after ordering.

What can be put into a skip?

Skips really come in handy when you have a large amount to get rid of, and this is especially the case when building an extension or having a full home clear out. With that in mind they can be used for scrap metal or wood, as well as used as a method of getting rid of large amounts of unwanted furniture. When it comes to unwanted furniture however, almost all forms of traditional furniture can be placed in a skip; however, there are a couple of limitations. 

Mattresses cannot be placed in a skip, and neither can WEEE products. This means that items such as televisions, refrigerators, freezers and washing machines cannot be placed in a skip. A van is better suited for such unwanted furniture collections that contain WEEE. You can find out more about what can and cannot be collected by a skip here.
