What to Do About Sofa Removal: A Few Tips

How to get rid of your old couch.


Every living room has a sofa. This highly trafficked piece of furniture sees a lot of wear and tear through its lifespan. It’s where the family gathers and it’s often the focal point of a room. Once it’s worn out its welcome, though, it is typically difficult to get rid of an old, unwanted sofa. This is due to its large, bulky size and heavy weight. Getting rid of a sofa on your own is particularly difficult. Here are a few tips for sofa removal to make the process a little easier on you.

Sofa Removal

Rent a roll-off dumpster. This is a cost-effective option, but it leaves you to do the work of lifting your heavy sofa on your own.

Contact your waste removal company or your local municipality to ask about bulk trash removal days or specially scheduled pickups.

Sell it online. Start by posting your sofa on, eBay, or Facebook Marketplace. Include several images and dimensions. Be transparent about the condition of your sofa!

Leave it curbside for a night. Someone driving around your neighborhood the night before trash day might see your old sofa as a score. Don’t leave it out more than a few days, though, as a courtesy to your neighbors.

Donate it. Call a non-profit to ask if they can use your old sofa. But only offer up your sofa if it’s in good condition.

Hire a Junk Hauling Company

Getting rid of a couch is no easy task. Some municipalities impose fines for improperly dumping furniture and most trash companies refuse to pick up items that big.
