They can also contact your local scrap yard to confirm if they’ll take your sofa.
No need! Your sofa removalists can bring the necessary tools to disassemble your sofa. Further, they can provide the proper vehicle to transport your furniture. Just make sure to let them know the size and estimated weight of your sofa in advance. In this way, they can make the necessary preparations.

What do sofa removal and disposal services include?

Taskers can help you dispose of any type of sofa – from armchairs to entire three-piece suites. On Airtasker, you can find a sofa removalist who can handle every step of the disposal process. Sofa removal and disposal tasks include breaking apart a sofa and taking the item to the dump, recycling centre, or local charity.

During collection day, you may either meet your sofa removalist or arrange access to your property if you won’t be home. For contactless collection, you can even leave the sofa outside your house. Customise your sofa removal and disposal service just the way you want it. Here’s a list of old sofa disposal services you can book on Airtasker.

Delivering your sofa to a local charity or recycling centre

If your sofa is in good condition, a sofa removalist may donate the furniture on your behalf. These methods would work better for the environment, as opposed to just throwing the sofa away. Your Tasker can either take your sofa to a local charity or recycling centre. Not sure where to donate your sofa? No problem! Feel free to ask your Tasker to research for you.

They can find an organisation that can take your sofa. Before sending your sofa off to its new home, you can even have it repaired or cleaned up. Aside from old sofa removal, Airtasker also connects you to sofa bed repairs and couch cleaning services. 

Disposing of your worn-out sofa

Disposal of unwanted sofas involve:

  • carrying the furniture to the side of the road
  • taking it to the dump, or
  • breaking it down and placing the pieces in rubbish bags

Leave the heavy lifting and tedious work to your Tasker. They can arrange for the most responsible way to dispose of your worn-out sofa. Ideally, your Tasker may bring your old couch to the nearest garbage disposal site for recycling. 

For convenient transport, your Tasker can take your sofa apart before loading it into a van. If you need to dispose of other furniture, you can request for other clearance services on Airtasker.

Cleaning up after collection

Sofa removalists can also clean up your reclaimed space before they leave. In this way, you can enjoy the extra space or be ready to bring in your new furniture. For major decluttering, you can hire Taskers for other rubbish removal and flat clearance tasks. Also, if you’re buying new furniture, you can book a sofa assembly service on our platform as well. Sofa assemblers can pick up your sofa from the store and get you set up.
