How To Get Rid of an Old Sofa

Finding a way to get rid of an old sofa or couch sleeper can be very difficult & tricky. Especially if it is damaged, ripped, or stained. It can be upsetting, considering that you previously paid a lot of money for a piece of furniture that now appears to be of no interest to you or anybody else.

As it turns out, there are a number of ways for getting rid of an old sofa other than simply throwing it away.


There are different charities that are eager to take your used furniture off your hands. Most organizations will arrange for a pick-up from your house and will even provide you with a receipt to use for itemizing charity contributions on your tax returns. Vocational/technical schools may accept good furniture in need of repair or reupholstery to give practice opportunities for their students.

Check if your town has any furniture banks. They will also remove your furniture, provide you with a tax receipt, and locate a new home for your unwanted item. You might also consider contributing to a homeless shelter, a local theater, or a school.

If you believe your sofa is in good enough condition, get it professionally cleaned before having your sale. It may not get a high price, but it will sell more quickly, and if you have the capacity to move the sofa for anybody who wants to buy it.
