  • Bed frames and bedroom furniture
  • Divans and mattresses in good clean condition with their fire safety labels attached
  • Dining room furniture
  • Large kitchen and electrical appliances which have a plug attached and are in good clean working condition

We are unable to collect:

  • Broken or damaged furniture
  • Soft furnishings without fire safety labels attached
  • Soiled mattresses
  • Old style TVs, video recorders
  • Electrical items with no plug attached
  • Some older style furniture e.g. corner units, glass TV stands
