What Can I Do with Old Furniture?
Are you about to move home and aren’t sure what to do with some of your old furniture? If so, don’t worry. Moving home is a great opportunity to conduct a clear out or simply get rid of old tatty furniture. However, not all of us have huge budgets to go out and buy new items. With this in mind, there are a number of creative and functional things you can do with old pieces of furniture and Pers Removals, we’ve put together some of the most popular.
Upcycle Your Old Pieces
There are so many wonderful things that you can do with old pieces of furniture. Instead of getting rid of items by throwing them away or donating them, you could inject a new lease of life to old items by turning them into entirely new and creative pieces. For example, you could turn an old cot into a desk for children, utilise unused crates by transforming them into an arty bed base or you could even turn old tires into a retro coffee table. You don’t have to completely change the piece of furniture; you could simply cover an old sofa in new fabric to freshen it up, or turn a classic chest of drawers into a shabby chic bureau. If you’re looking for some inspiration and are feeling creative, get online and check out what others have done. Pinterest is a great place to start.
Recycle and Help the Planet
If you’re completely done with an item of furniture and don’t think that you’ll be able to do anything with it due to time or lack of motivation, you should really consider recycling it. You can take any items of furniture to local scrap yards, or you can contact professional recyclers who will find a good home or use for your old piece. Not only does this free up some room for your move, but it also means that the item will get properly recycled which in turn, helps the environment.
Help Someone out and Donate to Charity
There are a number of furniture charity shops nowadays, many of which will collect from you if you’re unable to get your old furniture to them. Just think, your unused and unneeded items of furniture would suit somebody perfectly and help support a charity in the process. As the old saying goes, ‘one man’s rubbish is another man’s treasure’.

What Our Clients Say
‘This is just to thank you and your team for the fantastic service during my move from Crouch End to Bexley. Everything was packed beautifully and the crew who moved me were fantastic, remaining friendly and good-humoured throughout. The piano was successfully moved from the first floor and everything arrived intact. It was really worth having the packing service as well, and my stress levels were kept well under control, so well done!’

‘Excellent company – gave me a really good price and fantastic service. We had the full packing service on the Monday, then they finished packing, and moved us on the Tuesday – on time and on schedule. Kav even had five guys on the job, on the Tuesday morning, which kept us on schedule. No breakages, everything was well packed: highly recommended.
We’ll be moving again in the next year, this time with a piano – we hope to use Pers Removals again!’

‘Three charming chaps arrived to move my piano from Maidenhead to West London. They took time to plan the moving process and communicated well with each other. They had several steps to cope with inside the house, and a few outside. I was expecting the piano to be bumped about – but not at all. Such care was taken – the piano could have been a newborn baby and would have come to no harm! Now that I have found Pers I will definitely use them again.’
