How do I schedule a furniture pick-up?
To schedule a free furniture or appliance pick-up in the Mahoning Valley area, please call 330-369-4198. At this time, we are limited to receiving donations in Trumbull and Mahoning County. We receive furniture donations from residential, commercial, and business donors as well as colleges, hotels and retirement homes.
Is there a pick-up service fee?
There is no fee to have furniture picked up at your home or business.
To provide cost-effective pick-ups, we ask our donors to include at least two or three pieces of furniture such as: table/chairs, dresser, and sofa. There are exceptional cases in which one item can be picked-up; but more pieces are appreciated to maximize efficiency of operation.
The donation request is set at a level that ensures we can run the service as a sustainable business model in the pursuit of our goal that everyone transitioning from homelessness has access to furniture.

Required condition of items for pick-up
We pick-up the basic types of furniture essential to help turning a living space into a home. However, they need to be in good, useable condition. A good test is to ask yourself: Would I give this furniture to a close friend or family member?
Gently used furniture is clean, functioning, free of cooking smells or heavy spices, and not in need of repair. Neither the Trumbull County Furniture Bank nor Thrift Store has the space, or facilities, to clean or repair soiled or damaged items. Please do not attempt to give us furniture that has rips, stains, tears, cigarette burns, water damage, showing signs of frayed fabric and/or pet hair.
Please send us photos whenever possible to help determine its acceptability. Your donated furniture will find its way into the home of one of our clients. As such, we will only accept items that can be used as intended and valued by the furniture recipient. As long as your furniture has been gently used, we’d love to accept it for the community in need.
