Donate Your Items

Ok so once you have tried to sell your items and if no one wants them you can can offer them to a charity, please note charities have a limited amount of space in their charity shops so they need to be very selective in the items they take, they are also governed by the same rules and regulations that apply to any other business selling second hand furniture.

Foam Fire Regulations, Electricity Compliance Regulations, Gas Safety Tests etc, some charities offer to collect up to 15 items for free but this offer only applies to items they know they can sell, for example if there are only 3 items in your property they know they can sell they will only take the 3 items.
