Schedule Furniture Pick Up

Press Red Button To Schedule pick up with Central Furniture Rescue Volunteers. We do ask For a Free Will donation for us to Pick up. Please think about what it would cost to have the items removed by a professional when considering the donation.

Please remember we are 100% volunteer run organization and not professional movers and are not able to move your items from inside your home. We ask that you have your items ready for pick up in Garage, driveway or porch.

The need for us to pick up furniture is greater than our current volunteer drivers and helpers can handle. If you have the ability to deliver please do.

Please complete the form and our donations coordinator will get back to you as soon as we can.
