I second kijiji with one caveat. Kijiji is littered with old furniture. Everyday there are tons and tons of new postings. Depending on the condition of the furniture there's a good chance you won't get any takers if you're putting it up for sale. Plus you'll likely deal with tons of people asking you questions, tons of no-shows, etc. But if you put it on kijiji using the free section, you'll likely have someone come and pick it up asap.

Neither my husband nor I can lift anything so we were thinking of hiring "just junk" to pick it all up. I hate the thought of just throwing the stuff away though, as it's in decent shape so I looked at furniture donations. Problem is they only pick up from the driveway. Just junk seems to solve the problem of moving the stuff up from the basement and getting rid of it but I was hoping there's another way where it ends up being donated.

This is exactly what I was thinking....some scammer from Kijiji arranges to move the furniture out and then conveniently falls or something on our property. I decided to get a junk removal service and just get it done. They say they donate whenever possible so I'm good with that.

Hercules decided to lift it himself and put a leg through the wall as I walked in the door. I was f-ing pissed. Was our first house and I had patched a TONNE of walls to get them perfect.

Sad puppy dog eyes. Was a 3 piece set and he "accepted" help for the other two pieces.

I'd be more concerned at your wife's willingness to let some random dude from Kijiji into your home.Jerico wrote: ↑Mar 20th, 2017 1:19 amI sold a couch set on kijiji once and got home about 10 mins late but my wife let the dude in to see it.

My wife could kick his and my arse at the same time while making dinner. No worries there.
