How To Get Rid Of Unwanted Items Without Disposing Of Them

House Clearance Surrey

Decluttering or performing a general house clearance Surrey is the perfect way to regain some extra space and get rid of anything unwanted. Whatever the reason you will likely finish the task with an array of items you plan on getting rid of. Why throw them away when you could make money, help someone else or the planet? 

Donating To Charity 

One of the easiest ways to get rid of unwanted items includes donating them to charity. Allowing you to get rid of it whilst also helping a charitable cause. Throughout the UK there are an array of charity shops and causes that will happily take books, clothes, old tech and other general homeware. Most charity shops provide ‘bins’ or ‘boxes’ outside even if the shop itself is shut, so you can drop off your unwanted items when it suits you. Make sure to find out what the shop accepts first and the condition they should be in.

Selling Online

In the past decade, the internet has transformed the entire planet forever. Apps and websites such as Facebook Marketplace, eBay, GumTree and Shpock for example allow users to list their unwanted items for collection or delivery to interested buyers across the country and the world. You can pretty much sell anything from your home online, making it the perfect opportunity for sellers looking to get rid of unwanted valuables. 


Most homeowners tend to get rid of furniture after a while, primarily because they have found something new. Trying to sell the furniture online may be difficult depending on its quality or design, why sell it when you could transform it into something new and extravagant. Repurposing old furniture is the perfect activity to do with your kids. Stripping the paint and adding a layer of clear wax will bring the wooden furnishing back to its former glory. Wax doesn’t only help to protect the wood, it also shows off its natural colours. You could even consider painting the piece, perhaps you have re-painted the room? Repainting the furniture to match is a great way to create a bespoke look without you going to the hassle of finding something new or disposing of your current piece!
