Removal service

With Furniture Bank, you can have your mattress or sofa removed and donated to families in need across the Greater Toronto Area (available in the GTA area only), allowing you to directly impact your community. That’s no stress, heavy lifting, or problem solving for you.

Two people lift a yellow armchair into the back of a delivery van that contains other furniture such as tables and chairs.

The price of removal service depends on whether we remove a mattress ($80) or a sofa ($90). It’s an easy way to make space for your new purchase and one less thing on your to-do list. What you pay funds Furniture Bank's charitable activities as they work to end furniture poverty – one sofa and one family at a time.
