You can request up to four units per collection. A single item of furniture or a single electrical appliance will count as one unit, however sets of items such as a three piece suite, a table and six dining chairs or carpet and underlay from one room, will count as just one unit. Please check when you book your collection.

Items we do not collect

We will not remove anything containing glass.
