Donate Furniture

We Pick Up Furniture Donations!

Donations Process
We ask that anyone who would like to donate to Uhuru Furniture & Collectibles use this process. Send us an email at with the following information:

• At least one (1) picture of each item you want to donate
• Your full name
• The best phone number to contact you
• The location you would like your items picked up from
• The best date(s) to have your donations picked up

*Please ensure that photographs (especially of upholstered items, i.e. couches, chairs) afford a clear, uncluttered view of the piece of furniture.

We generally respond by e-mail within 1-2 days of receiving the photos, and can typically schedule pickups within 3-7 business days. We pick up donations Wed-Sun. Our earliest time slot for pickups generally begins at 10:30am and our latest is over by 6:00pm. Unless we have spoken with the donor about having items left outside to facilitate social distancing, we pick items up from inside the home, and will not accept items that have been left outdoors(except for outdoor/patio furniture).
You may also drop donations off at our store during the hours when we are open(W-Sun 11am-6pm). This is particularly recommended for donations which consist of small non-furniture items (e.g. kitchenware, art, small appliances) which may not qualify on their own for a pickup. For furniture dropoffs, we encourage you to still send photos of the items.
