The day finally arrives. You get a phone call from the delivery driver, and your new fridge will be there in under an hour. Perfect You go into the kitchen, empty the refrigerator, unplug it, pull it out from the wall – and then what? Here are five ways to get rid of your used appliance.
Updating your kitchen can be much more affordable than you might realize. Local online classifieds are an easy and ideal way to sell your used washer, used dryer, or used fridge. Going this route offers several benefits. First of all, the money you get from selling your used appliances can offset your new appliances’ cost. You can often get up to 60% of your new appliances’ price, making that new upgrade feel even sweeter. Also, the person buying it will need to come and pick it up, saving you the trouble of having to remove it yourself.
The easiest way to get rid of your old appliance is to call a professional appliance disposal company. They have years of experience and expertise to handle your request in a fast manner. You don’t have to lift a finger, and your burden is gone. If you live in Toronto and the surrounding area, you can trust Max Appliances to take care of your needs.
Local thrift stores will often come and pick up your used appliances. Then they, in turn, will either gift the machine to a person or family in need, or they will sell the device to the general public at their store and then use the proceeds towards charitable aims. Either way, this is a very nice gesture on your part, and it ensures that your old fridge gets to live on and help another family as it has helped you and yours.
Maybe you have a family member or friend who could use the appliance you are replacing. It might be a bit older or outdated to you, but for a friend with a broken fridge, or no fridge at all, it could make a huge difference and will feel like an upgrade for them as well. That lovely feeling you’ll get when your new refrigerator arrives will be even more delightful because you will know that you just gave that same great feeling to someone else.
Before you decide to get rid of your old kitchen appliance, think about whether you should be getting rid of it at all. Could it improve your basement? What about your workshop, office, studio, or garage? The best solution may be to move your old appliance to another area where it can continue serving you faithfully. This will save you the time and effort required to get rid of it in the first place.
Maybe your old appliance is genuinely broken, and its life has come to an end. Don’t fret. Contact your local junk removal specialist. Generally, the costs associated with having a used appliance removed will be minimal, as these sorts of companies will typically scrap the metal and parts for a profit. Alternatively, you can take the appliance to a local scrapyard or junkyard, where they will typically give you the value of the scrap metal on the spot.
There are also some other options, but these methods are the most beneficial for you, your wallet, and the environment.
