How to Avoid Early Furniture Disposal Hassles Before Your New Furniture Arrives - Megafurniture

How to Avoid Early Furniture Disposal Hassles Before Your New Furniture Arrives

Have you found yourself in a situation where you’ve ordered furniture online, say a sofa, and eager to make a space, you’ve already disposed of your old one? Unfortunately, due to unforeseen delays, your new sofa arrived two weeks late, leaving you without a place to sit during this period. 

How to Avoid Early Furniture Disposal Hassles Before Your New Furniture Arrives

We understand the excitement of getting new furniture and the need to make space for it. However, one common issue we hear from our customers is the early disposal of old items before their new furniture is delivered. This often leaves them without essential furniture if there’s a delivery delay.

Here’s a guide we’ve crafted to help you avoid this issue to ensure a smooth transition to your new furniture.

Key Takeaways:

  • Keep old furniture until new items are delivered to avoid being without essential items.
  • Double-check delivery dates and wait for confirmation before disposing of old furniture.
  • Consider renting temporary furniture or using foldable items if you’ve already disposed of old furniture.
  • Contact customer support for assistance and updates on delivery status if delays occur.
  • Be aware of factors like traffic and weather that can cause delays, and allow buffer time before disposing of old furniture.

Here are some steps and tips to help you avoid the inconvenience of early disposal:

1. Plan Your Disposal Carefully

Concern: "You need to make space for your new furniture, but what if there’s a delay in delivery?"

Solution: Timing is crucial when it comes to disposing of old furniture.

  • Whenever possible, keep your old furniture until the new one is delivered and installed. This ensures you are never left without essential items.
  • Look for disposal services that offer flexible scheduling. This way, you can arrange for the disposal of your old furniture shortly after your new items arrive.

2. Confirm Delivery Dates

Concern: "How can you be sure of the delivery date so you don’t dispose of your old furniture too early?"

Solution: Double-checking and confirming delivery dates can prevent unnecessary hassle.

  • Stay in touch with our customer support team for regular updates on your delivery schedule.
  • Wait for a delivery confirmation call or message before disposing of your old furniture. This ensures you have a clear idea of when your new items will arrive.

3. Temporary Solutions

Concern: "What if you’ve already disposed of your old furniture, and the delivery gets delayed?"

Solution: Having a temporary solution can ease the inconvenience.

  • Consider renting temporary furniture or using portable, foldable items that can easily be stored once your new furniture arrives.
  • Reach out to friends or family who might lend you temporary furniture. Alternatively, look for inexpensive options that can serve as a stopgap.

Solution: Being aware of potential delays can help you plan better.
