Bulky uplifts

We can collect furniture and other household items that are too big to fit into your wheeled bins.

Before you book your uplift please consider whether your items could be used by someone else. Local companies may offer a free collection of beds, sofas, tables, chairs and bikes in good condition.  Only items suitable for re-sale will be collected, so collection is not  guaranteed.
