Driver Discretion Policy

The Complimentary Donation Pickup service is a cost that is incurred by Furniture For A Cause. Donations eligible for the FREE pickup service, must be usable by another consumer and in good structural condition. Cosmetic damage is common and expected.

**However, if your furniture is deemed not saleable in our furniture store, our drivers reserve the right to refuse the pickup of the furniture.

Below is an example of some of the items that may be refused by FFAC guidelines given to our drivers. If you are concerned your item does not meet these guidelines, feel free to upload a photo of your item on our online donation form and we will review the item to verify eligibility for the FREE Pickup Service.

Visual Damage

Soiled Cushions and Upholstery

Excessive soiling on upholstery often means that the customer who purchases this item will have to reinvest in costly upholstery. Exceptions may be made if a cushion is detachable or if the frame is a high end frame that will be cost feasible for the reupholstery.

Broken Frames/Springs

These are costly repairs (if a repair can be made at all). Often if the structure is no good, then the piece is not safe or usable for another person.

Broken Recliner Mechanisms

These parts are hard to find, and often costly. The overall function of the recliner is not usable. Also if the frame is bent, the chair is not usable.

Torn Upholstery

This also leads to costly reupholstery expenses. Exceptions may be made for removable seats or cushions which may be reupholstered without having to reupholster the entire piece.

Broken Drawers/Doors

In some cases if your piece has damaged drawers or doors, the piece may not be repairable and/or usable by another consumer.

Broken Chair Spindles & Legs

When the structure of chairs are broken the chairs are unsafe and not usable by another consumer. However, if you have a set of chairs, we may just discard the single broken chair.

Broken Table Legs

In some cases these may be repaired, however if the damage cannot be repaired, it is unsafe to use this item by another consumer.

Damaged Veneer

On some cases we may be able to repair veneer or the damage may be in a spot that is not noticeable. However, if damage is very noticeable and/or extensive, we will not be able to offer complimentary pickup service.

Non Visual Damage

In addition to the above, the following items are also NOT eligible for the FREE Donation Pickup:

  • Pet Odor
  • Smoke Odor
  • Mold/Mildew/Moisture

Thank You

We appreciate your consideration of Samministries Furniture For A Cause for your furniture donation. Please note you may still be eligible to bring in these types of items to our store, they just may not be eligible for our FREE Donation Pickup as the cost to pickup and the cost to repair the item often exceeds the value of the furniture.
