We appreciate all our customers and donors who contribute and recycle
WHAT DOES THE BENEFIT STORE TAKE?
- Office furniture in good condition.
- DESKS, CREDENZAS, FILES, BOOKCASES, CHAIRS, TABLES, PRINTER STANDS, COMPUTER DESKS, DRAFTING TABLES, DRAFTING CHAIRS, WHITEBOARDS, RECEPTION DESKS, BOXED MISCELLANEOUS OFFICE SUPPLIES.
WHAT ITEMS WON’T YOU TAKE?
- We hesitate from taking metal desks, cubicles, and electronics at this time, but we have made exceptions in certain cases.
- We come out if you have a fair quantity (4 or more pieces) or a small quantity (1 or 2 pieces) that are high quality items. (It’s too costly for us to do small pick-ups of 1 or 2 items).
- We cannot carry items up and down stairs so we ask that the items either be on the ground floor or there be an elevator we can use.
IS THE BENEFIT STORE INSURED?
- YES. We can provide a certificate of insurance upon request.
CAN I JUST LEAVE THE ITEMS OUTSIDE?
NO. We cannot accept items that have been or are outside.
WILL YOU TAKE EVERYTHING?
- We CANNOT promise that we will remove all the furniture that is scheduled to be looked at.
WHY CAN’T YOU TAKE IT ALL?
- We have limited space in our store which means we have to be somewhat selective.
WHEN SHOULD I CALL TO SCHEDULE A PICK UP?
- We also ask you to call a few days ahead of time to schedule a pick up, particularly towards the end of the month because we book up quickly.
WHAT HOURS DO YOU COME PICK-UP?
- The Benefit Store offers pick up times during the morning hours between 10 AM to 12 PM and in the afternoon between 2 PM and 4 PM.
CAN YOU COME AFTER HOURS?
- NO. We usually cannot accommodate after store hours pick ups but again, exceptions have been made for particularly large or quality items.
DO I GET A RECEIPT?
- NO. The Benefit Store is not 501C3 and the donation cannot be used as a tax write off. In most cases, the items have been depreciated already so a receipt might not be of use. You are helping by keeping bulky items that are still in good condition from going to the land fill and in return you don’t have to deal with the hassle and cost of moving and removing heavy furniture.
WHAT IF I HAVE ANOTHER QUESTION?
- Call us any time at (972) 470 – 0700!
