This service is currently for collecting furniture and electrical items. We can accept bags and boxes of other small items, if you are donating furniture and household items.

To donate bags or boxes of clothes, books and smaller items, you can drop your items off at your local shop.

Before you start

To cover the cost of your FREE collection service and raise funds, we need to be able to sell the items you donate in our shops. This means items must meet legal and health and safety standards, and the items are in good saleable condition.

The items you would like to donate to us:

  • Should not have obvious stains, rips, marks and odours
  • Must work (particularly electrical items)
  • Must have all parts in place (e.g. no missing doors on wardrobes, no missing drawers on a chest of drawers).
  • Upholstered items have fire labels. By law, we cannot sell upholstered furniture in our stores without a fire safety label.
  • Upholstered furniture has cushioning, padding or fabric covering.


If you are donating upholstered furniture to our stores, you must make sure that:

  • There is a fire safety label firmly attached or sewn into every item you donate
  • There are no rips or tears that expose the inner fabric, as this means it no longer meets fire safety standards.


If you have a lot of large items to donate or are having a clear out, you may require our house clearance service instead.  For more information click here.

Items we can’t collect to resell:

For legal and health & safety reasons, with a FREE collection we can’t accept items we can’t sell, like:

  • washer/dryers and certain models of washing machines
  • oil-filled heaters without a thermostat
  • hard-wired electrical heaters
  • children’s items such as cots or prams
  • ivory or fur
  • upholstered items without fire safety labels
  • used personal items
  • safety equipment such as helmets or harnesses
  • weapons, flammables or hazardous liquids.


Your Lewis-Manning van crew may be able to take some of these items that we cannot sell, for a disposal and tipping charge. If the items are unsellable we may be able to dispose of these items for a charge.
