Goodwill Pickup Service
Currently, we offer pick up service at no cost for individuals donating furniture and/or household goods so we can prioritize assistance to donors with oversized items.
In order for us to pickup, your driveway or street needs to be able to accommodate our truck which is 13 feet and 1 inch tall and 26 feet long.
Your pickup will be scheduled at the first available opportunity. On your pickup day, you will be required to sit your donations outside for our drivers to collect. More information is on the pickup request page.
