Safetynet obtains good quality used furniture and distributes free of charge to those in need. A volunteer from Safetynet works with the recipient to ensure it meets their needs and schedule a drop time. Furniture deliveries include
- couches, tables (dining, coffee, bedside), chairs, drawers, mirrors, desks, bookshelves
- vacuum cleaners
- bicycles (we must know height and name of recipients)
- clothing (on request - usually done by visiting Safetynet directly)
- kitchen items like plates and small appliances (also usually by visiting)
- No cribs or car seats can be supplied by Safetynet as it is not insured to do this. However, we may be able to provide a contact for some individuals who do.
Furniture is provided free, but in order to help offset the cost there is a delivery charge depending on size and distance. Within Halton or Mississauga, to the curb: $200 for 2 large plus 3 small items. Hamilton, Brampton, Etobicoke add $75.
$300 up to 6 large and 3 small items.
You can trade - one large is worth 3 small.
It is generally a bit inefficient to deliver just a very small amount of furniture. If you just need one item we may be able to arrange pickup at our facility but generally we insist on delivering. Clothing and kitchen items are done by visiting Safetynet.
A “small” item is something one person can deal with like end or coffee table. Couch, dining table are big, dining chairs count as one small item when paired with a table. Kitchen items and clothes are free and we can throw them in to the delivery but usually they are taken at the end of a client visit.
There will be no visits to the furniture area, it will be walled off for safety, and items will be selected online, with pictures. You can go to http://qr.safetynetservices.ca/inv.php to see what we currently have in stock but you must register and accept the delivery cost before we will reserve items for you.
Extra costs if we deliver inside a place: add 50% to the delivery cost above (not to cost of purchased items like beds below). We can reduce that if it’s easy (i.e. quick drop on first floor of house).
Beds will be sold new, we will not be dealing with used beds generally. When done as part of a shipment above add $175 single, $225 double, $290 queen. A single bed of this type counts as a small item; double and queen are large items . Each bed includes mattress, box, six small legs. No frame.
For organizations like Halton Region, OW, etc we can generate an invoice, including a reference number. We generally issue it after successful delivery.
You must be referred to Safetynet by any organization, or visit and become a client directly, to be approved for delivery. Then we need to know (1) method of payment - referral or cash (2) whether it’s to curb or inside, and (3) days/times particularly during business hours that you can arrange to be present for delivery. We always confirm before delivery as well.
