What Do We Pick Up?
We pick up all of the items on our accepted items list. However, we reserve the truck for pickups that meet the following requirements:
- The items are at ground floor/garage level and are in clean, gently used condition
- The items are large and require a truck to move
- You have a large quantity of items
Due to the cost of transportation, the staff required, and our goal of being diligent in how we use our resources to raise funds to support Habitat’s building projects, we must limit our donation pickups to items that meet these criteria. Please email photos of the items you would like to donate - this will help expedite the process. You can send photos to email@example.com. To schedule a pickup please call (845) 565-1789, ext. 142.
Our Donation Ambassador reserves the right to decline any donation that might be unsuitable for the ReStore or may pose a safety risk to our donation pick up team.
The following requirements must be confirmed prior to your pick up:
- We cannot take furniture apart, move items from upper floor levels, disconnect appliances, pack china/household items, remove artwork from walls.
- All items to be donated must be at ground floor/garage level, all small items or breakables must be boxed, wrapped and ready to travel.
