Getting there
About Engage Furniture Re-Use
We sell and collect good quality second hand and new donated furniture, small electrical items, such as TV’s and DVD’s, stereos, radios, kettles, toasters, microwaves, etc. (not white goods) and smaller household items from mirrors, books, pictures, kitchenware, taleware, Christmas decoration, bric-a-brac, etc. We collect and deliver all over West Somerset and sometimes a bit further. Collections are free and delivery charges depend on location and are charged per delivery, not per item. All furniture are sold on a two tier pricing system, meaning people on means tested benefits can buy furniture for a reduced price. The project was stared, to enable people on lower household incomes, to buy good quality items of furniture, whilst reducing the amount going to landfill sites.
