How to Get Rid of a Glass Coffee Table
Glass coffee tables can be both beautiful and practical additions to a living room. However, over time, the table may no longer suit your specific changing needs or style. If you’re looking to get rid of your glass coffee table, here’s how you can do it:
Step 1: Consider its Value
If you paid good money for your table, consider if its value makes it worth selling. Look up the price range you could expect and decide if this could be a worthwhile option.
Step 2: Decide How to Dispose of It
If you’d like to throw it away, be aware that glass is not an acceptable item for most curbside recycling bin pickup. You’ll need to bring it to a local recycling center to properly dispose of it.
If you have other disposal options, such as a friend or family member that may be interested in taking the table, then you won’t need to go through the recycling process.
Step 3: Prepare Your Glass Coffee Table for Sale or Disposal
If you’ve chosen to sell your glass coffee table, you’ll want to make sure it’s in an attractive condition for potential buyers. Here are some tips for making it sale-ready:
- Clean it off – Make sure to wipe down the glass with a cloth to get rid of any grime or dust.
- Remove any adhesives – Carefully remove any sticker residue with a simple solution of dish detergent and warm water.
- Polish it – Polish the glass to make it shine and look more attractive to potential buyers.
Step 4: List It for Sale
If you’ve decided to sell your glass coffee table, list it online on a site like Craigslist, eBay or in local listings. Make sure to include any special details about the item, such as its age and condition, and include multiple photos for prospective buyers.
Step 5: Arrange Pickup or Delivery
Once a buyer has been found, either you or the buyer will need to arrange for pickup or delivery of the table. If you’re doing the pickup, have a plan and materials ready to safely move it.
Hopefully these steps will help you with disposing of your glass coffee table. Good luck!
