Schedule a Pick-up

The Habitat OC ReStores offer a pick-up service for multiple large item donations that meet our guidelines. All items must be on a ground level with easy access for removal (no elevators or stairs) and donations must be in good, clean, and resaleable condition. We do not provide any single item pickups and ask that there be 2 or more bulky items for us to accommodate. In order to make our pick-up service cost effective, we do ask for a voluntary monetary donation to help offset costs associated with providing the service. Please plan ahead as we are scheduling pick-ups about 7 days in advance.
