RE:SOURCE - Items we cannot accept

Whilst we welcome donations of good quality furniture, unfortunately there are some items we cannot accept. Please see the list below for more information.

Small Electrical Items
Unfortunately we are no longer able to sell these items as we do not have the resources to safety check and clean these items.

Mattresses
Unfortunately we do not have the space or capacity within our warehouse to carry out any cleaning of mattresses and our customers are reluctant to accept second hand mattresses without some level of cleaning being carried out.

Clothes and Bedding
RE:SOURCE does not sell these items, but you can donate these items to any Cornwall Hospice Care shop.

Damaged or low quality furniture
As we rely on volunteers to help us clean and repair items we often don’t have enough people to undertake anything other than minor repairs.  In order to be certain that we can sell the items that we collect, we need to ensure that they are of a good quality and are likely to be of interest to our customers.  This helps us reduce the amount of furniture that we scrap, which in turn saves us money.

PC equipment
PC equipment needs to be thoroughly cleaned of all prior material before being sold and as new IT equipment is relatively affordable and often updated, we find it harder to sell second hand IT equipment.  Therefore we can’t afford to invest in the additional expertise that we would need to carry out repairs and cleaning.

Furniture with woodworm
Due to the amount of wooden furniture that we store, we are unable to take the risk of introducing an item with woodworm in to our workshop.

White Goods
We are no longer able to process second hand white goods due to the extensive licensing and reporting requirements.

Baby and nursery equipment
Unfortunately we are no longer able to sell these items as we do not have the resources to safety check and clean these items.

Upholstered items without fire regulation tickets
It is illegal for us to sell any upholstered items that do not have fire tags.

Bikes
Unfortunately we are no longer able to sell these items as we do not have the resources to safety check and clean these items.

Gym Equipment
Unfortunately we are no longer able to sell these items as we do not have the resources to safety check and clean these items.

 

There are also a number of items that we have currently stopped accepting until further notice as we have too many in our warehouse and they are not selling quickly enough to warrant accepting any more at this time.

  • Wall/display units
  • Divan bases
  • Office furniture
  • Dining tables (with no matching chairs)

Large stock build ups cause problems for us as it reduces the amount of space that we have for storage and also increases our costs as we usually end up having to dispose of items that have been stored for too long.

If you have any queries please contact us for further information.
