Collections, deliveries and house clearances


Emmaus Hertfordshire collects donated furniture from across the county and Barnet.  Collections are free and items are sold through our second-hand furniture stores. Our large Emmaus vans will Vans 079collect your furniture on a morning/afternoon which you will have booked with your local Emmaus store.  Please contact your local Emmaus shop to arrange collection and be aware that we have certain criteria for items and some shops have up to a two week wait for a collection slot!  We have two time slots for deliveries/collections: 9.30am till 12.30pm and 1.00pm till 4.00pm.  Unfortunately we will not be able to give you a more specific time than these slots but if you give us a contact number you can request a call from the driver when they are on the way to you.


There is a small fee for deliveries but the average waiting time for delivery is only a couple of days.  Again your delivery morning/afternoon will be booked with your local Emmaus store but please make sure your item fits before delivery!  In the event that an item doesn't fit, Emmaus offers a credit note service.

Electrical Items

The Workshop

We have a small workshop which can sometimes fix things, or sand the donated items back to their original wood.  However our workshop does not mean that we can fix everything and accept all furniture no matter what it's condition!  This workshop is mainly a training area for companions on basic woodwork and restoration.hammer on chairterry sanding 2

Unfortunately we cannot fix, repair, sand or re-paint furniture that hasn't been donated to the charity.
