Furniture Assist must move.
Despite being told that we could remain in the back of the building during construction, we have been told to vacate the building by August 31st. While we are looking for a new location in this area, we do not have one now. If the new facility is not available on September 1st, we will have to close until the new facility is ready.
Therefore the following plans are announced.
The last day for Sunday drop-offs will be Sunday August 9th.
The last truck pickup will be Wednesday August 12th.
The last distribution day for our clients will be Sunday August 23rd.
Hopefully, the closed period will be short.
If you can save your items till we get our new facility, we will need a lot when we begin again.
Thank you for your support and understanding!

Items may be brought to our facility when we are open.  We ask that any items that fit into a car be brought to us.  Items that require a truck will be scheduled, however we have limited internal ability so we work with local movers and clean out services.  A pick-up fee of at least $50 or more will be charged depending on size of the load.  The $50 fee covers one pick up of up to five pieces of furniture with each additional piece costing $5.  For limited use items such as pianos, hospital beds, etc., we will pick up these items only when a need is identified.

  • Union County pickups are typically on Wednesdays. 
  • If you require pickup specifically in Bernards Township only, please call (908) 766-9748.
