Disposing of Your Old Cabinets

Man Cooking Meat On A Gas BbqWhen remodeling your kitchen, you necessarily have to get rid of your old kitchen cabinets.  Many people don’t consider all of the options when getting rid of their old kitchen.  While you can go the route of throwing them away to make room for your new RTA kitchen cabinets, there are alternatives.  Read on to find out which is the best one for you.

Online Sales

There is a heavy market for secondary kitchen cabinets out there.  Depending on the state of your kitchen cabinets, you can even make some money on them, rather than just throwing them out.  We suggest taking pictures of your old cabinets while still installed, and putting up an ad on a website such as Craigslist, complete with a removal date, but stipulating that they are for pickup only, no shipping, and that the “buyer” is responsible for hauling.  That way, you can get those cabinets taken away for nothing, and, if your cabinets are in good condition, you can even make money on the deal by selling them.  You will have to be careful with the removal though, beginning with the countertops, unscrewing them and taking them out, and then the bottom row of cabinets, followed by the top.  It will be a good idea to get some furniture movers wrap (the big roll which looks like saran wrap) to wrap it all up for transport.

Removal Service

There are many cabinet removal services out there who can do the job for you.  If you aren’t really the DIY type, or don’t want to worry about it, you can hire a company to come in and demo your entire kitchen for you to get your kitchen ready to install your new RTA kitchen cabinets.  These services oftentimes will take all the cabinets in your kitchen down, remove them from the premises, and often donate them to a good cause or organization that will give them to a needy household, such as Habitat for Humanities.  This is a great option, and normally isn’t very expensive.  And since you saved a bundle on getting your RTA kitchen cabinets (here’s the spot! https://www.rtacabinetstore.com/RTA-Kitchen-Cabinets/ ), you are still ahead!

Beer, Barbeque and Facebook

One way to get rid of those old cabinets is to offer them up on Facebook as garage cabinets or firewood.  The only stipulation is that you are going to have to have a party where you supply the beer and barbeque (chicken or pizza works as well) and have a get together to rip out that old kitchen!  You would be surprised at how many people will sign up to come, and you will have that old kitchen out in no time flat, and have a great time doing it!

When looking for your new cabinets, though, you might want to sign up for your no obligation, completely free kitchen design consultation with one of RTA Cabinet Store’s professional designers at https://www.rtacabinetstore.com/free-kitchen-design-help.  It can save you a lot of time, and you could have your old kitchen out and the new one in over a weekend!  How great would that be!
