Charity Services

From our home in Leeds, West Yorkshire, Greenbox Removals is incredibly proud of the work we do with various local charities in the Leeds and Yorkshire area, helping those in need in a variety of different ways.

During house moves, we quickly became aware that people often leave unwanted items behind or decide they no longer need / don’t have space for them in their new property. These could be anything from white goods such as fridges, freezers, washing machines and dryers to furniture such as beds, wardrobes, tables, desks and chairs.

Many of these items are in great condition but even the ones that aren’t may only require some refurbishment.

As a result of this, we teamed up with local charities to try and give these items to people who really need them. Furniture and appliances can make such a difference to people who can’t afford to buy them and can help set them up in a new home. We have even supplied duvets, pillows, crockery, cutlery and pots and pans.

Giving back

Greenbox is not just a clever name. In addition to helping those in need, giving these items a new lease of life ensures they do not go to waste. Our team hates seeing things being thrown away and will do our best to avoid taking items to landfill where possible, by trying to find them a new home.

    Giving back

    Through our work with local charities, we also realised supplying donations was not the only way we could help. We also offer low cost services to our associated charities. We have helped them pick up and deliver items, organise events and even relocate to new premises.

    We are always on the look our for new charities to support so if you’d like to discuss this with us, please get in touch!
