Simplifying your Move with an EZ Phone Number to Help Clean Up!

I hate automated electronic messages being left on my voicemail. Usually I hit delete before the first sentence is completed by the annoying mechanical voice. However, the other day, I actually listened to one that I received. It offered some pretty good information. It was from the Salvation Army offering to send a truck out to pick up donations.
In Anoka County, there are many charities offering pick up service for gently used clothing, furniture and household items. Many of these groups like the Vietnam Veterans, Disabled American Veterans, Lupus Foundation and Courage Center come on a designated route on a rotating basis. The organization will mail or call to notify homeowners when a truck in the area and ask if they have any items that they would like to donate.

The Salvation Army however is has a new tactic for getting donations of clothing and furniture. They left this message: Call 1-800-SA-TRUCK to arrange a pick up! Now that is an easy number to remember.

As a Realtor, I am often asked by sellers where to donate furniture and other household items. The Salvation Army is not only a great organization to consider, they have made it simple to remember how to schedule that pick up!

So after staging your home or if you have leftover items from your moving sale, donate to the Salvation Army by giving 1-800-SA-TRUCK a call. It's a great way to simplify your move!
