As a furniture salesperson, Jake found his customers frustrated with their inability to purchase ‘new’ when they didn’t have a way to get rid of the ‘old’. From that frustration, along with Jake’s frustration about losing sales, Get It Gone was born. Get It Gone was founded in 2004 with an idea, a pickup truck, a borrowed trailer, and 50 bucks to register our name with the state. As the business grew, Jake left the sales world for the junk world! Forming strategic partnerships over the years has taken us from New England to SW Florida. Jake’s dream is to make Get It Gone a household name in the areas that we service. With our phenomenal team, we are getting there, one satisfied customer at a time!
Our Community Partners
We will be happy to transport any of your donations to the charity of your choice. We charge a modest delivery charge, of course but all donations are made on your behalf when requested. We also have established solid charity partners in a variety of areas. Our New Hampshire location works closely with Goodwill Industries, Savers, Families in Transition, Friends of Forgotten Children, New Horizons Soup Kitchen as well as local hospitals; Catholic Medical Center, Elliot Hospital and Lawrence General Hospital. Our Florida location works closely with Streets of Paradise, Sarasota Scullers and more.
Our Florida location partners regularly with Goodwill Industries, Habitat for Humanity, Bikes for Vets as well as Sarasota Memorial Hospital and Venice Regional Bayfront Hospital. Local organizations like So Venice Civic Association, Sarasota Scullers are just a few that we consistently help.
We are grateful to have been in the position to donate thousands of pieces of PPE to these hospitals and our neighbors at the height of the Covid-19 Pandemic.
We continue to work hard to “find a home” for anything that still has some life left in it and also know that when all options are exhausted, all items are discarded so per local, county and state regulations.
