House Clearance/selling furniture

We are leaving Geneva and need to sell/get rid of our furniture at the end of the year before our flat rental contract ends.

It would be very convenient if a company who resells furniture would come, give us something for our stuff and take it all away in one go.

I'm talking the big things of course, beds, wardrobes, sofa etc. It's good stuff, but we are not looking to make a lot of money on it (although we are not quite ready to give it all away for free).

Are there companies that would do this in Geneva? What would they be called in French?

Thanks!

I know the various Trocs will come and pick up your stuff, but it has to be really good stuff--no IKEA, etc.

There's a Troc in Lausanne and one in Annemasse, which would be the two closest to you.

Here's the website: http://www.troc.com/fr/deposer_en_magasin.html

HIOB is another one to try as they take all sorts of things, but they won't pay you for it. Check their website www.hiob.ch to find the nearest store to you.
