Testimonials

 

"I was so impressed with Chris, Bridget and the team that I felt compelled to let you know how wonderful they are. They arrived on time and very quickly had my entire kitchen demolished. I wanted to say how impressed I was with the care they took with my floors and the rest of the house and how organized and efficient they were. It does the heart good to see people care so deeply about what they do. Thank you very much!" - Brenda

 

"It was really great meeting your crew yesterday and I'm so happy you were able to take so many items. Please pass along our admiration and gratitude to your crew for the amazing work you are doing as volunteers!" - Mary

 

"Just wanted to thank you and your team for the awesome work done during the removal of our donated kitchen.  Your team took lots of care, were helpful, informative and respectful of our home during the entire process.  We have already told all our friends, family and our neighbourWe will reach out to you again if we want to donate our appliances." - Joanne

 

"The salvage crew led by Chris Bava did an amazing job, very fast, friendly and clean. I very much appreciated it. I tried to give each one of them a $10 tip, but they refused to accept the tip. They said that my donation was a great gift in itself. I was very impressed with their generous attitude." - Dilip

 

"The team was great and I have been telling anyone that I know of that is doing a kitchen renovation to contact their habitat location." - Lyndsey

 

"I was totally pleased with the process. Glad to be able to help someone else."  - Doris

 

"Crew was great, neat and really quick and careful not to do any damage to walls furniture removing cabinets." - Dave

 

"Fantastic organization. The professionalism of the crew and the care they took in my home, unbelievable. I would recommend this to everyone I know. Very pleased that the donated materials didn't go to waste; that it went to a good cause." - Richard

 

"I found your volunteer team to be superior in their professionalism, care and quality of work, when compared to the various other contractors I've hired. They brought all the tools they needed with them (I've had contractors show up who rely on me to provide them with a ladder for example.) They were extremely polite and overall exceeded my expectations. I wish all the paid contractors I've hired were so good."

 

"We try to donate in many areas. The salvage program is one area where we feel we can make a difference. We include it in all of our homeowner info startups (before construction). Appreciate what you do." - Dave

 

"Excellent program. Keep up the good work! It is so good to see things being reused and recycled instead of taken to the dump." - Lucy

 

"Noel was our contact and leader for the whole process. He was wonderful to work with. His crew were all very friendly, quick and clean. We appreciated the chance to mutually benefit both ourselves but also Habitat. I would recommend to everyone." - Heather

Tax Receipt Information

We issue tax receipts if a total donation exceeds 100$. We tax receipt all items of value that are donated.  The value is based on a Standard Pricing Guide that we follow, which is based on the highest value we believe we can sell your donations in our ReStores. That value is assessed by one of our staff who is trained in such appraisal of donations. From there the accounting department works on issuing the Tax Receipt which you can expect to see within 3 MONTHS of Donation Date. If any questions or concerns arise after receiving the tax receipt, please feel free to contact us.
