Buying a new custom fitted kitchen?

Part 2 –
Out with the old 

Before your new kitchen can be installed you’ll need to figure out what to do with the old one. Of course, if your old kitchen is in really bad shape then I recommend the dumpster. On the other hand, if it’s still in good condition and can be dissembled without further damage then try reselling it. You would be surprised how much money you can get for a good used kitchen with functioning electric appliances. Place an ad in Ebay, the internet or even the local newspaper. If you can’t find a buyer, then surely a donation to the needy would be greatly appreciated. Be sure to set a fair price and insist on having the new buyers come and see your used kitchen in person. Insist on having them dissemble it themselves under your supervision. Your kitchen consists of hundreds of pieces so what better way for the new owners to learn how to reassemble it, right? It not only saves you from doing it yourself, it also relieves you of any fault for damages incurred at time of disassembly. Plan the date for the sale and removal wisely.  Be sure you leave enough time for all the necessary renovations before the new kitchen arrives. If you are doing the work on your own, leave a few extra days to be on the safe side. Efficiently organize appointments with painters and craftsmen. Be sure they are aware of the date their work must be finished and make sure they are finished on time!
