Wallender states that many people give away their old cabinets for free if they are going through a remodel. Hauling away cabinets is an annoying and expensive process, so anyone willing to take the cabinets for the workers saves them time and money. He also adds a caveat that it is important to consider the chance that the cabinets may be damaged in the removal process, especially if the cabinets are made out of medium-density fiberboard.

ASA Builders Supply suggests checking for good quality, reduced-price showroom cabinets from local stores. These cabinets are more likely to be in better condition than those torn out in a remodel and of superior quality. They warn that, when purchasing used cabinets from a homeowner, they may not be honest about the history of treatments done to the cabinets.
