One way to find a secondhand furniture store is by searching the Better Business Bureau's website for "used furniture." The Better Business Bureau provides a catalogue of local stores that meet the Bureau's accreditation requirements.
Using the Better Business Bureau's website to locate local secondhand furniture stores gives users a variety of important information regarding which store to chose. First, users can better trust the businesses they are patronizing because, as the Better Business Bureau's website describes, the businesses that are accredited must meet strict standards for trustworthiness and treating the public fairly. Second, the Better Business Bureau's website gives users more concrete information about a store, including the address and phone number, a link to the store's website, and a map with the store's location.
In addition to the information and rankings provided by the Better Business Bureau, the website collects reviews from patrons. These reviews are easily accessible from each business' individual page via a tab near the top of the page. The Better Business Bureau website also offers users the opportunity to submit their own reviews, as well as file complaints against businesses if they are so inclined. Also, the website allows users to see overall trends in customer reviews for a given business.
