Wednesday – Sunday, June 10 – 14

We are here for you! Community Forklift is committed to staying open as a resource providing free and low-cost essential home repair materials to the community. June 10 – 14, take 25% off appliances with orange and blue tags, including dishwashers, ranges and cooktops, refrigerators, microwaves, stove hoods, wall ovens, washing machines, and dryers.  The sale includes both modern and vintage items and we offer a 3-week return policy on most Forklift appliances. We will continue to offer 5 days of free storage for most bulky items to give you time to arrange for transportation, if needed.

At Community Forklift, your well-being is our first priority. We are taking all precautions recommended by the CDC and are paying close attention to the situation. Please stay home if you are sick or at a high risk of getting very sick (learn what to do if you are sick here). Please wear a face mask and maintain a six-foot distance from other people when shopping in the warehouse. Please note our new warehouse hours: Monday – Sunday, 12 – 5 pm.

Community Forklift also offers online shopping and low-contact pickup through our new Community Forklift Marketplace! Shop online for items on our warehouse floor, come to our warehouse within five days of purchase, show your ID to the front desk associate, and we’ll bring your order to the loading dock while you get your vehicle! Please bring an appropriate vehicle for transport and help for loading. Due to social distancing, we will not be able to help you load items into your vehicle. See what’s available at!

Community Forklift provides free home repair supplies and other household essentials to people with low incomes through our Home Essentials Program. If you or someone you know needs appliances or other items but will have difficulty paying for them, please take a look!

Please note: discount does not include appliances from our ALCO consignment partner, water heaters, window air conditioners, other heating and cooling equipment, items listed online, or select specialty items. Items with missing or damaged price tags will not be sold. Discount may not be combined with other offers.


Every time you donate or shop at Community Forklift, you’re helping us lift up local communities through reuse. We turn the construction waste stream into a resource stream for communities in the DC region – by keeping perfectly good items out of the landfill, preserving historical materials, providing low-cost building supplies, and creating local green jobs.
