Well, we have reached the end of January. We hope that you have found a lot of useful tips this month. Today, for our last blog, we are going to give you some tips about making junk removal as stress-free as possible.
Stress-Free Junk Removal Tip 1 – Consider the Kind of Junk You Need to Have Removed
There are different things that a junk removal company will take. However, it’s important for you to confirm that they’re able to take the items you have. Remember that the heavier items are going to cost more. Below are some of the things that a junk removal company will take:
- Electronics Equipment
- Renovation Debris
- Scrap Metal
- Yard Waste
Questions You Should Ask
- How will the junk be hauled?
- What space is needed for the vehicle
- Are there permits required for the containers?
Stress-Free Junk Removal Tip 2 – Check Weather & Schedule
If you’re able to, schedule it on a day without rain. It’s a pain to do junk removal in bad weather. Plus, they might cancel due to bad weather.
Not only that, but you should schedule it when you’re able to be home. if there’s nothing else you have to do that day, you’re not going to feel like you’re rushed if there are unexpected circumstances. It’s best if you’re there the whole time to ensure everything’s hauled and if they have any questions.
Stress-Free Junk Removal Tip 3 – Label Everything Clearly
Be sure that you put everything that you want to be removed in one place. The other option is to have it marked clearly. Find out what the company prefers for you to do.
If there are items that you want to donate, be sure that they’re clearly labeled. Sometimes a junk company also works with charities and will take the donations for you, so you don’t have to go.
Stress-Free Junk Removal Tip 4 – Prepare the Space
It’s possible you might have to clear the way to your door, move your vehicles in the area, or put everything in a single place. Make sure that you tell them if there’s anything tricky.
Does your hauler want you to put everything outdoors or perhaps they don’t mind carrying it from the house? If you can’t move the items yourself, you should consider this when choosing a company.
Stress=Free Junk Removal Tip 5 – Junk Hauling or Dumpster Rental?
Junk removal services bring containers, fill those containers with the items, and then get rid of the items. When you rent a dumpster, it’s dropped off at the house. You then fill up the dumpster over a certain length of time and then they take it away.
Dumpster rental’s a great choice when you are cleaning out a room or home renovations.
Stress-Free Junk Removal Tip 6 – Ask About Restricted Items
When you are asking for a quote, ask the company if there’s anything they won’t take. The answer will vary based on the company.
Some of the common things that won’t be accepted are:
- Open paint cans
- Chemicals such as gas, solvents, and other types of hazardous and/or toxic waste.
- Materials that contain asbestos
- Oil tanks and drums
