How to Prepare for Junk Removal

Congratulations- you’ve made the decision to finally get rid of all that junk you have piling up.  Maybe you’re doing a property cleanout, preparing for a home or office move, or working on a demolition. Now what?  Here are some of the steps you can take to make your junk removal go smoothly.

How to Prepare Your Junk to be Removed

Not sure how to prepare for junk removal? Before you call your junk removal service, try to take an inventory of what you have.  If you can, sort it into piles of things to keep, donate, and throw away.  This can be a difficult and emotional task- try not to overwhelm yourself.  Even sorting a couple of items at a time is a step in the right direction.  When you’ve finished sorting your items, put away the things you plan to keep to avoid accidental removal.  Bring any unwanted items suitable for donation to a local charity; if you are unable to deliver the donations yourself, Habitat for Humanity offers free donation pickups and furniture removal.  Once this is done, and all that’s left is rubbish, you’re ready to call your junk removal service.

Scheduling your Services

Once you have prepared and sorted everything you want to get rid of, you can go ahead and schedule an appointment.  Our team will come out to the property to assess your needs and offer you an upfront quote.  After you’ve received your quote and decided to move forward in the process, the team will schedule a time for your removal appointment; on the day of, the team will bring out the dumpster and assist in hauling.  Try to schedule a time when you can be present to supervise the process.

Tips to Make the Junk Removal Process Easier

On the day of the scheduled removal, a dumpster will be brought on-site as well as a team to assist with removal.  It is best to be present for this to avoid potential miscommunications with the team; if you cannot be present, be sure to clearly designate items for removal and keep them separate from anything you’d like to keep.  A common area, room, or pile marked for removal makes it easier for the team.  If there are items you cannot move to a common area (large furniture or appliances) that you would like removed, make sure the team knows to pick up those items and where to find them.  At the end of your appointment, be sure to double-check the space to ensure nothing is left behind or taken on accident.
