It’s high time to trash all that junk garbage you’ve collected. Maybe it’s from a recent remodel, replacement furniture, or, just stuff you’ve managed to accumulate over the years no longer in use. Whatever it might consist of, it’s definitely got to go. What you might have discovered is that the old saying about one man’s trash being another’s treasure isn’t always true. In fact, you could well have been unpleasantly surprised by finding that you’ll actually need to obtain a permit and/or pay other fees.
The truth of the matter is, there’s quite a lot consumers can’t simply, “throw away.” Try putting an old television alongside your curbside trash bin and you’ll see it there after collection day, not just once, but time and again. That goes with old paint cans, electronics, old home workout equipment
, and so much more.
Top Reasons to Hire a Junk Removal Company
Sooner or later, you’ll be debating whether to rent a roll off dumpster or to call in a junk removal company
. Well, as you probably imagine, there’s no simple answer to this seemingly easy decision. Both will come with a cost, but which is the best choice? It’s a decision that so many consumers face, usually when confronted with the same type of situation.
Few homeowners are equipped with the proper tools and knowledge to haul the waste off to the proper facilities on their own. It requires a large, weight-bearing vehicle that in many cases they’ll need to fill and empty several times, the fuel for multiple trips to the correct disposal facilities, and, in some cases, the permits to drop off waste at those facilities. —Angie’s List.com
It’s also not at all unusual for you as a consumer not to have the necessary equipment, or, manpower to get rid of that junk. This is precisely why you’re now trying to make an informed decision about which will best work for you. Here are some reasons to hire a junk removal company:
- You’re more than likely to make an inaccurate calculation. When you rent a dumpster, you’ll do so based on cubic load size. If you’re not confident with your calculation, you’ll make a mistake which will cost you more in one of two ways — you’ll order a size that’s too small and have to rent again, or, rent one that’s too large and pay too much.
- You really don’t have the helping hands to handle the job. When you bring in a junk removal company, you step back and the work is done for you. Conversely, a dumpster rental company will only drop off the container and pick it up. You have to do the labor on your own. If you throw in something that’s prohibited, you’ll have to take care of it, or, if you don’t fill it correctly, that will also present a problem.
- You can’t sacrifice space on your property. Renting a dumpster means having to give up space on your property for as long as it takes you to fill it. If you live in an HOA community or one with strict code enforcement, you might face problems with just having the container on your property.
Another consideration is if you do or don’t have the time. Because it’s your responsibility to fill the dumpster, you’ll have to take into account how much time it will take from start to finish. That and the time it takes to accept delivery and wait for inspection and pickup afterward.
