A Simple Plan: Removals

How to choose a junk removal company

All renters, homeowners and real estate professionals will need help with a junk removal project at some point. Cleanout is much more than just dusting surfaces, cleaning floors and sprucing up of a home. Junk removal involves thorough cleaning and heavy lifting of debris and unused items. A selective and strategic approach is necessary when handling this level of house cleanout. Consider the following tips before signing up to a house cleanout service.

1. The junk removal company must offer free, on-site estimates
You should never rely on a phone cost estimate for this type of cleanup work. The home cleanout company will come over to the site and work closely with you to determine how much debris is likely to be removed. In addition to establishing the cost of each phase of the cleanout, the company’s estimate should state what the disposal fees are.

2. Does the company provide recurring junk removal services as well?
For certain foreclosure cases and bigger properties, the large amount of debris that a cleanout generates means you may need several scheduled pickups. Because of the location of a property or the conditions of its sale, it may be necessary to carry out periodic junk cleanout for purposes of aesthetics or public safety.

3. How fast is the junk removal company in completing the job?
The time available to carry out cleanout and to remove junk is often limited by the fact that property sales are highly time-sensitive. A cleanout company needs to be able to be on-site quickly and work fast to complete the job in the required time. Efficiency and flexibility are important aspects of a professional junk removal firm.

4. Donation and recycling of reusable items
In most people’s minds, house cleanout is simply the process of collecting old or unused furniture, trash and debris and dumping them in a landfill. Few people consider that many of the items and debris from a junk cleanout can be donated or recycled. Find a junk removal company that pays close attention to recycling and goes out of its way to donate any items that may still be useful to someone else.

5. Is the disposal of junk done properly?
Your local authority has particular requirements that govern the proper handling and disposal of the debris and junk from your clean out operation. Whoever you task with your cleanout and junk removal must be well versed in the local regulations that govern waste disposal. When you use a professional junk removal firm, you can rest assured that the company follows the required regulations and tries as much as possible to recycle the debris from the clean out.
