When it comes time for your yearly spring cleaning, you may find yourself overwhelmed with the amount of stuff you have accumulated over the years. Perhaps you’ve got a big pile of old furniture, appliances, books, or other items that you don’t want anymore. Or maybe you’ve got a bunch of old tools that you no longer use. Whatever the case may be, you might wonder whether hiring a professional would be worth it. After all, isn’t it better to spend less time dealing with clutter and more time enjoying life?
Spring cleaning is often considered a chore, but it can also be a fun way to declutter your home. If you’re looking to clear out some space, consider hiring a junk removal team to handle things for you.
Hiring a professional service provider is always recommended, especially if you have lots of bulky items that require special equipment or multiple people to move. Professional junk movers can safely remove heavy items from your property without causing damage to your flooring or walls. They’ll also ensure that your belongings are properly packed and stored until they arrive at their new destination.
Below are just a few items you should call in professionals for:
1. Old Appliances
Hiring a professional to remove your old appliances is a smart choice. Items like dishwashers, ovens, and refrigerators are heavy and often require multiple people as well as equipment to move. Not to mention that moving these items can risk damaging your walls and flooring. A professional junk removal team can move these items for you without you risking your back or home. Additionally, they’ll most likely recycle the items making it a more eco-friendly way to go.
Like appliances, furniture is big, heavy, and your local trash company likely won’t take it if you put it out on the curb. You could try posting it online and seeing if any takers will buy it but when you can’t sell it, what do you do? You could rent a trailer and take it to the dump yourself but you can often hire a professional junk removal team to do it for you and it’ll cost you about the same amount of money it would cost to rent the trailer yourself.
Not all junk removal companies take pianos. But if you have one, you definitely don’t want to move this yourself. Pianos are made of parts that can often be broken down and recycled. There are also charities and music shops that may be able to refurbish your old piano and resell it to a new owner. If you’ve already contacted the local charities though and your piano can’t be refurbished, it’s time to call in the professionals to help you out.
4. Hot Tubs
Hot tubs take at least two people to move since they can weight up to 500 lbs. In additional to requiring multiple people, they also require equipment to get them out of your yard. When your old hot tub is no longer functioning like it’s supposed to, call in a team to help you and save yourself the backbreaking labor of lifting this yourself.
Electronics (e-waste) contain toxic chemicals that have to be disposed of properly. While many electronics are small and could be disguised in your garbage, larger electronics like TVs and computer monitors can’t. When you have old electronics, call a professional to help you out. When these items go to the landfill and begin breaking down, they release toxic chemicals that are terrible for the environment. Save your time, money, and the environment by simply calling in a team to help you dispose of your old electronics.
In short, it’s clear that professionals should be called for heavier items. But it’s also a good idea to call a team of experts when you simply have a lot of items to get rid of and don’t want to spend your whole weekend driving to and from the dump.
