At certain points in a homeowner’s life, you look around and realize just how much stuff you’ve accumulated over the years. Every space in your home - your garage, basement, shed, closets, and attic - is totally jam packed with items you’ve collected over the years. In an attempt to reclaim your space, you decide to hire a professional junk removal company to help you declutter.
Junk360 is a locally owned, veteran founded junk removal company. Our fast, reliable team has helped residents and business owners throughout the Twin Cities minimize, consolidate, and clean out their waste. Here are four steps you can take before our trucks arrive to keep this process quick, easy, and efficient.
1. Make a List
Start your process by making a detailed list of all the items you want to get rid of. Why? Because:
- It forces you to recognize what you own
- It can help identify items you think can be recycled
- Identifies items that can be donated or sold
- A detailed list will enable Junk360’s team to provide you with a more exact quote
As you make your list, work your way through every room in your house, your garage, and any outdoor storage space. This will ensure you don’t miss anything you want the Junk360 crew haul away.
Making a list helps you transition into step two: organizing. Use your list to divide your belongings into three categories:
- Throw away
Organizing your belongings into these three categories will make the junk removal process run more smoothly since the team from Junk360 will know what items to load and what not to touch before they even arrive at your door.
Additionally, consolidating your junk before Junk360 arrives will save you time and money. Breaking down boxes, placing smaller items into larger ones, and putting items in garbage bags will conserve truck space while keeping removal costs down.
3. Consider Resale Value
Before Junk360 arrives, look through the pieces you want to get rid of to determine if any of them might be worth some money. This even includes renovation waste such as:
- Antique wood doors
- Brass fixtures
Antiques or pieces of furniture that are in relatively good condition could be sold for a bit of cash. Check with modellers, collections, and local consignment stores. If you have the time or energy, you can brave the classifieds, Facebook Markets, eBay, or Craigslist.
