Things To Know Before Hiring a Junk Removal Service

Home / Things To Know Before Hiring a Junk Removal Service

Rather than suffer amidst the stacks and piles of useless items in your home, it’s a good idea to contact a junk removal company to come by and rid you of them once and for all. But if you’ve never hired a junk removal service before, then you may be uncertain as to what to expect. Here, I think anyone who’s unfamiliar with the junk removal process should know the following aspects before hiring a company to get rid of his junk:

-Types of Items the Company Will Take

Whether your house is loaded with unwanted furniture or random cardboard boxes whose contents are a mystery to you, you should make sure that the items you want gone are ones that your junk removal company is willing and able to take. Pretty much every junk removal company has a policy stating that it will not transport items that are flammable; so if you’re looking to have that propane tank removed from your property, then you may need to come up with a different solution. For all non-combustible items, our philosophy is that as long as they will fit in our trailer, we’ll be happy to haul them away. Feel free to find more information at debris

-How to Prepare for Your Junk Removal

In order to ensure that the junk removal process goes smoothly, it’s a good idea to ask questions about what you’ll need to do to prepare. Our customers are usually pleasantly surprised to learn that they aren’t required to do very much when it comes to gearing up for junk removal. However, your specific instructions for preparation will depend on your situation and the items you’re looking to eliminate from your property.

-Proper Licenses and Insurance

The typical junk removal job tends to involve hauling away items that are heavy, cumbersome, or a combination of both. While a good junk removal company will always do its best to protect your property throughout the process, from time to time, accidents do happen. For this reason, it’s a good idea to ask your junk removal company if it has the proper licenses and insurance in place. As long as your junk removal company has insurance, you won’t have to worry about covering the cost of property damage in the event of an unexpected mishap. Of course, this isn’t the only reason to ask your junk removal company if it carries insurance. If a company employee ends up getting injured on your property over the course of a job, then you could end up being held financially liable in the event that the company isn’t properly insured. Before you agree to any type of service, make certain that your company has insurance, and confirm that it actually covers these types of scenarios.

-The Cost of Removing Your Junk

While junk removal services are reasonably affordable, it’s natural for you to want to know how much money you should expect to spend on the process. In my experience, the cost of removing your junk will mostly depend on exactly how much you have. At Haul That Matters, we typically charge by the load, but we will also offer discounts for multiple loads. To get a good sense of what you’ll have to spend on junk removal, call up a local company and ask for an estimate.

-How to Donate Some of Your Unwanted Items to Charity

Just because you no longer have any use for certain items in your household doesn’t mean that someone less fortunate won’t want them. If some of the belongings you’re looking to get rid of are in reasonably decent shape, then it never hurts to ask your junk removal company about the possibility of facilitating a donation. A good junk removal company will usually be happy to accommodate this type of request. By hiring a team of professionals to come in and eliminate your unwanted junk will make your renovation project simpler on multiple levels. Now that you know what to ask before hiring a junk removal company, it’s time to stop procrastinating. Make the call, and bring yourself one step closer to a junk-free home.
