4 Crucial Steps for Home Junk Removal

What is Junk Removal?

Junk removal is a service provided by a number of Canadian companies that allows you to get the junk and garbage out of your home in one easy, convenient trip. With prices based on the size of the dumpster or garbage truck required and the duration of the term, you can find the perfect junk removal strategy for your unique needs.

These services are ideal for a variety of situations. For example, those who are downsizing houses and know they have a lot of junk to throw away could use a dumpster or waste truck to get their junk out of their house quickly. For those who are renovating or adding an addition onto their home, dumpsters can be a handy way to get rid of drywall, scrap material, rotten wood, and old foundation pieces.

Junk Removal in Canada

With a steadily-increasing cost of living in Canada’s major cities, the cost of space to store your belongings can be tremendous. Canadians simply have “too much stuff,” which has made it difficult to find suitable accommodations. For garbage, junk, and other belongings that are not in good enough shape to recycle or refurbish, junk removal is a convenient and simple option.

There are a wide variety of junk removal services – each at varying price points – that can help you with your project. At Junk Works, we tailor our services to your unique needs so that the cleanup and removal of your junk is a simple and satisfying process, rather than a stressful financial burden. Here is a breakdown of the four crucial steps you must take to make your junk removal experience positive:

1) Choose the right service for your project

The most important decision involved in the junk removal process is for you to pick what specific service you require. Many junk removal companies offer a wide variety of full-service and self-serve junk removal options, and each of these has its own benefits. At Junk Works, our team of experienced junk removal specialists can help you find the perfect option for your unique situation.

First, our full-service option offers unlimited junk-removal possibilities. Regardless of the material, this option includes a team of movers who will come to your home with a junk truck and transport all of your junk in one trip. We appreciate you sorting your junk, but we also put an emphasis on eco-friendly junk removal, so we have disposal practices that include recycling material whenever possible. This option is perfect for those who cannot physically move their junk, or for those who simply want it gone as quickly as possible.

Alternatively, you can also explore self-service junk removal options. In this case, our team will drop off a dumpster at your home and you can fill it with junk on your schedule. When it is full, we will come and pick it up. These dumpsters are available in a range of sizes suited to virtually any home renovation project, and our team of representative is happy to give you a quote based on your unique needs.

2) Sort your junk for easy disposal

Sorting the materials you plan to dispose of is crucial, both for the environmental sustainability of junk removal and for your own convenience. Many junk removal companies only allow certain materials to be disposed of in the same container, so be sure to read the sorting guidelines before throwing assorted junk in the dumpster.

When downsizing, moving, or organizing the belongings of a loved one who has passed away, you may find a wide variety of items that need disposal, and sorting them based on the proper protocol is the easiest way to get these things out of your home. At Junk Works, we are happy to take a variety of items off your hands, but it is much easier when it is sorted and accessible.

3)  Whenever possible, go green

Junk removal companies have a number of policies and practices in place to minimize the outright waste that occurs in the industry. When downsizing or getting rid of junk, always look at what items can be reused, recycled, or refurbished, rather than sent to a landfill. Many home items simply need a hint of TLC to be fit for use again, and this effort is much more sustainable than simply trashing the item.

Although we understand that some items are beyond the point of recycling, it is important to explore alternatives to junk removal whenever possible. For example, see if any local charities are willing to take old furniture, toys, clothes, or other belongings off your hands so they can refurbish them and sell them at a later time.

4)  Read the fine print

Some storage companies operate with hidden fees, services that are not included at the posted face value, and other unfavourable details that can only be found in the fine print. Because of this, it is important that you read and understand every aspect of your junk removal contract before sending payment for the service. At Junk Works, we are happy to work with our customers to tailor our services to their needs, and we operate with a transparent fees policy, so you always know exactly what kind of fees to expect.

Junk removal does not have to be an expensive, exhausting process. At Junk Works, your satisfaction is our top priority, and we are happy to work with you to customize our services based on your needs.
