During the move out process, you will find that you have a lot of stuff that you just don’t want to take with you. Whether it’s broken, unusable, torn, or just in your way, you will find that there are likely piles of junk that you won’t be sure how to deal with in a proper fashion. Will you need to take multiple trips to your local dump or recycling center to make it happen?
If you’re looking at the options that you have available for dealing with your junk, you may be looking at your local waste removal service or trash pickup. But, many times they won’t take items in bulk at all. What are you supposed to do at that point? That’s where disposal services can give you a hand. Let’s take a look at disposal services and what they can do to help you with everything that you need to
What Are Disposal Services?
Disposal services are pretty much what they sound like. There are junk removal services, movers, and recycling services that you can schedule to come in and take care of whatever it is that you’re trying to accomplish.
They usually come in and haul away everything that they tell you to – kind of like a moving company, but instead of packing it up, they just take whatever junk you have and get it to where it needs to go. In some instances, you can find companies that will even sort through your junk to determine what can be donated, what should be thrown away, and what can be recycled.
Which Moving Companies Offer Disposal Services?
There is a handful of moving companies that also offer move-out cleaning and/or disposal services as a part of what they have to provide for their customers. While this is a less common service to find, you will sometimes find professionals that will come out and help you with whatever junk removal that you may need.
The local moving companies that are most likely to offer these services are the ones that offer other move-out and move-in services, like cleaning the place you move out of or move into. They may also have a relationship with a junk removal or recycling company that can come in and removes the junk for you as part of whatever contract that you put together.
Should I Get Disposal Services With My Move?
This is a huge question that a lot of people are curious about as they start working out the details of their move. While it is, ultimately, your choice as to what you do, you will find that there are a lot of benefits to having someone else deal with your junk.
Here are just a few of the reasons that you, at the very least, should consider getting disposal or junk removal services as a part of your move.
- It saves you a lot of time. You don’t have to spend all of that time going back and forth from the dump, and you can take care of other things related to your move instead. You can reduce your stress and know that the literal dirty work is going to be taken care of for you instead of requiring you to put time aside for it yourself.
- It means you don’t have to find a way to get large items to the dump. Sometimes, you need to wait for “large item” days in order to be able to haul them over there – and during your move, you don’t have time for that.
- It reduces the chance of taking it with you on the move. Moving companies can deal with those things their own way, allowing you to worry about the more important parts of your move.
How Much Does Disposal Service Cost?
It all depends. As mentioned earlier, not all companies offer disposal services, but there are some other services outside of movers that can help you out when it comes to disposal services. Many times, it’s an additional fee in order to be able to get this worked out, and that price is going to fluctuate based on a variety of factors.
First, it depends on how much you’re getting rid of. If you’re getting rid of several truckloads of items, then it’s going to cost a lot more than if you’re just getting rid of a few things that you aren’t able to haul on your own.
It also depends on when you need to get the items out of your home. If you’re looking at doing it on the same day that you’re moving, you may have to pay additional rush fees or pay for more employees to come and take care of things.
If you can get done ahead of time and/or on a weekday, you are going to find that the rates are definitely lower and more manageable. In short, schedule it well and schedule it ahead of time in order to be sure that you get the best rates for it.
Lastly, it depends on the company. Some companies will charge a flat fee based on how much stuff you have; others will charge you based on an hourly rate. If they have to sort your items out, they will charge a bit more than other companies will as well. You can talk to them ahead of time and be sure that you know what you’re paying for and how much it’ll cost you.
