You may be doing a large home improvement job or you may simply be clearing your property out of all the junk and trash that you’ve accumulated over the years. You know that you have more than you can haul yourself so now you have to decide how it will get removed. Do you hire a junk removal company to take care of everything or do you rent a dumpster and dispose of things on your own. There are advantages and disadvantages to picking one over the other.
The benefits of a Junk Hauling Service
The main benefit of a junk removal service is that there is very little work to be done by you. You don’t even have to haul the junk out to the curb. You simply point out to the company what you want taken and they haul it out. This means there is no heavy lifting on your end and no spending a lot of time going back and forth with the junk. A professional junk removal company can haul away things quickly and efficiently.
If you have items that are extremely heavy or awkward to haul, then you might want professionals handling the job. This keeps you or your helpers from getting seriously injured or your home damaged as you haul items out.
A junk removal service is also quicker. With a dumpster you have to have it dropped off and then schedule a separate time for it to be picked up. In the meantime, you have to have a place for the dumpster and it could be difficult to find an area that isn’t inconvenient for you or your neighbors. Depending on your location, there might not be a lot of options.
Other people might benefit from your junk. With many junk removal companies, they work to make sure any salvageable items can be donated to area charities. Any recyclable materials can also be removed and kept out of the local landfill. There are some dumpster companies that are also green, but an item that was once salvageable might no longer be if it’s at the bottom of dumpster and crushed by all the other debris you have.
You also might only have a few items that you need hauled away. You’ve spent the money on a dumpster only to realize most of the space is going to waste. You could have hired a company at a much lower cost to get rid of those items.
The Benefits of Using a Dumpster Rental
One of the central benefits of a dumpster service is that you can have it for an extended period of time, if necessary. If you have a big remodeling project or your clearing out a lot of rooms, you might need a place to throw things as you go.
You can schedule a junk removal company for more than one trip, but how often do you want to do this. If it’s going to be a number of trips than a dumpster might end up being the cheaper alternative.
Once you begin filling up the dumpster you may realize you’re going to have some space available for other items. This might encourage you to go through the house to look for items you no longer use or that are broken.
