Author: Nathan . | | Categories: Estate Cleanout , Handyman Service , Junk Removal

Junk removal might seem like an easy enough task, but removing it requires proper planning if you have it in large quantities, especially during moving time. Many items are not accepted at landfills, and some junk items can be disposed of in other ways than merely dumping. When you consider the number of items you have that could be recycled, reused, donated, or contain harmful hazardous substances, junk removal can be quite difficult. 

At Clutter To Cash, we understand that junk removal can be quite a challenge. Junk removal can be viewed as a stressful or laborious task, but with a little preparation, you can handle your junk removal and disposal very easily. 

As experts in junk removal, we’ve created a handy checklist to help you get rid of your junk with as little stress as possible. Follow our checklist for easy junk removal so that you can get back to the other important things in life.

Separate your items into categories
It would be best if you made it a point to separate your junk into different categories, i.e., recycling, donation, trash, and resale. Not only will this ensure that that you get reusable items to the designated places, and also generate some easy cash for you. There are also hazardous materials that cannot be disposed of in a landfill. Remember to keep them separate and find out if your junk removal company knows how to deal with them. 

Label your items
Use post-its or sticky notes on all items to be taken for junk removal, recycling, donation, and resale. This will help us ensure that we take them to the right locations, e.g., recyclables to a designated location, donations to a charity, etc. Donations can also help your economy and helps you get a tax deduction for the total value of the items you donate. You wouldn’t want to miss out on that due to improper labeling, would you? 

Send photos via text or email ahead of time
Send pictures of the junk in advance. This helps us evaluate it and give you a better quote or estimate. It can also help us decide on tools to bring and manpower. If doing consignment, make a list of all items for resale and send pictures to let us know if we can use the items as credits on your invoice. 

Have everything in one room
For ease of access and efficient junk removal, ensure that you keep all your junk in one room that is easily accessible. Failing to do so will mean more labor time for your junk removal crew, which means more money spent. If possible, try to keep it all in one central location that is closer to your driveway or curb.
