Why Rent a Dumpster for Junk Removal Before You Move?

Because it’s simply the most efficient method for getting rid of stuff you don't want to take with you. Even after you’ve sold, donated or given away your more valuable possessions, you’ll still have plenty left over that you don’t know what to do with. Here are some of the most common options for junk removal before moving.

1. Dumpster Rental for Moving

A roll off dumpster lets you get rid of a variety of things in one shot. And if you have a lot left to toss, our bins go up to 40 cubic yards, which can hold 230 to 250 33-gallon trash bags of debris. With rental periods that run seven to 10 days, you have plenty of time to work without feeling rushed.

2. Junk Removal Company

A junk removal team does the heavy lifting for you. But you’re going to pay a premium for that kind of service. And you’ll still have to make sure everything is ready when they arrive, because they expect to be in and out in a day. You’re also limited to the size of their truck. A dumpster for junk removal might be more cost-effective and efficient for large decluttering jobs.

3. Donate Items

We recommend donating or giving away items that still have use — small appliances, gently worn clothes, nice décor. It feels good and you get a tax benefit. Just know that it’s on you to drop most of it off, and some items may end up in the landfill anyway. And if you have quite a bit to donate, count on a lot of driving time. With a dumpster for moving and junk removal, you never have to leave your driveway.

4. Yard Sale

With enough time and planning, you can make some extra money by holding a yard sale to sell your items. Just make sure to account for weather conditions and leverage social media and word-of-mouth to promote your sale. While a dumpster rental lets you get rid of everything in a few days, a yard sale is time-consuming, and there’s no guarantee it will all sell.

5. Weekly Garbage Pickup

Sure, it’s easy to leave stuff at the end of your driveway. And it’s definitely cost-effective since your garbage bill is the only expense — though some haulers may charge extra depending on what you’re tossing. But if you have a lot, it will take weeks to get rid of everything one can at a time. And local haulers don’t accept everything you can throw in a dumpster.
