How to Prepare for Junk Removal

Sep 20, 2022

While our team at 1st Class Junk Removal Services will take care of everything once you give us a call and a go-ahead to begin your project, there are key steps that you can take before we get going. 

Take time to help make the junk removal process go as smooth as possible with these helpful hints and tips:

Survey your stuff: Review the room or space that you are seeking to clear out before you contact our team so that you do not get rid of anything that you want to keep! Set aside items that you are keeping or make a list that details what you do not want removed to help the process.

Valuable items: Within the cracks of your attic, garage or basement may lay other people’s treasures! Anything antique-like, such as old fixtures, doors, knick-knacks, handles or hinges may bring you a few bucks if you want to post on an online resale site.

Organize by next step: You can save on your junk removal services by organizing and doing some of the work yourself. It is a great idea to create three piles as you review your clutter: what to keep, what to get rid of and what to donate. If you take care of some of the smaller and easier stuff, we will take care of the rest.

Beyond the basement: While you are attacking the garage or attic, it can be a great idea to tackle your closets as well. If we are helping you take away your unwanted belongings, then take advantage of our team coming out to you. Maybe our pending arrival will be just the push you need to finally clean out your closets!

Know your role: If you have waste that may be covered by your homeowner’s insurance policy, such as storm debris, it is best to explore this avenue first. Our team can take care of any kind of clutter and junk, except any hazardous materials. 

Take a deep breath: We know it can seem overwhelming to take on a project such as decluttering and removing unwanted items, but it is worth it. As a professional service, we can help guide you through any doubts and help get you to a cleaner and less messy home and property.
