What to look for in a junk removal company
Each home owner, renter and real estate professional will, at some point in time, need to carry out a house cleanout. House cleanout and junk removal normally involves a lot more than simply cleaning floors, dusting or sprucing up of a property. A lot of major cleanup, heavy lifting of unused items and junk hauling is involved. You need to be very selective and strategic to successfully carry out this level of house cleanup. Below are some tips you should consider when looking for a junk removal service.
1. The junk removal company must offer free, on-site estimates
No quality removal firm will ever offer you a phone estimate for this level of cleanup. The company should be ready to work with you on-site to establish the scope of work and the amount of debris that needs to be removed. In addition to establishing the cost of each phase of the cleanout, the company’s estimate should state what the disposal fees are.
2. Does the company provide recurring junk removal services as well?
Several scheduled junk pickups may be necessary if the property is large or in the case of certain foreclosures due to the amount of debris. For certain properties, periodic, scheduled cleanups may become necessary for either public safety purposes or for aesthetic reasons.
Doing Businesses The Right Way
3. Can the company get on site quickly and complete the job fast?
The time available to carry out cleanout and to remove junk is often limited by the fact that property sales are highly time-sensitive. For this reason, a junk removal company should be able to respond and work fast to complete the job within the time allowed. Efficiency and flexibility are important aspects of a professional junk removal firm.
Finding Ways To Keep Up With Removals
4. Does the junk removal company donate or recycle items?
For most people and cleanout companies, junk removal simply involves picking up of furniture, trash and other household debris and hauling it off to a landfill. However, a lot of the junk and debris resulting from your house cleanout can still be used and can be donated or sent to a recycling center. Find a junk removal company that pays close attention to recycling and goes out of its way to donate any items that may still be useful to someone else.
5. How is the junk disposed of?
Your local authority has particular requirements that govern the proper handling and disposal of the debris and junk from your clean out operation. Whoever you task with your cleanout and junk removal must be well versed in the local regulations that govern waste disposal. A professional junk removal firm will ensure that it uses the right methods and disposal sites, while trying as much as possible to recycle.
