Moving out, cleaning the shed, and getting rid of big items can be expensive for many homeowners. Unfortunately, it’s either people can’t afford proper waste disposal or they are just too busy with work and have no time to do it themselves. The good thing is, the waste disposal industry is becoming a big market, so you’ll find it easy to find a service provider that’s affordable and easy to fit in your budget.
You can even make it cheaper to get junk removal leads by following the tips below.
Rubbish for disposal should be accessible
One of the first questions that professional removalists ask is the location of items for disposal. This is one of the factors they consider when giving out a quote for the total cost of waste disposal. If you have the time and means to put your rubbish on your lawn, push yourself to do it to save on time and the cost of hiring a removalist.
Another step that you can do is to make sure that all of the things you’re getting rid of are located in one area so that the removalists won’t have to spend extra time to collect all the items and load them onto the truck. Doing this will also eliminate confusion and will help your professional removalists do the job quickly and smoothly. More importantly, this will also ensure that they won’t mix up the stuff you wish to dispose of and items which you want to keep.
Segregate the waste if you can
You can also save on the cost and shorten the duration of disposal by segregating the waste before the removalists arrive so that they won’t have to sort through a massive pile of waste. It’s really easy to do so because all you need to do is separate the recyclables from those that aren’t, and by dividing big items from small ones. This will result in faster loading and it’s easier for the removalists to load the heavier items first.
Flatten items as much as you can
Another thing that removalists ask when computing for their quote is the approximate measurements of your rubbish. If you can, compress the things that you’re going to get rid of so you can get a smaller metric computation and a cheaper removalist cost. You can also dismantle old furniture or break it into smaller parts, so it will take up less space and will save you a lot.
Just remember that if you’re going to dismantle the items, pack all the small and loose parts together so they won’t be forgotten.
If you’re still unsure what you need to do in preparation for your scheduled waste disposal, you can always ask your removalist for suggestions on how you can help make their work faster and easier. Usually, they will advise customers of what to do and how to prepare the items for disposal but if they don’t, don’t be afraid to take the initiative to ask the question.
