What To Do After A Clearance
If you or someone you know has recently had a home clearance overhaul, the question may be asked, ‘what to do with all this junk?!’
A house clearance is an excellent way to do thorough cleaning and getting rid of unwanted items. The big challenge after all that hard work is done is deciding what to do with the unwanted goods. It is important to act quickly so that you aren’t left with a pile of unwanted junk sitting in your home. There are many solutions to deal with your junk removal or waste disposal after a domestic clearance. Get started with some of these great ideas:
- Hire a skip: during the clearance, skip hire is a fantastic solution. This is a convenient way to throw as you go with your unwanted junk. Anything that is broken, damaged or resembles some kind of rubbish can be tossed straight in the skip. The convenient thing is that after the hire period, the skip and all your waste will be taken away to be disposed of by someone else.
- Donate: if you find items that are still in good condition but you don’t want to keep them anymore, why not consider donating them to charity. Many second hand charity stores accept clothes, shoes, toys, sport equipment, books, household appliances and sometimes furniture. Before you donate anything, make sure it is clean and functioning. Always ask yourself how the item could be used by someone else. If it doesn’t have a purpose, it is better to throw it out.
- Garage sale: having a garage sale after a clearance is a great way to make some extra dollars after all that hard work. Once again, it is important to make sure everything is in good condition and clean before trying to sell it. You never know what kind of treasures other people will find amongst your trash. If anything doesn’t sell in the garage sale, you can then donate it to charity.
- Furniture removal: if you have unwanted furniture after a clearance, there are a few options as to what to do. If the furniture is still in good condition, you can try selling it rather than donating it. Many online classified websites such as eBay or Gumtree are a great starting point to sell furniture. You might also have some luck selling furniture in a garage sale. If the furniture is broken or damaged, it should be taken to the tip or recycled. If available, leave the furniture out for hard rubbish collection.
- Call the professionals: if you’re overwhelmed with the amount of junk left after your home clearance, why not consider calling in a house clearance company. Companies such as these offer services to take away your clearance waste. This is an efficient and quick way to see the junk removed in a cost effective and environmentally friendly manner. When hiring a professional company, make sure you have a rough estimate of how much needs to be cleared away. This is the best way to ensure you get a good value for money quote. It is generally better to overestimate so that you aren’t left paying extra or having items left behind because they can’t fit. These services can be found in commercial clearance companies or man with a van services who specialise in waste removals.
