What do you do when you’re facing what feels like a mountain of debris and have a limited budget? Large-scale cleanout projects, clearing estates, or a deep household purge can seem like impossible tasks to manage. Because these projects are daunting, we often think they’ll also be expensive to manage with professional assistance. The truth is, pro junk hauling services are cheaper than you think, especially for larger jobs.
Before you start making plans to secure the help of loyal friends and a vehicle large enough to make disposal runs, take some time to weigh the perks of professional service alongside the costs.
The Hidden Costs of DIY Junk Removal
If you have a truck and willing helpers, it can be tempting to start hauling away unwanted items yourself in an attempt to save money.
On the surface, this can often seem like the most economical course of action. Take a closer look, though, and what you find might surprise you.
First and foremost are the costs associated with renting a truck, assuming you don’t own or have access to one. You’ll also have fueling costs, which may seem negligible at first, before you factor in several trips to each separate location.
In the vast majority of cases, a large-scale cleaning project will yield waste of surprising variety. Electronics must be recycled at one location, paper and plastic at another. Donation items may need to be separated since charities that accept clothing may not accept used furniture. Even if you work diligently to minimize landfill waste, you’ll need to plan at least one trip to the nearest dumping site. Factor in the associated fees at various disposal sites and you’ll realize how quickly the costs increase.
Municipal waste management services often offer bulk garbage and large-item pickup, but these programs typically come with a number of rules and regulations that must be met in order to take advantage of them. Some will need to be scheduled well in advance, and there are some items municipal services simply won’t accept. Older refrigerators using a phased-out environmental hazard as a coolant must be processed before the appliance can be accepted. Newer models using a less hazardous coolant often can’t be accepted at all due to its flammability.
