Use a Reputable Company with Good References:
Whether you need to have junk or debris removed from your property – or whether you want to rent a waste dumpster for larger home remodeling projects, my biggest suggestion is to avoid companies that are unreliable.
When it comes to hauling away debris, typically we want the job done fast and without complications. Waiting for service people who don’t show up on time or who don’t respond to your calls will just add to the workload you already have.
So how do you know who you can trust?
I have found that the quickest and easiest way to do this is using a free agency that pre-screens companies and workers so that you know you are working with a reliable source. In short, the research work is done for you, and you don’t have to pay any extra money for the service.
It’s a win-win because the companies who provide great service get more business, and the customers get better service.
Compare Hauling/Clean-Up Services to Get the Best Price:
Another big reason why I like these independent agencies is that they enable customers to quickly and easily compare prices and services from multiple service providers at once. This is such a big time-saver (not to mention cost-saver).
Furthermore, when companies are put in a competitive environment like this, they aren’t in a position to jack up the price and overcharge you. If they do, they know they will lose the customer’s business to their competitors.
Basically, you can fill out a free online form and receive multiple quotes from junk-hauling companies or dumpster rentals and get all of the information you need without having to do the research yourself. You are instantly in a better position to negotiate a lower price and a better deal as well.
Don’t Waste Your Money:
One of the worst feelings is to find out later that you got ripped off. (We’ve all been there.) As customers, we simply want a professional to get the job done for us. We end up paying less in the long run.
Once you have found a high-quality clean-up service, your work is done! Companies like Home Advisor, Service Magic and Angie’s List can make the task easy. Whether you need to hire for ongoing service or a one-time job, having a reliable resource in your records makes it much easier for the next time your need items hauled away.
Why Hire a Junk Removal Service?
For some smaller projects, you may find it more cost-effective to take your unwanted items to the dump yourself.
Local garbage services in some cities even offer coupons for larger waste pick-up items like old appliances or large green waste loads. See if there are programs like these that you can take advantage of.
On the other hand, hauling several large loads to the dump can be both costly and time consuming – not to mention a lot of work! Getting free estimates first can be a good way to find out whether you want to hire someone or do the work yourself…
