One of the top reasons why a dumpster is rented is when homeowners decide to move and shift their house. The amount of garbage produced during the moving process and the quantity of useless items lying around catching dust in the house is more than anyone anticipates. Maybe you’re keeping that old teddy bear your grandma gave you on you 3rd birthday because it had an emotional connection to it or maybe you’re just a collecting junkie and love to keep old things around.
Either way, you’re taking more than what you need to your new house.
Start afresh and clean in your new home by getting rid of all the mess and unnecessary clutter. If you’re not sure how to handle the mess, check out these top ways to get rid of items before moving:
Conduct a Yard or Garage Sale
A yard sale will not only help you give away items that you don’t need but help you make a small amount of profit as well. Although not as popular as they once were, these sales do drive a lot of traffic and there’s a chance someone in your neighborhood would want to use that old couch you’ve put on sale at half its original price.
Sell Them Online
Online websites can help you sell used items and also make profits for you maybe even better than a yard sale would.
Donate it to Charity
An even better way to get rid of your household items before moving is to donate them to charity. This way those in need will have items they might never get the chance to buy. For donation you must make sure that the items you’re donating meet the required standard of quality.
Gift Them to Someone
If you have an item that you think will find a new home at a friend’s or family’s place, then you can always give it to them as a gift.
If you have an item that is impossible to give away, your best choice is to dump it in the dumpster. Rent a dumpster from a reputable dumpster rental company to assist you in your moving process.
