Moving can be exciting and stressful, whether you’re selling your home, changing residences or renovating. Almost often, you’ll have some extra items that you don’t want to bring with you. A full breakdown of all alternatives for getting rid of unnecessary junk is provided below:
- Garage sale: A garage sale is a fantastic alternative if you want to try selling your stuff yourself. Advertise broadly in advance, up until the day of the sale, and price your stuff to sell. Through such a sale, you should be able to reduce your compiled junk drastically.
- eBay: If you have plenty of time before renovation/relocating, use eBay to sell as many of the orderable items as feasible. Remember, your goal is to get rid of your junk, not to make a profit from it, so price your products and set your minimums such that they get sold at first sight.
- Estate sale: An estate sale is a full-service solution if you have a substantial amount of expensive belongings that you will not be using. While the estate sale company will take a cut of the proceeds, they will oversee the entire process, making it far less time-consuming than alternative possibilities.
- Craigslist: This is your best bet for furniture and other difficult-to-ship things that you can sell for a profit. While it is a fantastic tool for connecting people, it is unregulated and unsupervised, leaving you to vet potential purchasers on your own.
- Call your local church or community centre: to see if they have any programmes where you may donate old furniture or clothing.
- Salvation Army: This is an excellent choice because they will send a truck to your house to take up your belongings. The Salvation Army are very particular about what they will and will not accept.
- Garbage collection: You’ll inevitably have some junk left over after selling or donating your belongings. If the amount is little, you can get rid of it right away. Simply throw it out in any of the scrap yards in harrow.
- Dumpster: However, the majority of us have items that don’t fit into any of the above categories. One option for the leftover rubbish is to rent a dumpster and get the help of friends or family to load it. You’ll need to do some math to make sure you acquire the right size dumpster for your needs. You will be charged for unused space if you order a dumpster that is too large.
