When you’re in the middle of a home improvement project, whether it’s a remodel or simply a spring cleaning type of project, you’ve got to get rid of your debris and old junk somehow. It’s too much for your curbside bins (which you need for regular household trash anyway). Before you go hiring a junk removal service, wait—renting a dumpster is a much better solution. Read on to learn about the differences between dumpster rental versus hiring a junk removal service, and tips to make the most of it in Toledo, OH.
What’s the difference?
Junk removal services come to your home at a scheduled time and haul away your old junk. Some junk removal companies will donate any salvageable items to charities, too. Pricing depends on where you live, how much junk needs to be hauled away, how difficult it is to remove and a number of other factors. The junk removers show up at a scheduled time, and the removal process should take less than a day to complete.
Dumpster rental companies deliver a dumpster to your home and leave it for a scheduled amount of time. Once you’re done removing your trash, they’ll come haul it away. As long as you don’t go over the weight limit, you should be able to get a flat rate no matter where you live.
Here’s a closer look at why dumpster rental is likely to be the better choice:
- Cost effective: Junk removal companies often price their services based on how much junk you’re getting rid of—which is fine if you’re only removing one or two things. If you’re doing a major construction project or cleaning out decades of stuff, however, a dumpster rental is a more cost-effective solution. You choose the size that works for you.
- Work on your own time: Cleaning out your home can be a time-consuming, difficult and emotionally fraught process. Junk removal services require you to clean everything out and have it ready to go. If you find anything afterwards, you’re responsible for getting rid of it another way (or calling them back). Dumpster rental, on the other hand, gives you anywhere from several days to a month to clean out your home. This is especially handy for remodeling projects.
- Retain more control: With dumpster rental, you and only you are responsible for what gets hauled away. For example, if you’re cleaning out a loved one’s home, you can’t trust strangers to be able to set aside the potentially valuable (or sentimentally valuable) items for safekeeping. Doing it yourself guarantees that only trash gets taken out.
- More flexibility: Finally, with a dumpster rental, you have far more flexibility overall. From the amount of junk you can toss for a flat fee to a timeline that works for you, you might be able to get several projects done with just one dumpster rental.
Junk removal services might be a good option if you’re mobility impaired, but for most people, dumpster rental is the better option.
