When most people consider junk removal, they’re perfectly happy to have someone come pick up their junk and haul it away…but they don’t want to pay to make it happen. We understand; while our rates are perfectly reasonable, it can be hard to pay for someone to take your waste away.

But in the end, it might not be that bad. In fact, hiring someone for your junk removal could actually end up saving you money. Let’s take a look at a few scenarios in which this could happen

You Don’t Have To Pay For Storage

While the average house size has doubled in the last 40 years and nearly every new house has an attached garage, one out of every 11 households still keeps a storage unit. There are more than 40,000 facilities in the US alone, and it’s one of the fastest-growing industries around. The country is spending about $25 billion a year just to keep all of that stuff.

Why? Part of it is the influx of super-cheap stuff from overseas that just seems too good to pass up, or the fact that Americans are decorating more for holidays beyond Christmas (that 6-foot inflatable leprechaun has to be stored somewhere!). Other times it’s because people have inherited a houseful of stuff from a relative and simply don’t know what to do with it.

Some stuff is worth keeping, but much of it could simply be pitched. In most cases, the cost to store what’s in a storage unit is worth so much more than what the stuff is actually worth. Wouldn’t it make more sense to pitch some junk and not pay $1,000 a year for self storage? And if you can’t pitch the stuff that’s in the self-storage unit, have us haul away some junk around your home and bring the stuff in the storage unity back onto your property.

You Could Avoid A Fire

The junk that people keep often ends up being fire hazards. Maybe it’s newspapers, maybe it’s a car part that’s leaking oil. Doing a good cleaning of your garage could mean you find long-forgotten caustic (and highly-flammable) chemicals that should head to a hazardous waste center. Getting rid of it ensures that your home is safer and is less likely to catch fire; the cost savings there are pretty obvious!

You’ll Avoid Pests

Having anything stacked beside a house is a surefire way to attract pests. Mice and rats love to hide in big piles of junk, and termites could be brought closer to your house if you have a rotting pile of lumber nearby. If you get rid of their favorite places to hide, you won’t bring them near in the first place. Junk removal or a dumpster rental could help you avoid hiring an exterminator.

You Can Avoid Fines

Sometimes the stuff that people have around the house could lead to problems with the city or homeowners association. It could be a derelict car or boat, or maybe it’s a pile of PVC pipe that’s been sitting at the side of the house for the past couple of years.

That’s when the fines and liens come, which could be avoided with a simple call to a junk removal service. We’re more than happy to come haul away anything that could be getting you in trouble with a legal entity.

That’s Not All!
