When Making A Big Move Means Making A Big Amount Of Junk

When Making A Big Move Means Making A Big Amount Of Junk


People in the US are always on the move but with the current housing market, more people are moving than ever. And moving often means getting rid of junk.

Moving from one home to another can also mean being on a tight schedule and taking time to get rid of junk and debris can be a problem. So, what can you do?


Moving is a Big Job and Moving Can Mean Big Piles of Junk

What many Americans discover when they move from one home to another, especially if they've lived in the prior home for more than a few years, is that they have a lot of "stuff." 

The numbers of people in the United Stated who moved in 2021 are a bit lower than in previous years due to the ongoing impact of the coronavirus pandemic and economic issues. In fact, according to one source, in 2021, as many as 26.4 million people in the U.S. moved, which is about eight percent of the population.

Based on data from the U.S. Census Bureau, 2021 had the lowest percentage of people moving in one year ever recorded.

On the other hand, while the overall number of moves has been declining, the number of people moving long distances is increasing. For example, the percentage of Americans who moved to a different county in the same state  was 40 percent, while 17 percent moved to a different state in 2021.

And these numbers are the highest they've been since the early 2000s.

Why do we move? There are three top reasons according to the U.S. Census Bureau:

  • 46 percent of all moves in the U.S. was for housing. This includes people buying a home or moving somewhere better and/or cheaper.
  • 25 percent of all moves were for family reasons, such as getting married or divorced.
  • 16 percent were for work-related reasons, like moving for a new job or to retire.

And all of these moves - especially those with families - create large amounts of things that have to be gotten rid of.

Which means they need to services of a junk removal company.


Whether You're Moving Out or Moving In You Need Junk Removal

It's the rare individuals or families that have no unwanted or unneeded items or belongings.  And it is during the process of packing up to relocate to a new home that these things come to the surface, so to speak.

In fact, it's not unusual for people who are moving to make some hard decisions and choose to get rid of many things that they simply don't want to pack up and transport to their new home. It could be old furniture, old clothes, kids toys, exercise equipment, or any number of other items that are now relegated to the household "junk" pile.

The problem is that these things can't be left in the old house or even stashed in the garage, as tempting as that might be.

So, what do you do about the junk removal?

At just under 8 feet wide and 12 feet long, our unique MINI Dumpster has a footprint that is similar to a full-size pickup truck. That means it can easily fit in your driveway or on the street along the curb in front of your home.
