Although the calendar might not officially agree, it certainly does feel like summer! As the temperature begins to rise, folks are doing whatever they can to beat the heat. The old school method is to get someone with a big wrench to open up the fire plugs on the street. Beyond that a dip in a pool or spending the day at the local air conditioned Cineplex will do the trick. The last thing anyone is in the mood for when it gets hot is hard work but that doesn’t mean the work can stop.
Take for instance cleaning out the clutter of your home. If you’re looking to make room for some summer visitors or are just sick and tired of looking at all that junk then you might want to spend a few hours deep in the trenches of a summer clean-up project. Once that is done, you can truly enjoy the summer but first things first: What are you going to do with all that junk?
One possible solution would be to rent a dumpster and use that to get rid of your stuff. Sounds like a good idea, right? After all, most of what you would be throwing out would be too bulky to fit in your regular garbage can otherwise you would have tossed it out long ago. However, there are some hitches in this plan that you really need to think through.
Right out of the gate, when you put an empty dumpster anywhere near your house you’re practically inviting all of your neighbors to partake as in dump their own junk. This is what happens when there is an empty dumpster on the block. All of sudden your neighbors will decide to take advantage and clean out their own clutter. The really sad thing is that you’re paying for the dumpster and these folks don’t even ask if they can dump anything in. It’s not a stretch to think that by the time you get around to throwing out your own junk you’re dumpster will already be filled up.
When you rent a dumpster you’ll be at the mercy of that rental company’s terms. This could mean being forced to keep that dumpster for several days. Will you need a special permit if the dumpster is on the street? And let’s not forget its summer: Whatever goes into that dumpster is going to be baking in the summer sun. Not a pretty picture.
A better alternative is to hire a professional team of junk haulers like Junk King Capital District to do a single pick-up of all your clutter. This is not something the neighbors can muscle in on! With these junk hauling crews, you’ll be able to schedule an appointment that works on your schedule for the pickup. As an added bonus, the crew will do all the heavy lifting! You can’t beat that!
