Everyone knows that moving is an enormous pain and hassle, but few people realize how much smoother it could be with just one tip. Believe it or not, junk removal can make a huge difference in your next move. The key behind this tip comes from one simple reality: the less you have the easier it is to move. By getting rid of the stuff you don’t need, you’ll have less to pack in boxes, fewer boxes and items to move onto the truck, and fewer things to carry into your new home.
Junk removal is just one part of the process of reducing the number of items you have to haul to your new home. Finding out which items you’re willing to get rid of by taking an inventory and categorizing your goods will make junk removal less chaotic. By following the next few steps, you’ll be on your way to a much easier move and a more clutter-free way of life.
Take an Inventory
The first step to reducing your household items is to take an inventory of your entire home. This can seem like a very daunting task, so it’s a good idea to take small steps. For example, you could inventory one room every week starting a month or two before you move. If you’re like many people in Marin, your garage may be a huge source of belongings you haven’t looked at in years, so take some extra time to inventory storage spaces.
Categorize Your Items
Once you know exactly what items you have in your home, it’s time to divide everything into two main categories: keep and eliminate. The keep items will be everything you want to put on the moving truck and take with you to your next home. The eliminate category includes everything you want to leave behind, but among these items, you have a few choices. Some items you don’t want may be needed by friends or family while others will be worth something in a garage sale.
Sell or Give Away
After putting your items into separate categories, arrange to have your goods sold or given away. A garage sale a week or two before your move is a great way to rid yourself of a lot of unwanted belongings and earn some money. You should also consider taking some items to a local charity so that they can be put to use by a family in need. Anything that is left over after these sales and giveaways can be disposed of properly by Junk King.
