When you’ve finally cleaned up your garage or thrown out your old appliances, no need to go through the disposal process on your own. Hire a junk removal company to take care of it for you.

Before they haul the junk away, read these tips to help you prepare for their arrival.

1. Make a list

Junk removal companies accept a wide variety of items, but they don’t pick up certain items like batteries, tires, paint, and thermometers because of state waste disposal laws.

Here are some of the items they’ll be happy to take:

  • Computers & Notebooks
  • Printer, Scanners, & Copiers
  • Monitors & Displays
  • Refrigerators & Freezers
  • Washer / Dryers
  • Exercise Equipment
  • Metal & Glass
  • Construction Waste
  • Tires & rubber
  • General Rubbish
  • Junk
  • Yard Waste
  • Mattresses & Box Springs
  • Carpeting & Rugs
  • Pool Tables

If an item is not on the list, contact the junk removal company to find out if they can accommodate your needs.

2. Call for a quote

Once you’ve made a list of the items you want removed, call your favorite local junk removal provider to get a free estimate. They’ll send an expert to review the items and give you a simple all-in price. You can make the payment after the work has been completed.

3. Assemble the junk

Junk removal companies are ready to pick up the junk as soon as they arrive. Try to place the items in a central area to avoid confusion and make the process easier and faster.

4. Separate the junk

If some of the junk you want removed is still salvageable, separate it from the rest of the rubbish. Some junk removal companies work with local charities and donate items that are still in good condition. Sorting them beforehand will ensure they end up in the right hands.

5. Ensure access

Make sure the junk removal staff can reach the junk with ease. Clear out any furniture or obstructions that may get in the way. 

If you have pets and kids, move them to a safe area during junk removal to prevent any dangerous situations.
