Why Does Everyone Seem To Forget This On Moving Day?!

05th Jun 2017 moving

If you’ve ever planned a big move, then you know how important (and stressful) it can be when moving day finally arrives. You frantically search the house, making sure that you haven’t forgotten any crucial possessions, boxes, or documents.

Of course, there is one critical thing that so many people completely forget until it’s too late.

We’re not talking about a valuable item, but an important task on any moving day to-do list: arranging for waste and junk removal! It might not be the most exciting part of any move, but any experienced moving services can tell you that you need a plan for waste removal.

 

What Are You Going To Do With All That Junk? All That Junk Outside the Truck?

The more college degrees you have, the more likely you are to move. About three-quarters of college graduates (77% exactly) have changed locations at least once, while only 56% of those with high school diplomas have done so. Unfortunately, even those with PhDs seem to forget about trash removal come moving day.

Many homeowners use moving day as an excuse to get rid of old possessions, junk, broken down furniture, and other random items. This junk pile can quickly add up, until your garbage cans are completely overwhelmed. Depending on where you live, local garbage collectors will ignore this extra junk, which can result in dumping fines in many places.

Many homeowners simply assume that their local movers will magically make all this waste, junk, and trash disappear. However, this type of junk removal usually costs more money, which can totally bust a moving day budget. That’s why it’s so important to plan ahead for junk and waste removal before moving day arrives.

What Kind of Junk Removal Services Are Available?

If you aren’t sure how to arrange for waste removal on moving day, it’s always a good idea to check with your local movers.
