Blue truck delivers colourful waste container

With the weather getting warmer, it’s finally time to get started on the long-overdue home projects that you couldn’t do during the winter months. Spring and summer are the ideal times to have fun, invite friends and family over, or maybe even move into a new place — but to do all that, your house needs to be free of junk. CleanPro, based out of Gloucester, is sharing some advice on how to pick a junk removal company while also keeping your property and loved ones safe.

Research What Is Removable

When you search for a local junk removal company, the very first thing to look for is fairly straightforward: are they able to actually move your items? It’s possible different companies will have guidelines regarding what items they will and will not take. Prior to starting the research process, gather together a pile and/or list of what junk you want out of your way — does it consist of old appliances? Clothes? Antiques and knick-knacks? Furniture? Chances are it’ll be a mixture of all these things. Therefore the best thing you can do is to find out if the junk removal company you’re looking at will, in fact, be willing to take your stuff. If not, you’ll be left with a huge pile just sitting there.

Read Prior Customer Reviews

So you’ve settled on a local company that you know for sure will remove your old belongings. The next step is a way to ensure you’re letting professional, top-rated people into your house: reading customer reviews. It’s important to make sure the junk removal company you choose will be respectful of you, your family and your property; staying safe is a huge priority. Reading up on what other customers have experienced — both good and bad — will help you gauge if you can trust this service and if it’s reputable. This also cuts down on any potential risk of letting new people into your home.

Look Into Consultations & Quotes

If you feel comfortable with a certain junk removal company, check to see if they offer at-home consultations (since your items are most likely in your home) and free quotes. This ensures there is clear communication about what service you’re signing up for and how much it will potentially cost. Being upfront about these things is a characteristic of transparent, trustworthy service providers. Check the company’s website to see if they encourage meeting in person to discuss the removal and if they have available information on cost — that way there are no unexpected surprises.

Make Your Decision From There

Going through this process, it’s easy to “weed out” potential companies that may not feel comfortable working with.
