Why its important to use a reputable company to clear your rubbish

The figures released yesterday stating that we avoided the dreaded ‘triple dip’ recession will, with any luck see property sales, lettings and renovations likely to start rising again over the next few months and years. With this in mind, many people are going to want to get rid of unwanted household items, remove rubbish from their properties and have general clear outs from the homes they are wanting to sell or rent out. The best way of doing this is by hiring a reputable company and we will highlight the main reasons for this below.

If the process is not carried out correctly then you may find that removing your unwanted items or clearing rubbish can turn out to be a nerve wracking experience. A lot of cases are going to involve moving large, awkward items such as old couches or beds. You have to think of the safety element involved in moving these.

Why risk injuring yourself or damaging other items by trying to do it yourself when you could get a professional clearance company like Junk-It to do the job for you? As long as you select a well established and efficient company you are safe in the knowledge that the people doing the job are experienced and fully trained to deal with all your needs.

You also need to consider things from an insurance perspective.

If you choose to do the job yourself or decide to bring in an unlicensed firm then you are paving the way for potential disaster in the event of an accident. Any worthwhile company will be fully insured and licence to remove and deal with your waste. This means that any damage that is accidentally done will be covered and you will not be left to foot the bill.

Another reason to bring in the professionals is in regards to what is done with your waste and unwanted items once it is removed. When carrying out the work yourself your main thoughts will be to simply get the job done. This will likely mean a trip to the local tip to dump your rubbish. The problem with this is that the majority of stuff taken to the tip will not be recycled or salvaged. It is instead taken to landfill sites and buried, out of sight out of mind comes into thought. If you choose to hire a professional company, any decent firm will be looking to recycle as much as they possibly can. Whether they do this themselves by re-using items and dismantling them or by making sure items are taken to the correct recycling sites, bringing in a respected company means that you are helping the environment by maximising your recycled waste.

To summarise, why its important to use a reputable company to remove your rubbish is simply the wide range of benefits they bring. Sure it may cost more than doing it yourself but it will be money well spent due to the fact that you will know that the job will be carried out quickly, efficiently and effectively by an insured team. You will also find that most companies will make sure they clear up everything once the job is done to leave the place looking its best and will provide you with no obligation quotes before carrying out any work.

As a repeat customer I am delighted to report that Junk It maintains it high standards. The administration side is prompt and efficient. Jordan and Tony were cheerful, on time, and did the job with care (did not bump or scrape walls or the lift) and they were very personable ambassadors for the company. Thanks!
