Removing all of the loose ends, flotsam and jetsam, and leftover family heirlooms that crowd the majority of Canadian homes is not a job for the faint of heart, and you never know what kind of snags, issues, or strange items you might come across once you start breaking a sweat, but there are a few things you can do in advance to make the process smoother.

 

If you’re looking to downsize, clear space, or just make room for more stuff you’ve been itching to buy, then getting a dumpster to remove the junk from your home is a great idea. But how do you plan? Where do you start? Read on to find out.

 

Step 1) Decide which size you bin you need

 

The size bin you need should be the first thing out of the way. Determining which size you need isn’t an exact science, but it should be easy to do with the eye test.

 

  • Do you have a large mansion, small house, or just a garage you want to empty?
  • Do you have big furniture or just odds and ends?
  • Do you have construction materials from a big renovation project?

 

These are just some of the questions that you need to ask yourself before renting a bin. Contact us for more information about sizes and pricing.

 

Step 2) Rally the troops

 

Chances are you can’t remove it all on your own, so you are going to need some help. Get your friends, family, and anyone else you can to give you a hand. Once you guys get going it can actually be a lot of fun. Making sure your help is set will make the situation less stressful.

 

Step 3) Try to define a space

 

Defining a space within your home where you will remove the junk from is a great way to make the process easier. Try to organize most of the big stuff into one area like a garage or basement. This way you know exactly what you are dealing with.

 

Step 4) Set the date

 

Most of our clients love the weekends, but you can do yours whenever you want. Just as long as you have a time set. Get some snacks, tell your help to come over and get ready.

 

Step 5) Get your bin!

 

Insta-Bins will drop your bin right off wherever you want it, and come back to get it once you’re done. No hassle to you at all. It’s best to know where your bin is going beforehand, though. Driveways, backyards, or even the curb are acceptable locations.

 

Removing junk from your home isn’t a life-defining event, but it certainly requires a little planning here and there. Knowing how to plan for your junk removal will help make the process run more smoothly. Contact Insta-Bins today for more information!
