Anyone who has ever moved houses can tell you just how much you accumulate throughout the years. From knick-knacks to old clothing, these belongings take up so much of our space, and we don’t even realize it. But, as you prepare to move, you have to consider whether these are items you want to take with you.
If you are preparing to move house, you may want to consider renting a dumpster to begin clearing out old, broken, or unused items to make room for a fresh start in your new space. The benefits of renting a dumpster before your move don’t end there. Our team at Canyon View Dumpsters & Toilets has created a list of reasons we recommend renting a dumpster when preparing for a move.
1. It Helps You Declutter
As we’ve mentioned, when you live in a home for years, you can accumulate more belongings than you ever realized. It isn’t until you have to pack these belongings into boxes that you may learn how much you have. Whether these items have gone unused or you don’t have room for them in your new home, renting a dumpster is a great way to declutter your space and prepare for a move.
Having a large dumpster ready to dispose of your old belongings allows you to let go of more than you might with your home’s standard dumpster. If you have an especially hard time letting go, a large rented dumpster may be enough to motivate you to let go of the things that you are no longer using.
2. Prepare For Selling
If you are preparing to move, you may also find yourself showing your current home to prospective buyers. Many real estate professionals recommend showing your home when it is clean and empty of too many personal belongings, as this helps prospective buyers imagine themselves in your home.
By renting a dumpster, you can quickly remove items from your home that you don’t plan to bring with you and clean your space for showings. This fresh slate is appealing to homebuyers and allows them to visualize themselves and their family in the space fully. If you are preparing to move and want to show your home as soon as possible, renting a dumpster is a great way to prepare for that.
3. Have A Chance Clear Your Yard
You might not even think about your yard when preparing to move. But, if you have children or pets, you know just how much you keep in your yard. Sometimes children grow out of old backyard toys, and they remain in place for several years; Sometimes, you decide before a move that these items shouldn’t follow you to your new home.
In addition to toys in your yard, debris blown in from storms can clutter the space. If you are preparing to move, you may want to clean up the debris before new tenants move into your old home. Renting a dumpster allows you the opportunity to clear your yard of any of these old toys, broken furniture, or storm debris.
4. Makes Room For Renovations
When preparing to move, you may begin renovating your current space to increase its appeal to buyers. But renovations can quickly overwhelm and dirty a space. Some projects create way more debris than you may realize. When adding in the chaos of packing your belongings, your space can quickly become too messy for you to comfortably handle.
By renting a dumpster, you have somewhere to throw away any construction debris, keeping your space clean while you navigate the renovation process. Having a large dumpster available means the mess from your renovation, including hazardous construction waste, won’t pile up until it can be adequately removed from your space. You can focus your time and energy on packing your things and preparing to move, and alleviate any additional stress the renovation is creating.
