Professional Junk Removal vs. Dumpsters

With the new year underway, seize the moment and knock out a task that you’ve been putting off. It’s time to empty that attic, basement, or storage unit that you promised to clean months ago. However, this task presents a conundrum: what will you do with all the junk in that space? Where can it go? 

Don’t let clutter stop you. Reach out to 123JUNK for professional junk removal services! Since its inception, our company has sought to help people dispose of their unwanted goods responsibly. As a DMV business, we donate used goods to charities around the Washington, DC, region. We also recycle appropriate materials to avoid landfill waste. Whether it’s furniture, appliances, or other junk, we take away whatever you want us to. Plus, we offer professional cleanout services for any size property. 

Below, we describe the differences – and benefits – of junk removal service against traditional dumpster rentals: 

Junk Removal Opposed to Dumpster Rental

These days, junk removal and dumpster rental are the primary options for disposing of home goods. In both cases, an outside company hauls away the trash. But they differ in how they reach that end: one requires no labor on your part while the other requires a great deal of it. 

When you hire a junk removal company like 123JUNK, its crew handles the heavy lifting. They bring a truck, and the employee team removes all the items (with a few exceptions) in a given space. Benefits of professional junk removal include speed, efficiency, and peace of mind. 

Dumpster rental requires that you handle the work. After the rental company drops off their dumpster (in the street or your driveway), you must load it with your unwanted items. After a set time, the company hauls off the dumpster with the junk you’ve loaded in it. 

Drawbacks of Dumpsters

Certain situations call for dumpster rental. For instance, contractors and companies use them at worksites for disposal. They make sense in such a scenario, as construction teams need a means of clearing junk during their work. 

But if you want to declutter your home or office, renting a dumpster is a hassle. First, it requires intense labor from you. Also, if no one can help, you may not be able to move large items that must go. And the limited timeframe may not give you enough time to complete your cleanout. 

What’s more, dumpsters come with a hefty price tag. You need a city permit to keep the dumpster in the street. Plus, many rental companies set weight limits and dumping fees, so extra costs pile up. But junk removal avoids these problems, replacing them with benefits. 

Benefits of 123JUNK’s Services

Of all junk removal services, why call 123JUNK? First, as a proud DMV business, we want to do our part in the community. This goal influences all aspects of our business: our 1-2-3 disposal process, our variety of options, and our outstanding customer service. 

Also, we remove junk from residential and commercial spaces including offices, storage units, warehouses, garages, sheds, and more. Plus, our complete service comes at one flat price. Rather than charging by weight or volume, we prorate our charges based on the space your junk covers in our trucks.
