In this short blog I’m going to give you tips on how to declutter effectively before moving to a new house.
My name’s Tom Pickering and I run Clearance and Cleanup. We’re one of Yorkshire’s largest ‘man and van’rubbish removal company.
Moving to a new house is a huge job and, if you’ve done it before you’ll know, it can be stressful. The last thing you want is to be taking items to your new property that you neither want or need. However, the good news is, that with a little planning, you can take away some of that stress by getting rid of the items you don’t want to take with you.
I would recommend going through the property and making a list. If there are items you haven’t used for a long time; items that are broken; or items that you’ve had in storage; decide whether you are going to use them in any way, shape, or form in the future.
If you’re not going to, then think a little more about each item. Is it something that would be useful to friends or family? Could it be donated to a local charity? Is it something that you can to take to the Council tip yourself? If you can’t get to the tip, or its too large for you to take yourself, then you need a company like ourselves to assist with it.
Making these decisions early will ensure you will be more organised A clear, concise list ensures you know:
Often the items which people want to dispose before a move are furniture, kids’ toys, general bric-a-brac, and things you’ve been storing in your garage or attic for a long time. If you do decide to use a rubbish clearance company the easier you can make it, by bagging items up and putting them together in an accessible place, the cheaper it will be.
And by reducing the number of items you’re transporting to your new property; the removal company will get the job completed more quickly, again saving you money.
It’s a WIN WIN situation.
