Waste collection is the final step in most home renovations. When planning a renovation, many people will overlook this step. However, planning the proper waste removal methods for your renovation is crucial and can have a significant impact on the budget and overall completion of your project. Unnecessary clutter at the end of your project will only serve to detract from all the work you’ve done throughout the renovation. Deciding the right waste removal methods for your renovation will often boil down to two main options: junk removal and dumpster rental. This guide explores the main differences between junk removal and dumpster rental to help ease the decision-making process for your next renovation.
Junk removal services
Individuals looking to remove a small quantity of clutter from their homes are most likely to use junk removal services. This type of waste removal service generally involves employees of the service entering your home to remove unwanted waste items. Removal of large furniture and construction debris is the most common use for this type of waste removal service. Though junk removal service may seem much simpler, as it places the removal of waste solely in the care of the hired service, it can also be a bit more expensive and stressful. Junk removal services generally require you to schedule two dates for the removal of your waste. The first is to ascertain the scope of waste you will have removed, the second to actually remove the waste from your home. In the initial meeting, an employee of the company will generally assess the amount of waste and provide you with an estimated cost for removing the items. As the cost greatly depends on the quantity and type of items that will be removed, the cost can start to add up quite quickly.
Dumpster rental services
The main difference between junk removal and dumpster rental is the time period in which the waste removal takes place. Dumpster rental allows you to keep a dumpster on your property for up to 10 days, allowing you enough time to sort through your clutter at your leisure. You can extend this time frame for particularly lengthy renovation projects. The flexibility offered through dumpster rental, not only through the rental time frame but also in the size and weight of your dumpster, is far preferable to the rigid requirements of many junk removal services. Additionally, though the responsibility of removing and placing waste in the dumpster is squarely on the renter, the heavy lifting is left entirely to the dumpster rental company. The dumpster rental company will deliver and remove the dumpster from your property quickly and efficiently, allowing you to truly relax at the conclusion of your renovation. Dumpster rental is also far preferable in terms of cost. Homeowners need only worry about the fixed rate for renting a dumpster and do not need to concern themselves with additional fees for the disposal of special items. This fixed rate helps homeowners maintain a budget when working on a renovation project. For affordable rental dumpsters in Atlanta and the surrounding areas, contact our team at Vine Disposal today.
