How to Get Rid of Junk Before Your Move

A lot of people think moving just involves relocating everything in your home to a new place. However, a big part of moving, and typically a benefit at that, is that you often have to get rid of some things that you don't need in the process.

Just because something is in your current home, that doesn't mean it needs to come with you to your new home. Below are a few things you should do to get rid of junk before you move.

Take Time to Actually Sort Through Things

Don't get into the habit of packing everything into a box just because it's sitting on a shelf. As you're packing up your home, take time to actually consider what you do and don't need to bring with you.

Ask Yourself Questions

If you're unsure whether you should pack, donate, or junk something, ask yourself the following questions:

  • When was the last time I used it?

  • Does it have sentimental value?

  • Is there room for it at my new home?

  • Do I even remember why you bought it?

If you're unable to produce a positive response to any of those questions, you should probably just junk that item.

Have a Garage Sale

While you're getting rid of the junk that you don't need, why not have a garage sale and try to profit from it? Give everything a reasonable price and put it on display for potential buyers. As they say, one man's trash is another man's treasure!

Hire a Junk Removal Company

If you're getting rid of large pieces of furniture, old appliances, or a lot of boxes worth of smaller items, your everyday garbage man may not take it. Hiring a junk removal company is the perfect solution to easily get rid of things you don't want and better prepare for your future move.
