It seems there is no end to human ingenuity and entrepreneurialism. We’re not sure who the first person was to decide to have a garage or yard sale, but we suspect it wasn’t long after that the phrase “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” came into being.
If you have the time and energy, garage and yard sales are a great way to make a little money while ridding your home of stuff you no longer want. But then again, there’s some stuff that nobody wants. Sometimes one man’s trash is actually just trash.
When it comes to clearing out your home, consumers have a couple of options: junk removal and dumpster bin rental. A Bin There Dump That dumpster bin is a great way to get rid of material you no longer want or need. But there are sometimes advantages to the junk removal route.
The biggest advantage to a junk removal service is that it is not labor intensive. Junk removal companies will visit your home, remove the items in question and be on their way.
With a dumpster rental, you and whoever else you can convince, cajole or con into helping out will be the ones doing the work (But since you’re doing the work, the cost tends to be less than the junk removal alternative.)
A dumpster is brought to your home and gently placed wherever you decide, and you’ve usually got about a week to use it for whatever your needs may be.
Because you’ll hang on to the rental dumpster bin for a couple of days, you don’t need to be on site when it is delivered. Conversely, junk removal service is an immediate activity, so someone needs to be on site at a designated time — that might mean taking a few hours or even the whole day off from work.
There’s an old Yiddish proverb: Man plans and God laughs. Our good intentions usually lie dashed in the bottom of an empty bin. When something goes wrong, you have more time to complete your project and can do so at your leisure. Junk removal services tend not to be as flexible.
With a Bin There Dump That dumpster bin, the only cost is that of the bin rental. With a junk removal company, you might pay labor charges on top of the rental fees.
With a dumpster bin, insurance coverage (general liability, workers’ compensation and auto insurance) are included. Some junk removal companies might offer insurance. You’ll need to check before you place your order.
We know that the area around a dumpster can sometimes get a little messy. Some junk removal companies offer to sweep up after they remove their container. But all Bin There Dump That franchise owners do: When our drivers come to pick up the dumpster at the end of your project, they will sweep clean the area around where the dumpster sat.
Junk removal services certainly have their place. When you’re looking for flexibility and savings, consider a dumpster bin rental.
