Clearing the Clutter Before A Move

The new year is around, which means you probably plan to move. Regardless of where you are moving to, it is crucial to know that every item you plan to move will cost you somehow. Clearing the junk before a move is the most effective way to reduce the load and move the necessary stuff only. It is also the perfect time to remove those things you need to dispose of to create more room. This article is a complete guide on clearing the clutter before a move.

What is the fastest way to clearing the clutter before a move?

We understand; clutter is a pain in the neck, and you need them out instantly. 

To discard clutter first, you need to;

  • Discard the obvious garbage

Look around the house and pick up the apparent junk. You can start with storage areas, garage and basement because these spots are culprits for trash.

Discard obsolete items like furniture, tools, kitchenware, expired food and drugs, packaging material, expired bathroom products, etc.

Eliminating visible junk will help clear room for you to do deep cleaning and ultimately make it easy to eliminate clutter.

Also, starting small can be the motivation you need to clear the clutter before a move.

  • Purge room-by-room

Once you remove the obvious clutter, you can create a room-by-room checklist to help you purge the rooms.

You can start clearing the less busy areas like the attic, basement, closets, and bedrooms.

Do a deep cleaning job and eliminate any obsolete, unwanted and items you haven’t used in ages.

  • Declutter now

If you need to remove garbage from your household, you need to take action now. Create a plan and be consistent when cleaning up. Make ruthless decluttering decisions fast, so you don’t spend much time purging.

Trust me; you don’t have items you haven’t touched or used in a year, and you need to eliminate them without second thoughts.

  • Use a dumpster

One of the fastest and effective ways to remove household junk is to use a roll-off dumpster.

A dumpster of your choice can remove all household junk in one go making it simple to dispose of vast piles of trash.

What are the expensive things to move?

It is crucial to understand that each item will cost you money, time, and space when preparing to move. And some household items can cost a pretty penny to move.

Often, large and fragile items are the most expensive items to move.

 For instance, moving a giant TV is pretty expensive. TVs are delicate and are at risk of damage if you don’t have their original packaging. You may need to spend money on packaging to secure your TVs during a move.

Moving large couches, mattresses, and home appliances like refrigerators, freezers, ovens, and washing machines are pretty expensive. These items are pretty heavy and occupy a ton of space when moving.

Other expensive things to move include mirrors, sculptures, and expensive art.

Best ways to clear the clutter before a move

  • Yard sale

The best way to clear the clutter before a move is to host a yard sale. You can sell items and save the money you get from the yard sale so you can purchase new ones in your new place.

The good thing is that you can make money by selling unwanted stuff in your house.

  • Donate

Some people will gladly take in stuff that you don’t need. Identify donation centers near you and take your items there.

  • Recycle

Sort and move recycling junk to your local recycling center. You can recycle items like textiles, electronics, furniture, and appliances.
