Moving in Grand Rapids?   With all the good things happening in G.R. we help a lot of folks that are coming and going.  Whether you are moving in from out of state, moving just a town over, or maybe downsizing, we are here to help you. 

We often deliver dumpsters where there is a moving truck on one side of the driveway and a dumpster on the other.  Why take items you don’t want, moving is a perfect time to get rid of junk and old items you haven’t used in years. A perfect time to declutter your life. 

While packing items up for the move decide if you will need them in the new house?  Ask yourself the question, have I used this particular item lately?  Does the item still work?  Where will we place the item in the new house?

Perhaps your downsizing and don’t have room in the new house?  Renting a dumpster while moving in this scenario makes perfect sense!  Take the items you need and will use and utilize the dumpster to get rid of the rest.

We receive several calls each week from people who are moving and need help.  We have a variety of dumpster sizes to assist them:

10 yard dumpster: 
Perfect for getting rid of a lot of stuff from the house when you don’t have any big things.
When you have lived in the house just 1-5 years.

14 yard dumpster:
You have a lot of things to get rid of, and a few big pieces. Maybe 2 mattresses and a couch, for example.
When you have lived in the house for 5-10 years.

20 yard dumpster:
When cleaning out the whole house, along with several large items like a couple mattresses, 2 couches, and an appliance.
When you have lived in the house for more than 10 years.
Mom and dad are moving out and downsizing after 20+ years. 

Often times they don’t realize how much junk they have accumulated in their house over the years and only have so much room in their moving truck.  A dumpster rental could ease your burden and decision making, allowing you to take the items you need and not the junk you don’t.

So if a move is in your future compose a pre move checklist, decide what you will take, what you can donate to friends and family, and what items are junk to be disposed of! Pick the size of dumpster depending on the amount and size of items you’re disposing of.  In the end you will be much happier when moving into your new home.
