Chances are, you’ll come across things that are better off in the dumpster than your suitcase when you’re packing for a move. That’s why it’s important to know your options when it comes to removing junk before your next move. 

Rent a Dumpster

Sometimes a little brute force is all you need to solve your problems. If you can’t keep everything, then throw everything away! Renting a dumpster is an effective way to get rid of everything in one fell swoop. Your service provider will drop off a dumpster at your doorstep and pick it up when you’re done with it.

Hold an Estate Sale

If you have items that are a little too big, like furniture and electronics, an estate sale should get rid of most of it, while raking in some cash for you on the side. Advertise the event online, put a sign up, and people will flock in for whatever you need gone.

Sell on Local Online Marketplaces

If you have the time and effort, selling items online can net you the most profit. Listing them on community forums like Facebook groups, Facebook Marketplace, and other online market tools can net you the most profits. The only downside is the time consuming nature of selling things online. 

Donate Items

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Your 10 year old TV may be unusable to you, but there’s someone out there that can probably use it. Donation centers like Goodwill, the Salvation Army, and Savers are a great place to donate your belongings.

If you anticipate there to be lots of junk during your next move, remember to rent a dumpster or get rid of as much of it as possible before your movers arrive.
