No one has to tell you how hard moving is. If you have to relocate, let’s both hope this will be the last time for years. Now, it’s time to prioritize to make the transportation of all your belongings as easy as possible and to safely remove all renovation scrap, household litter and lawn debris.
When to Start
Ideally, you’ll have started planning for item removal even before you have sold your place if you own it. This includes acquiring all the necessary bins for use in dividing what you want to keep, donate or trash.
Types of Debris Boxes Needed
You will need separate bags or boxes for your lawn clippings, tree leaves and trimmed branches, especially if your home departure time does not coordinate with municipal pickup times. In addition, you might need debris boxes for materials ripped from your home as you make the necessary repairs required before you move.
You also will need to obtain separate containers for all categories of belongings after you have finished decluttering. Don’t forget to have extra totes for the items you want to donate.
Examples of debris cleanup boxes you might use include these:
- Lowboy — They typically come in these dimensions: 16 feet long, 8 feet wide and 2 feet high. Use them when you have long pieces that might not weigh much and don’t cover much height but would not fit in traditional contractor trash bags.
- Midsize — This works for times when you want to gut out kitchen cabinets or remove large quantities of items from a basement or garage that no longer serve a useful purpose. These usually measure about 16 feet long, 8 feet wide and 6 feet high. You can store heavier and taller items in it. What’s more, you can throw items of all different sizes and shapes into it without fear of it falling out while traveling down the road to a recycling center, thrift store or salvage yard.
- Standard — It’s the longest debris box you can rent from Debris Boxes Online, and it measures at 22 feet long by 8 feet wide and 6 feet high. Use it when you want to transport all items in it to the same place. It fits most types of furniture, miscellaneous fixtures and other disposable or recyclable materials you want to add into it.
