DIY Junk Removal vs. Hiring a Company

Which Option Will Benefit You?

The day you were dreading for so long finally came. The junk that you had stashed away on your property has finally busted out of its hiding place. And now that there’s so much of it, you can’t just ignore its presence any longer. Something has to be done with it before it consumes all your space. That just leaves you with one question. Should you remove that junk on your own, or should you contact a full-service junk removal company for help? What a tricky dilemma. Maybe we can help you figure out the answer.

At Legend Junk Removal, we know just about everything there is to know about cleaning up messes in Spokane County and surrounding areas. We also understand all the work that goes into junk removal, too. Because of this, we can tell you what you can expect from the DIY process, as well as from a full-service junk removal company. That way, you can make an informed decision for yourself about which path is better!

Pros and Cons of Doing It Yourself

Are you up to a challenge? If so, DIY junk removal might be right for you. When doing it yourself, you’ll have the freedom to handle the work whenever you want, on your own schedule. So if you’ve removed unwanted items from your property for thirty minutes, and you’re already feeling a little tired, just take a break! It’s not a big deal—so long as you have the time for it. Additionally, if you’re doing all the heavy lifting on your own, you won’t have to pay anyone to do it for you. Our neighbors who are searching to save as much money as possible will certainly get that from the do-it-yourself process.

On the other hand, the freedom of doing the work however you like might actually seem like a curse. This is especially true when your schedule is plenty full already and you don’t have free time to dedicate to do-it-yourself junk removal. What’s more, some DIY jobs are harder than others. We’re sure you can remove garbage, clothes, and toys from your home by yourself. But what about bulkier items, such as furniture and appliances? You might have to track down a friend who can help you pick those up and haul them out the door.

Don’t forget that you’ll also need to figure out some sort of way to handle junk disposal. If your city’s trash collectors won’t accept your unwanted items, then it might be time to load up a vehicle and visit one of Spokane County’s disposal sites. This, of course, means paying dump fees.

Pros and Cons of Full-Service Junk Removal

Those of you out there who can’t be bothered to haul your own junk are in luck. You won’t have to thanks to full-service junk removal companies such as Legend Junk Removal. No need to figure out how to get rid of junk for yourself this way. A whole team will arrive, and you’ll just point them to your junk and let them carry it away for you. No need to do any heavy lifting, and no need to find a vehicle you can transport your old stuff to the dump with. Companies such as Legend Junk Removal have large enough trucks for just about anything you need to be removed from your property.

As you can imagine, a full-service team can get the work done much, much faster than you could on your own. However, that work isn’t free. For example, Legend Junk Removal has employees to pay, a truck to fuel, and insurance premiums to handle. As a result, we have to ask our customers for a reasonable, volume-based cost each time we take on an appointment.

Whether or not having those team members on your property is a good thing depends on the person. Most of the customers we meet are happy to have pleasant, sociable junk haulers at their service. However, not everybody is thrilled to be served by strangers. If you are shy and don’t necessarily like meeting new people, then maybe do-it-yourself junk removal would be more your style.
