Why Rent a Dumpster in Portland for a Home or Garage Cleanout?
Updated: Jun 23, 2022
We dread sorting and purging our household belongings. We avoid it like the plague because deep down, we do not want to ask ourselves over and over, “toss or keep?” That decision-making takes an enormous emotional toll, and afterward, you still need to then dispose of the items you chose to toss! If a life event such as a move, foreclosure, downsizing, or selling a family member’s estate prompts you to clean out an entire house or garage, renting a dumpster is a simple, fast, and fun option for getting the job done. Here’s why:
Local Pick-Up Just Won’t Cut It
Some jobs are just too big to leave everything on the curb. While most cities offer junk pick-up, they typically require a phone call to schedule a time, and there’s still a lot they may not take, such as old appliances. There’s only so much curb space you can fill, especially with a full-on cleanout where you’re tossing a lot of large items, and waiting for your pick-up could take a few days. Going through the process of local pick-up multiple times is inefficient and tedious. And do you want all your clutter from the last few decades to be a weekend display for your entire neighborhood?
Time, Cost & Physical Toll
Let’s do the math. How many trips would it take to get all your junk to the dump? What would this cost you in gas and disposal fees? What type of vehicle would you be loading (note: your SUV fills up fast)? How much energy would you (and the friends helping you) expend loading the vehicle? What kind of damage might your car, and your body, incur? See where we’re going with this? The time and costs of DIY junk hauling do not offset the single price and convenience. Even multiple curbside pick-ups would take longer than you typically have to move entirely out of your house by a particular deadline.
Chucking Stuff is Fun
It sounds silly, but it’s true! You get all of the reward and satisfaction of literally throwing stuff out. You feel a physical rush, boosting endorphins and adrenaline. You feel the accomplishment. You see immediate results. These are emotional wins that turn a stressful project into a fun experience. DIY and curbside hauling deprive you of that joy. We at Spotless Dumpster Rental believe in the psychological benefits of decluttering your home, which is why we provide the services the way we do.
