But making this decision can be difficult, especially if you don’t know how to go about it. Here are a few tips on how to get rid of your unwanted items before or after a move.
At Triple-A Removals, we know how annoying unwanted items can be when you are moving out. Whether it be furniture or just old junk like paperwork or toys, finding a way to get rid of it can be hard work.
What if you’re moving to a smaller property
If you’re moving to a smaller property, chances are that you have a lot of things you may want to get rid of. But getting rid of them can be difficult, especially if you don’t have a lot of time. Moving to a smaller property is quite a challenge and below we have listed some ways in which you can get rid of your old, unwanted items.
Host a garage sale
The first way you can begin getting rid of your old items is to host a garage sale or a car boot sale. This is a great way to get a little bit of extra cash which could go towards your removal job. Plus, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that your unwanted items are going to a new home.
Donate to charity
If you don’t want to make any money from your old items and just want them gone, then another option is to donate them to charity. This is a great way to clear out your house quickly and you will also be helping a good cause.
If you don’t want to donate your old items to charity, or if there are no charities in your area that would be interested in them, then you could always recycle them. Recycling is a great way to help the environment and it also means that you won’t have to worry about where to put your old items.
Sell Your Items
Another way in which you can get rid of your items is to sell them online. Places like the Facebook marketplace, Gumtree and eBay are fantastic ways to advertise your old furniture and belongings. Getting rid of your items this way does not require much work and you can make some profit when selling them.
Give Furniture to Friends/Family,
One of the easiest ways to get rid of your furniture before or after a move is to give it to your friends or family. This is a great way to avoid having to sell it or recycle it and you can be sure that your furniture will find a good home. Plus, you won’t have to worry about transporting it yourself.
If you’re moving to a bigger house
When moving to a bigger property, chances are you want to keep as much furniture as possible so your house doesn’t look bare. However, moving everything at once can become a challenge for yourself. That’s why we have provided some solutions below.
One of these solutions is to hire temporary storage space for your furniture. This means that you can move everything into the storage space and then gradually move it into your new house over a period of time. This is a great solution if you’re not sure where everything is going to go in your new property.
Keep Hold of them
The second option would be to just keep hold of all your furniture and move it all in one go. This would save you time and money in the long run but can be an extra hassle when it comes to moving day as more things will have to transport, this means that the move will last longer.
