If you have an old couch that you need to get rid of, you have few options that you can choose from. This page will provide you with the most important information on some of those options, and at the same time, give you a better idea of the overall junk removal services in Arbutus Ridge.
Hiring junk removal company to dispose of your old sofa
This option is the easiest, but most people are hesitant when it comes to hiring hauling companies in Vancouver, because the latter are known for their bad reputation. However, one should try not to paint all disposal companies with the same brush, and in this article I will teach you how to hire a good company, and avoid the unprofessional services this industry is so well known for.
How to hire a good junk disposal company in Vancouver?
Nowadays, it is easy to get a flashy website and put some low rates on it, in order to lure unsuspecting customers. The point is that, you should not be paying attention to a good looking site, as the only prerequisite for finding a good hauling service.
You should be focusing more on the gut feeling you get while you are talking to a given waste management company. This is not to suggest that those who provide bad services, are not smart enough to hire a sweet talker to answer their calls, but for some reason, I have noticed that few of them actually do that. Their are so busy taking advantage of customers, that they seem to neglect that element.
Low rates almost always lead to unprofessional couch removal services. There are few exceptions, but as the name suggests, they are an exception to the rule. As a matter of a fact, the low rates usually double or even triple, after the sofa is loaded on a truck.
What is the cost of couch removal in Arbutus Ridge?
Cost sofa disposal can range anywhere from $80 and as high as $120, depending on where on your property the furniture is.
How to save on junk removal fees?
Getting your furniture on the curb, garage, driveway, or anywhere outside your house – that is easy to access – is the best way to get the lowest rate possible. Also keeping your sofa dry will remove the possibility of you being charged extra fees for the added weight. Simply cover the furniture with a tarp or keep it away from the rain.
Donating your old couch
This is an option that some people can take. Just be aware that not all charities will be able to take it, and nowadays, most will refuse it if it looks too old, or has any signs of bedbugs. Make sure you are ready to do some driving around, since most facilities tend to be full. This will be one of your cheapest option in money terms, but in time will consume the most of your day.
Selling your couch also is a good option. Allow enough time for the sale to actualize itself. If you need to get rid of it in the next few days, you may want to advertise it a week beforehand.
Giving it away free online, is also an attractive option, but this one takes the longest. I have noticed that when things are free, people who are interested in getting it, are a bit hard to get them to commit.
Hope this page has given you some idea of how you would like to proceed in getting rid of your old sofa. Good luck.
