Junk Removal

The Complete Starter Guide

What Is Junk Removal?

Professional junk removal or junk hauling refers to a waste container rental service. Here’s how it works: a BrightHouse professional delivers the container to your desired drop-off location, leaves it there for you to fill it up with your unwanted items on your own time, and retrieves the waste container for disposal.

Whether you are moving out, moving in, or cleaning up your home or office, there can be a lot of trash that goes along with it. Many times that amount of trash you create, or the sheer size of the items, can’t be managed by your typical curbside trash pickup. When you’re cleaning out enough debris that you will be overflowing trash bins, it’s a good idea to reach out to BrightHouse.

In addition to providing a waste container for you to dispose of your junk with, we also offer loading services. When you opt for loading services in addition to your waste container rental, trained professionals will help you with the heavy lifting, transferring your waste to the bin under your direction.

Why Should You Call BrightHouse For Junk Removal Services?

Decluttering an area of your home or office can do wonders for your quality of life, and BrightHouse exists to make that reality more easily attainable.

When it comes to junk or trash removal, a great time to contact a hauling company is during seasonal cleanouts, when you have more waste than you can handle.

In addition to those specific circumstances, there are some other times when garbage removal comes in handy. For instance, if you are removing the old furniture in your home and need to get rid of a lot of bulky items, these hauling services work great for furniture removal.

Waste container rental is also helpful for appliance removal. A large appliance that has worn out its welcome at your home, such as a refrigerator, would be a great thing to get rid of through BrightHouse.

For business owners working in an office, contracting a junk removal company can save time and energy at the office. Rather than backing up the communal waste bins that are already overflowing, you can instead have a waste container delivered right to your door to carry all your cluttered junk away.

Finally, if you’re making significant changes to your yard or landscape, working with BrightHouse is the way to go. The waste container they provide will give you an outlet for all the yard waste you create while fixing up your property.
