Declutter in 2024 with the Aid of Our Junk Hauling Services

Have you noticed you have less and less space to entertain? Or maybe you can’t park your car in the garage. Or is your attic so stuffed with “stuff” that you’re afraid to venture up there? If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, you should know that decluttering is easier with the help of a dumpster rental and junk hauling services.

We should specify that we don’t do the junk removal for you. You, the homeowner, provide the labor, while we provide the dumpster delivery and haul away your junk.

If you’re the type to make a New Year’s Resolution, decluttering your house might be at the top of the list. But so often, we make resolutions and then fail to keep them because they require continual effort. But decluttering a garage, attic, or basement is one of those things that can be done in a long weekend, and you reap the benefits for years to come.

Keep reading for some tips on how to declutter your home and enjoy your space more in the New Year.

Tip #1: Set a Goal and a Timeline

Do you want to convert your attic into a bedroom? Maybe you want to turn your basement into a home theater. Or maybe you just want to be able to park your car in the garage. Decide what portion of your home you’re going to clear out – or go big and do more than one area.

Give yourself a timeline and a deadline. If you’ve scheduled home remodeling, you know you have to get rid of the clutter before work can start.

Tip #2: Sell, Donate, Keep, or Toss

Go through the area to be cleaned out and decide what to do with everything.

Sell. Determine what you might be able to sell and list it on Facebook Marketplace or NextDoor. If it doesn’t sell, donate it.

Donate. Donate gently used items that can still be useful to someone who doesn’t have the money to buy something new. Some charities will send a truck if you have large items.

Keep. Decide what is still in great shape and gets a lot of use. Keep those items.

Toss. Anything that is broken and has been sitting around for years should be tossed. You can also toss old magazines, stained or torn clothing, and other items no one wants or needs. When you have a lot of stuff, and a lot of big stuff, renting a dumpster and scheduling junk removal services will save you time and money.

Driving loads of junk and trash to the dump yourself can be time-consuming and use a lot of gas. By tossing everything into a dumpster that we then haul away when you’re done, you have more time to devote to getting your space exactly the way you want it.

Tip #3: Clean the Area

If you get rid of a lot of junk that’s been sitting in your garage, basement, or attic for years, chances are good that you’ve also stirred up some dust and disturbed some cobwebs. Sweep or vacuum the floors. Dust all flat surfaces. Sweep down the walls and then wipe them down. Clean the windows inside and out.

You’ll notice not only is the area decluttered, but it looks brighter. By decluttering, you just reclaimed space in your home that you can now use for something a lot more fun than storing old junk.

Read What Some of Our Customers Have to Say

I have used J R Hauling Services residentially for the last two years!!! They are great! They come when they say they will!! They are helpful and fair in their pricing! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for “debris removal”!!! –Shelley S.


JRs was super-fast getting me several dumpsters swapped out as we emptied my father’s house- we filled 3, 20-yard bins, at a very reasonable price. They even got us the last one on a Sunday morning, which I was not expecting to be able to do!
Every time I called, I got quick replies, and they navigated a tight driveway and generally close quarters expertly. Can’t recommend them highly enough- I hope I never need them for this kind of situation again, but I’d call them first, in a heartbeat! –Gary D.
