3 Reasons You Need To Rent A Dumpster When Moving Out Of Your Home

Posted on: 18 July 2016

Statistics show that the average American will move about 12 times during his or her lifetime. Moving can be a hassle, especially when you have accumulated a large amount of stuff while you have been living in your current home. Making the decision to invest in renting a dumpster when you move out of your home can be beneficial.

Here are three reasons why a rented dumpster can serve as a valuable asset during your next move.

1. A dumpster can help you get organized.

Consumer-minded Americans can accumulate a large number of belongings over the course of a lifetime. If you have a lot of excess items hanging around your current home, these items could be costing you valuable time.

Studies show that the average person spends about 55 minutes each day looking for items they know they own, but simply cannot locate. By going through your belongings as you pack and keeping only the essentials (while tossing excess items in a rented dumpster), you can make it easier to keep your new home organized in the future.

2. A dumpster can free up space in your new garage.

Many American households are equipped with two-car garages, yet you often see cars parked in outside driveways rather than inside these protected garages.

For many families, the reason why cars will not fit into their garages is because the garages are being used as excess storage space. In fact, statistics show that 25% of people with a two-car garage can't fit any cars inside due to clutter, and 32% are only able to fit a single vehicle in a two-car garage.

Use a rented dumpster to toss any items you aren't using on a daily basis so that you can use your new garage for its intended purpose.

3. A dumpster can help you reduce cleaning time in the future.

Tossing out some of the items that are cluttering up your current home as you prepare to pack and move could significantly reduce the amount of time you spend cleaning your new abode.

Experts estimate that 40% of the housework in an average home could be eliminated if clutter were to be reduced. Sort through items in boxes and drawers, toss any unwanted items in your rented dumpster, and enjoy more free time when you move into your new home.

Investing money in a rented dumpster or trash container rental in which you can throw out unused items during a move can help you make your new home more organized, make room for your vehicles to park in your new garage, and eliminate a lot of excess housework in the future.
