5 Tips for Junk Removal Efficiency

When it comes to junk removal efficiency, most people think of the process as a slow and daunting task. And while junk removal can be a bit of a challenge, it can be done quite efficiently if you follow some easy guidelines. In fact, with the right tips and tricks, you can make junk removal quick and easy. Here are our top tips for making junk removal as efficient as possible: 

1.    Find Out How Much Junk You Have 

You know you have junk you need to get rid of, but you may not always know how much. Once you start going through your things, you may find even more junk than you initially thought. This is especially true if you have a lot of storage space that you haven’t gone through in a while. Before you start to think about scheduling a junk removal appointment (which of course is what we do – very well and very efficiently), it’s important to have a promising idea of how much stuff you need to get rid of. This will help ensure that you don’t overbook the service or underestimate the amount of junk you have. 

Garages are a place where you may have a considerable amount of junk and worth having a closer look at. A recent organizer study shows 20% of people with a 2-car garage don’t park in them at all and 33% can only park one park due to clutter. 

2.    Decide What to Keep and What to Let Go 

One of the hardest parts of junk removal is deciding what to keep and let go of. You know best what trash is to you and what is treasure. It’s important to know that letting things go will likely have a positive impact. A ‘lost and found’ survey shows that the average person spends 2.5 days a year looking for lost stuff. Decluttering will help you avoid this. Letting things go can be tricky, especially if some are sentimental. However, it’s important to be realistic about what items you use, and which ones are collecting dust. 

At Calgary Junk Removal, we take pride in organizing junk efficiently so that it can be donated or repurposed. You don’t have to worry about throwing out items that still have some value for someone else. Decide for yourself what is worth keeping and what isn’t. And let it go. 

3.    Take Pictures of Potential re-Sellable Items 

If you’re on the fence about whether you want to get rid of something, take a picture of it. This way, you can always refer to the photo if you need to and decide later. Doing this is also suitable for items you think may have some value, but you’re not entirely sure. By taking pictures, you can do research at your own pace and make an informed decision about what can be taken by a junk removal company and what you can sell. 

4.    Hire an Efficient Junk Removal Company 

Once you’ve gone through your things and decided what to keep and toss, it’s time to find a professional junk removal company. If you want the process to be as efficient as possible, hire a company that offers services that fit your needs. You may also want to consider scheduling a junk removal during a time when you know you’ll have some free time. This way, you can be available to answer any questions the junk removal crew may have. However, at Calgary Junk Removal, your presence is not needed if you provide our crew with clear instructions. 

5.    Stay Safe and Organized 

The most important thing to remember during the junk removal process is to stay safe. This means keeping an eye on the crew and ensuring they dispose of items to your satisfaction. If you have any questions or concerns, voice them, especially when finding hazardous materials.  

You should also keep your home organized during the junk removal process. Doing so will help you and the crew find and remove items to make it easier for you to find things later.  


By following these simple tips, you can make junk removal efficiency a priority. Being prepared and knowing what you want to eliminate can make the process run smoothly and quickly – leaving you with less junk and more space. Your local Calgary Junk Removal movers and removal specialists are just one call away to ensure an efficient junk removal process.
