Preparing to Move

Moving is never easy. You have years of living accumulated and now you have to decide what to do with it – keep, sell, donate, store, or move – and that doesn’t include the effort to sort and pack everything you have ever owned.

At BIZ Bins, we’ve been serving Hamilton homeowners for over 30 years, so chances are you’ve seen one of our grey garbage bins in your neighbourhood before. Whether it a do-it-yourself renovation project, landscaping materials, or those years of accumulated junk that needs to be hauled away. BIZ Bins has the convenient, flexible garbage bin rentals to either recycle or remove your collected waste. We offer same day deliver, will secure a municipal permit for roadside placement, and simply give us a call to retrieve your bin when you’re done.

If it is a move you are planning, at BIZ Bins we’ve seen it all – the good, bad, and the accumulated junk that comes with living in one place for years. Junk comes in many shapes and forms. Whether you are getting rid of a few extra items, or you have a lifetime of stuff to sort through, the following tips can help you prepare for de-cluttering your home or downsize your possessions before your move.

Scaling back on your possessions can be stressful so give yourself plenty of time - you may be surprised at what you actually own. Review the floor plans in your new home before you move and only pack items that fit into the plan.

Set aside an hour each day and start small by putting possessions into three categories: keep, sell/donate, and toss. A detailed list will also help your junk removal specialist determine a more exact quote for their services when they show up on site. Take advantage of the opportunity by ridding yourself of basement buildup and attic annoyances as well.

For donation like unused clothing and household items, be nice about it and don’t give away items that don’t work or are destined for the junk pile as well. If you haven’t worn it or plugged it in for a year, odds are you won’t ever use it.

Once everything is sorted and categorized, consider a dumpster rental so you can load in your unwanted possessions at your own pace. Our BIZ Bins professionals can help you determine what items can and cannot be accept in our residential or commercial/industrial bins.

Finally, decluttering, downsizing, and moving are all stressful times for individuals and families so don’t panic – you have a plan, professionals from BIZ Bins to help you, and you’ll soon be enjoying more space, a new home, or both – so make some tea and relax.

Be it appliances, furniture or flooring, BIZ Bins are perfect for jobs of all sizes. With our easy-to-load and driveway friendly garbage bin rentals, you’ll save time and money hauling unwanted junk and debris to the dump.

If you have questions about bin rental or what can and cannot be dumped, we’re more than happy to help. Call BIZ Bins at 905-574-4700 today for same-day service and our low-price guarantee.
