Using a dumpster before a move makes sense in a whole lot of ways. Here are some of them.

Save money

How much stuff you’ll be moving plays a huge role in how much your move will cost.

For a local move, the majority of movers will bill an hourly rate depending on how many laborers and trucks are required for how long. Movers usually provide different costs per hour for two, three, or four employees needed and so forth. The cost-per-hour may also rise if extra vehicles must be used.
When doing a long-distance move, you’ll be charged based on the amount of your belongings’ weight and distance traveled, along with other potential additional charges.

The more stuff you have, the more your move will cost. By using a dumpster to do a purge ahead of the move, you could dramatically lower your moving bills.

Make moving easier

The days ahead of a move are a blur of boxes and bubble wrap. If you simply just put everything in your home into boxes, packing takes longer. And so does unpacking. The days after you move will be filled with stress and hassle as you and your family struggle to find things as you unpack.

Moving is an optimal time to do a purge by using a dumpster from PRO Hauling. Here are some examples of why.

Downsizing – If you are moving from a big family home into a condo or smaller empty-nest home, there will not be enough room in your new home for everything you have. A dumpster helps you get rid of what you no longer need or want.

A smoother move – Not only does renting a dumpster give you the chance to get rid of things that no longer, as Maria Kondo says, “spark joy,” you also can better organize what you are keeping so packing and unpacking go more smoothly.

Efficiency – Having a dumpster on-site means you don’t have to stop purging to bag stuff up and take it to the dump. Purging is faster so you have more time, energy, and attention to focus on packing.

A fresh start -You have a lot to think about when it comes to your new home. There’s the fun stuff, like paint colors. However, trying to figure out where all your stuff should go is not as fun. Renting a dumpster ahead of time gives you the chance to have only what you want in your new home. You won’t be bringing old clutter with you.

Move into this new chapter with less stress. Rent a dumpster from PRO Hauling before you move!
