Whether you own a home or rent an apartment, at some point you will need to dispose of items you no longer want. There are many options to consider – renting a dumpster, donating items, hiring a house cleanout service, or doing everything yourself. There are pros and cons to each of those options, whether it is time saving or money saving.
Regardless of the type of home lived in, we all use basically the same furniture, the same kitchen and laundry appliances, have full wardrobes of clothes, and own various electronic, utility, entertainment, storage, sentimental and décor items. So what steps and challenges might be involved when cleaning out your living space, and an apartment in particular?
Reasons for Cleaning out a House:
- Moving to a new home. You need to dispose of old furniture & possessions to make room for new items.
- You are downsizing & remodeling. When remodeling their home, many people choose that time to upgrade their furniture & appliances.
- A family member or loved one has a hoarding problem, and you are involved with helping them dispose of items that are unnecessary.
- A loved one has passed away and it is time to clear out their home to prepare for sale.
You Are Moving
When moving into a new home or apartment, many people often-times need to dispose of old items, furniture, and appliances because they will be purchasing new ones for their new home. There are many options for getting rid of old items from your home due to you moving. Renting a dumpster is the most common option, but requires space to leave a dumpster and requires the customer to do all the work. Dumpster rental costs average between $350-$800 depending on size and what it is loaded with. Another option is donating items to services such as Goodwill or The Salvation Army. Donation services are very picky in the items they accept, and are often booked out for weeks. The most popular & time saving option is hiring a junk removal service such as A+ Enterprises Junk Removal. Most people are on a short timeline when moving, and need their items removed
ASAP. A+ Enterprises Junk Removal same-day house cleanout service, and is 20% less expensive than large national franchises.
Downsizing or Remodeling

If you have an entire home to clear out, the amount of time & effort it would take a single person would be substantial. Hiring a house cleanout service will allow you to remove all the items you would like gone in less than a single day – all at a great price!
Hoarding is a condition that affects millions of people across the United States. If you have a family member or loved one that has a home or apartment full of items that were hoarded, you know how daunting of a task it is to clean out their residence.

I got a 100% accurate estimate from the owner and he dispatched a crew to clean out my house the next day (!). The guys were professional and very nice and personable, making a tough situation much easier to handle. Moreover, they worked until the job was done way over my expectations. This company has the best prices in our area and they are complete pros. I would recommend them to anyone...don't hesitate and call A+ first! They will be my first call in the future!
Requested a free estimate and they called me back in seconds! They were much more affordable than other big name companies in the area and provided service the day I requested. The movers were friendly and awesome! They moved out my awful bulky sofa with no issues! Absolutely would recommend to anyone! They are efficient and completely organized!
Kyle and Joe were wonderful! Very efficient process. I called and gave brief information to a very professional person. They came out the next day. Wiped their feet, quoted me a very fair price, and removed my furniture. I’m very pleased with their service and friendliness. I will definitely recommend them to my family and friends! Meredith R.They did such a good job yesterday that I called them back again today for more revival. They’re very fast, efficient, easy to work with and professional. Joe and Kyle came both days and we’re incredibly polite and thoughtful in what was a hard situation for me. Bravo A+ Enterprises! Repeat business speaks for itself. Meredith R.

Fast service, excellent price. Picked up on the same morning that we called.Will definately recommend and call again. Sal was very professional.Guys who showed up at our home were professional as well.We prefer to use local companies and this is one we expect to keep on our list.
These guys are awesome! They came here when promised, were really nice and friendly, and they did what they were supposed to do in a timely fashion. The price quoted was changed because I had more “stuff” to get rid of. However, they quoted the difference before getting the rest of the things out and we agreed. I will certainly call them next time. Thanks, A+!

Items removed included beds and mattresses, 3 couches, bedroom chest of drawers, old refrigerator and electric stove, computer desk, old and very heavy television, several tools plus much more.Very courteous workers and owner was great to work with. Highly recommend and you won’t be disappointed.
AMAZING!!! 30 years of junk in a HUGE truck garage. We could not have done this job without A+ Enterprises. Thanks to Sal, Joe and the entire staff. I've never met in this day and age such HARD WORKERS!!! Also extremely polite and professional. I HIGHLY recommend this company to everyone. My rating is A+++++++++++

EXTREMELY PLEASANT AND PROFESSIONAL! Gave them a call to remove some old furniture and assorted boxes of junk. They said the had a crew in my area the next morning and could be here at 9am. Arrived right at 9 on the dot and got straight to work. They battled through all my cobwebs and work quick and efficiently. No trouble or damage from moving some big items in narrow areas. The price they quoted was great value for all the work they did. I have already and will continue to HIGHLY recommend them.
Sal was great to work with. I was so stressed about a large deck in the back of my house that was collapsing. Sal came right over and gave me a very fair price and two days later the job was done. And a really good job. He even hauled away a piece of junk for me at the last minute. I highly recommend this company and plan to use them again as the need arises
