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
When downsizing or remodeling, people often-times have appliances & construction debris to be disposed of. While we previously went over the pros & cons of alternative options, hiring a junk removal service can be one of the best options.
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.
To clean out a hoarders home yourself will require taking over a week off from work, renting & scheduling dumpsters, and a lot of hard work. A+ Enterprises Junk Removal specializes in hoarding cleanout services, and has completed hundreds of hoarding cleanup projects. Most hoarding cleanout projects can be completed in less than a single day.
When a loved one passes, it is a very difficult time emotionally, especially considering funerals, estate planning, etc. One of the last things the family members want to deal with is cleaning up the loved one’s home of the items & furniture they collected over the years.
When calling a house cleanout service, it is important to ensure that they have the capability of cleaning out the home quickly, safely, and efficiently.

Hired A Plus Enterprises last year to remove some old pool equipment, old yard equipment, and old furniture from my house. There timing, professionalism, and reasonable pricing was overwhelmingly amazing. Great job and look forward to hiring you again!
Professional and courteous. We have sought the services of this company twice now. Each time they were more than accommodating with very reasonable prices. A+ service.
I would highly recommend A+ Enterprises. Very professional staff. Fast response to my request for information. Sal is very friendly, answered all my questions and set a date for pick up, much faster than I had expected. Day of pick up was better than prompt. Joe called en-route to say he was a little ahead of schedule and could actually be at my house sooner. Great Job at a reasonable price. Would definitely refer family and friends. Thank your for A+ service!

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
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.
Very professional and efficient. Came on short notice. Very nice guys. Extremely good job done swiftly.

Absolutely amazing! Highly recommended! I recently moved to Pennsylvania and purchased a fixer upper in Luzern County. I had a large pile of debris from the house that I needed to get rid of. I called A+ Junk Removal and spoke with Sal. He was extremely professional and very personable. He was able to work with my schedule which was greatly appreciated. Sal also contacted me through text to remind me of my scheduled appointment. Joe and Andrew showed up on time to give me an estimate for my junk pile. They gave me a great price and got right to work. Both Joe and Andrew were very polite and extremely professional. Very friendly as well. They did an amazing job! I couldn’t have asked for a better crew to come and do this job for me. I am extremely appreciative for Sal, Joe and Andrew. I highly recommend this company and will definitely use them again on the future. Thank you so much A+ Enterprises!
I had called them to remove an old couch.. not only did the accommodate at a reasonable rate, they had it removed within hours!! Called 2-3 different places, tied prices w 2, however the customer service was phenomenal!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! Thank you so much again!!
I would rate over 5 stars if I could. A+ Enterprises is definitely A+! When we called them we were surprised to hear that they do same-day service, and they arrived quickly. The owner, Sal, is a wonderful guy who is honest and friendly. Everybody works very efficiently and is professional. Can't recommend them enough!

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+!
I would highly recommend them they did a great job and the men were very hardworking and very nice I intend to get them back for more at another time
One of the best companies I have ever dealt with. Professional, courteous, reasonable and efficient. Highly recommend.
- Daryl Williams
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!Added 3/1/2020: So 18 months later I had to clean out a 2nd floor apartment and 3rd floor attic. This attic was stuffed floor to ceiling with junk and the apartment full of furniture. Sal had a crew there within 24 hrs of my call and cleaned it out in ONE DAY! They even swept up and went through with garbage cans to completely clean the house. I value good service and A+ always delivers...I recommend them to my friends and family and have now used them 3 times. Each time the price is far less than I expected and the work is way better than I'd expect. If you have a job that you're afraid to deal with...call them!!!!! It is the best call you'll ever make! They have always come through for me. Thank you!!!!
Sal really helped us out. We needed some junk removed right away and he got there within a couple of hours, was very professional and polite and did not charge an arm and a leg. He has a customer for life in us now!
