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.

Three men came and took everything I wanted to get rid of. They were professional and very nice. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you. I'll be calling again.
Incredibly professional and responsive to all of my questions. Each time I called I spoke directly with sal. No need to leave a voicemail and wait for a call back. Sal, Shawn and Mackenzie have been amazing to work with. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for dumpster rentals.
One of the best companies I have ever dealt with. Professional, courteous, reasonable and efficient. Highly recommend.

Hard working guys got the job done in one day. I recently bought a foreclose property and have A+ Enterprises help do the clean up. Its a 3 bedroom house full of junk, and everything was gone at the end of the day. Image a house hoarders live in, 3 bedrooms, each with bed, dressers, night stand, TV and many other trash, you do not want to be in the room more than 1 minute. Kitchen full of dirty dishes, appliances and dining table with chairs. At the end of the day, whatever not bolted down was gone, including most of the nasty carpet. I will definitely use their service again. Great service and the hard working people.
Fantastic customer service. Sal was on time, very responsive to messages and professional. The price for the dumpster was very reasonable also. I have had issues with other junk removal companies in the past and wish I had found them sooner. I will definitely use them again in the future.
Would definitely recommend this company for anyone needing junk removal! Super nice owner. He and another young man came to my home and were very efficient getting rid of our junk in about 90 minutes. If you’re looking for a junk removal service, definitely check out this company. Thanks, Sal!

Contacted Sal to have some old boxes removed, called me the next day to set up a time to estimate the work. Came first thing the next morning and gave me a great quote. We agreed on a wonderful price and literally 15 minutes later he was here with his truck cleaning out our boxes. He was done quickly and efficiently! Very nice man, We will be contacting him again in the near future! My family and I highly recommend!
I never leave reviews but Sal (I think his name is) was great. Both times we used them they showed up the next day on time and did a fast and efficient job. Personable and reliable. Highly recommend.
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.

The price was amazing and the workers were professional. They completed the job within a short period of time and I’m having them come back for more work. Thanks A plus
Sal and his team were fantastic to work with. They were professional and arrived on time. Our scope of work was larger than originally estimated and they immediately dispatched an extra truck to finish up our job in record time. I would highly recommend them for all your removal needs.
