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.

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.

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.
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.

I can't say enough about Sal. He was very patient, knowledgeable, and went out of his way to ensure my company was taken care of. I absolutely recommend anyone to use this company. They get in and out very quickly and offer a great price. They also stick to their word which is very rare now-a-days!

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 A+ Crew led by Joe G were very courteous and professional.I highly recommend A+ without any hesitation
The 3 man crew did a fantastic job in clearing out and disposing of several large and small items that still remained after a 2 day estate sale. 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.

I hired Sal to remove a huge pile of dirt at the property. Sal and his team came on time and finished the job beautifully. They are reliable, honest, and excellent on their workmanship. I would highly recommend to anyone. Thank you Sal. AAA+++
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!
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.

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
Sal and his team are amazing! They came and did a clean out the same day I called. They are honest, flexible, quick, and professional. They are worth every penny they charge. I wouldn't consider calling anyone else.Ryan K.

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 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
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!
