It’s easy for us to accumulate large household items that we may or may not end up using. We find a deal on a refrigerator, or maybe you got a raise at work and you decide its time to treat yourself to a hot tub. Thankfully, it seems the notion that the older we get, the wiser we become, still rings true. Statistica released a study in 2018 on shopping behavior that breaks down the number of impulse purchases by age group
Eighteen to twenty-four year old adults report 49% of their purchases are consumed by impulse purchases, yet each consecutive age group decreases this percentage, with the lowest reaching 35% for sixty-five and older adults.
Whether or not that new refrigerator was an impulse buy, chances are you’ll still need your old refrigerator removed or other large items collecting dust in your garage.
Hot Tub Removal
Luxury items like hot tubs are a perfect way to unwind in your backyard. While some hike up a tall price tag, there are actually several brands and options for affordable tubs. Maintenance can be a pain, but the relaxation factor it adds after a long day might just be worth it.
While the hot tub was a breeze to order, deliver and have the company set up for you, the inevitable disposal might just have you question the purchase in the first place. Disposing of the tub yourself might seem like the cost effective alternative, yet dismantling these behemoths actually come with many risks and safety precautions.
Your hot tub consists of components like gas lines and electrical elements that pose serious injury risks if not taken a part correctly. Then, once you remove any screws/nails and cut the frame into small pieces, disposing of it all needs to be done properly which consists of sorting through the components and materials.

Garage and House Clean Outs
Do you remember the day you bought or began renting your current residence? The garage looked so spacious, cabinets were empty and you embarked on a journey to organize your belongings in the perfect way. Over time however, our lives get busy and junk tends to pile up.
Garages have the potential to be a workspace, an organized space for storage and of course, a place you actually have room to park in. Yet garages also tend to be an “overflow” storage container, meaning the new stuff we end up accumulating but do not have room for ends up there.
According to Forbes, “in 1930, the average American woman owned nine outfits. Today, that figure is 30 outfits – one for every day of the month.” Now of course it’s not just women who like to shop. For guys it might be tools, a beer sign you thought would look cool in the garage or maybe a woodworking project you purchased the materials for but do not have time to build.
Luckily, there are professional junk removal services that specialize in cleaning out these junk items from your house and garage.
