If you are moving to a new home and you have a lot of stuff it is a good idea to clean everything out that you do not use before you move into your new home. This will save you a lot of space and you will not have as much to pack and unpack. If you have many things, this can be a big undertaking, however. To help you get started, below are two tips to get the stuff out of your home.

Rent a Dumpster

Before you do anything rent a dumpster. As you go through your things you will likely find things you want to throw away. This is especially true if these are items that have been accumulating for years. You may also have many things you want to donate or that can be recycled. Because of this find dumpster rental companies that will donate or recycle items for you. If you choose a company that does this rent three dumpsters. One for trash, one for donations, and one for recycling.

A roll off dumpster would work best for situations like this. This type of dumpster is placed onto a truck to deliver to your home. When the company arrives, the dumpster rolls off the truck into the area where you want it. When the dumpsters are full, the truck returns and picks them up for you. They can then replace these with empty dumpsters if needed.

These dumpsters come in a variety of sizes and are generally rectangular shaped.

Sell Your Things

You can also make money with the things you have which can help with moving expenses. Once you go through everything and start separating things out in the dumpsters check each piece to see if there is anything that you can sell. Even if you have electronic items that do not work there are buyers that will likely buy these items for the parts.

There are many things that will sell well for you including, home tech, home décor, fashion, jewelry, shoes, garden accessories, and fitness equipment.

You can list the items on auction websites or you can put them in the local newspaper in your area. No matter where you list them put a good description of each item including the condition it is in, how old it is, and more. You also need a good picture of each item.

Following these two tips should help you get everything out, so you can move into your home much quicker and without as much stuff to worry about.
