People think home clearance is easy. It’s not. If you’ve decided to try DIY clearance, here are 5 tools you must use. Everything on this list is essential, so make sure you don’t cut any corners. If you want an easier alternative, skip to the bottom of this article.
Home Clearance Tool 1: Trolleys.
When it comes to big things like televisions and cupboards, you need extra help. You could use man-power, but this is risky. People hurt themselves trying to lift heavy objects.
Trolleys take care of the load for you. All you have to do is push. Good trolleys have room for more than one object so you can carry multiple boxes and bags. Professionals use trolleys to work much faster and save time.
Home Clearance Tool 2: Containers.
It’s very important that you clearly separate rubbish from recyclable goods. Black bags are an easy way to show what’s being thrown out. For everything else, boxes will do. Plastic boxes are best when you want to store things elsewhere. You won’t have to worry about damp or insects ruining your things. They also hold better in transit because they lock together.
Home Clearance Tool 3: Labels.
These are very important when clearing out your home. It’s easy to mix up your possessions because cardboard boxes and black bags all look the same. Label everything properly. This ensures you don’t accidentally throw important or recyclable things away. Use a dark marker pen to write on the boxes and sticky labels on black bags.
Home Clearance Tool 4: Tape.
Tape keeps the labels in place. It’s easy for labels to be knocked off during the move. Make sure you have several rolls of tape. You never know when you’ll need it for a loose box or bag.
Home Clearance Tool 5: Transportation.
Carrying boxes and bags on public transportation isn’t a good idea. You’ll need more reliable transport to get the job done as fast as possible. Using your own car is a better option, but not the best. Most people don’t have a car big enough to carry lots of goods at once, leading to many trips back and forth. This wastes a lot of time, not to mention expensive fuel. A van is the best option, but the bigger the van the bigger the cost. Expect a hundred pounds for a day plus fuel.
Those 5 tools are must-haves for every DIY home clearance. Make sure you have everything ready before you start. Stopping to go shopping for tools will drag out DIY clearance much longer than necessary. Want to make home clearance much easier? Contact professionals like Clearance Experts to do the job.
