Estate Cleanout in 3 Easy Steps

Estate Cleanout in 3 Easy Steps

by | Dec 21, 2015 | Blog, Junk Removal

After the passing of someone close, the last thing that you ever want to have to deal with is cleaning out their estate and making sure that the right things get to the right people and that the rest is disposed of as appropriate.

People live incredibly complex lives, and along the way they accumulate all kinds of stuff. Some of it is going to be incredibly valuable, some stuff will only be valuable to those that were close to the deceased, and some of it still is going to be pretty much disposable. Trying to root through an entire estate worth of possessions alone is a tall task for anyone, let alone someone so close to the situation.

That’s why you’re going to want to work with the right estate cleanout professionals like Junk Ninja to help you better resolve this situation just as quickly and as expeditiously as possible. Estate cleaning doesn’t have to be a nightmare any longer, especially if you choose to work with the right removal service.

Here are the three easy steps that dramatically simplify the entire process.

Determine EXACTLY what is what

The very first thing that you’re going to want to do during the estate cleanout process is to go through all of the different possessions and identify as much of it as humanly possible.

Most families choose to go through this process together, labeling different things as they go along so that the next step is a lot easier. This process can take a considerable amount of time, and is probably best addressed when you have at least a couple of different days to go through the entirety of the estate. Trying to get it all done in one day can be exhausting.

Separate the valuables & disposables

Once everything has been labeled appropriately, it’s now time to separate the “valuable” from the “disposable”, so that it is effortless for your estate cleanout service to come in and take things off of your hands.

This process is usually as simple and as straightforward as designating two different spaces. Keep all of the disposable things together in one corner. This guarantees that there are no miscommunications between you and your estate cleanout service.

Haul everything away

The last piece of the puzzle is simply to contact Junk Ninja. You can choose to rent a bin, or hire our estate cleanout pros to take care of everything. We’ll find a time that fits your schedule and take care of everything quickly, and then clean up before we go.
