How to Declutter Before Moving

Feb 2, 2015 | Blog, Tips and How Tos

At Fire Dawgs, we love all things house and home. Seriously, just check out our Pinterest Page. So, we were reading this article on ways to raise the value of your home’s listing. One of the tips was to Declutter. Of course! Many of our customers call Fire Dawgs Junk Removal because they need their homes cleaned out before listing their homes or before moving into a new home. A clean and organized house will always sell quicker and hopefully for a higher price. Now, without further ado, here is how to declutter before moving.

How to Declutter Before Moving

Sort Your Clutter

Start by starting through the items you don’t think you need anymore. Make piles. We suggest you make piles for the following: things to donate, things to give to friends and family, yard sale, and throw away. Many professional organizers and self-proclaimed “clean freaks” suggest parting with all things that you don’t need or you don’t absolutely love. Ask yourself: Do I absolutely love this? Does it spark joy? Is it necessary? If you answer “no” to these questions, get rid of it! Of course you can always call the professionals at Fire Dawgs if you need help removing your cluttering and donating your unwanted items.

Have a Yard Sale

Moving is expensive. After all the fees, renovations, and moving costs- the old bank account might feel (or just downright be) a little depleted. Having a yard sale before you move might help ease your moving expenses and help you declutter at the same time. Look for more information about how to have a yard sale before moving.

Call A Junk Removal Company

Calling a junk removal company to help you declutter before moving or listing your home will ensure that the job is done quickly. If you go with the professionals at Fire Dawgs Junk Removal, we will donate items on your behalf and send you a tax deductible receipt. You can feel good about parting with unwanted items when you know that we will recycle and donate as much as we can on your behalf! But how exactly can Fire Dawgs help you?
