It's a job that no one really wants to do. But the reality of life and business is that things accumulate, offices are sometimes re-arranged, and entire businesses sometimes relocate. And all these events can create a junk removal problem for business owners and others.Owning a truck, or having an employee with a truck, is never a good enough reason to do your own junk removal. Unless you actually are a junk removal company, your business is not in the business of junk removal!
Junk Removal Is a Job You Shouldn't Have to Do
As a business owner or office manager, you must carefully consider every decision that involves an expenditure. And hauling unwanted junk and excess equipment or refuse will involve some expense.
But it is often far more cost-effective to outsource this job to a local professional firm like Junk King. In fact, depending on where your business is located, there may even be some city or county restrictions on just what you can or cannot haul and dispose of yourself.
Five Ways Outsourcing Junk Removal Will Benefit Your Business
You may have what seem like good reasons to haul your company’s junk yourself, or hire someone you know that has a truck. Fair enough, but the benefits and cost advantages of using a professional junk removal firm far outweigh them.
1. It's Convenient
When you stop to consider the amount of time involved in clearing out, loading, and then hauling and disposing of your junk you may be talking about number of hours, possibly days lost. The time you or your employees spend doing this kind of work is time not spent doing what you pay them for.
2. It's Safer
Depending on the quantity and nature of your waste, the simple work of moving it can be hazardous. Cuts, abrasions and back strains are very real consequences of clearing and hauling junk. In addition, you may be working with actual hazardous materials that need to be handled properly and legally. Without proper training and proper equipment, disposing of some waste can lead to complications.
3. It's Cost Effective
When you factor in not only the time and wages spent on employees (or yourself) cleaning and hauling your junk, and the opportunity cost of other that’s work not getting done, it becomes an expensive proposition. Using your own employees for junk hauling not only invites potential issues with injuries and overtime costs.
4. It's Efficient
There is more to proper junk removal than simply throwing stuff into the back of a truck. Knowing what can be disposed of legally and where constitutes a large part of what makes a professional firm the better choice. And simply taking everything to the local landfill – assuming there is one – is not always the most cost-effective means of disposal. Recycling and re-purposing many items and materials is a responsible approach for a business to take.
5. It's Better Looking
A common option for far too many businesses is to simply shuffle their excess equipment, furniture and other junk from one storage space to another. Sometimes these items end up outside their place of work, creating unsightly and potentially hazardous conditions. But the prospect of having to sort, load, haul and somehow dispose of all that stuff keeps them from doing anything about it. Yet having it removed quickly and safely by a professional hauling company will instantly improve the aesthetics, safety and appearance of a business site.
Easy and Cost-Effective Junk Removal (and Peace of Mind!)
Junk removal can be planned as a cost-effectiveness business strategy with the right approach. Part of the strategy planning involves determining the actual costs associated with clean-up, hauling and disposing of junk and office waste. Below are a few of the more apparent costs:
- Labor hours spent in clean-up and hauling
- Landfill fees and other associated costs (gas, wear on vehicles, etc.)
- Opportunity costs - loss of production by crew members cleaning, hauling, etc.
- Loss of vehicle use while hauling and dumping junk
- Any additional costs for properly disposing of hazardous wastes
Again, this is not an exhaustive list, but it does represent the typical expenditures - tangible and otherwise - that incurred in the simple task of removing junk from a an office or business site.
