Residential Junk Hauling For Property Managers

Posted by Junk King on Jan 3, 2017 8:17:47 AM
The new year often means large numbers of renters moving to new homes. But when they move, the job of cleaning the rentals often falls on the property managers.



If you are a property manager you know that preparing a recently vacated rental unit for new tenants requires a great deal of work. Repairs, cleaning, possibly new carpet and paint all add up. But if the previous tenant left unwanted items and junk behind, you also have to deal the headache of junk removal and junk hauling.

Rental Homes and Apartments Require Regular Home Clean Outs

It seems that, while most prior tenants will leave the house or apartment empty, there are always those who leave behind things. Usually it is furniture, old mattresses, piles of cloths and garbage - essentially large amounts of junk that must be removed and disposed of. 

In the United States there are over 44,000,000 households that are renter-occupied. That’s over one-third of the population. And, while there are a large number of single-family homes being rented, a vast majority of those households are apartments. In California alone, for example, there are over 6,600,000 people who rent apartments. That's almost 20 percent of the state’s population.

According the U.S. Census Bureau close to 25 percent of all people living in renter-occupied housing units had lived in a different location the year before. And, while the reasons for moving vary, the number one reason people move on is job transfers which account for almost one out of 10 moves.

It's a Tough Job, But Someone Has to do the Junk Hauling

As most landlords and property managers know, cleaning out apartments can be a tough task that requires physical strength and hard work. When old furniture and other household items are left behind, someone has to haul these large and bulky items down flights of stairs and through hallways.

It is often and unfortunate situation when a landlord has to get rid of their tenant’s possessions. When a renter has to leave because of legal reasons - evictions and so forth - it can be a stressful experience for everyone. unfortunately, many people never fully clean the apartments before the leave, especially if they are being evicted. This often holds true for teneants who break their leases and move out without notice.

Too often, these people simply move on, leaving the burden of disposing of their junk on the landlord. The same type of scenarios can occur in with rental homes, as well. Though some large property management firms have the resources needed to effectively handle these often stressful situations, most mangers end up spending far more time and money than they should to get rid of the junk. 

And, while they might be able to sell some of the possessions, this is not as common a tactic as people might think. Most of the items are simply treated as worthless “junk” that the tenants didn’t want to bother taking and that needs to be dumped.

Property rental professionals and property managers also work with rental homes, vacation properties, duplexes, triplexes, and other types of leased properties. Like apartment tenants, these tenants can also fill their rental homes with large amounts of furniture and belongings that can get left behind when they move out. And, like apartment managers, these landlords can get overwhelmed by the task of junk hauling.

According to the NMHC, single-family homes add up to over 15,000,000 American households. That's 35 percent of the rental market and represents almost 47,600,000 people, or 43 percent of the population of the United States. And these people are constantly on the move. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, almost 13 percent of renters mover annually.

Of course, these vacated properties cannot be leased again until any abandoned junk is completely removed and the property is cleaned. And, as every property manager and landlord knows, each day the rental property sits unoccupied and full of junk is a day without rental income.
