When you have decided to move to a new house or apartment, one of the first jobs on the list is to find a local rubbish removal company to help with the process.

1300Clearout has over 14 years’ experience organising local rubbish removal in the Brisbane area and we have some top tips to help your move go smoothly. It is inevitable that you will have some old furniture or appliances that you do not want to take to your new place. Whether you are downsizing, moving to a retirement village, or heading interstate, here are some handy tips that may help.

Pre-sale spruce up

One of the first and most important jobs before you head off to the real estate agents is to get your place looking top notch. Selling any kind of property is a competitive business and presenting your place in the best way should help you to achieve the best valuation possible. 

Green waste removal

Nobody likes to see piles of old green waste down the back of the garden. 1300Clearout has a handy skip bin hire service, especially for green waste. The bins are on wheels and can often be located right near the green waste pile making the arduous task of hauling the green waste a little easier. They also have opening doors at each end which allows you to walk in rather than having to throw it over the side. The bins are priced very competitively when compared to the alternative options.

To give you an indication, the following prices are for a 7 day hire for rubbish removal in the Brisbane and Logan areas:

For 3 cubic meter size $185

For 4 cubic meter size $215

For 5 cubic meter size $245

For 6 cubic meter size $275

For 7 cubic meter size $300

To present your home in its best light you should aim to give it a cozy atmosphere while showing its potential at the same time. Too much furniture and clutter can have a negative influence on a potential buyer and this can be an even more significant issue if you have lived in the home for many years or are a hoarder. 

1300Clearout has a great service which is aimed at helping with those larger jobs you might not be able to handle yourself. With the “Full Service” option they will send one of the 10 cubic meter trucks with a minimum of two strong men. They will take the rubbish from wherever it is located and load it onto one of their sign-written trucks.

With this service there is an easy-to-understand pricing structure which includes GST, labor, transport, and tipping fees. To give you an idea of pricing:

1/4 of a truck load is $249

½ of a truck load is $349

¾ of a truck load is $449

And a full truck load is $549

On the day of the move

Once everything has been signed and sealed there is often a few weeks’ notice before the day of the move.  Especially when downsizing or moving interstate, there will often be quite a bit of furniture and other household items that you do not want to take to your new place. 1300Clearout has introduced a service that fits in well when handling this situation. 

On the day of the move, simply instruct the company handling your move to place any unwanted items, furniture, white goods etc. outside the house or in the garage.  

With 1300Clearout “load-and-go” service they will turn up on time with one of their 10m3 trucks with one man to load. Prices for this service are also upfront and include GST, loading, tipping, and transportation. 

To give you an idea of pricing:

¼ of a truck load is $149

½ of a truck load is $249

¾ of a truck load is $349

And a full truck load $449
