The Waste is Piling Up
Rubbish removal companies have been thriving in recent years. If your house is like mine (full of stuff I don’t need, mainly junk) no wonder you want to get rid of all that. Gert some breathing space. Win some useable real estate in your home. Relax.
The UK is great to live in but at the same time access to extra funds plus the non-stop streams of commercials bombarding our senses results in people spending money on stuff they don’t need. Every Christmas, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, January Sales, Easter Sales etc. millions of pounds are spent on items. People buy based on their emotions and not necessarily based on logic. Clever marketing campaigns use that human vulnerability to persuade consumers to buy stuff they wouldn’t normally buy. All this stuff ends up in huge piles in attics, basements, sheds, under beds, gathering dust in cupboards and wardrobes never to be used again.
So, what do you do? You just throw it away?
Yes, yes and yes! This is the easiest thing to do. Well, not just throw it away but give it to charity. The right thing to do is to call a London rubbish removal contractor in your area, get it collected and delivered to your local charity shop/s. Trust me, you will feel much better. You feel liberated from a burden that has been silently bothering you for years. And your newly vacated internal real estate will be a nice added bonus to the feel-good emotion.
Charitable Donation or Sell it on Ebay?
Giving your things away to charity is the easiest and quickest solution. For those of you who want to get back some of the money you have spent on the things you gift, you can sell them on eBay or Gumtree. Don’t expect to recover more than 50% of what you have paid if that. People on these auction websites are looking for a bargain and will drive your price down. On top of that eBay charges commission on the sale price of the item. And, finally, these sales take time and energy. Be prepared to wait a good few weeks.
I’d go with the rubbish removal and get wall this waste collected as soon as possible. Trust me, you will never know how liberating it feels until you try.
