There is just no telling a DIY worker that they can actually obtain professional help without having to pay through the nose for the privilege.
One of the great aspects of Australian culture is a ‘can do’ attitude where we feel empowered to do our own dirty work and leave the spending for other activities and endeavours.
Yet bringing aboard a professional rubbish removal service so happens to be conducive for residents that want to leave that hard work to more pressing matters.
Here we will discuss when the ‘Do It Yourself’ approach falls down flat, pointing to a superior alternative option that is just a phone call away.
Taking Multiple Tip Trips
Hiring expert rubbish removal services will ensure that a client has a team on the ground who know how to manage the transport of the waste loads. It could indeed take the operators multiple trips between location A and location B, but they will be able to sort what is general trash, what is green waste and what can be recycled or repurposed for other centres and charities. That continual churn to shift the waste from the home to a tip or depot centre can be an arduous one for a DIY worker, so why endure that headache when it can be easily avoided?
Paying for Fuel and Parking
If it is not a case of waiting on city streets or parking inside a depot to dump off multiple waste loads, it is certainly a case that DIY rubbish removal goes wrong when it comes to transport costs. Even the most economically friendly cars will churn through the fuel at a high rate when it comes to maneuvering high quantities of trash. For homeowners who have to carefully manage their money and keep reserves for more important matters, these are fees that build up over time. It will escalate should loads be missed, fall out of the vehicle or are not properly sealed or categorised correctly.
Physical Strains and Breaks
The term ‘back-breaking labour’ is thrown around a fair bit, but when it comes to the notion of DIY rubbish removal that can actually occur. From shifting fridges and furniture to bedding, cupboards, televisions and other products that are hefty in weight, all manner of ailments can be created when moving them from point A to point B. It is a frightful scenario that is accentuated when the setting is a condensed flight of stairs or an intimate elevator where space is at a premium. Physical fitness can be tested, even for those who are considered healthy and in their prime.
Exposure to Toxic Chemicals
From cleaning liquids, sprays and deterrents for pests around the home, these products can quickly become toxic when present amongst loads of waste. For the DIY rubbish removal practitioner, there can be no precautionary steps taken to ensure that exposure to poisonous chemicals will not occur. Once infected, people can become incredibly ill and even die in extreme cases. Why take the risk?
Piling On The Pile
The thing about DIY rubbish removal experts is that they have to actually get up and do it. That requires time and effort to physically get the gloves out, have the bags ready, utilise any boxes and extra equipment to grab the loads and shift them off site. This process goes wrong for many homes when one project is put off to the following week, or a second, or a third before eventually the endeavour becomes a monumental challenge. When garbage and needless debris is left to fester, it creates a knock-on effect where there is a greater sense of dread and despair about the situation. What would normally be a proactive response becomes inaction as the piles become greater in size and scope.
