Most people who move into a house with a garage are very good to start with and keep it moderately tidy and put the car away every night without fail. Then the end of the summer comes, and the table, chairs and umbrella get stored at the back of the garage and the car doesn’t fit so well anymore, so it stays out on the drive. This is when the rot sets in and within a year or so, you can’t move in the garage for old paint pots, odd roller skates and a broken down fridge.
Tidying a garage isn’t quite like tidying a house. There isn’t likely to be much of value in there and even when it is done, it isn’t going to be a wonderful space you will spend time in. This is why most garage clearance attempts are doomed to failure. Apart from anything else, what are you going to do with all the stuff that was in there? It looks even worse in a pile on the drive. Hiring someone to do the garage clearance is by far the best plan. They won’t be emotionally bonded to the old punctured paddling pool with the dried frog in it which has been in the corner for years. They can throw it out if it is rubbish without a qualm.
The other excellent point to consider when getting someone in to clear your garage is that they will haul the stuff away. With so many councils now tightening up on what can be left where at the tip, you need to know what you are doing when it comes to disposing of things like old paint, oil and garden pesticides. A professional team of garage clearance experts will know what can be disposed of where and you will know that everything will be taken away and dealt with safely for you, your family and the environment. Plus, you get to put the car away again!
