Junk Removal in the Snow

Winter Has Arrived

Snow falls, but life continues on in the Great White North. People go to work, grocery shop, visit their loved ones. In fact, you may even find yourself moving house or needing to get rid of that old sofa during the winter months. At YYC Junk Removal, we see it all the time, and we have a few tips to make that junk removal Calgary just a little bit easier for you.

Shovel That Snow

Your crew will thank you for keeping your outdoor walkways clear! Honestly, this simple, key tip will help make your appointment go as smoothly and efficiently as possible. To be sure, moving a china cabinet can be difficult at the best of times – a clear path with gravel or salt on any icy patches work wonders.


Puddle Prevention

Nobody likes wet patches to step on with their socks! Unless otherwise specified by our clients, our Calgary junk removal team take their boots off when entering your home. However, bits of snow, ice, and sand sometimes sneak inside. If you have any extra mats or towels, we suggest placing these where our crew will be walking. That way, your floors will be protected from potential puddles.

Keep Your Pets Toasty

We love your pets, but never want them to escape into the cold! As you know, it gets pretty cold in Calgary. Lost pets are awful any time of the year, but especially when the temperature reaches -20. Our crew suggests safely shutting your animal friend in a room that won’t need to be entered to remove your junk.  Since our drivers give you a phone call to let you know they’ll be arriving soon, you’ll have plenty of time to make sure your pet is safe, secure, and snug.

Ready Your Junk

We do our best to make as few trips as possible. However, it can help your junk disappear even faster to gather any materials into 1 – 3 areas of your home. In fact, we suggest designating one room or area specifically for collection. Let our junk removal Calgary squad round up the junk for you before they make their trips to the truck. One of the biggest challenges in the winter can be keeping the heat in! Your doors will be opened (while the heat escapes!) far fewer times with a little planning ahead.

We Appreciate You

Junk removal in Calgary does our darndest to always be on time and to connect with you via telephone. Unfortunately, sometimes snowy conditions slow the city down to a crawl. Because safety is our #1 priority, if our team might be a bit late, they’ll be sure to let you know.

In conclusion, we know all too well the challenges winter brings in Canada! These 4 easy tips will assure your pre-Christmas purge or house move goes quickly and easily.
