Selling Your Home in Etobicoke and Wondering Where To Put All Your Stuff?

Selling your home in Etobicoke and wondering where to put all your stuff?

As you’re probably aware, one of the key steps to preparing your home for sale in Etoboke is to get rid of as much clutter as possible. You want to make every room look spacious and comfortable.

But what do you do with the pictures, boxes, clothing, tools, furniture and other stuff you need to take out of your home?

Selling Your Etobicoke Home

For items that you don’t want anymore, you have two options: dispose or donate. You can dispose of items at your local waste depot or recycling centre, (but be sure to call ahead to confirm which items they will accept.) Donations can be made to organizations like Goodwill and The Salvation Army. These organizations are interested in good furniture, clothing, appliances (that work), bikes and other toys (that don’t need repair), and tools.

For items you want to keep, consider renting space at a local self-storage facility. Most offer a variety of storage options from lockers to garages, and typically charge by the month. As for security, most self-storage facilities have fencing, gates that require a passcode, cameras and other security features. You can also lock your own unit.

One of the drawbacks of self-storage is that you have to move your stuff twice – first to the storage unit, and then to your new home. An alternative that’s becoming increasingly popular is a Mobile Storage Unit. The unit is placed in your driveway for a few days while you load it with the items you want stored. Then it’s picked up by the mobile storage company and taken to their warehouse. When you move, the company simply drops the unit off at your new home for unloading.

For more tips and tricks of the trade. Please sign up for a complimentary strategy session with me where you will get the up to date information on the current real estate market and information you won’t find here on the blog!
