Citizen’s Advice has warned that the coronavirus pandemic is exacerbating marriage problems and putting a strain on relationships, while family lawyers are expecting a ‘divorce boom’ post lockdown.

With more couples deciding to separate comes an inevitable increase in people wanting and needing to get rid of possessions as they seek to sell their shared property, or leave the family home.

Divorce can be an incredibly sensitive and emotional time. Just Clear can help ease the pressure by helping to move those unwanted items, so you can move on.

Here are 5 reasons why using the services of a rubbish removal company can help.

1. Peace of mind

A divorce can be a tumultuous time and while getting rid of items you no longer want will be an essential job, it’s not one you have to do alone. Hiring a reliable rubbish removal company such as Just Clear will help with some of the literal and metaphorical heavy lifting and take one item on your long list of things to do off your hands.

Having to consider skip permits, opening/closing times for refuse sites, rules and regulations of disposing of different kinds of waste, hiring a van, getting help with loading/unloading…it’s a workload you could do without.

Knowing we’re fully licenced and insured, come highly recommended on Trustpilot,  and that we proudly recycle and reuse as much of the unwanted items we collect as we can, will give you peace of mind knowing that your things have been disposed of safely and sustainably.

2. Skip on the skip

Hiring a skip can be a tricky process under normal circumstances – we’re talking about such things as the permit application, and guessing the correct size for what you need. Then there’s the prospect of having the skip sat outside your property for days – not ideal when you are in the process of moving out or wanting a swift conclusion on disposing of your items.

Our Wait & Load service is a simple and speedy skip alternative. Arrange a convenient time for us to arrive and you are free to fill up our van or truck with your unwanted waste for us to take it away and recycle it with our eco-friendly service. We even offer a same-day option if required. If you would rather leave the heavy lifting to us, our Man & Van service will be what you are after. 

3. Give some space

Using a rubbish removal company of course helps to clear some space and free you of unwanted items, but it can also give some space between those who need it most. Repeatedly going in and out of a property you may be leaving, moving items as you go, could increase pressure, and heighten emotions unnecessarily. Simply let us know what is to be collected, we’ll give you a quote, and our friendly, professional team can do the rest.

You don’t even have to be around when our team arrives – as long as all the items to go are clearly identified as such, perhaps using brightly coloured labels, we can get on with the job while you can be elsewhere safe in the knowledge that everything is being taken care of. 

4. Let us lighten the load

While there will likely be specific items you know need to go, the separation process may ignite a wider clear out of the things that you both knowingly and unwittingly accumulated during your time as a couple.

We can offer a helping hand at whichever corner of the house – from the overloaded attic to the forgotten basement, right through to your shambles of a shed! We’re more than up for the challenge of a tangle of electrical items, or bulky sofas or mattresses. Let us tackle the whole house and help lighten the load. 

5. Valuation included

The breakdown of a relationship can often bring up conversations around money – whether it be the separation of shared finances, perhaps buying a partner out of a jointly owned property, or even a discussion around legal fees.

In some cases, you may want to have some of your possessions valued to help with these conversations – we at Just Clear are happy to offer this service, saving you time in trying to source advice from elsewhere. Antiques, art, collectables, and high-quality designer furniture are some of the items that could retain significant value. We work with a panel of experts who are professionals at valuing assets and can make sure you get the most out of your possessions.

Whatever the particular circumstances, when a couple separates it’s often a trigger for a bit of a clear-out and can be an important part of the emotional process, as much as a practical necessity.
