Post Death Roll Off Dumpster Rental - Palm Bay, Florida

 
 
An unfortunate need for a dumpster rental is a death in the family.  Have you had a recent death in the family?  I did.  deceased dumpster rental death in family clean out
 
My father died suddenly.  His death was not at all expected.  Don’t get me wrong, he wasn’t the picture of perfect health.   He was only sixty-nine years of age (young in my eyes), when his untimely death forever changed my family’s life.  The timing of my father’s death was less than opportune, especially since he passed in late December and the holidays were underway.   
 
Both of my parents were in the midst of downsizing and moving in with my grandmother to care for her in Grant.  My father was newly retired and had big plans of relaxing, vacationing, and enjoying his golden years.  Unfortunately my dad came down with pneumonia and was hospitalized.  As his condition worsened, he went from being on a respirator to a ventilator (life support).  After experiencing the emotional roller coaster and its ups and downs of hope, and then bleakness, my family faced the tough choice of letting go.  I was faced with dealing with my own grief and helping my mother plan for his funeral, write an obituary, and get rid of some of his possessions she could no longer bear to look at. 
 
Luckily, my husband and I own a roll off dumpster rental company, so this helped with disposing of many of the items my mom couldn’t sell or donate.  It was overwhelming at first and painful to look at some of the items in their garage that reminded me of him.   My father wasn’t a collector, or a hoarder, and he was relatively organized from what I saw.  My father, like the majority of parents had piles of items he no longer used or needed (even when he was alive), and could get rid of.

Have a De-Cluttering Plan 
 
3 Essentials Needed When Doing An After Death Estate Clean Out
 
Aside from having help of a family member or friend, taking your time, and saving a few keepsakes of memorabilia from your departed loved one, I have a few tips that will help with the daunting task of decluttering after a death in your family.  The items listed below, along with prayer, patience and soothing music will help you in performing an “estate clean up” after a family member has passed.    
 
1. Boxes
 
Having boxes on hand, along with a sharpie to label contents and help separate into categories will help with organization and transport.  Many of your loved one’s items can be donated or sold, so having sturdy cardboard boxes for this will aid you in the overwhelming task of arranging their belongings.  
 
 
Donating many of the belongings that are in usable condition to charity will make the process a little easier emotionally.  Knowing that you have helped someone else in need, in spite of the grief you are experiencing is a positive step in the healing process.
 
 
2. Your Smart Phone 
 
 
Have your smart phone handy to call charitable organizations such as:  Goodwill or Salvation Army.  Many of these non-profits will come to your residence and pick up items if you aren’t able to transport them to their location.  Not only are you donating to others in need, but you can also ask for a receipt and use this on your next tax return as a deduction.
 
 
You may also wish to have your smart phone handy to take pictures of items you wish to sell.  Web sites like Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, 10 Day Ads, Ad to Ad, and AdLandPro are all free to list and sell your items.  A picture says thousand words, so it’s advisable to post photos of furniture, clothing, shoes, collectibles, and things of this nature.  There are also many free Apps available to post items on locally, such as:  Letgo, OfferUp, Decluttr, and Close5.  
 
 
If you’re in need of social interaction and live in a neighborhood with a decent amount of traffic, and not limited by HOA restrictions, you may wish to have an estate sale, yard sale, or garage sale.  This is a lot of work, since it includes:  advertising your items, merchandising and tagging them, and physically having the sale.  Then their is the aftermath of cleanup and the issue of what to do with the remaining items.  If you choose to go this route, have a friend or family member help out.  Freecyle and the non-profits listed above, and/or the classified websites and apps can aid in getting rid of the remainder of objects.
 
 
3. A Roll Off Dumpster
 
 
Some belongings, unfortunately cannot be sold or donated and are just debris.  Renting a dumpster for a garage clean out or entire home clean out after a death in the family can greatly reduce stress.  It ends up being less of an obligation than renting a storage locker as well.  Research has shown that a tiny storage unit (5 ft x 5 ft costs on average $40 - $50/month, while a 10ft x 15ft storage unit costs $75-$140/month). Renting a roll off dumpster for 10 days to two weeks costs the same as renting a storage unit for two to four months.  
 
Express Roll Off has dumpsters for rent in various sizes to accommodate your waste disposal needs.  Express Roll Off rents dumpsters throughout Palm Bay and most of Brevard County, Florida in the following sizes:  10, 15, 20, and 30 yard dumpsters.  Our roll offs have hinged doors that swing open for was loading too.  When renting from Express, there’s no need to lift and launch your heavy, bulky items over the side of the roll off.
 
Having a death in the family is difficult.  Losing my father was one of the hardest times in my life, so I sympathize with anyone going through this grieving process.  Fortunately, the majority of my family lives locally, so cleaning out my father’s items, making funeral arrangements, etc.  were easier to execute.  
 
If you have elderly family members, ask them if they need help cleaning out their attic, shed, garage, closets, or their home in general.  Various research suggests that clutter in the home can be responsible for raising stress levels and can also reduce productivity. As adults get older, having a house full of “stuff” may also increase the risk for falling and create additional health and safety hazards.  It is far better to purge a home when our loved ones are here with us and accidents; even deaths, can be avoided. Whether you live locally, or out of town and have a family member in need of a dumpster rental for a clean out call Express Roll Off Dumpsters in Brevard County, Florida 321-253-1080.

New Year's Resolution Roll Off Dumpster Rental at Express Roll-Off

15 yard new year's dumpster

Many of us rang in the New Year last night and made our resolutions.   The holidays are fun and relaxing, but unfortunately leave a mess behind.  Stop procrastinating today and reserve your roll off dumpster to clean up from guests, gifts, and all the trash the season leaves us with.  Our 15 yard dumpster is the most popular size we rent.  It’s ideal for mid-sized clean outs and medium home improvement projects.  We have had many customers already inquire about renting dumpsters from Tuesday on (which is when we resume business).  The most common uses from our telephone and email inquires are roll off containers for junk clean outs, which includes:  boxes, mattresses, household items, box springs, etc.  
 
 
If you’re putting off calling to reserve a dumpster for 2018, we suggest you act now.  Not only are our contractors going to be busy fulfilling insurance claim property damages, but homeowners like you are all thinking along the same lines and want to take back their pre-holiday home.  Our 15 yard dumpsters fit more than four and a half pick up trucks full of debris- that’s a lot of rubbish.   We not only include free drop off and pick up, but we also allow a longer rental term than the majority of our competitors.  What will a 15 yard roll off rental cost?  Generally, depending on your location within Brevard County and of course what you plan on putting in the dumpster; the cost only runs a little over $16/day (based on a 14 day rental term).  Our 15 yard bins are ideal for garage clean outs, re-roofs, mid-sized renovation projects, attic clean outs, and more.  Our 15 yard roll off dumpsters measure 16.5’ L x 5’ H x 8’ W.

Brevard County FL Growth Due to Healthy Job Market

brevard county florida map

The construction and growth outlook for Brevard County Florida remains strong, due to the county's stable job market.  Brevard's residential new construction has grown by 4676 new homes from 2010 to 2016.  This is an average of 779 new homes built in Brevard County per year.   Currently, Brevard County's population is estimated at 583,000, and expected to hit at least 600,000 by 2025.  This surge in population is equivalent to adding another large city  (nealy the size of Melbourne) to the Space Coast area.  What does this mean for our county?  More people will be relocating to Brevard in the next seven years.  The housing market, construction market, and the job market should continue to rise proportionally with the increase in population in our area.

43% in Brevard County Fl Still Awaiting Insurance Claim Settlement

blue tarped roof after irma

Only 40% of hurricane Irma insurance claims were settled in Brevard county in late October, leaving 60% of of those who filed still waiting to settle their claims.  Brevard County officials reported earlier in the month of October, that over 35,000 claims has been filed in Brevard and the Office of Insurance Regulation (OIR) said over 21,000 remain open (as of late October).  When speaking with family members, coworkers, and friends thier accounts proably support the statement.  To date: (Deceber 1, 2017) roughly 43% of the insurance claims still remain unsettled.  When speaking to my in-laws during Thanksgiving (both living in Rockledge) both my sister-in-law and mother-in-law filed claims just after the hurricane, neither one has had their claim settled yet.  My mother-in-law said the companies told her they're trying to take care of claims with the worst damage first.  Molly, my mother-in-law, told me she had a tarp over part of their roof and were waiting to have an entire re-roof.  The insurance companies are catering to the more severe cases (from what she told me) like residences that lost their entire roof and can't simply tarp the partially damaged area. 

Hurricane Matthew had less than half of the claims Irma had (roughly 16,000) and 91% had been settled towards late October.   Irma's damage was much more widespread which probably has an impact in the companies assessing the damage and processing all of the claims in a timely fashion.

Veteran's Day Dumpsters for Rent

Veterans day dumpsters

Express Roll Off is busy renting dumpsters as Veteran's Day approaches.  Most of us have Veterans in our lives.  We are blessed to know family members, friends, and/or colleagues that have courageously served our country.  As this holiday approaches, many of us are still recovering from the aftermath of storm damage or hurricane cleanup left behind from Hurricane Irma.  A vast amount of people have just heard back from insurance claims they've submitted weeks ago.  As a result, we at Express Roll Off dumpsters are experiencing an unusually high demand for roll off dumpsters.  Our typical turnaround time for drop off and pick up of roll off containers is now 2-3 days instead of our 1-2 day norm.  Please be patient with us, since we don't want to mis-quote you with an unrealistic rental time-frame.  Veteran's Day falls on Saturday the 11th of November this year, but is observed as a national holiday on Friday.  This means the local landfills will be closed on Friday (both Sarnno and Cocoa).  Express Roll-Off will still be dropping off dumpsters on Friday and is open for business. We are however limited with pick ups, since the dump is not operating.
