With summer here to stay for awhile and the weather at least fair to good wherever you may be, you’re probably thinking this is a great time to do up some of those household jobs that need to be taken care of. Things like cleaning out the clutter that’s accumulated from the winter, getting rid of old, broken things like beds, cupboards and the like, and maybe even ripping up that old carpet to replace it with something fresh to inject new life into your home. But how can you get all these little projects done with as little time and money injection as possible? Check out these great tips below.
Hire A Man With A Van
A man with a van through websites like Shiply is a great way to get the best deal on a helping hand to remove all that junk from your house – whatever it is. If you and your friends don’t have the right vehicle to help, this can be an excellent way to save money while employing a local person running their own small business. Shiply showcases small, locally run businesses in your area so you can help buy and support local while you’re getting help with what you need. This is a great option if you don’t need a huge moving van and only need to run things back and forth to the dump or another location such as someone who’s purchased a chest of drawers or other.
A Friendly Helping Hand
Enlisting the help of friends and family – especially those who have experience in decorating and replacing things like flooring – is a great way to save money when doing up a house. Likewise, getting help from friends is a great bonding experience and you can do things for them like put on a barbecue afterwards with cold brews and fun times. If your friends have a truck or van as well, it’s a double whammy of how awesome it can be to ask for help from friends and family – you get someone for the grunt work as well as the shuttling of rubbish!
The Professional Touch
Of course, if you want to go with the professional touch, you can always hire a professional company from your local area to come in and do the jobs you need doing for a fee. Professional companies can be a great option if you aren’t sure what you’re doing yourself or you don’t have any friends who know either. The benefit to hiring professionals as well is that they know exactly what they are doing, do it in record time and will clean up afterwards as well, so it’s a win-win for you and you don’t have to lift a finger except to pay the invoice.
So if you’re looking for great ways to do up your house but you aren’t sure how to get started, consider one of the ways above. With summer being a great time to get any reno project underway, there’s no time like the present to create the truly stunning home of your dreams.
