Bulk Trash removal: Disposing Bulky Materials

At some stage, the very bulky and heavy items in our homes will need removing. You may have sold them because you are downsizing your house, or you may be replacing them as they are no longer useful to you. Bulky items are often heavy, and with an awkward shape makes them difficult to move. These unwanted items also need to be disposed of in a responsible manner and not just dumped. 

At Junk Removal Wirral, part of our job is helping residents of Wirral and its surrounds with the arduous task of moving or disposing of bulky items by doing a bulk trash removal for them. In our experience there are three items that often prove to be the most cumbersome to remove and the most challenging to dispose of, and these are: 

  • A piano
  • A hot tub
  • A large couch

Below we offer you some tips on how to make the removal of these bulky items easier.


Piano Disposal Challenges

There are a ton of difficulties with moving a piano and the weight is not the only one. With a piano weighing up to half a ton, it also has a very unwieldy shape by being top heavy with delicate legs. The tiny wheels on pianos are not designed for pushing that weight around further than a couple of inches, otherwise you could seriously damage this intricate instrument. 

  • A piano is an expensive, delicate, fragile, very heavy item that is notoriously difficult to move. To move a piano will require at least 4 people, some furniture dollies for rolling the piano on flat surfaces and some heavy-duty furniture straps. The piano needs to always be balanced so as not to damage any of the internal delicate workings. The sheer weight of the piano can cause serious injury if it falls on someone. 
  • Moving a piano is not an easy operation and can easily cause the owner to become stressed and emotional. As a professional bulk removal company, we can recommend leaving this difficult task to the professionals. 
  • The piano body will have to be wrapped in heavy blankets to protect it from damage. The lid should be secured and locked, after stuffing a blanket into the piano for extra protection against the movement. Ensure that you have the correct vehicle to haul it away.
  • The piano should be placed deep in the truck with as much support around it as possible and strapped in securely. Any shift during transport can cause damage to the piano.


As is apparent, a piano is an exceedingly difficult item to move and probably should be left to the experts. We would recommend using a professional removal company for your piano disposal.  


Hot Tub Removal Guidelines

Hot tubs are extremely popular as there is nothing more relaxing after a long, cold day than spending time in your hot tub. But when the time comes for you to get rid of your hot tub or if you are moving to a new house and want to take it with you, this presents a real challenge.

First, hot tubs are huge. Even the smaller ones are large. Hot tubs are very heavy and can weigh up to 800 and 900 pounds without water. Hot tubs are an awkward shape to get out of the house and onto a vehicle. Not only are they difficult to carry, but they present a challenge when they must be removed from their position.

At this point, it may just be preferable to leave it to the professionals. At Junk Removal Wirral we provide hauling services for your hot tub in the Wirral, Liverpool, Chester, and Ellesmere Port areas. Our team can remove and dispose of, or move your old hot tub professionally with minimal hassle to you. 


How to Dismantle your Hot Tub

Even if you are using a professional crew to move your hot tub, there are certain steps you can take to prepare for the hot tub removal that will save you money. So, whether you are replacing an old hot tub or moving to a new house, there is a small DIY job that you can complete before they arrive. 

  • Drain all the water out of it by connecting a pipe to the outlet. Use a long hose if the hot tub is inside the house. Drain the water directly into the garden or street gutter if the tub is outside.
  • Unplug the hot tub from the electrical network and store the power cord carefully.
  • Clean and dry the hot tub thoroughly. 

It is now ready for the removal crew to haul your hot tub away. These specialty movers will have all the correct equipment to move your hot tub safely, with no damage to your tub or to your property. Professional hot tub removal cost will be a pleasant surprise.
