Is it the second-semester of your child’s senior year? Are they ready to leave and have a place of their own after college graduation? If the answer is ” yes” then you may want to start the next phase of your life — empty nest. We know it may be hard, but we suggest you keep busy as you enter a time of having more space, more time and fewer things in the house.

Blue Box Rental Wishes You a Happy Thanksgiving!

We hope you and your family have a great Thanksgiving! We are very thankful for you — our current dumpster rental customers and those we hope will soon be our customers. The relationships we built in 2017 have made it a wonderful year and can’t wait to see the connections we make as this year comes to a close and a new one begins. And speaking of the end of the year, we believe Thanksgiving is the perfect holiday to lead into the Christmas season. While some seem to want to jump over it or leave it behind to rush to the Black Friday sales, we treasure this day as a reminder that we have so much, for which to be thankful. We at Blue Box rental truly hope that on Thursday, you stop and reflect on all your blessings, and the blessing that you have been to others this year. If you have your health, a home, friends, family, faith, a job, a pet or whatever it might be that makes life a little better, we hope you will take some time on this holiday to reflect on those gifts. Our intention is to do the same and then go into the “season of miracles” focusing on those gifts we have already received. If you need to reserve a dumpster, click here.

Moving? Leave the Junk…in a Blue Box Dumpster!

Are you taking advantage of the fall real estate sales season? Don’t move the junk! Load it in a rental dumpster and let Blue Box haul it away. Fall is one of the craziest times in the real estate market. Realtors are making deals. Buyers are putting in offers…and counteroffers. Sellers are moving furniture, packing boxes, and unloading items that once had value, but now…not so much. This is the stuff that often lines the pathways through garages and basements — and on occasion — bedrooms, living rooms and dining rooms. Let’s face it, in America, we know how to purchase and store stuff, long after we last used it. The last thing most people want to do is pack up stuff that no longer has value and move it to their new place. We recommend reserving one of our driveway-size rental dumpsters and using it like a large trash can. Throw away everything that is of no use to you or anyone else. Please contact us today to order your dumpster and get started right away on cleaning out and moving on to your life’s next adventure, with a slightly lighter load.

Fall Home Improvement Project? Get a Dumpster for the Mess!

Blue Box Dumpsters are the Perfect Size for the Mess from a Home Improvement Project. We at Blue Box Rental provide dumpsters for all kinds of jobs, including home improvement projects in the Hagerstown, MD and surrounding Tri-State area. Most times we are working with residents who are cleaning out a garage or basement. Sometimes it’s a homeowner or landlord who is refurbishing/renovating a home left in ruins by a renter who took advantage of the rental situation. But much of our work this time of year comes from builders that are doing demolition work at a job site or do-it-yourselfers making their home a little bit nicer and newer. Within just a few hours, this type of job site can go from a normal, everyday look to a dusty pile of rubble. That’s where we — and our dumpsters (roll offs) — come to the rescue. As soon as the cooler weather moves in, many homeowners begin plans to upgrade their homes before the holiday season. Some may be changing the floors, counter tops and cabinets in the kitchen. Others may be gutting bathrooms and putting in new fixtures and cabinetry. And even others may be converting the overstuffed basement into an in-law apartment. Whatever the project, the mess can build up in a hurry. The last thing builders — professional or handy homeowners — want on a job site is a scattered pile of debris to deal with in addition to completing the project. Top-rated builders will do the demolition work; clean up the job site; move into the construction phase; and clean up the site at the end of each work day. If your fall season consists of an exciting home improvement project, please let us help […]

Kids Leaving the House? Send the Junk Out Too!

Parents can use this time of year, when kids leave the nest, to gather up and rid themselves of the junk that has accumulated during the child-rearing years. This is the time of year when households often change. Usually adult children are heading off to college or, for those who have graduated, heading into the workforce and living in a place of their own. Either way, the family dynamic has changed and so have the living arrangements. Now is the time to get the house in order. You have about nine or 10 weeks of good working weather to get the house changed over to a “new space.” Now is the time to attack the clutter and make room for the next phase in life. Even if you plan to stay in the larger house, you will likely downsize some day. Use this time and the cool air as motivation to unload. The easiest way to start is to order a “perfect-size” dumpster from Blue Box Rentals. This way, when you decide it’s not quite good enough for Goodwill, it can go right in the roll off and straight to the landfill. This approach makes it very easy to do away with the junk that no longer has value to your family. Basically a customer calls or emails (info@blueboxrental.com) us to reserve one of our residential dumpsters online; we deliver it; the customer discards all of the household junk; and we haul it away as soon as the customer is done. It really is that easy. Just think, by the time the holidays roll around, you may have a basement suitable for those relatives who want to stay for days. Or, at the very least,  you have […]

No One Showed Up for the Auction

What do you do when no one shows up for the auction after a loved one dies? Many people find themselves in the same boat after the last loved one of the older generation dies. It is usually an auction. The one responsible for the estate has a vision of many showing up to the auction to bid, with bids going higher and higher as every last item is gone at the end of the day. What often happens is that some people show up and the bids are low or non-existent. And, at the end of the day, you still have 90 percent of the items and the problem of what to do with all the stuff. Now, we don’t advocate just throwing everything in the landfill. However, we think there is a multi-step plan to help rid yourself of the burden of stuff left in the wake of your loved one’s death. First, offer other relatives the chance to come and take a few items. Second, try and sell as much as possible. Third, donate stuff that you think is still useful to those shopping at Goodwill and Salvation Army stores. Then, call Blue Box Rental to deliver a dumpster to the driveway. You may even want to pay some local teens $10 each to help you carry the rest of the stuff from the house to the dumpster. Lastly, do not feel guilty. Stuff is just stuff. After life is over, stuff seems even less valuable. If you find that you are dealing with a house full of unwanted stuff and need help unburdening yourself, contact us at Blue Box and we will be happy to give you a quote for a […]

Garage Full of Junk? Make Room for the New Boat?

If your garage is full of junk, toss it in a dumpster and make room for that new boat, camper, jet skis, etc…. As soon as the warm temperatures moved in for good, you started thinking about fun summer activities, didn’t you? It’s the same for all of us. Boating, camping and all kinds of outdoor images start filling our heads. But then we open the garage door and think, “Where would I even put a boat or a camper or an all-terrain vehicle?” This is where the vision of what could be must take hold. Imagine all of that burdensome junk gone. Sure, a few things are worth selling at a yard sale or consignment shop, but the rest is just stuff that needs to go away. No one will ever use that pair of purple in-line skates again! Don’t let another summer go by without making a change. Turn that wasted space into an empty space. Then, turn that empty space into a parking spot for that new family toy. THEN, use that toy for a summer of family memories! If you need help as you clean out the junk, call us at Blue Box Rental and we’ll be happy to bring one of our residential-sized rental dumpsters (roll off) to your home if you live in the Tri-State area of Maryland, Pennsylvania or West Virginia.
