What is a Trash-Out?

A Trash-Out is when there is no monetary value in the items we are hauling off. And boy, did we do a trash-out for the books this week! This farmhouse sitting on several hundred acres has been vacant going on 10 years! Our crew helped out this client by clearing out a building and cellar, two sheds, and the whole house. We came back with some goodies that we were able to salvage, so check out those here.


This house was built in the 1930’s, and since it’s been empty for almost a decade, you can imagine the state it was in, as well as the contents.




The inside of the house wasn’t that bad, but then we went to the building.






And then the “room” behind this one, with a wall busting out…






And the floor rotting, along with everything else in it…






Not to mention the cellar… (check out the creepy baby picture!)

Yeah, we are crazy. But, we are also aiming to offer more than other liquidators. To offer options, and be able to provide services that fit different circumstances and people. Moving on to the after pictures…


Drum Roll Please!






We didn’t even know it was a concrete slab until after we had started sweeping!


And, remember the rotting room?






Now, the cellar isn’t as creepy as it was before:

We accomplished the cellar and building trash-out in one full day.

We completed the house the next day.

Stay tuned for more adventures, and to see what we get into next!

    Gosh I wish you had posted pictures of the inside of the house! I bet I’m not the only one who would have enjoyed seeing the old woodwork, shiplap walls, etc…

      Kara, I can do that in another blog post. I only got after pics of the house, but that would show you the floors and walls!
