Dealing with the aftermath of an eviction can be a huge headache for landlords. Once a tenant is evicted, they often leave behind a huge amount of stuff – furniture, clothes, appliances, trash bags full of who knows what.
As a landlord, you’re legally responsible for removing everything left behind on the property. And if you thought the eviction process itself was stressful, now you have to figure out how to clear out a fully furnished apartment or home.
This is where we can help you with full-service eviction cleanouts. We specialize in removing everything left behind quickly and efficiently after a tenant is evicted in Chicago and the suburbs. We also handle the entire process for you – from scheduling a time that works for you and bringing our trained crew and proper equipment to remove all items to leaving the unit completely cleared out and broom swept.
Eviction cleanouts can be overwhelming and time-consuming if you don’t have the right help. The volume of stuff tenants leave behind can be staggering. And most landlords simply don’t have the resources, manpower, or tools needed to discard large pieces of furniture or appliances.
Let us take this major hassle off your hands. Our eviction cleanout service aims to make this process as smooth and stress-free as possible for landlords.
Reasons Landlords Need Eviction Cleanouts
When tenants are evicted from a property, they often leave behind a huge amount of belongings and trash that landlords are then legally responsible for removing. This can become an incredibly stressful and overwhelming task for them to take on.
Once an eviction takes place, landlords will find that tenants frequently leave behind large furniture items like couches, beds, tables, and desks that fill up rooms. There are also often many smaller things such as clothing, cookware, appliances, and children’s toys that are left scattered about.
Additionally, tenants tend to leave behind trash bags full of waste and unwanted belongings that landlords must clear out. The volume of possessions and garbage left behind after an eviction can be staggering, often requiring multiple truckloads to completely remove and dispose of everything.
Legally, landlords cannot simply lock up and abandon belongings after an eviction. They are required to notify tenants and follow a process for disposal possessions. This means that they may eventually face the daunting task of figuring out how to systematically sort through, transport, and discard all of the leftover furniture, clothes, appliances, and trash. If they fail to follow proper protocols, they could face legal repercussions.
For most of them, attempting to carry out a full eviction cleanout on their own is extremely difficult. They simply do not have access to the proper manpower, vehicles, tools, dumpsters, and physical ability to efficiently coordinate a large-scale removal.
Taking on the manual labor of lifting heavy furniture, loading up trucks, and unloading at dump sites is backbreaking without a professional crew and equipment. And organizing multiple runs back and forth takes a tremendous amount of time that most landlords do not have to spare.
Additionally, if landlords do not correctly follow local guidelines and procedures for the removal process, they could be opening themselves up to potential legal issues. There are specific protocols that must be followed to protect landlords’ interests following an eviction.
Without experience handling eviction cleanouts, landlords may misstep in how they catalog and dispose of tenants’ belongings. This makes hiring professional eviction cleanout services that know proper procedures very important. We suggest working with your legal team and/or property management team to handle the process according to your local jurisdiction regulations.
Companies like ours exist to help take this massive burden of the heavy lifting and hauling off the hands of landlords. With trained staff and proper equipment, we simplify the process and make eviction cleanouts quick, efficient, legally compliant, and stress-free.

The total cost of an eviction cleanout depends on several factors:
- Size of the unit – Larger homes or apartments with more rooms and square footage will be more expensive. We charge by how much space we have to clear out and in the case of evictions labor to remove items from the property.
- Amount of items being removed – More belongings and furniture means a higher cost. We estimate the volume and truck space needed for the removal.
- Type of items – Most furniture items, appliances, and other junk are standard pricing. Heavy construction debris (large amounts of brick, cement, demolition material) can increase pricing due to weight limitations on our trucks, but typically this is a non-issue for these pickups.
Because each eviction cleanout is unique, we provide upfront, honest pricing estimates to landlords and property managers. We just need the address and details on how much needs to be cleared out.
The average eviction cleanout costs can vary, but prices may increase for larger homes filled with possessions. We provide an all-inclusive upfront quote – there are no hidden fees later.
You can book and schedule a cleanout date through our website, by providing your property address and cleanup details.
