The Brizzy Rubbish Removal’s Salute to Property Managers!

It’s the landlord charging for Champagne in a Passion Pop neighbourhood…
It’s the tenant who demands a rent reduction because the paint colour upsets her chakras….
It’s the accumulation of old couches….
And the mystery stain that is totally invisible to the ex-tenants
And it’s the smell of “the dog that never lived there’.

These are the battle grounds of the modern property manager, and they’re not pretty…

Brizzy Rubbish Removals wants Brisbane Property Managers to know, we’re on your side. So, here are a few pictures that have given us a giggle (and a grimace) over the years, and hopefully we can brighten your day. Oh, and if you’re not a Brisbane Property Manager, have a read, have a laugh and send it to your local real estate office!

We love landlords – and we know you do too – but there’s always one isn’t there? He’s a tad, well frugal, and his property descriptions show he is a truly creative man (or woman)!

How he described
the property...

How he estimated
the rent...

The actual

And now it’s up to you to find a professional couple, who’ll pay top dollar rent, to live in his hovel….

But it’s not just the cheeky landlords, no matter how good they look on paper, no matter how glowing the reference check, there’s always one tenant that will drive you mad!

The piggy professionals…. They seemed like a good bet, young I.T. professionals…. might do a bit of cabling work at home….

The young working family…
Dad works, mum works, and kids have busy schedules – not much time for cooking (or cleaning)

The bunch of university students… you know it’s a risk but let’s face it, nobody else wants to live in the dump….

The non-smokers… who never smoked in the apartment. The walls are yellow and there’s a foul stench of nicotine…. Must have blown in off the street!

The Renovators… They can’t wait to get out of renting and into their own home. And they’re more than happy to do your landlord a favour and get a bit of renovating practice in.

The kind souls…. Who just thought the next tenants might need some furniture.

Whatever you face in the Property Manager Battleground, Brizzy Rubbish Removals are your brothers in arms, your wingmen, your back up – we’ll come in, clean it up and take it away, while you sit back and refuse to refund the bond! Give us a call or look around the site to see what we can do for you.

Recycle Your White Goods And Be Healthy, Wealthy And Wise!

When white goods turn to rusty goods, it can be more serious than you think. They’re not just bad for your wallet and the environment; they can be bad for your family’s health. But don’t do your back and waste a whole Saturday hauling them off to the dump… call in Brizzy Rubbish Removals to get rid of them hassle free.

Did you know…

Recycling aluminum saves 95%* of the energy it takes to convert it from bauxite, plastic saves 88%* and using recycled material in steel production saves 75%* of the energy needed to make new steel, reduces emissions by 90%* and water use by 40%* - so it’s lucky Brizzy Rubbish Removal is all about doing your recycling for you – so you can feel 100% good with 0% effort!

Running that old fridge as a drinks fridge might seem like a good idea in summer but old, near empty, inefficient fridges might be costing you more than you think. A five star, modern, energy efficient fridge uses HALF^ the power of a poorly rated, inefficient model (probably like the one in your garage, laundry or shed!)

Older CFC (Chlorofluorocarbon) refrigerant gasses are detrimental to the environment and frequently leak out as the fridge or freezer ages. It can be hard to know if there is a leak because they are completely odourless. Brizzy not only removes your old fridges and freezers but ensures (where possible) they are recycled responsibly.

Very old refrigerators and chest freezers may be a serious risk to your family’s health. These old fridges and freezers may look charming and antique but they can contain the deadly combination of Freon gas and copper parts. The amount of Freon that could leak from a refrigerator is harmless to people (but detrimental to the environment) in it’s natural form. However, when it meets with copper tubing that is exposed to the environment, or with extreme heat, it forms a chemical called Phosgene – a deadly chemical warfare agent. It’s extremely rare these days but if you are keeping an antique fridge in the garage, you might want to get it checked out before you do any welding near by!

Computer and electronics parts (including those found in some modern white goods) are made up of some highly toxic materials (such as Beryllium Oxide, a powerful carcinogen) and some highly recyclable ones (including many common metals) making it especially important to keep these items out of landfill and to put them through the proper recycling process. Don’t just dump your computer parts in the bin; let Brizzy Rubbish Removal collect them when we come for that old fridge!

Call Brizzy now to save energy, money and maybe even your health (oh, and of course, your precious Saturday!)
