Have a SMASHING time with our mobile Rage room


Because sometimes you just need to destroy something, says UK waste company

Has your family sent you mad? Is your boss driving you crazy?

Waste collection company Divert.co.uk are offering customers the opportunity to book a mobile ‘rage room’, which will let you smash a container full of items such as old furniture and dishes to blow off some steam.

Divert.co.uk spokesman Mark Hall explains, “think of an escape room, but instead of carefully going through all the items looking for clues you get to go HULK SMASH on everything.”

“It’s a great way to relieve some stress and have a bit of fun after the last year, so grab a bat and start swinging!”

If you’re angry and you know it, break some things

We’ve all felt so angry that you’ve just wanted to – in the words of Basil Fawlty – give it a damn good thrashing.

It turns out there is a logical explanation for why we do this instead of bottling up our rage, and it’s called catharsis. We prefer HULK SMASH, to be honest.

The catharsis/HULK SMASH theory views aggression as an effective way to reduce angry feelings, as a way to vent and rid ourselves of negative energy.*

This is the basic idea behind the growing phenomenon of ‘rage rooms’, which provides a safe space for you to break items without having to worry about hurting yourself or cleaning up afterwards.

It’s even been prescribed in the US as an alternative therapy for those looking to relieve built-up tension.

So, if you are wanting to HULK SMASH your way through a pile of junk, Divert.co.uk have just the thing for you.

The on-demand waste removal company came up with the idea after seeing how successful the idea was across the pond, plus they had a surplus of broken junk already at their disposal.

Hall: “Here’s the deal, we will turn up at your house with a mobile unit full of old bits of furniture, crockery, basically anything you can smash to bits.

“We’ll kit you out in PPE and give you a sanitised clean bat, and let you go nuts.”

Smash hits

Whether you want to blow off some steam or just have some fun, the mobile rage room is a unique experience that you can book to turn up outside your door.

Mark Hall from Divert.co.uk says you can expect to see a whole range of smashable items in the mobile rage room, so if you’ve ever wanted to throw a glass at a wall, go to town on a printer, or demolish a wardrobe – they’ve got you covered.

The team have even put together a rage room playlist for you to really get into the swing of it, including these *smash hits*:

Wrecking ball – Miley Cyrus
Killing in the name of – Rage against the Machine
Don’t stop me now – Queen (or Hammer to Fall, we’re flexible)
Sledgehammer – Peter Gabriel
Beat it – Michael Jackson
I Love the Sound of Breaking Glass – Nick Lowe
Jump Around – House of Pain
The Birdie Song (because it makes us want to smash things)
Hall: “We will even let you bring your own music to make the experience more personal for you, we won’t judge if you want to smash up things to a bit of Taylor Swift if your scumbag ex cheated on you.”

And to round off the experience, you’ll even get the opportunity to pose for a photo at the end with your bat outside the truck – the perfect way to show off how much fun you’ve had on social media.

“We promise it’ll be an experience you’ll never forget, and you’ll leave with a clearer mind to focus on the more positive things in life.”

“Plus it helps us get rid of some of the junk we’ve been collecting, so win-win really!”
