Junk Hauling For Better Business Practices [Tips]

Junk Hauling For Better Business Practices [Tips]

It's summertime and the living isn't always easy if you're a business owner. Especially if you have junk hauling tasks to deal with.

Sometimes there are tasks that are simply not in line with your profession. Like taking care of the junk removal from your recent office clean-up or relocation. You are faced with a choice of trying to do it yourself, or hiring someone else to do it for you.

This makes sense for a number of chores such as legal issues, tax filing, and even your payroll.

You could hire staff to do these things, but for most businesses it makes for more fiscal sense to outsource these types of tasks. Just because you are smart, competent, and capable does not mean everything your business needs done should be a DIY project.

Unless You are a Professional Junk Hauler You Are Not In The Business Of Junk Removal

Owning a truck, or having an employee with a truck, is never a good enough reason to do your own junk removal. Unless you actually are a junk removal company, your business is not in the business of junk removal!

As a business owner you need to carefully consider every decision that involves an expenditure. And hauling unwanted junk and excess equipment or refuse will involve some expense. But it is often far more cost-effective to outsource this job to a local professional firm like Junk King.

In fact, depending on where your business is located, there may even be some city or county restrictions on just what you can or cannot haul and dispose of yourself.

Five Tips for Benefiting From Professional Junk Removal

You may have what seem like good reasons to haul your company’s junk yourself, or hire someone you know that has a truck. Fair enough, but the benefits and cost advantages of using a professional junk removal firm far outweigh them.

1. Leverage the Convenience Factor

When you stop to consider the amount of time involved in clearing out, loading, and then hauling and disposing of your junk you may be talking about number of hours, possibly days lost. The time you or your employees spend doing this kind of work is time not spent doing what you pay them for.

2. Take Into Account the Health and Safety of Your Employees

Depending on the quantity and nature of your waste, the simple work of moving it can be hazardous. Cuts, abrasions and back strains are very real consequences of clearing and hauling junk. In addition, you may be working with actual hazardous materials that need to be handled properly and legally.

Without proper training and proper equipment, disposing of some waste can lead to complications.

3. Realize the Benefits of Measurable Cost Savings

When you factor in not only the time and wages spent on employees (or yourself) cleaning and hauling your junk, and the opportunity cost of other that’s work not getting done, it becomes an expensive proposition. Using your own employees for junk hauling not only invites potential issues with injuries and overtime costs.

4. Benefit from the Reliability and Efficiency of a Professional Firm

There is more to proper junk removal than simply throwing stuff into the back of a truck. Knowing what can be disposed of legally and where constitutes a large part of what makes a professional firm the better choice.

And simply taking everything to the local landfill – assuming there is one – is not always the most cost-effective means of disposal. Recycling and re-purposing many items and materials is a responsible approach for a business to take.

5. Factor in the Intangible Benefit of Enhanced Aesthetics

A common option for far too many businesses is to simply shuffle their excess equipment, furniture and other junk from one storage space to another. Sometimes these items end up outside their place of work, creating unsightly and potentially hazardous conditions.

But the prospect of having to sort, load, haul and somehow dispose of all that stuff keeps them from doing anything about it. Yet having it removed quickly and safely by a professional hauling company will instantly improve the aesthetics, safety and appearance of a business site.

Looking to Get Rid of Your Old Computers This Year? Consider Recycling!

When computers become broken or obsolete, they do not have to end up in the trash. There are many ways to recycle computers, including donation, repurposing, parts salvage, and recycling individual materials.

What Is Computer Recycling?

Computer disposal starts like any junk removal process, but then the device goes through stages of sorting and recycling. Computers can be given away to non-profits to help schools or the less fortunate. In other cases, a broken computer may have many working parts that can be re-used to fix another broken computer.

To recycle computer parts, the processing facility separates it into plastics, metals, the circuit board, cables, and other parts. Many of these items can be melted or otherwise repurposed.

Best of all, when you recycle computers you help prevent millions of pounds of toxic e-waste from reaching landfills, where chemicals may harm the soil and water supply.

Things to Consider With Computer Recycling

Computer recycling must be done efficiently to make the process cost-effective and truly green. You also need to deal with professionals to make sure your computer data is not compromised.

Some tips for proper computer disposal:

  • Wipe your hard drive to remove personal data
  • Do not give away computers to disreputable organizations
  • Use environment friendly junk removal services to safely handle the disposal and recycling process
