Packing Up, Moving Out, And Moving On, But You've Got Junk

Packing Up, Moving Out, And Moving On, But You've Got Junk


With the housing market as active as it's been over the last year, many people find themselves relocating. And residential junk removal is often needed.

And sometimes, especially with older families or couples, junk removal can be needed when they move out and, once again, when they move into a new home.


America is On the Move

In the United States, we have always been a people that are constantly "on the move." But there are some years when we tend to move more frequently or in higher numbers than other years. And 2021 was one of those years. 

According to data from the National Association of Realtors®, in 2021, existing-home sales totaled 6.12 million – an increase of 8.5% from the prior year and the highest annual level since 2006.

So, with over six million homes sold just last year, that means about the same amount of families or couples probably moved out of one home and into a new home.  And many of the homes they moved in to were previously occupied by other couples or families who, in turn, moved out, as well. 

That's quite a bit of moving! 

And, very likely, there was quite a bit of junk the folks got rid of before they moved.  Quite likely, as well, there were those who found they didn't get rid of enough when they relocated. Many times people find that the new home doesn't quite hold all their stuff they so carefully packed and then transported to the new place. 

Which is why Junk King specializes in residential junk removal. Because you never know!


When You Find You Have Too Much Stuff - So, Now it's Junk

Americans can be somewhat fickle, as well, when it comes to personal belonging and all their household goods. Or, as most people think of it, all their stuff. 

We cherish certain things and think little of others. Belongings that may be a coveted treasure to some, we see as unsecure baggage.  As long as we have a place for our stuff, then we tend to just let it stay. But if we have to box it, pack it, and move it, many "belongings" suddenly become just "junk."

So, we pack up our clothes, our personal items, our furniture, our tools and equipment and all the stuff we've acquired during our lives. And, in the process, we often start making decisions on what will go and what will be gotten rid of.  Which means the need for junk removal, because none of it can really "stay" if you're moving out.

What is distressing for people, however, often happens as they're unpacking at their new home and putting things inside. They many times find there's more stuff than room. Or they begin to reassess their stuff in light of their new circumstances and realize they don't want all of it after all. 

Which means the need for more junk removal, because you either can't keep it or don't want it any longer. 

Either way, residential junk removal is a chore that no one really wants to take on. It is difficult enough for most people anytime. But it is particularly inconvenient and stress-inducing when you're in the middle of a move and relocating.

Or when you're moving into a new home, in a new town, and you don't even know where to take it all if you wanted to. 

Which is another reason why Junk King specializes in residential junk removal - no matter where you live!


Taking Care of Residential Junk Removal With Junk King

Americans don't stay put for long, but they do keep acquiring stuff. 

According to one article,

"The average American moves 11.7 times in their lifetime. According to new Census data, nearly 31 million people moved in the United States in 2019. That's 9.8% of all Americans moving every year. Taking the average American household size of 2.3 people, this means 15.3 million American households move each year."

Which means quite a bit of junk that has to be gotten rid of each year!
