Declutter Your East Bay Home

When was the last time you went visiting to a friend’s home and declared to them “I love what you’ve done with the place?” Aren’t you really saying “Gee, I wish my house looked this clean?” Perhaps in this instance a little envy could be the perfect motivator to help you finally tackle that big decluttering job you’ve been meaning to get around to in your own home. Even if you have good intentions of planning a housecleaning project on a Monday by the time Saturday rolls around you’re probably too exhausted to even think about sorting through all that junk in your closets, garages or attic. That’s why you need to have an additional motivator: schedule an appointment with Junk King Alameda.
Junk King Alameda is an East Bay company specializing in the removal of all kinds of bulky junk items from your home or office. It’s a simple concept; they have a team of professional movers equipped with a large truck capable of hauling off all your junk. You don’t have to worry about whether or not your junk is going to be recycled or dumped in a landfill. The Junk King is completely eco-friendly. They make it a priority to recycle as much of what they collect as possible. Let them worry about that. What you need to focus on is sorting through your junk. The moment you set the appointment the clock is ticking.
If there is a room in your home like the garage or attic that has become the primary clutter zone then you should begin the sorting process methodically. Start in one corner and make your way around the room clockwise. Any item, no matter what size, that you want to have Junk King take away: slap a Post-it note on it. Once you identified all those items then you’re ready to move onto the next room. It’s conceivable that with the Post-it note method you don’t really have to lift a finger.
This decluttering effort should also pertain to those areas which might be deemed “out of sight and out of mind.” That would be places like a closet, under bed or in cabinets. Here again you only have to worry about picking which items you want hauled away.
After the Junk King team has removed all your clutter you need to really readjust your attitude when it comes to bringing things into the home. Just imagine your front door is a kind of metal detector that will sound alarms every time you bring something into your house that should be thrown away. Of course, if you like collecting junk there is nothing wrong with scheduling an annual appointment with Junk King Alameda!

East Bay Refrigerator Disposal

School’s out which means the neighbors will soon be teeming with kids looking for things to do. Recently, a group of youngsters from East Bay took a bus trip up to Sacramento to champion a high-quality summer program for low-income neighborhoods. This is actually a very serious issue facing kids and is called the “summer slide.” A study has found that for kids who take the summer off from being engaged in learning tend to drift further away from developing the skills they’ll need when they return to school. This doesn’t mean that kids should stay in school year round (although some parents might like that!). Instead, they should be given the opportunity to enroll in programs that bring them structure and fun activity like sports, reading and field trips.
That’s just what those East Bay kids were doing as they toured the capital and got to ask lawmakers what their favorite summers were when they were kids. Everyone has a fond memory of vacations by the beach or up in the mountains. Maybe it was a cross country trip with the whole family packed into a RV. Whatever the memory, summer is definitely a time for kids to be outdoors engaged in all kinds of fun. The goal is to have a safe summer. Every 4th of July we’re reminded of the dangers of playing with fireworks with displays of department store mannequins getting blown up by firecrackers. However, there is another danger that could be found around neighborhoods in the form of abandoned refrigerators.
All it takes is one tragedy to release how crucial it is to properly dispose of your old refrigerators. Even putting an old fridge in your garage isn’t 100% full proof. There is simply no telling what kind of exploration a kid will get into over the summer. And don’t try saying, “Stay out of the garage.”  That’s just an open invitation to go there! The best course of action would be to hire a professional hauling company like Junk King to take away that refrigerator and dispose of it properly. Not only can you rest assured that you’re unused appliance won’t cause any harm; you’ll actually be in compliance with the law.
If you decide to keep that fridge then you either have to remove the door or padlock it. Taking off the door is easy but then you’ve got the door and the fridge sitting there collecting dust and rust. The padlock option is viable but the bigger question is why are you going to hold onto something that you’ll never use again? Do you really want to waste the storage space? One call and you can have the icebox taken away. And while you’re at it, you might also find several move large items worthy of the trash heap. Just because the junk haulers are taking away your fridge doesn’t mean they can’t also take away all your other trash!

Berkeley Hauling – Let the Pros Handle the Junk

A random sampling of Berkeley, CA happenings reveals a little bit of something for everyone.  Many students hang out on the lawn of the Berkeley campus, studying, chatting and planning their weekends.  Berkeley business owners prepare their various goods and services – from an eclectic mix of foods to various baubles that are targeted at incoming tourists.   The question is: what did you do with your week?
If you decided to kick back at home maybe you had the chance to take stock of exactly what condition your living space is in. Actually, we’re talking about available space, as in, how much do you have? Could it be that you’ve become overwhelmed and overcrowded with unwanted junk. Perhaps your Berkeley weekend activity could be a complete overhaul of your home, garage, attic and closets. Might not be as fun as a night out at some Berkeley bars, but you’ll be guaranteed a reward and that would be with all those new wide open spaces.
Let’s face it; the most common excuse for not getting rid of all your old junk is you don’t have the manpower or the transportation. That’s why you should think about tapping into a local Berkeley hauling crew like Junk King to help you get rid of all that junk.

What could be on your list of “junk that should be gone?” Are you holding onto some old bed frames that will never make it back to a bedroom?

Those are pretty big pieces to move around and that’s why you should bring in the pros to handle this score.
The other benefit from hiring professional movers is that they’ll have the trucks to haul this stuff away. What are your options? Break that ratty sofa down into a million pieces and haul it off one SUV trunk load at a time? Would you even know where to take this junk? You might be surprised at how far out of Berkeley you would have to go just to dump your trash. Is that how you really want to spend the weekend?
Instead, slap a post-it note on every item you want taken away and let the professional hauling crew do the rest. They’ll have your place cleared of junk in no time and you can get out to enjoy all that Berkeley, California has to offer.
