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!

Alternatives to Alameda Dumpster Rentals

You can really tell a town’s priorities by the type of festivals it holds. For some places, music tops the list of things to do on a warm weekend as jazz or bluegrass festivals pop up. Other communities like to show off their creative types by offering up art fairs. Here in Alameda, some local organizers know just what pleases the residents: Food trucks. That’s why they are holding another in a series of food truck festivals at the Alameda Fairgrounds. During this foodie fest, over 20 varieties of mobile chefs will be offering up their culinary treats to the masses. With all the trucks to choose from, how can you pick just one?
In order to put together an even like the Gourmet Food Truck Festival organizers have to take into account certain logistical details. The big three priorities are parking, bathrooms and trash removal. Of those three it’s probably the trash removal that is the easiest. All they need to do is rent a bunch of dumpsters from some reliable companies and make sure they will be dropped off and picked up on schedule.
Of course if you have a big trash removal job of your own you can also rent a dumpster but there is a better alternative. That would be hiring a professional crew of junk haulers like Junk King Alameda to show up and take your trash away in one trip.
It seems logical that if you have know in advance that you have a lot of garbage to get rid of to want to throw it out into a rented dumpster. What you have to consider is exactly where will you put that dumpster? If you have a driveway then you might be able to slip it in there but that will mean you’ll be parking on the street for the duration of the clean up. Having a dumpster placed on the street makes sense but there might be some Alameda city ordinances that require you to get a special permit for parking a dumpster on the street even if it is just for one day. Suddenly, what seemed like a simple idea is now getting very complicated.
Now consider that alternative suggestion of hiring professional junk haulers. You know just what you want taken away. It might be all the refuse from a major house cleaning or some construction waste from a remodeling job. Whatever that pile of junk becomes, the experience crew of junk haulers can show up at the appointed hour, load the trash into their truck and drive it away. You’ll barely remember you had it in the first place.
The other benefit of avoiding a dumpster is that you’re removing a potential target from trash pickers. A fully loaded dumpster might prove to be too tempting to the bottle collectors in your neighborhood. Do you really want them rummaging around in your trash? Cut to the chase and hire the pros, Junk King Alameda: They won’t let you down.

Appliance Buying Guide (And How to Get Rid of Old Appliances in Alameda)

If you’re tired of dealing with the same kitchen appliances that aren’t performing up to standard then it’s time you replace them. As you embark on your appliance shopping excursion, you’ll want to do a bit of considering first. Although you might think it’s simple to just swap one stove for another or trade an old refrigerator for a new one you actually have the opportunity to make some smart choices that can have a great impact on your energy bills and the way you use your kitchen.
First of all, size does matter. Make sure you take complete measurements of the appliances you plan on replacing. If it has been a while since you’ve bought new appliances you might find that the standard sizes have changed. The last thing you want to do is buy a stove that isn’t going to fit in the space between your cabinets. Take plenty of notes when you’re making you measurements. Get all the dimensions right and you shouldn’t have any problem finding the perfect fit!
Obviously, cost is going to be a factor for your purchase but it shouldn’t be a deterrent. You should check with the rebate fund that is being offered by the state for replacement of certain kitchen appliances. If you are trading in an old energy waster for a new Energy Star rated device you could be in for a rebate. Other than that you could also consider some financing deals being offered by the appliance store of your choice. These are big ticket items so the stores are eager to make a deal. You also have to think about the life of the appliance. Suppose you are buying a new refrigerator in the $800 range. If that fridge lasts 8 years (and why shouldn’t it?) you’re really paying a $100 a year which breaks down to pennies a day. That’s a pretty good deal for a brand new appliance!
Part of the cost to consider is also the warranties. A good thing to consider about warranties is the overall replacement cost. If you’re spending $100 on a DVD player and the warranty is $75 additional it’s probably better to skip the warranty and just buy a new player. The additional warranty only kicks in after the manufacturer’s warranty. Hopefully, you’ll discover if something is wrong within that period. Otherwise, on the more expensive appliances that you want to keep running properly, a warranty could be a good way to go.
Then there are all the “bells and whistles” to consider. If you’ve been working with old appliances then you’re going to be in for a real treat when it comes to all the programmable features and time saving devices that are incorporated into stoves, washing machines and dishwashers. Yes, everyone has gone high-tech and that’s a good thing!
Once you’ve picked out your new appliances make sure you arrange to get rid of the old ones by hiring a professional team of junk haulers that are local like Junk King Alameda. They’ll be able to take away your old appliances on the same day as the new ones arrive without skipping a beat!

As you walk around your East Bay home or apartment you could probably identify a handful of items destined for removal. This could be worn out furniture like an old sofa, love seat or end table. It could also be an old mattress that was shoved in the basement or garage that has become home to some nasty bugs. What about a discarded kitchen appliance like a broken stove or dishwasher? Sure, you have a new model in the kitchen now, but that old one might have been shoved out to the backyard and is now just collecting rust.
The big items are easy to pick out, but look closer. What’s crammed in those closets or under beds or in attics? There could be boxes of old papers, magazines or files you no longer need. What about all those arts and craft projects that you’re never going to get around to finishing? Speaking of unfinished projects, do you live with a car tinkerer? How many scattered engine parts, bumpers, rims and tires have they accumulated over the years? Yes, all of that can be gone with one simple call to Junk King Alameda.
