The last thing you want to do when it comes to getting rid of something is to drag it out of the house or yard. Dragging implies that the object you are attempting to get rid of is exceptionally heavy. Anytime you drag an object like that is always a chance of causing damage to the surface you are dragging it across.

That is a task that perfectly describes what happens when you hire Junk King Atlanta. These are the professionals who take the best approach for junk hauling in the area.

That flat rate is always determine by how the truck gets backed up. The less room that your stuff takes up, the less you will be paying. You will know exactly what that prices for the work begins.

The Best Furniture Removal Service in the North Atlanta Area


atlanta furniture removal

Updated on 3/13/22


As of 2020, the average person spent about $535 on furniture. This means that an entire household could spend well into the thousands on their furniture if they choose to buy multiple pieces at once; and, since the average household buys between 1 and 8 pieces per year, it is a safe bet to say that a few thousand dollars are spent every year on furniture alone. Further, it’s a safe bet to say that if the furniture is going into a house, something must come out to make space for it. Sometimes what comes out is junk or trash, but other times it’s more furniture. 


The next time you think about furniture removal, remember to call Junk King first. Junk King removal services are your one-stop-shop for every removal solution, from construction debris to furniture and everything in-between. Read on to learn more about the services that Junk King provides, and remember that when you choose to move with Junk King, removal is as simple as 1, 2, 3—just point and the junk is gone.


Instead of simply disposing of old furniture by calling someone to take them to the local landfill, hiring a junk removal service is a great way to limit your environmental footprint while also effortlessly making room for new furniture in your home. Junk-King Atlanta North offers fast, efficient, and eco-friendly junk removal for the northern part of Atlanta.

The Problems with Disposing of Furniture in the North Atlanta Area



Atlanta furniture removal



Based on the statistics above, it is reasonable to say that with an increase in furniture purchasing, there is also an increase in furniture disposal, at least partially. Furniture disposal and removal is a tricky business because it involves labor, recycling/landfills, and a costly price tag for the furniture owner. Additionally, it also comes with the cost of potentially harmful elements contaminating the local environment and animals. 


To begin with, furniture removal and disposal are very costly in terms of labor for the average person. Regardless of the size or weight of the furniture, energy must be expended in order to even move most furniture. This seems like a simple or small cost since humans are supposedly built to move—moving a piece of furniture should be little to no task, especially when multiple people are assisting.


Unfortunately, however, this is not the case; moving furniture can take a large toll on our bodies when it is done incorrectly. Injuries at home are often obtained through the moving of furniture and incorrect lifting techniques, which can result in lasting pains both bodily and monetarily.


Not to mention the problems that come with having an employee do the heavy lifting at work—business owners often are paying double the amount they would have paid hiring professional removers, and this is because they are paying their employee twice: once for the workday and again for the loss of production. 


Further, the price tag for furniture removal is consistently gaining cost beyond just the individual owner themselves and the possible injuries that could occur. Choosing to remove furniture yourself means that you’ve also chosen to handle the disposal of the furniture yourself.


At first, this may not seem as if this was a big deal or something worth worrying about—after all, you can simply take it to the landfill and pay for it to be taken out of your hands. However, what actually happens, is the already large cost of disposal from the landfill is as much as doubled; this is because you not only pay for the disposal, you also pay for the labor of those who have helped you, while also paying for the gas of the vehicles used to take the furniture to the landfill.


Additionally, there are further costs associated with the proper disposal of your furniture, which can incur even more costs. For example, if you were to take the furniture to a recycling center over the landfill, the costs associated with the landfill would drop to zero as well as the environmental impact of the furniture—but there would still be an additional cost to you because the recycling center will charge a fee to take the furniture and process it. 


There are large costs that come with furniture removal and disposal; most people don’t consider these costs when they purchase furniture for their home, so a significant portion of people suffer through these unforeseen costs.


Instead of choosing to remove your furniture by yourself, choose to move with Junk King instead. As a professional removal team, Junk King is equipped with everything that a removal might require, from equipment to break down large pieces to the ability to recycle almost everything that is hauled.

Reuse or Recycle: Options for Sustainably Disposing of Used Furniture


Sustainability and recycling are two of the biggest concerns of Junk King. We believe that everything that can be recycled, should be—and that belief is what makes us the greenest removal service in North America. While other removal companies claim to help the environment while dropping entire loads into landfills, Junk King hauling is done with the final destination of the junk in mind.


This means that while our professional removers take away objects, they are considering the next life stage of the junk. Sometimes this next life stage can be the landfill, but only when no other option is available, and for furniture, the final destination is rarely the landfill. This is because furniture has a unique ability to be updated, fixed, recycled, and even processed into other furniture. 


According to the Environmental Protection Agency, over 80 percent of furniture and furnishings were landfilled in 2018. This is a shocking statistic because despite the large role that furniture plays in our lives, furniture turns out to be the number one least recycled item within our homes. Even if we were to break down the smallest of our furniture, more than 90% is likely able to be recycled and processed into new items or revamped into new furniture.


Part of the desire to not recycle furniture comes from the idea that ‘no one would want’ parts of another person’s furniture. After all, no one really knows what goes on in each other’s houses—so most people are more comfortable simply throwing away their furniture instead of recycling it or donating it.


Additionally, the same can be said about things like mattresses—though they are very good at being processed and recycled, only a fraction of them actually are. This is likely because of the same old notions of ‘not knowing where that thing has been’. 


Despite these old ideas (and their sometimes truths), it is more important than ever  to take the time to consider your options for reuse and recyclability for your furniture.  Junk King North Atlanta owner, Harry Van Buren, has spoken about the importance of recycling everything that we can for the future of humanity: 


You know, you hear a lot of different experts [approximating the amount of stuff the world can hold] in terms of the amount of people. You can hear anything from 10 billion to 15 billion. But the rate that the population is exploding, we’re not too far away from 10 billion people, we’re not.


And if we don’t start thinking more about recycling, donating, repurposing, [we’re] to the point where, if we don’t reuse the resources [we have], they’re going to be gone. So that’s how important our business is to the survival of the species. It really, truly is a survival of the species business.

How To Take Care Of Construction Cleanup

Anyone who is in charge of reconstruction project has to manage lot of details. The most important are hiring skilled workers to complete the project and providing them with the necessary materials and tools to get the job done. There are also other details about that project that have to be worked out by the contractor as well. Among that list is handling the construction cleanup. Even on a small project like a home remodel there is still the need for a cleanup that has to be taken care of in order to keep the site safe. Smart approach that many contractors take is to bring in outside help for this aspect of the project. Junk King Atlanta is a terrific option for construction cleanup on any size project.

No Slowdown

If a construction crew has to take time out to clean up all the debris, then that means less time on the actual building. Obviously, they can cleanup as they work by creating piles of trash but that trash still has to be removed at the end of the day. It also has to be disposed of and responsible manner. By hiring Junk King for this task there won’t be any slow down on the workday. The Junk King team can show up on the designated day and time and remove all the debris that needs to be cleared out. This can happen as frequently as needed.

On many construction jobs the demolition phase creates the most trash. That is why you might want to have the Junk King crew show up at the end of that first day to clear out the mess. Everything that you need to get cleared from a construction site can be loaded onto the Junk King truck. That truck can hold the equivalent of six pickup trucks with rubbish. That will provide plenty of room for whatever you need to clear out.

You can lockdown your construction cleanup appointments in advance so that you know it will always be taking care of.

The best approach for any level of construction cleanup remains turning that job over to Junk King Atlanta.

Is Your Old Appliance Older Than You Are?

Okay, so maybe it’s not that old, but if you’re like most people, you’ve probably got some ancient appliances still sitting in your house, your garage, or worse, your basement. 

Perhaps you still have that old washing machine that you held onto after replacing it with a newer model and it’s still in the garage or on the back porch. You’ve been meaning to get rid of it, but it hasn’t been on the top of your list of “Things to Do” recently and, well, time keeps going by.

While getting rid of a working appliance is easy – you can sell it, or at least donate it – moving, lifting, and hauling off a large appliance is not only difficult, but it can also be dangerous.

This is especially true for people who happen to live alone or are unable to manage something that large and heavy. For these folks, DIY appliance disposal really is not an option. 

Some retailers will take away your old appliance when you purchase a new one from them and have it delivered. But this isn’t always the case and then you have to figure out for yourself what to do with that old machine. 

And, without a large truck and some strong help, that’s a problem because appliances can be heavy.

How heavy?

Well, take the average large capacity washing machine, for example. These metal beasts can weigh over 220 pounds and a dryer typically weighs between 150-200 pounds, on average.

If you have a large, built-in microwave you also have an appliance that might weigh up to 100 pounds or more.

But the real “back-breakers” are large refrigerators!

When you consider that most side-by-side refrigerators can weigh between 240 and 340 pounds, it’s easy to see what removing and disposing of these massive machines isn’t really anyone’s idea of a do-it-yourself project.
