Getting Rid of Your Old Furniture is Now Easier than Ever with Junk King Atlanta



No matter where you got your couch from or what it is made of, at some point you’ll be faced with needing to remove it or get rid of it; and the easiest way to do that is by calling on Junk King North Atlanta to assist you every step of the way. 


If you’ve ever needed to remove a couch or sofa from your property, you likely know how much of a hassle the entire event can become. After all, you and the family got the couch into that backside room the first time—getting it back out should surely be no problem too, right?




Then comes a series of grunts, curses, sighs, and eventual admission of defeat. “There must be a better way!” You scream towards the gods—reenacting some poorly written commercial, which aired on local TV at 2 am ten years ago. 


Fortunately, you would be right, there is a better way for removing couches, sofas, love seats, and more—just look online for ‘sofa disposal near me’. Junk King services are known as being the number one rated junk hauling and trash removal service in North America, and such a distinction is backed by our commitment to taking everything and anything (except hazardous materials) in our removals.


If you are thinking about a sofa removal, give Junk King Atlanta North a call first and have the entire removal done in a fraction of the time and effort that it would have cost. Further, calling Junk King, ensures that you come away with the lowest possible furniture removal cost since Junk King never sneaks in hidden or additional fees. 



How Junk King Works and What It Will Cost You

Junk King junk removal services and hauling works by offering you two types of removal options and the lowest costs available. The first type of service they offer is called full-service, while the second type is called self-service. 


The full-service option offers the use of a big red Junk King truck (20% larger than the competitor’s truck at the same price), and full-service also comes with a professionally trained removal crew of two or more people to assist you.


In this way, with the larger truck and the additional hands, full-service is a greatly beneficial option, especially for difficult projects like the removal of a large sectional sofa from your home.

In comparison, the self-service option comes with a multi-day rental of a Junk King roll-away dumpster called a MINI. The Junk King MINI dumpsters have a smaller exterior size which makes them able to be dropped off in nearly any location including residential driveways.


At the same time, they also offer a 12-cubic yard interior, making the removal process easier for the client due to the MINI’s ability to hold both large appliances and furniture without issue. 


Junk King costs are also done differently than the competition. While competitors base their cost and rates on the end weight of the dumpster or truck—Junk King bases their pricing on the volume of the dumpster or truck. This means that with Junk King, you only pay for the space that you use, and there are never any additional or hidden fees.


For example, if you were to order a Junk King MINI and only filled it halfway, you could pay as little as $160 to have your junk removed, while ordering a full-service truck option and completely filling our truck (which can hold six full pickup beds worth of junk and trash) could come out to just under $600. Additionally, companies and small businesses have their own Junk King pricing options most times.




Junk King Furniture Removal Checklist



What Type of Furniture Does Junk King Remove?




Junk King North Atlanta takes any and all furniture. In fact, they take nearly everything, everything being just short of hazardous materials. Old couch removal, mattresses, broken furniture, appliances, and everyday trash and junk are all able to be hauled by Junk King.


Even furniture that is being removed due to an estate sale or a property cleanout can be taken and utilized by Junk King. (Not to mention Junk King’s ability to take down entire structures if they aren’t connected to a larger building.) They also are able to take both old TVs and electronics and the subsequent e-waste which comes from both.


Further, because of the large space of the Junk King trucks and MINIs, they are also able to take office furniture and furnishings too. We can remove almost all types of furniture, including couches, sofas, sofa beds, mattresses, chairs, tables, bookcases, cubicles, desks, file cabinets, boxes, armoires, and tool units. 


Chances are, if you got it in your home or business, we can get it out for you—as long as there are no hazardous waste materials. For example, removing an armoire that is filled with old clothes is no worry—but removing an armoire filled with paints or sprays would be more difficult.


This is because hazardous materials require specialized manners in which to recycle them, and those tools are usually only obtained by full-scale recycling facilities. Luckily, since hazardous waste materials are the only thing that Junk King will not haul—you don’t need to worry about if they’ll take your junk and trash.

That’s great news for you because of the environmentally-conscious steps that Junk King takes with each haul, and that’s great news for the local economy because items are consistently being regenerated and reused, and that cuts costs on resources that could be used in other ways. 


For example, old couch removal can be done in eco-friendly ways, thanks to the effort of Junk King. One of those ways is after Junk King obtains the couch (through either service), they spend the time to check if the item can be salvaged or broken down. If the couch (in this case) could be salvaged or repaired, it would be and then donated.


In this way, a large percentage of items are kept out of landfills, protecting the environment from potential toxins, while at the same time providing assistance to those people who may need it—and while most people could argue that a person doesn’t ‘need’ a couch or sofa, there are many other items which Junk King has recycled that are necessities, including clothes, mattresses, electronics, and more

Working for Junk King and What You Should Know


What is Junk King?


If you’ve ever seen the big red trucks of Junk King, you may have asked ‘what is the Junk King?’ Junk King is North America’s top-rated junk hauling and removal service. Founded in 2005, Junk King was created with a desire to do more for the average person while also prioritizing and minimizing their, and their client’s, eco-footprint. Junk King has even been recognized as the nation’s greenest junk removal service


Junk King approaches junk and trash differently than their competition, choosing to focus heavily on the client’s needs as much as recycling opportunities. Each location uses a series of main principles to create the best possible customer experience and the most efficient work possible for every individual client. In the case of Junk King Atlanta North (and its sister franchises Junk King Cobb County and Gwinnett County), this means providing two removal options for every job—which in turn, allows the client to pick the best service for their specific needs. 


The first option that every client has available for their use is called full-service. This is where those big red trucks come in handy. During a full-service job, the client is provided with a Junk King truck (which is 20% larger than the competitor’s sized at the same price), as well as being provided with a professionally trained removal crew (of usually two people although more can be present).


This moving crew is responsible for providing the best possible face-to-face customer experience, while also embodying the Junk King values as the ‘face’ of the company. Such values include the premise that when a person chooses to move with Junk King, they are choosing the most eco-friendly and easiest option available—which is why we say that when you choose Junk King for hauling and removal, your removal is as quick as 1, 2, 3—just point and the junk is gone (thanks to our crew of removal specialists). 




The second option that every client has available for their use is called self-service. Unlike the full-service option, the self-service doesn’t come with a truck or a team of professional movers, instead, the self-service provides the client with a roll-away dumpster (called a Junk King MINI) and after a few days (normally 3 to 7) it is collected by a driver and taken to the Junk King recycling hub facility.


The self-service option is not the best choice for everyone’s needs—but it can provide the client with the most amount of time possible at a fraction of the overall cost for removal from other companies. Furthermore, because the Junk King MINI is…well, mini, it fits into residential driveways and small areas which large roll-away dumpsters do not—this means that the drivers have an easier time during drop-off and pick up periods. 


Regardless of which option is chosen, the process after the truck or MINI is filled is the same. Junk King never bases any of their costs on the weight of the container, but rather all costs are created based on the volume of the container provided by them. This means that if a person were to order a MINI and only use half of the available 12-cubic yards, they would only pay for the space that they usednot the weight of, say, a refrigerator and multiple appliances.


This same premise is also used by the full-service option, and in the same manner; because the big red trucks can hold up to six pick up truck beds worth of stuff and junk, a client’s construction debris or mattress will only cost a fraction of the cost it might have with another company. Taking this approach with costs has made Junk King North Atlanta’s most affordable junk removal service.

The Benefits of Working for Junk King Atlanta

This is only possible because of the Junk King efforts made to create a company culture around responsible disposal options. After each load or haul the Junk King truck or MINI is delivered to the ‘recycling hub’—and it is here where complex items are broken down and processed into their most simplistic elements, packed, and shipped away to the correct recycling facilities. 


The Junk King company model heavily prioritizes at least 60% of all hauls being recycled, repurposed, or reused—and in order to keep that percentage high, every load is sorted and put into their best fitting piles. Sometimes this means having piles of donation items, landfill items, or complex items in need of processing.
