Is your Fridge Running …?

Is your fridge running?…Yes… Well you better go catch it! ha-ha lousy jokes aside, Is it time to get rid of the old Fridge? Well we will be happy to come remove your old refrigerator or freezer! Expect a good price, excellent service, and we will recycle it for you. But first, let’s make sure the old fridge really is a goner. Follow these five simple steps:

1. Check the plug and circuit box to make sure your fridge is getting power.

2. Check the thermostat to make sure you didn’t accidentally bump it into the off position.

3. Make sure the vents in the back of the fridge or freezer aren’t blocked.

4. Ensure your condenser coils—at the back of, or underneath your fridge—are clean. You can use a coil brush or a vacuum to clean the coils.

5. Ensure that the condenser fan spins freely. If your condenser coils are on the back of your fridge, you won’t have a fan.

If the fan doesn’t turn, unplug fridge try to clean the fan blades. Then plug in the fridge and watch to make sure that the fan spins when the compressor turns on. If the fan doesn’t spin, you need to replace it. The parts run from $7 to $30 for most models.

If your fridge is still not working it may be time to buy a new one.  Some stores provide free delivery and haul away—score! If the store tells you the haul-away fee is greater than $89, then you owe it to yourself to call Junk King Atlanta for a free estimate.

Atlanta Appliance Disposal

Just outside of Atlanta is the wonderful little community of Johns Creek. In an effort to provide ongoing services for its residents, Johns Creek is sponsoring a bulky recycling day. On this single day at the Medlock Bridge shopping center from 9 AM to 2 PM residents are encouraged to “get rid of clutter and help a good cause at the same time by bringing their used furniture, appliances and other large household items.” They will also provide a commercial document shredder to help get rid of any kind of sensitive files.

While this sounds like a good idea on paper there are many caveats to this recycling day. Top of the list is that the items you can drop off have to be in good shape only. That’s because they intend to donate everything to the Atlanta Furniture Bank. While that certainly is nice it really doesn’t address the issue of getting rid of your junk. After all, if you have something in good shape why would you want to get rid of it?

Then there is the practical matter of how you can load up something like an old refrigerator, washer or dryer into the back of your car for the drop off. Even removing the smallest of those items is going to be a two-man operation. That operation will also require renting a cargo van or moving truck. Then there is the limiting timeframe to concern yourself with. When was the last Saturday morning when you had free time on your hands? To sum up: you need to be getting rid of something that still in good shape, have a moving crew plus a big enough truck and live in Johns Creek. For the rest of Atlanta’s residents a smarter alternative for disposing of appliances would be to hire Junk King Atlanta’s professional junk haulers to accomplish the task.

These pro junk haulers will show up at your home on your schedule. Maybe that means after work on Tuesday. Maybe that means late Saturday afternoon. Maybe that means first thing Monday morning. The bottom line is that it’s on your schedule. The same professional junk haulers will also be arriving with a big enough truck to take away anything you want to get rid of. There’ll be no question about whether or not it will fit. And of course they’ll have the right amount of manpower to accomplish the task. While you might know to “lift with the legs and not your back” you really won’t have to worry about that because they’ll be doing all the lifting.

Just because you’re getting rid of some old appliances doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of this appointment to get rid of any of your other junk. In fact this is a perfect time to clear out the clutter from your garage, attic or basement. And this idea works for everyone in Atlanta!
