Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween! Junk-King Austin wants to help you stay safe this year. We have provided some safety tips to protect you and your loved ones:

  • Popular trick-or-treat hours are between 5:30pm and 9:30pm. Be sure to drive extra slow during that time. 
  • Add reflective tape to trick-or-treat bags and costumes to add visibility.
  • Giving children flashlight or glow sticks will help drivers identify the potential danger.
  • Teach your child to make eye contact with drivers before crossing the street.

We hope you have a wonderful holiday!

Junk-King Austin is also there to help you clean up post-celebration. We will haul off old costumes and unwanted decorations. While we’re there, we can even de-clutter the rest of your home!

Fall Yard Clean Up

Fall comes with a lot of extra yard waste. From pumpkins to hay bales, rotting firewood to pruned branches, it can be a chore to figure out what to do with all of it. No one wants it cluttering their yard or rotting on their doorsteps (looking at you, Jack-O-Lanterns). What’s the easiest way to get rid of this natural fall waste?

Calling Junk-King Austin! We will come to your house and take care of your fall yard clean up. We will save you time, so you can relax or enjoy your loved ones. We also save your back – no need to bend or lift, let our team handle it.

When you call Junk-King Austin, you won’t have to waste another minute thinking of cleaning up. We will haul off whatever you want, and we even clean up after ourselves. If you need more than just yard waste removed, rest assured we can take care of it while we’re there. We clean out garages, attics, basements, closets, homes, garden sheds, storage units, and businesses. We haul off yard waste, boxes, furniture, clutter, clothes, small appliances, large appliances, and more. Junk-King Austin also donates or recycles up to 60% of what we pick up.

Seasonal Decorations

Many of us enjoy decorating our homes and yards with appropriate seasonal items. As the years go by, however, sometimes our tastes change and we no longer like those same decorative pieces we used to. Some of us even cease decorating all together.

Whatever the reason or season, Junk-King Austin wants to give you back space in your attic, garage or home. We will pick up those old seasonal decorations you no longer want, along with any other items you no longer need.

Whether you need more space to stockpile Christmas gifts, to free up a room to host guests, or if you just want to simplify your home, Junk-King Austin has you covered. We don’t limit ourselves to just storage spaces like basements, closets, garages, attics, and storage sheds. We also clean out homes, pick up yard waste, and remove items from businesses.

Purge Your Wardrobe

Fall is in the air. Temperatures are dropping with the leaves – albeit slowly here in central Texas. As we leave summer (hopefully) behind, it has become time to switch out our clothing options. While sifting through your entire wardrobe, it only makes sense to get rid of excess clothing. Junk-King Austin has some tips to help you purge your wardrobe!

  • Have you worn it in the last year?
  • Does it still fit?
  • Does it flatter your body type and skin tone?
  • Are you prioritizing a staple piece or an every-changing ‘trendy’ piece?

Parting with possessions in the home is something most people desire, but a task in which they often find themselves overwhelmed. Let Junk-King Austin help you regain control of your living space. We will take care of more than just your discarded clothes. We clean out attics, garages, basements, sheds, storage spaces, and businesses – all while donating or recycling up to 60% of what we collect.

Simplifying Your Home

‘Simplicity’ is a commonly used but highly elusive word. In today’s world, it seems that ‘simplicity’ indicates the bare minimum. Simplifying your home, by this definition, can seem overwhelming and a little unwelcoming – no one likes to think of getting rid of everything they own.

Far from living in an empty house, simplicity can be about keeping what is frequently used, what is important. In our homes, it is easy to amass objects we no longer use or need – objects we may have even forgotten about! This extra junk contributes to a feeling of chaos and the sensation that our lives are out of our control. How do we decide what to keep? Ask yourself these questions:

  • Has this been used in the last year?
  • Does this still fit anyone in the house?
  • If you were forced to move suddenly, would you take this or leave it?
  • Is this adding any real value to my life?
  • Do I truly need this?
  • Is this object worth the space it’s taking up? Or could that space be better used for something else?

Junk-King Austin wants to help you simplify your life. We clean out rooms, remove furniture, haul off yard waste, empty garages, go through attics, take out your broken or unwanted hot tubs and large appliances, simplify closets, return space to your sheds, lift your work out equipment, and free your storage unit or business from clutter.
