Chattanooga Furniture Pickup

A new wave of reality television programs are tapping into the interest of finding treasures around your home. This all started with the popular series “Antique Road Show.”  In that program, folks were invited to bring their heirlooms to a professional appraiser to see if they were worth anything. Today you can watch “Pawn Stars,” “Auction Hunter,” or “Hollywood Treasures.”  Sometimes the participants on these shows land a big score. That painting or piece of pottery they had hanging around their home actually turned out to be worth a bundle.

Sadly, for the rest of us, the “junk”  we have in our homes is just that: junk. Unless a piece of furniture has been passed down multiple generations, it’s a safe bet it’s not going to be worth much. It’s better to hire a professional  furniture pickup crew to take away that old stuff then wait for it to turn into a treasure.  If you live in the Chattanooga area, Junk King is your best bet.

We put our furniture through a lot work. Take the typical living room sofa. How many hours are spent relaxing on that sofa watching your favorite shows or following your hometown sports team? There is no way to avoid a spill or two on that sofa unless of course you wrapped it in plastic. Much like a mattress, a good couch should last around eight years. Imagine all the hours on that sofa, all the snacks, all the drinks, all the pets… that’s a lot traffic for one piece of furniture. That old sofa served your family well, but now it’s time to retire it. You could drag it out to the curb and hope it will disappear. Instead, the neighborhood dogs will be treating it as their new “deposit” post. If the sofa has to go, then call in a Chattanooga furniture pickup company like Junk King to haul it away.

You can hire that crew to take away the sofa and be done with it, but why stop there? Maybe there are some other big pieces of furniture that have seen better days. How is that recliner in the corner holding up? What about that kitchen chair that is being held together by duct tape? If you take the time to do a complete survey of your home furniture status you’ll be amazed at how much could be taken away by a crew of experienced haulers.

One of the great benefits of hiring a professional crew like Junk King Chattanooga to take away your old furniture is that you now have the perfect excuse to go out and buy new furniture! Some mattress companies offer removal of the old mattress because they want make sure you won’t have any excuses. Not many furniture companies offer the same deal. That’s why you need to get rid of your old furniture on your own. That’s easier said than done. Is your SUV big enough? Are you strong enough? Do you know where to dump it? A “no” answer to anyone of those questions just means it’s time to call in the Junk King’s professional furniture pickup team. Let them worry about taking your furniture away. You worry about picking out the new sofa!

Chattanooga Junk Hauling – Hire the Professionals

The thin line that separates a professional worker from an amateur worker is whether that person in question is getting paid or not. Look no further than the NFL versus College Football for a perfect example. Although the colleges are where all the NFL players come from, until they sign that contract those college players aren’t considered professional. Of course, just because you get paid for a job doesn’t always mean you’re going to be “professional” about carrying out that gig. However, there is one area where professionalism really matters and that’s with junk hauling. It all comes down to a simple question: who do you want to let in your Chattanooga home… a professional or an amateur?

Junk hauling is a pretty simple concept. You’ve got piles of useless garbage that need to be taken away. Back in the day, this meant loading up your own car or truck and heading out to the nearest landfill in the Chattanooga area. You were typically charged a fee to unload your garbage and that was the last you ever saw of that junk. Today, many people are trying to make landfills extinct by enacting recycling programs. This means there could be several different recycling facilities all around Chattanooga to handle all the tons of reusable materials generated every day. A professional junk hauler like Junk King Chattanooga is going to know right where those centers are located because they are all part of their daily routes. Do you want to spend your time searching these down, getting maps and loading up your own car? And forget about loading up your family’s car with junk; you just had it washed!

Another good reason to hire Junk King Chattanooga is that they’re going to be bringing along a crew who is experienced in moving junk. This will be a trained crew who is bonded and insured. Does that make a difference? What would happen if you went to your local Home Depot and hired a couple of day laborers to haul away your junk? Suppose one of those workers throws out his back because he wasn’t properly trained. Would you be held responsible? In our “lawsuit crazy” society, you just might be. When you hire a professional Chattanooga junk hauling crew you’ll be signing a contract which clearly states what and who you are responsible for. Chances are your only responsibility will be to point to what needs to be carried out. The rest will be up to the pros.

Speaking of that contract, when you utilize Junk King Chattanooga’s hauling services you will be given an up front estimate before any item is moved out of your home.  This is the price you will pay – there also won’t be any haggling with a professional company like Junk King. Their reputation is on the line with every job. If they don’t stay professional, they don’t stay in business. It’s just that simple.

Junk King Chattanooga will be ready to service your hauling needs in early 2011 – simply call 1-888-888-JUNK or book a free on site estimate online.
