Don’t Sweat The Junk Removal This Summer In Chattanooga

We’ve passed the midway point for the summer but that doesn’t mean we’re out of the heat yet. The dog days of August are right around the corner. What are you going to do the beat the heat for the rest of the summer? One popular place is the interactive fountains at Coolidge Park. It’s hard to walk by there and seeing how much fun the kids are having and not want to dive in. Over at the Tennessee Aquarium things are always cool indoors. For the more adventurous type, there is always whitewater rafting down the Ocoee River. The last thing you want to do is drudgery work around the house. That doesn’t mean the work can’t get done; you just don’t have to do it. That’s true if you hire Junk King for your junk removal chore. They’ll do all the lifting and loading while you kick back and relax.

Don’t feel guilty about watching the Junk King crew remove all of  your junk. That’s what you’re hiring them for. After all, if you could move out those heavy objects, you would have by now. Instead, you only have to show the Junk King crew what you want removed and they’ll handle the rest. That includes sending them down the basement or up in the attic. No piece of junk is too heavy for the Junk King crew to handle.

When the team is done removing the clutter from inside your home, you can also set them to work outside. In no time, they’ll be able to remove any pile of lumber scraps, yard waste, auto parts or any rusty object that you want gone. Junk King is also going to work around your schedule and they’re not going to keep you waiting all day long.

Part of the Junk King junk removal service is making sure your junk is properly disposed off. This doesn’t mean dumping it all at a landfill. Instead, the crews will take care to see that if any of your rubbish can be recycled or donated, they will. There is no extra charge for these drop offs. Junk King is only going to charge you a flat rate that is based on how much space your junk is going to take up on the back of the truck. This is volume versus weight and that makes it a great deal.

Chattanooga Junk Hauling King

The title of reigning king in the Chattanooga junk hauling business goes to Fred Friday. He’s the proud owner of an extremely busy Junk King franchise. As a professional junk hauler, Fred (or Mr. King, as his customers call him) has seen all kinds of debris. Since he began operations, he has hauled away true treasures and plenty of rubbish. On the “treasure” side, Fred took away an Edison Dictaphone, new appliances still in the box, clothes with the tags and working computers. Some folks just can’t be bothered with the junk removal and that’s fine with Fred.

“If you can sell it; great. If you can donate it; great. If you can’t, then call us,” Friday says.

When called into action, Fred and his team are never sure what to expect. A job can mean hauling away a single sofa or an office full of equipment. Real Estate agents like Mary Sanders have found that Fred’s Junk King to be a very valuable asset. Recently, she hired Fred to help with a seller who needed to clear out 30 years of accumulate stuff. “She was overwhelmed, and didn’t know what to do,” Sanders says. “Fred and his crew were wonderful. They reduced her stress level and helped to get her house ready for sale.”

This is actually a second career for Fred. He spent 30 plus years working at Olan Mills. When his job was phased out, Fred wasn’t ready to retire. He visited the California based home company of Junk King and liked what he saw. Once he signed up for the franchise, he’s been keeping busy.

Fred also appreciates Junk King’s eco-friendly disposal policy. This means if an item can be recycled, it will be at no extra charge. “We’ll strip the rubber and cloth off of a mattress, and take the metal out. We also recycle cardboard in large quantities.” That’s the kind of recycling work that will reduce the strain on area landfills and that’s a huge benefit to all of Chattanooga.

Fred approaches each job like it’s a treasure hunt. For the things that hold value, Fred keeps them in storage. Of course, the response to his team’s work is also extremely rewarding. “I love seeing how thrilled people are once we’re done,” he says. “I love hearing someone say, ‘Wow! This is great! I can walk into my storeroom,’ or, ‘I can get my car in my garage!’” I
