Chattanooga Couch Pickup

old couch pickupThe Chattanooga Times has a cool weekly featured called “Get Off the Couch.” This is where they highlight all the great things you can do around the area provided you actually get off your couch. We’re talking about events like RiverRocks which was a huge gathering of 1,200 rowers in the Tennessee River. They also talked about the big Oktoberfest celebration being held at the Chattanooga Market. Yes, there is a whole world of fun out there beyond your living room. Of course, getting off the couch might also reveal the necessity of buying a new couch!

Next to our beds, our living room sofas get the most use. Unlike our beds, they also end up getting the most stains from spilled soda, cheesy snacks and puppy paw prints. What kind of shape is your sofa in? It is sagging in the middle? Are the springs popping up from the cushions? Has the fabric faded? If you answered “yes” to any one of those questions then it might be time to make the swap as in out with the old sofa and in with the new.

No doubt you’ve seen the occasional sofa set out on the curb. Sometimes this is done in frustration. What better way to convince someone to buy a new sofa then to drag the old sofa out of the house? Folks also put out sofas in the hope someone will drive by and pick it up. Of course, that would mean that person would be driving in a truck big enough to hold the sofa, would have a friend to help them load the sofa and got there before the sofa was ruined by the weather. That’s a lot to ask. If you’re ready to buy a new sofa then your best bet to get rid of the old sofa would be to hire Junk King Chattanooga.

Furniture Donations Pickup in Chattanooga

Sadly, like a lot of the rest of the country Chattanooga has seen its fair share of devastating storms. It feels like a year doesn’t go by without some flooding or tornado ripping through communities and leaving a path of destruction in their wake. Even when homes are destroyed and families are displaced there is still plenty to appreciate from living in Chattanooga. Top of the list would be the generous spirit that residents provide to their neighbors and total strangers. It’s not uncommon for donations to pour in after a storm. Those donations are provided to anyone in need, no questions asked. And as the “banks” of donations dwindle down they always have a way of being refilled just when the need is greatest. Junk King of Chattanooga understands this and that’s why they are dedicated to helping fill up the reserve of furniture donations by dropping off some of those items they pick up that might be worthy of more use.

Junk King has a long list of potential drop-off sites that are part of their daily routes. These include charities in the Chattanooga area that refurbish furniture. Whether it’s a worn out sofa, wobbly chair or banged up table there are many operations which have the trained staff which can convert those junk items into practical piece of furniture.

Maybe you’re throwing out a couch because it doesn’t match your new decor scheme or it’s just plain worn out. All it would take is some fresh upholstery to turn that sofa into a decent piece of furniture. That couch can then end up on the home of a family in need of a little help when it comes to providing a comfortable living space. By working with Junk King you’re furniture castoffs will have years more life in them. Best of all, you won’t have to exert any extra effort to help those in need: Junk King will handle the entire project from start to finish.

For all of those items, Junk King will make sure they are handled in the right manner. With Junk King Chattanooga on the job, you won’t have to worry about straining your back or sacrificing hours of your valuable time driving in search of a landfill.

Chattanooga Bulk Pickup

Buying in bulk is a fairly recent device that the average consumer uses to bring down their costs for groceries. The concept is simple: the more you buy of a particular item the lower the “per unit” cost is of that item. You might be buying more but you’ll be paying less in the long run. Of course, that might mean snagging a gallon of ketchup and a crate of hot dogs which will have you eating wieners with ketchup for days on end to make sure you finish them off before they go bad. Buying in bulk with non-perishable items can be a real cost savings.

The other type of bulk we might have in our lives are the bulky items meant for the trash heap. Because they are bulky they’re not going to fit into the garbage can. This would be things like old furniture, construction waste from a remodeling job, yard debris, mattresses and/or kitchen appliances. That’s the kind of bulk you don’t want to hang on to. To get rid of that here in Chattanooga you’re going to have to turn to the professionals as in Junk King Chattanooga.

Junk King makes hauling bulky items their business. They get this job done by dispatching an experienced crew to your home or business with a big ol’ truck standing by to be filled up. That Junk King crew will be working for you when it comes to the removal process. All you have to do is point out to them what you want taken away and they’ll do the rest. If it’s a heavy object let them do the lifting. If it needs to be brought up from the basement or down from the attic, let them do the climbing on the stairs. Bottom line: the Junk King crew is going to do all the work while you just sit back and watch your junk fly out the door.

Getting rid of bulky items means you’re going to be freeing up a lot of space around your home. There is a tendency with most folks to turn around and fill up that space with more junk. This is especially true if you’re clearing out closets to make room for more shoes or clothes. But if you’re serious about living without junk, then you could turn that open space into something more practical. There have been some folks who cleared out enough junk from a spare room to turn it into a home theater. Others have set up an office out in the garage. Even clearing out a corner in the basement where you can put a reading lamp and cozy chair is worth it. Look at it this way: when you bought your home it wasn’t to have some place to store junk. It was to be comfortable. Now you can get back to that cozy home with the help of Junk King Chattanooga.

Chattanooga Air Conditioner Disposal

Left to our own devices, we’d have garbage piled up on the curbs. Our rivers, streams and lakes would be a muddy mess and we wouldn’t be able to breathe fresh air. All of those things can be solved when our local government plays an active role in keeping things clean. Here in Chattanooga we have an Office of Sustainability. Never heard of that? You might not be alone in that regard but this is a government agency that is actually doing a lot of good for all the residents. Here is their official mission statement:

“The Office of Sustainability is responsible for guiding Chattanooga toward a sustainable economy, environment, and community. We call this the city’s triple bottom line. We approach our mission by developing the physical resources of the city, working with businesses who want to become sustainable enterprises, and promoting projects that save our taxpayers money. Since 2009, we have been collecting data, setting goals, and making recommendations for the City of Chattanooga and the region. The mission of the City of Chattanooga Office of Sustainability is to be a catalyst for innovation and sustainable decisions and actions within the City of Chattanooga government, Chattanooga communities, and the region.”

Very noble goals indeed. So how are they doing? A rundown of their “to-do” list finds that 350 Smart Street Lights have been installed. They’ve got about 25,000 more to go to complete this project. There have been 45 city wide energy audits conducted to see how things can be improved. Additionally, there have been 100 bike stations put up around the town to encourage more bike riders. Most importantly, this office has taken at least 59 suggestions for the residents and put them into action with regard to sustainability and energy savings.

Clearly, they are doing their part to keep Chattanooga clean and energy efficient. How about your own efforts? Are you doing your part? One of things everyone can do is to make sure their own energy use isn’t wasted. That would occur if we are using appliances that aren’t EnergyStar rated. In these dog days of summer, the one appliance that is getting a complete workout is the air conditioner. Is your AC ready for the junk heap? You can swap out your old model for a new design that could lower your monthly electric bills and reduce your carbon footprint.

The other side of that issue is to make sure your old air conditioner or any other type of large appliance is properly disposed of. You’ll be able to get that job done when you hire Junk King Chattanooga. Those are the professional junk haulers based here in Chattanooga who specialize in the removal of bulky items but they go a step further and make sure those items are handle the right way. This often means dropping off at one of the many recycling centers located around town. Get right with your appliances and make sure Junk King gets rid of them properly.

Chattanooga Grill Disposal and Recycling

Around Chattanooga folks take their barbequing very seriously. For many it comes down to a simple choice: Dry rub or marinade. With the dry rub, a combination of spices (often secret ingredients) is rubbed onto the meat of choice and then it is slow roasted, grilled or smoked. With the marinade option, it’s the same “secret recipes” but these are more sauce oriented. The best option is to soak the meat in the marinade of choice for several hours. In some cases even an entire 24 hour period. You’ll find passionate devotees on both sides of these BBQ equations.

There are also equally passionate opinions about the types of preferred grills. Again there are two basic choices: Propane or natural burning. Old school grilling consists of charcoal briquettes doused with light fluid then set ablaze. When the flames die down, the charcoal continues to burn bright and provide the heat source of for the BBQ. It’s that initial “flame up” that is cause for great concern and also the spark that has ignited many fires that got out of control. Some folks just can’t resist pouring heavy with that lighter fluid. Perhaps that’s why the propane grill grew in popularity.

With a propane grill you simply turn on the gas from a stored tank and spark up your grill much like you would turn on your stove top. The benefits of propane grilling are that it provides an even and consistent heat source. What might be lost is a distinct flavor found through smoking your BBQ with different types of wood chips. Actually, there are many propane BBQ grills can allow you to add wood chips for that smoky flavor. You can even put chips together in some aluminum foil, get them damp and create the same smoker effect when you close the hood of your BBQ. Keep in mind that smoking BBQ is not always about heating BBQ. The flavors infused into the meat come from the smoke of the wood not the flame.

No matter which type of BBQ method you prefer, you might discover as you head out for your first official BBQ of the summer that your grill is in bad shape. Even if you have kept that grill covered through the winter, it was still subjected to some harsh elements. If you weren’t as diligent with your “after grill” clean up then there might also be lots of charred gunk piled up on your grill which is certainly not appetizing. All of this means you could be in the market for a new grill. Don’t let getting rid of the old grill stand in your way. Hire a team of professional junk haulers like Junk King Chattanooga to take away that old grill and you’ll have plenty of room for you new model. Those same junk haulers can also make quick work of any other stuff you want taken away. This makes buying a new grill the perfect excuse to get rid of all your junk. That’s a winning scenario in anybody’s book!

Chattanooga Apartment Junk Hauling

Thanks to the burst housing bubble, the real estate pendulum has swung away from homeowners and back towards apartment renters. This means that apartment space is at a premium and rent prices are ticking up. If you’ve got an apartment you’re happy with then hold onto it! Maybe your apartment isn’t all it should be. Are you feeling too crowded? The real problem could be summed up in a single word: Junk. You don’t have to be a homeowner to have a lot of junk. Apartment residents can be hanging onto just as much useless stuff; you’ll just notice it a lot more in an apartment!

In some cases, folks living in apartments have actually made the move from a bigger home to a smaller, more manageable space. Unfortunately, they’ve brought all their stuff with them. In another example, a person could be renting a two bedroom place and turned that second bedroom into their own private storage locker. In either case, that’s not a good use of the space. The obvious solution is to get rid of all that junk and you can tackle that project with the help of a team of professional junk haulers like Junk King Chattanooga.

Professional junk haulers will often show up for the job in pairs. This means moving any bulky item won’t be a problem. Apartments also come with stairs. Again, this isn’t a problem for the professional junk hauling crew like Junk King. They’ll do all the heavy lifting and the stair climbing!

Clearing out the clutter in an apartment could free up space that you’ll be able to use for more practical purposes. Get rid of that old loveseat and you can make room for a desk for study or a home office. Swap out that huge dining room table for a smaller version and you’ve got room for a china cabinet. The best apartments come with storage space but here too you might be overwhelmed with junk. Whether it’s a compartment in the garage or a single bedroom closet, you don’t want it overflowing every time you open the door. The same useful principle applies. In other words, if you’re not using it then it’s not worth hanging onto.

When the junk is cleared from your apartment, you can look at that space with fresh eyes. If you’ve been a good tenant then your landlord might not object to having you make some cosmetic improvements like a new paint job. Instead of going with the traditional (and often boring) white shade, perhaps you can think outside of the box with some bolder colors for your rooms. A key search of the internet can fill you up with plenty of inspiration to turn a drab apartment into a cozier environment. Here’s the bottom line: If it makes sense for you to live as a renter as opposed to an owner that doesn’t mean have to live with junk!

Home Downsizing Tips in Chattanooga

The idea of downsizing is gaining in popularity all across the country, including in Chattanooga, for a variety of reasons. Top among them is the idea that moving into a smaller home or apartment is more affordable. But there is also the quality of life issue to consider. As we get older, taking care of a large home becomes a bit more burdensome. This is especially true if all the kids have moved on and you’re left alone in a big empty house. In that case, downsizing makes perfect sense.

How much time do you devote each week to keeping your home clean? Now imagine that time is cut in half by living in a place without so many rooms. And we’re just talking about the typical dusting, sweeping and wiping down of counters. With the big spring cleaning projects you have windows to wash, drapes to clean, gutters to clear out… the list is endless. It doesn’t have to be that way if you make the decision to downsize. You’ll be able to have more time to dedicate to being with friends or your hobbies.

Then there is the money to think about. If you’re living in a home that is all paid for then consider yourself lucky! If you were to sell that home you’d have a very decent amount of money to retire on. Why wait? Moving into a smaller place will also cut back on electric, water and heating bills. That’s going to put even more money in your pocket. How would you like to spend that? Spoil the grandkids? A cruise? There are a lot of possibilities!

Finally, as we get older we often find it’s a bit harder to get around. You could relocate to a place without stairs and easy access to all kinds of shops, cafes and friendly neighbors all within walking distance.

Downsizing doesn’t have to overwhelm you, especially when you hire a team of professional junk haulers like Junk King Chattanooga to help with the process. These junk haulers will be able to haul out all of your unwanted stuff without you having to lift a finger. Even if you’re staying put, it’s still a great idea to bring in a professional team to help you clear out the clutter. These qualified junk haulers will have the right amount of heavy lifting experience and empty truck space to take care of anything you want tossed out. They’ll be able to sweep through your garage, basement or attic and carry out furniture, big kitchen appliances and any other bulky item that you can toss out in the garbage.

Yes, a home where a family grew up in has a lot of memories but you’ll be taking those memories with you wherever you go. The idea is for you to live a more stress free life and that can happen with downsizing.

Declutter Your Chattanooga Home

Do you dread coming home at the end of every workday? Not because of who you might be living with but because of the mess that you are surrounded by. You’re not alone. Many folks find that with a busy schedule it’s all they can do to get dinner on the table and attend to the needs of their family before collapsing in bed at the end of a busy day. This is when things like decluttering your home go right out the window! If you’re frustrated with the amount of clutter you’re surrounded by here are some helpful hints towards changing that situation and creating a clutter free living environment.
The first thing you need to accept is the fact that a lot of this clutter is going to end up being junk you can throw away. If you schedule an appointment with Junk King Chattanooga to send one of their crews out to your home then you will have a specific target date in mind when it comes to getting rid of all that junk. For instance, if you make the appointment with Junk King for the following Saturday then this weekend will be the perfect time for you to decide which junk items you’re going to throw out.
Setting a deadline that you have to adhere to is a great way to jumpstart your decluttering. What you don’t want to get into is a situation where you’re simply moving your junk from one room to another. That might work if you have company coming over but ultimately it’s just going to end up bogging you down even more. Again it goes back to this issue of accepting that you’ll be throwing this junk out.
With regard to determining whether or not you should throw something out, you need to think in terms of practicality or sentimentality. Nobody would ask you to get rid of something that holds sentimental value but could you make that claim for an old sofa or mattress? What about a computer you no longer use? Is that really sentimental? Over the years you might have found that storing items in boxes is a way to keep your junk organized. While that may be true in certain circumstances you have to ask yourself how many boxes you now have full of stuff you haven’t sorted through? Are you being overrun by boxes? Here’s where the Junk King crew can also be of service. Not only will they be able to move those large bulky items but they can pretty much take away anything you wanted to whether it’s boxed up or just gathered in a pile.
The moment your home has become decluttered it won’t take much effort to keep it that way. Just get in the habit of asking yourself “why am I keeping this?” Unless you have a good answer that item whatever it is needs to be thrown out.
