Chicago Dumpster Rentals vs. Junk Pick Up

If you have a garage that is overflowing with rubbish or a basement stacked to the rafters with junk, then you might think your cleanup solution can be had with a dumpster rental. What could be easier than having a dumpster in your driveway? Actually, you might find that hiring a professional junk pick up company like Junk King could get the same job done with a lot less hassle.

The first thing you have to consider with a dumpster rental is where you’re going to put that container. You can have it placed on your driveway but then that means keeping your car on the street for several days. The minimum rental for a dumpster is at least three days. If the dumpster is bigger, it might have to be place on the street outside your home. You’ll have to coordinate the drop off and pick up to make sure the dumpster service truck has at least 60 feet of clearance. Also, street placement could require a special permit from the city. You don’t have to be a contractor to get that permit but it’s still an extra step.


With a Junk King junk pick up, your stuff is removed in a single appointment. In, out and over. Junk King will provide a two-man crew to do all the actual work. You just show that crew what you want removed and they’ll take it from there. With a dumpster rental, you have to do all the labor of getting the stuff from your home into the container. That might work for a few boxes but with the heavy stuff like furniture, you’ll have to bring in some extra help.

There are certain other restrictions with a dumpster rental. You can only fill up the dumpster to just below the rim. If it happens that you’ve got more junk to throw out, you’ll have to get another dumpster. Junk King will take away everything you’re throwing out regardless of the weight or amount. They’ll have a moving truck that is bigger than any dumpster.

Finally, when you hire Junk King for your junk pick up, you’ll only be getting rid of your junk. Put a dumpster on the street and watch how fast it will fill up with everybody else’s trash. A junk pick up doesn’t have to be complicated when you hire Junk King from the start.

“Pleasant, price was right. Very professional. Clean, polite and very nice. I would certainly recommend Junk King to anyone that could use their services. Also, the first person I talked with Debbie was a big help and an asset to the company.”

Clearly, the common theme here is a 10 out of 10 rating. Those are mighty impressive numbers to be sure. As you can see by the reviews, customers not only appreciate the courteousness of the crews, but they also place value on a prompt response.

When you’re ready to clear out all the clutter from your home and yards, then its clear a junk removal appointment with Junk King is the best deal in town.
