Chicago Storm Debris Removal

When a storm causes a power outage, it is usually because a tree has brought down power lines. In fact, a single down tree can knock out power for thousands. That is what happened recently when a wave of storms rolled through Chicago knocking out power for 113,000 residents. Municipal crews have to scramble to first remove the fallen tree and then get the power lines restrung. Meanwhile, you’ve got food spoiling in your fridge. It’s the perfect time for a feast!

Not every tree that falls down in a storm causes a power outage but they can still cause a major headache in terms of cleanup. That’s why you want to keep the number for a company like Junk King handy. They are the perfect partners for any type of storm debris removal. The Junk King crews will swoop into action to remove those fallen tree branches and make sure your yards are clear. If you’re trimming trees in anticipation of the next big storm, then Junk King can prove to be an asset there as well. They’ll load up all that wood in a single trip.

Remember that not all storm debris removal has to do with trees. In some cases, a basement can get flooded. When that happens it is essential to move fast before the water logged carpets or furniture can sprout mold. You might be able to pull those things out of your basement and onto the lawn for pick up. However, with Junk King on the job, you won’t even have to do that. Just tell them what you want taken away and they’ll do the rest.

Beyond the storm debris removal, Junk King is standing by throughout the year to help you with your general decluttering needs. The moment you’ve decided to clear out the junk from your home is the moment you should call Junk King. Most of the junk removal appointments are completed within 24 hours. You might also benefit from same-day service. Chances are that no matter what day it is or where you live there will be a Junk King crew close by!

As for pricing, you’ll be charged a flat fee based on how much space your junk will take up on the back of the Junk King truck. The crew will provide that estimate once they size up what you want removed. It’s a price that won’t change. For fast storm debris removal and general junk cleanup, Junk King is the only call you should make.
