Start Your Basement Remodel With A Call To Junk King

This is the perfect time of year to start a remodel project. Any project that begins in the next days could mean completion right before the holidays. That would be a terrific way to show off your new finished basement. Often, the basement is the last project in a home that becomes renovated. If a family moves into an unfinished basement, then they get used to not utilizing that space. However, once it has been remodeled it becomes a terrific extension of the living space of that home. This process should start with a call to Junk King Chicago. One session with these professional junk haulers and your basement will be cleared of all unnecessary rubbish and debris. That will make the remodeling project go a lot smoother.

Nothing Scary

A basement is a popular destination in horror movies. If something scary is going to happen, then it will start in the basement! Your basement might not be technically scary but it could be overwhelmed with clutter and rubbish. That would make it a place that no one in the family wants to go to. For your Junk King session, you will be assigned to strong movers who will be doing all the lifting and loading work on your behalf. That work includes climbing up and down those basement stairs. Although that might look scary to you, to Junk King it is all in a days work.

Before the crew starts bringing items up and out of the basement, they will want to lockdown the price for the job. That price will always be based on how the truck gets packed up with everything that you are getting rid of. If it is just one third of the truck space, then you will be paying the low-end of the price scale. Junk King always bases its prices on volume and not weight. You will notice prices before the work begins and you will find that it is very fair and competitive.

Starting your basement remodel with a rubbish removal session with Junk King Chicago is a very smart approach. Book that session today.

Hire Junk King For Fast Kitchen Appliance Removal

Getting around to a kitchen remodel might just be the last project that you need to accomplish in order to declare that your home is officially “finished.” Part of every kitchen remodel involves replacing the old appliances. That is actually a good thing. It is a safe bet that you have been using the same refrigerator, oven and dishwasher for at least the last 10 years or more. That is typically how long major appliances will last. There have been a lot of amazing design changes made to these types of appliances in the last 15 years. That means you’re going to enjoy picking out the new appliances for your dream kitchen. Before those appliances are delivered you will need to have the old kitchen appliances safely removed. That is a job that is perfect to give to Junk King Chicago.

Easy Out

You might be able to slide your appliances around on your kitchen floor for a few inches but it is an entirely different situation when it comes to getting those big items out your home. The team who will be working with you from Junk King will show up with a lot of experience with this type of removal. They can quickly size up any home environment and know exactly what it will take to safely remove those appliances without banging up walls or scuffing up floors. The Junk King teams are all licensed and insured but they’re also extremely respectful. They will treat your home with the same amount of care as they treat their own home.

Before those appliances are carried out of the house you will need to settle on the price. This is always derived that after the Junk King team has looked over all of the things that you want to get rid of. Once that happens they can determine how it will all fit on to the back of the truck. The less space that your items use, the less you will be paying. That is the fair Junk King pricing formula that customers really appreciate.

Put Junk King Chicago on the job of getting rid of your old kitchen appliances. You’ll be glad that you did.

Move Out Old Rubbish With Help From Junk King

Do you have any “moving day” horror stories? Considering that most folks on the average move at least 11 times over the course of their lives, there is a good chance that you might have not always had a smooth move. Surprisingly enough, having possessions broken isn’t a real “horror.” That is expected. What causes the most problem is time. That is tied to the movers either showing up late or taking up more time than you estimated. No matter how long they say it will take, it always seems to take at least two hours more. That might not seems like a lot until you factor in the concept of “paying by the hour.” Then it becomes an issue.

All of this is meant to support the idea that when it comes to moving, the less you can move the better off you’ll be. That means you shouldn’t move any old junk with you to your new home. That is where a hauling session with Junk King Chicago can be a big help.

Less on the Moving Truck

The less you put on the moving truck, the less time the movers will take up packing that truck. Every little box counts! If you can fill up those boxes with all the unwanted things that you are never going to use again, then those can all be given to Junk King. If you are definitely going to replace some specific pieces of furniture, then why not give those to Junk King as well? That might mean having an “empty space” in your home until the new furniture arrives but it is much better than having to juggle old furniture.

With Junk King, the pricing policy is not based on an hourly rate. Instead, that rate is a flat rate that is based on how the truck gets back to with all the unwanted items you are getting rid of. You’ll know what that price is before the work even begins. Junk King strives to make these sessions fast and affordable.

Before your next move, hire Junk King Chicago to move out the rubbish. Book your session today.

Use Junk King For Remodel Debris Cleanup

All across the country, folks have been taking on building projects in their home. Most of these have been what you might expect like a kitchen or bathroom remodel. However, there have also been some “unique” builds. One man built a replica of the Eiffel Tower in his backyard. Another built a mini-coffee shop. There was also an uncle who built a wooden rollercoaster for his nephew. What kind of building did you take on while sheltering in place? Whatever the project, you probable created a few piles of debris. Whether it is leftover building materials or demolition from the project, your remodel won’t be complete until all of that debris is removed. Junk King Chicago can help with that task.

Truck Space

As you went through your remodel, you probably discovered how important cleanup was at the end of every work day. Of course, that doesn’t mean a “complete” cleanup. Making a pile of debris in the yard or driveway would qualify as cleanup; it just isn’t finished. That’s where Junk King comes into play. We’ll send over a team of movers who will swiftly load up all the things that you want to get rid of. All of that debris will go onto the back of the Junk King truck. Before one piece is loaded up, you’ll want to lock down the fee. That fee will always be based on how much space your debris will take up on the truck. One price covers all the work. And that price isn’t going to change because things turn out to be too heavy or the cleanup takes longer than anticipated. Even if the junk takes up more room on the truck, you’ll still pay that original fee.

To set up your appointment, you just need to pick the day and two-hour window that works best for your schedule. That can mean early morning or on the weekend.

Remodel debris removal is easy when that job is given to Junk King Chicago. Book the crew today.

Junk King Chicago Provides Reliable Storm Debris Cleanup

Although tropical storm Isaias certainly didn’t cause any trouble for the Chicago area it doesn’t mean we have been spared from severe storms this summer. It seems as though every couple of weeks another powerful thunderstorm will rage through the area. Those storms always cause extensive wind damage and power outages. It becomes a scramble for municipal crews to get that power back up again. It also means homeowners are left with the task of cleaning up. That is when hiring outside help might just be the best option. For the record, Junk King Chicago not only clears away rubbish from inside of your home but they also provide reliable storm debris cleanup for your front and back yards.

The Same Great Service

The same great service that you would expect from team Junk King to remove an old sofa is the same service you’ll get with a storm debris cleanup. You will be assigned a pair of movers and a big truck to facilitate this cleanup. That is really all you need to remove any kind of debris that has landed in your yard from a storm. That same team can also be a big help if some type of backyard structure needs to be taken apart. You could have an old trampoline the playset that was damaged in a storm that needs to be dismantled. They could also be a toolshed or planters from the garden that were wrecked. All of that can be loaded onto the Junk King truck in a very efficient manner by the crew.

That same great service will also come at the same great price. There is no difference whether Junk King is removing furniture or tree branches. The fee that you pay will be based on how the crew will pack up the truck with all the things that you are getting rid of. They will always strive to get as much as they can crammed into as little space as possible. The reason for that is so that they can make another pickup and you can take the low end of the price scale.

Junk King Chicago remains the best choice for storm debris cleanup.

Use Junk King For Fast Rubbish Removal

Are there any particular recipes that you are hesitant in cooking for fear they may create lingering odors in the kitchen? That is a risk to take when cooking certain seafood dishes or anything that calls for a lot of garlic. Those temporary lingering odors are well worth enjoying a delicious meal. Of course, the faster you get those scraps out of the kitchen the quicker those orders will disappear. Trash is something that you never want lingering inside your home. However, there are probably a few items that would be classified as trash or rubbish that might have been lingering around your place for quite some time.

Make the Call

When you want to get rid of your unwanted rubbish items you first have to make the call to decide exactly what should be on that list.

Junk King Chicago Offers Safe Rubbish Removal

Businesses have a responsibility to keep their workers and their customers safe. That means any business like a restaurant or retail store has to have floors that aren’t slippery and easy access in and out. Of course, today safety precautions take on a whole new level as we all work together to flatten the curve of the pandemic. Now businesses will be establishing safety protocols to ensure that their employees and customers follow the guidelines put forth by the CDC meant to prevent the spread of the virus.

Now we just have to provide our exceptional service with a little “distance.” That will be a problem for Junk King and we are dedicated to help provide you with safe rubbish removal from your home, office, business or apartment.

Social Distancing In Effect

Social distancing means creating a 6-foot buffer between people. For a rubbish removal this can work when customers place the objects that they want removed out on their front porches or in the driveway. When the team from Junk King shows up, we can safely load everything onto the truck and maintain that social distance. Even with that distancing, the Junk King crews will still be wearing protective gloves and masks.

As for setting the price, you can text a photo of all the objects that you want to get rid of to Junk King. That will allow us to provide you with a fee based on how the crews will pack up the truck. We can size up any photo whether something will take up one third, one half or the entire truck. Whatever that price is, once it is agreed to it won’t change. That is how Junk King has been operating since the very beginning.

When you’re ready to set up your session with Junk King you can call for an appointment or book online. Your curbside pickup will trigger a $30 discount right from the start. Junk King Chicago always wants to make rubbish removal fast, affordable and safe.
