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. Junk King Chicago has implemented those protocols as well. Even though we don’t have a “store” for customers to visit we are still very much in contact with our customers. 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.

The Fast Way To Remove An Old Lawnmower

Weekend time is always at a premium. From the moment you wake up on your day off you have a finite number of hours to get in all of the things you want done. Not only does that include relaxing and having fun with the family and friends but also taking care of the chores around the house. That is usually why most folks up to take care of those chores first thing in the morning so that they can have the rest of the weekend to do the fun stuff.

For many homeowners, weekends are about mowing the lawn. This is a routine task that is easy to complete provided you have the right equipment. When a lawnmower breaks down then the whole day can be ruined. That is why you want to replace your old lawnmower as quickly as possible. That might only involve one trip to the nearest hardware store for that replacement. But you also have to factor in getting rid of the old lawnmower. That can easily be taken care of with one call to Junk King Chicago.

Making Room in The Garage

When you hire Junk King for your old lawnmower removal you will be able to make room in the garage for the new lawnmower.

Anytime you can clear out old rubbish you will be creating new storage space. That is always a valuable commodity in any home!

It will only take the Junk King team a few minutes to load your old lawnmower onto the back of their truck. That can leave them plenty of time to gather up anything else that you would like to get of. Just because you called in Junk King to cart away your old lawnmower doesn’t mean they can’t remove old furniture, clothing, appliances and electronics in the same session. Go ahead and fill up that truck; that is what it is there for!

Call on Junk King Chicago for fast removal of your old lawnmower and the rest of your rubbish. They are standing by to help today.

Take Your Spring Cleaning To The Next Level

Spring cleaning is meant to be a kind of “floor-to-ceiling” operation. It is a once of a year (at least!) deep cleaning that can transform a home. The best part of spring cleaning is the next day. That’s when you get to come home to that sparkling clean house. The hope is that all that hard effort will last a long time. While the dusting, moping and cleaning can make a big difference, there is another way to take your spring cleaning to the next level. That would be hiring Junk King Chicago for a thorough rubbish removal session.

The Rubbish That Matters

As you set out on your spring-cleaning task, you’re sure to come across a lot of rubbish to toss out. Some of that can be old magazines and newspapers, junk mail and other trash items. You don’t really need Junk King for that kind of removal. What they’re meant for would be the rubbish that can’t be tossed out in the trash. That would be the big stuff like an old futon or recliner. It would also be things like televisions, DVD players, game consoles and computers that you’ve replaced. E-waste should never go into the trash. All of that should be turned over to Junk King for responsible removal.

Actually, Junk King approaches all of its disposal in a responsible manner. The crews have been trained to spot those items that could be dropped off a charity. Many charities take in furniture in need of a little TLC to get it ready for a family. As for the recycling end, there are a lot of items that can be recycled that you might not be aware of like mattresses, lumber and wood. All of those recyclables, including the e-waste, will be dropped off at the proper facility. That is how Junk King operates.

If you call into Junk King today to set up your session, you might be offered a same day pickup. If that isn’t available, then Junk King will strive to get your things picked up by the next day. You shouldn’t have to wait long to get rid of your rubbish.
