The Best Deck Removal Services in Marietta, GA

The Complete Deck Removals Guide for Marietta, GA


There are generally 7 steps to removing your deck, no matter how tall, long, or big it is. No matter what your reason is for demolition, rest assured that you can either do the removal yourself (it isn’t too taxing in most cases) or you can hire the professionals at Junk King junk removal to demolish the deck and clean the area for you. As the editor-in-chief of Extreme-How-To noted,

“a savvy homeowner can usually save money by removing the deck themselves, and spend the money they save on building a new one.”

  1. Familiarize yourself with your deck—if you don’t know what is under your deck, you’re going to need to find out. Only by knowing what is in the abyss can we adequately prepare for the descent into it. In other words, you won’t know what sorts of issues are under the deck, or what sorts of tools you’ll need for the deck removal until you go actually look.
  2. Start the demo process by first removing the railing—we work from the top down when it comes to decks, that’s just the easiest way for them to break down. Make sure to remove any of the surrounding rail posts as well, since their being gone is critical to how easily everything else breaks down.
  3. Remove the deck boards next—as you work across your deck, make sure to either work in a way that allows you to stay behind the boards (on a piece of plywood, perhaps?) or in front of the board, working your way into the house or onto a staircase (this way is harder, personally). 
  4. Pull the steps apart—at this point, you are either trapped in your house or you are standing on the stairs, in either case, the next step is removing those steps. Pull them apart as neatly as you can, old steps tend to shatter when abused too much and that is a nasty cleanup. 
  5. (If your deck is attached to your home) cut the deck away from your house—or if it is not attached, move on. Start cutting the frame away from the house, working from one side to the other. Once you get a reasonable amount of the way down the deck, the weight should assist in removing it. The key to safety here is to go slowly and listen to the wood as you cut. 
  6. Tear down the decking joints and rim joists—these are the bars that ran under your deck’s boards. If you find them difficult to remove due to rust or soil, try hammering them first and knocking some of the bad material loose. 
  7. Dig out the supporting deck posts—at the base of each section of post there should be concrete support, these are very heavy so unless you have a pulley that can act as a constant focus pulling up against gravity, while the vacuum that holds the concrete gets weaker (which is totally do-able), you might want to consider bashing the concrete apart and pulling the pieces out. The latter version requires more strength, while the pulley version requires more patience, especially if you live in a desert area or a heavily compacted dirt area.

How to Get Rid of Your Deck with 3 Simple Steps


There is, of course, an easier way to get rid of your deck; that would be hiring a professional removal company like Junk King. Get rid of your deck with Junk King today, it is as easy as 3 simple steps:


  1. You pick a date and a two-hour window for us to drop off a MINI dumpster or to arrive with your Big Red Truck and removal crew.
  2. On the day of the arrival, our drivers will call you 15 minutes before their arrival. This gives you more time to yourself, rather than wasting an entire day waiting for our arrival. 
  3. If you agree to our cost, we take your junk. Prices are done differently at Junk King because we prefer to price costs based on the amount of space in our MINI or truck that is used. This saves you money in cases of heavy or large items.

The Expert Guide on How to Choose the Right Deck Removal Company for You


If you choose to move with a professional deck removal company, make sure to do your research to find the one that fits your needs specifically, even if it means calling them and asking questions. Consider the following before you decide to go all-in with a company:


  1. Check out their online presence—you can tell a lot about your Tinder match, make sure to check out your decks removal company choices too.
  2. Meet their customer-facing people early on—consider going to their establishment to speak about an assessment, or have them come to you. What you can’t tell online is how well their customer service training has taught them and that could be the difference between a good or a bad experience. Your decks removal expert should be as courteous as they are handy.
  3. Consider all potential budgets and costs—that doesn’t mean factoring in what happens if a sewer pipeline breaks or something. It means taking into account factors that could be realistic for your area and home. Things like termites, rust and age, or dilapidated conditions should be considered from this angle. 
  4. Make sure to ask questions—how you find those questions will be up to you to research, but generally you’ll want something halfway between “how much does it cost” and “what color underwear does the Junk King wear?” (Red, obviously.) That is, ask questions that are more detailed than basic costs, without getting bogged down in detail.

Marietta’s Guide to Yard Waste Removal

Yard Waste Cleaup

You Can’t Avoid Yard Work this Summer


If only any of us could, the HOA would be out of a job. Until that time comes, you can’t avoid yard work and unfortunately, as the world continues to warm, it’s never been so important to keep up with it. Here are some of the top reasons for that:


  1. The world getting warmer means everything gets dryer, and wildfires are fast. One of the most used arguments for stopping climate change is that it causes more destructive weather events. Making sure to clear the area around your home and property will aid you greatly in defending your home from wildfire. The fire cannot spread if it does not have anything to catch. 
  2. The housing market climbing higher means that the HOA will be on the watch for possible violations and fines. This is a common strong-arming approach that many HOAs decide to utilize as a way to manage property values. This means that the more violations your home has, the more likely your home will be considered of lesser property value, making those houses around yours also less value.
  3. As we enter the summer of the second year since COVID, your friends and family are likely wondering why they haven’t been invited over for a barbecue. If this is the case, you’re going to have to do the summer yard work for the first time in two years; before committing to doing it, make sure you are physically healthy enough to do whatever projects you have in mind. There is never any shame in requesting help from professionals if you find that you’ve bitten off more than you can chew. (Even if you just need some assistance lawn mowing.) 


yard waste removal guide


Junk King removal services operate as two distinct options for the residential and the business owner. The first option is our self-service, which includes a 12-cubic yard dumpster rental over multiple days; whereas the second option is our full-service, which includes a Junk King Big Red Truck, capable of hauling away 6 pickup truck beds worth of stuff, and a professional two-person removal team. 


Even though you can’t avoid yard work this summer, you may be able to make the labor if it is more enjoyable for you (if not remove the labor altogether). Junk King’s full-service option comes equipped with people able to assist you with any stage of your project, whether that means tree cutting and clearing, demolitions, cleanings, or the removal of construction or yard debris. This is important because not all junk removal and trash disposal services are able to provide a full-service removal experience as Junk King can. When you choose to move with Junk King, junk removal is as easy as 1, 2, 3—just point and the junk is gone!



Getting Rid of the Grass Clippings


Trash pickup


Not everything can be thrown into the trash to head for the landfill. Likewise, not everything needs to head straight there either. In the case of yard debris, the disposal of the debris is important because improperly disposing of the organics can cause a bad reaction once in the actual landfills. For example, a bag of grass clippings being ripped open and dried in the sun is not a particularly hazardous thing—but if those grass blades are dried enough they can combust when the weather is right. That takes those grass clippings from harmless to deadly in the wrong landfill facility. 


So how do you remove organic yard debris? The first thing to consider is total yard cleanup. The chances are, if you have a yard, you also have debris in it. For that reason, you should always look at your removal options from a perspective of ‘most benefits’ rather than ‘can they remove a bag of leaves from the backyard?’ For example, a benefit of hiring Junk King to remove your grass clippings is that you don’t have to lift a finger from the moment our professionals step onto the property. Additionally, because of Junk King’s environmentally conscious approach to junk removal and trash disposal, we take the extra time to ensure that as much of every haul possible is recycled, reused, repurposed, or donated. A minimum total of 60% of everything we haul is a company policy, but we are able to sometimes donate or recycle as much as 90-95% of every haul. 



How Much does it Cost for Yard Waste Removal Near Me?


Junk removal service will end up costing you more than what it would cost you to do it yourself, however, this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t consider it, especially if you are unsure of what you are doing, or if you would like some additional professionals assisting you (rather than say, your brother-in-law). In the case of Junk King Cobb County, many people have reported rates as low as $60 for the use of a Junk King MINI, while numbers as high as $600 have also occurred. The vast range of prices is due to Junk King’s wide variability—a self-service MINI will always cost less than the Big Red Truck, but will backache the day after the removal be worth it to you? 


Additionally, you could always contact a yard waste removal service near you—the local landscaping professionals will have the removal of yard debris as an option. As of this writing (June 2022), there are four particularly good (5 stars) yard waste removal companies suggested for the Marietta area by Home Advisor:




Or you can choose to go a different route and look through your options with LawnStarter—they work similar to Home Advisor but have the huge benefit of being exclusively for yard work. This means that you will likely have more options for specialized work if you use Lawn Starter to find your service provider. 


Additionally, according to the Marietta, GA location landing page for Lawn Starter, the top services, and their average costs are as follows:


  • General lawn care or mowing: $35 average price for a small yard
  • General landscaping maintenance: $432 average price for a complex yard
  • Bush Trimming/Reshaping: $58 average price for two wall hedges, simple trim
  • Lawn treatments: $81 average price for a small yard
  • Sodding: $371 average price for small yard
  • Miscellaneous maintenance: $357 average price for small yards



Unless you know a lot about yard maintenance and some good places to get good deals on materials, chances are you are going to need some help from the professionals at some point. Generally, choosing to work with professionals that specialize in their fields, will end up being better for you in the long run because they know tips and tricks for their work. In the case of yard maintenance this is the case—there is no reason to order general landscaping maintenance and then also order a dumpster for the debris, your yawn care provider should be able to take care of the disposal for you—when they can’t, is when you can call on Junk King to be there.


 full service junk removal


Suffice to say, if you are not in need of additional lawn services or landscaping management, who should you call for yard waste removal help? Junk King would always suggest that our services exist in order to assist those who need to use them. Additionally, it is important to note that choosing to work with a yard waste removal company will end up with them being able to take only a certain amount of waste with them, as work trucks are not equipped to deal with fallen trees or things like fencing or concrete.


These sorts of restrictions are what drive Junk King to advise that non-maintenance yard waste removals, should be completed by a professional junk or trash removal service. The cost for Junk King services ranges from $60 to $600, based on the service picked and the needs of the client. For example, a person needing to use an aforementioned Junk King MINI could get away with a cost as low as $125—and that’s with full use of the MINI for three days. If you are interested in gathering some quotes for your potential services and needs, start with us!
