Colorado Moving and Junk Hauling

A new report released by the Colorado Division of Housing has found that the average monthly rent for apartments in Colorado Springs has gone up by 5%. Right now that rent hovers around $759 whereas the average highest rent is closer to $840. This is a perfect example of how the law of supply and demand works when it comes to real estate. Because so many former homeowners are having trouble paying their mortgages they decided to move into apartments. And with fragile home sale prices those folks who’ve been saving up to buy their first home are finding it a lot more affordable to stay put in their apartments. All of this means that there are far fewer apartments then residents who need them. Thus when the supply goes down and the demand goes up so does the price.
You might even find yourself in a situation where moving from one apartment to a cheaper apartment is a better solution to help save money. It could be that you’re going from a two-bedroom to one bedroom or open loft space. If that is the case then you definitely want to give a consideration to downsizing when it comes to everything you own. Simply put, this means you shouldn’t be bringing your old junk to your new apartment.
Many folks think that the best way to get rid of the junk it to simply have a yard sale a week or two before the move. While this is a good idea especially if you can make some money from stuff that you’re going to throw out, what happens with all the stuff that doesn’t get sold? You’ll be forced to haul it back into your apartment and pack it up or leave it on your yard and hope someone will grab it. That’s not a very nice way to say goodbye to your neighborhood. A better solution is to schedule a junk removal day with Junk King Colorado before you’re moving day.
Although this might seem like you’re adding a step to what is already a hectic time you’re actually going to receive a huge benefit once the move is accomplished. Instead of having to fill up your limited closet space with unwanted junk you can say goodbye to it once and for all. If you’re still set on the idea of a yard sale why not schedule a junk hauling team to show up at the end of the day? That way they can haul away whatever is leftover and you won’t have to lift a finger.
Embracing the concept of a junk moving day will also help you pack up all your belongings that you will be taking with you without the clutter. This means less boxes and ultimately less time for the move. And don’t think it’s just junk that should be hauled away but also those unwanted pieces of furniture or kitchen appliances. If you leave those behind you might be putting your security deposit at risk if your landlord is forced to hire a crew to take them away. You moved into an empty space and that’s just how you should be moving out!

Reorganize Your Office Space in Colorado Springs

Depending on the size of your office you probably have a cleaning crew that comes in at night to vacuum up and dump out the trash cans. This crew will probably also clean out the bathrooms and do a little light dusting but that’s about it. They’re not getting get into any major reorganization of your office space or clear out any of the big piles of clutter. In many ways that’s above their pay grade. This means that responsibility could fall to you to make sure your office is running as efficiently as possible.
While it is true that an office administrator is often the one in charge of supplies and insuring that the staff has what they need to complete their tasks sometimes the administrator can be a bit overwhelmed when it comes to cleaning out the clutter. There’s no reason why you can’t volunteer to pitch in and help them out. A gesture like that is certainly going to be appreciated in the long run.
One of the most common forms of reorganizing office space is to get rid of files. In business it is sometimes hard to let go of files because you never know when you might have to refer back to it. But how many of those boxes and boxes of files that you have stacked in a closet or cubicle will ever really be used again? Is it time to throw them out? If so then you might want to consider hiring a professional crew of junk haulers like Junk King Colorado Springs to handle this matter. They can certainly remove all those file boxes without even breaking a sweat.
Then there would be the issue of all that unused or broken office furniture that might have been shoved into a corner or closet. Perhaps it just wasn’t practical to get rid of these large pieces because you didn’t have the means. However, those same junk haulers that are taking away the file boxes would be perfectly capable of removing all of that office furniture as well. There could even be a veritable graveyard of office equipment that is waiting for the junk heap. This is especially true if you’ve gone through some upgrades for faxes, computers, monitors and copy machines. This equipment would fall into the special category of e-waste. Often the e-waste can’t be thrown away as you would regular garbage. It has to be broken down to its components and disposed of properly. Once again those professional junk haulers can rise to the occasion by providing the right means for the proper e-waste disposal.
After all the clutter of your office has been removed it will be time for one of the fun adventures of working in an office: a trip to the office supply store. This is where you get to find all those cool organizers, desk caddies and space age pens that write upside down. They may not be practical but there certainly fun to have!
