What started out as a practical joke has ended up being a special holiday tradition for the last 30 years. This is the Annual Bob Telmosse Christmas Giveaway started by local businessman Bob Telmosse over 30 years ago. Back then, the late Mr. Telmosse owned a very successful furniture store in the Denver area. As a joke, one of his friends placed an ad in the local paper proclaiming that Bob would be giving away food at his store. When folks showed up for the charity, Bob felt so embarrassed he told them to come back the next day. By then he lined up some donations and handed out packages of food. That idea stuck and Bob continued with the holiday giveaway. Today, that tradition is carried on by dozens of faithful volunteers. This year thousands of local folks turned up at the Freedom Financial Expo Center to get free toys, food and clothing with no questions asked. That’s just how Bob would have wanted.
The volunteers are always amazed that no matter how grim things might look in terms of donations, a Christmas miracle always seems to happen and there is plenty on hand to give away. This year they only had about a dozen bikes to give away until the last minute when over 500 bikes were donated. It’s a perfect reminder of the spirit of giving.
Fortunately, that spirit of giving doesn’t have to end with the holiday season. You can make donations to many charitable organizations and clean up your home at the same time all thanks to the effort of Junk King Colorado Springs.
When Junk King collects something that could possibly be repurposed they will drop it off at one of those charities for a donation. This includes any type of furniture, appliance or any type of item that could be of benefit to someone in need. Best of all you don’t have to figure out if your give-away stuff is worthy of a donation; Junk King will make that determination. All you need to focus on is picking out the items you want taken away and the Junk King crew will handle the rest.
As far as pricing is concerned, Junk King will only charge you by the amount of space your item takes up on the back of their truck. There will be no hidden charges or dumping fees. Whether your junk is recycled, donated or placed in a certified landfill it’s a safe bet that Junk King Colorado Springs is the best option for cleaning out the clutter of your life.
Every holiday you’ll find a debate raging in homes all across Colorado Springs: “this year, do we get the big HD plasma screen or not?” There will no doubt be some amazing sales to lure customers into purchasing these great high-end television sets. If you agree to go big screen you also may decide to get a new sofa or at the very least a new recliner or two. To make room for this updated family media center, you’re going to have to get rid of the old furniture – and it’s about time! To accomplish that task, you should consider hiring a Colorado Springs furniture pickup company like Junk King to take away the old stuff and make room for the new.
Of course, you might have already gone “big screen” so now it really is time for a new seating arrangement. Having a big HD television is going to draw the family together for Blu-ray movie night. Does everyone have a comfortable place to sit? The best surround system and plasma screen in the world won’t amount to much if you can’t get cozy while you’re watching it.
You could surprise your better half by merely having the furniture hauled away. Then when they come home from work you’ll have no option but to go out to buy a new sofa set. Sneaky? Perhaps, but it’s also a great motivator to buy new seats when the old seats are gone. If you want to pull this stunt then you really should have a professional Colorado furniture pickup crew handle the job. They can slip into your home in the morning and clear out the living room in a matter of minutes.
Just because you’re hiring a furniture pickup crew doesn’t mean the living room furniture is the only stuff that can go. This could be a golden opportunity to take away any broken chairs, wobbly tables or kid desks that they’ve outgrown. As long as the Junk King crew is coming over you might as well load them up! Don’t be shy. You can also get rid of old filing cabinets, mattresses or even broken kitchen appliances. Think of this as a major spring cleaning, just earlier.
Working with a qualified furniture disposal company like Junk King means that the crews they have hired are going to be professionals. They’ll also be licensed and insured. Those are exactly the kind of workers you want coming into your home. You don’t have to make friends with them, but they shouldn’t be strangers to the company you are hiring. There have been too many horror stories of hiring cheap day laborers only to end up in worse shape. When it comes to your home, don’t take any chances. Hire a locally owned and operated furniture pickup company like Junk King Colorado Springs.
