Columbus Yard Waste

When you think of sweet wine tastings, images of California’s Napa Valley or the rich vineyards of France spring to mind.  Generally, people do not consider Columbus, Ohio as a wine capitol. But thanks to some new grants, local wineries are able to plant more grapes which are going to mean the potential for more award winning wine. Have you ever thought about planting some grapes or even a small veggie garden in your backyard? It’s not as challenging as you might think. The first question then becomes, what shape is your backyard in? You might have to clear out some space. This could mean digging up sod, pulling out bushes and basically turning your yard upside down. Luckily, you can call on the services of a Columbus Ohio yard waste removal service to be part of your garden project.

The simple truth is that you can’t start growing until you do some clearing. This is the perfect kind of project to involve the whole family. Get some twine to mark out the territory then pass out the shovels. In no time you’ll have mounds of dirt that need to be hauled away. This isn’t something you can merely pour into a garbage can. There’s going to be way too much yard waste for the weekly municipal pick-up. If you’ve already planned ahead then you’ve scheduled for a professional yard waste removal team to do the pick-up and hauling. You could dig up on Friday and be planting by Sunday!  And don’t worry if you don’t have a green thumb. There are so many amazing website resources that can take you through the process of planting and growing your own vegetables and herbs.

Maybe gardening just isn’t your thing. But that doesn’t mean your backyard can’t stand with a bit of freshening up. Perhaps you want to lay the ground work for a new deck or patio. And don’t forget about the possibilities of installing a soothing hot tub in a secluded corner of the yard. For any one of those projects, you’re going to have to clear some ground just like you would with a garden. And just like a garden project, you’ll be creating mounds of dirt, sods, broken concrete or bricks. All of that yard waste can be hauled away in one trip with an experienced Columbus yard waste removal company.

Chances are if you’re taking on a backyard project you might be doing a lot of the work yourself. That’s half the fun! But that doesn’t mean you have to do everything. Would you even know where to haul a truck load of dirt? Would you want to put a truck load of dirt into your own car? Of course not and why should you when you can bring in the pros with a yard waste removal company.

It’s also a smart move to do a little research and add a Columbus yard waste removal company to your list of “important phone numbers.” Just like a having a good plumber or handyman on your contact list, a yard waste removal company will sure come in handy if any storms sweep through and leave a path of destruction in your backyard. Don’t get caught unprepared!

Columbus Foreclosure Clean Out

A popular new reality series on cable TV is “Flipping Out.” This show follows the adventures of a real estate developer who likes buying up properties and flipping them for a profit. Back during the real estate bubble, flipping houses was all the rage. It seemed like everyone was getting into the market just to flip a home. But then the bubble burst and thousands of homes ended up in foreclosure. Was this a case of home owners over extending themselves? Or was it the market not being able to sustain the prices? Either way, there is now a glut of foreclosed homes sitting on the market.

This could mean that “flipping” is coming back when some smart real estate brokers swoop in to take advantage of all those incredible prices. Of course, before any flipping can begin, you first have to get the property back in shape. A Columbus foreclosure clean out team is the perfect first step to bring a foreclosed home back on the market.

Hiring a foreclosure clean out is another way of saying that you’re hiring a junk hauler. They are doing the same thing but maybe for different purposes. Someone who cleans out their garage, basement or attic to make more storage space will call on a professional junk hauling company to take away all that clutter. That same team of trash movers can be called upon to clear out a foreclosure house that is full of garbage from floor to ceiling.

When a real estate broker decides to take on a foreclosed home, they first need to inspect the property. If they start snapping pictures on their cell phone they’ll have a record of all trash that was left behind. Things like ratty furniture, moldy kitchen appliances, boxes of garbage, soiled rugs and stained mattresses could be piled up everywhere. Not a pretty picture! After the Columbus foreclosure clean out crew does their thing, the real estate broker will be able to snap shots of empty rooms ready for repainting and refurnishing. It’s those pictures that go up on any real estate web site. Imagine trying to sell a foreclosed home with any of those “before” pictures.

What should you look for with a foreclosure clean out crew? The first thing to consider is their experience. Just because you have a big truck and can hire some day workers standing on the corner doesn’t mean you’re a reputable business. If someone is coming onto your property to provide a service you want to make sure that are bonded, licensed and insured. This will provide you with assurance that the job is going to be done on time and on budget.

It all comes down to a question of reliability. The junk hauler who has a strong customer base with positive reviews is a company you’ll be able to count on. A lot of their business happens thanks to word of mouth. That means they are putting their reputation on the line with every job.

Junk King Columbus is that kind of reputable company – providing real estate foreclosure clean out services and trash out services at an affordable price.Call 1-800-995-JUNK or book online to schedule a free on site estimate today.
