Columbus Junk Pickup – keep the Scioto clean and de-clutter your life

Not many cities can boast that a river runs through them. But in Columbus, Ohio the Scioto River courses it way through the downtown area. There are plenty of charming cafes and restaurants along the river and just as many folks who enjoy the river for boating, fishing, and swimming. And don’t forget about all the fish and fowl who also share the tributary. Sadly, there are some other items that make their way along the currents of the Scioto that aren’t as welcomed. This is all the trash that is dumped along the banks and directly into the water.

Thankfully, there are crews of dedicated volunteers who willingly give up their time to keep the river clean by picking up tons of trash. Imagine the effort it takes to load up a truck or SUV with junk, drive to a secluded spot along the river and dump the garbage. There is a better way to handle your junk and it just takes a little organizing and a little effort.  Before you do anything rash, consider Junk King.  Junk King offers the best Columbus junk pickup services available.

The key to getting rid of your junk is recognizing that it is junk. You can start with a simple proclamation, “I’m a hoarder” and go from there! There was a reason why these items were brought into your home. They once served a purpose but because of over use or under use, they no longer serve a purpose. It’s time that the junk moves on!

Often folks hang onto their junk because it’s easier than sorting through it and tossing it aside. One possibility is to set up a good old fashion yard sale. Wait for a sunny weekend and get some help from the family or friends to pull all the items out on the front yard or driveway. You can post a couple of simple signs at the end of your block to attract customers. If you’re feeling really adventurous, you might also invite a couple of neighbors to join you in your garage sale day.  Don’t worry about setting a price for all your items. The best approach is with the “make me an offer” attitude. Yes, you won’t be getting what you originally paid for the item but you will be getting rid of it and isn’t that worth a lot?  The more the merrier and the greater the chance you’ll attract even more potential buyers.

The goal would be to end your yard sale day with an empty yard and a pocket full of cash. But there are always some leftover items. Embrace the idea that if you were willing to sell these items then you were willing to get rid of them. You can follow through with that by setting up an appointment with some professional junk haulers on the Monday after your yard sale. They can show up early in the morning and get rid of everything you couldn’t sell. The other option would be renting a dumpster that needs to be picked up and dropped off but that’s a lot to inflict on your neighbors.

Take Back Your House with our Columbus Junk Removal Service

Ohio Governor Ted Strickland recently announced the formation of a new solar energy farm to be built on the site of a former strip mine. That’s going to mean more jobs for local Columbus residents and a boost in energy savings. So, what does this have to do with junk removal in your home? If a company can remove all the junk from a strip mine to build a brand new solar panel farm imagine what you can do when you clear out the unwanted junk from your home. Bringing in a Columbus junk removal service is going to be the first step towards opening up a world of new possibilities for your house.

We’ve all got that one closet or back room that is crammed full of junk. It starts with a box of old clothes and quickly grows into a monster wall of garbage. Remember how it was when you first moved into your home? Wide open spaces everywhere you looked. You might have had plans for those spaces. Maybe it was an arts and crafts table set up in the basement. Maybe it was a sewing station in that spare bedroom. But those plans went right out the window as soon as the junk started piling up. You can reclaim those wide open spaces when you hire a junk removal service to come in and haul away all that useless stuff.

It’s easy to take a bag of clothes down to the nearest Goodwill or Salvation Army Center. The difficulty comes when that one bag of clothes becomes piles of moldy books, broken toys, and discarded electronics (still holding onto that VCR you haven’t used in five years?) And that’s just the small stuff. Imagine if you can finally get rid of that busted fridge sitting in your garage or the ratty sofa in the basement. Now you’ll really have some elbow room to work in.

One of the reasons we let our junk take over our homes is because it’s such a hassle to get rid of it especially for the big items. Hiring a professional team of junk haulers clears away all the stress of cleaning out the clutter. And it’s something that can be accomplished in just a few hours. If you’re living with other family members, chances are they have their own piles of junk that need to be tossed out as well. Why not make a great family project of gathering up all the stuff that has to go into one ginormous pile and let the pros take it away?

Once you’ve got your space back make sure you put it to good use. You don’t want to go back to collecting more junk. Although that will make the junk haulers happy! Removing the clutter from the home allows you to consider a world of new possibilities in entertaining and exploring your creativity. Even if it means you want to turn your new empty space into a jigsaw puzzle building; make the best jigsaw puzzle building room ever!
