Columbus Junk Removal Reviews

There are a lot of services provided by a city like Columbus. Among them are pickup items for oversized pieces. To get an appointment is to go through the standard level of red tape and telephone prompts. After all of that, there is no guarantee that the city workers will be able to do what you want. There is a limit to what they can take away and how much. That’s what one Junk King customer found out as he started his remodeling job:

“I want compliment your company and especially the crew, Martin and Eric, who worked for me. I am downsizing and doing some home improvements. I had accumulated a number of household items and had scheduled a bulk pickup from Columbus City Refuse Deptartment. That was scheduled for Oct. 20. Today, Oct. 18, contractors began work and I realized they would generate construction debris that would not be accepted for bulk pickup. I found Junk King Columbus, called and was scheduled for an estimate in about 2 hours. A few minutes before they arrived, I got a call saying they were on their way. Eric introduced himself, took an look at the quantity of stuff and gave me a quote, he said they could begin right then. His crew worked quickly and efficiently to load the truck. I could not be more satisfied. Both contractors working for me were impressed as well and asked for business cards. In the end, I was able to cancel the refuse pickup from the city.”

That’s just a typical day for Junk King Columbus. Customers who have never used our services discover how easy it is to finally get rid of tons of junk. Take concrete, for instance. As that reviewer discovered, there is a weight limit with regard to municipal pickups. You might think you can break up concrete and put it in your trashcan but if it’s too heavy it’s going to stay on the curb. Then what?

Junk King doesn’t charge by weight. Instead they charge by the amount of space your junk will take up on their truck and they have truck packing down to a science.  The reason why customers love Junk King Columbus is due to that efficient service.  You don’t even need to drag items down to the curb –  simply point and the experienced crew will haul the items from where they stand.

Keep in mind that Junk King also won’t turn away your items for pickup. Unless it is deemed a true hazardous waste, anything can go on the back of the JK truck. The crew is capable of dismantling, unhooking and breaking down just about anything. Even if you have a tool shed that has collapses in the last local storm, the Junk King crew can pile up all those scraps and insure they will be taken away and disposed of the right way. When cleaning your home fast is at stake, you don’t want to leave anything to chance.

Columbus Debris Removal

Do you know what’s going on behind the scenes at local Columbus restaurants? It doesn’t take a lot of snooping to find out. That’s because all inspection reports are to made open for the public. Here are some recent “issues” found around the Columbus area eateries:

Wendy’s violations: A buildup of dust was observed on the fans in the walk-in cooler. Food particles were observed on the floor in the walk-in freezer, making the floor sticky.

Kindercare Center violations: A buildup of food particles was observed in the microwave. Grease was observed around the knobs of the oven.

Pink Cricket Restaurant violations: A buildup of dust and dirt was observed on the ceiling and walls by the fryers and pizza oven. Dirt and mold were observed on the floor around the toilet in the downstairs restroom.

Have a safe and happy Red, White and Boom

In a few days the solstice will come, marking the longest day of the year and the official start of summer. Before long the 4th of July will roll around and with it Red, White and BOOM! While trying to overcome the writer’s block of sitting down and writing this message I decided to look around and found a few neat articles that I wanted to share with you all.

This first one is an article of tips for taking good photographs of fireworks with a mobile phone, I’d assume they’d apply to digital cameras and other night photography as well. As a matter of fact, I bet those techniques would be applicable to other nighttime summer activities like the Perseid meteor shower (that’s a link to the NASA tool that estimates the number of shooting stars per hour based on your location) every year in August but usually peaking around the 12th).

Here is a link for those of you planning a visit to Red White and BOOM! (the event’s homepage).

If you haven’t had a chance, make sure to visit the Scioto Mile, at the south end of the park is a nice new restaurant and fountains (complete with lifeguards!) where you can go splash in the water to cool off.
