Junk Removal FAQs in Columbus Ohio

Interested in professional and efficient junk removal? Of course you are! Junk King is the company for you. Before booking, reviews these FAQs and get all the answers you need.

Will Junk King give me an estimate over the phone?

Yes and no. We can provide a general price based on the amount of stuff you tell us you want thrown out. However, the final estimate can’t be calculated until the Junk King crew can physically see everything you’re throwing out. Your price will be a flat fee based on volume and not weight. Your junk might take up one third, one-half or the full truck. If we under estimate the volume, you’re not going to be charged extra. You’re also not going to be charged for labor, traveling time, truck rental or dumping fees.

Will you be able to remove everything I’m getting rid of?

We’ll send over a big truck and that hard working two-man crew. That is usually what it takes to get the job done. If you have some special circumstances like a total foreclosure cleanout then we can provide additional manpower at no extra charge. Just let us know what you want to get rid of and we’ll take care of the rests.

What happens to all of my stuff once it is loaded onto your truck?

The most important thing is that when your junk is loaded, the job is done as far as you’re concerned. Our crews will still be working to make sure your junk is disposed of in a responsible manner. This could mean dropping the items off at a certified recycling center or a local charity. The last stop we would make is to an area landfill. We want to keep as much junk out of those sites as possible. It’s all part of Junk King’s green business policy.

How much notice you do need?

We’ve got crews working all around the Columbus area most of the week. Typically, we need at least 24 hours to accommodate your junk removal appointment. If one of those crews happens to be within striking distance of your home on the day you call, we could send them over right away.

There might be a lot of junk haulers in Columbus but there is on one Junk King. For quality junk removal, stick with the king!

Columbus Clean Out – College Edition

There will be a lot of excitement surrounding sending your kid off to college. At some point, that kid will be going off to make a life of their own. College can certainly prepare them for that. Whether this is their first or last year, it is a major achievement. It’s also a perfect opportunity to take stock of what they are leaving behind. Before they head off, you should take a few moments with them for a quick inventory check of their room. It’s time to decide what to keep and what to toss out. You might not be giving that room a complete makeover, but there is probably a lot of clutter that can be hauled away. Once you’ve identified what has to go, give Junk King a call to help with the clean out.

school-days-576051-mAs you go through your kid’s room, you might decide it’s time to get rid of that single bed and bureau. They simply could have outgrown those things. Or they might be taking them onto the new apartment/dorm. Then there is all the stuff filling up the closet. There are probably boxes of clothes, shoes, hats and other items that can be tossed out. Keep in mind that the stuff you’re getting rid of that can be used by someone else can be donated. That’s part of Junk King’s overall eco-friendly policy. If they think something can be recycled then they’ll make sure it gets dropped off to the proper location.

Beyond your kid’s room, Junk King can also help with a total home clean out. You can take them down to the basement and have them pull out all the bulky things you’re holding onto down there like sofas, appliances and other household goods. The Junk King crew can then move out to the garage and do their thing out there removing all kinds of rubbish. As a final phase of your home clean out, Junk King can also make a tour of your yards to remove any items that might be ruining your curb appeal. Everything goes onto the back of the same truck on the same appointment.

In terms of pricing, you’ll find that Junk King is the best deal in Columbus. You’ll be paying a flat rate based on how much space your junk will take up on the back of that truck. There won’t be any extra dumping fees or labor costs. When it comes to a clean out, Junk King really is the king!
