Columbus Junk Removal Services – Back To School 2014

“Old school” back to school shopping often meant crowding into the nearest office supply or drug store on the first day of school. This often made these stores look like “black Friday” as families rush to stock up the backpacks. Today, schools have gotten a lot more sophisticated. Lists of needed supplies are emailed out weeks ahead of the first day. A savvy shopper can click around with that list and have everything bought online and delivered within a couple of days. Job done. High school bound kids could also benefit from advance emails by getting a lot of reading accomplished before that first day. You might also discover that many schools welcome laptops in the classroom. This is actually a good thing because the job your kid will eventually land will no doubt involve computers. The more they can use them for study, the better off they’ll be down the road.

Of course, there are some things about back to school that won’t ever change. Top of the list will be that sense of relief you have as you can regain control of your house. With the kids in school, you can get back to your routines and tackle some serious decluttering. As you take the time to walk through your house, make note of all the things you could get rid of if you had someone else doing the lifting and loading. Also, remember that those movers will have a huge truck capable of holding an entire home’s worth of furniture. In other words, there won’t be any limitation on what you can get rid of.

If this past summer was the summer that your kids outgrew things, then you can call on Junk King to take those bigger objects out as well. This includes dismantling a backyard swing set or sandbox. You might have had to swap out toddler furniture for teen furniture. Everything gets loaded on the back of the Junk King truck. You’ll be provided with an estimate based on how much space all that junk will take up on the back of the truck. It is volume not weight for Junk King.

As your junk leaves your home, it will be headed for a recycling center, charity or landfill. The first two options are the choice of Junk King as they are dedicated to keeping as much junk out of a landfill as possible. Junk King makes all kinds of junk removal easy. Put them to work today.

Don’t Turn Your Columbus Home Into A Storage Unit

Most professional organizers will tell you that if you haven’t used something in a year, you should throw it out. This probably has more to do with clothes and shoes than with anything else. However, it is a good approach to take when sorting through all the stuff in your home’s storage unit zones. You only use holiday decorations once a year but you’ll want to keep those unless they’re all busted up. Over the years, there might have been a surge in appliance gifts that have resulted in multiple blenders, toasters and juicers. If those things are still in their box sitting in the garage then you should think about re-gifting or getting rid of.

Then there is the category of plain old junk. This would be things like a broken tennis racket, a chair with no seat, children toys that are torn up or a mattress that no one would ever sleep on again. If you’re holding onto those kinds of objects, then you are turning your home into a storage unit. That can be avoided with a single call to Junk King.
