Toss Out Old Computers The Right Way

You might occasionally see a random chair or table on the curb with a sign that says “free.” Obviously, the intention is for someone to drive by and pick up that item and thereby absolve the person you put it out of any responsibility for getting rid of it the right way. What usually happens is that furniture stays there for days. The longer that happens the less likely it is to be picked up by a random passerby. It then becomes the responsibility of a city crew to come by and pick it up. Nobody on the block wants to be walking by junk every day! You certainly won’t ever see an old computer sitting on the curb. This is something else that can’t be tossed out in the trash and it doesn’t belong as a ”free” item. There is zero chance that anyone would take a computer off the street!

You may be dealing with a situation where you have an old computer in your home that you want to get rid of. It could be a computer that simply stop working or you replaced with an upgraded model.

When Junk King first started collecting unwanted rubbish they adopted environmentally friendly disposal policies. These policies are targeted to support recycling and donations as a way of keeping items out of a landfill. Junk King has been doing this for the last 15 years which made them one of the original “green” businesses. Junk King is happy to take the lead in this area.

They have also stepped up and shown how business can continue in the “new normal” during a pandemic. Junk King follows the guidelines from health authorities that require essential workers to wear masks and gloves as they perform the duties.

All of this is in support of allowing homeowners, apartment renters and businesses to continue to have any unwanted clutter and rubbish.

No Job Is Too Big Or Too Small For Junk King Columbus

Have you ever considered getting rid of a piece of furniture or structure around your home but thought it was impossible? That challenge can be solved with a call to Junk King Columbus. This is a company that prides itself on how effective it can be with removing all kinds of unwanted items even the objects that are extremely heavy and cumbersome. Here is proof of how Junk King operates:

“I called them to haul away some old retainer wall bricks and stone edgers from the front of my house. They responded in about 10 minutes after I requested an estimate on Yelp to set up a time to come out and give me the estimate. They told me they could come out the same day between 3-5pm. They called me about 2:45 to advise they were running a little behind which was fine. Don still showed up before 5pm and gave me a price that I felt was too high. After some negotiating, they brought the price down to $250. Don and Silas showed up the next morning 15 minutes earlier than they said which was awesome, and within 15-20 minutes had everything loaded up and hauled away. They were very nice and professional and if I ever need to have anything else hauled away, I’ll make sure to give them the job. Thanks guys!” – G, Columbus

That is a prime example of the efficient approach Junk King takes for all of its jobs. We want to make the junk removal process affordable and fast for all of our customers.

“Friendly, fast and efficient. I used this service to clean out a garage full of building materials left by the previous home owners. Stephanie and Don came out earlier than expected (they called first to check that was ok) and had everything cleared out and in the truck in about 15 minutes. This was a great experience and I would not hesitate to use them again should the need arise.” – Jennifer, Columbus

“Only needed to use junk removal twice but both times it’s been Junk King but different cities. Always polite, on time, fair and quick. Cannot say enough good about this company.” – Roy, Columbus

Imagine how much better your home will be once all the rubbish is cleared out. Junk King Columbus can make that happen. Call to book a session today.

Having a discount for junk hauling is good motivation but in truth you might not need any more motivation than to simply want to finally get rid of all the unwanted junk in your home.

Some of that stuff are items that are used at least once a year like holiday decorations and winter clothing. Other things are put into storage because you don’t want to throw them out because you consider that wasteful. When you put Junk King on this job, nothing has to go to waste.

Many of the drop-offs that the Junk King crew performs happens at charities. These organizations can take in all kinds of furniture, appliances and other household goods and find a way to put them to use again. That should make you feel good about getting rid of those kinds of things.

Junk King Remains Committed To Safe Rubbish Removal

Staying safe at home has taken on new meaning in recent weeks. In the past, you might have been advised to stay at home during a severe storm. With the goal of preventing the spread of the coronavirus, staying at home now takes safety to a whole other level. Thankfully, there are some services that remain available even with the new safety guidelines. That includes the kind of rubbish removal help provided by Junk King Columbus. We have adapted new safety protocols based on the guidelines from the CDC that are meant to promote safety for our moving crews and our customers. Getting rid of rubbish the right way has always been Junk King’s mission.

Fast Pickup

A curbside pickup of your rubbish by the Junk King team will help maintain social distancing policies. Everything can be arranged over the phone starting with scheduling the appointment for your pickup. As in the past, Junk King wants you to pick the day that works best on your schedule and a two-hour window within that day. It will only take the Junk King team a few minutes to remove all the items that you have set aside for pickup. The two hours is more of a transportation buffer to allow the crews to get from one appointment to the next.

You will also arrange the fee over the phone. That will be accomplished when you send in a picture of all the items that you want removed. We will be able to assess those items and determine how much space they will take up on the back of the Junk King truck. That will determine your final fee. You can pay that price over the phone as well.

Once everything has been removed from your property, the Junk King crew will give you away and be on their way. We will still be practicing our own responsible disposal policies by having items dropped off the charities and recycling centers.

The safe and affordable way for rubbish removal remains a session with Junk King Columbus.

How To Excel At Remote Work

Working from home is becoming the “new normal” for a lot of folks. This can be a challenge for many especially if you’re at home with the kids at the same time. You will find that you can excel at remote work by putting these simple tips into action.

Make A Dedicated Work Space

You need to set up a dedicated workspace and that shouldn’t be your bed or couch. Ideally, this space should be disconnected from the rest of the distractions in the house. That means the kitchen counter might not be the best spot. You can set up a temporary office in a spare room, down in the basement or even up in the attic. The goal should be to have a dedicated space that will allow you to focus on your work.

Stay Connected

You might find that without the stream of coworkers “popping” by that you can actually get a lot more work done. The trade off is that you might create a sense of isolation. That is why you need to stay connected with your coworkers. You can set up a group chat to check in with each other. You should also make a point of reaching out and calling at least once a day.

Make a Schedule

Going to work at an office provided you with structure. Sometimes working at home can make it feel like that structure is “out the window!” That is why you need to make a schedule for your home work day just as you would with your office work. Set a start time, lunch break and end time. You can be a bit flexible because you don’t have to factor in a commute. Once you do make a schedule, stick to it.

Enhance Your Communicating

The foundation of remote work will be communication through emails but you shouldn’t restrict yourself to just that form of communication. There are tools such as FaceTime and video conferencing that can have you staying in touch in more personal ways. The other benefit of setting up these types of networks is that it will compel you to “get dressed” for work. You don’t have to wear your suit at home but you still want to get out of your pajamas for your work day!

Don’t Drop Your Housework

You might feel that working from home gets you off the household chore duties. Actually, it would be the opposite. Even when you worked at an office, you still took care of the household cleaning, laundry and grocery shopping. That still needs to continue. You want to create a positive work environment that isn’t surrounded by clutter. If your cleaning reveals a lot of rubbish and unwanted clutter that you can’t toss out in the trash, you can still count on Junk King Columbus to make a pickup. The new removal procedures that we put into effect will help streamline the process and make sure everyone can stay safe. You won’t have to work at home with clutter when Junk King Columbus is just a call away.

Make Junk King Your Spring Cleaning Partner

Spring cleaning might be one of those tasks that you prefer doing yourself because you know it will be done right. That is not to say that it won’t be exhausting but the results will always be worth the effort. Nothing beats coming home to a totally clean house! Just because you are doing all of the spring cleaning doesn’t mean you have to do it all at once. You can divide the cleaning list over two days so that it won’t seem overwhelming. There is one phase of your spring cleaning that you actually might need a partner for. That would be when it is time to get rid of some bulky rubbish items. That would make Junk King Columbus your perfect spring cleaning partner.

A Strong Team

Junk King is going to provide you with a strong team for your removal session. Each junking appointment is staffed with two capable movers who have a lot of experience lifting all types of heavy objects. In extreme cleanup situations, Junk King might send over additional movers to make sure everything can be cleared out of the home in a single session. Your team will be arriving in a truck that can hold the equivalent of six pickup trucks worth of rubbish. If you have ever filled up a pickup truck, then you know how much you can hold. All of this means is that there won’t be any limitations on the number of things that you can get rid of when you hire Junk King for this task.

The same can be said for weight restrictions. With Junk King there are never any weight restrictions. You won’t ever be charge by the pound for what you are getting rid of. Junk King’s prices are always based on how the truck gets packed up with all of your unwanted rubbish. The less space that the crew uses, the less you will be paying. It is just that simple and fair.

This year, make Junk King Columbus your spring cleaning partner. That will help you get the home totally free of rubbish.

Replace An Old Shed With A She Shed

An old shed in your backyard might be serving the purpose of storage but you might be able to make better use of that space. Have you ever considered replacing that old shed with a new she shed? This could be a bigger shed that lets in the light and has enough room for some cozy furniture. You could even make room for storage. Before setting up that she shed, the old shed has to be cleared out and moved out. That is a job that is perfect for Junk King Columbus.

All the Work

With Junk King on the job, you’ll have a two-man crew who is going to do all the work. That starts with clearing out the old shed. You just have to make the decision of what you’re going to keep and what needs to go. Just like going through a closet inside your home, there are sure to be plenty of things in your shed that you’re no longer going to use. They can all find a spot on the Junk King truck.

Once the shed is clear, the Junk King team will find the most effective way of taking down that shed. Depending on how long the shed has been exposed to the elements, it might not be that hard to bring down. Whatever it takes, the Junk King squad will make sure every scrap of safely removed from your lawn.

That is a big enough job but you don’t have to stop there. The Junk King team can clear away any other unwanted items from your backyard. Those can be the stuff you’ve bough like grills or patio furniture or they can be general yard waste. You’ll be amazed at how quickly Junk King can clear a yard!

Fee Estimate

The fee estimate for this project will be the same as any Junk King session. One flat rate covers all the cost of the labor, transportation and disposal. That fee will always be based on volume and not weight. That can make a huge difference when you’re getting rid of an entire shed.

But often they recommend getting rid of the mattress altogether. Fortunately, Junk King Columbus can help with that type of removal. They also can make it happen very fast.

Special Precautions

In a typical mattress removal situation, the Junk King crews will also provide the same level of professionalism.

 Set Up the Right Time

You want to set up the right time for your mattress to coordinate with the arrival of mattress. Junk King can be very accommodating with their scheduling. As soon as you know the date of that delivery you can lockdown your session with Junk King. Keep in mind that Junk King might also have your mattress recycled.
