How to choose a hauling and junk removal service

The past few years have seen a tremendous increase in the number of junk removal and hauling services in the Columbus area. As such, some of the businesses offering hauling and trash related services lack professional expertise and experience, this can cause headaches for the home and business owners who unknowingly choose them (usually in hopes of avoiding the headaches and stress of disposing of junk themselves). Thankfully, there are several factors that can help identify a good junk hauling team.

Things to look for in a hauling service:

Flexibility: Not all junk removal services deal with all kinds of junk. Some of the common categories include appliances; construction materials; concrete pavers; furniture; electronic items; lawn and garden refuse; along with all sorts of miscellaneous trash. Make sure that any service you hire covers all the categories of items you want to be hauled away. A good, all-round junk removal service will cover almost anything non-hazardous and recycle as much as possible. Flexibility also includes the ability and willingness to work at a time of your choice.

Customer Service: Check user reviews and ratings to ensure that the company you choose believes in good customer service. This includes prompt answering of the phone during the specified business hours; politely explaining the various terms and conditions as well as the pricing details; giving a clear ETA for the removing team and ensuring that the latter arrives at the promised time; no hidden costs; and a good customer service department for handling problems and complaints.

Pricing: One of the easiest ways to ensure a cost-effective pricing for junk removal is to search for the companies that charge according to the volume of junk to be hauled away rather than the time it takes to load it. Many junk removal firms actually charge by the amount of time that it takes to load and remove the debris. This can artificially inflate the price, especially when dealing with slow workers or multiple items. The better option is to choose companies that charge according to the amount of space taken up by the junk. This means that you get a steady, reasonable rate regardless of how much time it takes to actually move the items.

Insurance: Last but not the least, always make sure that any company you hire has adequate insurance coverage and is licensed or bonded as appropriate. With the necessary insurance, you know you are protected, no matter what.

Junk hauling services differ greatly in pricing, competence, and efficiency. Take your time researching and we are confident you will choose Junk King every time.

Haul Junk Out of Your Columbus Home and Create a Home Office

Before moving into your new Columbus home you probably had visions of what you would do with each room. Obviously the bedrooms, living room and dining room are only a matter of arranging furniture.

Reorganize Your Office Space in Columbus

Budget tightening is not just an issue confronting the politicians in Washington, but everywhere across the country. Of course, those cuts coming from D.C. will have ripple effects reaching all the way into Columbus. Case in point: there is a plan being discussed to close 6 Columbus post offices. This is going to mean the loss of jobs and forcing other post offices to pick up the slack not to mention the inconvenience for the patrons. Perhaps the fault is not so much in budgeting cuts as it is with the need for proper organization. How many times have you been to the post office and it looks like things are just scattered everywhere? Have there been times when they can’t find a letter or parcel? Sure, they do an amazing job considering the volume of mail that moves through their system every day but we can all benefit from an “organizational sweep.”
If you’re reading this article in your Columbus Ohio office (or off hours) think about this environment. How organized is this space? Are you and your coworkers making the most of this environment? Most offices are rentals and businesses are paying by the square footage, but how much of that square footage is dedicated to productive work space as opposed to storing junk? If any of these issues give you pause, it might be time for a top to bottom review of your office and to figure out the best way to reorganize.
A great proactive first step is to get rid of everything that is no longer being used, is broke or contributes to the clutter. This could be accomplished with a quick clean up, but if you really want to get the job done you’re probably going to find items that won’t fit into a garbage can. Typically, this would be all that busted office furniture that has been shoved into a closet. That closet could also be holding all kinds of product or marketing displays that are no longer needed, office equipment that is outdated or files that need to be tossed. Too often items that fill up a storage closet do so because no one wants to take the initiative to get rid of them. Part of this could be in the practical applications: Just who is going to haul it away? If you had a team of professional junk haulers like Junk King Columbus on stand-by alert you could insure that whatever large piles of office junk you have amassed can be taken away.
Once you’ve clear out the junk with the help of a team of experienced movers, you’ll be able to make better use of that space. It could be that a storage room becomes a new office or even a break room. Either one of those options is going to increase productivity. Yes, a break room is good for productivity because a happy and relaxed staff is going to get a lot more done during the course of a typical work day!
