Contra Costa Moving and Junk Hauling

When it comes to moving into your new home, you’ll have a priority list of items to bring. Your furniture and televisions would be top of that list. Those are also easy to wrap up. It’s the stuff you put into boxes that need to be sorted properly. If you don’t label those boxes, you could be spending your first night in your new home searching for the pillows and sheets. That is why it is always best to set aside things like a change of clothes and your bathroom supplies into a box that you’ll bring with you. Then you can take your time with the unpacking. What you want to avoid bringing with you is your junk.


The longer you’ve lived at your current address, the greater the chance you had of collecting junk. These items might not have started out as junk but over the years they have either been worn out or stopped being used. That holds true for shoes and sofas! Every item that you’re bringing with you is not only going to need space but it’s also going to go through the hands of your movers. That means it going to take up time. Do you really want to pay your movers to cart over junk you would just as soon get rid of? Instead, consider the move before the move. That would be with hiring Junk King for a complete junk hauling session.

As you sort through your belongings to pack them up, you’re going to see plenty of things you can live without. After you’ve sorted through everything, get Junk King out to your home. Show the crew what you want gone and it will vanish. The other option would be to simply leave behind those objects then schedule Junk King to show up the day after your move. They can go through the entire house and make sure nothing will remain.

If some of your discarded stuff still has a little life left in them, you can rest assured that Junk King will make sure it gets to the right place. Usually, this will mean a charity that specializes in refurbishing furniture and appliances. There is no extra charge for a charity drop off. It’s all part of Junk King’s eco-friendly disposal policies. Start living in your new home without any clutter. Let Junk King handle the junk hauling before the move.

E-Waste Recycling In Contra Costa

Throughout the year, there are occasional e-waste drop-off events that allow you to get rid of things like computers, printers and televisions the right way. The most recent event was held on July 5th at Diablo Valley College from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Although a noble attempt, e-waste recycling probably wasn’t on a lot of people’s minds over the 4th of July weekend. Did you really want to take time off from your holiday to load up your SUV with all your e-waste and drive it over to the college? Probably not. Does this mean you’re stuck with that e-waste until next year? Absolutely not! Junk King is only a phone call away and they’ll help you get rid of all your e-waste plus a whole lot more.


Whenever Junk King collects something deemed e-waste, the red flag goes up. The crews have been trained to spot these particular items and set them aside for recycling. E-waste has been banned from drop off to area landfills. A company like Junk King isn’t going to risk its reputation with irresponsible dumping. You can rest assured that they’ll make sure your e-waste is dropped off at a certified facility. Even if that means taking over a single laptop, they’re going to do what is right.

While it is true that you can hire Junk King to toss out your e-waste, you should take full advantage of the junk removal appointment by turning the Junk King crew loose in your home. Show them all the stuff you want gone and they’ll get it loaded onto the truck in no time. That includes anything that is heavy or oversized. It also includes junk items you might have gathering rust in your backyard. Think about what you’ve got stacked up behind the garage or under the porch. All of that junk can be removed in a matter of minutes thanks to the efforts of the Junk King crew.

Getting rid of all that junk isn’t going to break the bank. Shop around and you’ll find that Junk King’s flat fee pricing package is the most affordable in Contra Costa.
