Junk King Fairfax Is Taking The Pain Out Of Office Furniture Removal

Junk King Fairfax Is Taking The Pain Out Of Office Furniture Removal


Office furniture is a mainstay of work environments everywhere.

Whether your workplace has only one real office surrounded by loading docks and warehouses or is nothing but a giant warren of offices and cubicles, every one of these workspaces will contain some office furniture. And what most office furniture has in common is that they are almost always made up of heavy items.

Of course, if all you do is sit at your desk and never have to relocate it or move it to a different office, that bulk is simply a good feature. It means your desk doesn’t slide around easily! And that credenza in the conference room not only looks nice and holds all the company’s ISO Standards binders, but it’s probably quite heavy and substantial, as well.

The problem is that when these things have to be moved and loaded either because they’re being taken to a new location or because they’re being replaced, the process can be difficult and real pain.

Sometimes literally.

This is why Junk King Fairfax specializes in office furniture removal.

Office Furniture and Disposal: Not a Job for the Faint of Heart

Businesses often relocate for several reasons. Sometimes it’s simply to take advantage of a better location or better lease arrangements. Other times it’s because of the need for larger facilities. And, unfortunately, there is also occasions when a company has to downsize.

All of these scenarios not only involve packing and moving equipment, inventory, tools, and other assets, but it almost always means moving office furniture, as well.

Sometimes the furniture is going to be gotten rid of because the company is upgrading and purchasing all new furnishings. Other times the firm is simply paring down the quantity of furniture items they need and disposing of the excess pieces. Either way, when furniture removal is required, it means hard labor, especially if you or your company decides to tackle it themselves.

Unfortunately, office Furniture removal and disposal are not only demanding work, but if the old pieces are going to be disposed of, you need to know how to dispose of large furniture.

Of course, you may think you know how to dispose of furniture – you just haul it off to the dump, right?

Not exactly. First of all, it’s quite possible the local landfills may not accept your large furniture items. And, in addition to that, most large office furniture is constructed of solid wood or steel and other metals. This means that they are quite likely to be recyclable. In fact, this is a frequent practice – but not frequent enough.

Here’s how it works according to The Balance,

“If the furniture is not suitable for reuse at all (perhaps it’s damaged beyond repair) it will be disassembled, separated into various materials (such as metals, plastics, and fabrics), and sent to the appropriate recycling center. Stuffed furniture may be accepted at your local mattress recycler.”

So, if you’re now thinking, “Well, where can I dispose of furniture properly?” then Junk King Fairfax can help.

When You Need Office Furniture Removal Services in the Fairfax Area

You’ve decided to buy some new office furniture and your old pieces are not even worth donating let alone selling. Or you have to reduce your office and workspace because half your staff is now WFH – working from home – and you no longer need the old furniture items.

The problem is that even if you want to see these pieces properly disposed of – as in ‘recycled’ – you still probably don’t want to take care of it all yourself. So, what do you do?

When you need old furniture removal, especially if it’s old office furniture, you need some reliable and affordable furniture removal services. Of course, you could go to your phone and type in or say, “junk removal near me” or, because you’re in the Fairfax area, something like  “junk removal Fairfax VA” or even just “junk removal in Fairfax.”

The only problem with that approach is that you still have to make a decision among the dozens of results that are probably going to come up. And how do you know which service is going to be the best one?

If you’re like most business owners or managers, you know you want to save money but you also want to get the most value out of the money you do spend. And, when it comes to office furniture removal and other junk removal services, quality means professionalism, reliability, and speed.

Not to mention you want to hire a firm that you know for certain is going to see to it that your old furniture items are recycled and not simply dumped somewhere.

The good news is that, at Junk King Fairfax, we can save you a great deal of time and research.

Simple Tips To Transform Your Fairfax Area Backyard Into An Oasis

It is a tradition for many homeowners and others to retreat to the backyard on weekends and during the warm late spring and summer evenings.

There can be something particularly enchanting about a nicely manicured and landscaped backyard that has been turned into an outdoor residential oasis. It becomes a great spot for entertaining guests and family, as well as a perfect location for barbeques, cornhole games, and other activities.

But transforming an otherwise plain or run-down backyard space into a veritable oasis can be challenging.

Sometimes a Backyard Oasis Transformation Starts with Undoing What’s Already There

Many homes in the Fairfax region have been around for a while.

And, no, we’re not talking about those historic homes like the Pope-Leighey House from 1940 or even George Washington’s Woodlawn estate from 1800.

Actually, we are referring to those homes that have were built more than, say, ten years ago or more. These are the homes that most likely already have wooden decks in the backyard, old tool or storage sheds, and maybe even swimming pools.

And if your backyard has an old deck still standing, it is likely time to engage in some long-need deck removal. Or maybe it’s the old shed that’s been leaning badly for that last three years now and most likely won’t make it through another winter season of harsh winds and snowfall. If so, it may that a shed removal project will need to take place first.

Then there are the overgrown landscaping elements that may need to be pruned, cut back, or even removed in order to give your backyard space a cleaner and more inviting ambiance.

So, the first order of business when contemplating a backyard transformation – and allowing yourself the ability to envision the oasis your yard can become – cleaning up, clearing out, and hauling off is likely needed. In fact, for many backyards, there is going to be some initial yard waste removal and debris removal required before you can even begin to start any new “transformation” tasks.

And what might those be?

 

Inspiration for Your Outdoor Oasis and New Backyard

While it may not seem like much on the face of it, small additions, and elements such as installing  a paver stone walkway or outdoor solar lights can go a long way towards transforming your backyard space.

And if you want to take your makeover project to another level of ambitiousness, you might consider a brick or stone patio or even build a deck to provide an elevated space for entertaining or simply relaxing. Outdoor lighting can be magical and completely transformative, especially at night.

In addition to the more traditional approach of stringing some lights along the back of the house or over the patio, consider running strings of outdoor light along your fencing, through the trees if you have any, or even clear across your backyard expanse.

LED versions of the classic tiki torches can add a surreal and enchanting touch to your backyard space, as well.

Being outdoors while being out of the sun can be difficult but installing some simple sunscreens that either square or triangular can be an easy and aesthetically pleasing alternative to lawn umbrellas. These can be strung from the house to a tree or a fence and placed so that the shade is created at the heat of the day.

When it comes to landscaping, mixing things up between shrubbery for border areas, flower beds scattered here and there for color, and a small tree or two is a simple yet bold way to liven up your yard.

And another relatively simple addition that can turn a bland, boxy expanse of grass into an inviting lawn area is a stone or gravel path or walkway. Along with creating a unique and decorative hardscape element to your backyard space, a substantial path can reduce the amount of grass and, consequently, the amount of water used.

Here is a helpful checklist and guide we put together to inspire you with this project:

JK Gravel Path Infographic

Simple Tips to Make Ease the Cleanup of Your Backyard Oasis Project

It’s a simple fact that any kind of project that involves dirt, grass, old decks, sheds, and other structures is going to result in waste, debris, and junk. And turning your backyard into a suburban oasis is no exception.

And it is another fact that yard waste removal, debris removal, and all other types of junk removal is never easy when you take it on as a “do-it-yourself” project.

For example, what if you really do have an old shed you need to get rid of. Who you gonna call?

You could do a Google search, perhaps, and look for “shed removal near me” but that might not get you the results you really want. And, besides, the reality is that you probably have all kinds of trash, debris, and junk that needs to be gotten rid of before you can work on your backyard oasis.

Then there’s all the junk and yard waste that’s going to be piled up after you’re done with your transformation project. What are you going to do with all that if you can’t or don’t want to get rid of it yourself?

Google “junk removal near me” or “junk removal Fairfax va” or even “junk removal in Fairfax?”

There’s got to be a better solution since you can’t know whether the results you get are for reliable vendors, or if they’re really affordable, or what they do with all your junk after they pick it up. What you really need is a junk hauling company that offers fair and transparent pricing, professional junk removal teams that show up on time, as promised, and that recycle as much of your junk as possible.

Which is why calling Junk King Fairfax for yard waste and other junk removal is a far better option.

And we make it even better by offering you a choice between making use of our award-winning full-service junk removal or renting one of our handy and user-friendly rental dumpsters.

Junk King Fairfax Cleaning Up

Cleaning Up After A Loved One Passes

It is an unfortunate reality of life that people may find themselves taking care of the estate of a deceased loved one. And it is almost always a difficult time for those involved, which make having to deal with the disposal of their loved one’s belongings a stressful chore.

Oftentimes, there is also a house or some other type of home that must be cleared out and cleaned, as well. And this can require the removal of furniture, appliances, and other items that are not being kept or passed down to family and friends. This is what we refer to as an estate cleanout.

While this is a task that family members can certainly take on themselves, in many instances it is far more efficient and emotionally easier to hire reputable estate cleanout specialists.

Which is one of the reasons that Junk King Fairfax specializes in estate cleanouts.

 

Ready To Book? Click & Save $20!

 

When the Time Comes to Clear Out the Home of a Loved One Who Has Passed

It has been said that there are typically four unfortunate events in life that result in an estate cleanout and, oftentimes, an estate sale.

Of course, perhaps the most common and most hear-breaking is the death of a loved one.

Unless arrangements were made in advance, which is rare, this event means that a relative passes away leaving a home full of belongings such as furniture, clothing, household accessories and appliances. And all of these will usually have to be removed and disposed of in some fashion.

If the items in a home are considered to have substantial value, and the family chooses not to inherit them, then an estate sale can serve to reduce the number of belongings left to be gotten rid of. The subsequent work of cleaning up the old things, unwanted items, and ordinary debris, trash, and junk left behind will require some amount of junk clean up.

And this type of cleanup is becoming more frequent as Americans age in increasing numbers.

There are the so-called “Silent Generation” seniors, those born between the mid-1920s to the early-to-mid 1940s, and the Baby Boomers who born between about 1946 and 1964. Taken as a whole, these two generations are anywhere from 58 to 98 or so, and they make up almost 30 percent of the entire U.S. population currently.

And they are passing away in increasing numbers, as well.

It’s been estimated that approximately 10,000 Americans turn 65 each day. In addition to those that are dying, there are also large numbers of seniors downsizing their lifestyle by choice or by circumstance.

Along with a divorce, crippling debt, or the death of spouse, downsizing is one of the events that often require estate cleanout services.

How Much Does an Estate Cleanout Cost?

When family members decide to make use of a professional estate cleanout service, it is natural to ask how much such a service is going to cost them. And this is even more critical if they are choosing to pay for the actual cleaning of the home after all the belongings, trash, and junk has been removed.

So, when it comes to determining the availability and cost of junk removal in Fairfax, the default move is to grab your phone and type in something like, “junk removal fairfax va” or “junk removal near me.”

And, while that’s certainly understandable, the problem is that it is difficult to know what service you should actually choose based solely on some search results on Google or elsewhere. Not all estate cleanout services are proficient with junk removal, nor are all junk removal services reliably competent with carrying out estate cleanout services.

Also, pricing can be elusive, as well.

No one firm will be able to provide you with a cost without knowing first what is involved and how much junk, debris, and unwanted items are going to be hauled away. In addition, pricing schemes vary between firms so either the weight of all your estate cleanout material is going to be significant, or the flat fees charged could vary.

When you choose to work with Junk King Fairfax, however, we can provide you with a free, no-obligation estimate based solely on the amount of room your estate cleanout materials will take up in our truck. And our pricing is upfront and transparent. Not only that, but there are no added charges nor hidden fees with our junk removal services.

How to Downsize and Get Rid of Extra Junk Without Financially Straining Yourself

When you decide to downsize your living situation, getting rid of all the junk you’ve been holding onto can be just as difficult as the act of moving itself. If you’re trying to avoid financial strain while also avoiding hefty fees from trash removal companies, there are ways to get rid of all your extra junk without spending too much money. Here are some tips on how to downsize your living situation and get rid of extra junk without financially straining yourself.

 

Determine Which Items Are EssentialDetermine Which Items Are Essential

The first step in downsizing your living situation is knowing which items are truly essential to your everyday life. The trick is to remember, essential doesn’t mean, would be nice to have. Things like extra dishes, clothes, and electronic devices are obviously important—but they may not be worth lugging everything across town if it means you can’t afford that sweet new apartment. Also, think about what you’ll need on a day-to-day basis in your new place; will you need furniture? Do you have any old appliances that could be donated or recycled? Will you want a mattress for guests? If so, then it’s important to look into mattress removal services before selling yours. You want to get rid of everything possible—and only take what’s essential.

Purge Items You Don’t Use On A Regular Basis

Before you sell anything, it’s important to organize your unwanted items so you can find them easily. When you’re downsizing your living situation, it might be tempting to get rid of anything and everything—but that could be a costly mistake. You might want junk removal assistance if any of these apply: too much junk, delicate or valuable items, or hard-to-reach locations.

Hiring a company like Junk King can help give you peace of mind while they remove old furniture or other things that aren’t serving a purpose in your life anymore. Before they get rid of your stuff, they’ll even let you keep items that hold sentimental value so you don’t lose sight of why these things were important, to begin with.

 

Sell Stuff That You Do Not Want To Take With YouSell Stuff That You Do Not Want To Take With You

When you’re downsizing, it’s important to let go of things that you just don’t need. Have a garage sale or look for a storage unit so that you can get rid of your stuff. Most cities have listings for cheap storage units available near where you live, so you should be able to find one reasonably easily. Make sure you take pictures of what you’re selling and post them on Craigslist or another online selling site before showing up with your stuff at a garage sale. That way, people will know what they are getting themselves into when they buy something from your sale! You can also look into using Facebook Marketplace to try and sell some of the larger, bulkier items.

Get Rid of Old Appliances and Furniture

Getting rid of old appliances or furniture can be easy—or hard, depending on what you have. If you’re trying to make extra cash, it may not be worth your time; instead, donate them (or drop them off at a charity) if they’re in decent shape. Or, if you plan on moving out soon and don’t want to lug your stuff around with you (good thinking), a junk removal service might make more sense. Whether you remove items yourself or hire someone else to do it for you depends on what kind of space limitations you have. For example, if your new residence is furnished with new appliances, saving your old refrigerator, washer, and dryer may cause you to rent a larger storage unit than you intended to. Over an extended period of time, these small additional costs will begin to add up.

 

Instead of holding onto these appliances, try to sell them or donate them if you can. If none of those options are feasible for you or you’re under a time crunch, you can always contact Junk King Fairfax for help. The appliance removal services they offer not only ensure that your old appliances are picked up in a timely fashion, but they will recycle as much of the appliances as possible to minimize the amount of waste that goes into our local landfills.

Donate What Isn’t Worth Selling

Before you start selling your extra junk, consider donating it. Some charities will even come pick up your donations, making it easier than ever to get rid of all those things you don’t need anymore. Many charities accept clothing, household items, and books – just be sure that you find a charity that’s right for you. To find local charitable organizations near you, try searching Google Maps using keywords like charity or donation center. Or check out Charity Navigator to find trustworthy nonprofits in your area (and on your doorstep).

 

There are also a number of popular mobile apps that allow you to quickly search for nearby non-profits in need. Just type donate into your app store and see what comes up. Be sure to call ahead to make sure they accept donations of furniture or other large items before driving across town! Donating is not only good for you financially but is great for your community as well. After donating, reward yourself with a nice dinner out!

 

Recycle Unusable ItemsRecycle Unusable Itemssizing

Old appliances, broken electronics, and other e-waste. What do they all have in common? They’re not junk when you put them in a proper recycling program. They’re treasures waiting to be transformed into something new. Don’t worry about doing it all yourself either; you don’t have to figure out how a computer works before you drop it off for recycling or decide if your vacuum needs more than just an air filter. Hire Junk King Fairfax for a complete cleanout service that will handle everything for you so that you can focus on moving forward instead of spending hours sorting through it all.

How To Get Your PC Ready for Computer Recycling

How To Get Your PC Ready for Computer Recycling

Ready for some scary information regarding computer usage and computer recycling? We’ve got you covered!

Believe it or not, if you are still regularly using a desktop PC, you’re not alone. While it may seem that laptops and tablets have pretty much swept away desktop computers, these trusty devices are still being used by millions. In fact, according to Google Analytics data, desktops were used for 35.7% of all website visits in the U.S. in 2020.

Although the numbers are shrinking, PCs and other desktop computers are still widely in use in America. According to Statista, as recently as 2019, over 47 percent of U.S. households had desktop computers.

And, for those who enjoy geeking out to statistics, DataReportal notes that,

“There were 298.8 million internet users in the United States of America in January 2021. The number of internet users in the United States of America increased by 11 million (+3.7%) between 2020 and 2021. Internet penetration in the United States of America stood at 90.0% in January 2021.”

But regardless of whether we use PCs, laptops, tablets, or simply our smartphones, they all have an end life and must be replaced eventually. This means we have to dispose of the old ones.

 

When It Comes to PCs and Laptops, Don’t Trash – RecycleWhen It Comes to PCs and Laptops, Don't Trash – Recycle

When you consider that we’ve been buying, using, and replacing desktops, then laptops, then tablets, and so on for more than 30 years now, that’s quite a lot of devices being thrown out. And the last place these electronic waste materials need to be is in a landfill.

This is why it is essential to recycle old computers!

Computer recycling is relatively easy today verse how things were just ten years ago, for example. Today there are several corporate and municipal programs across the country for recycling computers and other types of electronic waste, or e-waste. A quick search of “e-waste recycling near me” will usually bring you dozens of results, if not more.

However, it’s not simply a matter of finding a convenient and environmentally-friendly method of disposal. You should always take precautions beforehand to ensure you’re not also tossing out easily recoverable personal data and information.

Why is that? Because data pulled from old hard drives and personal devices like PCs often lead to identity theft. The good news is that it is relatively easy to protect your data from Identity theft.

There are many ways someone can illicitly recover your old data, even after you think you’ve handled your disposal safely. For example, dumpster diving may seem crude, and even a bit “old school,” but identity thieves employ all types of methods for finding and recovering tablets, laptops, and even old desktop computers that have been carelessly disposed of.

Making That Old PC Safe for DisposalMaking That Old PC Safe for Disposal

Stripping a computer of data can be somewhat difficult. However, for most users, there are additional steps they need to take to protect themselves and the environment.

When preparing a device for disposal, there are two main steps you want to do for successfully stripping your old computer. The first step involves creating a backup to avoid losing your files. You can then install or transfer this to a new device.

Second, you want to wipe out the hard drive using a secure method to make sure you’ve removed your personal information and applications beyond recovery.

Knowing how to wipe a hard drive clean depends somewhat on the type of device and which operating system your device is using. Here are steps for removing data from your system’s hard drive according to Norton:

Don’t just delete files from your computer

You might think moving your documents to the trash or recycle bin and then emptying these locations will permanently remove these files. Here’s the problem: This appears to delete the files but often leaves them where they were, merely hidden from view. Most data recovery programs – including those used by scammers and hackers — can recover these hidden files.

Use a program to wipe your drive

Special software programs can permanently erase your hard drive. If you use these programs, there’s little chance you’ll be able to recover your erased data. That’s good news: No one else can use data recovery software to recover your erased files.

Physically wipe your hard drive

If you want to double-ensure that your hard drive is clean, it’s time to take additional measures. An example? You can physically wipe the drive. Just remove your hard drive and take a rare earth magnet to it. A safer method? Use a screwdriver to dismantle the pieces of your hard drive to make it useless.

Do a fresh installation of the operating system

There’s another way to completely rewrite over your computer’s hard drive: You can complete a clean installation of the original operating system that came with the computer.

Computer Disposal Means Computer RecyclingComputer Disposal Means Computer Recycling

Less than 20 percent of all electronic devices and equipment get recycled in the United States. And most of this e-waste, including computers, ends up in landfills or is incinerated. And this can lead to the release of toxic and even deadly materials. These include lead, mercury, or cadmium that can seep into the soil, groundwater, and atmosphere.

Fortunately, proper computer recycling removes that threat to our environment while providing enormous benefits for the economy.

One Wikipedia entry notes that,

“Electronic recycling occurs primarily to recover valuable rare earth metals and precious metals, which are in short supply, as well as plastics and metals. These are resold or used in new devices after purification, in effect creating a circular economy.”

Recycling computers allows firms to recover valuable natural resources, like silver and gold, which can be reused. And recycling computers can include much more than a CPU.

As one website points out,

“These items contain significant amounts of recyclable materials that will remain hazardous in landfills for years if not recycled. The glass monitor, keyboard, plastic or aluminum casing, cables, CD-ROM drive, ray tube, power cord, circuit board, batteries, and printer cartridges are all recyclable computer materials.”

But how do you go about getting your computer and other electronic waste recycled?

Well, you could go to your old desktop – if you haven’t wiped the hard drive already! – search for “junk removal near me” or even “junk removal in Fairfax.” However, an even easier step would be to call Junk King Fairfax.

A Simple Guide to Office Junk Removal

In today’s business environment and job market, few owners or managers want to pull their available staff from the essential work they were hired for to make “dump runs” of office junk.

Not only is that an expensive option for taking care of office junk removal, but it’s also an increasingly difficult option given how many businesses are running on fewer staff.

According to the online news site InsideNoVa, the labor shortage is worsening locally. Older office buildings are struggling to find occupants, and remote work is here to stay. Those were the key takeaways from the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce’s 30th annual Economic Conference. This conference was held in January 2022 at George Mason University’s Arlington campus.

And it isn’t just office buildings that are feeling the pinch of a lingering labor shortage.

 

Fewer Employees, Remote Workers, Can Add Up to Excess Office JunkFewer Employees, Remote Workers, Can Add Up to Excess Office Junk

As one local news story from late 2021 reported,

“As businesses work to emerge from the pandemic, they’re now facing staffing and supply shortages — forcing some to reduce hours or even close down…

President of the Virginia Restaurant, Lodging, and Travel Association, Eric Terry, said they’re definitely seeing this trend lately. ‘I think, as people go into this, you know, they probably had some PPP money and some other things to help them survive,’ Terry said. ‘But now they’re going into the slower winter months, and I think you’re gonna see more closures even now.’ His association estimates that the pandemic has forced about 20% of Virginia’s businesses to cut back — or close entirely.”

One of the unanticipated results of the “perfect storm” of COVID-related worker shortages and the impact of the so-called Great Resignation is that businesses of all types are winding up with unused and unwanted office furnishings, supplies, and equipment. And it needs to be gotten rid of in many instances.

But businesses can’t spare the personnel to take of it.

The bottom line is that, even if you could handle your own office junk removal tasks, it is likely not to be very cost-effective to do so.

This is why Junk King Fairfax specializes in office junk removal.

Did you know that 51 percent of the average employee’s day is spent doing something that they don’t like doing? If you’re not taking note of this little-known fact, your employees may not be as happy with your company as you think they are. If they are spending so much of their days doing pointless things, trying to maneuver around junk, or trying to organize the mess around the office, it’s only a matter of time before they start looking for another job. Of course, they don’t want to go through that hassle. Chances are, they really like working for your company when they are not doing those specific tasks. You need to address the issues causing their unhappiness in a timely manner. If your business is cluttered with items that could go, then you need to start there. The space it creates can be a good place to start enhancing the breathing room of your employees. Take note of these eight key steps to get rid of the junk at your office to help your employees become happy again.

Step 1: Set Clear Organizational GoalsSet Clear Organizational Goals To Get Rid of the Junk At Your Office

Set clear organizational goals before you begin cleaning up the office. You should understand why it’s necessary and what you hope to achieve by doing so. Go through each room and decide what is essential to keep out, what can be put away to make more room, and what junk can go. Whether your goal is to organize or downsize the items you no longer need, this can accomplish both goals.

You want to create a list of what items are needed daily, what are only needed on occasion, and what you simply do not need anymore. The items you do not need anymore are what you should be getting rid of, while the items that you only need on occasion should be put in storage until you need them. By putting those items away, you have more space to move around, plus fewer business distractions.

Step 2: Decide What Stays and What Can Go

When looking at the items you only use on occasion, you need to decide if you want to keep what you have and store it, or if you will just buy it again when you need it. For some businesses, storage space is at a premium. If that is the case for you, then you need to do an inventory of your space and figure out what should stay, and what you need to get rid of. Make a list of all the items that are currently taking up space on your desk or in different places around the office. From there, you should decide which ones you are going to keep and which ones you are going to get rid of. You should also make a list of all the items that aren’t related to work, such as old receipts and unused gift cards. After you have created this list, you can begin to prioritize which ones should stay and which ones should go.

Step 3: Define Who Is In Charge

The next step is to decide who is in charge of the organizational process. This should be a person who is responsible for organizing the office and making sure that everything is being kept clean and in its place. That person may very well be you. However, if it is someone else, you should get them involved in the decision-making process. You should also make it clear who is responsible for keeping the office looking neat and organized when the junk removal process is complete. This person should be responsible for making sure that all the items on the “stay or go” list are kept in their appropriate places, and how often this task should be performed.

Step 4: Establish a Timetable

If you want to make sure that you are able to achieve all of the organizational goals that you have set for your company, you need to set a timetable. You can’t just promise to start cleaning up the office, make some progress, and then let it slip. The process needs consistency to be effective, and you need to make sure that your employees are aware of what is to come. You can do this by making it clear when the cleaning will take place and when it will be finished. It doesn’t matter if you only do this once a week—the important thing is for you to be consistent.

Step 5: Set Clear ExpectationsSet Clear Expectations

If you want to be successful at getting rid of all the junk in your office, you need to make sure that your employees are clear on what should be in their workspace and what should be out of it. This means making sure that they have access to the “stay or go” list. Plus, it also means making sure that they know where to put any items that fall into the go category of your list.

Step 6: Train Your Employees to Know Where to Put Your Company’s Junk

If you want your employees to clean up the junk, you’re going to have to train them to know where to put it. Set aside an area that will hold the junk until you have it removed. Some companies only need to go through and remove junk once every few years because they do not create much extra junk. Their items are always used regularly, or they simply do not use many items outside of a computer or specific set of machines. However, there are also companies that create regular junk that needs to be disposed of.

Depending on which category you fall into, you may need to set up different areas for junk. If you will have a company come in and remove junk from your Fairfax business regularly, then an easy to access spot is essential. If you will only have junk removed every year or two, the area should be a little less obvious and not anywhere customers or clients would see it.

Step 7: Hire a Fairfax Commercial Junk Removal Company

If you want to make your office a better place to work, you’re going to have to make a few more changes. And one of them is to make sure that your company’s junk is removed. Calling Junk King Fairfax allows you to have someone come in, pick up the junk from your office, and haul it away. You do not need to waste time or money having your employees do it. Plus, you do not have to risk anyone getting hurt trying to lift up heavy objects. Instead, you can go through, point to the junk you want removed, and be happy knowing it will be taken care of for you.

On top of having a reliable company that can come pick up the junk from your business, you also get the benefit of having a quote before you begin the process. Whenever you contact Junk King Fairfax, you will get a quote for the cost to come out, pick up the items you want disposed of, and to haul it all away. You do not have to lift anything from the spot you designate for pickup. You simply get to point and watch!

Step 8: Start Making Your Office a Better Place to WorkStart Making Your Office a Better Place to Work

The last important thing that you need to do is to work towards making your office a better place to work. This means making sure that your employees have the tools that they need to be successful in their new clean, organized office space. This might also mean providing your employees with the right technology and tools, as well as making sure that your company sticks to the set of organizational goals you created in the beginning of this process. By keeping up with these tasks, you begin making your office a cleaner, better, and more organized place to be.

The key here is to be thorough, and don’t skip any details. Ask yourself these questions to get started:

  • What is the purpose of my office junk?
  • Who is responsible for getting it out of the way?
  • What happens if it gets left behind?
  • What happens if it takes longer than two hours to get it out of the way?
  • What happens if it doesn’t get done?
  • What happens if it is not removed/ disposed of?

Keep that “stay or go” list updated, and make sure whoever you put in charge will check it regularly. Then, make sure they are going through and adhering to the timetable you set up. Once the junk is out of the way, making sure your employees feel as though they can discuss any issues also helps.

Turn to Junk King Fairfax to Help Clean the Extra Junk Out of Your Office

Look around your office. If you see clutter, mess, and items you simply do not need to have around all the time, you may need a full office clean out. A professional from Junk King Fairfax can walk you through the process and help you make sure that it happens as efficiently as possible.

You have the option of a one-time pickup, or you can schedule pickups at regular intervals. Should you find yourself in need of commercial junk removal between your normal pickup times, you can always call for an extra pickup. It makes life easier, plus it gives you the peace of mind knowing that your employees do not need to sit, surrounded by junk, any longer than necessary.

How Clean Out Services From Junk King Makes House Flipping Easier

How Clean Out Services From Junk King Makes House Flipping Easier

The housing market in the greater Fairfax region is hot and, with the expected increase in foreclosures and short sales, the market for house flipping promises to be strong. In fact, according to one source, Fairfax home prices were up 10 percent in December 2021 compared to the same month in 2020.

And a press release from Business Wire noted that,

“Less frenetic but still fast-paced is the prediction for the 2022 housing market in Northern Virginia which echoes national expectations, according to the Northern Virginia Association of Realtors® (NVAR) in its annual forecast produced in conjunction with George Mason University’s Center for Regional Analysis.”

Which means more great opportunities for flipping houses.

Flipping Houses 101How Clean Out Services and Flipping Houses Go Hand in Hand

So, what is “house flipping” exactly?

House flipping usually refers to the process of buyers purchasing distressed properties – houses on the brink of foreclosure or already owned by the bank – then fixing them up and hoping to resell them for a profit.

House flippers typically find these properties via foreclosures, bank short sales, or property auctions.

Because little more than available capital and a willingness to take risks are all that’s needed to get into the game, House flipping appeals to many who are not a realtor or real estate professionals. However, there are still a few things that people who are just starting out with flipping houses should know.

For example, experts agree that to be successful in flipping houses, you must spend your money wisely and invest in undervalued properties. However, these are usually the properties that require quite a bit of work, including junk removal.

In addition, there are several other essential tasks that are needed to be successful at the house flipping business.

Here are seven steps adapted from information found at the Rocket Mortgage® website:

  1. Know Your Neighborhood

You need to spend some time researching the real estate market and choosing the right location to invest in. It’s a good idea to work with a real estate agent who can advise you throughout this process.

  1. Use The 70% Rule to Plan Your Budget

This rule states that an investor should only pay 70% of the after-repair value (ARV) of a property minus the necessary repairs. The ARV is what the home is worth after it has been fully renovated.

  1. Assess Your Skill Set

Knowledge of construction, real estate, and design are good skills to have. It’s okay if you don’t have those skill sets yourself, but that means you need to know how to find the professionals who do.

  1. Finance Your Project

The next step is to figure out how you’ll finance your project. If you don’t have cash on hand to put toward the project, then you’ll want to get preapproved for a loan.

  1. Decide on And Buy Your House

Foreclosed, distressed, and fixer-upper homes are all good options to consider. But you’ll want to use a real estate agent and contractor to help you understand the extent of the work that needs to be done.

  1. Build Sweat Equity

Many entrepreneurs find that in the beginning, sweat equity is a necessary aspect of building a successful business. It’s what gives them the resources they need to keep the momentum to keep going.

  1. Flip the House

Once the repairs are complete, it’s time to resell the house. It’s best to with a real estate agent to help you list the house as they can list the house in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) database.

Junk Removal Service for House Flippers and Residential Clean Out Servicesdumpster rental in fairfax

Another great tip is to use a professional firm for all the junk removal that will be needed during your house flipping endeavor. Expert real estate clean out services are often required even before you make one repair or upgrade to a distressed property.

While the term refers to the financial state of the mortgage, a prospective house flipper might find themselves to be a bit distressed at the prospect of cleaning out all the debris, trash, and junk often found in a distressed property!

In addition, the small junk and assorted rubbish that is commonly left in vacated properties, you may also encounter old furniture that has been left behind as well as other larger items. The need for appliance disposal, for example, is not at all uncommon when cleaning out houses that have been hastily vacated, such as in a foreclosure situation.

And that’s just the junk removal services you need before you get started on your improvements for your real estate investment!

Depending on the extent of your repairs and upgrades, it is quite likely that you will need the services of professional construction debris removal, as well. House flippers may have the skills and tools to do their own work on the structure – investing “sweat equity” into their purchase. But, if not, they will contract it out to those who do.

The same holds true for junk removal. If you have a truck and experience dealing with junk loading, hauling, and disposal, then you could conceivably do it yourself.

Except you shouldn’t have to. Remember, with house flipping, time is of the essence, and wasting your time with junk removal and disposal is not cost-effective.

This is why Junk King Fairfax specializes in estate clean out services and construction debris removal.

House Flipping and Staging Your Junk

Having said this, we understand that there are times and situations where it does make sense to have a place to put all the debris, trash, rubbish, junk, and other items while working on a project. And piling it all in the driveway or the attached garage is never really a good idea.

But there are alternatives.

One of those is that folding, fabric “dumpster” bag known as a Bagster® bag that you can buy, fill up, and then have hauled away. There are a few major disadvantages to this option, however. The bag only holds three cubic yards of waste, which is less than a pickup truck load. And there’s a weight limit, but no way to know how heavy your load actually is.

In addition, there are strict limits when it comes to picking up your loaded bag, too. It must be at least five feet from any structures, fences, trees, vehicles, or other objects and at least 18 feet of vertical clearance around and above the bag.

At Junk King Fairfax, we’ve got a better idea.

Why bother with a few cubic yards of holding capacity when you can have a user-friendly, easy-to-access MINI Dumpster from Junk King that will manage up to 12 cubic yards of junk?

And, unlike most industrial dumpster bins, our MINI Dumpster is driveway-safe because of its specially designed polymer wheels. That means it can be placed on your driveway, on the street next to your curb, or in your RV parking pad next to the house. In fact, you can have it placed anywhere without fear of damaging concrete or asphalt.

Another great thing about our dumpster rental container is that it’s only four feet high, which makes it easy to load from the sides. However, it has double doors on the end for complete access, and because it’s only eight feet wide and eleven feet long, it only takes up as much space on the ground as a full-size pickup truck.

The bottom line here is that when it comes to the junk removal and construction debris removal tasks during your house flipping project, you have a few great options from an expert service provider – Junk King Fairfax.

How Junk King Is Making Junk Removal Easier This Year!

How Junk King Is Making Junk Removal Easier This Year!

One of the traditional activities that many people take part in every New Year is to make resolutions.

How junk removal could be the best resolution you make this year! While New Year’s resolutions are often made with good intentions as well as a serious and renewed resolve to follow through, many estimates tell us that approximately 80 percent of New Year’s resolutions fail.

What kind of resolutions do most people make every new year?

Surveys have shown that the most common resolutions include:

  • exercising more
  • eating healthier
  • saving money
  • and losing weight

In addition, for some of us, we resolve to clean up our living spaces and get rid of all the clutter. And while we may not make that an “official” New Year’s resolution, we still make an effort to follow through on the goal.

But if we truly take a deep dive into decluttering and getting rid of all the unwanted or unneeded junk in our homes, we can often find that we’re a bit overwhelmed with all the junk that has piled up. And then we have to figure out what to do with it all.

This is why Junk King Fairfax specializes in making junk removal easy for our customers.

When Your Junk Removal Needs Require a Junk Removal Service

Junk can mean a lot of things to a lot of people.

For some, their “junk” is anything and everything they’ve accumulated over the years that they no longer want, need or have room for. And this can include plenty of usable items like clothing, electronics, and even small appliances and furniture.

For many others, junk is simply the broken, unusable, and trashed items and materials in and around their homes.

However, regardless of the state of the items or the size, your junk still has to be removed and disposed of somehow. And the reality is that junk removal can involve much more than the average resident in Fairfax County has the resources for.

How’s that?

Well, when it comes to large, bulky junk items, for example, one of the first things you need is some help. And a truck.

What kind of “large, bulky junk items” are we talking about? For example, anything that won’t fit in the back of your family car. The truth is that typical residential junk removal often includes hauling items that require large trucks and two or more people to move them.

In other words, typical junk removal services include things like:

It is undoubtedly true, of course, that if you have access to a pickup truck and someone who is willing to give you a hand, large junk removal can be a DIY task.

But it’s not easy. And not everyone can do it themselves, which is why a junk removal service is needed.

So, You Want to Do Your Own Junk Removal?Bagster's, while effective, cannot hold as much as a Junk King Dumpster

At Junk King Fairfax, we get it.

Sure, we built our business on providing the absolute best junk removal services in the greater Fairfax region. But we also understand that there are times and situations when it makes more sense to remove junk over a period of days and then have it all taken away.

And there are options for that.

Some folks will go to their local municipal waste management company and rent one of their massive, industrial-type dumpsters for the task. The problem with this approach is that those dumpsters are often too large and often quite expensive.

Others will opt for services like a Bagster® for their DIY junk removal project. While this might seem like a convenient and cost-effective solution for your large junk removal needs, people need to keep in mind that these collapsible, fabric bags can only hold so much.

The Bagster® will hold just over 3,000 pounds of junk and can hold three cubic yards. While this may be sufficient for a small junk removal project, you’re not likely to get too many old, unusable kitchen appliances or three days’ worth of remodeling debris in one of those.

And, at Junk King Fairfax, we understand that, which is why we offer a better option.

  • Do you have a large house cleanout project going into this new year?
  • Are you cleaning out you’re your attic, basement, garage, and closet?
  • Maybe you’re cleaning up and clearing out your backyard, side yards, and outdoor property?

Your best choice for loading and staging your junk and debris is with a rental dumpster from Junk King. Our renowned MINI Dumpster is an efficient, conveniently sized, and user-friendly self-service dumpster rental. And our dumpster rental service provides fair and flexible pricing for all kinds of DIY junk removal projects.

If you choose to go the self-service route to get rid of your household junk this new year, keep in mind that dumpster rental companies use different pricing models. But at Junk King, we only have simple and transparent prices, terms, and conditions.

Keep in mind, too, that some dumpster rental options have limited capacity, while others are simply far too much for what most folks need in front of their homes. But that’s not the case with the Junk King MINI Dumpster.

Unlike the smaller Bagster®, the Junk King dumpster holds up to 12 cubic yards of junk loaded to the brim, and that’s equivalent to almost five large pickup truck loads. And, unlike some companies, we only charge by volume, not by weight, which means your cost is simply based on how much of the dumpster your junk takes up.

When you choose to rent a MINI Dumpster from Junk King Fairfax, you will always receive friendly service, convenient drop-off and pickup that is on-time, and with fair pricing.

And, of course, if you prefer to have someone else come and do all the heavy lifting, we can do that, as well!

When you choose full-service junk removal from Junk King Fairfax, you’ll get friendly service from real professionals. And we make it a goal to make your life easier with fast, dependable junk hauling services.

 

We do all the hard work… you just point, and it’s gone. Easy as that!

Bagster vs A Dumpster Rental from Junk King

At Junk King Fairfax we know that our MINI Dumpster debris bins are an excellent choice for almost every “do it yourself” junk and debris cleanup project. And these unique roll-off dumpsters are driveway-safe and user-friendly.

As many homeowners and residential contractors know, when it comes to getting rid of renovation debris, excess trash, or any other kind of junk, a dumpster rental can be a convenient way to load and remove it.

But there’s also the Bagster® Bag from Waste Management.

MINI Dumpster Rental and Bagster® Bags Options

We know that you have options when it comes to dumpster rentals. And for your junk removal needs you may want to consider the differences between our MINI Dumpster and Bagster® Bags.

 

What About the Bagster® Bag?

WM Bagster® Bags are a collapsible bag debris disposal solution that are can be convenient and fairly easy to use. The bag has a low profile, when filled, and fits easily on a curb or driveway.

At four feet deep, eight feet long, and two and half feet high, the Bagster® Bag can hold up to three cubic yards of waste or debris, as long as it’s less than a maximum weight of about 3,300 pounds.

And how much is that, really?

In terms of volume, that’s how much you can get in a compact pickup truck with a seven foot long bed, that’s filled to the top of the cab.

And what are you allowed to put in a WM Bagster® Bag?

You can load it up with things like household junk, old furniture, and renovation debris, but probably not yard waste.

The real problem, however, is that WM doesn’t allow items such as e-waste. For example, let’s say you have a half dozen old TVs that you have finally decided to get rid of. You searched “TV recycling near me” and now you’ve decided that just using a Bagster® bag would be a straightforward way to go.

Except that you can’t use it for old appliances, TVs, and other e-waste. Which simply means an additional trip to a donation center or some facility that manages electronic recycling.

Enter the Junk King MINI Dumpster

First, it’s important to keep in mind that our MINI Dumpster is driveway-safe with specially designed polymer wheels. This means it can be placed anywhere you need it on your property without fear of damaging concrete. Unlike the Bagster, our dempster rental units are large capacity, steel debris bins.

Also, unlike the Bagster® Bag, the MINI has steel sides and won’t collapse when you are trying to fill it. Yet, our dumpster rental container is only four feet high, so it’s easy to load. And because it’s only eight feet wide and eleven feet long, it takes up no more room than a full-size pickup truck.

But it can hold far more than a Bagster® Bag or a full-size pickup truck.

In fact, with its substantial 12-cubic yard debris capacity, it can hold the equivalent of five full-size pickup truck loads with room left over. In fact, it has four times the capacity of a WM Bagster® Bag.

And weight is not a consideration.

And, by the way, you can put all the TVs, electronics, and appliances you can fit in it!

Of course, you can’t use it for hazardous wastes, but you can put just about anything and everything else in our dumpster rental.

Unlike some dumpster rental services, Junk King never charges by the weight of the load. In fact, we only charge you for the amount of space taken you use in the MINI Dumpster.

Another Advantage of a MINI Dumpster Rental: Junk King’s Transparent Pricing

With Junk King Fairfax junk hauling services, it doesn’t matter if you choose our full-service junk removal or our self-service dumpster rental option. The good news is that you still only pay only for the amount of space your junk items take up in our truck or MINI Dumpster.

That’s not how it works with companies that provide rental dumpsters, Instead, they often charge a single price or, worse, they charge by the weight of the junk load.

Not with Junk King. We provide flexible pricing options with our dumpster rentals, which gives you better value and fair pricing.

So, how does it work?

Pricing for our MINI Dumpster rental is made up of three tiers of prices based on how full your rental dumpster is when you’re done using it. These tiers are referred to as:

-Minimum

-Half-full

-Full

 

Our minimum price is the lowest fee we charge to drop off and pick up a MINI Dumpster. And, if you only have a few items or a small quantity of debris that fills less than a third of the dumpster, you’ll only be charged the minimum price.

If your unwanted items and junk materials fill the MINI Dumpster to about half full, you’ll only be charged the half-full price. And, if your rental dumpster is close to full or up to the brim, we will then charge the full price.

MINI Dumpsters are especially convenient for project cleanups like house cleanouts or renovations. When we deliver the MINI Dumpster to your home or place of work, you typically keep it for three days before we return to pick it up at a pre-scheduled time.

But there are times when three days isn’t quite long enough, and we understand that, too.

So, for those longer projects or if things get behind or delayed, we can also arrange for MINI Dumpster rental periods of five days or even seven days, if needed.

And we will never surprise you with any hidden or added fees!
