Fort Lauderdale Hot Tub Removal

As a prospective homebuyer, you’re entitled to a home inspection. Any property that is sold “as is” should be avoided at all costs! A thorough home inspection will reveal all the issues with that home. Some of these could be minor fixes you can take care of once you move in. Other problems could be big enough to require a reduction in price. After all, if the place needs a new roof or wiring, you shouldn’t pay full price for that. Then there are all the cosmetic issues you’ll have to contend with like repainting, removing ugly wallpaper or pulling stained carpet. All easy fixes. Things get a little complicated when you have to remove bigger objects like a backyard hot tub. Fortunately, you’ve got a company like Junk King standing by to lend a hand or two with your hot tub removal.

A hot tub is a great selling feature for a home. However, if it has been years since that hot tub has been used, then it is going to be in rough shape. There is also the “creepiness” factor to consider. No matter how well intentioned the previous owners might be, you don’t necessarily want to take a soak in a tub that has seen a lot of “soaks.” It might be more efficient to remove the hot tub and bring in an updated and 100% clean model. That is where Junk King comes into play.

When you hire Junk King for any junk hauling job, you’ll be getting a two-man moving crew and big truck. That will matter a lot if you’re dealing with a hot tub removal. The Junk King crew is going to have to take apart that tub, piece by piece. Don’t worry; they’ll have the tools and the training to get the job done. Once it is disassembled, all those parts can be loaded onto the back of the truck for proper disposal. Along with your hot tub removal, you can utilize this same appointment to get rid of all kinds of other unwanted objects. This is a great chance to really clean up your yard and home of all its clutter.

As for pricing, you’re only going to be charged a single fee based on how much space your junk will take up on the back of the Junk King truck. And because the crews like to pack things in tight, you’re never going to be paying a huge amount! Hot tub removal is a breeze when you bring Junk King in on the project.

Fort Lauderdale Mattress Disposal

Did you know that Fort Lauderdale has an Environmental Crimes Unit? It’s like “Law & Order SVU” but for trash. Here’s how they describe themselves: “The City of Fort Lauderdale’s Environmental Crimes Unit focuses investigative resources on cases that involve negligent, knowing, or willful violations of city, state, and federal environmental law. Generally speaking, “knowing” violations are those that are deliberate and not the product of an accident or mistake. Knowledge of the specific statutes or regulations that prohibit the wrongful conduct is not required. When a violator is aware that the law prohibits the wrongful conduct, the violation is said to be “willful” and, usually, criminal penalties are imposed.” Translation: if you’re dumping trash that you shouldn’t be, the ECU is going to nail you!

You might be considering some illegal dumping without even realizing it. Anytime you put something out on the curb in the hopes that it will just get picked up, you’re illegally dumping. Sure, there are some “collectors” who prowl the neighborhood picking up certain items but there is no guarantee that is going to happen. This is why you might often see pieces of furniture, television sets and mattress on the sidewalk. This also happens when folks move out of apartment and leave stuff behind. It’s still illegal. You can avoid all of that with a single call to Junk King.

Junk King is a company of professional junk haulers who know how to handle something like your mattress disposal. You could be keeping an old mattress in the garage or down the basement because you know it can’t be dumped on the sidewalk. Now, that mattress can be hauled away by a friendly and hard working crew. Junk King will be sending over two movers who will carry that mattress out from wherever you’re keeping it stored. They will do the same for any other bulky or heavy object you want to get rid of. On the same appointment for your mattress disposal, Junk King will remove appliances, e-waste, sofas and boxes of junk.

The good news is that Junk King isn’t going to automatically dump your mattress in a landfill. Instead, they might drop it off at a recycling center. That way it can be torn apart and the components reused. Whether you just need mattress disposal or a total home clean out, Junk King is the way to go.
