Chico CA Appliance Recyclers

Not everyone is scoring a great deal on a flatscreen television this holiday season. There are plenty of bargains to be had on things like washing machines, dryers, dishwashers and refrigerators. If you’re going to “self-gift” a major kitchen appliance, then you should also consider setting up the removal of your old appliance. The best company to hire for that task is Junk King. They are the perfect appliance recyclers.


Since they began collecting junk over ten years ago, Junk King has dedicated itself to a green way of doing things. Yes, they were green long before it was cool! Their eco-friendly disposal policy is rooted in the notion of keeping as much collected junk out of landfills as possible. The only thing junk can do in a landfill is rust and decompose. When that happens, harmful toxins can be released into the air, water and soil. Maybe one old fridge wouldn’t cause much damage but if you add in all the old refrigerators from everyone in Chico, then you’re talking a serious potential health risk. Instead, Junk King will see to it that your unwanted stuff ends up at the right appliance recyclers.

You don’t have to do the actual recycling work to call yourself a recycler. You just have to make sure that the stuff gets to the right place. Junk King has set up partnerships with many local recyclers. They know who all the players are and what they’re looking for.

It’s a much more efficient process to turn your old appliances over to Junk King rather than trying to take on that job for yourself. That would require hiring movers, renting a truck and then driving to those recycling facilities, which could be hours away. Junk King takes care of all of that. Best of all, they can clear out your appliances and get you back to your day in less time than it takes to check in with your Facebook friends!

Junk King’s recycling philosophy extends to charities as well. They might not be able to take in appliances but they would certainly appreciate things like old clothes, furniture, bedding and other household goods. Once again, Junk King can make sure your unwanted stuff doesn’t go to waste. To keep things going green, let Junk King become your personal appliance recyclers and junk haulers!

Chico California Stove Removal

For your next stove, you have to pick between gas or electric, countertop or free-standing, slide-in or drop-in. Sound confusing? Not really. Depending on your current kitchen configuration you might only have one way to go. In other words, just because you “inherited” a stove doesn’t mean you have to stick with it; you just might have to stick with the type of stove you buy. Of course, you could opt for a complete kitchen remodel and then you can have your pick of stoves. Before going down that road, consider these options:

The cooktop and wall oven set offers a lot of flexibility because they aren’t connected. Your stovetop can be in one area while your oven can be further away. This type of set up requires a bit more installation expertise. The price range for the cooktops is $250 to $1,500 and $400 to $2,000 for the wall oven units.

Freestanding ranges are the single unit ovens or an all-in-one model. These are way easier to install but you have to make sure your cabinet measurements are exact. There is a standard width for these stoves but it’s always best to double check. These models can cost you anywhere between $700 and $1,599.

As for gas versus electric, with the gas ovens these are quick to power up and there is no doubt when they are turned on! Gas ovens can cost from $250 to $21,000. Comparing side by side with an electric oven will show you that the gas ovens are a bit pricier. However, they are cheaper to run so they can pay for themselves in no time at all.

No matter which new stove you settle on you’ll still have to get rid of your old stove. Here is where a company like Junk King Gold Country will be a huge help. When you contract Junk King for any type of removal job, they’ll be sending over a two-man crew and huge truck to get the job done. This is vital for something like taking out an old stove. Just have the mop ready for when that stove is taken away!

There is nothing wrong with hiring Junk King to remove a single bulky item like a stove but as long as they’re making the trip why not load them up with all the other stuff you want to get rid of? This is the a golden opportunity to clean out your garage or attic. Say hello to Junk King Gold Country and good-bye to your junk for good!

Lawn Mower Disposal in Chico California

In lawn mowing circles, there is a never ending debate as to whether it is more efficient to mow in rows or spirals. This being the age of “too much free time” some math geeks and puzzle makers got together to put the debate to the test. Here’s what they came up with: “On a square 16-foot by 16-foot lawn, both the spiral and row techniques take a total of 30 turns; 14 left and 16 right for the rows, and 30 right turns for the spiral.

One could argue that to mow in rows, there are half as many turns—when you get to the end of a row you make two 90-degree turns, which you could also count as a single 180-degree turn. Still, the total number of angular degrees you turn is in either case is the same.” Now that the debate has been settled it’s time to spray on the sunscreen and get to mowing.

If you’ve got a big property then a rider mower is the best way to cut the grass. It’s also the most fun! As for the push-type of mower, you might want to consider tossing out the old gas guzzler for a rechargeable electric model. You can even go with the always eco-friendly rotary tumbler. That’s more pushing work for you but in turn you’ve be getting a great aerobic workout every time you cut the grass.

No matter which type of model you prefer you should really only have one lawn mower on your property. A second mower that is old, rusty and not working is nothing to be hanging onto. The same could be said for luggage that is busted, furniture that isn’t used or appliances that you’ve replaced. Add to that old the outdate computers, copiers and monitors and suddenly you’ve found yourself surrounded by junk. How did that happen? Relax. We’ve all got piles of stuff we should toss out but just don’t have the chance. Now Junk King Gold Country can ride to the rescue and give you the opportunity to turn your home into a complete junk free zone.

After you’ve given a Junk King supervisor the chance to estimate how much space your junk will take up on their truck, you can set up a pickup appointment. That supervisor needs to see your junk first because that’s how they’ll be charging you: by the amount of space your junk will take up on the truck. On the day of the removal, that’s the price you’ll be paying. No extras. The Junk King Gold Country crew will cart off all your stuff on the back of the truck they provide. You can help by piling everything in your driveway or you can leave it right where it is.

All the Junk King crew cares about is getting all of your clutter out! Call them today to find out how they can remove your old lawn mower and all the rest of your junk.

Chico & Davis CA Junk Removal Prices

Who wouldn’t like to have a little extra cash in their pocket? Saving money doesn’t have to mean going without or radically altering your lifestyle. It really comes down to a matter choices. For instance, when was the last time you considered switching banks? If you’re like most folks you’ve probably grown accustomed to doing a lot of banking online or at an ATM. That doesn’t mean your bank still isn’t charging you fees. Why not shop around to see if you can save money on those fees. Twenty dollars a month adds up to $240 a year. Wouldn’t you have a better use for that money then paying a bank for the privilege of your being their customer?

Around the home you can turn stuff off that you’re not using. This goes for lights and the television. Just because you’re home doesn’t mean you have to light up the house or keep a TV running in every room. Cutting back on your electricity will have you saving money each month on your power bills.

Pay attention to customer rewards. There are many shops which become our “favorites” but if those shops aren’t offering the kinds of rewards as other shops then you need to think about switching. Some grocery stores are offering money off on gas at partner gas stations. Other businesses have a frequent buyer program which helps you unlock coupons or free stuff. That’s where you should be shopping or dining out!

Speaking of dining out, don’t! Instead of going to dinner with friends invite them over for a potluck dinner. It’s a lot more fun and gets everyone involved in the night in a unique way.

Try to curb your impulse buying. If you see something that is not a necessity that you want to buy try waiting 30 days and see if you still want it. Chances are the impulse will have passed and you’ll put that money to better use. This holds true with credit card purchases as well. The more you can pay down a debt the better off you’ll be.

Another way to save money with smart choices is with junk removal. If you’ve got a bunch of bulky items you want to toss out your best bet is hiring Junk King Gold Country. With Junk King you’re only going to be charged by the amount of space your junk will take up on their truck. That means you won’t be paying labor costs, dumping fees or truck rental. If you price out those items then junk removal becomes a very expensive proposition. It doesn’t have to be that way when you’ve got Junk King Gold Country on your side. Start saving money today.

Chico Air Conditioner Disposal

An air conditioner is a lot like a piano: Once you get it you’re almost always stuck with it. This is because the typical AC is such a bulky and heavy item it’s hard to move around let alone throw away in the garbage. There was a time not too long ago when televisions were heavy objects too but that has all changed thanks to modern design improvements. No such luck with the air conditioner. It’s always going to weight a ton and you’ll always need two people to get it in and out of a window. So, what to do if you want to get rid of your old clunky AC?  Simple: call Junk King Gold Country.

Junk King’s goal is to help you get rid of the stuff you can’t throw out in the weekly garbage pickup. Your old air conditioner would certainly qualify. If you were to do a little research you might find that there are plenty of drop-off centers that can insure that you’re air conditioner will be properly disposed of. That’s important because there are a lot of elements in an AC that could be deemed hazardous if they are left to “leak out.”

The real problem with those drop-off centers is that you have to do all the work. You need to get someone to help remove the AC from your window, carry it out of your home or apartment and then load it into your car. Hopefully, you have a big enough trunk otherwise you’re in real trouble. With Junk King Gold Country you won’t have to worry about any of that. The Junk King crew will do all the heavy lifting. You just have to point to the window and tell them to “Take it out!”

Along with your AC, this could be the perfect opportunity to get rid of some other bulky items you might be holding onto. Maybe you’ve got an old sofa or mattress in need of disposal. Perhaps it’s something even bigger like a stove or fridge. Once again, Junk King can come to the rescue and make sure those pieces are disposed of properly.

There are many recycling centers around Chico and each one serves a different function. Junk King knows who does what. If they need to make drop-offs at several locations that won’t matter to them. It’s all part of the job and part of the price. You’ll only be charged for the amount of space your junk takes up on their truck not how many stops they have to make or hold long they’ll be in traffic. This makes working with Junk King one of the best bargains in Chico. What do you have to get rid of? Call Junk King and say goodbye to your junk today!

Clear Home Clutter & Junk in Chico California

There must be something wired into our DNA that makes us all a hoarder. Sure there are little hoarders who cram their closets with shoes or who can’t throw away a loose button. Then there are extreme hoarders whose lives become overwhelmed with their “collections.” That’s when holding onto junk has become a safety hazard. Often the older we become the easier it is to simplify our lives through downsizing. After decades of lawn mowing, wouldn’t it be nice to move into a place where the lawns are taken care of for you? Not only can downsizing free up more of your time, it’s going to free up more of your money. Yes, most downsizing is going to mean a move to a smaller place but that’s a good thing. Of course, downsizing doesn’t necessarily mean you have to move but consolidate. In other words, make the most out of the space you have by getting rid of all the useless clutter.

How do you know if something is useless? Pick an item in your home, any item. Then ask yourself: Have I used this in the past year? Am I going to use this? Bottom line: can you live without that thing? If so then you don’t need it in your life and it should be tossed out. Look at this way: most folks only really utilize about 30% of what they have in their home. The rest is either for decorations or taking up space.

Consider the dining room. Yes, it’s nice to have a place where the family can gather but if you only use that room on Thanksgiving and Christmas are you really getting your money’s worth from that space. Moving into a smaller home without a large dining room means you’ll be saving on mortgage, rent and energy bills. You’re not sacrificing with downsizing but improving your quality of life.

If the task of getting rid of all your useless stuff becomes overwhelming, have no worry. Junk King Gold Country is standing by to help. One call to Junk King and you’ll see how easy it is to get rid of your stuff before making a move. If you want to downsize by clearing out a garage or spare room Junk King can help. With those open spaces you could rent them out and bring in more money.

After calling Junk King Gold Country, a team supervisor will come out to your home for a free on site estimate. During that time you’ll show them all the junk you want removed. You don’t have to lift a finger except to point to the junk. The JK supervisor will then provide you with an estimate for the job based on the amount of space your junk will take up on their truck. That’s a price that can’t be beat. Once you agree, you’ll set up an appointment for the Junk King crew to do the real work. As soon as your junk is taken away, you can look forward to clutter free and downsized life.

Chico Appliance Disposal

The Better Business Bureau has been tasked with the mission to make sure that every licensed business in the country adheres to a certain level of standards when it comes to dealing with customers. This agency takes in a lot of customer complaints about businesses both large and small and helps consumers get satisfaction when warranted.

In the Chico, CA area there are just two certified appliance recycling facilities approved by the government.

Instead you find some corner on your property for that appliance spend out the rest of its days. What happens next is easy to guess: it’s just going to get covered in rust. That in turn could lead to potential hazardous situation.
