Junk Removal FAQs In Houston

We’ve all got junk around our homes. The question then becomes, “Do you want to get rid of it once and for all?” Junk King Houston can show you the way.

What does Junk King take away?

As a professional junk removal service, Junk King is equipped to take away most of the unwanted stuff you’re keeping in storage around your property. That includes items such as furniture, appliances, electronics, clothes, boxes, household items, computers and televisions. The Junk King crew assigned to your junk removal project can also do a sweep through your yard to take away things like tires, auto parts, lumber scraps, wood, fencing, patio furniture, grills and lawnmowers.

Is there anything you can’t take away?

Because of state regulations, we’re not allowed to transport hazardous materials such as gas, propane, paint, solvents and other chemicals. Those need to be disposed of at certified hazmat facilities. We can help you find the nearest one to your home.

Does Junk King recycle?

Absolutely! Since starting Junk King back in 2005, recycling has been a huge part of the operation. We’ve managed to divert over 60% of all the junk we collect away from local landfills. Instead, your stuff could end up getting recycled or reused. There are plenty of Houston charities that can fix up an old sofa or appliance. You don’t even have to ask the crew to recycle, they’re going to do it anyway!

Are your crews insured?

All of our Junk King movers are licensed and insured. They’ve also been trained with the proper lifting and moving techniques. The Junk King crew will treat your walls and floors as if it they were their own.

What if I wanted to rent a dumpster instead?

You can do that but you need to know it could cost you more and force you to do all the work. Having a dumpster means you have to do the loading yourself. If you’re tossing out some debris from a small remodeling job or a garage cleanout, you might be able to handle that. But when you get into situations where you’re removing large pieces of furniture or heavy objects, you’ll wish you had the Junk King crew working for you. Plus, with a dumpster you might be required to secure a permit. You’ll also find that your neighbors are dumping at lot of their trash into the container you’re paying for.

If you want your junk removal handled the right way, then Junk King is the only call you need to make.

Labor Day Preparation Junk Pickup In Houston

Although Labor Day started in America, there are other countries that have their version of an annual day off for workers.
