Don’t Turn Your Houston Home Into A Storage Unit

Storage units are big business. It’s also a sign of how much stuff we like to hold onto. A storage unit makes the most sense when you are moving from one place to another and simply don’t have the room to keep extra “things.” Of course, if you’re keeping stuff in a storage unit for longer than six months, it is clear you don’t really need those things in the first place. On the other hand, if you have room in your home you can save money on a storage unit by keeping those unwanted items in your garage, attic or basement. You still won’t be using those things; you just won’t be paying for them either. Wouldn’t it make better sense to get rid of that stuff and avoid turning your home into a storage unit? You can get there with a little help from Junk King.

Junk King are the professional junk haulers who are part of a national chain. As a business, Junk King has been removing rubbish since 2005. Houston residents have been turning to Junk King to help remove tons of clutter. When we say “tons” we mean that literally. As a test, stand in your driveway with the garage door open and just gaze into that space. What do you see that you can get rid of? Exercise machines that nobody uses? A ping-pong table? Boxes of clothes that have been outgrown? Broken toys? That’s just with looking. Imagine if you go poking around in the boxes you’ve got stacked up. You could find that the majority of stuff you have in the garage could be hauled away by Junk King.

That same kind of inspection can be done throughout your home. Keep in mind that whatever you find to get rid of you don’t have to move. The Junk King crew will go to your junk and take it from there.

One of the big benefits of Junk King is something you have nothing to do with. That would be the company’s recycling program. Everything they collect goes through some level of scrutiny to determine if it can be donated or recycled. It’s all part of the Junk King package. Say good-bye to the storage unit and hello to a home free of clutter thanks to Junk King.

Houston Hoarder Cleanup Help

When Junk King says, “We’ll do all the work” they really mean that. Nowhere is that more evident than with an extreme hoarder cleanup project. A clinical hoarder is described as someone who has an emotional connection to junk. They simply can’t throw anything away. Most hoarders live in secret until their health becomes compromised or a loved one steps in to help. Walking into a hoarder’s home can be extremely challenging. Thankfully, there is a company like Junk King standing by to help with this type of cleanout.

Most Junk King junk removal appointments only need the standard two-man team to get the job done. Those workers will move very quickly to lift and load whatever you’re tossing out. It really only takes a few minutes to load up some old furniture or appliances. Before you know it, your junk will be gone and you can get back to your day. Then there is the hoarder cleanup situation. This is where Junk King will dispatch all their crews to complete the assignment. As with all Junk King appointments, you won’t have to box or bag any of the trash. Let the pros from Junk King handle that.

If you’re helping a loved one with a hoarding problem you might be embarrassed by the scope of the garbage piles. Don’t be. The Junk King crews have seen all kinds of trash heaps. All they care about is getting it all loaded up for disposal. Obviously, the hoarder cleanup jobs are going to take longer to finish. However, you won’t be paying any extra labor costs. Your fee will be based on how much space your junk will take up on the back of the Junk King truck. In the case of a hoarder cleanup that could mean filling up the entire truck. If more trucks are needed, Junk King will be happy to oblige.

Junk King’s recycling policy will still be in effect with a hoarder cleanup. Any item that the crews find that can be recycled or donated they’ll set aside. It might mean an extra drop off but that’s part of the complete package.

Helping your loved one clean up their mess could also motivate you to get rid of your unwanted stuff. Whether it’s a total hoarder cleanup or a small garage decluttering, Junk King is the only way to go.
