Avoid Yard Sale Frustration – Clear Your Clutter with Junk King Houston

Holding a weekend yard sale might allow you to get rid of some of your unwanted stuff. However, it is very rare for a yard sale to clear away everything. Sure, you might be ready to toss out some of the smaller stuff but if you’ve been eager to get rid of things like furniture, appliances, e-waste and clothes that might require the kind of help you can only get from Junk King.

Junk King is part of a national chain of professional junk haulers. Technically, you could schedule a junk removal appointment with Junk King at the end of your yard sale. This would guarantee you wouldn’t have to bring anything else back into your house, but why go through all the bother of the sale when the goal is to get rid of it all? The great thing about hiring Junk King for your junk removal is that your stuff won’t automatically go to waste.

The Junk King crews have been trained to sort through whatever they collect to find those things that can be donated or recycled. In the case of your yard sale stuff, that could mean everything gets dropped off at a local charity thrift shop. This absolutely counts as recycling and that means your carbon footprint will be reduced without you lifting a finger.

The stuff you can’t get rid of at a yard sale would be all the broken objects. Nobody is going to take a sofa with flatten cushions or a giant tube television that isn’t HD. Plus, there could be all kinds of things stacked up around your backyard like tires, auto parts and construction waste that can’t be tossed out in the trash. Give it all to Junk King. They’ll know how to dispose of it in a responsible manner.

As for cost, you’ll find out that Junk King is extremely affordable. You’ll only be charged a flat rate based on how much space your junk will occupy on the back of the truck. This is a one-time charge that covers all the labor including any time it would take to dismantle something like a grill or swing set. Yard sales won’t help your clear your clutter but Junk King can get the job done!

Houston Computer Monitor & Printer Recycling

The difference between an old computer and a new one can be startling. Most American homes have a least one type of computer that can handle basic needs like sending email or surfing the web. However, with today’s computers, watching movies, playing games, making video phone calls and processing at lightening speeds are all standard. If you spend any amount of time on a computer, you owe it yourself to work with an updated model. That also holds true for a computer monitor and printer. Before you upgrade, make sure you backup. Once your new computer is up and running and you’ve got that backup secure on an external hard drive, then there is no reason why you should hold onto that unit. You can’t throw it out in the trash because it is e-waste and that can’t go into a landfill. Instead, it has to be disposed of in the right way. That would mean turning it over to Junk King.

Junk King is the professional junk hauling company that specializes in handling e-waste. Along with your old computer monitor, printer, fax machine or copier, Junk King can also collect an outdated television set, DVD player or VHS machine. All of this e-waste will be dropped off at a certified recycling center to handle the dismantling. Many of those components can be repurposed into other machines. Others will simply be melted down or ground up. None of this work is actually done by Junk King; they just make sure your e-waste gets to the right people. That is a lot better than having you give up your day off to drive around town looking for these centers.

In addition to collecting your e-waste, Junk King can also remove any bulky item from your home. That means you can finally clear out your garage and basement of all the furniture you don’t need. Your closets can be free of clothes you’ll never wear again. All it takes is one call to Junk King to put this plan into action and you’ll be amazed at how fast it can happen. Most junk removal appointments are completed within 24 hours of that first call. If you would prefer to schedule your appointment for the weekend, Junk King will be happy to oblige. Getting rid of a computer monitor, printer or other junk items is hassle-free when you hire Junk King from the start.

Improve Your Houston Neighborhood Curb Appeal

If the exterior of your home is looking a little dingy, you don’t have to automatically repaint the place. Instead, consider a good power washing. As long as the paint isn’t flaking, a good washing could add instant vitality to your home. Add in some pre-arranged blooming flowerpots and your home’s curb appeal will go from zero to hero in no time. Hopefully, those minor cosmetic improvements won’t be hindered by some eyesore items you have cluttering up your lawn. Yes, at one point your choice of lawn ornament might have worked but after years baking in the sun those gnomes, birdbaths and sculptures are looking a bit sad. Maybe it’s time to take all that stuff away and opt for the clean approach. This sounds like a job for Junk King.

As they do for their normal service, Junk King will provide you with an exceptional two-man crew to help with your yard debris removal. This will be the team who can lift and load any object no matter how dirty or broken down it might be. That includes everything from busted bricks to a tool shed on its last legs. No job object is too big or small for Junk King to take away.

Along with the help clearing out your yard, that same Junk King crew can do some pretty amazing around the inside of your home. If you’re getting fired up to finish your spring-cleaning, then you’ve probably come across a lot of stuff that can be tossed out. This would mean finally getting rid of all the old computers, prints, TV sets and DVD players that are cluttering up your closets. You can also have Junk King take away the bags of clothes and boxes of household goods that you’ll never use again.

Everything can go on the back of the truck. Before that happens, Junk King is going to provide you with an estimate based on how much space your junk will actually take up on the back of the truck. It could be one third, one-half, one quarter or the full load. Whatever the amount, you’ll know before the work begins. This will also be an estimate that is going to be locked down. There won’t be any added charges at the end of the job. Improving your curb appeal and clearing out the clutter is what Junk King is all about.
