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.

Don’t Turn Your Houston Home Into A Storage Unit

Moving out in a hurry or moving into a smaller place are the two most popular reasons for renting an outside storage unit. The idea is that if you can just “throw” everything into a storage unit, you’ll sort it out later. Of course, if you’re moving into a bigger space than the same principal applies. Only in that scenario, you’ll bring all that “extra” stuff with you. What’s wrong with filling up your attic or basement with things you’ll sort through later? Nothing actually unless of course you never get around to sorting through that stuff. Then you’ve created a storage unit in your home. Could that space be put to better use? It could if you call Junk King and let them clear out the unwanted clutter.


When most folks begin going through their home storage unit, they are surprised at what they find. Often, they don’t even remember where something came from. You might be able to find a few items you can put to use right away. However, if you’re holding onto things like an old VCR or outdated printer, then you should really think about getting rid of those things. The less clutter you have in your home, the better off you’ll be.

Some folks have an entire room that has become a storage unit. We’re not just talking about a garage but a spare bedroom loaded with furniture and things no one is ever going to use again. Can you think of better uses for the room? Maybe turn it into an actual guest room for visiting family. It could also become a home office or arts and craft studio. When Junk King is on the job, you’ll have that room back in your control in no time.

The added bonus with hiring Junk King for your junk disposal is that they’re not going to let anything go to waste. Sure, there are some things that are always going to be trash. But things like furniture, clothes, toys and other household goods might have a little life left in them. If that is the case, then Junk King will do everything in its power to get those pieces in the hands of a reputable charity. That way your cast offs can help a family in need. Cleaning out your home version of a storage unit begins and ends with a call to Junk King.
