Rockland NY Junk Hauling

From the “Better Late Than Never” file comes word that Rockland County has just been awarded $1.6 million in funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to help repair storm damage. That would be Hurricane Irene in 2011. Although all the local politicians are lining up to take credit and praise the response it is still two years overdue. The funds are specifically targeted for repairs along the Minisceongo Creek that was battered during the storm. Now work crews will be dispatched to the region to buffer up the barriers and shore up the shoreline.

Suppose you were given over a million dollars to clean your home? Surely you could get the job done for that amount! With that amount of money, it might make better sense to tear down the entire place and rebuild from the ground up. You don’t have to take such drastic measures to get your home clear of clutter. All you really have to do is give Junk King Hudson Valley a call. Of course, you have to figure out what you want to toss out but when you do, Junk King will take it from there.

Junk King Hudson Valley is part of a national franchise of professional junk haulers. Yes, professionalism matters in this business. Do you really want to trust someone who travels the neighborhood in a battered pickup truck looking for scrap metal? When you schedule an appointment with Junk King Hudson Valley you’ll be assigned a dependable two-man crew to handle the removal. These workers have been thoroughly trained and are all insured and certified to do business in Rockland County. These are the very type of workers you should be hiring.

The Junk King crew will do all the heavy lifting. You don’t have to pull your down flights of stairs or down to the curb. The JK crew will pick it up wherever it is. They’ll then load it up onto the back of their massive hauling truck. That’s another benefit with hiring Junk King; you won’t have to rent your own van or truck and take up time searching for a landfill.

It might only take a few moments to load up all your junk but that’s just the beginning of the job for Junk King. At the end of their pickup schedule, the crew will then be sorting through all the stuff they’ve collected. Some will go to the dump for sure but most of what they take in will be dropped off at recycling centers or a charity that does refurbishing. Whether you’re throwing out one piece or a whole truckload of junk, Junk King is the only way to go!

Rockland Junk Removal

It has been several months since Super Storm Sandy slammed into the region but the clean-up and rebuilding effort is still ongoing. Recently the newly launched New York State Senate Bipartisan Task Force on Hurricane Sandy Recovery conducted a tour of the impact areas. After a roundtable of discussions with those involved with the clean-up and those affected by the storm there was a new round of recommendations. These include the following:

“Developing certification and licensing procedures for mold remediation contractors. Supplementing existing business loan programs with direct grants to businesses severely impacted by Sandy. Working with the Department of Financial Services to expedite insurance claim check processing to ensure that homeowners get the resources they need to rebuild their homes as soon as possible. Developing better statewide protocols for gasoline distributions so that the energy needs of first responders and other critical service providers are properly prioritized. Exploring the use of soft barriers as a means of mitigating future storm damage.”

Although that all sounds a bit “bureaucratic” they’re intentions are noble. However, if there is anything to be learned by the government’s response to a storm is that when it comes to cleaning up you’re better off doing the job yourself. That doesn’t necessarily mean you have to do it alone. When you hire Junk King Hudson Valley to help with your junk removal you’ll be getting your very own work crew and truck. What could be better than that?

Junk King’s main business comes when folks are looking to clear the clutter from their basements, garages and closets. Instead of dragging stuff out to the lawn in the hopes someone will buy it or take it away, you can be proactive with your junk and have JK crew take it away once and for all. Keep in mind that you don’t have to wait for the aftermath of a storm to get the Junk King Hudson VAlley crew cleaning up your yard. They’re happy to schedule a removal appointment at any time. In fact, it might be good to survey your property to make sure there aren’t any items that should be discarded before the next storm. Are there some tree branches that should come down? Junk King can help clear those away.

The Junk King Hudson Valley crew that will be coming out to your home will be certified and insured. This makes them 100% professional and those are the only kind of workers you should invite into your home. When you’re ready to get the junk out, give Junk King a call. They’ll do a pickup in all kinds of weather!
