Schenectady, New York

“I think your service is great! Our home had just been listed on the MLS for sale and our first showing was the second day after our movers had moved all of our things out of the home. The day after the move, we were frantically cleaning and trying to decide what to do with “junk” that was left over from the move. We thought we’d save money and try to donate, or throw away what we could in our trash, or just ask neighbors if they wanted it. We had a lot of junk! So at the end of the day, while looking at all the junk no one wanted, and stuff we could NOT throw in the trash, I frantically called Junk King and explained my situation. I had ten showings the next day, the first one was scheduled for 8:45 (buyers showed up fifteen minutes early), and I needed their help asap! It worked out that Reggie and David with Junk King showed up at my door at 8AM the following morning! I prayed, I had fingers crossed, and I may have had a dream that they didn’t show up, but they did!”

Hudson Valley Junk Removal In 2014

For anyone who works in a coal mine, being buried alive is a legitimate fear. What about being buried alive in a mess you created? TLC’s popular reality show, “Hoarding: Buried Alive” will be back with new episodes featured even more troubled homeowners who can’t seem to throw anything away. Before they get comfortable with tossing out trash, these folks need serious counseling. That is because severe hoarding is considered a psychological disorder. If you tune into the show, you’ll see therapists at work. You’ll also catch a glimpse of Junk King at work as they help clean up the piles of trash in the hoarders’ homes. Hopefully, your place isn’t as bad as the TV hoarders.

Hoarding newspapers.

Hoarding newspapers.

The big difference between those folks and the average person is the ability to throw something out. Just because you want to get rid of an old piece of furniture but have kept it doesn’t mean you’re a hoarder. It just means you don’t have a personal moving crew or truck big enough to haul that sofa way. With Junk King Hudson Valley, you can have both of those things at your disposal: A crew to do the work and a truck to do the hauling. The moment you set up your junk removal appointment with Junk King Hudson Valley is the moment when you stop becoming a hoarder.

Hudson Valley NY Post Storm Cleanup

History was made in a bad way when Hurricane Sandy slammed into the east coast at the end of October. That bad history included storm surges here in the Hudson Valley that hadn’t been seen for generations. This was officially classified as a major flood for this area. Of the many dangerous impacts from this surge the spread of pollution in the Hudson River and New York Harbor has been particularly alarming. As explained in a recent article: “a variety of toxic chemicals, including petroleum and fluids from cars and boats; contaminants from flooded subways, roads, parking lots and tunnels; and contaminants washed from shoreline industrial sites, as well as commercial and residential buildings. Oil sheens and debris have been observed—everything from 55-gallon drums and quart-sized containers of transmission fluid, to wrecked boats and swamped vehicles with leaking fuel tanks.”

All of this amounts to a major cleanup effort in this area that is sure to continue for weeks if not months. On a more personal level, you might have experienced your own flood damage that requires a level of intense cleanup. The objective would be to get any item laden with water out of your home as soon as possible. If you experienced indoor flooding then carpets and furniture might have to be replaced. This is obviously an enormous undertaking but you don’t have to do it all alone. Along with the many volunteers who are giving up hours to help clean up the Hudson Valley, there are many professional services that you can contract to help remove any kind of storm debris from your property. One of the best services for this is Junk King Hudson Valley.

Before the storm, Junk King was diligently working to help homeowners and business owners clear out the general piles of clutter that have accumulated over the years. These would be all those oversized items that can be tossed out for the weekly garbage pick-up. By hiring Junk King these owners were able to supervise a crew to remove those items from down in basements or up in attics. The Junk King crew did all the work and it was certainly a welcome relief for those owners to finally be rid of all that clutter.

Now in the wake of the storm, Junk King Hudson Valley is extending their services to help facilitate the removal of storm debris. They’ve already carted off tons of fallen branches, torn off roof shingles and other pieces of trash that too big for the normal pick-up. They’ve also remove plenty of damaged furniture and other materials that got smacked with the flood waters. Junk King can now help you with that same level of assistance. Their price structure is based on volume as in how much volume will your junk take up in their truck. There won’t be any hidden fees. It’s direct, dependable and efficient. Let Junk King help you get your home back in order!

Westchester Moving and Junk Hauling

The most important thing to keep in mind as you prepare to move into a new home is don’t procrastinate. The last thing you want is for moving day to arrive and you’re scrambling to pack up items. This is how stuff gets broken or left behind. The moving clock should really start ticking 30 days out from the official move date. At the 30 day mark you should be gathering up packing supplies like boxes and wrapping paper. You’ll probably end up using more than you think. This is why you should consider renting plastic containers. For about the same amount as you would pay for moving boxes, you can have plastic bins dropped off at your home for the move. Best of all, all that cardboard won’t be going to waste.

At the beginning of the 30 day mark is when you should also begin the process of switching over things like your utilities, cable and phone company. You’ll need a couple of weeks to schedule an appointment for some of those hook-ups. The more time you give those folks the better off you can be. Ideally those hook ups should happen on the day you move. If you can get into the property a day early that would be even better. You’ll also want to switch over all your mail and subscriptions.

There are some folks who let movers do all the packing. That’s a very expensive proposition. If you’re starting 30 days in advance you could set a goal to pack up three or four boxes a day. That’s not a lot of work and it lets you stay organized. Don’t forget to label those boxes not only with the items inside but also what room that movers should put them in. As you begin to pack up all those items you’ll definitely be taking with you you’ll probably make a discovery of a lot of stuff you don’t want. This would be all your useless junk. Instead of dragging that with you, why not call up Junk King Hudson Valley and let them move out your junk before you move?

Junk King is the Westchester based junk removal specialist who can help you dispose of all your unnecessary stuff. Sure, you might want to donate some items or try to sell them on Craigslist but ultimately you don’t want to bring junk into your new home. With Junk King Hudson Valley on your side, you’ll be able to load up a huge truck with as much stuff as you want to toss out. Get all of that out of the way and focus on the important items. The best way to start in a new home is without junk and Junk King can get you there.

Home Downsizing Tips in Westchester

How many rooms do you really need in your home? Put aside the idea of raising a family. If the kids have all gone off to start their own lives what are you left with? Conceivably you make the journey from your bedroom to the bathroom to the kitchen to the living room. For all practical purposes you’re only utilizing the space of one bedroom apartment. Yes, it might be a benefit to have a spare room for visiting family but then that would just a be a two bedroom apartment. Do you really need all the other space? You’re paying for maintenance on all those extra rooms plus the landscaping. That’s a lot of work especially if you were hoping to slow things down a bit as you head into retirement. Perhaps now is the time to think about downsizing.

Downsizing shouldn’t be thought of as “losing”  something but as improving your quality of life. You could move from a sprawling home where you do all the work to a luxury condominium that has all the maintenance work covered. That condo could also be within walking distance of shops and restaurants which could be an improvement on your current location. There is also the cost to consider. With a big house, you’re just pouring money into the plumbing, heating and electric bills. Go back to the original question: If you’re not using all those rooms why are you heating them in the winter or keeping them cool in the summer?

If you’re serious about downsizing, you’ll obviously want to pick out the new home before throwing away your stuff. Once you know how much space you’ll have then you can determine what items you’ll be able to bring with you. When you’re ready, Junk King Hudson Valley will be standing by to help cart off all your unwanted stuff.

Downsizing doesn’t always have to be about moving into a new home. Suppose you clear out the clutter in the garage. You could turn around and rent it out to someone who needs the space for a car. You’re “downsizing” your use of the garage and making money. You could take that same approach with those spare rooms. If you can clear out the clutter in those rooms you could rent them out and bring in some revenue. It’s all about improving your bottom line. And once again, Junk King Hudson Valley can be a big help.

You won’t have to worry about lifting heavy objects when you hire Junk King. They’ll do all the work of removing any item you want taken away whether that item is down the basement, up in the attic or out in the garage. Simply put; downsizing is a smart choice to get control of your life and finances.

Westchester NY Old TV Disposal

Collectors come in all shapes and sizes which pretty much corresponds to what that collect: all shapes and sizes! Believe it or not there is actually a very active group of collectors who focus on vintage television sets. These sets were way before cable. In fact, many of them probably wouldn’t be able to broadcast a signal because that can receive a digital feed. But that doesn’t make them any less valuable in the eyes of collectors.

The popular website Collectors Weekly explains the parameters of vintage television collecting:

“1946 through 1955 was the first big growth period for television sets. In 1947 there were only about 100,000 TV sets in the U.S. (many of them in bars and clubs) but by 1953 there were 13 million. CBS started broadcasting in color in 1951, and all-electronic color sets were first introduced in 1954. By far the largest television set manufacturer in those early days was RCA, but other vintage television brands include General Electric, Dumont, Andrea, and Zenith. RCA also made sets for Westinghouse and for Sears. Most collectors collect black and white sets from 1939 to 1949 and color sets through 1960. For black and white sets made after 1949, the values drop off dramatically, with some exceptions. There were a lot more TVs produced after the mid 1950s, so there are many still around (and they started to become less visually interesting, with metal cabinets). There are also people who collect early transistor sets from the 1960s and 70s, and micro TV sets.”

Who knows? You might just be sitting on a collectable television that could fetch a pretty penny. The key is with volume. Most of us have old TV sets made within the last ten years or so that were manufactured in the millions. There’s not going to be a lot of demand for those sets. When you’re ready to replace that clunky old TV for a high end plasma screen then you’ll want to dial up Junk King to handle the disposal of the old set.

Televisions aren’t something you can sit out on the curb and hope someone will pick up. First off all, no one is really that desperate for a free TV especially since they won’t know how long it has been sitting outdoors. It might have been in good working condition but one night in the wet grass and it’s pretty much a goner. That’s why you should depend on Junk King Hudson Valley to handle the pickup and disposal of a TV set. They’re going to do things the right way which often means recycling that TV. It will have to be disassembled and the various parts sorted out. Leave that to the recycling center to handle and Junk King will make sure your TV gets to the right center. Another way to think of TV disposal is that the moment you get rid of that old set will be the moment you’ll need to get a new one. That’s perfect motivation!
