Kansas City Treadmill and Exercise Machine Disposal

Joining a gym isn’t just about running on a treadmill; you can also get the kind of specialized training that will take your exercise program to a whole other level. A new exercise facility is opening up in Emporia that is going to be managed by professional Mix Martial Arts fighter Daniel Gallemore. Members will have an amazing opportunity to train alongside Gallemore and get into shape like never before.

“Hoping for a high-intensity gym,” Gallemore told a local newspaper. “Mostly fighters, like self-defense and jujitsu. We do quite a bit of wrestling. Muay Thai, probably bring some boxing guys in. Do some seminars and stuff. It will mostly be like a combative gym, mixed martial arts gym. It won’t be just for fighters, but it will be geared around mixed martial arts.”

That space that Gallemore is setting up in his used to be a salon storage area. That has required some serious modifications. “It used to be a salon,” Gallemore said. “There were sinks and counter tops and plumbing and lighting and speaker wires and all kinds of stuff up there along with the stuff that was in storage. It was very organized. We had to go through and demo everything and reorganize a lot of stuff. Dusty’s brother went up there and painted the walls. We’ve got to put tin on the ceiling now. We even had to tear some Styrofoam clouds off the ceiling that they had up there for decoration. We still have some wiring to do. Got to move some more stuff out of storage to downstairs and tidy some things up.” Are you ready to step into the ring?

This is just a snapshot of one of the many gyms operating in the Kansas City area and it’s a perfect example of the number one benefit you get from joining a gym: personal attention. Even if you don’t have a trainer working with you there is still the opportunity to take all kinds of classes at the gym. If you have an occasional question about an exercise or piece of equipment those trainers will be happy to answer that. You’re not going to get that kind of attention in your home gym set up.

Time to get real: Do you have a treadmill in your home? Some dumbbells? One of those crazy all-in-one gym workout stations? If so when was the last time you used any of that? Yes, the intention was to make it easy to workout because it’s right in the next room but the reality is that you might not be getting the workout you truly need especially if you have limited space. Embrace that fact that that unused gym equipment is now officially junk. Now you’re choice is simple: call up Junk King Kansas City to get rid of it all! They’ll take it away and you can get serious about your workout by joining a gym. Who knows what you can transform into?

Kansas City Air Conditioner Disposal

It’s been a real scorcher this summer. In fact, it’s the hottest summer (so far) since they’ve been keeping records. With the rising temperatures will come an increase in air conditioning use. If you’re “power driving” your AC you might discover that it’s not performing as it should be. The fault might be in the age of that unit. Like any other type of appliance, an AC that is running 24/7 is simply going to wear down. If you’re considering buying a new model you might want to consider these helpful shopping tips:

Is this the right time to buy an AC? Actually, we’re at the peak of the summer where air conditioners are fetching a premium price. If you can hold out for a couple more weeks you might find a better bargain as retailers are looking to clear out the showrooms of their “summer stuff.” That’s when the discounts will really kick in. But if your AC is on the fritz, you might not have a choice to wait.

If you’re replacing a particular type of AC unit then it is easy to decide which type to buy. However, you might take a moment to consider all your options. For instance, many homeowners without central air have window units but there are also portable units that can be moved from room to room. This is a decent option when you want to conserve energy and save on your electric bills. Why cool off the whole house when you’re just using two rooms?

You’ll also want to check out all the improvements in AC design such as adjustable thermostats, variable cooling and fan speeds. Some units have an energy efficient setting that will shut down the fan when the unit has achieved its desired cooling temperature. Your new AC should also have an adjustable vent which will allow you to direct the cool air and an easy to remove filer for hassle free cleaning.

Make sure your new AC will be EnergyStar rated. That will guarantee the unit will be operating at peak efficiency which will translate into energy savings for you. The higher the number of cooling capacity or BTUs the more powerful the unit will be but think about room size. For a 150 square feet room you really only need around 5,000 BTU/Hour unit.

After factoring in all those “factors” you’ll be ready to head off to the store to begin shopping in earnest but don’t forget about one of the most important factors and that would be getting rid of the old AC. You’re not going to be able to throw out your AC in the trash. Instead, call up Junk King KC and let them take away that AC to dispose of it properly. While they’re at it, Junk King can also make a clean sweep of your basement, garage or closet to cart away all kinds of junk you want to get rid of. You’ll find yourself cooling off a lot better in a house free of junk!

Junk Removal for Kansas City Realtors

There’s a big change heading Kansas City’s way and it could have a direct impact on the increasingly competitive real estate market. Google has selected Kansas City as a test town for its new and improved faster gigabit services. Google Fiber promises to deliver download speeds up to 100 times faster than what users are currently used to. What’s this got to do with real estate? Think about how fast a prospective buyer will be able to search through the listings? Home prices are beginning to tick up which means competition for listings are going to become fierce. You want to stay ahead of the curve by being out in front of as many of those listings as you can. They might mean a little out of the box thinking.

Just as home prices are seeing signs of life, the foreclosure market is stabilizing but there are still plenty of properties on this side of things which are every bit as viable as new home. What you need to do is steer a prospective customer away from the stigma of a “foreclosure” and closer to “dream house.” That can easily be accomplished when you enlist the services of Junk King KC.

We all know that some occupants of a foreclosed home stopped caring a long time before they finally moved out. Whatever the circumstances, they made the choice to give up their property. Once they crossed that line they really didn’t care what happened. In many cases, owners would literally toss the keys over their shoulders and leave the property abandoned. Sadly, some of these same properties have become squatter’s homes. When that happens, all kinds of nastiness can be occurring. Don’t freak out about what you might see when you first step into a foreclosed home. Instead, know an experience junk removal team will be standing by to strip that house bare of all garbage great and small.

Junk King Kansas City works great with realtors to get a property ready for the market once again. A call to Junk King sets the process in motion with a visit to the property by a supervisor. That supervisor will assess the amount of garbage to be removed and how much space it will take up on a truck. Based on that amount, you’ll be given a written estimate and that’s the price you pay. No hourly rates. That’s going to come in handy especially if this is a big removal job involving pulling up carpets or hauling furniture from a second story.

With the junk loaded on the back of the Junk King truck you can also be assured they’ll do everything possible to make sure it is recycled and reused. It’s a great selling point for your business and the junk business. Get your edge back with help from Junk King KC.
