After several months of tinkering with the idea, you finally decided that it was time completely renovate your kitchen. Besides investing in new cabinetry and countertops, you have also decided to upgrade to newer, more energy efficient appliances. And while you´re at it, you´ve also finally found the resolve to get rid of that hideous dining room set that your great-aunt passed along to you, and invest in a newer model that matches the new look of your renovated kitchen. You have contracted the renovation company, purchased the new appliances and furniture…but are not exactly sure how you are going to get rid of all of those old appliances, construction debris, and that clunky old dining room table.
For homeowners, business owners, and other residents of Los Angeles, finding an efficient, expedient, and affordable junk removal service can often lead to headaches. There are literally hundreds of junk removal companies servicing the wider LA area, and virtually all of those companies claim to offer the best prices and most efficient service. So who do you believe? Do you simply take a guess and hope that the company you choose after a quick Google search gets the job done in a satisfactory manner?
Unfortunately, not all private junk removal companies offer the same type of service here in Los Angeles. In this short article, we will offer a few hints on how to find the best company for your particular junk removal needs. We will also explain why Junk King Los Angeles is the top-rated, customer-preferred junk removal for the wider LA area.
Tip #1: Don’t Simply Pick the First Company You Come Across
A recent news article that looked at the growth of the junk removal industry in the United States stated that:
A recent study by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has found that the junk removal industry generates an annual payroll of $10 billion and employs over 481,400 people in the United States. Those numbers are expected to grow every year.
These statistics go to show that there is money to be made in the junk removal industry, and it shouldn’t come as a surprise that LA residents have so many different options to hire. Unfortunately, many of these supposedly “reputable” junk removal companies are little more than two buddies with an old pickup truck who will charge you ridiculously high fees to pile up your junk in that old truck and haul it to the nearest landfill (or in some cases, to the nearest illegal dumping ground).
When you are choosing which junk removal company to hire in Los Angeles, we recommend finding a company that has a proven track record of service and professionalism. Junk King, for example, has hundreds of franchises across the country, and is proud to be one of the top-rated junk removal companies on Yelp. Here in Los Angeles, we have been helping our commercial and residential clients with all different types of junk removal needs for several years.
Tip #2: Find Companies that Do the Heavy Duty Lifting and Hauling while Respecting your Home
Secondly, you should also make it a priority to look for companies who do not require that you “pre-stage” your junk by taking it out to the curb or the driveway. One of the major advantages of hiring a private junk hauler is that you simply won´t have to go through the physically exhausting ordeal of hauling a 300-pound couch or bulky refrigerator out of your third-story apartment.
When you hire Junk King of Los Angeles, our professional junk haulers can help you get rid of that old couch, the extra bed that no one uses, appliances that need to be updated, and even bulky items such as that broken hot tub that you were hoping to one day fix up. As long as your junk items are not classified as toxic waste, we can most likely help you get rid of them! We will also do all of the heavy lifting and hauling for you. Just let us know where the junk items are located on your property, and we will do the rest.
Furthermore, as the leading junk removal company in the region, the Junk King Los Angeles team will be licensed and insured, which could make a huge difference in case something should go awry like a scuffed-up hardwood floor or damage to a wall. Whereas other junk removal services might leave you to deal with any mess and damage that occurs, our trained professionals will most likely not cause any damage in the first place. If something were to occur, however, we most certainly will respond.
Tip #3: Avoid Companies with a Reputation for Hidden Charges and Fees
Nobody enjoys hidden charges and fees. Unfortunately, many private junk removal companies end up charging their clients significantly more due to the “fine print” in their pricing structures. Here at Junk King of Los Angel, however, we believe that every one of our commercial and residential clients has a right to know EXACTLY how much they can expect to pay when they hire us. To that end, we make it incredibly easy for our customers to get a fair and transparent price estimate by offering four convenient ways for homeowners to find out how much their junk removal needs will cost:
- On-Site Pricing Estimate: On-site pricing is the best and most accurate way for us to assess the job and offer you the lowest price. Unlike other companies, our on-site pricing estimates are completely free, and come with no obligation on your part. Our junk removal professionals will inspect the junk you need hauled away and offer you an upfront price. If a price is agreed upon, we will often be able to get rid of your junk on the same day.
- Call to Talk with a Trained Customer Service Representative: If you´d prefer to talk with someone before making a decision, you can call us toll-free at 1-888-888-JUNK or at (706) 705-5320. Our customer service representatives can help you plan the logistics for any large-scale junk removal.
- Text us a Photo: For smaller jobs, you can simply take a photo of your items, text us at 737-888-5865, and we will text you back an estimate. Once you accept the estimate, all you have to do is wait for the Junk King truck to arrive.
Online pricing estimator: Lastly, Junk King of Los Angeles also offers an easy-to-use online pricing estimator. Simply enter your zip code to ensure that you are in the right service area and provide a few more pieces of information regarding the junk you need removed. Our pricing estimator allows you to receive a transparent cost estimate based on either the actual items you need to be hauled away or the anticipated volume in the Junk King truck you plan on taking up. The online pricing estimator is convenient, reliable, and time-saving for those on a tight schedule.
No matter what option you choose, as soon as a price is agreed upon, you choose a date and two-hour service window that works for your schedule. Our junk removal professionals will call you 15-30 minutes before we show up to promptly take your junk away.
