Large Trash Pickup in Los Angeles

Large Trash Pickup in Los Angeles

Back in the day, the weekly garbage pickup typically meant a garbage truck, a driver and at least two workers to pick up the trash cans and dump them into the back of the truck. This was a very labor intensive type of work that also was very time-consuming. Innovation came along and replaced that old garbage truck with a grappling arm. Now, most populated cities, like Los Angeles, have automated the weekly trash pickup. While that has reduced labor costs and allows for more garbage retrieval in a day, there are some areas of concern that can be fixed.

The official rule is for folks to pack their garbage cans so the lids can be closed. This means no overflow. Will the garbage truck still wrestle that can with garbage overflow? Sure; but there is no guarantee that all garbage will make it into the truck. What falls to the ground is now something the homeowner has to deal with.

Then, there is the issue of large items outside of the garbage can. Back when there were two guys riding along on the back of a truck, they would think nothing of picking up whatever was left on the curb and tossing that into the truck. Often, homeowners would even include the garbage men on their holiday tip gift list because of the extra help they provided. With the grappling trucks, those days of “loose pickups” are long gone. In other words, if it’s not in the can, it’s not going into the truck.

So, where does that leave you when you have a large trash pickup? You could make the disposal of those items your next weekend DIY project. This is going to mean loading up your car or SUV with this trash. Are you willing to put things like that into the back of your car? You then need to drive to the appropriate dumping center. In Los Angeles, that could mean up to an hour drive just to find the landfill that is closest to your home. Then, it would be another hour back. There goes your Saturday! Once you get to the landfill, it’s not just a matter of dumping and going. You’ll also have to pay a dumping fee and might even have to do the transfer from your car to the most recent heap of garbage. Good times, right?

Actually, you can avoid this by simply hiring a team of professional junk haulers, like Junk King Los Angeles, to stop by your place, efficiently load those large items, and take them away for you. Don’t think of this as some sort of extravagance but, rather, as a practical means to an end. You don’t want to be in a position where you’ve got trash sitting on your front lawn. Instead, you can schedule a pickup, make the payment, and head out for your day. The experienced crew will handle the rest. And, because you’re working with a professional team, you can count on the job being done right the first time. When you return home, you can expect to be “garbage free”… at least for now!

Los Angeles Junk Hauling

Imagine paying over $4,000,000 dollars for a dress or $600,000 for a pair of slippers. Only in Hollywood. Actually, those are the prices that were just paid for a variety of one-of-a kind movie memorabilia. Legendary film actress Debbie Reynolds had been amassing a collection of Hollywood costumes, props and posters with the hope of opening a museum. The museum never came to fruition, and she literally had a warehouse full of objects that she decided to auction off.

What if you had a similar type of treasure stuffed away in your hall closet? Anyone who scours yard sales and flea markets in Los Angeles should always have yes open for that special “find.” There are many stories of valuable artifacts being sold for practically nothing at garage sales. Chances are, you can to find plenty of Hollywood memorabilia scattered throughout LA.  But, are the items valuable or worthy of an auction?

The news of Ms Reynolds’ auction might just motivate you to go through your closet or garage and see what you have. Sadly, after we survey our unwanted items, most of us have only things that aren’t worth the effort to sell. You could take advantage of this survey by pulling aside or marking the junk and hiring Junk King Los Angeles cart it off.  Hiring a professional junk hauling company is the safest and easiest way to get rid of all that stuff.

Remember, there is a major difference between hiring a professional company and hiring individuals who remove junk as a sideline or occasional activity. Although it’s relatively easy to hire an untrained worker, what guarantee would you have regarding the quality of work and completion of the task?

At Junk King LA, all workers are certified, vetted, and always professional – from their uniforms, to the respectful and efficient way they perform their tasks. Their integrity or abilities will become apparent as you watch them quickly remove your unwanted items.

And once you’ve cleared out your garage and closets, you’ll have the room for all the new treasures you’ll find!

Los Angeles Junk Removal

Have you considered enlisting in the Los Angeles TV series “storage wars?” You could be in for quite a treat. “Storage Wars” is a new reality cable program detailing the exploits of modern day treasure hunters who explore abandoned storage lockers. Apparently, many folks end up not paying for their storage lockers and thereby forfeit their possessions. The storage facility then puts these items up for auction where anyone can bid on the contents, but there is a hitch: you can’t actually go in and inspect the merchandise; you can only look at it from the outside and guess what might be inside all those boxes or containers.
On some recent shows, the treasure hunters landed some amazing deals. There have been bids of several hundred dollars which resulted in profits of several thousand dollars. This begs the question, “Why would anyone skip a payment if they had valuable items to sell?” We might never know the answer to that, but it should certainly make you think twice before you put something in storage and then forget about it.
Most of us in Los Angeles have turned our garages, closets, offices or spare rooms into our own storage lockers. This is where we dump all our own junk we collect over the years. Sure we could drag this stuff out onto the front lawn and try selling it in a yard sale but what happens if you don’t sell it? Clearly, you don’t want this stuff anymore or else you wouldn’t be trying to unload it onto some stranger. At some point you’ll have to face the fact that your junk is just junk. Isn’t it time to get rid of this once and for all and put those household spaces to better use? This is where Junk King Los Angeles comes into play.
Junk King is a national franchise of professional haulers who specialize in junk removal. Junk King has just opened for business in the Los Angeles area to help residents and business owners haul off their junk. This means you won’t have to put your SUV at risk by loading it with heavy, bulky items. Instead, you can hire Junk King and let them take it all away in their big trucks.
There is another consideration for hiring Junk King LA: they know where to take your junk. Like most Los Angelinos, you’ve probably spent plenty of time traveling from one end of the town to the next. From the east side down to the beaches and over into the valley. LA has a lot to offer. However, in all your travels did you ever come across a dump, landfill or recycling center? Probably not. You’ll have to travel far out of the city zone to find that. Is that really how you want to spend your precious day off? Stuck on the 405 or 10 or 101 loaded down with junk?
That’s not anyone’s idea of fun – except for the crews at Junk King Los Angeles. They live for that! Give them a try by calling 1-800-995-JUNK or book a free on site estimate online.
