What is Junk Removal, and Why Hire the Professionals?

Having junk cluttered all over your home can ruin even the most beautiful interior designs and landscapes. That junk makes your property an eyesore because they usurp space, yet it’s old and unwanted. Junk is typically much heavier and bigger than your ordinary trash/garbage; perhaps the reason most property owners are usually reluctant to undertake removal projects. As a professional junk removal company, we provide you with a reliable, convenient, and safer way of removing unused items in your home. 

According to NBC News, 25% of American householders deal with “clutter issues.” It’s no surprise, considering the average home houses over 300,000 items. In fact, 84% of Americans are disturbed because of their disorganized homes; 55% confirmed that it’s causing them stress.

But why endure all that stress when you can pare your surroundings and eliminate all that stuff that’s “eating up” space in your home? Besides, you can translate them into more in your wallet. The only hurdle is that there are safety risks in a DIY junk removal project because most folks lack the necessary equipment. 

This article provides valuable insights into how you can rid your home of junk and why you should hire professional junk removal services. 

How to Get Rid of Junk?

You first need to sort through your junk and then create a pile of unwanted stuff that needs removal. Once you’ve done that, the easiest means of getting rid of those items that are in good working condition is to donate to charity. 

However, things get trickier with useless belongings that don’t function and must be removed. Getting rid of junk isn’t straightforward, because if you leave it on the curb, your garbage disposal service won’t pick it. The city council might impose a fine because you’ve left junk where it shouldn’t be. On the other hand, not all landfills accept such unwanted items. If you’re lucky to find one that does, they only take specific junk. 

That’s where our junk removal services come into play. Partnering with us is the only reliable means of getting rid of junk without problems. A removal company has the necessary equipment to handle and haul away any stuff, including: 

  • Furniture
  • Appliances
  • Construction waste
  • Hot tub 
  • Trash/garbage 

Apart from trashing all unusable items, we have the expertise to repurpose them for other applications in other areas. We’ll stop at your property at your own convenience and remove all your junk, regardless of size, dimension, or shape. 

Junk Removal vs. Garbage Removal

Most people confuse junk removal and garbage removal. Although you might technically be right to use the two phrases interchangeably – they are two services that involve the removal of unwanted items or materials from a home or business – the two are different in several ways.

Junk removal is a type of business in the waste industry whose services property owners hire to have their unwanted, big and bulky items removed, hauled, and disposed of. They come to your home and remove any junk you might have from anywhere, including garages, attics, bedrooms, and even tight spaces. 

While most junk removal companies follow the easier and conventional procedure of taking your junk items to landfills, we are an environmentally-focused company that’s dedicated to contributing to conservation efforts. Our professionals will typically take your junk to a recycling plant or donate it to charity. They can also remove e-waste (such as TVs, printers, shredders, computers, copy machines, etc.) because they have the resources to ensure the safe handling and recycling of such items. 

On the flip side, garbage removal refers to the regular removal of household and commercial waste that includes smaller items, such as packaging materials, food scraps, and other types of waste. Garbage is gross, and no one would like smelling, eating, or touching old food and other contaminated things. That’s why garbage removal professionals must follow strict sanitary procedures when handling garbage. The local authorities or municipalities are responsible for providing garbage removal solutions while residents and businesses pay for these services as part of their tax payments. 

In sum, junk removal is a service that handles the removal of unwanted junk items that may still be in good working condition (or not). Garbage removal is the regular removal of commercial and household waste. 

Benefits of Hiring Professional Junk Removal Services

If you’re among the 55% of American homeowners who stress because of their cluttered homes, it’s time to partner with professional junk removal services. Below are reasons why you may want to do that:

Alleviate Back Pain

The National Library of Medicine estimates that about 80% experience low back pain at one point in their lifetime. A considerable number of lower back injuries come from DIY attempts to de-clutter the home. You don’t have the training (or the equipment) to handle the job, and it’s easy to bend awkwardly and strain your back when carrying heavy stuff that your body can’t bear. 

At Junk-King Marin, CA, we alleviate such hazardous situations by using specific equipment for specific removal jobs. Some of that equipment includes appliance dollies, utility carts, moving blankets, and many more. These machines and tools allow us to remove all the junk from your home without directly lifting heavy stuff. 


While you may have to carry the garbage bag early in the morning or at night to the curbside, you need not raise a finger when you hire junk removal services. Our company will schedule a visit to your home at your own convenience and clear all that stuff that’s making your home disorganized, saving you the time and hassle of doing it yourself.

Accident-Free Junk Removal

Slips, trips, and falls are some of the most common risks that DIYers expose themselves to when they attempt to remove junk. For example, you might drop a small object, and on the verge of moving around, you step on it and trip or fall. Lifting a heavy item can also cause you to lose your balance and fall. 

By hiring our junk removal services, you’re guaranteed of working with professionals who understand the intricacies and risks associated with the job. Remember, we are an insured and a bonded company that never underestimate any risks. We follow the proper removal procedures, clearing the path they need to use to ensure their own safety and that of your family. 

Proper Junk Disposal

As a leading junk removal service in Marin, CA, we ensure all your belongings are disposed of in an eco-friendly manner. That means we will recycle or donate what’s reusable, and if it’s not reusable, we’ll dispose of it properly. 

Space and Aesthetics

Following professional junk removal, your home will have the much-needed free space to make your home or business more functional and enjoyable. Junk removal also improves your home’s aesthetics, making it more attractive and welcoming. 

Timely Junk Removal

Removing junk typically involves heavy lifting, and that’s why our professionals work in teams to ensure they complete the job in a few hours. That teamwork ensures everyone involved in the job gets the support they need to avoid the risks of accidents. 

If you decide to clear the entire pile of junk lying in your home, the chances are that you might end up taking several days. Not to mention the health and safety risks you’ll be exposed to.
