Minneapolis Clean Out – College Edition

By now, your college bound kid is set up in their dorm room. That sound you hear around the house is called “peace and quiet.” This is a proud time for any parent. It’s also a perfect time to clear out the clutter. Depending in the situation, your college kid might not be coming back to the homestead. This might be the stepping-stone to having them set up their own apartment. You’ll still be doing laundry and cooking for them, they just won’t be living under your roof! That’s the way it should be. As for what to do with their room, the possibilities are endless. First, you need to do a serious clean out. That’s where Junk King can be a big help.

Once you determine that you need to toss out some oversize or heavy objects, then Junk King is really the only call you have to make. Your clean out starts with assessing what you want to keep and throw out. Your kid might have left behind a lot of keepsakes or collections. Do yourself a favor and box those up. Let them make the final call on getting rid of that stuff. As for the bed, desk, dresser, shelves, drapes, carpet and outgrown clothes, those can all be taken away by Junk King.

You might be thinking that a lot of this furniture is still good. Just because you’re not going to use it doesn’t mean someone else can’t benefit from having it in their home. With Junk King, that won’t be an issue. When the crews come over for the junk hauling, they’ll be keeping an eye out for those items that can be donated to local charities. Even a table with a busted leg or a sofa that has lost its spring can be turned over to a charity for refurbishing. There are plenty of deserving organizations that are all on the Junk King drop off route! You don’t even have to ask; these donations will be made automatically.

Just because you’re clearing out your kid’s room doesn’t mean you can’t put the Junk King crew to work in the rest of your house. This is a great opportunity to finally toss out all the junk from your basement, attic and garage. A single room clean out can lead to a 100% junk free home thanks to Junk King.

Junk Removal FAQs In Minneapolis

Anytime you hire a company to provide a service, you should have questions. When it comes to reliable and affordable junk removal in Minneapolis, Junk King has all the answers.

Where will my junk end up?

Since it began as a business back in 2005, Junk King has been dedicated to an eco-friendly way of doing business. That is vital for a junk removal service because they are on the front line of adding to local landfills. Junk King will do whatever it can to avoid those landfills. So, far their diversion rate is hitting around 60%. That would be 60% of everything they collect is kept out of dump. Instead, those items are dropped off at certified recycling centers or charities that specialize in refurbishing. Even though there is a long list of specific recycling centers (one for e-waste, one for wood… etc.), Junk King is not going to charge any extra for this service. It’s all part of their complete junk removal package.

What can you haul away from my house?

Pretty much anything that isn’t nailed down can be tossed onto the back of the Junk King truck. And if it is nailed down, we’ll pull up the nails! With your Junk King junk removal session, you’ll be assigned a two-man moving crew. This is the crew who can bring up furniture from the basement or boxes down from the attic. Unlike other pickup services, you don’t have to move any object to bring it down to the curb. Wherever you’ve got junk is where the Junk King crew will go.

Are there any restrictions?

The only restrictions is with hazardous materials like paint, chemicals and solvents. We’re not permitted to transport those types of materials in our trucks. To get rid of those, you’ll need to go to a designated drop off center.

How should I provide an estimate for the junk I want taken away?

When you call to set up your appointment, you can give us a general idea of what you’ll be throwing away. We need to know if it is a few items or an entire home worth of furnishings (that has happened!). As soon as the crew arrives, they’ll make a more accurate estimate of your junk’s volume. That will determine the flat fee you’ll be charged. Keep in mind that you’re under no obligation to go through with the job if you’re not happy with price. However, if you add up paying for the cost of labor, truck rental and your own time it is clear that Junk King is an incredible bargain!
