5 Tips to Make Your Junk Removal Pickup Easier

5 Tips to Make Your Junk Removal Pickup Easier

Have you cleaned out your home for the new year? Maybe you’re planning to do a major purge within the next few weeks so you can start off this year with a clean, junk-free home. No matter when you plan on getting rid of junk, it’s a good idea to have a plan. By taking a few steps to make getting rid of junk easier, you can spend less time focused on dealing with trash and more time enjoying life.

So what can you do to make junk removal pickup easier? There are a few different things. While you don’t have to follow all of these tips, picking a few of them will certainly help. Once you’ve prepared junk for pickup, you must give Junk King Minneapolis a call. We’ll take care of the rest!

1. Know Exactly What You Want Hauled Away

The first step to getting rid of your junk is to know exactly what you want to get rid of. You may call us when you have an old refrigerator you need to get rid of, but ask yourself: is there anything else that could go? Instead of making several calls and having us pick up trash multiple times, get everything together at once.

There are a few benefits to this. You only have to have us come once, which means you only have to have us on your calendar one time. You don’t have to take off work or be sure you have your schedule cleared for junk pickup. 

Another benefit is that you get your whole house cleaned out at once. The old refrigerator is gone from the garage, but so is that old dresser, the broken hot tub on the back patio, and anything else that you don’t need. Now you can buy the new furniture you’ve been wanting for months or simply have more space in your home. If the garage is full, getting rid of junk may let you park your car inside, which can save it from damage if a strong storm rolls through. 

The third benefit to knowing what you want to get rid of before you give us a call is that you can provide us with all the information. We can’t give you an accurate estimate if we don’t know what we’re going to be hauling off. By telling us exactly what you’ve got, we can give you a better quote so you will be able to budget. We do an in-person final quote before we go to work, so you can always add things to the list, but that will change the cost. By having a list of everything that needs to go when you call us, you’ll have a complete estimate.

2. Make Use of Contactless Junk Removal

Did you know that Junk King Minneapolis offers no contact junk removal? You don’t even need to be home when we come. However, there are a few extra things you will need to do to take advantage of this option. If you’re home, we will come in and carry out all of the junk you want rid of. You don’t have to move anything, just show us what you want us to take away. However, for no contact removal, you will need to move the items outside. Set them in your driveway, on the side of the home, or at the curb. Then you just let us know where they are.

The obvious downside here is that you may have to move heavy, bulky furniture out of your home. That means getting it out through the front door without scraping up the flooring, damaging the doorframes, or anything else. You also have to be able to move heavy furniture, which not everyone is.

The other downside is that you can’t add anything as easily because it would change the cost. Typically, we can only take what you’ve set out. This may not be a big deal if all you have to get rid of is a single appliance or piece of furniture, but it might be more of an issue if you have a large house full of junk. It’s harder for us to deal with a hoarder home or other large amount of junk without doing a full in-person estimate and getting your approval. 

3. Know What We Take

Some people don’t have us haul away everything we could simply because they don’t know what we take. Be sure to check out our website before you give us a call so you can have us take everything you want to get rid of. While we do often haul away appliances and furniture, we do much more than that. If a winter storm has hit the Twin City area, you may have a lot of limbs or even entire trees come down. We can haul that debris away. Even if you cut down the branches during a summer backyard renovation, we’ll take them. We handle a good amount of yard and storm debris, including bushes, fencing, sheds, gazebos, and much more. Any type of backyard structure can usually be broken down and put in our trucks.

We also handle things that aren’t always easy to dispose of, such as old hot tubs. We know how to disassemble and remove them correctly, so you won’t have to worry about any leaking water or other issues. We also take electronics, mattresses, and even some construction waste. Basically, as long as the item doesn’t contain hazardous materials, we can take it. 

If you have any questions about what we can take, you just need to call us. We can often tell you yes or no over the phone. In some cases, we may need to come actually see the item. As always, we will always do a final in-person estimate before we start the job. 

4. Take the Time to Find Hidden Junk

The easiest and fastest way to get rid of junk is to make a quick list of what you know needs to be hauled off and then call us. While this will eliminate all of the junk you can easily see, it may not address hidden junk you may not even realize is there. To make the most out of junk hauling, you need to spend a little time taking an inventory of your home. 

Take a look through the garage and shed to see if there’s anything that you can get rid of. Go through the attic and basement if you haven’t done so recently. You might even want to assess the overall condition of things such as furniture in a guest room or things left in one of your kid’s rooms after they’ve moved out. As mentioned earlier, there are many benefits to knowing what you want to have hauled away before you call. You might need to spend a couple of weekends cleaning your home to gather up or identify all the junk, but once you do, it can all go at once.

5. Don’t Wait!

There’s no reason to put off junk removal. In fact, the sooner you clean out your home and have Junk King Minneapolis swoop in and haul it all away, the easier the process will be. Junk builds up over time, so you’ll reset the amount of stuff by cleaning out your home now. While you may need us to come in again later on, it could be years before you need to do a major cleanout again. Don’t put off having a junk-free home any longer.
