The Proper Way To Dispose Of An Old TV

A new television is one of the most popular items bought over the holiday season. Many folks wait all year long to land those terrific holiday deals. However, if you are planning to upgrade your television, you have to make arrangements to have the old television disposed of responsibly. That is easily handled with one call to Junk King Minneapolis. These professional junk haulers make it their mission to recycle as much as they can from what they collect. So naturally, at the top of their list are old televisions.

Fast Removal

The time it takes to walk out of your house with your old television is precisely how long your Junk King appointment will last. When you schedule this removal, Junk King asks you pick a day and a two-hour window within that day that works best for your time. Junk King knows how important your time is, especially during the holidays. When the crew comes in, you will point to the TV, which will be cleared out. At that point, you can declare the job is complete. You would end up paying the low end of the price because your television will not take up a lot of room on the back of the Junk King truck. However, as long as you have the crew and that truck at your disposal, you should consider all the other things you can get rid of in the same session.

The Junk King crew can carry out unwanted furniture, appliances, clothing, and any other household goods that you are done using. Just think of the positive impact that will have throughout the house.

When you are ready to get rid of your old television, you want to do it the right way. That means calling in the crew from Junk King Minneapolis.

Utilize The Junk King Guarantee For Rubbish Removal

It is always nice when you can get a guarantee. That means whatever you are asking for it will be delivered. A guarantee is a commitment, which is always a preferred approach when spending money on a service. With junk removal, Junk King Minneapolis offers a guarantee for its price policy. That means the price that you will be quoted will be the final price. It will not change with any additional charges. It will also be a competitive price. Junk King will match any competitor’s price for the same amount of rubbish removal. You might even find the Junk King will give you a better deal. That is how Junk King creates loyal customers. All that is left to decide is exactly what you hauled away.

The Always Friendly Crew

One of the most common comments expressed by Junk King customers is how friendly the crews are. That makes them the perfect workers to invite into your house. Not only are the Junk King crews friendly, but they are also great problem solvers. If you have something substantial, the Junk King crew will find a way to get it onto the back of the truck. In the past, Junk King crews loaded everything from a hot tub to a pool table. So whatever you ask them to remove will not be a challenge for them.

As for the guarantee that comes into play when you settle on the price, this is a price determined by how the Junk King crew will pack the truck. One flat rate covers all the labor, travel time, and disposal drop-offs. That will be a written estimate. The guarantee means if your stuff takes up more room once it has been packed on the truck, you will still pay that original estimate.

Junk King Minneapolis wants every rubbish removal session to be fast and affordable. Book your session today.

Remodeling Your Business? Find Out How Debris Removal from Junk King Can Help

Remodeling Your Business? Find Out How Debris Removal from Junk King Can Help

Sometimes a business needs a refresh or a full remodel to breathe some life back into it. Even large corporations with offices or stores across the country change things up every now and then. Remodeling your business can be a large task, though, even if you’re a small boutique or office. While you can put a new coat of paint on the walls and move some furniture around, that’s more of a refresh instead of a remodel. Remodels often involve removing flooring and walls, replacing displays and shelving, and much more, which is why debris removal is so important.

If you’re doing a refresh, you may not create a lot of trash. Doing a remodel, though, is probably going to leave you with a lot more debris than you expected. You’ve got to do something with all of this trash. One of the best solutions is to call Junk King Minneapolis. Our crew can quickly and easily haul away any garbage you have, including construction debris, old furniture, and old appliances. Whether you’re remodeling your own business or are in the business of doing remodels, Junk King is here for you.


Refresh or Remodel?

The first question to ask yourself is how much work do you want to do? Sometimes your answer is dictated by the condition of your office or workspace. If you’ve had water damage or are buying an older building to convert into your business space, you may not have a choice. Another reason to do a full remodel is if the space just isn’t working for you the way it is now. For example, if you have a small waiting room that is always crowded, it might be time to knock out a few walls and enlarge the space.

On the other hand, if the space is working for you but the place is starting to look a little dull, it might be time for a refresh. This does include painting, but it could also include new flooring, new furniture, and new lighting. A refresh is like a breath of fresh air, making your space look brand new without doing anything too involved.

Which option is right for you depends on what you need. If you do a refresh on a space that isn’t working for you, no amount of new paint will help improve how it functions. Of course, if you spend a lot of money to remodel a space that is working, you may be wasting money.

One way to help you determine if the space works is to poll your employees and even your customers. Find out what works and what doesn’t. Where do things seem to bottleneck? Are there spaces you rarely, if ever, use? Do you have some rooms devoted to storing junk? With that last one, Junk King can help you recover that space. Once we’ve cleaned out your trash, you might find that you actually have all the space you need.

Be Careful DIYing it

Another question business owners will need to decide is if they want to DIY some of these changes or if they want to call in a professional. DIY remodels can be tempting because people think they save money, but they often end up costing much more. Business owners who don’t know what they’re doing can cause a great amount of damage and have to spend a lot more just to rebuild their office.

If you’re doing anything with plumbing, electrical, or gas lines, you must hire a professional. If anything is done incorrectly, it can put everyone in and around your office in danger. Improper wiring could start an electrical fire, while a gas leak could cause the whole building to explode. Never attempt to DIY any of that. Another area where you should hire a professional is when you’re removing walls. You want to make certain the walls you want to take down are not load-bearing. If they are and you remove them, you may cause the entire roof to sag.


Either Way, You’re Going to Have Debris

Whether you do it yourself, hire a contractor, or are a construction crew, there’s going to be debris to get rid of. If you do a lot of work, you’ll typically have a lot of trash. Of course, sometimes the amount of work you do isn’t proportionate to the amount of trash created. If you decide to remove the carpet in your office and replace it with luxury vinyl planks, you could find that there are layers of flooring under the carpet. You may have to remove all of this old flooring. You may also find damaged subflooring that has to be removed and replaced. You never really know what a remodel is going to involve until you start opening walls and ripping up flooring.

As this debris builds up, you’re going to need someone to come haul it away. Junk King will take just about all types of construction debris except hazardous waste. This includes old cabinets, flooring, fixtures, and more. Most of this debris is created in the first few days of the project during demolition. You’ll end up with piles of debris, some of which may be in your way. Having us come in and clean it all out gives you a good starting place to rebuild.

While much of the trash may come from removing old stuff, you’re still going to create some additional garbage as you go. You’ll have the packaging your materials came in as well as the leftover materials from cutting pieces to fit. You may also create more demolition debris if you discover that you have to make additional changes or upgrades. This debris usually just piles up. That’s fine if you have a spot for it.


We Work with Businesses that Do Renovations

If you own a construction company, window installation crew, roofing business, or other company that’s in the construction industry, we’ll partner with you, too. Many companies that handle renovations for businesses subcontract Junk King to deal with all of the debris. We provide the same fast, reliable junk hauling services for these crews as we do for homeowners, landlords, and business owners. If you’d like to bring Junk King in as your debris hauling expert, please contact us today.

Even a Refresh Can Include Debris

If you decide to just do some cosmetic changes, you may not anticipate having a lot of trash. However, if you decide to replace any of your current furniture, you’re going to need to do something with the old stuff. This is another place where Junk King can help. We take office furniture of all types, including chairs, desks, filing cabinets, waiting room furniture, and much more. We’ll also haul away any old computer equipment you have, including printers and copy machines.

We know you may be hesitant to get rid of some of this furniture because it’s still in fairly good condition. You may be tempted to store it in a backroom or extra office, but you do need to ask yourself if that’s really the best use of the space. Will you ever use this furniture again? If not, why keep it? You could ask your employees if they want any of it. However, if you have a lot of old stuff, you may still end up with a lot of desks, chairs, and other things. You may consider selling some of it, too, but that’s not always quite as easy as it may seem.

Junk King will take all of this old office furniture, but we won’t go straight to the landfill with it. Instead, if it’s still in good condition, we’ll donate it to local charities. We’ve partnered with a number of different organizations in Minneapolis and the surrounding areas to help those in need. They will see to it that anything you have that’s still usable gets to people who can use it.


We Also Recycle

In addition to redirecting usable items away from the landfill, we also pass on anything that can be recycled to the appropriate recycling facility. Our goal is to redirect as much as possible from the landfill. In addition to donating and recycling, we also work closely with transfer stations that use junk as fuel to generate energy. At the end of the day, very little of what we actually pick up goes into the landfill.


Becoming a B2B Partner with Junk King

We work with many businesses in the Minneapolis area, and we would love to work with your company, too. Junk King partners with companies of all sizes, including small businesses and startups. You may only need us to come once a year during your annual cleanout, and that’s fine. On the other hand, if you’re a construction company and want to form a partnership, we’re happy to put you on our schedule. We will provide you with an estimate before every job that includes all fees and charges. We firmly believe in transparent pricing and will gladly answer any questions you might have.

Whether you need us regularly or just after a remodel, Junk King Minneapolis is here for you. Reach out today at 1-888-888-JUNK to discuss how we can help support your business.

What Does the Home Show Focus On?

The Maple Grove Home Show is all about your home. You’ll find companies that specialize in home remodeling, landscaping, windows, decking, and much more.

There are three exhibition rooms you can make your way through the banquet hall, the commons area, and the downstairs exhibit hall. You’ll want to be sure to visit all three to meet all of the different exhibitors and collect information on how each can help you with various home renovation projects.

Free Seminars

Want to learn a little more about various remodeling projects? The Home Show has invited certain experts to give free seminars throughout the day. The schedule isn’t available yet, but you’ll certainly want to visit the Home Show’s website before the event to see the seminar topics before you attend. These seminars will focus on everything from remodeling a few rooms to creating a backyard oasis and other projects.


Get There Early!Get There Early!

If the seminars you want to attend aren’t until the afternoon, you may decide you don’t need to get to the show too early. There is a very good reason to come when the doors open, though: free goodie bags! The first 100 people will get these bags. They will include some promotional items from exhibitors, discount vouchers, and much more.

In addition to our booth focusing on junk removal, you’ll find other exhibitors that are focused on specific areas. You don’t have to be interested in DIY remodels. You’ll find booths that focus on landscaping, renewable energy, financing, home accessories, and even related areas such as chiropractic services and wellness.

At the end of the day, the Home Show is free to attend, so even if you only have a couple hours free on November 19, you can drop by and pick up some information about the projects that you’re interested in. You don’t need any DIY experience or have any specific home project in mind. Exhibitors will be glad to talk to everyone from beginners to those who have successfully completed dozens of renovations.

How Much Does Junk Removal Cost in Minneapolis?

Tackling junk removal is something everyone has to do at some point. You can’t just let it pile up, as tempting as that may be. Well, you can, but pretty soon, you won’t have much space left in your home to actually use. Few people want to keep trash and other junk around, and it does nothing but takes up space you could use. You may not be able to park your vehicle in your garage, use your guest room, or find things in your shed because there’s so much junk in those spaces.

The problem is that getting rid of this just is sometimes harder than it should be. Basic trash like small boxes, food containers, and other packaging go right in your garbage bin, and that’s easy enough. The problem is bulk trash, which includes anything large, heavy, or that isn’t allowed in your standard garbage bin.

This trash then starts to build up until you can find some solution to getting rid of it. That could be taking it to the dump yourself or reaching out to Junk King Minneapolis. You might be wondering about the cost and if it’s worth it. After all, you could always find someone with a truck to help you get rid of that old sofa or refrigerator. Why is Junk King worth using? The answer to that lies in the value. Let’s look at what makes our junk removal services worth the small cost.


We Haul Everything Out of Your House

Some people are more than capable of getting furniture and appliances out of their homes, and others aren’t. If you fall into the second category, you may not be certain how you’ll get the junk out of your home. You might have friends or family members you can call on to help with your junk removal project, but they may not be available for several weeks. Even if they are, you must figure out what to do with the junk once it’s out of your home. Do you have a truck you can use to get it to the landfill?

Even if you have some people who can help you move stuff, do you know how to do it safely? There’s always the chance you will slip, bump into something, or drop something heavy on your foot. There’s also the risk to your home. You could accidentally scratch the floors, break a light fixture, or bang up the doorframes.

Junk King’s junk removal crew is trained in moving large furniture, heavy appliances, and other bulky things safely and carefully. We will get all of these things out of your home without damaging it or ourselves. We can even carry things up and down stairs. Even if you live in an apartment and need us to navigate multiple flights of stairs, we can do it.

Heavy Lifting, Without Moving A Muscle

We Have Junk Removal Safety Equipment and Large Trucks

Part of the reason we can get things out of your home so safely and quickly is that we have the right equipment. This includes dollies, carry straps, back support belts, and other gear. Many people wouldn’t invest in these items just to get one or two pieces of furniture out of their home, but these things would help make the job easier and protect you. By working with Junk King, there’s no need to consider buying anything. We have it all, and we know how to use it properly.

We also have large trucks that are more than capable of holding whatever junk you have. You don’t have to worry about damaging your truck, borrowing one, or renting one. We can load everything from a large sectional sofa to furniture from multiple rooms. We’ll even empty hoarder homes or pick up a demolished shed if you need us to.

Bigger Trucks

With Our Junk Removal Services We Take Trash at Any Time

Minneapolis has a large trash collection service, but it has two downsides. First, you have to maneuver whatever you want to get rid of out to the curb. Second, you can only put two things out at a time; this trash is only collected periodically. There are also many items that you cannot put out for them to take. You also have to ensure you’re only putting non-recyclable items out for this service since large junk that can be recycled must go out on a different day. It’s a lot to keep track of and figure out. Even if you put the right items out on the right days, there’s always the chance that the crews will have so much to pick up that they don’t get to your home for a day or two. That means you’ll have trash at the curb, which isn’t a great look.

Junk King doesn’t make you wait. We’ll book a pickup time based on your schedule when you call. We will text you when we’re on our way. We will take everything you need, and we always try to bring a truck with plenty of space in it. If we have several back-to-back jobs and the truck has filled up, we’ll get as much of your stuff in it as we can and then call for a second crew. Our trucks are, on average, about 20 percent larger than those our competitors use, so we can fit a ton of stuff in them.

We Take a Wide Range of Garbage

Got an old mattress to toss? We’ll take it. Has the ancient refrigerator in the garage finally given up? In our truck, it goes. Need to have that storm debris hauled off? We’ll deal with that, too. Junk King can haul away almost everything. While much of what we take is old furniture, appliances, and trash, we also handle electronic waste, yard debris, and even debris and waste from DIY remodel projects. We’ll haul off your old deck, demolished shed, and hot tub just as easily as we can carry away an old recliner.

While we do take a wide range of trash, the one thing we can’t handle is hazardous material. Anything that falls under this classification can’t go in our truck for safety reasons. Sometimes, we can tell you what to do to make it easier to eliminate this waste, such as mixing liquid paint with cat litter so it solidifies. Other times, we might know of a local hazardous waste disposal facility that will take whatever you have. It never hurts to ask, and we’ll provide you with whatever information about the hazardous waste we have.

We Make it Easy to Get an EstimateJunk King Minneapolis Call Now to Make an Appointment

Junk King provides a free, no-obligation estimate for every one of our junk removal jobs. We make it possible to get one of these estimates, too. First, you can call us and talk to us about what junk you need us to haul away. In most cases, we’ll be able to give you a fairly accurate estimate with basic information. However, if you have a lot of stuff, we might need to do an in-person estimate just to be certain we’re giving you the most accurate estimate possible.

That’s the second option—you can have us come out and do an estimate. This is ideal if you have a lot of stuff to get rid of or unique things that we might need to see to be able to quote. When we come out, we try to bring one of our trucks with us so we can start work as soon as you approve the quote.

You can also text us information about what you want us to haul off, and you can send photos and other information. Like with phone estimates, sometimes this is all we need, but sometimes we do need to see the trash in person to provide you with a firm estimate.

The fourth option is to use our online pricing tool. It’s accurate for common items like basic sofas, beds, refrigerators, and other items. If you have anything that doesn’t fall within standard measurements, we’ll likely need to do a final quote in person. This tool is really just to give you a ballpark figure so you can budget accordingly.

All of our quotes are provided for free, and there is never any obligation. We provide you with a list of all fees and other costs, too, so you’ll never find anything on the final bill that you weren’t aware of. We believe in being fully transparent, and we’re always more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

Call In Junk King For Full-Service Rubbish Removal

There was a time when most of the gas stations across the country were strictly full-service. That meant you pulled up, and an attendant would come out and ask you what you wanted and then take care of pumping your gas and wiping your windshields. Now, most of us pump our own gas. But some tasks do require full service. That would undoubtedly include having rubbish removed from your home.

This kind of rubbish is too big for the trash can. Instead, it needs to be picked up by movers and loaded onto the back of a truck. That is exactly what you will get when you hire Junk King Minneapolis for a rubbish removal plan. This full-service professional junk hauling company takes care of this task the right way.

Get Rid of It All

When you set up a full-service rubbish removal session with Junk King, you will be assigned to movers and a big truck. This is exactly what you need to get rid of all your unwanted stuff, regardless of size or weight. You might even have some objects that need to be removed before they can be carried out of the house. The Junk King crews will quickly dismantle things like an entertainment center or even a pool table.

Before anything gets loaded onto the truck, the Junk King team will present you with a written estimate. That estimate will be determined by how they plan on packing up the truck with all your unwanted stuff. The Junk King flat rate is all about volume. The less space your junk takes up on the back of the truck, the less you will pay. This is a fair and competitive approach for this work that Junk King customers appreciate.

Full-service rubbish removal is a phone call away to Junk King Minneapolis. Make that call today.

Call For A Junk Removal Estimate Today

You probably have something you need to get rid of from your home that requires movers in a big truck. That means hiring an outside company to handle the task. For junk removal, the best company for the job is Junk King Minneapolis. Of course, anytime you hire a company for a task, the cost will be a factor. That is why you can get a free estimate from Junk King that will convince you to hire them for your junk removal needs.

Start With a Phone Call

Hiring Junk King for rubbish removal begins with a phone call. That is where you can get a rough estimate for the services. Junk King uses a flat rate price policy that is based on volume. That means you will not be charged by the pound. Instead, the flat rate is determined by how everything will fit onto the back truck. Because of the many years that Junk King has of doing this type of work, they know how things fit onto the truck. So if you were getting rid of a single sofa or mattress, you would pay the low end of the price scale. Of course, the more you add to the truck, the more you pay. But that will always be a price that is fair and competitive.

The final estimate cannot be determined until the Junk King crew sees all the rubbish in person. It might be that the in-person estimate will be even lower than what was quoted over the phone. Once you agree to the price, the work can begin. In no time at all, every bit of your unwanted stuff will be gone for good.

You can always count on Junk King Minneapolis to remove your rubbish at a fair and competitive price. Book that session today.

How Local Junk Removal Services Can Help with Your Custom Man Cave

How Local Junk Removal Services Can Help with Your Custom Man Cave

Over the centuries, the layout of the home has evolved. In the past, homes often had a drawing room or a conservatory. Some had formal living rooms, music rooms, libraries, and parlors. Today, few new houses have these spaces and older homes that did have been updated to turn them into bedrooms or make them part of the living room. Even spaces such as formal dining rooms are being removed in favor of open-concept living/dining spaces.

As some of these rooms disappear, others are becoming more and more popular in new builds. Many new homes have a home office or a room designated for hobbies. Others have home theaters or spaces dedicated to playing games. Most of these spaces were designed for the entire family, though some hobby rooms were mainly aimed at crafts or sewing. Men who wanted their own space often found themselves out in the garage. While garages can make for an amazing space, they’re also typically uninsulated, unheated/cooled, and overall not very comfortable.

Enter the man cave: a space just for the man in your life. These “man caves” can be anything from a converted garage or basement to a spare room or finished-out attic space. Some are even stand-alone structures placed in the backyard. A man cave can be a bar, a place for playing cards, a hang-out area with a large television, or anything else the owner wants it to be.

If you’re thinking about creating your own man cave, you first have to clean out the space and update it. Here are some tips for doing just that, including how the local junk removal services offered by Junk King Minneapolis can help you create your dream space.

Finding the Right Space for Your Man CaveFinding the Right Space for Your Man Cave

The first step to creating your perfect man cave is finding its space. There are several options for you depending on how your home is set up and your needs.

One of the easiest options is to use a spare bedroom for your man cave. If you have a bedroom that isn’t really being used for anything, that’s a great option. If one of your children has just moved out for college, you could take over their room, though do remember they may be back during the winter and summer breaks.

If you’re going to use your garage, basement, or attic, however, you may have to do some structural work before the space can be usable. Your garage may need to be insulated, and you may need to replace the overhead door with a wall. In your basement, you may need to put in drywall and add in something other than a cement floor. The attic may need insulation or additional lighting installed. Remember to bring in professionals to handle any electrical work or replumbing you need to have done. These are not tasks you can safely DIY. You may also need permits or city inspections to ensure the space is up to code.

Adding on to your home to create a man cave is the most work-intensive option. It’s also likely going to be the most expensive. You have to pour a foundation, frame the walls, extend your roof, run HVAC, wiring, plumbing, and more. Yes, you’ll get to create your ideal man cave down to the size, shape, and placement of windows, but it’s not a cheap option.

Bringing in a portable building or converting a shed shares some of these expenses, but it’s typically not as costly as expanding your home. Do keep in mind, though, that you will need to have enough space in your backyard to accommodate this new build.

Make a Plan

What do you want your man cave to look like? What will you mainly use it for? A man cave that’s more of a home theater for you to watch movies and TV shows in will have different needs than one built around playing cards. Before you really start changing up the space, you need to put together a plan based around what you want to do in the space.

This plan should include everything from the wall color and light fixtures to the furniture you’ll need in the space. Make notes of any appliances you may need to purchase and what items you currently have that will move into the space. You may decide you want to have a fully functional bar in the space, which could mean running some new plumbing. You may want to add more outlets so you can put your large television in the space you want, or you might need new lighting for your poker table.

Call Local Junk Removal Experts Junk King to Clean Out the SpaceCall Local Junk Removal Experts Junk King to Clean Out the Space

The next step is to prepare the space, which usually means cleaning it out. This is where you’ll want to call a local junk removal team. Junk King Minneapolis can haul away anything in the space that you no longer want. If you’re converting the garage, basement, attic, or current shed, a lot of junk may have accumulated in the space. You’ll need to decide what you want to keep, where those items will go once the man cave is done,

Junk King will haul away anything that isn’t classified as hazardous waste. We can get rid of that old refrigerator in the garage so you can replace it with a fully stocked mini-bar with a new fridge that has all the bells and whistles. We’ll haul your old washer and dryer out of the basement to make room for your pool table or large sofa. Whatever’s in your way, we’ll get rid of it.

If any of these items are still usable, we’ll make sure they get donated to those who can use them. Just because the old refrigerator isn’t what you envision for your man cave doesn’t mean someone who can’t afford a new refrigerator won’t appreciate it. Your old sofa may find a home in a shelter along with your child’s old bed. Anything that can be reused or recycled will be redirected away from the landfill.

Heavy Lifting, Without Moving A Muscle

Finalize Your Plans

Now that your new man cave’s space is empty, you can get a good look at it. You can measure it out and finalize the blueprint for what you want to bring into the space. This is the time to make any major changes to the room itself because it can be more difficult to do that after you have furniture in the room. Again, be sure to bring in professionals if you’re going to be doing anything with the electrical or plumbing.

Now is also the right time to change the flooring or paint the walls. You may have already put down the new flooring during the conversion if you’re finishing a basement, attic, or garage. If you’re repurposing a bedroom, though, you may want to take out the carpeting and change up the walls. You might also want to put in a new light fixture. Whatever you need done, doing it now will make cleanup much easier. Junk King can haul off old flooring, light fixtures, and other junk, so don’t worry about the trash.

New call-to-action

Do Some Shopping!

No man cave would be complete without some new furnishings. While you may not need to buy everything you put in the space, you may want to get a new sofa or comfortable recliners. Again, it’s your space, so take your time and find the perfect items for your man cave.

That includes the décor. You may have a specific theme you’re going with, such as your favorite sports team or hobby. You likely already have a lot of things you can use in your decorating, but you may also need to hang some new shelving or bring in a few bookshelves to complete your space. Again, don’t be afraid to spend a little money to make your fantasy man cave a reality, especially if you’ve waited years to have a space dedicated to your hobbies.
