Monterey Old TV Disposal and Buying Guide

Ever since “Jaws” hit the movie theaters back in 1977 summer has become a time when Hollywood releases its big blockbusters. To the diehard aficionado there are some movies that simply must be experienced in a theater. However, thanks to advances in movie playback and television technology it’s easy to convert just about any room in your house into your very own private screening room. This will allow you to bring the blockbusters right into your theater at any time of year. First, you want to make sure you’ve got the very best in television technology. As you go shopping for new television you might want to keep the following tips in mind:

  • Take Good Measurements

There are many TV salespeople who can tell you dozens of stories about consumers buying a television only to return it within hours because it’s the wrong size. Often this is because they are trying swap out an old television for a new television and make it fit the same entertainment center or TV stand. In many cases that just won’t work. Before you head out to the store you need to measure the space where your TV will go and make sure you leave a 2 inch border around the entire set and behind the set that will help with installation and ventilation.

  • Consider the Room

There are optimal viewing distances for your new TV that you should consider with regard to screen size. For instance with a 32 inch LCD TV you should have at least 4 to 5 feet between you and the TV. The wider the screen the more space you need. When you get into the 50 inch so then you should be back by at least 8 to 10 feet. These will give you the best results for watching a widescreen feature.

  • Delivery

The final issue regarding size has to do whether or not you’ll be able to take your TV home in the back of your SUV. While you might be eager to get everything plugged in and fired up you might also discover that your car is too small and you’ll have to wait for home delivery. Just factor that into your shopping experience.

This same issue applies when it comes to get rid of the old TV. You might not have the space in your car for that task either. That’s why you need to bring in some professional help in the form of experienced junk haulers like Junk King Monterey. These are the guys who can take away your TV in a flash and load it up onto their truck for drop off at a proper recycling facility. As long as are coming over for your TV, this same crew could also take away any other junk you’ve got laying around taking up space. Won’t it make watching movies on your new TV a lot better to know your home is completely free of clutter? Of course it will!

Monterey Appliance Disposal

The Monterey City Disposal Service has some helpful hints for anyone who is moving into a new home or apartment. For instance, they recommend that if you know you have a move coming up you should start collecting useful items like empty boxes, bubble wrap or anything else you might use to wrap up your fragile items. The goal would be for you to reuse the kinds of boxes that are thrown out by stores instead of buying them new. They also recommend that when you change your address with the Post Office just file it as a temporary change versus a permanent change. This is because the U.S. Postal Service sells lists of permanent addresses to junk mail marketers but they don’t do so with temporary addresses. Thanks Postal Service!

The city disposal service also has suggestions for what to do with some of the junk you might accumulate as the result of packing up your life. Once the move is complete they suggest that you can give away your moving boxes by posting a notice online at freecycle.org or 831classified.com. While that might seem practical you’re basically giving away your address to total strangers and letting them know you’ve just moved in. That might not be a very wise thing to do.

As for big items like refrigerators or large appliances you will need to make your own arrangements for their removal. The last thing you want to do is drag something like this out to the curb and hope it will be picked up. This could not only create a health hazard in your new neighborhood but also bring down the wrath of the local police as they fine you for what is considered to be illegal dumping. There are several drop-off centers located around the Monterey area which are more than willing to take in your old appliances. The trick is getting those appliances to those centers. Instead of going through all that kind of hassle why not simplify things and call upon a team of professional junk haulers like Junk King Monterey to help you accomplish this task?

These pro junk haulers will show up at the appointed hour with the right amount of muscle and empty truck space that they’ll need to take away any bulky item you want to get rid of. This means you’re not limited to just removing that old refrigerator from your house but also all kinds of other unwanted clutter you been dying to get rid of. This especially holds true for someone who has gone through a move and realized that that old furniture simply doesn’t work in the new home! Junk King Monterey’s pro haulers are also dependable contractors that will respect your home. Even if you aren’t involved in a move you can still use the same junk haulers to clear out all the stuff from your own garage, basement or closets. When that happens it will truly be like you’ve moved into a new space!
