Monterey Junk Removal Prices

Have you heard of the vampyroteuthis infernalis? The literal translation would be “vampire squid from hell” and according to the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute this underwater creature can be classified as a “living fossil that harmlessly subsists primarily on the ocean’s waste products, including fecal matter and discarded shells.” This particular squid lives 3,000 feet below the surface where there is very little oxygen. The researchers found out about the habits of this critter after studying underwater tapes. They also managed to snag one of the beasties and put it under the microscope. What they found was that this squid is kind of like an underwater goat eating up the garbage of the ocean.

That would certainly be a new approach to cleaning up your own kitchen mess. “Honey, can you pull out the squid to clean up the sink?” Even if you went full on goat mode that four legged fella could only consume so much. Try getting a goat to eat an old sofa you want tossed out. For the big junk removal jobs forget about the squids or the goats and focus on the king – as in Junk King Monterey.

Junk King is a proud member of the Monterey business community who has been helping the local homeowners, apartment renters and business owners clean up their property by removing all the unnecessary clutter. How can Junk King Monterey work for you? First figure out what you want to get rid of. This doesn’t have to be exact because even with a first pass through your house you might not find all the items you finally want to toss out. Once you have a good sense of what needs to go, give Junk King a call. They’ll send a supervisor out to your home to survey the junk. This is so they can create an estimate based on the amount of space your junk will take up in the Junk King truck. That’s how you’ll be charged by the truck space. There will be no hidden fees, landfill charges or labor costs. One price. The only way that price would change if your junk ends up taking less room than the estimate. In that case, you’ll be given a refund. If it takes up more space you won’t pay any extra.

As soon as you agree on this estimate, you’ll make an appointment for the removal. This will be based on your schedule. Whatever works for you is when Junk King Monterey will show up. On the appointed day at the appointed hour expect a truck and crew to roll up into your driveway. Show them the junk you want carted off and they’ll take care of the rest. You don’t have to move the junk or pull it out to the driveway. In no time that junk will be loaded up and driven away. Then it’s off to dinner for some fried calamari… just don’t tell the vampire squid!

Monterey Basement Junk Removal

You can’t think about Monterey without thinking about the beautiful beaches. They are what make this region so idyllic not only for the locals but for every visitor who is lucky enough to pass through. Yet, beyond the picture postcard perfect images there some who treat those beaches as their own dumping ground. It’s disgusting but luckily there is “Save Our Shores.” This is an international group of volunteer environmentalists who dedicate time throughout the year for cleanup of some of our most treasured shore lines.

Who is an “environmental volunteer?” That would pretty much be anyone who wants to make Monterey even more beautiful. Church groups, cub scouts, fraternities, families and friends can all participate. On a recent Saturday, 3,491 volunteers spread out across more than 70 sites in Monterey and Santa Cruz counties for the Coastal Cleanup Day. In Monterey County alone there were 1,137 volunteers who gladly gave up three hours of their Saturday to pitch in for the cleanup effort. The mission was simple: pick up anything that didn’t belong on the beach:

“This is generally a pretty clean beach, but last year we collected more than 40 bags of dog poop here,” said Laura Kasa, executive director of Save Our Shores. “We’re also going to find a lot of cigarette butts out here today,” Kasa said. “I did a cleanup yesterday on a very small beach and picked up about 600 pieces of trash, half of which were cigarette butts. Cigarette butts seem small and innocuous, but they are little time bombs that fish, birds, even dogs can eat. I met somebody yesterday who said their dog ate four cigarette butts and ended up in a hospital.”

By the end of the day, 16,827 pounds of trash were picked up Saturday in Monterey and Santa Cruz counties. That’s a lot of trash to be left behind by such careless visitors. Perhaps reading about this type of clean up might inspire you to think about your own trash. We’re not talking about the trash you get to throw out every week but about that stuff which ends up “sticking around.” This would be the big bulky items which really have no business being a part of your lifestyle.

While it would be great if you could enlist an army of volunteers to help you clear out your basement, attic, closet or garage the only help you’ll really need is from Junk King Monterey. Actually, hiring Junk King is like hiring your own army. They’ll move in at the scheduled time and move out with your junk without you lifting a finger. You get to call all the shots and Junk King Monterey gets to do all the work. They wouldn’t want to have it any other way! Give them a try today. The sooner you clean up your junk the sooner you can get to the beaches!
