Junk King’s Pricing Estimator Helps Make Your Junk Disappear

Making things disappear in the movies has gotten to be an art form. In the early days of cinema, if you wanted an object to “vanish” you would film it in place for a few seconds. Then stop the camera, remove the object and film for a few more seconds. The editor would then splice the two pieces of film together and it looked like something vanished. Today, you can literally “erase” an object from the film using special effects tool. Wouldn’t it be great if we could make the junk around our homes vanish that quickly? Until they’ve worked out magic spells for junk, you can always count on Junk King Monterey to get the job done. And thanks to Junk King’s pricing estimator that job just got easier.

Junk King’s pricing estimator is a computer program that lets you create a list by designating all the things you want to get rid of. As you click on the items, you’ll also be building your estimate of cost. The Junk King pricing policy is a flat fee that covers the workers, the transportation and the disposal. It is a price based on how everything will fit on the truck. The pricing estimate used approximate sizes to make that estimate. The final estimate can only be locked down once the Junk King crews have seen everything in person. That’s because they know better than a computer program how to pack up the truck. This often means your actual estimate could come in lower.

When you are complete with the pricing estimator list you can then schedule your appointment on the same page. By doing all of this online, you also get a $20 discount. That is savings before one item is loaded.

Once the estimate is agreed to it won’t change. Even if your stuff takes up more room you’ll still pay that original price. What can go on that truck? Just about any piece of furniture, appliance or electronic gear. You can also add boxes or bags of clothes, toys, books and other household items you want to get rid of. Think of how much of an improvement that will make around your home. Making your junk disappear isn’t magic. Just put Junk King’s pricing estimator to work and you’ll see how easy it is to clear out rubbish.

Reduce Stress

How many times do you feel like you’re under stress? Pressure could be coming at you from all kinds of angles between work and family. The challenge for this resolution is to find a way to make that stress diminish. If you feel pressure from work, then try coming in an hour earlier a few times each week. It’s amazing what you can get done when no one else is around. At home, you can reduce stress by addressing problems head on instead of letting them simmer. Take the time to have fun nights where the focus is on the family.

Get More Quality Sleep

We all have certain “wind down” routines that help us get ready for bed. However, some of these routines might be working against you. If you get under the covers and use that time to go onto social media and enter into debates, then you’re not going to get any rest. The same thing can happen if you try to fall asleep with the television set on. No light. Comfortable mattress. Cool temperature. That’s the way for more quality sleep. Social media can wait until the morning.

Read More, Watch Less

What was the last good book you read? If you’re an avid reader, then you’ve found time in your schedule to enrich yourself through literature. Maybe you were once an avid reader but now the days have gotten away from you. Time to get back to those books. It might help to watch a bit less TV. Thanks to DVRs, you can record your favorite program and watch it later. Take that extra hour to crack open a book or magazine.

Get Rid of Clutter

Along with getting into shape, many folks put “getting organized” on the top of their New Year’s resolutions list. That is a very good goal but it’s not just your desk at work that needs to be organized. You can conduct a top to bottom review of your home to get every room, drawer, cabinet and closet better organized. Part of that will mean getting rid of a lot of clutter. That’s where Junk King Monterey comes into play. The team of movers assigned to your appointment can do a quick sweep through your entire home picking up unwanted items from every room. Size and weight don’t matter with Junk King. If getting rid of clutter is one of your New Year’s resolutions, the Junk King Monterey is the company that can make it happen.

If you plan it out, then you could take care of all these task in a single weekend. That would let you coast through the rest of the season!

Inspecting the Roof

It may not seem like it now but the rains are coming as they always do in California. Before they start the heavy downpour, you would be well advised to give your roof a thorough inspection. Check where the rain gutters are attached to make those joints are secure. Go around the entire perimeter of the house and make sure there haven’t been any breaches in the roof. If you spot something that doesn’t look right, then you might bring in a professional roofing contractor. If that person says you need a new roof, then it might be a good idea to get a second opinion!

Clean out the Gutters

As you’re inspecting those rain gutters to see that they are still securely attached to the roof you’ll also be clearing them out of leaves, twigs, nests and any other debris that floated in there.

Clean Your Fireplace

Not every fireplace needs a thorough chimney sweep. You might be able to find the tools you need from the hardware store to conduct a very thorough chimney sweep. This is something that should be done before you start using the fireplace this fall. Just be sure to spread old sheets are drop-offs around the living room before you start scraping out the ash from the chimney.

Replace the Vents

You will soon be making the switch from AC to heat. This is the time to swap out your air vents. If you have central heating along with central AC, then you should probably switch those vents out once a month.

Clear Out the Rubbish

How much accumulated rubbish is piled up in your garage or closets? Getting rid of all that unwanted clutter might seem like it will take up too much time on your day off. That would be true if you did it all yourself. But if you hire Junk King Monterey, then the job will get done very quickly without you lifting a finger. Junk King Monterey will send over a team of movers and their truck to facilitate your rubbish removal. Just think of how your home will be transformed once all the rubbish is gone.

Forget The Yard Sale. Junk Removal Pros Are The Best Way To Get Rid Of Your Rubbish

There are many folks who love to spend their weekends going from one yard sale to the next picking up what they hope to be bargains. Often those same people are buying things that they will turn around and resell eBay for a higher price. Maybe makes more sense for you to list your things on eBay yourself.
