You already know that Nashville is a great place to live. Why would you want to go anywhere else on a vacation? There might not be any palm trees in Nashville but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy all kinds of amazing and relaxing adventures on your very own staycation. Here’s how you can make your staycation in Nashville a great one:
Go On A Yard Sale Hunt
There could be a lot of treasures found at weekend yard sales. A staycation is a great opportunity to go on a yard sale hunt. Start the day off with a great breakfast and pull together a list of all the yard sales in your area. Once you find something you like, don’t be afraid to haggle.
Go For A Hike
There are some amazing hiking trails all throughout the area that you could explore on your staycation. Even if you don’t go on a strenuous hike you could still find a nice mountain trail that would be a great place to have a picnic. Doesn’t that sound like an amazing way to spend a day?
Take In A Show
Nashville is all about the music scene but when was the last time you went out and really enjoyed good live music? Your staycation can be a chance to visit with some old favorites and explore new venues for music.
Throw A Potluck Dinner Party
Having friends over for dinner doesn’t mean you have to do all the work. When you make it potluck then everybody gets a chance to show off their culinary skills. A dinner party is always a great way to catch up with friends. It’s a perfect event for one of your staycation nights.
Go Camping In The Backyard
Just because you invested in a lot of camping gear doesn’t mean you need to drive off to put it to use. Camping in the backyard can be a lot of fun on a staycation. It also means you are just a few feet away from all the comforts of home… Just in case.
Obviously, you want to make sure your job knows that you’re on vacation and that means no phone calls or emails. It might also help to get your home straightened up so you don’t feel compelled to spend your time off cleaning. Junk King Nashville can be a big help with this task. Although they won’t do dusting and mopping they will be happy to remove all that clutter you’ve been living with for so long. One session with Junk King Nashville can have your closets, garage and basement cleared of unwanted rubbish. That’s a great way to start a staycation.
Part of the fun of the holidays is turning your home into a Christmas wonderland. At least a “wonderland” that you enjoy. There are a lot of folks around Nashville who take hanging lights to the extreme and there is nothing wrong with that! Most of us have boxes of holiday decorations that we haul out once a year to spruce up the home. Each year we can add to these decorations to make things even more festive. However, there are some folks who find it increasingly difficult to get to their holiday decorations. That’s because of all the junk that has piled up since last Christmas. If you find that there are piles of junk between you and your decorations it might be time to call in Junk King Nashville.
The favorite spot for holiday decorations is the attic or garage. If you’re organized, everything can go into properly label plastic bins. At the very least, the holiday decorations should have their own shelf. However, it’s also the attic and garage that becomes the storage area for all our other stuff. These are the things we’re done using like workout equipment, old clothes, appliances and computers. That stuff can all get piled up in front of the holiday boxes. Then when it’s time to decorate for Christmas you’re going have to fight your way through a maze of junk just to get to the good stuff. With Junk King you don’t have to put up with all that clutter getting in the way. One removal appointment is all it will take to help you get completely organized and ready for the holidays.
When you hire Junk King Nashville, you’re really hiring a two man crew along with their big truck. These are the hard workers who be removing anything you want taken away. If that artificial Christmas tree has seen better days, it might be time for a new model. The old one can go right onto the back of the Junk King truck with very little effort. Getting rid of all that household clutter will also make you feel better about inviting folks over for the holidays. If you’re having family from out of town, then you’ll want to make them feel comfortable by putting them up in a room that is cozy and not like a literal storage locker.
The other advantage of having Junk King clear out all that clutter is you can make room for even more holiday decorations when they go on sale! Give Junk King a call today to start your holiday cleaning off on the right track!
Up to 3,000 freshman at headed over to MTSU to start their college careers. Is your student among that class? The rite of passage for many of these kids is living on their own for the first time. “I don’t think its hit me yet honestly. Making my own bed, doing my own laundry. Whenever the parents leave in like an hour it will probably hit me,” said one student to NewsChannel5. Many of the dorm rooms come with minimal furnishings but students are free to enhance their living spaces as they see fit as long as they follow the rules of the dorm. In other words, no hot tubs!
Often parents will report that their homes have been picked clean of things like fans, coffee makers, microwaves and other furnishings. On some level this is a good thing because all of that left over stuff is out of the house. On the other hand, a kid going off to college can reveal a lot of left behind junk that should be tossed out. Instead of holding onto those kinds of things you’re best bet is to call Junk King Nashville and let them get it all gone for good!

There’s an issue concerning many downtown Nashville residents and that’s with all the trash piling up. This isn’t trash in their neighbor’s yards but along public roads and public property. The Metro Public Works office seems to be well aware of the issue but they also appear to be overwhelmed at the same time. Complaints about overgrown grass received a prompt response.
“The city cuts 10,000 miles of the county’s grass. Our guys work very hard, 365 days a year,” said Jenna Smith, spokesperson with Metro Public Works. “Usually we’re coming, it might be next week, but we’re coming.”
Frustrated residents have also been suggested to form a group and do the cleaning up themselves. There’s actually decent precedent with that idea with the Metro Beautification program that provides neighborhood groups with bags and gloves. You can file that under the category of “If you want something done right, do it yourself.” Nothing wrong with that but with some jobs it helps if you have a little up. A perfect example is if you’ve got junk you need to get rid of. Instead of renting a truck, loading it up and then giving up your free Saturday afternoon to drive your junk to a nearby dump you could simply hire Junk King Nashville to take care of the job.
Junk King is a professional junk hauling company that is part of a national franchise. Being part of the national company means that the Nashville branch has to follow the high standards of customer service otherwise they can no longer call themselves Junk King. That’s important because Junk King has quickly assumed the number one status for junk haulers. What does that mean for your? If you’ve got junk then Junk King is standing by to help.
When you hire Junk King Nashville you’ll actually be hiring two hard working crew members and a big truck. By big we mean big enough to take away an entire home worth of furnishings. In fact, Junk King has often been called on to do just that. Surely, you can find plenty of stuff you want to get rid of.
Keep in mind that it doesn’t have to be indoor junk you can get rid of. If you’ve got junk taking up space in your yard then the Junk King crew will have no problem carting that off as well. This includes debris left over from the last storm, piles of dirt and chunks of broken patio concrete. First decide what you want thrown out. Leave it right where it is because the Junk King Nashville crew will go to wherever your stuff is whether that’s down the basement or up in the attic. Next, call Junk King and set up an appointment to get a free estimate. When you agree to that affordable price you can wave good-bye to all your junk because it will be gone in no time!
There are some things in life that a just plain wrong. According to the Metro Beautification and Environment Commission that list includes networking at a funeral, breaking up on Valentine’s Day, proposing marriage on a blind date and littering. Actually, it is littering that is the real focus of this tongue-in-cheek campaign. When you get right down to it, littering is no laughing matter.
Consider that last year, the state of Tennessee paid out $11 million to have litter picked up. Those collection trucks clocked in 12 million miles and loaded up 900 tons of litter. Add in all the gas used and its clear this was a big problem to deal with. The key point is that it doesn’t have to be this way. After all, how much effort does it take to throw out something in a trashcan? Does it really need to be randomly tossed aside?
Then there was the issue of illegal dumping. Sadly, we’ve all been witness to this kind of nonsense. Last year there was 5,163 tons of trash removed from 2,412 illegal dumpsites. Included in that were 4,503 illegally dumped tires. It really doesn’t take a lot of effort to fix this problem. All you need to do is call Junk King Nashville when you’ve got something big and bulky you want tossed away.
Junk King is the professional junk hauling company that has become a mainstay of Nashville. This means they have some high standards to live up to when it comes to providing this type of service.

All you need to do is tell them what you want taken out of your home or out of your yards. You’re also going to be getting a big ol’ truck that you can fill to the rafters if you want. Add it all up and you no longer have any excuse to hold onto junk.
In terms of cost, Junk King Nashville comes out a winner there, too. They’re going to be charging you by the amount of space your junk takes up on their truck. You’re not going to be paying for dump fees, travel time, truck rental or labor costs. If you think you can get a better deal renting a dumpster, forget about it!

“Norris and Paul are very polite, helpful and friendly. I have used Junk King two times, once at my place of business and once at home. Both times Norris and Paul came to do the work and both times it was a job well done. Thank you!” writes a happy Nashville Junk King fan.
Aside for the compliments for Norris and Paul, this poster points out an important feature of Junk King Nashville: They’ll pick up junk from anywhere. Most folks call on Junk King to help them clear up the clutter around their home and yards but they don’t have to stop there. Junk King has also helped many businesses reclaim valuable space they are leasing.
It makes no sense to pay for an office if it is overcrowded with unused furniture or equipment. Junk King can sweep that all away. On certain commercial properties, Junk King is able to come in and remove all the debris left over from a previous tenant. This helps the real estate broker put the space on the market and can help the new business get ready for their own customers.
Here’s another highlight from a customer review:
“The men really went the extra mile to reach the junk in the rafters in my garage that needed to be hauled away. What truly exceeded my expectations was the thoroughness of the cleanup at the end of the junk disposal. They left no crook or cranny un-swept. This was a professional job well done!”
No matter where you junk is currently “living” the Junk King crew will go to pull it out. Even if you didn’t put it there (like the rafters of a garage) they will still find a way to pull it down, pick it up and cart it off. If there is something that needs to be broken down like a hot tub, above ground pool or old tool shed, the Junk King crew will handle that job as well. It might take them a bit more time but that’s no worry for you because you won’t be paying for labor costs. You only pay based on the amount of space your junk takes up in the truck.
Often Junk King Nashville with set up an appointment with you on the same day that you call them. There is no pressure to use their services but once you get the fair estimate and know that the crew and truck are standing by why wouldn’t you put them to work? How else can you describe Junk King?
“Prompt, courteous and professional!”
That says it all!
Spills happen. It can be embarrassing in a restaurant or a hassle in the home but imagine if your next spill was 300 gallons of something. That’s just what happened to the Piedmont Natural Gas Company as they were laying a new gas pipeline. All that drilling caused a slurry spill of over 300 gallons of a clay mixture that poured into Otter Creek. Fortunately, this spill was non-hazardous but it was still a huge mess that meant extra work hours to clean up and a delay in the project. Can you remember the last big mess you made in your home?

The Nashville resident spends about an hour a day doing the unthinkable: She picks up trash along the streets near her home on Broadmoor Drive. This isn’t something that is a one-time fad fro Lucy. She’s been doing this for the last ten years. It started out when she was just cleaning up the trash that ended up on her front yard but that soon expanded to her neighbors’ yards and then all around the community. Lucy isn’t going to wait for the city to come around and clean and she encourages others to do the same.

How old is your stove? It’s a legitimate question especially if you’ve been noticing that it’s not quite working as it once did. Just like every other major kitchen appliance your stove will wear down over time. If you’re in the market for a new stove you might have a hard time finding a store that actually sells them. This is crucial because you want to make sure if you buy a stove with a warranty that the store you buy it from is going to be around long enough to service your appliance.
Since you’re buying new, you get to pick from a wide array of features. Do you know how a self-cleaning oven works? That means the stove has the ability to blast the oven with a burst of extremely high heat that reduces any type of residue to a pile of ash. You still have to wipe up the ash when the oven cools off. It’s not like a little robot shows up to do the job. You might be better off cleaning the stove the old-fashioned way as opposed to paying for a feature that isn’t all that big of deal to begin with.
A convection oven will come with a steeper price tag but if you do a lot of cooking this might be a terrific upgrade. With the convention oven you’ll see a fan or two as part of the design. Those fans allow for the heat to be circulated during the cooking process. This in turn makes for a more even cooking experience. It also cooks food a lot faster so you might have to adjust your recipes.
When it comes to clean up, you just can’t beat a smooth top range. The heating units are kept under a ceramic top and clean up is as easy as wiping down with a sponge. The only drawback with a ceramic stovetop is that is scratches rather easily. This means you probably couldn’t use cast iron cookware unless you want your surface all scuffed up. Coil burners are another way to go but these are extremely difficult to keep clean and the coils will eventually have to be replaced.
As for stove finishes, you’ll have the chance to spice things up with a bold color like red or black. Just think about what the rest of your kitchen looks like. You don’t want a single appliance standing out like a sore thumb.
When you’re ready to swap out the old stove for the new, make sure you’ve got Junk King Nashville on standby alert. These are Nashville’s professional junk haulers who will be able to take away your stove and any other bulky item you want to toss out, and get rid of it in an eco-friendly and responsible manner. Plan it right and you can have the old stove taken out in the morning and the new stove brought in at night without skipping a beat. That’s the promise with Junk King Nashville – efficient and eco-friendly hauling to make your life easier, and clutter free.

If you’ve got kids in the house then there is no reason why they can’t be put to some cleaning chores. Let them dust the baseboards or at the very least clean up their rooms. If toddlers are part of the equation then the best help might come from asking someone to watch them while you dive into the cleaning.
