It will improve your home’s curb appeal and could help you avoid a city fine.
How to Get Rid of Junk
There are a few ways you could get rid of your junk. The first is to haul it away yourself. This can be fine if the junk you have is fairly small, lightweight, or easy to move. It’s also an option if you have a truck or other vehicle you can use to haul the junk to the landfill. If you don’t, or if you’re dealing with a large amount of garbage, hauling it away yourself can be a pain. You may have to try to find a truck to borrow, and you may need to get several family members or friends involved. It can also be a lot of work and could potentially take up an entire day or a weekend.
Another option is to use Houston’s bulk junk waste removal. This is a free service that is a part of your standard garbage fee. However, there are some downsides to using this service. The city will only take specific items. For example, they will not take any contractor-created debris, which means junk from remodeling projects cannot be put out for collection. You also must have a licensed technician remove refrigerant from appliances and give you a tag to place on the item. Finally, you’re restricted to eight cubic yards of waste. The city also only picks up bulk waste during specific months. If you miss the once-per-period pickup, you may have to wait two months before you can put the junk out again.
The third option is to give us a call. Let Junk King come collect all of your garbage, debris, and other junk. Our teams have the necessary vehicles and equipment to do so quickly and safely. We will take almost anything as long as it doesn’t contain hazardous materials. We will take refrigerators and other appliances that contain refrigerant. Finally, we will come out when you need us and haul away as much junk as you have. There’s no limit on how much we will take, and you can call us as often as you need.
How to Prepare for Junk Removal in North Houston
Ready to get rid of some junk? There are a few ways to prepare for our visit. The first is to determine what it is you need to get rid of. In some cases, this is easy. If you have a sofa with a ripped back or a broken support, it needs to go. The same is true of a washing machine that doesn’t work and cannot be easily repaired.
In some cases, though, you may need to sort through stuff to determine what’s junk and what isn’t. If you’ve inherited your parent’s home, for example, you may know that you need to get rid of some stuff, but you may also want to keep some items. You’ll need to go through everything and set aside what you need us to pick up so we know exactly what you want gone.
While sorting through old clothing, papers, and other items is helpful to us if you know you want to keep some of it, you don’t necessarily have to move all the junk into one place. For example, you can leave furniture and appliances where they are. Just point out what you want us to remove, and we will handle it. This includes items in your yard such as tree limbs and other debris. Another option is to tag items with a sticky note or other indicator so we know what you want us to remove.
Complete Projects if Possible
If you’re working on a home DIY or other project that is creating waste and garbage, try to wait until you have all of the debris before calling us. This will help us give you a more accurate estimate and ensure we only have to come collect debris once. In some cases, this is simple. For example, if you’re doing a yard renovation, you may be able to stack up all the trimmed tree branches and other waste in one section of your yard. However, if you’re doing a larger renovation, it could take several days or even a week to complete all of the demo. What do you do with that garbage?
You can stack it in the garage or other area. If you don’t have that space, though, one option is to rent a dumpster. Junk King offers dumpster rentals ranging from several days to a week or more. You only pay for the amount of space in the dumpster that you use, too. If you only fill it up halfway, you will pay less than if you used the entire dumpster. This is a good option if you know you’ll need time to gather your junk but don’t have a space to store it. When you’re done with the dumpster, call us and we will collect it.
Is Your Junk Ready for Pickup?
After you’ve sorted through your possessions and know what you want us to pick up, it’s time to give us a call. We offer free estimates for every job, and there’s no obligation to use our services. We try to make everything as easy for you as we possibly can. To that end, we offer several ways of reaching out to us. You can give us a call at 1-888-888-JUNK and talk to one of our expert customer service representatives. They will ask you several questions about what you need hauled away and provide you with a quote. Another option is to text pictures of the junk to 1-737-888-5865. We will look over the images and ask any follow-up questions we may have.
If you have a lot of junk, you can also call us and ask us to send someone over to give you an in-person quote. We often bring one of our large junk trucks with us. After we take a look at what you have and give you a quote, we can get to work right away if you accept the estimate. This means you can get rid of all of that junk immediately, and there’s no need for a second appointment.
