Preparing for Junk Removal in North Houston, Texas


Do you have old appliances taking up space in your garage? Got some broken or worn-out furniture you “temporarily” moved into the spare bedroom for a few days until you could get rid of it, but it’s sat there for years? No matter what junk you’ve got taking up space, it needs to go. Junk King can get rid of old furniture, busted appliances, and much more. We’re here for all of your junk hauling needs in North Houston, Texas.

 

Don’t Put Off Junk Removal in North Houston

Does it really matter that you have an old refrigerator in the garage or a stained chair in the back room? It may not seem like it costs you anything to keep this junk, but it does. You could use that space for something else. Why keep something you can’t use or that you’re not happy with? Think of what you could do with that extra space in the garage or in your home.

Other junk may be ruining your home’s appeal. If you have yard debris or a shed that’s falling down, people notice. It makes your street and your overall neighborhood look bad. In some areas, you may even be subject to fines if you have junk sitting out for too long. Don’t put off getting rid of this garbage. 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.

 

Why Junk King?

Why hire Junk King of North Houston? We’re consistently ranked as one of the top junk removal services in the area and the nation. Our previous customers have reviewed us as being “reasonably priced and efficient” and that we are “on time, quick, and know what they’re doing.” Our pricing structure is unique in that you only pay for the amount of space in our truck that your junk takes up. You won’t be paying for a huge truck when you only have an old chair or refrigerator to get rid of.

Another benefit to working with Junk King is that we recycle or donate as much as we can. We believe in keeping the earth safe, and one way of doing so is to reduce the amount of stuff that goes into landfills. We donate gently used furniture and appliances to local charities, and we sort out the recyclable materials to send to recycling centers.

Contact Junk King of North Houston today to arrange for a free estimate and to make an appointment to have that junk hauled off.

Junk King North Houston Helps Houston Realtors

Realtors Need Junk King of North Houston as the Ace Up Their Sleeve


As a real estate agent, you have many things on your plate. This is especially true if you deal with foreclosed homes or homes being sold as-is. These homes as well as those that have been inherited or that were rental properties the owner is now attempting to sell off may not be in the best shape. They may also have some junk or abandoned property inside that needs to be removed before repairs can be made or the property shown. If you regularly deal with properties like this, you need a reliable partner to handle the trash. Junk King of North Houston is your ace in the hole for these properties.

 

Why Do Real Estate Agents Need Junk King?

There are many reasons why you may want to partner with a junk removal service. You may not have the time or resources to clean out these properties yourself. Some may be so bad that you don’t even know where to start. The previous owners or tenants may have simply walked away, especially if they were not current on their mortgage or rent.

No one else is going to clean out the junk left behind, especially on a foreclosed home. In this case, the bank or lender simply wants to offload the property as soon as they can to make back a little bit of the money they’ve lost. If you’re an agent who often works with these lenders, you know you’re not going to get the same amount of cooperation from these organizations as you would from a private seller.

You could leave it for the new buyers, but few people want to buy a house full of garbage. Those who do are often flippers looking to pay as little as possible for a property. The less they pay, the lower your commission is. Let’s look at these reasons more in-depth so you can have a better idea of how exactly Junk King of Houston North can help your real estate business.

 Heavy Lifting, Without Moving A Muscle

Junk King Saves You Time and Money

As a real estate office, you and your team are focused on promoting houses and closing deals. You work tirelessly to ensure your clients get the best deal for their home, whether they’re buying it or selling it. You don’t have the time to clean out properties, nor do you have the expertise to do so quickly and effectively.

Junk King does. Our crew has cleaned out homes full of garbage. We’ve worked on some of the worst hoarder houses you can imagine, so your properties won’t shock us. We will come in and get to work right away. Our employees are trained to understand how to safely remove heavy, bulky, and awkwardly shaped items. Where others may injure themselves or damage the walls or doorframes trying to get these things out, we won’t. We also have the proper safety equipment and other tools needed to move even the heaviest items.

Because we quickly clean out properties, you don’t have to wait as long to photograph them or show potential buyers the space. If the seller is going to renovate, they can also get to work right away. This cuts down the amount of time the property sits empty. The faster you can get it on the market, the less time the seller has to continue paying the mortgage on the property or handling the upkeep.

 New call-to-action

Empty Properties Sell Faster

Another reason to have Junk King come in and empty out a home is to sell it faster and easier. While staged properties do sell very quickly, that’s not always an option if the seller doesn’t want to pay for staging or if it’s a foreclosure property. In these cases, the seller often simply wants to offload the property as quickly as they can.

If the home is full of garbage, it can be very difficult for potential buyers to get past what they’re seeing. Instead of imagining a cozy home full of their own furniture, they see broken appliances, piles of trash, and other junk. They also see that they’re going to have to do a lot of work cleaning out the property before they can even think about transforming it into a home someone would want to live in. Even flippers may have reservations about taking on a junk house, especially if they haven’t been flipping homes very long.

Homes that are full of old furniture and other garbage also look smaller. Large items draw the eye and make it harder to get a feel for how big a room actually is. The same is true if you have a lot of small items or bags of trash in a room. The more clutter there is, the smaller and more claustrophobic the space will feel. By emptying it out, a property will look and feel much larger than it actually is, helping it sell faster.

 

Let Us Improve a Home’s Curb Appeal

Real estate experts know that often, potential buyers have already made up their minds about a home before they even walk in the door. They judge it from how it looks from the curb. If a home has low curb appeal, it often doesn’t matter how great the house looks inside. The potential buyers may decide to not even bother because of how the house looks from the outside.

While we don’t help with peeling paint or broken windows, Junk King can help remove junk and other debris from the property. We will even deal with yard debris. You can send in your landscapers and tree trimmers to give the yard an overhaul, then call us to haul away all the limbs, dead bushes, and other garbage. We can clean out sheds, garages, and other outbuildings, too. If you’ve demolished an old shed, we will even haul it away. When we’re done, the property will look so much better.

What We Haul Away Here at Junk King of North Houston

We will haul away just about everything you have on hand. While other junk removal companies may have some limits on what they will take, Junk King doesn’t. The only thing we won’t take is hazardous waste. We handle everything else, including furniture, appliances, electronics, mattresses, yard debris, and construction waste

To hire Junk King North Houston to take care of your junk, all you have to do is call, text, or send us an online message. We will provide you with a free, no-obligation quote. We will even come to the property to do a full walk-through if you have a lot of junk. Often, we can give you a quote right then and there. We may even bring one of our large trucks with us. If you accept the quote, we can go to work right away. This means it’s possible we will be able to clean out the property on the same day you call us. You can then immediately go to work selling it.

Anything that is truly trash will be disposed of, but we do try to recycle or donate as much as we can. We believe in protecting the environment by reducing how much goes into landfills. We will sort out any recyclable materials from the junk we collect and take them to a local recycling center. We also take gently used furniture or appliances that still work to a local charity or other organization that helps those in need. In the end, we typically recycle or donate over 90 percent of everything we collect.

 

Junk King Also Offers Dumpster Rental

If you have a home the seller needs to do some work on, we can also help by bringing one of our dumpsters. We rent dumpsters on a three-, five-, or seven-day schedule. Once the dumpster is full or your project is finished, just give us a call and we will come pick it up. This often works better for homes that need some remodeling. The renovation team can fill up the dumpster as they complete demo. This way, you don’t have debris piling up or need us to come every day.

Declutter Your Home as You Pack for Your Move: Five Key Steps

When people think of a company like Junk King Houston North they think of us removing big things: appliances, house clean outs, old furniture removal, yard clean ups, etc. You might be surprised to know a big part of our business is just helping people declutter – and you’d be even more surprised to see how much extra stuff you have when you start decluttering. A great time to declutter is when you are about to move. You have to pack and unpack all your stuff anyway, right? Why not get rid of the items you don’t need and let us reuse and recycle as much as possible now? Here are our tips for decluttering before you move:

Your moving day is coming up. That must mean it’s time to start packing boxes, but wait. Everything you pack you’ll pay to move. Then, you’ll need to unpack all those things and deal with them at your new place. Why not use your move as a natural opportunity to declutter your house?

Declutter while you pack to keep your new home clean and fresh
Imagine yourself unpacking in your new home. Each box you open contains only the things you want and need. No clutter and no junk. If you declutter as you pack for your move, this can be you.

Decluttering also improves your health
Besides saving you money, there are health benefits to decluttering. Research shows that having a less cluttered home can help your memory function better, and it reduces stress responses in your body. So while you’re packing for your move, you can improve your health by leaving behind piles of stuff you don’t need.

Step 1: Start with clearing a space for your packed boxes.

Your packing and decluttering will be easier if you have a clear space to store your packed boxes as you prepare to move. If you have a garage, this is a great place to start. If you don’t, then use a storage room, spare room or large closet. If you’re tight for space, section off an area of your home that you’ll use for this purpose.

Starting in this space, label four boxes or bins: 1) keep; 2) discard (and then can mean having Junk King Houston North donate, recycle, or dispose of your items) . This will be your sorting system as you go through each of the items in this area. Make your “keep” box one of your moving boxes. This will save you time. You’ll only need to handle your “keep” items once. Once you select the items to keep, pack them straight into a moving box.

As you go through the items in this space, try to touch an item only once and decide what to do with it. Remember that each thing you put in a box you’re welcoming into your new home. If you don’t want it there, don’t pack it. If you have sentimental items in this space, place them in another room to deal with later.

Step 2: Bathrooms are a great place to begin decluttering.

Once you’ve cleared the space where you’ll store your packed boxes, you’re ready to move onto decluttering a small area. We have emotional ties to many of our items, so it’s more difficult to make decisions about them. Leave these decisions for later when you’ve built momentum from decluttering other things in your home.

The bathroom is an easy place to start. Grab two boxes or bins and label them as we discussed earlier. You’re ready to start sorting. You’ll usually find several beauty products that haven’t been used or maybe partial bottles of products that you didn’t like. Now is the time to clear out all these items. Unused products can be useful to others, so place them in the give away box. Remember to check the expiry dates on items like makeup, hair products, etc. Most of these products have a shelf life.

For bathrooms, there are some items you’ll need before you move. You can keep these aside in a small bin, so they are easy to grab when the time comes. For things like toilet paper, estimate what you’ll need until you move and pack the rest. You can do the same with towels. Keep out a few and pack the rest.

Step 3: Use your momentum to tackle decluttering paperwork.

As much as we use computers and smartphones, we all seem to accumulate paperwork over time. Chances are you have boxes of old paperwork, and you don’t want to pay to move paperwork you haven’t looked at in years.

For paper sorting, label four boxes or bins: 1) keep; 2) recycle; 3) shred; and 4) garbage. If you have a lot of old papers, sorting might take a while, so be sure to take breaks as you sort. Here are a few things to consider as you’re decluttering:
Check with your country’s regulations on tax records to find out how long you’re required to keep these records.
If you’re concerned about financial papers, you can box them up and take them to a professional shredding service, or shed them yourself before you move.
Sort the papers you’re keeping into simple categories as you go (home, car, insurance, warranties, etc.). They’ll be easy to deal with when you unpack.
Get rid of old schoolwork or college/university papers. It’s unlikely you’re going to need term papers you wrote years ago. If they’re sentimental, either take a picture of the cover or keep just one example. For children’s schoolwork, select some meaningful pieces and let the rest go. Having a few important pieces is more manageable than keeping boxes that will just go into storage in your new place.

Step 4: Kitchens are often full of clutter. Keep only what you regularly use.

If you’re like most people, you probably have kitchen gadgets or appliances that were gifts or bought with good intentions, but they are items you rarely use. It’s better to sell or give these items away than have them take up space in your new kitchen.

Another source of kitchen clutter are plastic storage containers (so many with missing lids!). You likely don’t use most of the containers you have, and the ones with missing lids are just frustrating. Keep a few and give away or recycle the rest. The fewer kitchen items you have, the clearer your countertops will be in your new space. Everything will fit away neatly in the cupboards.

Step 5: Dealing with sentimental items: find ways to keep the memories without the clutter.

It’s hard to let go of items that are tied to memories. That’s why it’s best to leave these decisions to the end (once you’ve seen the success of your other decluttering). Really stop to think about what these items are doing for you. For example, maybe you’ve had a sports jersey in a box for ten years. What good is it doing packed away in a box? Give yourself permission to let go of things that you don’t use or want to display.

For special clothes, you can have old t-shirts or baby clothes, made into a patchwork quilt or you can frame a few of them to display. Another idea for special clothes is to just keep a few important items, such as items you’d like to pass on to your children, rather than a full box.

Keep the vision of your new, clean space in your mind as you pack
You can use the sorting process to declutter all the areas of your home as your pack. As you go through the process, keep a vision of your new place in your mind. Focus on the relief you’ll feel when you’re moving in with fewer items that are all truly useful and meaningful to you.

You’ll be surprised how many items you might end up with after you declutter as you pack. And now you might find some of those bigger items Junk King Houston North is known for: appliances you need removed, old furniture you’d like donated, a mattress that’s past its prime and needs mattress disposal. Junk King Houston North can help you tackle any clutter removal – big or small!
