Junk King North Houston Commercial Dumpster Rental Office Relocation

Make the Most of Your Commercial Dumpster Rental

There are many reasons why your business may need to rent a dumpster. When you do need to get rid of a lot of junk quickly, it’s often the best option. However, you are also likely very aware of your budget as a business owner. You’ll want to make the most of your commercial dumpster when you have it, so you don’t have to extend your rental period or do anything else that will cost you more. That’s why if you’re looking for a dumpster rental in Houston, you’ll want to talk to Junk King. Here are a few ways you can get the most out of your dumpster and why Junk King should be your go-to partner for dumpsters and other junk removal needs.

Do You Need a Commercial Dumpster?

The first step in getting the most out of your dumpster is to make certain that you need one. Most businesses will have arranged some form of weekly bulk garbage pick-up. However, there may be times when you need to throw away a lot more than what that dumpster will hold. When that’s the case, it’s time to rent a commercial dumpster. Here are a few of the instances when you may need to look into dumpster rental.


You’re Starting a New Business

When you start a new business, you likely don’t have any garbage collection contracts in place. This means you don’t have any dumpster on-site, so renting a commercial dumpster is really your only option. Depending on the condition of the office space you’ve purchased or are renting, you may need to do some major renovations. There may be some junk to get rid of, and you may need to have some walls taken down or put up. All of this generates debris that you have to get rid of, and a commercial dumpster is the easiest solution for that. You can put the debris straight into the dumpster instead of piling it up somewhere.


You’re Moving to a New Location

Similarly, when moving to a new location, you may not have your weekly trash collection service set up at the new office. However, you may need to clean out or remodel the space to make it work for your needs. Bringing in a junk removal service or hiring a commercial dumpster is often the best option. Hiring Junk King to haul away the stuff you don’t need works well if all you’re doing is a clean-out. We will come pick up those left-behind desks, old shelving units, or whatever else you have.

However, if you’re doing a remodel, you may want a dumpster. This way, you have a space to throw the old cabinets, doors, flooring, and other debris, and it doesn’t have to pile up somewhere. Whether you need us to haul junk away or decide a dumpster is the way to go, be sure to include some plan for getting rid of trash and debris when planning your commercial renovation.


You’re Doing a Major Remodel

If you’re remodeling, you may already have garbage service at your location. However, a major remodel will likely create more debris than your standard trash service can take in a week. You will likely need to get an additional dumpster just to hold all of the trash the remodel generates. You may also be getting rid of old desks, shelves, and other items. You’ll need a large commercial dumpster to hold all of that. You may need a dumpster even if you’re doing a major clean-out. Even if you’re not moving walls, you may find that you have so much old junk that you need a dumpster or a junk removal company to handle it all.

What’s the Right Dumpster Size?

Now that you’ve decided you need a dumpster, it’s time to figure out what size you need. Some commercial dumpsters are huge. These dumpsters may seem like the perfect option, but you may find that they have a few drawbacks. First, they may actually be too big. You don’t get a good return on your dumpster rental if you only use a small amount of its space. Before renting your dumpster, take a good look at how much trash and debris you will have. You may realize that you don’t need the largest one out of the different dumpster sizes available. Your contractor can help estimate how much debris will come from the remodel itself. Then consider what else you’re getting rid of.

Second, where are you going to put your dumpster? A large dumpster is very heavy even when it’s empty, and it can easily make deep impressions in the yard or even crack a driveway as it fills up. Be sure you take this into consideration. You don’t want to damage your parking lot or landscaping with a huge dumpster, especially if a smaller option will work just as well.


Know What You Can Dispose of

What can you put in your dumpster? If you don’t know, you run the risk of additional fees being added to your cost. Here at Junk King, we can take just about anything, but we cannot handle anything hazardous. If you put hazardous waste in a dumpster, it can harm our crews and could potentially damage the dumpster itself. For anything that we can’t take, you’ll need to contact a hazardous waste disposal service.


Heavy Lifting, Without Moving A Muscle


Here are some of the things you can place in our commercial dumpsters:

Furniture, including desks, shelves, chairs, and tables.
Appliances, including refrigerators and microwaves.
Electronic waste such as computers, televisions, and cell phones.
Construction waste from remodeling projects.
–  Garbage and trash.

Our junk removal team can take anything you can put in one of our dumpsters. If you ever have any questions about what we can take, just ask.

Keep Your Budget in Mind

Budgeting is vital if you want to keep your business in the black. Even budgeting for trash is vital to getting the best return on your investment. While renting a dumpster for a remodel or clean-out is something you’ll only do every now and then, you still need to budget for it. You want to make certain you find an affordable dumpster rental service, especially if you’re already spending a lot of money to remodel your office, warehouse, or other commercial space. It may be a small line item, but it’s still important that you shop around.

This is where Junk King’s unique pricing structure works in your favor. Instead of paying a flat fee for the dumpster, we charge by how much you use. Our cost is based on a few factors—first, the length of time. You can rent our dumpsters for three, five, or seven days. Next, we have a minimum cost. This is the least amount you’ll pay. If you only use a little bit of the dumpster, you’ll be charged this amount.

What if you fill the entire dumpster? Then you’ll pay the full cost. There’s also a rate for filling the dumpster about halfway, which is about 30% off the cost of a full dumpster. There are no other charges or fees added to the cost. You’ll pay based on how long you have the dumpster and how full it is at the end. That’s it. This means if you’re just cleaning out your retail location, you may find that you don’t use half of the space. Why pay for space you don’t use? We don’t think you should, so we make use of our unique tier system to help you save money.


At Junk King North Houston, We Commit to the Schedule

Your entire schedule can be thrown off if your dumpster isn’t delivered on time. When you make an appointment with Junk King, we stick to that schedule. We’ll pull up with your roll off dumpster trailer on the day, and at the time we agreed to. You can get to work filling the dumpster right away, and we’ll be back at the scheduled time to pick it up. If you need to have the dumpster picked up early, just give us a call, and we will do our best to work you into our schedule.

Junk King North Houston Foreclosure Resources

Foreclosure Resources to Have as a Landlord

Suppose you’re a real estate investor, a lender, or another professional who is involved in real estate transactions. In that case, you may have to deal with one of the most unpleasant parts of this industry: foreclosure. Foreclosing on properties essentially means repossessing someone’s home. It’s not something you want to do, but if the borrower is too far behind on payments or has simply abandoned the property, it may be a process you have to take in order to protect your own income and investment. As a landlord or lender, it’s essential that you understand the process and that you follow the law when evicting and foreclosing on someone. You also need to understand what foreclosure resources are available to help you and your borrowers.


What Is Foreclosure?

Foreclosing on a property is a last resort lenders, and landlords have when the borrower or tenant fails to make their loan payments. Several laws and regulations govern it, and it’s typically never the first option. Borrowers usually have to miss several payments in a row for lenders to foreclose on them.

In order to begin the eviction and foreclosure process, you may need to go to court. A judicial foreclosure is one ordered by the court after presenting your case to the judge. If it’s clear the borrowers have missed several payments and are unlikely to be able to catch up or even start making payments again, the judge is likely to grant the foreclosure. In some states, it’s possible to get a nonjudicial foreclosure. This option doesn’t require going through the courts, but it’s not available in all states. One such nonjudicial foreclosure is called a power of sale foreclosure and is included as a mortgage contract clause.

The Foreclosure Process

Foreclosures, even those that don’t go through the courts, take time. In fact, it often takes more than a year to fully complete the foreclosure process. This is because you must give borrowers a chance to become current on their payments. They also have to miss at least three months of payments before they can be considered in default. In some cases, you may have to wait as long as six months before you can begin the foreclosure process.

Once the required amount of time has passed, and the borrowers have made no move to make a payment, you have to file what is called a Notice of Default. You send this notice via certified mail to the borrower and file a copy with the recorder’s office. This notice includes how much the borrower owes in principle, interest, and late fees.

The borrower now has the chance to pay the amount listed, work with you to find a resolution, or even sell the home in a short sale in order to pay you what they owe. This pre-foreclosure period lasts for a specified time (usually outlined by local foreclosure laws). Once it’s over, you can file the Notice of Sale paperwork. This notice states your intent to sell the property and recoup whatever money you can on the loan.

The final step is to serve the borrowers with an eviction notice following the sale of the property. They now have to move out of the property. If they do not, you can contact law enforcement for assistance.


The COVID-19 Foreclosure Moratorium

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the US government passed the CARES Act. This act went into effect at the end of March 2020. It included an eviction and foreclosure moratorium section. This meant that landlords could no longer evict tenants or begin the foreclosure process, even if borrowers were months behind on payments. In addition to the moratorium, borrowers could also ask lenders for a mortgage forbearance, and this paused their payments or allowed them to pay less for up to 180 days.

While foreclosures were initially set to resume on August 31, 2020, the moratorium was extended several times. Currently, however, the moratorium has expired. Borrowers were able to enroll for additional forbearance for several months after this, but that period has also ended.

Foreclosure Resources

While the moratorium may be over, there are still a number of foreclosure resources out there for you and your borrowers to take advantage of. For example, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 made 10 billion dollars available to qualified homeowners to help them catch up on back payments.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has also added additional protections for homeowners who were affected by the pandemic. It provides them with additional assistance plans and means to avoid foreclosure. There are also some specific state and local resources you and your borrowers can look into.


Forbearance Can Be a Great Option

Some lenders are hesitant to offer forbearance, seeing it as a way for borrowers who are behind to simply keep living in a property without paying for it for longer. However, forbearance can be a good tool for both of you. For borrowers, it gives them time to get their finances together. If someone lost their job during the pandemic, for example, it’s very likely they fell behind on their payments. If they have found a new job, they have a steady income, but they may not be able to catch up on their mortgage right away. A few months in forbearance can help. Typically, borrowers don’t incur any extra interest or fees while in forbearance, further helping them.

On your side, avoiding foreclosure is the best option. It takes time and money to go through the steps of a foreclosure, and you likely won’t recoup all the money you lent. You avoid taking that loss and then further trying to sell the home to a new buyer.


What to Do if You Do Foreclose

If you do have to foreclose on a property, you want to make certain you follow all relevant laws and regulations. Even if you’ve gone through a foreclosure before, it’s best to check with a local legal expert to make certain you follow any recent changes. As the pandemic continues, it’s also possible another foreclosure moratorium or other regulations will go into effect. Be sure you understand these changes and follow them.

After you have finalized the foreclosure, the borrowers may want to move out before the sale of the property. In this case, you may need to clean out the home before you sell it. An empty house typically sells for more, so it’s a good idea to hire a junk removal service to take care of any furniture, appliances, or other garbage left in the home. Make certain that the borrowers do not want it or that you’ve followed the laws regarding abandoned property before doing so.
