Don’t Turn Your Pittsburgh Home Into A Storage Unit

Do you know everything you’re keeping in your closet? What about up in the attic on down in the basement? Sure, you can see some of the big things like a worn out sofa or broken washing machine. Those big items are easy to pick out and decide to have hauled away. But what about all the stuff in those many boxes? Maybe it’s time to finally go through those boxes and think about clearing out your home’s storage unit. The good news is that you won’t have to do it alone. Junk King is standing by to pitch in with the junk removal help.

Before calling to set up your junk removal appointment with Junk King, you’ll want to go through those boxes and other areas in your home to see exactly what you are going to throw out. That list can change between the first phone call and actual appointment but it will help if you can provide Junk King with a general idea. For instance, you might say that you’re cleaning out a garage or a couple of closets. For that, you’ll be assigned the standard two-man moving crew from Junk King. That crew will arrive in a truck big enough to haul away whatever you’re getting rid of. If you were to tell Junk King that you’re dealing with a major hoarding type situation, they could send over additional crewmembers and trucks. It’s not a stretch for a foreclosure cleanout to take two or three truckloads of junk.

At least you won’t have to be loading up any of that junk. Many homeowners like to pitch in and help a service crew but that is not necessary with Junk King. You don’t have to lift anything. Just tell the Junk King crew what you want taken away and they’ll handle the rest.

Along with the fast junk removal, Junk King will also help the Pittsburgh environment stay green. That’s because they’ll be recycling or donating the bulk of what they collect from your home. As they are loading, they are also sorting. The Junk King crew will set aside those items that can be reused. Those will go to a local charity. The recyclables will end up at the appropriate facility. You don’t have to request this added service. It’s all part of the deal. With Junk King on the job, your home storage unit will be cleared out in a flash.
