Pittsburgh Foreclosure Cleanout

Take a look at this recent foreclosure cleanout video posted by Junk King. You’re first reaction is probably, “Yikes.” The second reaction would be, “How can someone be so messy?” And the third reaction is sure to be, “I’m glad I don’t have to clean up that mess.” Don’t worry. If you’ve got a mess to deal with, then one call to Junk King will get it taken care of in a snap. With a foreclosure cleanout, you can bet that nothing of value has been left behind. Depending on how long the place has been empty, there could also be issues with rotting food or moldy trash. Once again, not something you need to touch when Junk King is on the scene.

Investing in a foreclosed property is smart business. You can either flip that house or rent it out for an additional revenue stream. Either way, it has to be cleaned up before painters and other workers can make it habitable. You certainly don’t want to show a prospective buyer a house full of trash. On the other hand, that trash shouldn’t keep you from buying a foreclosed home if it is a good deal. Trash only ruins the look of a home. It has nothing to do with plumbing or wiring or foundation. All of those items should be thoroughly inspected before you make the investment.

Although it might take several days to get the home ready for market, the foreclosure cleanout handled by Junk King will only take a single appointment. We’ll make sure there are enough able crewmembers and trucks dispatched to your property to insure that the job can get done in a single session.

Budget is always a concern when you deal with a property investment. You’ll find that Junk King’s foreclosure cleanout is probably the least expensive thing on the renovation list. Junk King will only be charging you a flat rate based on how much space your junk will take up on the back of the truck. Even if it turns out to be a full truckload of trash, you’ll still be paying less then it you had to hire your own crew and rent your own truck. Add it all up and it’s clear that Junk King is the only company to handle your foreclosure cleanout.

Pittsburgh Hot Tub Removal And Junk Hauling

When a construction company needs to clear out a lot, they’ll bring in the heavy equipment. This means bulldozers and tractors. In extreme cases, it can also mean blasting with dynamite. When this happens in residential or urban areas, the crews will use a crane to drop a heavy steel blanket over the area. The blast is then contained by the steel. When that blanket is removed, what was once a boulder has been smashed to bits. Those rocks are easy to load up. Hopefully, your next junk removal task won’t require dynamite but it could still require the use of power tools and a skilled crew. That’s just what you’ll be getting when you hire Junk King.

Consider a hot tub removal. That is the kind of assignment that Junk King excels at. First, they’ll dismantle the motor and frame. What’s left is the large fiberglass tub. If you were there when the tub was brought in, then it probably required a forklift. Now that it is no longer of any value, that tub can be cut into pieces. The Junk King crew will know how to attack this type of job and get it done as efficiently and quickly as possible. Before you know it, you’ll have a wide-open space in your backyard to fill with a garden, a patio, a grill or even a brand new hot tub!

After the Junk King crew has disassembled your hot tub, you can tap them to haul away any other unwanted item from your property. Around your backyard, this can be anything from piles of leaves to a woodshed. In the home, the crews will be happy to go down into the basement or up into the attic if that is where you’re keeping your junk. Clearing out this clutter is a great way to get ready for the upcoming holiday season.

Everything that is collected by Junk King will be dropped off at their depot for sorting. Some items can be tagged for recycling. Others will be earmarked for a local charity. Either way, Junk King is dedicated to keeping its 60% diversion rate going. That would be 60% of junk kept out of local landfills. That’s great news for Pittsburgh. Your hot tub removal and junk hauling chore begins and ends with a call to Junk King.
