San Diego Junk Removal

After this winter, as the days start to turn warmer its safe bet that your list of household projects will grow.  Call it “spring cleaning” or “getting ready for summer.” Either way there is a strong possibility that part of getting ready for the warmer months is going to mean getting rid of a lot of old junk. This might mean clearing out the garage or attic. Or it could mean a remodeling job in the kitchen or bathroom. Any one of those projects is going to generate a lot of garbage. You can try cramming it into trash cans every week but those cans can only hold so much. However, if you live in the San Diego area then best method for getting rid of all that trash would be to hire a professional junk removal company, like Junk King San Diego.

Typically, you wouldn’t hire a San Diego junk removal company to merely pick up your weekly recyclables. These companies come in handy when you’ve got large items like kitchen appliances to get rid of. There’s no way you’ll be able to fit a broken down washing machine or refrigerator into the back of your SUV. You can easily schedule a pick up time for Junk King San Diego to drop by, pick up and get rid of those unwanted appliances.

What about your old, saggy mattress. Did you know that after about five years, a mattress increases in weight by about ten pounds? That would be ten pounds of nastiness in the form of dead skin cells, dirt, dust and bug carcasses. Do you really want to be sleeping in all that? When you buy a new mattress, you’ll want to certainly get rid of the old one. That’s why you might need a San Diego junk removal company to drag out that old mattress.

Keep in mind also that hiring a San Diego junk removal service isn’t just about the household trash.  They can also haul away rotting tree limbs that might have fallen in a storm.  You might have a new gardening project in mind that could mean tearing up plots in your backyard. Do you want all that dirt in your car? Of course not! Let a San Diego junk removal company do the dirty work of getting rid of your yard waste.

If you’re like a lot of folks, then you care about where you junk is going to end up.  Junk King San Diego has adopted an eco-friendly policy. This means we work directly with recycling centers that can break down and recycle all your junk.   Everything from the kitchen appliances to the mattresses to the furniture can be included in our recycling program.  In general, when contacting a junk removal service, don’t hesitate to ask where you’re junk is going to end up.

Junk King San Diego is open for business – if you live in the San Diego area feel free to go online and schedule an estimate or call 1-800-995 (JUNK) to speak with a Junk King representative.

San Diego Furniture Pickup

Everyone’s dream is to live in a good neighborhood. Of course many folks would simply settle for a decent neighborhood.  Generally speaking, residents taking pride in their surroundings tends to separate the good neighborhoods from the bad.  A perfect example of this type of pride can be found around many San Diego neighborhoods where homeowners put in plenty of TLC to their front and back yards. You can see it with the manicured lawns and blooming gardens. Sure, we might have a closet crammed full of junk or a sink stuffed with dirty dishes but on the outside we want things to look nice. However, even with all that hard work, we don’t have control over everyone in the neighborhood. One eyesore that seems to occasionally pop up are random pieces of furniture abandoned by the curbside. That’s the kind of thing that can really bring down the quality of a community. There really isn’t a reason for leaving furniture by the curb when a San Diego furniture pickup company is just a phone call or online booking away from hauling away your useless junk.

People who put furniture out on the curb probably have some good intentions behind their actions. If the furniture is still in decent shape, they might think someone will come along and take it away. Often in these types of situations a sign proclaiming “FREE” is tacked onto the furniture. That’s certainly a nice gesture but what happens if it rains or the furniture is visited by some local critters? Nobody is going to want to take that away no matter how “free” it is! Instead of leaving your “curb deposits” to chance, bring in a professional San Diego furniture pickup crew and let them take it away once and for all.

Most folks already know that putting furniture out on the street is wrong. But sometimes abandoned furniture can land right outside your house and it’s not even yours! Imagine waking up one morning and finding a ratty sofa right around the corner from your home. This is probably from irresponsible people who think they can just dump anything and let somebody else worry about picking it up. You can hope someone will come along to get rid of it, but unfortunately, this abandoned junk could become your problem, especially if there is an ordinance against leaving furniture by the curb. It is conceivable you could be ticketed and fined. This is another perfect opportunity to call in a San Diego furniture pickup company to haul away that unwanted junk.

If you are concerned about where your old furniture might end up, don’t hesitate to ask the furniture pickup company if they are part of a recycling program. Recycling isn’t just for plastic bottles or newspapers. Furniture can be broken down for its raw materials and those materials can then be repurposed which in turn can help us all cut down on our natural resources. In other words, recycling your old sofa can reduce your carbon footprint. Who would have thought that could be possible?  And most importantly, think about how you won’t have to lift a finger to do anything; except of course calling or booking online to set up a free estimate.

Junk Recycling San Diego

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average American generates over 1,600 pounds of garbage each and every year. That’s certainly an amazing amount of trash for just one person.  Unfortunately, much of this garbage that isn’t properly recycled ends up in a landfill which can be harmful to our environment.

There is also a lot of garbage that hasn’t yet been thrown out and is just sitting around- things like broken appliances, computers that don’t work or leftover building supplies.   If you live in the San Diego area and want to get rid of your junk then you should consider hiring a San Diego Junk Hauling service as the perfect way to clear out your clutter and help save the planet.

San Diego Junk Recycling has taken off in recent years as more and more folks become concerned about where their garbage is ending up. There was a time when everything we threw out was merely dumped in a landfill. That landfill was then covered with dirt and left to simmer and stew. As we’ve learn that’s extremely bad for the environment as that garbage breaks down and leaks into the soil. The only way to prevent that from happening is to reduce the amount of garbage going into a landfill and that can only happen through recycling and reuse.

San Diego residents have taken up the call to recycle in a big way. They have accomplished this with their home recycling sorting projects. It now has become a simple daily routine to separate our paper and plastic from our regular garbage and haul it to the curb for pickup. But what about those large items that can’t be picked up by the weekly recycling truck? That’s when you should call in the services of a San Diego green junk hauling company who knows how to responsibly get rid of your junk.

As the name implies, green junk hauling means the company will be taking away all your unwanted trash and delivering it to the various recycling centers around San Diego.  Would you want to spend your precious day off hitting up all those different spots? Of course not. That’s why green junk hauling companies can take the burden off your shoulders and make sure you junk is dropped off at the right facility.
Of course green junk hauling doesn’t just have to be just about junk. It can also apply to what use to be actually green. This could mean any fallen tree limbs or dead shrubs. And if you’re about to undertake a major renovation of your backyard, then chances are you might have plenty of old sod or dirt that needs to be removed. A junk hauling service can certainly handle those loads as well.

Feel free to get in touch with Junk King North San Diego who recycles up to 60% of hauled materials, to book a free on site junk removal estimate.

You can easily spend an entire Saturday afternoon simply by traveling from yard sale to yard sale. Even with the popularity of the on-line “yard sale” Ebay, there is still something fun about putting up your own sale and getting a chance to have cash in hand at the end of the day. Unfortunately, you might also be left with all the stuff you couldn’t sell. These items can be now officially classified as junk. And the best way to handle junk is by calling in a San Diego hauling company to cart it all off.
Of course there might be some items around your home that aren’t going to be sold no matter what the price is. You might not even be able to give this stuff away!.

Quite often these heavy junk items land in one particular spot like a basement or garage and then are quickly forgotten about. That is until you need that space back!

A San Diego hauling company is up to the challenge of removing whatever clutter you want to get rid of. No item is too big or too small.
With family budgets being tightened, more often folks are foregoing the extended vacations and opting to stay home. This could mean taking on some new projects like revitalizing the backyard. Perhaps you want to plant a garden or splurge on a hot tub? With any backyard project like that, you might be digging up a lot of sod or busting up a patio. What happens to all that refuse? Let a San Diego hauling company worry about that. Their hardworking crews can arrive at your home at the prearranged time and remove all that earth and cement to make way for your new project.

If you’re about to start any one of those types of projects then you’re going to be creating a lot of trash. Make sure to have a San Diego hauling service on stand by to take away all that garbage and allow you to get your project done quickly.
San Diego hauling services can be utilized for removing a single piece of old furniture like a sofa or mattress or they can be used for a major truck load full of garbage you want removed.

San Diego Junk Hauling – After the Yard Sale is Over

Every now and again you’ll come across a story of someone finding a treasure in a pile of junk. Of course those “treasure finds” are a rare occurrence. Quite often junk is just that: junk. And the best way to get rid of worthless junk is by hiring a professional San Diego junk hauling service.

There’s no doubt that a major event like the San Diego Comic Con is going to leave behind plenty of trash. You’re just not going to have that many people gathered in one place without tons of garbage being left behind. The organizers of the convention will certainly be bringing in the big guns of junk hauling to move out all that left behind garbage. But you don’t need to have mountains of trash to utilize a San Diego junk hauling company. Maybe you just have a couple of pieces of ratty furniture collecting dust and mildew in your garage or basement. Maybe it’s a pile of leftover wood scraps and drywall used on a remodel project. None of that stuff is going to be worth anything; it’s just taking up space so get rid of it!

Another time when folks turn to a professional junk hauling service is when they are planning a major renovation project. You can bet that any new landscaping project is going to churn up plenty of unwanted sod, shrubs and possible even a dead tree or two. Junk haulers can take away all of your yard refuse. And if you’re worried about where your junk is going to end up, make sure the junk hauling company you’ve hired has gone green. There’s no excuse for a junk hauling company not to take advantage of all the recycling centers located around the San Diego area. Not everything you throw away can be recycled but when it comes to old furniture, scrap metal or electronic equipment that can all be recycled and reused.

Suppose you decide to cash in on some of your own stuff. A weekend doesn’t go by in San Diego when there aren’t literally hundreds of yard sales. After hauling all your stuff to the front lawn, you hope to sell it all so you won’t have to haul it back into storage. But what happens if you don’t sell it? Clearly you’re left with junk you don’t want. Are you going to have a yard sale every week? Of course not! Perhaps the best time to call in a San Diego junk hauler is right after your yard sale. The experience crews can take away all your unsold stuff in one swoop.

San Diego Foreclosure Clean Out

Most of the indications of how strong or week our economy is doing can be traced to the housing market. When construction booms things are great. People are working, materials are being ordered and it’s a win/win all around. However, when foreclosure strikes, it shows there is trouble on the horizon. But for every real estate misfortune, there is also opportunity. Foreclosures can provide quick turn around to interested home buyers. The key is to make sure that the property is in decent selling condition. Hiring a San Diego foreclosure clean out company is the best way to get that house ready to be put back on the market.

Even though it might have taken a homeowner a lifetime to gather up a house full of belongings, they can simply walk away from it all in the hopes of starting fresh. What they leave behind is essentially junk that needs to be hauled away. This junk can come in the form of old furniture, broken kitchen appliances, mattresses, rugs and even the occasional pile of junked auto parts. No prospective home buyer wants to see all that junk. Getting rid of it in one trip is the best option and that’s just what a professional San Diego foreclosure clean out company can do for you.

A foreclosure clean out company is really a fancy way of saying junk haulers. They don’t mind being called that because that’s just what they do: haul junk! An experienced junk removal service can provide complete estimates for the cost of the job. They’ll also be able to tell you exactly when the job can get done. This is crucial if you are scheduling a house to quickly come back on the market.

Many realtors know that one of the tricks in selling a home is to have it “staged” with new furniture. It helps if prospective buyers can see the possibilities of living spaces rather then just empty rooms. Of course to properly stage a home, you’ll need to get rid of whatever has been left behind and that is certainly not a job you should do for yourself. A team of junk haulers can sweep through a house and have it emptied from top to bottom. This can also allow you to do any painting or touch ups to the walls and floors.

The other benefit with bringing in a professional junk hauling crew is they’ll know just where to dump all the garbage. This could mean a combination of landfills and recycling centers. Many items left behind from a foreclosure might be able to become recycled materials. This offers a partially positive outcome for dire situation like a foreclosure. There is enough worked required to get a foreclosed home ready to sell. Having a foreclosure clean out crew remove all the junk will probably be the easiest part of the process! Once you’ve discovered how simple and effective hiring a junk hauling company can be, you’ll become a regular customer!  If you’re interested in junk hauling services, contact Junk King San Diego.  Feel free to book a free on-site estimate today, or call 1-888-888-JUNK.

San Diego Yard Waste Removal

San Diego can get pretty hot during the summer, with 100 degree temperatures were the norm. The blazing heat often has San Diego residents seeking relief anywhere they can.

Of course, the first real causality in a heat wave are all the backyard plants, flowers and shrubs. When the weather turns cooler and you venture out into your yard, you might find a mini “wasteland.” Fortunately, most of the hard work of hauling away all that dead growth can be the responsibility of a professional San Diego yard waste removal company. Is it time to dig up the old and plant the new?

Most San Diego residents like to keep their lawns well-manicured. Regular mowing of the lawn can yield around a single trash can full of cut grass. But what about those projects that are a bit more intensive? That garbage can isn’t going to be able to hold tree limbs or bushes. The last thing you want is a pile of yard waste sitting in a corner of your backyard. There is no telling what kinds of creatures might make that their new home. If you know you have a big backyard project coming up, then schedule a San Diego yard waste removal team to be standing by to pick up and haul away all the refuse.

Sure, you can try taking away your own yard waste but then you’ll be faced with two questions: where to dump it and what to haul it in? If you live in a rural area you might get lucky and find a spot to get rid of the yard waste by the side of the road but make sure you won’t be fined for illegal dumping. And do you really want to load up your family’s SUV with dirt, leaves and grass? Even if it is all bagged up, you’re still asking for trouble if one of those bags split open. Also, do you really want to spend your free time bagging, loading, hauling and dumping? Of course not!

Keep in mind that yard waste doesn’t always have to be of the organic variety. Many folks in San Diego like to entertain in their backyards. As a result, there are some amazing decks and patios spread that become the hub for many a great barbeque. If you’re thinking of redoing your deck or considering putting in a brand new patio, you’re going to have to tear up what’s there. A contractor might charge you an exorbitant fee for the removal of that type of yard waste.

There’s nothing wrong with shopping around for a local yard waste removal company to get the best deal on your hauling job. A contractor might be hiring masons to put in your patio but will have to hire another team for the removal of the garbage. Don’t take any chances with day laborers. You want a professional and experienced crew to come into your home. A quality San Diego yard waste removal company is the only way to go.

Junk King Northern San Diego is your best choice for any yard waste removal needs.  We’ll do an an efficient, affordable, and eco-friendly job.  Call us at 1-800-995-JUNK or schedule a free estimate today!

San Diego Junk Removal with Junk King

For as long as there have been homes there have been projects to do around the home. Sometimes husbands refer to these projects as “honey do” lists as in “honey, do this and honey, do that.” The spirit of “do it yourself” is alive and well in these types of projects. But the reality is there’s a limit to how far DIY can go, especially when the home project is going to leave behind a lot of waste and garbage. That’s when you need to bring in a San Diego junk removal company like Junk King North San Diego. The Junk King crews can expertly handle nearly any kind of junk piling up in your home or business. That’s going to make your “honey do” project a breeze.
Junk King is the leader in San Diego junk removal. That might not seem like a major accomplishment; after all, what can be so complicated with hauling junk away? You’d be surprised at the difference that an experience and qualified team of junk removal specialists can make. First consider the amount of muscle it takes to simply load up a truck with worn out furniture, chunks of broken concrete or busted kitchen appliances. One of the reasons that junk sits around your place could be that it’s just too heavy to move.
Then consider what to do with all of that junk. Can you honestly say you would know where to dump your trash? The quick answer is the nearest landfill but chances are that landfill is on the far outskirts of your San Diego neighborhood. Do you really want to be spending hours on the road to get rid of your trash?
And what about recycling? That’s a major component of San Diego junk removal. Luckily, Junk King San Diego prides themselves on being eco-friendly. This means they will know the best final destination for your waste. This could mean one recycling center for the furniture and another for the old washing machine and yet another for the broken television. Although the end result of reusing resources is the same, the methods are different for every type of resource. That’s why you need to have someone like Junk King San Diego who knows all the players in the green junk removal arena.
Junk King North San Diego also offers king size service. This means a hauling capacity that is 20% bigger then the competition. And yes, in the junk hauling business size matters. It makes way more sense to have Junk King make one hauling trip for all your junk as opposed to another service that might have to do the same job in several trips and charge you each time. That’s not a good way to get rid of your junk.
In addition Junk King San Diego’s crews aren’t just day laborers. These are trained, fully licensed, insured and bonded crews who know their job. The first step is to make the call for Junk King San Diego (1-800-995-JUNK) to come over and give you an estimate based on the amount of junk that fits into their truck. Once that estimate is agreed upon, you’ll set up your junk removal appointment and at long last say good-bye to all your junk! It’s just that simple with Junk King San Diego.

What is Professional Junk Hauling?

You only have to spend a few moments inside a typical San Diego home to know how much pride the owners take in creating warm and inviting surroundings. Although everyone has their own unique approach and style, the goal is always the same: produce a place you’d be happy to spend time in. Naturally, this can mean keeping up to date with design trends by adding new pieces of furniture. The big issue then becomes what to do with all the old stuff. The simple solution is to hire a professional team of locally based San Diego furniture haulers to “make out with the old and in with the new” – a stress free endeavor.

“Professional” is the key word when it comes to inviting any type of worker into your home. Whether you need a plumber, electrician, handyman or furniture hauler you want to make sure they are experienced and qualified. In some cases, unscrupulous contractors will pick up day laborers to fill the gaps on a remodel project. These could be painters or other types of workers that the contractor finds outside of the Home Depot. That’s not who you want to bring into your house. A professional junk hauling company should be licensed to do business in the state, bonded and certified.

What that means is that their workers are going to be professionals who are experienced with moving furniture. Even with the heaviest of objects, it’s still a delicate operation to maneuver a sofa or chest of drawers around the tight corners in your home. You don’t want reckless movers banging into your walls or door jams. But if an accident does occur, you’ll want to make sure that the junk haulers you’ve hired will take care of the issue.

You can tell a professional junk hauler from the amateurs by how they present themselves. If someone is advertising for work by taping a flier to the telephone pole then they really can’t be taken very seriously. However, a company with a professional web presence has proven that they are successful enough to invest in the proper marketing of their business.  This means they the junk hauling professionals will be dressed for work – not in a pair of ripped jeans and a white t-shirt. That kind of success can only be achieved by building a strong customer base and a solid reputation. You don’t get that with shoddy work.

If you have designated several pieces of furniture for a junk removal company to take away, you don’t have to stop there. Perhaps there are other items in your home that need to be taken away. These could be old files or records, torn luggage, unused camping equipment or anything else that is collecting dust in your attic or garage. Are you really using that beat up surf board? What about those rusty golf clubs? Instead of hanging onto that junk, let the professional junk hauling company you hire take it all away.

And don’t hesitate to ask where your old furniture might end up.  Nowadays any company who is in the junk hauling business in San Diego should be well versed on all the various recycling centers around town. They should have no problem dropping your old furniture off at any one of those facilities. While you get comfortable with your new furniture you’ll be assured that your old furniture is being put to good “reuse!”
