Orange County Furniture Disposal – Order Online, In Person Removal

By now we’ve all bought at least one thing from Amazon. It’s just too easy especially with their “one click purchase” option. Also, the big discounts are huge plus. What many people new to the Amazon shopping experience might not realize is that when they first open their online business all they sold was books. Yes, it was a lot of books but it was just that: books. The natural expansion was to begin selling CDs, DVDs and computer games.

Once it was accepted that people were flocking to Amazon then they made the smart choice to keep on expanding. Today, Amazon sells practically anything and everything. They have even opened their web portal to allow outside merchants to sell their goods through Amazon. Now online shoppers can buy computers, televisions, T-shirts, shoes and yes, books all through Amazon. What about furniture? Amazon does have a small selection of pieces available but that shouldn’t discourage you if you want to do your furniture shopping online. You’ll have plenty of options.

There was a time when the only way to shop for furniture was to head out to the closest showroom to see what they had to offer. While there were plenty of choices, it was still a limiting selection. Now, you can do a Google search for any type of furniture and find literally hundreds of websites selling exactly what you’re looking for. If you’re lucky, you can find a showroom in your neighborhood which offers that very same piece of furniture but that doesn’t mean you have to buy that piece from there. Go check it out, sit in it and if you still like it then rush back to your computer, point, click and buy!

What about delivery costs? With a large piece of furniture you’re going to be paying for delivered whether you buy it from a business two blocks away or two states away. To entice customers, many online furniture retailers offer special discounts on shipping. Depending on the time of year, you might even find an online retailer to offer free shipping.

Online furniture retailers have also gotten extremely savvy in terms of choices. With a sofa or loveseat you would be able to custom build your piece in terms of color options just as you would in a traditional showroom. The difference is that you’ll be able to see what the entire sofa would look like in that color as opposed to just looking at a small swatch of fabric and guessing.

After you place your order and wait for the delivery, you can make arrangements with the professional junk haulers at Junk King Orange County to take away your old furniture. This is the best choice because the delivery men aren’t going to be able to take anything with them. The pro hauling team at Junk King will be able to take away anything else you want to get rid of in the same trip. Maybe you’ve got junk in your garage or closets that can finally be tossed out. Load it all up and make way for your new furnishings!

Orange County Junk Recycling

Recycling is definitely a feel-good kind of activity. Once you have embraced the concept then anything you can divert from a landfill is going to be a good thing. Sure, one soda can might not make all that much of a difference but if everybody in Orange County recycles every soda can then you’re talking tons of trash and that’s just on your average weekend! Have you ever seen a ton of trash? A literal ton of trash? It’s huge. If that amount of trash can be re purposed and reused on a regular business then it’s going to be good for our beaches, water supply, farms and any other part of nature. This is why so many companies and local governments want to be in the eco-friendly business: It’s what the people want.

Responding to the desire of OC residents who want to recycle, the City of Dana Point teamed up with the waste-disposal company CR&R to sponsor a cleanup and recycling day at the Dana Hills High School. For this event, the sponsors encourage neighborhood residents to drop off all their bulky items such as furniture, TVs, computers, fax machines, copiers and yard waste that couldn’t be thrown out in the weekly recycle bin pick-up. Although this was a noble effort it was only held between 7:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on a single Saturday. That’s not very practically for a lot of folks when you consider how jammed packed their weekends are. What’s the alternative? Hire eco-friendly junk haulers like Junk King Orange County, who know all about recycling.

Along with that long list of bulky items you could also add kitchen appliances, automobile parts, old lawnmowers, patio furniture, hot tubs, lumber, drywall or anything else that is taking up space in your home and needs to be gotten rid of. Among the many benefits of hiring these eco-friendly haulers is that they’ll already know where to take your junk whether that’s made up of wood, metal, foam, plastic or cardboard. Yes, it might mean several stops for them but that won’t be your problem!

What also won’t be your problem is how to get that junk out of your house. You can’t move a sofa by yourself and that’s why Junk King OC will be made up of at least two-man crews who have plenty of experience lifting heavy objects. Then there is the truck issue to think about. With these drop-off days, you have to use your own car to pile up the recyclables. Would they even fit? Probably not but they’ll certainly be plenty of room on the back of the pros’ truck.

When Junk King OC has cleaned your house of those big junk pieces and had them recycled, you can refocus your “green efforts”  on the recycling that you can handle. This will mean your carbon footprint has gone from a “plus-size” to a “mini-size.”
