Ask any parent what the happiest day of their life and they’ll probably relate the day their kid was born. Then they grow up to be a teenager and all bets are off! According to the law, until a child reaches the age of adulthood, which is 18, the parents are essentially responsible for their actions. This also means picking up the bill when the teen gets into trouble such as tagging. Recently, a local Orange County mom was slapped with an $18,000 dollar bill to clean up her son’s recent bout of graffiti “art.”
As is the case with most taggers, they are happy to sign their work so it wasn’t hard tracking down the culprit and now mom is on the hook. While that is a very expensive bill to pay off it’s really just a fraction of the total cleanup costs in Lake Forest alone. Last year it was $74K which was a drop from the $141K spent the year before. Clearly, having parents pay the bill is having a positive impact.
When it comes to your own type of cleanup project, thankfully it doesn’t have to be that expensive. Not even close especially when you hire a professional company like Junk King Orange County to haul away all your bulky items. Junk King is relatively new to Orange County but not new to the junk removal business. That’s because they are part of a national franchise of businesses dedicated to helping folks and businesses clear out the clutter in their life. This translates into high marks for customer service. A Junk King crew is fast and efficient. How can they help you? There are many ways!
First of all, the Junk King OC crew will be doing all the heavy lifting. You won’t have to climb up stairs or haul anything out to the curb. They take care of all of that. You also won’t have to rent a truck to cart off that stuff. A Junk King crew always comes with a huge empty truck perfect for loading all kinds of items like furniture, mattresses, appliances and any other oversized item. Finally, Junk King is also a green company. That means they’ll make sure your junk it given a eco-friendly final resting place whether that’s at a recycling center, charity or certified dump.
As for affordable, Junk King Orange County will only charge you by the amount of space your junk will take up on their truck. There are no bloated labor costs or dumping fees. One price that you agree to before the job is done. Add it all up and Junk King is the best way to get rid of your unwanted items.
One of the mainstays of the television crime drama is the back alley dumpster. How many times have you seen your favorite cop show where the detectives need to climb into a dumpster looking for clues? It’s almost as if every dumpster is some kind of magnet pulling in guns, knives, phones and purses. In extreme cases the bodies of victims have ended up in a dumpster. That’s because the very nature of a dumpster is one of “drive-by availability.” In other words, if you’ve got something in your car you want to get rid of and you see a dumpster you’re going to toss that object. Now imagine if you will that a dumpster is sitting in your driveway. Do you want that to be turned into a crime scene?
Obviously, that is a worst case scenario but it points out the biggest issue with renting a dumpster: you just don’t know what you’re going to attract. It might not be so bad if the dumpster could be dropped off in the morning and picked up in the afternoon. The problem is that most dumpster rental companies require you to keep that dumpster at least for 24 hours. Others require a minimum 3 day rental. Even if it only takes you a few hours to fill up that dumpster you’re still going to be stuck with all the potential problems.
Then there is the issue of placement to contend with. Although your front yard is your property the street in front of your house is not. If you place a dumpster there you might need a special permit especially if it is going to be blocking access to parking or become situated on a street cleaning day. Permits aren’t free, either. That will be an additional charge that could be tacked onto the rental fees.
The better alternative to renting a dumpster would be to hire Junk King Orange County. Junk King is part of a national franchise of junk removal specialists. When you hire Junk King OC you also hire the Junk King crew. These are the professional haulers who will carry out whatever items you want taken from your home or yards. That’s the other big difference with Junk King: You won’t have to do any of the heavy lifting. Instead, the Junk King crew will climb down the basement stairs or up into the attic. They’ll go into the garage or in the backyard. All you have to do is tell them what you want taken away and they’ll handle the rest. Junk King OC will also be in and out without any fuss. You schedule the appointment, they show up with their truck and the job is done. It doesn’t get any easier than that.
There is a surprisingly long list of reasons why you should consider getting rid of your old refrigerator. Top of that list would be the savings. When you switch over to a new, energy efficient model you could end up saving over $180 dollars each year on your energy bill. In the grand scheme of your household budget, that might seem like a drop in the bucket but think about how far that kind of cash can be spread around paying bills or going out for an anniversary night on the town.
Getting rid of that old fridge could be a challenge. It’s actually illegal to dump a fridge or freezer at any California landfill. That means if you happen to rent a truck, load it up and drive it out to the dump you would be turned right back around. The big reasons are all the CFCs. That would be the Chlorofluorocarbon refrigerants, mercury and polyurethane foam insulation with CFC 11. When not properly disposed of those ingredients are actually deemed hazardous materials. Add to that list glass, oil, metals and plastics and you can see why your fridge is a huge pile of recyclable material waiting to be properly handled. The best handlers for that kind of job? That would be Junk King OC.
Junk King just set up shop in the Orange County area and already they’re taking the place by storm. That’s because they’ve dedicated themselves to the proper way of junk removal. Hiring some guy with a beat-up pickup driving around your neighborhood is not the way to go. You have no clue where that fellow is going to dump you junk. For all you know, he’s driving around the corner and tossing it out in the closest ally. With a job as important and delicate as refrigerator disposal you need someone you can count on and that’s going to be Junk King.
The Junk King crews are all fully trained and licensed. That counts especially when you’re asking someone to pick up a heavy, bulky object. Keep in mind that you don’t have to just hire Junk King OC to take away a single item. You can make the most of their appointment by loading up their big truck with as much stuff as you want to get rid of. What could fit alongside your old fridge? That lump mattress? The ratty sofa? The kayak nobody uses? The busted ping pong table? Imagine what you can do with all that open space. Yes, your new fridge will go in the hole left behind by the old model but all that extra space? They sky is the limit. Call Junk King Orange County today and let them handle all your big disposal needs.
