Make Back-To-School Rubbish Clearing Time

Back-to-school is a time for fresh starts. There are always new clubs and teams for the kids to join and new teachers to meet. They will also be new challenges with regard to class study.

Fast Removal

One of the most common comments made about Junk King’s services is how fast the crews operate. Your experience with movers might have not been all that great.

“Before And After” Video Shows Junk King In Action

Have you ever heard the expression, “nature abhors a vacuum?” essentially that means whenever there is an empty space it usually gets filled up. Just sit back and watch the next rainstorm for proof of this! That expression also seems to apply to nearly every household in Orange County. If there is an empty space for storage, then something will go into that space. Too often, those things that are placed in storage turn out not to be needed at all. That’s as much true for old furniture as it is for wooden pallets. Both of those items were quickly removed by the Junk King Orange County team in this before and after video. It is a perfect example to see how Junk King could benefit your property.

Pile Up

As you can see from the video things tend to pile up garage. In a way, this demonstrates a responsible homeowner. It is much better to put extra pieces of furniture in the garage than it is to put it out on the curb in the hopes that someone will pick it up. That never works like it should! As this homeowner discovered, there is a tipping point with regard to how much can be kept in storage. It means taking an assessment of all the things that you are keeping tucked away in the garage spare room. Do you need all of those things? Are they ever can be put to use again in your family? Do they have any value if they were to be sold? If the answer to all of those questions is a resounding “no,” then it is clear what you need to do: call in Junk King.

Beyond the Inside

Junk King also makes a difference beyond the inside of a property. A corner of the fence or the side of the garage is also a popular storage area for left over construction materials and random pieces of lumber. None of those things will probably be used again especially if they spent any time outdoors. They will be space for that on the back of the Junk King truck. All you have to do is tell the crew that is what you want removed and it will be as good as gone.

Once you see Junk King Orange County in action you’ll want to hire them for your own junk removal session.

Considerations For First-Time Homebuyers

When you’ve made the decisions to become a homeowner, you’ll be embarking on a journey that can be challenging and rewarding.

What Home Suits Your Needs?

Set aside architectural styles for this question and instead focus on function. There are traditional single-family homes, townhouses, condos, co-ops or a multi-family building with two to four units. Each one of those types of homes has their own list of pros and cons. Within those categories you also have properties that are ready to move in or might need a little (or a lot) of fixing up. How much effort you want to put into maintaining your home might also be a factor.

What is on Your Must-Have List?

All first-time homebuyers have a must-have list. They usually begin with the location and move onto size. Within that “size” issue are things like the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, if it is an open floor plan and type of backyard space. The most important thing about a must-have list is to be flexible. Could there be renovations that can turn a home into a dream house? Could living 20 minutes outside of your ideal neighborhood be a deal breaker?

How Much Mortgage Do You Qualify For?

It makes no sense to shop for a home without know how much you can afford to spend. Yes, those mortgage calculators that are on every lending site can provide you with a glimpse of what your monthly fees will be but until you apply and are approved anything can change. That is why you’ll be in a stronger position if you go get pre-approved first.

What Are You Taking With You?

There is a lot that you’ll probably bring with you and a lot you’ll want to replace for your new home. As for the rest, that would all be the stuff to turn over to Junk King Orange County. These are the junk removal experts who can make all you unwanted furniture, appliance and electronics disappear. First-time homebuyers shouldn’t move into their new place with a lot of old rubbish.
