The Future Of Junk Hauling In Palm Beach

The goals of most advances in technology have been to make our lives easier to manage. Smartphones exist so that we can stay in constant contact with friends, family and business associates. It also helps when those phones can provide information about traffic, weather and take the occasional snapshot. The next generation of homes will also be a lot smarter. You’ll be able to control your lights, water, heat, AC, music, TV and locks on the door all from a single app. In fact, you can even watch what is going on around your home while you’re miles away. That is a future we can all look forward too.

Of course, there are some household chores that won’t change much. You still have to take out the trash and you still have to occasionally haul away bulky items. If not, you would become overrun with rubbish. Anything that fits into a trashcan is easy to get rid of. For everything else, there is Junk King.

Junk King is the professional junk hauling service who has helped Palm Beach residents cart off tons of unwanted items. You probably have a lot of little things around you home you can toss out. There might even be a cabinet or two in your kitchen full of these kinds of objects. The bigger items like furniture, appliances and e-waste are more of challenge to get rid of if you were doing the job on your own. With Junk King on your side, you’ll be able to have all of those things picked up in a single appointment. By “picked up” we literally mean “picked up.” You won’t have to lift a finger because the Junk King crew will be doing all the work for you.

You’ll save time with Junk King as well. We only ask for a two-hour window to set up your junk hauling appointment. Once the team shows up, they spring into action and will have your junk loaded in a matter of minutes. The only time it takes longer is if there is something unique that has to be dismantled first. That won’t be a problem and you won’t be charged any extra. You’ll still be paying a flat fee based on the volume of your stuff on the back of the Junk King truck. Professional junk hauling is easy when you’ve got Junk King on your side.

 

The Florida Basement

Have you ever heard of a garage in Florida being referred to as the “Florida basement?” I overheard someone say that recently and had to laugh. Unfortunately most of us Floridians do not have traditional basements due to the high water table. Many of us also do not have attic spaces. We thus, lack storage space! Our garages tend to fill up quickly.

At Junk King one of our popular job is a garage cleanout. We do them frequently! Sometimes the stuff that accumulates can be overwhelming. Our customers are always relieved once we visit. We work quickly and efficiently. You don’t have to labor in the sun or deal with costly/unsightly dumpsters. We come, dressed in uniform, ready to take on the challenge.

And, boy, what a difference a call to Junk King makes!

Here’s a recent example:

Buying Your Dream Home…

Are you in the market for a new home?  It might feel like an overwhelming process.  I read a great article in the Florida Times-Union today about home ownership.  One of the points that stood out was this:

One of the problems of the foreclosure crisis is that many homes are in a state of disrepair. Potential homeowners often do not consider these homes because of the extensive repairs and renovations that are required. But there are loan programs that can let a homeowner add these costs to the initial loan so that you can truly make the house your own.

In other words, it seems that people often overlook diamonds in the rough.  But, they shouldn’t!  Their perfect home might require some renovation or a little extra elbow grease  however there are loan programs that might help.  And, there are professionals they can call!

Remember the classic film “The Money Pit”? They could have used Junk King!

We at Junk King have helped many new homeowers in their renovation process.  Sometimes we come in at the beginning and clean out a home that has been foreclosed.  It’s as simple as calling us and arranging a time.  We move all the items and then haul them away!  Other times, we meet the homeowners after they’ve moved in and have started a project.  Recently we had a homeower who wanted to replace all of his downstairs flooring.  We showed up and hauled away some old built-in wall units and tile flooring within a day!  We made the prep work easy!  Now the homeowners can finish the project and are one step closer to their dream home!

What To Avoid In A Palm Beach Junk Removal Company

Just because there are some amazing stretches of pristine beaches in Palm Beach doesn’t mean there isn’t any trash there. There are plenty of careless visitors who will think nothing of leaving behind their garbage after a day on the beach. Thankfully, we have many dedicated volunteers who are happy to give up several hours on a Saturday for beach cleanup. The effort of these locals is helping keep the beaches clean. When it comes to your personal home cleanup, you don’t have to go it alone either. You can hire a professional junk removal company like Junk King to help get haul away the rubbish. Although Junk King should be your top pick, there is nothing wrong with shopping around… just be careful.

First, you want a company that is fully licensed, bonded and insured. This means they are doing business the right way and will respect your property. Junk King has you covered on all those items. You then want to look for a junk removal company that has fair pricing policies. If a company says they charge by the pound, you should avoid them all together. How can they weigh your junk accurately? Plus, cleaning up after a roofing project or landscape makeover could cost a fortune. With Junk King, you’ll be charged a flat rate based on volume not weight. Once you’re provided with this estimate, it will be locked in. There won’t be any extra charges or surprise fees.

Your junk removal company should care about the local environment. Junk King has been dedicated to a green way of doing things since their founding back in 2005. They will do all they can to keep your junk out of the nearby landfills. Instead, they’ll drop it off at recycling center or donate it to a  charity. Other companies might claim they do this and then charge you for the “privilege.” That’s not going to happen with Junk King.

Finally, you want a company that won’t let you do any work. If someone says they’ll pick up your junk if it is on the street, then it kind of defeats the purpose of hiring the company. Junk King goes to where your junk is situated. When you consider what Junk King has to offer, you can see why they should be your choice for junk removal in Palm Beach.
