When the dust settles and the water recedes after a big storm like Hurricane Sandy, you always get the opportunity to see what great neighbors you have. It’s not different here in Bucks County where two local residents set up a Facebook group for volunteers to help with the clean-up efforts. Just for one weekend, they got over 150 people to sign up for the clean-up details. The group met around 7 a.m. on Saturday morning and were dispatched to do things like clear downed trees, branches and other debris. They won’t be dealing with downed power lines just “the grunt work.” Volunteers are asked to bring trash bags, shovels, saws, chain saws, and wheel barrows. SUVs and pickups were also needed to get the crews and equipment to the sites. It was like moving a small army but they got the job done and didn’t ask for anything in return. This is what being a good neighbor is all about.
As great as it is to have volunteers working on the after storm cleanup, they are limited with what they can do and how many hours they can devote to the task. It might be more prudent for some to hire a professional junk hauling company like Junk King Bucks County if you find yourself overwhelmed with debris clean-up. Every Junk King crew that is dispatched to a job site will have at least two members working in tandem for the clean-up and removal. Depending on the job, you could get a few more Junk King team members. What’s great is you won’t be charged extra for labor costs. That’s because the price you pay will be based on how much space your junk takes up in their truck. That’s the other benefit of hiring Junk King; the big truck. You will never have to worry about running out of space or getting the truck dirty. Once again, you won’t be paying for truck rental, gas, traveling time or dumpsite fees.
Naturally, you don’t have to wait for a storm to clear your house of debris or junk. In fact, if you were spared by Sandy’s wrath it might be a good time to access the potential for future storm damage. Do you have some items down in your basement or garage that could become a problem if flooding occurs? Would it be better to clear out all that old furniture or boxes of stuff you’re never going to use again? What about some of the weak tree branches looming over your yard or home. It might be a smart move to trim those back. Junk King Bucks County can help with all of that removal. When you’re ready, give Junk King a call and find out how they can help you with all your cleanup needs.
