Staying at home has provide many homeowners with the opportunity to “catch up” on all those projects they’ve been putting off. Even with remote work and home schooling, there is still time to tackle minor repairs and get the home organized. To accomplish the organizing, a lot of sorting takes place. The best approach is to removed everything from a cabinet or closet and go through it one item at a time. That way you can make the decision what goes back into the cabinet or closet and what can be tossed out. Of course, this means you could be creating piles of bulk rubbish that now need to be cleared out. It doesn’t make sense to decide you don’t want something and then keep it! That is where Junk King Philadelphia can be a big help. We are standing by to provide a safe, touchless pickup for all your bulk items.
The Touchless Way
When Junk King refers to new pickup protocols as “touchless” it means maintaining that six-foot safe social distance barrier between the crews and customers. The best way to achieve that is to have your bulk items brought out of the house. They can be placed in the driveway, porch or curb. That allows the Junk King team to make the pickup and avoid coming into your home. Along with the social distancing, the Junk King squad will be wearing gloves and masks. We also disinfect our trucks after every pickup and drop off. Junk King is dedicated to keeping our crews and customers safe and a little effort goes a long way towards accomplishing that goal.
Junk King also has made virtual pricing part of our new policies. All you have to do is snap a picture of all the items you want us to pick up and text that to us. We can then provide you with an estimate based on how those items will fit onto the truck. One fee covers everything from start to finish.
When you need help with bulk rubbish removal, you can always count on Junk King Philadelphia to get the job done.

When it comes to mowing the lawn, do you ride or push? The bigger the lawn, the more likely that you have a rider mower. Although mowing the lawn is considered a “chore” you have to admit that operating a riding mower is kind of fun. If you’ve been at this for a few years, then you’ve got the routine down. You know what areas of your lawn require the “sharp curves” and which parts let you open up the mower for smooth cutting. You also know when that mower is working as it should.

All the Lifting and Loading
