Doylestown PA Moving and Junk Hauling

A few residents in Doylestown might have recently experienced a delay in their mail delivery. That’s because a mail truck bound for the area got into a bit of a mishap. When a cargo strap broke on a mail truck at the intersection of Bristol Road, the contents shifted and busted out of the back gate. The result was several bins of undelivered mail scattered all over the road. Postal workers and police scrambled to gather up all the mail but it had to go back to the processing center in Philly to be resorted and then delivered to Doylestown. It took about 2 hours to clear up the mess. Needless to say, morning rush hour traffic was at a standstill.

This is clearly a cautionary tale about moving: If you overload your truck, you could have all of that spilling out onto the highway. If you’re planning a move, you want to make sure you’re only taking what you need for your new home and not all of your junk. You can’t leave it behind. Instead, hire Junk King Bucks County for a junk move before the real move.

No matter where you are living now, it’s a safe bet that you’ve probably accumulated a lot of junk over the years. Remember when you first moved into your space? All those empty rooms and closets? Even a garage that you could park a car in. What happened over the following years is what happens to everyone; your house got filled up with stuff. Most of what we have in our homes are practical items like furniture, TVs, kitchen appliances, bedroom sets and clothes. Yet every one of those items could have been replaced over the years. What happened to the old stuff? Because you couldn’t throw it away, it ended up in your basement, garage or attic. Out of sight and out of mind, right? Well, now that you’re moving you certainly don’t want to take all that useless stuff with you. That’s where Junk King comes into play.

As you start to pack up what you’re taking with you, set aside that stuff you want tossed out. Better yet, leave it where it is but just put a Post-It note on it saying “For Junk King.” Then schedule a removal appointment with Junk King Bucks and let them handle the rest. They’ll take away all that stuff and make sure it is properly disposed of. Usually this will mean the vast bulk of what you’re throwing out will either be recycled or refurbished by a local charity. But that’s nothing you have to worry about. The Junk King Bucks county crew will figure out what the best final destination for your junk will be. Give Junk King a call today for your pre-move junk removal.

Bucks County Post Storm Cleanup

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.
