4 Ways Junk King Plano Can Help Businesses

Businesses create a lot of junk. It’s an unfortunate side effect of owning a business. Even a company that is mostly service-oriented may still generate a good amount of trash every day. Trash that is obviously trash goes out in your weekly garbage, but there are some types of junk that are more insidious. You may not even realize how much of this type of trash you’re storing until you go looking for it. 

Dealing with this junk can be a little overwhelming because there’s typically a lot of it. It may be too much to put in your weekly dumpster. When that happens, it’s time to call Junk King Plano. Our crew helps many businesses in a variety of different industries across the Plano area. If you’ve got junk you want to get rid of but aren’t sure what the right approach is, give us a call. Here are a few of the ways we can help you declutter your office, retail space, or other area.

You Can Regain Space

One of the biggest reasons to call us is to gain more usable space in your stockroom, storage closet, or other space. You may find that you simply don’t have any room to store the things you know you need. Why? Because you’re storing a lot of old things you simply don’t have any use for. Going through this junk and getting rid of it will give you the room you need to effectively store items. 

Even if you have some room in your storage area, how disorganized is the space? You may have so much stuff crammed in there that you can’t easily find the things you need when you need them. This is another good reason to organize the space and have Junk King come haul away anything you don’t need. 

What junk might you have stored in here? It depends on what your business does, but there are a few common items that tend to collect. If you’re a retailer, you may have old marketing materials, displays, shelving, and even old products stashed away. If anything is broken or outdated, it’s not useful to you any longer. Old products that are past their expiration dates or have simply never sold shouldn’t be kept. At some point, the cost of keeping these products far outweighs any profits you could make from them, and that’s assuming you could sell them at some point.

For companies that mainly offer services, you may have old marketing materials, furniture, and other equipment. Offices may have a stash of old chairs, desks, filing cabinets, and other things that won’t ever be needed again. Even if you did need them, you’re more likely to buy something new because the things you’ve been storing haven’t aged well. 

We Haul Away All of this Junk

Once you’ve determined that your storage room or space is overflowing with junk, what do you do with it? Your first thought may be to add it to your dumpster, but even if you have a good-sized dumpster, can it handle this extra junk on top of your standard amount of trash? Probably not. You could add a few items to it every week, but that may not clean out your space very quickly. You also have to make certain someone remembers to haul some of that trash out before the dumpster is emptied.

Your other option is to load up all that trash and take it to the city dump yourself. However, this requires a few things. First, you have to have a truck that can accommodate at least some of the junk. You may have to make multiple trips if you have a lot of trash, but that also brings up another issue: you have to dedicate employee time and effort to dealing with trash. This means you may have employees who are doing nothing but cleaning out this junk for a day or two, maybe longer if it’s accumulated for years. That’s not the best use of your team. 

Junk King will do all the work for you, so your team can continue to do what only they can. You don’t even need to move the junk anywhere. We will come in and haul it out to the truck. If you know you want to get rid of everything in the space, it’s easy. If you need to sort through it, you may need to move things around before we arrive. Even if you do that, it’s still much less work than hauling it out to your own truck, driving to the landfill, paying the dumping fees, and then coming back for another load.

Junk King is Here to Help with Remodels, too

Need to remodel your retail space or office? Doing so can be a large task, but it can also help transform your business and help you take it to the next level. Whether you’re just installing new flooring or are planning to take down walls and completely reconfigure the space, a remodel is going to generate some garbage. You’re going to need to get rid of all this trash so you can start installing your new flooring, putting up new walls, and giving the space a new paint job. 

Junk King does take construction debris. We will come in and clear out all of the trash following demolition of the space so you have the blank canvass you need. We typically come in right after demo has been completed, but you may also need us to come back when the project is closer to completion if you have a lot of packaging and material remnants left. You may have to do some additional demolition at some point, too, if you find something unexpected such as old wiring or bad plumbing. 

Call Us When You’re Moving

Have you outgrown your current space? Maybe you’ve secured a lease on a storefront in a much better location or have decided to move into a brand-new office building. No matter where you’re going, moving your business is a lot of work. You have to make certain all of your equipment is carefully packed and moved along with your office furniture, products, and everything else. If you have paper documents or files that must be secured at all times, you have the additional challenge of correctly transporting those. In some cases, such as when a doctor’s office moves, you have to make sure those files are transported according to HIPAA regulations or risk a fine.

What about the junk you decide you don’t want to move? Simple—don’t move it! Instead, give Junk King Plano a call. We will take whatever trash you have left in your current space. There’s no point in moving it to your new building if you don’t need it, so let us get rid of it for you.

What Will Junk King Haul Away?

Junk King can take almost anything, including old furniture, shelving, displays, marketing materials, products, construction debris, yard debris, and more. The one thing we cannot handle is hazardous materials due to the danger they represent to our crew. If you have anything hazardous to dispose of, we may be able to give you some information on what to do or who to contact, but we cannot take the waste ourselves.

How Does it Work?

When you need us to help you clean out junk you’ve accumulated at your business, all you have to do is give us a call and let us know what you have. Because most jobs we do for businesses are fairly large, we will typically need to do an in-person quote because we’ll need to see what we’re dealing with. If you just have a few basic items like a couple of old shelving racks or a few old desks to get rid of, we may be able to give you a quote over the phone or via text. If it’s a whole room of stuff, though, we’ll need to see it first. 

Once we’ve given you a quote, it’s up to you if you want to continue. All of our quotes are free, and there is never any obligation to follow through with them. These quotes are fully transparent and include all fees and other costs, so do keep that in mind when comparing them to others. Always ask what a quote includes and, more importantly, what it doesn’t include before signing any contracts.

If you accept our quote, we will go to work. We do all of the heavy lifting, so you don’t have to worry about that. We also sort out items we know we can donate or recycle. You may have old office furniture you don’t need but is still in usable condition. We will pass that along to one of our local charitable partners. For things that can be recycled, we will put it aside and send it to a local recycling center.

Junk King Can Help You Clean Out Your Storage Unit

Do you pay every month for a storage unit? If so, do you know exactly what’s in that unit? There are a lot of people who pay for storage units and really don’t know what’s in them anymore. They think they’re storing items that they will eventually use again, but the truth is that most people hardly ever look in their units. They just pay it every month without really thinking about it. 

What could you do with that money if you didn’t have a storage unit? Even if you’re paying less than one hundred dollars a month, you could still put that money to use elsewhere, especially if you aren’t really certain what’s in your storage unit. Junk King Plano can help you save this money and get rid of any junk you have in the unit that you no longer need. If you’re paying for a storage unit every month but aren’t sure why, here are a few tips for dealing with what’s in it.

Junk King Larger Truck

First, Take Inventory of the Unit

The first step to dealing with your storage unit is to know what’s inside of it. If the unit is stacked floor to ceiling, wall to wall, front to back, you may have to take everything out of it first. Most storage facilities have enough space between the rows of units that you can at least drag some of the things outside. You may need some help with this task, of course, so be sure to bring at least one other person with you. Having a ladder may also be helpful if things are stacked on top of each other. Gloves and masks are also good to have, especially if you have asthma or other breathing conditions. There’s likely to be a lot of dust.

Write down everything you have in the unit. It might also be a good idea to take photos of all the items, especially if you plan on giving away or selling some or all of them. This way, you’ll be able to tell people what you have and show them pictures. You’ll definitely need good photos if you plan on selling things online. Make certain to write down the condition of each item, too. You want to know what’s broken or no longer usable.

You may have some boxes of stuff that you simply don’t have the time to sort through right then and there, especially if your unit is outdoors and it’s dark or cold. You may need to take these boxes home to sort through. This can mean taking a few boxes at a time, going through them, then taking them back and swapping them out for more boxes.

Once you know what’s in the unit, you’ll likely have to put it all back. This can be a little tricky if the unit was overflowing with stuff and you don’t remember exactly how it was all put in there. You may find that you have to take a few things home with you that day, so be ready for that. You may have found some stuff you want to take with you regardless of whether or not it will fit. Anything you consider priceless or that you don’t want to see damaged may need to go home with you.

Decide What to Do with Each Item

Now that you have a list of what’s in your storage unit, it’s time to determine what you want to do with all of the stuff. You’ll want to start separating the items on this list into several categories.

Trash and Junk

If you’ve marked something as broken or otherwise damaged, it goes on this list. This is the junk that you’ll be calling Junk King to haul away. 

Things You Want

The next category will include everything you want to bring to your home. This may not be a lot if you don’t have much room, of course. Don’t bring items that are broken unless you are dedicated to having them repaired. You don’t want to move junk from a storage unit to your home. It will likely simply sit there and take up space.

Things Family Members Might Want

Once you know what you want, it’s time to see if there’s anything others might want. If the items in your storage unit are things from your parent’s house or have other value to your family, you may want to get your siblings and other relatives involved. Let them know what family items you have and see if anyone wants them. As the person paying for the storage unit, it’s likely going to fall to you to mediate any disagreements if multiple people want the same thing. You’ll need to figure out some way of fairly deciding who gets what in this case.

Items in Good Condition

This category is for things that your family isn’t going to want but that could be used by someone. You might offer these things to friends, put them in a garage sale or on an online marketplace, or donate them. This might be your longest list, and it may grow if your family decides there are things that no one wants.

Donate or Sell?

Once you’ve given away everything that family or friends want, you need to decide what to do with what’s left. Donating it is often the easiest option because you can load it all up and donate it at once, assuming the organization you’re donating to accepts all of the items you have. Some won’t take certain items, so make sure you understand what they will accept. 

Selling some of these possessions can be a nice way of recouping at least a little bit of the money you’ve spent on the storage unit over the months or years, but it does take more work. If you’re having a garage sale, you’ll need to make certain you have the right permit to do so. You then have to set everything up, do a little advertising, and then deal with your neighbors and others who want to haggle over prices. That said, it’s not a bad option.

Another option is to take furniture and other accepted items to a consignment shop. These stores handle everything that goes into selling the items, but they do take a percentage of the sale price. You’re not limited to a day or two like you are with a yard sale, though, so there’s the chance more people will see your items, which means it’s more likely someone will buy them.

Selling online opens you up to an even larger pool of potential buyers, but it is a good amount of work. You have to write up a description, take multiple photos, and then handle shipping the items to whoever buys them. You also have to store everything until it sells, which can mean paying for the storage unit for several more months. 

Some storage unit managers may let you have a sale at your storage unit. Others may have a facility-wide garage sale every few months. The advantage here is that you don’t have to move the items to your home or consignment shop, plus the complex will usually do the marketing for you.

What Can Junk King Plano Do for You?

Junk King Plano will come to the storage complex and load up anything you want to get rid of. This makes it very easy and convenient if you don’t have a truck or the manpower to load up junk and take it to the landfill yourself. If you’ve moved everything to your home to sort, we can come pick up the junk there, too. You can even add in any other junk you have in your home. After all, you might as well get rid of it all at once.

In addition to taking junk to the landfill, Junk King also donates usable items. We pick everything up, then go through it and set aside anything that we think one of our partner organizations can make use of. These organizations then see to it that the items we donate to them get to those in need or to shelters and other outreach organizations. We also sort out recyclables and pass them off to the correct recycling center. We can typically donate or recycle well over half of every truckload of junk we pick up.

Is Your Storage Unit Stealing Money Every Month?

Sometimes, renting a storage unit is actually a good idea. It can give you a place to sort through items or serve as a temporary home for some of your furniture until you find a larger house. However, when that storage unit goes from a short-term rental to something you’ve paid for more than a year, it’s time to start wondering if it’s worth the expense. If you haven’t needed or even missed the items stored there, the answer is likely no. 

When you’re ready to sort out the junk from the treasures in your storage unit, Junk King Plano is here to help. To learn more or request a free, no-obligation quote, call us at 1-888-888-JUNK or send a text to 1-737-888-5865.


Tips for Dealing with Your Parents’ Home After they Pass


The loss of your parents is like no other. It’s made even harder by the fact that you’re immediately asked to make some major decisions about funeral arrangements, debts, and much more. Even if you’ve gone through the loss of one parent, losing another is different. Now you not only have to see to it that their final wishes are carried out, you also have to distribute their property and make arrangements for their home.


Dealing with your parents’ house is emotional. It may be the house you grew up in. Even if it’s not, it’s likely a house you’ve spent at least a few holidays at. Your parents may live across the country, but their home is still likely filled with furniture, photos, and other things you know and have an attachment to. 


Now, unless you or one of your siblings is moving into the home, you have to pack it all up and distribute everything. It can seem overwhelming, and it’s almost always going to involve some moments of high emotion. If you now have to deal with your parents’ house, here are a few tips to make the process a little easier as well as what Junk King Plano can do for you.


Junk King Larger Truck

Take Your Time if You Can


Don’t try to force yourself to go through your parents’ things right away. Take a few days or, if possible, even a few weeks after the funeral. If your parents were paying on a mortgage or were renting an apartment, you may have a more pressing financial situation you have to deal with. That can add pressure to get things handled right away. However, you can still take a couple of days to process. If they owned the home, you can wait for as long as you like, though you may not want to let the house sit for months. 


With an apartment or other rental property, you can likely work out something with the landlord. Often, you have to pay the last month’s rent when you move in, so your parents may have already paid for an extra month. If that’s not enough time, the landlord may allow you to pay for an additional month in order to get everything in order.


With a mortgage, it’s a little different. Unlike other debt, the estate isn’t responsible for paying off the mortgage. That’s because many estates simply don’t have the financial assets to do so. You’re not required to take on the mortgage, either, unless you co-signed on it. If one of the heirs wants to purchase the home, there are specific laws that will help them transfer the mortgage. However, if you plan on selling the property, you can work out the proper steps with the mortgage company to continue paying monthly until the house sells.

Get Help


Looking at your parents home and everything in it can be overwhelming. That’s why it helps if you have at least one other person with you. Whether it’s your spouse, your grown children, your siblings, or a close friend, having someone help you work through the house can be invaluable. There are a few reasons why having someone with you during this project is helpful.


First, you’re not alone with your parents’ possessions. You may already feel alone now that you’ve lost one or both of your parents. Handling their estate without support will only make this loneliness worse. Second, being with someone else who is grieving your parents can help. You can share stories of the different things in the home and reflect on your favorite memories.


Third, they can help keep the process moving. You may get overwhelmed from time to time by important family heirlooms and other things, but your sibling or spouse may not feel the same attachment. Together, you can help each other continue to sort through things, even if one of you needs to take a break.


Don’t be afraid to lean on others during this time, too. You don’t have to do it all. For example, if you’re going to put the house on the market, reach out to professional cleaners, painters, and other experts. When you’re ready to get rid of stuff you don’t need, Junk King Plano can help. Sometimes having someone take over these projects will help you slowly start to let go of the house if you’re having trouble doing so.


Try to Avoid Storage Units


One thing many people do to avoid dealing with their parents’ possessions is to pack them all up and put them in a storage unit. The plan is to go through all of the stuff later. While you may have the best of intentions when you move things into storage, you may find that you never actually follow up. Six months go by, then a year, and you’re still paying a monthly fee for the storage unit. 


You may also think about simply moving all of your parents’ furniture and other things into your basement, garage, or attic. This does give you more time to sort through it without adding any extra monthly bills, but you do run the risk of falling into the same trap. You may end up storing a lot of old furniture you have no intention of ever using. Keeping things you have an attachment to isn’t wrong, but you do have to make certain you do have space to do so.

What Do You Do with Everything?


That leads to the big question: what do you do with all of the furniture, appliances, and other possessions? The first thing to do is to consider what your parents wrote in their will. They may have left specific instructions for some things. However, most people don’t list out who gets every plate or knickknack. That’s often left to the executor or, more often, for the entire family to discuss. 


If you have siblings, there may be things they would like to have. Even if they don’t need things such as furniture or appliances, they may have children who have just moved out and are in need of some of those things. You might also have cousins, friends, or even co-workers who could make use of some items you don’t know what to do with. Your parents would love to know that some of their possessions are going to those who need them.


Donating things is also an option. There may be a local charity that could make use of some of your parents’ furniture, clothing, kitchen accessories, and other items. These organizations will make certain anything you donate to them is passed on to those who truly need it.


Another option is to have an estate sale. If your parents had things that you believe are valuable and that others might buy, having a sale is a great way of passing on these things and making a little extra money to help with the other costs of the estate. 


Call Junk King


What do you do if your parents had some stuff that was old, broken, or simply no longer usable? If they had lived in their house for years, it’s very possible the basement, attic, or garage is full of junk. That’s when you should give Junk King a call. Our crew can help you remove everything you don’t need from your parents’ house, apartment, condo, or other space. We’ll do all the hard work, including moving everything out of the house, so you don’t have to worry about moving heavy furniture. 


Junk King doesn’t just throw this stuff out. If you have anything that’s usable, we’ll donate it to one of our local partner organizations. We believe in redirecting things away from the landfill, and that starts with reusing things that are still in good condition. We’ll pass on appliances that still work, furniture that’s still usable, and anything else that someone might need,


For those items that aren’t usable, we’ll try to redirect them to a recycling facility. There’s a lot of junk that ends up in the landfill when it doesn’t need to. Much of what we throw away is actually recyclable or has some recyclable components in it. We’ll get all of it to the correct recycling center.

What Does Junk King Take?


We will haul away just about anything. Old furniture, busted appliances, hot tubs, yard debris, construction waste, trash, old boats…if it’s something you need to get rid of, we can likely put it in our truck. The only thing we cannot handle is hazardous waste. That’s a danger to our crews, so we’re not able to haul it away. However, we may be able to connect you with a hazardous waste company that can deal with it for you.

Call Junk King When You’re Ready to Get Rid of Your Old Mattress


Do you follow the rule of thumb regarding mattresses? Common practice says you need to replace your mattress every eight years, but few people actually do. Often it simply comes down to money: mattresses can be expensive. However, the idea that you need a new mattress every eight years isn’t some scam by the mattress industry to get your money. There are some actual reasons behind that number, many of which have to do with your health.


If you’ve decided to replace your mattress, you then have to do something with the old one. Often, this means getting rid of more than just the mattress. You may need to get rid of the old box springs and even your old bed frame if you’ve upgraded to a larger bed. It can be difficult to get rid of items this large and bulky. That’s where Junk King Plano comes in. We can haul away any old furniture, including mattresses


So is it time to give us a call? Here are some of the signs that you need a new mattress.


Junk King Larger Truck

You’re Not Sleeping Well


A good night’s sleep is vital to your health. If you aren’t sleeping well, your body isn’t able to rest and repair itself. This will affect nearly every part of your overall health, including your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. It will affect your family, your job, and your hobbies. Studies have shown that going long periods of time without good rest leads to being sick more often, have worse chronic health conditions, and simply aren’t as happy.


While there can be other causes for poor sleep, a bad mattress is one of the most common. If you’ve ruled out different health issues along with stress and anxiety, it’s likely that your mattress is the problem. Mattresses do start out well-padded and comfortable, but over time and with use, that changes. Memory foam breaks down, padding shifts, and the coils used in traditional mattresses can lose some of their tension or move out of place. This leads to a loss of support and can make the mattress uncomfortable.


Why is that an issue? During sleep, your body is able to battle infections and repair itself. If you’re not sleeping well, that doesn’t happen. Your body isn’t able to fight off illness as well, nor can it repair injuries or keep chronic health conditions in check. Mentally, you may find it hard to concentrate or focus on tasks. You may have frequent headaches from a lack of sleep, especially if you use a lot of caffeine to try to get some of your energy back. Emotionally, you may find yourself getting angry more quickly or becoming more emotional over minor things. 


How Can You Tell if Your Mattress is no Longer Supporting You?


There’s a fairly easy way to tell if your mattress is providing the support you need. First, remove the sheets and anything else on the mattress. Can you see an impression of your body where you usually sleep? Mattresses shouldn’t have such an indentation. If you don’t see this, lie down on the mattress for a few moments, then get up. How quickly does the mattress rise back up? If you can still see where you were lying for more than a few minutes, it’s likely the mattress isn’t supporting you correctly.


Junk King Heavy Lifting

You May Feel the Lack of Support at Night


Think about how you’ve been sleeping. Do you toss and turn a lot? Do you wake up in the middle of the night because you’re uncomfortable? These are signs that your mattress isn’t supporting your body like it should be. A good mattress shouldn’t put undue pressure on any point of your body. If it is, it’s not cradling you correctly. Another sign that your mattress isn’t providing the right support is if you wake up feeling stiff and sore nearly every morning. 


Sometimes waking up sore is expected. If you were very physically active the day before, it’s likely you’ll feel it the next day. However, if you didn’t do any strenuous activity but are still waking up hurting, there’s a problem. It could be health-related, especially if the pain seems to be focused on one area. However, if your doctor rules that out or if the pain seems widespread, it’s probably the mattress.


On a good mattress, you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding a comfortable position and falling asleep fairly quickly. You should sleep through the night without waking up from discomfort, and you should feel rested when you wake up. If you’re not, it might be time to give Junk King a call so you can get rid of that old mattress.

Other Signs that Your Mattress Needs to be Replaced


In addition to seeing your mattress physically sagging and feeling it poke you in the back, there are a few other physical signs that it needs to go. First, you might hear it. Older coil mattresses can start to creak and groan over the years. This is a good sign that the coils are no longer in the correct position or are starting to wear down. If you hear noise every time you turn over, your mattress’s coils are shot. You’ll want to look for sagging once you start hearing a lot of sound from your mattress. It’s very likely that you’ll see some.


Another thing to look for, or smell for in this case, is an odd odor coming from your mattress. Your mattress shouldn’t smell. If you’ve eaten or drank while in bed, it’s possible some spills have occurred. Your pets may have had accidents on your bed, too. Even if neither of these have happened, your body sweat can soak into the mattress. Anything that creates a warm, damp, dark place can lead to the growth of fungi. This mildew can create an unpleasant odor that’s a sign of more than just a bad smell. Breathing in mildew or, worse, mold, can affect your breathing. You definitely need a new mattress if it stinks.


Finally, stains on the mattress are another good sign that it may be time for a replacement. They look bad, plus they can indicate that the mattress has absorbed some liquids. If you see stains, give the mattress a sniff. You may have mold growing inside it.


But I Haven’t Had My Mattress for Eight Years


Some people sleep horribly on their mattress but are determined to keep it until it hits that eight-year mark. It’s important to remember, though, that the idea of replacing your mattress every eight years isn’t a hard and fast rule. It’s a good suggestion, but you may find that your mattress wears out more quickly. If you lay in bed a lot, have kids that jump on the mattress, or have bought a very cheap mattress, it’s likely going to wear out more quickly. On the other hand, if you take good care of the mattress, it may last you a good ten years or more. 


It can be easy to place the blame on your poor sleep, especially if you haven’t had a mattress for very long. However, if you find that you’re not sleeping well consistently and that you sleep really well when you’re out of town at a hotel, it’s a sign that your mattress is worn out.


What Do You Do with Your Old Mattress?


Getting rid of an old mattress can be a challenge. It’s hard to find a charity that will accept donated mattresses due to hygiene issues. You can put them out for city bulk garbage day, but that day doesn’t come around that often. In the meantime, what do you do with the old mattress? Taking it to the dump can be a challenge as well because you may not have a vehicle big enough to haul a mattress. 


Fortunately, there’s another option for residents of Plano: call Junk King. We will haul away your old mattress, box springs, bedframe, and any other junk you have. We take furniture, appliances, yard waste, DIY remodel debris, and much more. As long as it isn’t hazardous waste, it can go in our truck. We’ll even carry it out of your house for you, so you don’t need to worry about being able to move the mattress yourself.

Tips for Easy Junk Removal in Richardson, TX


Have you ever looked at the different rooms in your home and asked yourself: “Where did all this junk come from?” In today´s society, it is extremely easy to suffer from clutter in the home. In fact, a 2019 survey of more than 3,000 U.S. adults determined that almost 30 percent of U.S. adults had a de-cluttering project planned for that year. Furthermore, over one out of ten U.S. households (10.6 percent) rent a storage unit to store their extra items that simply do not fit in their homes! 

In monetary terms, the average cost of storage space stands at $89.12 per month according to data from 2020. This means that millions of Americans are spending at least $1,000 each year to store their extra “stuff,” much of which is junk items that they will never end up using. 

Living in a cluttered, disorganized home can also be a major source of stress and can negatively affect our mental wellbeing. In terms of time management, many of lose valuable time out of days due to the extra junk that is cluttering our home. Another recent survey found that people believed they could save up to 30 minutes each day if they were more organized and their spaces less cluttered. 

For individuals, homeowners, and business owners in Richardson, TX, what might be the best way to free up needed space in your home and business? In most cases, hiring a private junk removal company offers the most efficient way to get rid of your junk. With private junk haulers, you will not have to wait for a special bulk item pickup date. Furthermore, the best private junk haulers like Junk King of Plano  will be able to do all of the heavy lifting and hauling for you. 

Below, we offer three helpful tips for how to make the most of your private junk removal for the fastest, most effective, most affordable, and most environmentally friendly junk removal.

Richardson Junk Removal Tip #1: Do a Walk-Through to Determine What Goes and What Stays 


If you are doing a major de-cluttering of your home or business, it is important to take the time to ensure you are not accidentally throwing away any family heirloom items or other things that may have special sentimental value. Thus, before hiring a private junk removal with Junk King of Plano, it is usually best to take the time 

To avoid setbacks, we usually recommend that our clients take time to go through the junk items to ensure that they are not accidentally throwing away certain items that might have a sentimental value attached to them. In the past, we have helped clients with estate foreclosures, estate cleanouts, downsizing, and other moments when a major de-clutter is necessary. During all of these moments, it is well worth your time to carefully go through all of the items to ensure that you have identified all of the keepsakes, antiques, and other items that might hold important sentimental value to you and your family.


Richardson Junk Removal Tip #2: Dedicate a Space on your Property for the Junk Items 


One of the greatest aspects that comes with hiring Junk King for all of junk removal needs is that we are able to do all of the heavy lifting and hauling for you. We understand that many of our clients simply do not have the time, energy, or means to haul 200-pound refrigerator or bulky couch out to their driveway. When you hire us, then, you simply have to let us know what items you want removed and where they are located. Our junk removal teams will do the rest! In fact, for a small fee, our junk removal professional can even help you with minor demolition of certain items that need to be broken down in order to be hauled away in our truck. 

At the same time, we appreciate the fact that many people may not want strangers wandering through their home. We take the health, welfare, and privacy of our customers very seriously. During every junk removal service, our teams will maintain a 6-foot distance from every customer. If you prefer, we also offer “no-contact” junk removal service where our trucks can pick up curbside, never entering your home. Simply send us photos for a touch-less price quote. You can pay for our services over the phone to limit social exposure. Gloves, masks and hand sanitizers are provided on every truck used to protect you and our haulers.

For clients who do prefer “contact-less” junk removal service, it is best to designate a specific place on your property where you can temporarily store your junk until you´re ready for us to come and haul it away.

Richardson Junk Removal Tip #3: Prioritize the Greenest Junk Removal Company in the Region 


Lastly, getting rid of excess junk items can also be a way to give back to your community. Here in Richardson, they are hundreds of families who might appreciate the opportunity to receive donated items or purchase those used items for a discounted price. Unfortunately, most private junk haulers simply take the junk they pick up straight to the landfill. 

With Junk King of Plano, however, our junk removal teams take the extra time and effort to sort through all of the junk items that we pick up. This allows us to determine what items can be donated, recycled, or otherwise repurposed. We have developed strong, working relationships with several donation centers, thrift stores, and other charities where we routinely take junk items that are still in decent condition. For broken items that are beyond repair, we also work with several recycling centers and businesses to help keep your junk items out of the dump. Lastly, our company is also dedicated to abiding by all relevant laws and regulations regarding proper, safe disposal of e-waste and other potentially hazardous waste items.

When Should You Call Junk King Plano?


When does junk go from “I can get rid of this on my own” to “this is too much, I need help”? It’s not always easy to tell, and some people don’t realize just how much stuff they have to get rid of until they’re halfway through trying to deal with it. Sometimes it’s obvious: if you’ve cleaned out your closet and have a couple of small bags of clothing, you can easily get rid of them on your own. All you have to do is drop them in a donation bin or even your trash dumpster. On the other hand, if you have several old pieces of furniture to toss, you know it’s not going to be that simple.


So where is the line? When should you give Junk King Plano a call? Here are some of the most common projects that we help residents and businesses with.


You’re Doing a Major Cleaning


During a normal week, you know how much trash you’ll likely make, and you know you can deal with it using your city garbage bins. Even if you have a few extra boxes or other trash, it’s no big deal. If you’re doing a major clean out, though, you’re going to have a lot more trash. You may have a dozen boxes, all of the things that were in those boxes, old furniture, and even old appliances. What do you do with these things?


Junk King can haul them all off. You won’t have to worry about what you can fit in your garbage bin because you’ll have our entire truck at your disposal. Any time you’re cleaning out your garage, shed, basement, or attic, you may need to make use of a junk hauling service in Plano. This is especially true if you haven’t cleaned out these spaces in years. You may not even know what you’ve got in your basement. Even worse, you may have had a water leak or rodents get into the space. You may have to get rid of things you had planned on keeping because they’re damaged beyond repair.


If you’re a business owner, you may also have more trash than you can fit in your standard dumpster. Cleaning out old marketing materials, display units, and even old product can result in piles of garbage that has to go somewhere. Junk King can help you, too. We work with a number of businesses in the Plano area. Whether you need us to come every few months to haul away stuff or just once or twice a year when you purge old items, we’re here for you.

You’re Doing a DIY Project


Home DIY projects have become quite popular in recent years thanks to the many different renovation shows on HGTV and other networks. While these projects aren’t always as easy as the professionals on TV make them appear to be, there are still plenty of people out there who can handle them. If you’re a DIY enthusiast and are preparing to do some remodeling to your home, you’re going to want to reach out to Junk King.


These projects typically create a lot of trash. Even small remodels may have more debris than you expect. You have all of the old stuff you remove, which can include flooring, drywall, cabinets, fixtures, appliances, and even things like piping and wiring. Next, you have the packaging that your new materials come in. Then you may have left over materials that you don’t need or small remnants from where you cut pieces to fit. This can all add up quickly, leaving you with a good amount of trash that’s just taking up space.


Junk King handles DIY construction debris like this all the time. The only thing we may not be able to take is leftover paint because it’s classified as a hazardous material. In order for us to take it, you’ll need to mix the paint with a special hardening product or, depending on the type of paint, you can use basic cat litter. Once the paint has solidified, we can dispose of it. For other garbage such as flooring, old cabinets, appliances, etc., we can usually haul it away like it is.

You’re Remodeling Your Office or Storefront


Business owners may do some renovations, too. You may need to redo some shelving or get rid of some furniture. Office furniture is one thing that can easily stack up. You don’t always want to get rid of desks, chairs, and other furniture that’s still good, but on the other hand, it doesn’t help if all you do is stick it in a back room or basement. It’s just going to take up space, and by the time you do decide you might need something, it may no longer even be in good condition. 


We can help you get rid of any of this old furniture, shelving, and much more. Of course, we can take other debris from your DIY renovation, too, such as old flooring, cabinets, and appliances. 


You’re Taking Down a Structure in Your Yard


Everyone loves a nice deck or patio, and a backyard shed is often a necessity. Your kids may have a playhouse, treehouse, or swing set they enjoyed daily when they were young. Over time, though, all of these structures start to break down. While you can make repairs to them, eventually, they’re going to be damaged to the point that the only solution is to take them down and replace them. 


This, of course, means you’ve got to get rid of all the debris from these structures. What do you do with all the old lumber from a deck or a shed? How do you get rid of that old swing set? The solution, of course, is to give Junk King Plano a call. We routinely help residents with these types of structures. We haul away demolished sheds, green houses, playhouses, patios, decks, gazebos, pergolas, and just about anything else you’ve got in your backyard. We’ll even take your old fence. When we’re done, you’ll have the space you need to start your new backyard project.

Call Us to Haul Away Storm Debris


With backyard projects and DIY work, you know you’re going to have debris to get rid of. It’s planned, so you can reach out to us ahead of time and have a plan. When a storm blows through, you may have some concerns about limbs coming down, but you don’t know what’s going to happen exactly. If it’s just a few small branches, you can deal with that. When it’s several huge limbs or an entire tree, though, you’re going to need some help.


We can help you deal with the debris from storms, including trees, damaged structures, destroyed patio furniture, and more. We do our best to get out to help customers as soon as we can. We know you need to get your yard cleaned up quickly, especially if the tree came down across your driveway or your patio. 


Even if it didn’t come down in a storm, we can still haul away tree limbs, bushes, and other landscaping waste. It doesn’t matter if the tree came down due to high winds or your chainsaw, we’ll get rid of it for you. 


What Does Junk King Do with the Stuff We Pick Up?


When Junk King Plano picks up debris, we won’t just take it to the landfill. Instead, we’ll take anything that’s still in good condition out and donate it to charitable organizations. Once we’ve donated what we can, which does include old furniture, appliances, office furniture, and anything else usable, we’ll start looking at what we can have recycled. We redirect a lot of the bulk trash we pick up to recycling centers, reducing our impact on the environment significantly. Few, if any, other junk hauling services in the Plano area do this. There’s no extra charge to you, either.

So When Should You Call Junk King Plano? 


Any time you have a lot of trash, whether it’s large items or a good amount of small stuff, it’s time to give us a call. You deserve a clean house free of junk, and that’s what we’ll give you. Whether it’s your home garage or your business’s showroom, if you’ve got garbage, we’ll haul it right out the door and into our trucks.


We provide a free, no-obligation estimate with every project. This estimate will include all fees and other costs. We are fully transparent, and you’ll never be hit with any extra fee or charge after the job’s been done.

Benefits to Working with Junk King Plano


Trash and junk are never worth keeping. All it does is take up space in your home and get in your way. Getting rid of it, especially if you have a lot of bulk trash that can’t simply be tossed in your city garbage bin, isn’t always easy. That’s where working with a junk hauling company such as Junk King Plano comes into play. There are many benefits to partnering with someone who has years of experience in junk hauling. The next time you have a lot of junk to get rid of, consider giving us a call. Here are some of the benefits you’ll get from working with Junk King Plano.


We Do All the Hard Work


Getting rid of things like old furniture and appliances is a lot of work. These items are heavy and bulky. Even the ones that don’t weigh a lot may be too big to easily fit through doorways and down halls, making you have to twist and turn them to move them through the house. Some people may not be capable of lifting heavy items or have the help they need to move large pieces of furniture. 


When you call Junk King, you’re calling in a team of people who can lift, twist, turn, push, and pull anything out of your home. It doesn’t matter how large or how heavy the junk is. We can get it out. We will work out the best way to get things through doorways, around tight corners, and up or down stairs. You don’t have to do any of this work. 


Junk King Larger Truck


You Won’t Hurt Yourself


One of the reasons why some people can’t move furniture and appliances is because they would injure themselves doing so. Those who have bad knees or have injured their backs may not be able to physically lift these items without risking physical pain and injury. The older you get, the more likely it becomes that you could injure yourself. If you sustained injuries in the past, those parts of your body are also more susceptible to re-injury. You don’t want to throw your back out trying to get an old sofa out of your house.


Our crews understand the safest ways of moving large, bulky items. They have various safety gear, too, such as knee and back braces, to help them do so without injuring themselves. If you’re concerned about moving large junk out of your home, don’t risk it. Give Junk King instead and let us handle it.


We Have the Necessary Equipment to Move Heavy Items


When moving heavy furniture, appliances, and other trash, you need to have the right equipment. Dollies are very helpful for safely and easily moving refrigerators, while sliders can help with sofas. Two-person shoulder straps can help move things such as washing machines. You may not have the right equipment to make moving heavy items easy, but we do. Instead of buying any of that stuff, just let us come in and take care of it all. 


Junk King Heavy Lifting


We Protect Your Home


Another danger to moving large items yourself is that you could bang them against doorframes, scratch up your flooring, or even bump into a light fixture and break it. Our teams are very careful when moving anything, and we always watch for things we could bump into. In fact, we may actually ask you to move fragile items if we’re concerned that they could get bumped. When we begin moving the junk out, we take careful note of the light fixtures and anything else we need to avoid. We don’t rush—we make certain that no furniture legs will damage door frames or bang into walls. 


Just like how moving junk shouldn’t be dangerous to you, it shouldn’t do damage to your home. It can be very easy to accidentally scratch or bang up various parts of your home trying to move furniture and appliances yourself, which is why it’s best to leave it to the experts. The last thing you want to do is have to go in and spend money on repairs caused by trash.


No Truck? No Problem


Do you have a truck you could use to haul junk to the city landfill? If you don’t, how will you get bulk trash there? You may reach out to friends or family who have trucks and ask to borrow them. This can work, but you often have to abide by their schedule. This means you may have to store trash for several weeks or even a month or two until your truck-owning friend can come help you. 


The other option is to rent a truck, but that’s a lot of work and money just to haul stuff to the dump. There’s also the risk of damaging the vehicle. If you scratch the paint or break a taillight while loading up a large piece of furniture, you’ll have to pay for it.

You Can Get Rid of Trash When You Want to.


Plano does offer bulk waste pickup, but it’s only done on specific dates. If you miss that date, you’re stuck holding onto the old appliance for weeks. What do you do with it? If you have replaced the things you want to get rid of already, you have to put the old items in your garage or another room. They’re going to be in your way, which can be very annoying. If you forget to put them out for the next pickup, then you’re stuck with them for another month. Junk King will come as soon as possible to haul off whatever junk you have. You won’t be left holding onto it for days, weeks, or months.


We Take Just About Everything


Some junk hauling companies, including the city’s bulk waste service, won’t take everything. You may get most of your junk ready to go only to find out that half the stuff you want hauled off isn’t acceptable. 


Junk King takes nearly everything. Old furniture, appliances, computers, hot tubs…you name it, we likely take it. The one thing Junk King Plano cannot accept, however, is hazardous waste. Anything classified as hazardous has very specific handling requirements. If you have hazardous wastes, we may be able to recommend a qualified disposal facility, but we can’t put it in our trucks.


We Donate and Recycle What We Can


If you have an old chair, table, or sofa, you may not want to throw it in the landfill. It might no longer be right for you, but you know it still has some life left in it. Your choices may appear to be limited to either giving it to someone or donating it. The problem is that, again, you run into the issue of getting the item out of your home. You have some way of getting them to another person’s home or to the donation center. Even if you find an organization that picks up donations, you’re still likely going to have to get the items out to the curb. 


Junk King Discount Coupon




We offer a third option. When Junk King picks up items, we look to see if they can be donated or recycled. Items that are still in good shape will get donated to one of the local charitable organizations we work with. These organizations will see to it that the items get to those in need. If there are things that cannot be donated but are made out of recyclable materials, we will redirect them to a recycling facility. 


Our goal is to prevent as much as possible from going to the landfill. This means doing a little extra work on our end, but the rewards are more than worth it. Through Junk King, you get to help make people’s lives a little better by passing along items you no longer need while also helping to protect the environment


We Keep Prices Low


When you reach out to Junk King Plano for a free, no-obligation quote, the first thing you’ll notice is that we list every possible fee and charge. We want you to fully understand the cost. All of our prices are based on how much space in one of our trucks your trash will take up. If it’s a small amount, the price will be considerably lower than what you might see from a competitor. Our trucks are also on average 20 percent bigger than those used by other companies, so that also helps reduce the cost. 


You can receive a free quote from Junk King four different ways. For a basic item or two, our online pricing tool can give you a fairly accurate quote. If you have questions or need to give us specific details about something, you can get a quote over the phone by calling 1-888-888-JUNK. You can also text images and information to 1-737-888-5865. Finally, you can also book an in-person estimate. We may have to do this anyway if you have a lot of stuff you need hauled away. 


Whether you have a few items or a whole house of junk, you can benefit from working with Junk King Plano. Contact us today for a free quote.


Yard Waste Removal in Allen, Texas: What You Need to Know


Now that fall time has rolled around, most homeowners and residents in Allen, TX are probably thinking about spending a weekend or two tidying up their yard. With the colder weather coming, you might be closing up your pool for the year, preparing your garden for the overwintering period, pruning some shrubs, or giving your yard one last mowing for the year. And of course, you have to do something about all those leaves falling on your yard. 

Though some people may look forward to the annual fall tradition of raking leaves and cleaning up the yard, others rightfully despise it. If you would prefer to not waste a weekend cleaning up massive amounts of yard waste that is piling up around your property, hiring Junk King of Plano is most likely your best option for a fast, effective, affordable, and environmentally friendly yard waste removal. 

Junk King Larger Truck

A Few Statistics on Yard Waste That You should Know


After a couple days of cleaning up your yard, it can be astonishing to see just how much yard waste can be collected throughout the year. Have you ever wondered how much yard waste is accumulated every year and where it eventually ends up? According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) your grass clippings, twigs and limbs, and the shrubs you pruned throughout the year adds up to around 216 pounds of yard waste generated per person, per year. Across the country, that amounts to more than 35 million tons of yard waste per year, or about 12 percent of the total amount of municipal solid waste (MSW).

Fortunately, yard waste can be composted or turned into mulch, instead of simply being sent to the local landfill. Again, the EPA estimates that around 22.3 million tons of yard trimmings are either composted or turned into mulch each year. This means that yard waste has a 63 percent composting rate, which is significantly higher than the recycling rate for other types of waste streams. 

Unfortunately, much of our yard waste continues to be either burned or sent to the landfill. The total amount of yard waste that was burnt or combusted in 2018 was 2.6 million tons. Furthermore, in 2018, landfills received about 10.5 million tons of yard waste, which comprised 7.2 percent of all MSW landfilled. Grass clippings, fallen leaves, branches, and other types of yard waste contribute to enormous amounts of methane gas emissions when sent to the landfill. Methane gas is one of the most potent greenhouse gasses.

As a company, we are proud to say that we recycle, donate, or repurpose 60 percent of what we haul away, and with yard waste that number tends to be even higher.

What to Do with Construction & Demo Debris in McKinney, TX


Here in McKinney, Texas, every month it seems like hundreds of new homes are being built. According to recent statistics, home builders in North Texas started construction of 14,871 new single-family houses in the second quarter of this year alone. Though solid growth in new home construction generally corresponds with a healthy economy, it also creates an enormous amount of waste that needs to be dealt with. Construction and demolition debris, also known as C&D debris, is one of the largest contributors to our collective waste stream. 

In this short article, we will explain what C&D debris consists of and why it is important to recycle as much C&D debris as possible. We then outline why Junk King of Plano is the best option for homeowners and home builders looking for the most efficient, affordable, and environmentally friendly way to dispose of their C&D debris.

What is Construction and Demolition Debris? 

Construction and demolition (C&D) waste refers to any type of junk, waste, or leftover material that is generated from construction, renovation, repair, and demolition of houses, large building structures, roads, bridges, piers, and dams. C&D waste is mostly made up of wood, steel, concrete, gypsum, masonry, plaster, metal, and asphalt. 

It is estimated that 600 million U.S. short tons (about 544 million tons) of construction and demolition debris were generated in the United States in 2018. To put this number into perspective, that is more than twice the amount of generated municipal solid waste (MSW). That means that that scrap plywood, old windows, broken bricks, twisted steel and rebar, and other types of C&D debris is by far the biggest contributor to our nation’s waste streams. 

Due to its bulky and heavy nature, C&D debris can take up an enormous amount of space in landfills around the country. Fortunately, the vast majority of construction and demolition debris is eventually recovered, reused, or recycled. In 2018, the recovery and recycle rate for C&D debris stood at 76 percent, compared to just over 30 percent for municipal solid waste. 

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that reducing the amount of C&D materials disposed of in landfills or incinerators can: 

    1. Create employment and economic activities in recycling industries and provide increased business opportunities within the local community, especially when deconstruction and selective demolition methods are used; 
    2. Reduce overall building project expenses through avoided purchase/disposal costs, and the donation of recovered materials to qualified 501(c)(3) charities, which provides a tax benefit. 
    3. Lead to fewer disposal facilities, potentially reducing the associated environmental issues.
    4. Offset the environmental impact associated with the extraction and consumption of virgin resources and production of new materials
    5. And conserve landfill space.

Heavy Lifting, Without Moving A Muscle

What is the Best Way to Responsibly Deal with C&D Debris? 

Whether you are a homeowner who is doing some DIY renovations on your home, or a major building contractor that builds dozens of homes each year, finding a way to responsibly deal with your C&D debris should be a high priority. Even though C&D debris has a much higher recycling and recovery rate than other types of trash such as plastics, we are still collectively dumping millions of tons of potentially recyclable or reusable waste and debris into our rapidly diminishing landfills.

For individuals, homeowners, and businesses in McKinney, TX, Junk King of Plano of specializes in construction waste and debris removal. We have been providing the top-rated junk removal services to the Plano area, including the cities of Allen, Dallas, McKinney, Plano, Richardson, and Wylie. So why exactly should you hire us for your C&D debris removal needs? 

  1. We do the heavy lifting and hauling: As any builder knows, the sheer amount of leftover plywood scraps, broken shingles, and other surplus materials tends to add up over the course of a building project. When you hire us for your C&D debris removal needs, our junk removal teams will do all of the heavy lifting and hauling, so that you can focus on finishing up the construction. 
  2. We go the extra mile to donate, recycle, or repurpose whatever we can: Another difference between Junk King and other junk removal companies out there is that our business model is founded on a commitment to the environment. When we haul away your C&D debris, our teams take the time to sort through items. If there are things that can be donated to Habitat for Humanity or other similar charities, we make sure that those items are sent to where they are needed. We also work with several different recycling centers in our region so as to ensure that the vast majority of what we haul away stays out of our fast-filling-up landfills. As a company, we are proud to say that we recycle, donate, or repurpose 60 percent of what we haul away, and with C&D debris, that number tends to be even higher. 
  3. We offer the most affordable and competitive prices on the market: We have some of the biggest junk hauling trucks on the market. At the same, we are also one of the few junk removal companies that charges you by volume, or the amount of space that your junk takes up in our truck. The combination of these two features means that we are generally able to offer the most affordable prices for C&D debris removal in McKinney and the surrounding area. 
  4. We offer transparent pricing mechanisms: Lastly, we believe that all of our residential and commercial clients have a right to know exactly how much they will be charged for any junk removal need. We offer four different ways to get a transparent cost estimate, including free on-site pricing. You can also call us, text us, or use our online pricing calculator to get a fair and transparent quote for your C&D debris removal needs.

Why Turn to a Junk Hauling Service in Plano?


Getting rid of junk is something everyone needs to do from time to time, but it’s not always easy. There are several different options available, but most of those options either require you to do most of the work yourself or that you wait until a specific time. There are also often restrictions on what bulk trash and large items different services will take. That’s why your best option is to turn to a junk hauling service such as Junk King. 


There are many reasons why working with Junk King can be the ideal solution to your junk hauling needs. If you’re ready to clean out your home and reclaim space that junk has taken up, here are a few ways Junk King can help.

Bigger Trucks

One of the worst parts of getting rid of large, bulky items such as sofas and refrigerators is that they’re hard to move. It typically takes at least two people, though if you’re going up and down stairs or around tight corners, sometimes you need at least one more person to direct you. Then there’s the issue of trying to twist and turn pieces to fit them through doorways or down the hall. If you live in an apartment or condo and aren’t on the ground floor, you then have to deal with getting the junk into an elevator or hauling it down several flights of stairs.


With all of this lifting, it’s very easy for someone to get hurt. You could pull your back, drop something on your foot, get your fingers pinched, or even end up trapped under a heavy cabinet or appliance if things go really wrong. There are dozens of different ways someone could get hurt when moving a really heavy, bulky item.


Junk King doesn’t require you to move anything out of your home. Our team will come in and take things directly out of the rooms they’re in. All you have to do is let us know where the items are. We have the training, experience, and equipment needed to safely take anything out of your house, apartment, or condo without hurting ourselves or anyone else.


You Also Won’t Damage Anything


While you likely don’t care if the junk you’re getting rid of gets banged up, you don’t want your floors, doorframes, or other things damaged. This is another real danger when you try to get large items out of your home on your own. It’s very possible to break light fixtures, damage flooring, and even break the glass in doors while trying to move furniture out. If you’re going to make use of the city’s bulk trash pickup or use some junk hauling companies, you will need to get the trash out to the curb. 


With Junk King, though, that’s never a concern. We’ll haul everything out carefully and safely. You won’t have to worry about any damage to your home because we’ll always be very careful. If an accident does occur, we’re fully bonded and insured, so you’ll never be out any money to make repairs. 

Heavy Lifting, Without Moving A Muscle

No Truck? No Problem


If you’re planning on hauling your trash down to the city landfill yourself, you’re going to have to have a vehicle large enough to do so. That means at minimum you’ll need a pickup truck. While it’s very easy to find someone with a truck in Texas, it may not always be easy to make your schedules line up. This means you may have to store junk for several weeks until your friend or relative with a truck can come help you. Your other option may be to rent a truck, but that just adds more cost to getting rid of trash, something that should never be that costly. 


Even if you have a truck, you still have to load up your broken furniture, appliances, and other trash into it. Again, this could potentially lead to hurting yourself, especially if you have to lift heavy objects up into the truck bed. Then you have to unload it at the landfill. There’s also the risk of damaging your truck or causing damage to other people’s vehicles, especially if you have several items stacked up in the truck bed but don’t have them all secured properly. Something could fall off and cause a traffic accident. 


If you don’t live too close to the dump, this can become an all-day project. If you have so much stuff that you can’t fit it all in the truck, you’ll either have to find another person with a truck to help or make multiple trips. It’s possible this task could take multiple days. If you can’t set aside a weekend or several days out of the week to do this, you could end up making trips to the landfill sporadically over the next three or four months. In the meantime, you have all this junk taking up space in your home, garage, or shed.

You Save Time


You could spend all day hauling junk out of your home, loading it up, and taking it to the landfill, but you could also spend that day with your family or just relaxing. When you hire a junk hauling service, you’ll save all that time. If you only have a few things to get rid of, Junk King can be in and out in less than an hour. Even if you have a whole house full of trash, you still only have to set aside time for having it removed from the home. You’re not driving to the landfill or unloading everything.


You Get Junk Out of Your House Quickly


Waiting for the city’s bulk trash pickup or until you can set aside time to go to the landfill means you’re going to be holding on to the junk in your home for a little while longer. It’s just going to sit there and take up space that you could be using for other things. If you have a lot of trash in your garage, you may not even be able to park your car in it. 


Even if you don’t have that much junk, there’s always the risk of running into the “out of sight, out of mind” issue. You may plan on putting that old chair out for bulk trash pickup, but what happens if you forget? Now you’re stuck with it for another month. This can happen with trying to get to the landfill, too. You may have plans to do that, but then you have to move them because something else came up. In the end, months can pass without getting the trash to the dump because, after all, who wants to prioritize junk?


Why Junk King Plano?


Why should Junk King Plano be your go-to for junk hauling services? First, we’re one of the best-reviewed junk haulers in the country, and our team is fully dedicated to customer service. If you’re not happy about something, we want to know it. When you’re hiring Junk King, we want to provide a smooth, easy process from start to finish. We’ll arrive promptly at the scheduled time, quickly remove junk from your home without damaging anything, and be on our way so you can get back to your life. 


We’re also fully dedicated to the environment. We do everything possible to redirect the junk we pick up away from the landfill. This can mean donating furniture and other items that are still usable to a local charity or sending anything made of recyclable materials to a recycling facility. In the end, around a third of what we pick up does go to the landfill, but we’re always actively looking for ways to reduce that amount even more.


Our unique pricing structure guarantees you’ll always get the best deal. Instead of charging for an entire truck, we only charge by how much space your trash takes up. Since our trucks are 20 percent larger than most of our competitors’ trucks, one or two items won’t take up a lot of room. You’ll always be given an estimate upfront that will include all fees and potential extra costs. 


What Does Junk King Take?


Junk King Plano can take more than many other junk haulers or trash companies will take. We will haul away old furniture, appliances, electronics, yard waste, construction waste, and much more. In short, as long as it isn’t hazardous waste, we will take it. If you have any questions about something, all you need to do is call or text us. We’ll let you know if it’s something Junk King can get rid of.
