It is safe to say that everyone’s summer plans have “gone right out the window.” Whatever thoughts of a vacation you had back in January have no doubt been changed with the reality of being in the midst of a pandemic. As disappointing as that is you can also look at the bright side. For one, you will be saving money for sure. Also, when it is time to go back for a vacation you will surely be able to score a great deal! But one of the most important benefits of sticking around the house for the summer is affording you the opportunity to get your home in the exact shape that you always wanted to be. That could involve anything from a backyard makeover to finally clearing out all the clutter from the garage. Fortunately, Junk King Portland is standing by to help facilitate those projects by providing its exceptional cleanup support.
The New Way Forward
Making a task like junk removal safe has always been a priority for Junk King. Now there are just added levels such as making sure all of our crews wear masks and gloves and also promoting social distancing for pickups. A lot of these pickups are being taken care of by having clients put items out on their porch or driveway. The Junk King crew can swoop in and load up the truck with her objects and conduct all the payments over the phone and by text. If there remains a bigger object that has to be taken from the home, then the Junk King crew will find a way to make that happen while promoting social distancing.
This dedication to keeping everyone safe carries through to our pricing policies. We want to make that easy as well. Junk King continues to charge a flat rate that is based on how the truck is pack up with all the things getting rid of. The mission is to make sure everything gets packed into as little space as possible. That will result in you paying the low end of the price scale.
