Raleigh NC Junk Hauling

There was a time not too long ago when the only method of getting rid of junk in Raleigh was to do it yourself. This was usually an all day affair. First you would have to make sure you had help. A trip to the dump yard means you were taking bulky items that can’t fit into your trashcan and that means you needed help lifting them. This was when you saw who your true friends were for sure! You would also have to have had a big enough truck to haul off what you’re dumping. Once again, it meant asking a friend for help because they had a big enough pickup.

After loading up your friend’s truck it’s off to the dump you went. You already know what a beautiful city Raleigh is so that means the local dump isn’t really all that “local.” It’s going to be a bit of a drive. Arriving at the dump would have you waiting in line behind a lot of other folks looking to make a drop off. Keep in mind this isn’t a free service. You’d be charged for dumping in a landfill. By the time you get back home you’re tired, smelly and frustrated that this is how you spent your weekend off. Is there a better way? Two words: Junk King.

Junk King Raleigh is part of a national franchise of professional junk haulers and they’ve just opened up a shop here in Raleigh. A call to Junk King means you don’t have to do any lifting, borrowing or driving. A Junk King supervisor will be coming out to your place to take a gander at all your junk. You don’t have to move it around for him or clean it up. Just take him on a little tour and point out the furniture, mattress, stove or boxes of junk you want taken away. Once they get a sense of how much you’re tossing out they’ll write you up an estimate. That price will be based on how much space your junk is going to take up in a Junk King truck. This is the best way to give you a fair price without hidden fees or hourly rates. You then get to set up an appointment for the Junk King removal session. If you can’t be home and want to pile your junk up in the driveway that won’t be a problem. If weekends or after work hours are better for your schedule that won’t be a problem. Junk King is here to serve you not the other way around.

On the day of the appointment, the Junk King crew will show up on time and get the job done without any fuss. Before you know it you’ll have a home free of useless clutter. Isn’t that the way it’s supposed to be?

Raleigh Junk Removal

What’s your favorite whirligig? Never heard of a whirligig? It might be that you’ve seen a whirligig you just don’t know that was its name. Whirligigs are wind-driven creations constructed from motor fans, cotton spindles and other recycled parts. Simply put, its junk turned into functioning art and they’re being built right here in Raleigh. Vollis Simpson is a local artist who has a warehouse in Lucama. There he supervises a crew of about 16 towards the creation of these sculptures; some of which stand as tall as 50 feet. And Vollis is 93 with no signs of slowing down. In fact, he is pushing to put the finishing touches on the Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park schedule to open in Wilson sometime next year.

All of this begs the question: What could you make out of your junk? Admit it; you’ve got junk, right? We all do. It’s a natural by-product of living. Through our travels we collect things. We even collect things if we never move from the home we grew up in. What makes something junk as opposed to a precious heirloom is time and usage. Those two elements work hand in hand. Suppose you have an old pool table down in the basement. There was a time when the kids loved shooting stick but now they’re grown up and moved on. Nobody plays pool. Doesn’t that make the pool table junk? Sure you could try to sell it on Craigslist but if the felt is torn up, it’s scruffy and billiard balls are missing then it really is heading towards junk territory. Unfortunately, you can’t toss that pool table out with the garbage.

You can apply that same scenario with just about anything: old furniture, boxes of clothes, auto parts, and lumber scraps. Basically, if there is something you haven’t used in over six months or it’s busted up its junk and it’s time to get rid of that. Thanks to Junk King Raleigh, getting rid of junk is easier than ever.

Junk King is a new company that is part of the Raleigh business community. They’re a national franchise of professional junk haulers. Because they are a national franchise they must adhere to high standards when it comes to the type of work they conduct. This isn’t some “fly by night” guy driving around in your neighborhood in a pickup truck. These are licensed and insured workers who know what they’re doing. And what they do best is clear out the clutter of our lives.

When you hire a Junk King Raleigh crew you’re getting a promise that they’ll show up on time and only charge you want their estimate will be for moving out all your junk. That estimate will be based on the amount of truck space your junk will be taking up. It’s just that simple. Don’t take any chances; call Junk King today for all your junk removal needs.
