Durham NC Mattress Disposal

mattress disposal serviceIf you’re lucky enough to share your bed with a loved one each night then it only stands to reason that both of your need to be in on the process of picking a new mattress. As you head out to the local Durham mattress showroom you’ll be presented with many types of mattresses from the classic innerspring to a pillow top to a memory foam and even a waterbed (yes, they still make those!). There are even mattresses that can be split to accommodate the desires of two separate sleepers. What is important is that you take the time to test the mattress in the store. Lay down on the side you would normally lay down on and spend several minutes there to get a feel of the mattress. This is the Goldilocks test. You want to make sure it’s not too hard or too soft but just right.

Even after you get your new mattress delivered to your home there will be a period of adjustment before your body gets used to it. Ideally you should give yourself at least three weeks for things to settle in. If the mattress isn’t working after that amount of time then you should consider sending it back and trying a new model. This is why you want to be sure the store you’re buying from has a decent return policy. While you’re at it, you might want to invest in a new pillow to match your mattress.

Before you can accept that new mattress you need to get rid of the old one. This is where a company like Junk King Raleigh can come into play. Many mattress sellers around the Durham, NC area offer removal but for a fee. Even though you’ll be paying for the Junk King services you’ll be getting a lot more than just a single mattress removal. When you hire Junk King they will be able to take away all your unwanted stuff in the same pickup appointment. This means you can get rid of the mattress, clear out the garage, clean up the basement and clear out the attic. Junk King Raleigh will provide you with a two-man crew and big truck to fill up. The possibilities for decluttering your home are endless.

When the JK crew is done with removing stuff from the inside of your home they can do the same on the outside. This is your chance to clear out all the debris left over from the last storm or remodeling project. Whatever you’ve got to throw out, give it to Junk King Raleigh. And to think it all started with getting rid of your old mattress!

Raleigh Trash Cleanouts

The last Labor Day weekend was no holiday for a lot of Raleigh residents. That’s because a major thunderstorm rocked through the area knocking out power, causing flash floods and generally disrupting everyone’s lives. Among the recorded damage were trees falling on houses, fires sparked by lightening, floods in parking lots and plenty of damage to basements. According the the record keepers, the storm generated winds up to 58 mph and dropped quarter-sized balls of hail. Not a terrific way to kick off the fall. At least Junk King was standing by to help with the cleanup effort.

Junk King Raleigh is the local junk removal service that is part of a national chain of professional haulers. You might not think you need high standards for removing junk but don’t tell that to Junk King. They value their reputation of excellent customer care and dependable service. If you’re using the Junk King name you’re going to have to live up to those standards. Here in Raleigh that’s not a problem for the dedicated crews who are proud to carry the Junk King banner!

If you call Junk King Raleigh to help with an after storm cleanup project you can rest assured that they will get to your home ASAP. That can even mean same day service. Remember, these are the pros so they won’t be sitting around waiting for the next call. Usually, when a Junk King crew starts out in the morning with an empty truck, they will be several stops before it is filled up and has to be off loaded. If you catch the truck when they are making the rounds then there is no reason why they can’t swing by your place that same day.

Once Junk King Raleigh shows up you just need to tell the crew what you want removed and they’ll take it from there. Often after a storm, homeowners will drag damaged belongings out to the curb for pickup. They might have to do that if they are waiting for the city to come by. Who knows how long that will take! With Junk King, they’ll go to where you junk is. If that means several trips up and down the basement then so be it!
