Is it time for you to make a list and check it twice? No, we’re not discussing a “naughty or nice” list but a moving list. If you’re looking towards moving into a new home or apartment in the New Year then you should be well on your way to packing up. The earlier you can start the packing phase the better off you’ll be in terms of your stress levels. This doesn’t mean you have to pack up everything in a day but if you’re weeks from the big move day you can start with small things like a bookshelf a day or a cabinet a day. Before you know it you’ll have everything you need ready for the movers.
The thing to make sure is that you label those boxes not only with the contents but also where is will be going in your new home. The easier you can make it for the movers the better off moving day will be. It will also be less expensive because once the movers show up the meter starts running. If they have to waste time carrying boxes from room to room you’re going to end up getting a bigger bill then you expected.
Another way to save on moving expenses is to actually have a junk removal day before the actual move day. This is where you’ll be getting rid of all the junk you’ve noticed you’ve collected over the years. It’s when we’re forced to pack up everything that we realize just how much junk we’re hanging onto. You certainly don’t want to start a new life in a new space by carrying all that old junk with you. You don’t have to when you hire Junk King Raleigh for the removal chores.
With Junk King Raleigh helping out you won’t have to fuss with renting a truck; that’s part of the deal. You’ll also be getting a two-man crew to do all the backbreaking work of lifting and carrying your junk. But don’t feel guilty: those crews are professionally trained to haul heavy objects and think nothing of moving a sofa or fridge.
As you pack, you could start to build up a pile of your discarded stuff for the Junk King removal. But even that is more effort then you need to exert. The Junk King Raleigh crew will go where your junk is whether that’s down in the basement, up in the attic or out in the garage. Just tell them what you want removed and they’ll handle the rest. It couldn’t be any easier!
Did you have a good gardening season? This past summer was certainly proof positive that we’re living through some wacky weather but that doesn’t mean home gardeners didn’t manage to eke out a decent little harvest for themselves. As winter approaches, the temptation is to kind of let the gardens wither back into the ground and have Mother Nature take care of it all. However, most professional garden experts recommend that you clean up the spent garden debris to help diminish the occurrence of fungal disease. Worst case scenario would have those debris piles becoming a breeding ground for insects. Yes, there are bugs in the winter!
The suggestion is to deep plow that debris and get down to the roots. When roots are exposed to freezing temperatures there is a greater chance of reducing the emergence of plant pests. You could plant what is referred to as a “cover crop.” This would be something like rye grain, wheat or crimson clover. These plants will reduce erosion and provide nutrients for the soil. When these plants mature just plow them over about six weeks before you start the spring planting. We can all agree that it’s a lot of work to keep a garden growing and healthy but there are plenty of rewards to be had from all that work.
In terms of that hard work, you don’t have to do it alone. You can contract with Junk King of Raleigh to help with all the yard waste removal. While it is true that the bulk of what Junk King takes away is actually “junk” that doesn’t stop them from hauling off dirt, sod, fallen tree limbs, shrubs and leaves. In fact, there isn’t much that Junk King won’t haul away.
As a backyard gardener you might have the tendency to rake debris into piles. Nothing wrong with that. But when you hire Junk King Raleigh know that they can do all the work. In other words, if something has fallen in your yard, leave it where it fell and Junk King will take it from there!
Take note that all the work Junk King can do in your backyard doesn’t have to stop there. Why not take full advantage of their removal appointment by finally getting rid of some of the junk you’ve been hanging onto over the years? This will be all that useless stuff taking up valuable space in your garage, basement, attic and closet. Surely you could find plenty of other items that would make a perfect companion for your yard waste.
After Junk King has done their thing, you can focus on making sure the rest of your home and gardens are ready for the winter. Taking time to prepare now will set you up for a safe holiday and great growing season next year.
Take a moment to imagine yourself slipping into a soothing hot tub right now. Chances are you’re reading this post from your desktop, laptop or iPad: none of those devices should be anywhere near a hot tub! A hot tub soak is for a moment of going “off the grid.” But here you are chained to your computer wishing you could be in a hot tub. Sorry, to plant that image in your mind but maybe it will just inspire you into action. This is meant for all those folks who have an old, broken down hot tub in their backyards and want inspiration to get rid of that eyesore. Consider the benefits of a hot tub.
The three basic components of a hot tub soak are heat, buoyancy and massage. Any one of those elements would be a benefit but when you combine all three at once you’re getting a powerful therapeutic punch. On the average 1 in 3 Americans suffer from some level of arthritis. A hot tub provides relaxation for the muscle joints and sooths pain especially after a hard day of stressful writing.
Another common ailment is insomnia which can impact around 75% of Americans at one point in their lives. The conventional wisdom is that a 15 minute soak in a 103 degree tub before going to bed will provide the kind of substantive relaxation that increases the chances of easily drifting off the sleep. That’s a lot better than popping a pill which will have you feeling groggy all the next morning.
Among the most startling benefits of consistent hot tub use is the positive effect is has on people suffering from Type 2 Diabetes. According to a recent report, patients who soaked for a soothing 30 minutes per day were shown to have a 13% decrease in blood sugar levels. That translated into improved sleep and a greater sense of overall well-being. Hot tub use has also been shown to reduce blood pressure, headaches and accelerates the general healing process. How can you not live with a hot tub?
This brings us back to the issue of the old hot tub you have in your yard. If you’re convinced that it’s time for a new and improved model then you’ll first have to get rid of the old one. That’s where hiring Junk King Raleigh will be a huge help. Junk King is a business of professional junk haulers. While they make short work of loading up old furniture, e-waste and appliances onto the back of their truck they can also easily tackle the dismantling of a hot tub. No matter how cumbersome or heavy the pieces of a hot tub are, the Junk King Raleigh crew will have no trouble getting it onto the back of their truck. The sooner you get rid of that old tub the quicker you can bring in the new one and let the healing begin!
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.

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.
