Richmond Junk Hauling

As the coming Presidential election cycle begins to heat up for the summer, all eyes will be looking towards Virginia. Most analysts feel that Virginia belongs on the list of “must win”  states that a candidate will need in order to become our next president. That means we should all be bracing for a lot of television ads, campaign events and door-to-door politicking. Of course, we can choose to ignore all of that and wait until November rolls around. After all, don’t you have more important (fun) things to do this summer? What is on your summer to-do list?

Topping that list for most folks is a vacation of some sort. Even if you don’t get into a plane, there is still plenty to do within a several mile radius of Richmond. Between the gorgeous beaches, serene mountains and dozens of weekend festivals you’ll find something to appeal to everyone’s taste in your family.

Aside from relaxing on a vacation, you might also have a home makeover item on your summer to-do list. Unlike the popular TV show, you probably won’t be bulldozing your home and building a new one in seven days! For most folks, the summer home projects are on a smaller scale like replanting a garden or a complete cleaning. That cleaning usually happens if you’ve put off your big spring cleaning project, which is completely understandable. But before packing up for the vacation you might consider finally getting rid of all the clutter in your life. You’ll find help with that project by hiring a professional junk hauling crew, like Junk King Richmond, who will be up to the task.

After you make an appointment with Junk King Richmond, you’ll want to assess your stuff. This means taking a little walking tour through your home. Yes, it’s time to peer into closets, down the basement, up the attic and out in the garage. The goal is to gather as much useless junk as you can for the junk haulers to take away. Don’t be put off by that word “gather.” What’s great about hiring professional junk haulers is that they will be able to do all the heavy lifting. Sure, you can pile all your junk onto your driveway but why do that when your junk hauling team will remove it for you. All you have to do is point to what you want taken out of your home.

This is a golden opportunity to say good-bye to all that old furniture, that lumpy mattress, the kitchen appliances and those parts from a long abandoned “fixer upper” project. This junk disposal is something that the whole family can participate in. Even the kids can toss out stuff they’ve been hanging onto that they never intend to use like old sports equipment or even the occasional row boat or kayak. Once your house is clear of all that clutter, you’ll be breathing a sigh of relief and that’s the best time to go on vacation: Stress free!

Richmond VA Junk Removal

The Virginia Historical Society recently indulged in a one-of-a-kind treat: They opened a time capsule that had been sealed for 100 years. As you might imagine, a time capsule locked away in the South would have mementos that invoked the struggles of the Civil War. Among the 100 items stored in the capsule were wartime Confederate documents, the Great Seal of the Confederacy and other postwar keepsakes. There were blueprints for the Confederate Memorial Institute which ultimately became home for the historical society itself. For a real glimpse into the past, there were many random photographs of the local residents also included. These were portraits taken at a time when getting your picture taken was a major event.

So, what about your home? Suppose it was sealed up today and turned into a time capsule? What would folks discover 100 years from now when they opened up that home again? Now, you can’t cheat and clean up the house: It’s being sealed today! Would you be embarrassed by all the junk they might find? Don’t worry. You wouldn’t be alone in that regard. We all have a tendency to hold onto things long after they’ve served their purpose. For some, this might just mean that one drawer or cabinet that is stuffed to the brim with receipts, menus and anything else that can be shoved away out of sight. Moving beyond the kitchen drawers, there are other “collectors” who have turned closets into their private storage lockers. Every time the door is opened onto one of these vaults, the owner is met with an avalanche of junk.

As the closets are filled the need for more space increases. Here is when we expand out into spare rooms, basements, attics and garages. Before long, your home really has become a time capsule but in a bad way. You’re just holding onto junk because you don’t have anything better to do with it. What about getting rid of it once and for all? Before you decry, “That’s impossible!” consider these two words: Junk King.

What’s great about hiring Junk King is that you don’t have to do any work beyond pointing to all the stuff you want removed. Junk King richmond will handle the test. Before you know it, you’ll be able to reclaim your closets, spare rooms and garages for more practical use. Don’t let your home become a time capsule of junk!
