Declutter to Start Your Retirement in Richmond, VA

Many retirements kick off with a great party. After all, you have plenty to celebrate, right? You’ve worked most of your life and now it’s time to take it easy. That means spending more of your days with family and friends. It can also mean pursuing those hobbies you’ve been putting off for all those many work years. Obviously, you’ll be spending a lot more time around the house and you might start noticing things that never bothered you before. Namely, all the junk you’ve collected over the years. This doesn’t mean you’re living in squalor. But the moment you decide something has no more use, it becomes junk. When that happens, it is time to call in Junk King. They’ll make your declutter chore a thing of beauty.

The average junk removal session with Junk King can be handled by the two-man moving crew that will be dispatched to your property. This is a team who has experience in lifting heavy objects. They also know how to take something apart in order to get it on back of the truck. You don’t want to waste any of your retirement with junk removal. The team from Junk King is going to get in and get out fast. They’ll even sweep up behind themselves!

Before the crew shows up, you have to decide all the things you want taken away. The final cost will be presented to you once the crew has had a chance to size up all that junk for themselves. They’ll be estimating how much space your junk is going to occupy on the back of the truck. This is a price based on volume and not weight. Any company who wants to charge by the pound is not someone you want to work with!

Along with their fast removal, Junk King is also going to treat your junk right when it comes to disposal. Actually, they won’t so much “dispose” of your junk as try to find it another home. That could be with a charity that specializes in refurbishing furniture and appliances. It could also be with a recycling center that can repurpose raw materials. Turning your home declutter task to Junk King is a smart way to kick off your retirement.

Hit Zero Waste with Junk King Central Virginia

Virginia Commonwealth University has set its sights on becoming a zero waste campus. They hope to achieve that goal by doing things like providing containers for organic materials around all the eating areas. That will make for some great compost. They also plan to make smarter choices about transportation options and increasing recycling across the campus by up to 75%. The hope is that the efforts will not only result in a greener campus but it will inspire other institutions to adopt the same measures.

If you would like to get to zero waste around your home, then you’ll want to partner up with Junk King. This is the company who has been doing things the “green way” ever since they began their operations. For every junk removal appointment, Junk King provides a two-man moving crew. This is the team who is going to be doing all the heavy lifting for you. You don’t have to move anything from your home. Just leave it all right where it is.

That same Junk King crew will also be on the lookout for any item from your junk pile that can be repurposed. Junk King has set up partnerships with several recycling centers and charities around the Central Virginia area.

Don’t worry about paying extra for the recycling drop offs. In fact, Junk King avoids hefty dumping fees every time they divert junk from a landfill. They are happy to pass those savings onto you.

Junk King determines its rates based on volume. When the crew sizes up all your stuff, they’ll present you with an estimate that reflects how much space it will fill on the truck. It could be one-half, one third or the entire truck bed. This is a price that includes all the labor whether they are at your home for a few minutes or a few hours. Even if you’re tackling a hoarder type of cleanup, you’re still going to be charged by the truckload. Once you agree to the price, the crew will get to work and that fee is locked down. Getting to zero waste around your home is easy when you bring in Junk King.
