Fast Junk Haulers For Richmond

Whenever you move into a new home or apartment, you are starting a new “clock.” From that moment on, everything you bring with you should be considered “old stuff” and everything you buy afterwards would be “new stuff.” There is nothing wrong with having old stuff as long as it is still being used. But when that old stuff has outlived its usefulness, then it’s time to get rid of it fast. That’s when you should hire Junk King Richmond.

What’s the oldest thing in your home that isn’t being used? Whether it is a couch down in the basement or a dresser upstairs, there is no reason to hold onto that stuff because it is just taking up space. If you cleared out your basement of that old furniture, then it could become a kid’s playroom or a home office. It might work as a workout space or a crafting studio. Getting rid of other unwanted furniture throughout the house doesn’t mean you have to replace it with a new piece. Maybe just having some open space would be appreciated.

All that furniture moving needs to happen with two movers. This is who Junk King will be sending over. They want to make sure you’re not straining your back with lifting anything. Besides, if this stuff was easy for your to life and move out, it probably would have happened a while ago. The crew from Junk King can make it all disappear in a matter of minutes.

Beyond the old furniture, what else can you get rid of? Have you gone through your closets lately? This is a big sorting project but one that will be great to undertake. It will mean literally pulling everything out to see what fits, what’s nice and what can go. Just leave all the stuff you want gone in a pile by the close door. When the Junk King crew shows up, they’ll pick it all up right from that spot. What could be easier than that?

One session with the Junk King Richmond junk haulers is going to make a huge positive difference around your home. Ready to schedule them?

How To Organize A Block Party

The end of the summer is a great time to throw a block party. It’s a terrific way to find out how everyone enjoyed their vacations and it gives the kids on the block one last blowout before school starts. To make a block party a success everyone on the block should participate. Here’s how to get it all organized.

Set Up A Contact Sheet

The first step is to set up a contact sheet. This might mean literally going to everyone’s house and getting their email. Instead of trying to coordinate everyone’s schedule for an organizing meeting you can let your neighbors know that everything will be set up by email. Once you have that group, it’s easy to let everyone know what’s going on without having to repeat yourself.

Pick a Date and Time

It would be nice if everyone can attend the party but picking the date and time should be majority rules. It might be that a holiday weekend like Labor Day would be the best. You’ll probably find that a lot of people would prefer Saturday on that weekend. That way they can enjoy the party and enjoy the rest of the weekend, too. It also helps to set a time. This is probably more for the start of the party vs the end. It might be that the party drifts on into the night. Nothing wrong with that!

Delegate Responsibilities

Everyone on the block should bring dishes for a pot luck buffet. It will probably be a good idea to bring a grill out from one of the backyards, too. Depending on the size of the party, you might even want to get two grills working side by side. It’s a safe bet  you’ll have plenty of “grill masters” willing to get the cooking done. But you’ll also need tables, chairs, trashcans and party supple items like cups, plates, napkins, utensils, etc. Fortunately, no one will be far from home and can dash inside to snag a salt shaker if needed.

It is also a good idea to have some activities planned for the kids. Without cars on the street, it might be a great time for some street hockey. Of course, a good old fashion water balloon battle is never a bad idea.

Clean Your Yard Rubbish

Everyone will pitch in to clean up after the party but before the big day, you might want to bring in Junk King Richmond for some yard rubbish removal. After all, you’ll all be looking at each other’s lawns the entire day. Is there anything you have been eager to remove from your yards? The crew from Junk King can make quick work of picking up any kind of yard waste both from nature or from a store. Before your big block party, put Junk King Richmond to work around your property to get it clear of rubbish.
