Sacramento Junk Pick Up

What’s more fun that a classic “there’s something you don’t see every day” moment? Recently some Sacramento residents were treated to a real doozy! Two zebras broke away from their handlers and went on a wild rampage through the Sacramento suburbs. One ended up chilling out in a pool and the other was picked up by the side of the road. Imagine you’re the 911 operator getting that call: “I just saw a zebra!” We’ve all had one of those “there’s something you don’t see every day moments” but what about the stuff you can’t avoid seeing every day? This is the stuff that causes you to grind your teeth and roll your eyes. We’re talking about all that useless junk you have laying around your house. Isn’t it time you called up a Sacramento junk pick up company and get rid of all that rubbish once and for all?

Take an inventory of your junk. Start with your favorite “dumping ground.” For some folks this is the garage. For others it is the basement or attic. And then there are those who have no choice but to cram their junk into closets and under beds. This indoor junk can come in many forms. There could be all kinds of ratty sofas and easy chairs that have seen better days. There could be rugs, drapes and even an old mattress collecting dust in a corner. What about all those broken kitchen appliances?  They’ve long since been replaced but the old ones are rusting away. That long list of junk can be gone when you bring on a professional Sacramento junk pick up crew.

Here’s the other thing to keep in mind. If you’ve got junk sitting around your house it’s probably because it’s too heavy for you to remove or you don’t have a truck big enough to haul it away in. Add to that the fact that you simply don’t even know where to take it and you can see why you should be calling in the junk hauling pros!

Hiring an experienced junk hauling team is just like hiring any other type of worker to help you around the house. If you need a plumber, you’ll call them up, they’ll come out to assess the situation, give you an estimate and, if you agree, they’ll do the job.  The same process applies to junk haulers. They’ll need to come out and see exactly what you want carted away and provide you with an estimate of the cost. There should be no surprises when they return to do the job. And they should also be working on your schedule. That means not keeping you waiting all day like the cable company does!

After all that junk is cleared away, you’ll be getting a large part of your house back. Maybe you’ve already got plans to turn the garage into a screening room or refinishing the basement as an arts and craft work station. With all that junk gone, you’ll be amazed at how much space you’ve reclaimed. And that’s something you don’t see every day!

Sacramento Foreclosure Clean Out

A foreclosed home can leave behind a trail of trash. If someone has abandoned a foreclosed home the chances are that they have left behind piles of trash and unused junk. As a Sacramento Real Estate agent, your new mission is to turn around that foreclosed home and put it back on the marketplace. You have to ask yourself: dumpster or junk hauler?

Consider the realities of picking the dumpster option. You’ll need to find a dumpster company and make sure you have the proper permits to have the dumpster placed on the street or driveway. Hopefully, there will be room! Once the dumpster is dropped off, you then have to arrange for a group of workers to come and haul out all the trash from the foreclosed home. This means you will essentially be hiring these workers. What if one of them gets hurt on the job? Will this make you, as their employer, responsible? And how do you know that the day workers you’re finding are capable of doing the job in the first place? Do you really want those kinds of headaches?

Depending on the amount of junk left behind by the previous homeowner, this could be an all day affair. Think about what might happen if the dumpster fills up but you still have garbage left behind? This is going to mean arranging for a pick up of the full dumpster and getting an empty one dropped off. Then you’ll have to rehire the work crew all over again. Talk about a hassle.

Now think about the other choice of bringing in a professional, locally owned Sacramento foreclosure clean out specialist. One call will have a supervisor out to inspect the site of the foreclosed home. With that single visit they’ll be able to determine the amount of the service, the time needed to complete the job and when to schedule the assignment. The next time you’ll see the junk hauling crew, they’ll be showing up at the appointed hour to remove everything in the foreclosed home you’ve decided you want taken away. This can include any bulky furniture, mattresses, kitchen appliances, rugs, carpeting, and all manner of trash.

Because you’re using a professional service, they’re going to know how to get the job done right in one trip. They will also be bonded, licensed and insured.  By hiring an experienced foreclosure clean out crew you really are looking at three phone calls; the first to set up the estimate appointment, the second to let you know the work crew is on the way and the third when the job is done. The clear choice should be a locally operated Sacramento foreclosure clean out crew. The bottom line is that for a job this big you need to bring in the professional junk haulers!
