Sacramento Refrigerator Disposal – take care of that old fridge

Could you ever imagine a world where your refrigerator could send you to jail? Actually, that might not be too far from the truth. Sacramento, like many other cities around the country, has adopted strict laws when it comes to the handling of old refrigerators. If you have a refrigerator on your property that is not being used for its intended purpose of storing food then you need to safeguard that appliance. This will mean either putting a secure lock on the door or removing the door all together. If you don’t do that, you could be ticketed and fined. Ignore paying those fines and a bench warrant could be sworn out for your arrest. That is obviously an extreme case, but don’t think an eager prosecutor wouldn’t love to score points with the public by tossing the book at someone who scoffs at the safe refrigerator laws. Obviously, the best choice you have is to get rid of that old refrigerator all together. You can easily accomplish that by calling in the services of a Sacramento refrigerator disposal team like Junk King.

A common occurrence on many a Christmas morning is finding children having more fun playing with the boxes their presents came in then the actual presents themselves. Kids like to crawl into things and imagine them to be a spaceship, submarine or truck. Nothing wrong with that. But there is something wrong if those kids crawl into a space that traps them. It only took a handful of incidents involving children getting trapped in abandoned refrigerators to have state legislators spring into action. You might think, “Hey, I don’t have any kids, so I can still put this old fridge out in the yard.” Wrong assumption! What about all the kids in your neighborhood? Don’t you think they are curious? Won’t a big “box” like a fridge be too tempting of a playground for them? Why take the chance? The minute you replace your old refrigerator is the same minute you should be calling up a refrigerator disposal company.

If you’re like most savvy shoppers, you’re going to do your homework when it comes to buying that new fridge. You’ll shop around for the best bargain and make sure that new icebox is going to delivery everything you want it to. Nothing wrong with taking the time to make sure you’re getting the best deal because, if done right, this new fridge should last you at least five years. That’s a major investment. But for all of that shopping work, it will take you just one phone call to make sure your old fridge is going to be hauled away on the same day that the new one arrives. If done right, you can simply place all the food in your current fridge and freezer into a cooler. The junk haulers show up and take it away. Then your new fridge arrives within the hour and you get to pack it up with the food in the cooler. No one will be the wiser!

Sacramento TV Disposal – Time to Get Rid of the Old Set

Admit it; hasn’t there been a time when you’ve wanted to kick out the screen of your television? This “issue” might have come up as your home team blew the big game or during a heated political debate. It could even come as the result of too much exposure to a certain singing purple dinosaur! Most of us have those television kicking fantasies, but fortunately we don’t act on them. That doesn’t mean we don’t get rid of our televisions and replace them with new models.

One problem with buying a new TV is what to do with the old television. If you’re getting a new big screen, it’s safe bet that the same delivery men who are bringing your television in won’t be taking away the old set. It’s just not their job. That’s why you should plan ahead by booking a locally based Sacramento TV disposal crew like Junk King. That last thing you want is to have the view of your new HD set be blocked by your old boxy television set.

Clearly, if you’re buying a small screen television, you might be bringing it home in the back of your SUV. However, when it comes to televisions, we all know bigger really is better. And with the prices falling every day, there has never been a better time to get a bargain on a big screen television. There’s also the option of going high definition. This is the wave of the future and if you’re going HD, it stands to reason that you’ll want a decent sized screen.

Today, the key word with televisions is flat screen. Thanks to advancements in technology, TV screens are mounted on our walls like framed paintings. This is a project that shouldn’t be left to just any handyman, but instead to an experienced installer. Do you want to take a chance that your brand new HD flat screen could end up crashing to the floor? Absolutely not. Well, if you know the importance of hiring a professional to hang your TV then you should know the value of having a professional TV disposal crew to get rid of your old set.

A lot of the components in from your old television can actually be recycled. Would you know where the nearest electronic recycling facility is in your neighborhood? You might have to drive a little distance outside of Sacramento to get to the right place. That’s probably not how you want to spend your weekend, especially if you’ve just gotten a new big screen television mounted on your wall! That’s the time for football, not trips to the recycling center. By hiring an experience TV disposal company like Junk King Sacramento, you won’t have to waste any time. If you believe in the philosophy of the right tool for the right job then you’ll see that hiring the right professional for the job is the way to go. That’s why when you shop around for the best deal on your new television; you should also be shopping around on the best deal for TV disposal of your old set. It’s going to take all the hassle out making the big switch.
