Furniture Donations Pickup in Sacramento

It was a very good year for the Sacramento-based Raley’s grocery stores. So good in fact that they got into the giving spirit of the holiday by donating over 100,000 pounds of turkey, chicken and ham to needy families all throughout the region. Each of the 120 stores in the expansive Raley’s chain donated $1,000 in meat products to directly benefit the food banks in the local communities. The result is that many families had the opportunity to share wonderful holiday meal with their loved ones.

You really don’t have to go far to find more examples of local Sacramento businesses giving back to their communities this time of year. Truth be told, many of those same businesses continue their charitable efforts throughout the entire year. Junk King Sacramento is one of those businesses and they’re  trying to help folks in a very practical manner. Whenever Junk King is hired by a homeowner or business to clean up the clutter and remove junk they’ll sort through whatever they collect to see if there is something that can be of use to a charity. It might be a discarded sofa or love seat that needs new upholstery or an old fridge that needs a little TLC to get running again. Whatever the item, Junk King will make sure it gets dropped off at the proper charity facility.

There are plenty of local charities who are in the business of fixing things up not only to give away to those in need but to provide jobs for able workers. You didn’t think your old sofa could do so much did you? When Junk King does the picking up it sure can! Don’t worry about which charity to give to; Junk King does all the legwork. Even if they have to make several stops to clear out their loaded truck so be it. They’ve got junk removal down to a science!

This is the perfect time of year to get rid of all your clutter. As you head into 2013, you really don’t want to be carrying any useless stuff with you. This would include any piece of bulky equipment or furniture that you’re never going to use again. Doesn’t it make sense to get rid of that stuff once and for all? Even if you’re just clearing out a corner in the family room you can still make better use of that space with a plant or chair. In some cases, there have been homeowners who were able to clear out enough junk to set up a guest room or home office. What can you do with space like that? Let Junk King Sacramento show you the way and feel good about the donations you’ll be making to help those in need.

Sacramento Christmas Tree and Holiday Junk Removal

Here in the U.S., the day after Christmas is a lot like the day after Thanksgiving only in reverse. Instead of shoppers looking for bargains, a lot of folks are returning presents. That doesn’t mean there won’t be any sales to be had. In fact, retailers might just save the best prices for the end of the year. In England, the day after Christmas is known as Boxing Day. Tradition holds that this is the day when the Lords of the manor would give their servants presents or a Christmas box. It has evolved into a national holiday in Great Britain which makes for a bonus day after Christmas for all government workers.

There is something else you have to think about on Boxing Day and that would be the big clean up from Christmas morning. Depending on the size of the family and how generous Santa was, there could be heaping mounds of boxes, gift-wrap and other items destined for the trash heap. You might need to make room for the new big screen HDTV or microwave oven. There could also be all manner of vacuum cleaners, computers, games and sporting equipment that have been replaced. You don’t need to hold onto all the junk. Why not be proactive about cleaning up and schedule an appointment with Junk King Sacramento?

Then there is the issue of the Christmas tree. At some point, that tree is coming down and it’s going to be dragged out of the house leaving a trail of pine needles in its wake. Hopefully, you’ll make it out to the curb in time for a garbage pickup. If not, you’re going to be stuck with the tree. There’s a better way for the tree removal and the big box toss out; that would be hiring Junk King for the job.

Junk King Sacramento has the crew and the junk to handle any type of junk removal assignment no matter how big or small. You don’t have to take your tree down right away but when it’s ready to be carted off, Junk King will work around your schedule. On the same removal appointment, they can load up all the rest of your holiday trash. This is the most effective approach to junk removal and the most cost efficient. That’s because Junk King will only charge you by the volume of space your junk takes up on their truck. There won’t be any additional labor costs or dumping fees. You’ll enjoy your post holiday celebrations a lot more with Junk King on stand-by!
