Hire Junk King To Clear Out An Old Fence

There is an old saying that goes “good fences make good neighbors.” That can only be put into practice if the fence in your backyard is in good condition. Offense is one of those objects that will always be exposed to the elements. You can’t “cover” fence to protected from wind, rain, snow and sun. That only means that after several years of that kind of exposure offense can become worn down. It could also be damaged in a storm. If any one of those scenarios is playing out your backyard, then it might be time to replace your fence. Before that can happen, you will need to have the old fence removed. That is the job that Junk King Salt Lake City was made for!

All or Some

When working on your fence your first decision is whether or not it all has to be removed and replaced or just a section. It won’t matter to Junk King what you need removed. They will happily take away as much of the old fence as needed. This would classify as a type of “disassembly” job. The Junk King teams will have the experience and the tools to get this type of job done.

It is also a task that might take longer than a typical junk removal. It would only take a few minutes to bring an old sofa out of the house and went to the back of the Junk King truck. But when it comes to taking down an old fence the team might have to devote some more time. The good news is that you won’t be paying any extra for the extra labor. It will all be covered in the flat rate that Junk King charges. That flat rate is always based on how everything will fit onto the back of the Junk King truck. One price covers all the labor, transportation and disposal.

If you need to get rid of an old fence, then you need to put the crew from Junk King Salt Lake City on the job.

Hot Tub Disposal Made Easier With These 4 Expert Tips

Do you want to upgrade your hot tub? Use these tips to quickly get rid of your old hot tub without heavy lifting.

Hot tubs are not built to last a lifetime. On average, a quality hot tub can last anywhere between 15 to 20 years, and a low-quality one can last between 5 to 10 years. This also depends on the construction, care, and maintenance.

Whether your hot tub is old or you want to upgrade to a newer high-quality one, you will need the help of good hot tub disposal services to get rid of the old one. Junk removal companies that offer efficient hot tub removal services will make the work quick and stress-free. 

 

What You Need to Know About Hot Tub Disposal

 

Despite how much you repair and maintain your hot tub, it will deteriorate with time, and you will have to replace it. Hot tubs are huge and bulky. They are made up of different materials such as motors, jet bodies, fiberglass, vinyl, wood, acrylic sheets, and more. The materials used also depend on the quality of the tub.

 

Not only is taking apart the hot tub quite tasking, but the materials they are made up of also are not biodegradable. This means getting rid of the material like any other household trash is not good for the environment.

To easily get rid of your old hot tub and ensure that it is well disposed of, it may be ideal to hire a hot tub removal services company near you. These companies are eco-friendly and have enough resources to remove old hot tubs efficiently. They will make your work easier and also save the environment.

Tips on How to Get Rid of Your Hot Tub 

 

Here are some quick tips to follow during hot tub disposal if you plan on tackling this project on your own.

 

  • Disconnect the Tub from the Power Supply

 

Hot tubs are connected to a power supply. To safely remove the hot tub, you should disconnect it from the electrical supply. When preparing your hot tub for removal, you should locate the breaker switch connected inside the circuit box and turn it off. If you have a 110v spa model, you can pull the plug from the wall. If you are not familiar with electrical connections, you can get an electrician to disconnect the hot tub for you safely.

 

  • Connect a Hose to the Drain Valve

 

When preparing for the removal, you should find the drain valve, remove its cover, and connect one end of a horse to it. Place the end of the hose in an appropriate drainage spot. This can be your lawn, garden, or your home’s drainage system. 

When deciding on where to drain the water, it is important to know that, in some areas, it is illegal to drain spa and pool water in drains leading to the ocean. If you want to drain the water through your main drains, it may be ideal to know the laws of your area to avoid legal troubles.
                                                                                                                    

  • Drain the Hot Tub

 

It is impossible to remove a hot tub when it is still full of water. Therefore, you should drain all the water in the tub before you have it hauled off. There are several ways to drain your hot tub. You can drain it using a spigot, a wet and dry vacuum, or a submersible pump.

Depending on the method you use, draining the hot tub can take several minutes or even hours. The pump speed and size of the tub will also determine how long it takes for it to drain.

 

  • Dry the Hot Tub

 

Regardless of the method you use to drain the tub, some water will still remain at the bottom of it. Your hot tub needs to be completely dry before it is removed. To ensure that it is dry, use a wet and dry vacuum cleaner to clean it. 

After draining the remaining water, switch the vac to push mode, place its nozzle on the drain valve to help push the remaining water out of the pipes through the jets.

The Quickest Way To Clear Out Your Toolshed

There are some cleanup jobs around the home that often require outside help. That might be true if you need to hire someone to clean the rain gutters or second floor windows. It would also be true if you want to get rid of rubbish. That rubbish could be piled up in your backyard toolshed at this very moment. Instead of going through another summer fighting your way through the toolshed you might want to schedule an appointment with Junk King Salt Lake City. These are the professional junk haulers who can clear out your toolshed very fast.

Pick What Goes

Before the Junk King team shows up for your schedule appointment, you will want to spend some time in your toolshed picking what will go. The best approach for that is to simply bring everything out of the toolshed and laid out on the lawn. You’ll know right away what you can get rid of and what you want to keep. Remember with Junk King, you will be working with the two-man moving crew and a big truck. That is all you need to get rid of anything from an old barbecue grill to a broken lawnmower. Just think of how much space you can open up your toolshed when you get rid of that old junk.

You can set up your Junk King appointment online or over the phone. The only thing the Junk King asks is that you set aside a two-hour window on a day that works best for your calendar. It won’t take two hours for the Junk King team to load up your rubbish but it could take some of that time to get from one appointment to the next. On the day of your session, the Junk King team will keep in constant contact so you will know exactly what their arrival time will be. That is the kind of customer care that folks really appreciate.

Getting rid of the rubbish from your backyard toolshed is a great job to hand off to Junk King Salt Lake City.
