When You Need Furniture Removal for Property Managers and Landlords

furniture removal services downtown san diego

Property management can be a demanding job. 

Being a landlord or commercial property manager requires a broad and varied skill set to accomplish the wide range of tasks, duties, and responsibilities of the role. And what are these?

Here’s a short list:

  • Determine the rental price.
  • Advertise rental vacancies.
  • Screen and approve tenants.
  • Prepare and enforce a lease agreement.
  • Handle tenant complaints and issues.
  • Collect and adjust the rent.
  • Take care of property maintenance and repairs.
  • Prepare vacant units for rental.

These last two items in particular can require the help of outside resources and vendors. This is especially true when there are items to be cleaned out or removed, such as furniture removal

This is why Junk King San Diego Downtown specializes in furniture removal.

Need Old Furniture Removal? Who Can You Call?

It doesn’t matter if the properties you manage are in National City, Chula Vista, Imperial Beach, Coronado, or even right in Downtown San Diego, there are times when you have to remove things from them.

And some things, such as old office furniture, can be next to impossible to remove on your own. 

If you have the time and the inclination, you could possibly sell or donate old furniture that has been abandoned but is still in good condition. Not only is this a great way to ensure that these older pieces have a longer serviceable life, but it can benefit you, as well.

However, if you decide that selling or donating those old office furniture pieces are not viable options, you will still find that removing them is a challenge. If they are large pieces, that’s a removal project that is far more than most people can or want to do by themselves.

Fortunately, furniture removal for property managers and landlords does not have to be a DIY chore.

Hiring a reliable and professional firm such as Junk King San Diego Downtown to do all the heavy lifting for you and haul them all away is a far more preferable option. In fact, opting for an expert and dependable junk hauling service is a smart choice for any kind of commercial junk, waste, or debris removal.

Having Junk King San Diego Downtown come and remove your old office furniture also makes good sense because there’s really no easy way to get rid of it yourself. And our Junk King team will provide you with efficient, safe, and eco-friendly furniture removal service. That simply means that you can feel good about disposal of those old furniture items.

At Junk King San Diego Downtown, we always make sure that your old furniture items end up in the right place. Depending on the overall condition and useability of the piece, that could be as a donation to a local non-profit group, or a recycling facility, which will ensure that your old furniture items are disposed of in an eco-friendly way.


New call-to-action

Yes, Green Furniture Removal is a Thing

With the rise of the coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent move by many organizations to shut down offices and transition to a remote workforce, much has changed for commercial property managers and landlords.

However, it’s a mixed bag when it comes to leasing, vacancies, and prospects on the post-COVID horizon. 

According to a recent news story,

“Downtown is currently home to 12.3 million square feet of office space. More than 19 percent of the inventory is vacant, according to data supplied by commercial brokerage Jones Lang LaSalle. When factoring in all of the space currently being offered for lease, including inventory under construction and sublease opportunities, there is nearly 5 million square feet of office space available for the taking — or more than 40 percent of downtown’s available stock.”

As some firms decide to stay with their new work paradigm of less leased space and more remote workers, properties will need to be cleared out and made ready for new tenants.

Yet, as new office space comes available because of the recent surge in construction, many businesses that relocate to these new facilities will opt to leave their old furniture behind. 

All of which points to an ongoing and possibly increasing need for commercial junk removal, cleanouts, and furniture removal. And almost none of this junk material has to end up in our local landfills. 

Which is one of the core values of the Junk King corporate vision and mission. 

When it comes to furniture removal, reuse and recycling should be primary options. Resume is simply finding a new home for old furniture so that it doesn’t end up being thrown out. And recycling, of course, is taking old furniture and using its components to make new goods that can be sold again. 

And recycling is definitely a viable option because so much of what goes into office furniture is recyclable. 

While there can be non-reusable materials inside of some furniture pieces, the good news is that most furniture can be recycled most of the time. However, the default choice of too many business owners, property managers, and landlords is to simply have old furniture (and other items) hauled off to a landfill.

But adding to the few remaining – and rapidly filling – local landfills isn’t really the best choice.

So, why do we believe so strongly in the benefits of recycling your old furniture?

  • Recycling conserves limited natural resources, which is critical as populations increase
  • Recycling can conserve up to 95 percent of the water used to produce many materials
  • Recycling prevents waste from going into the ground (and groundwater) and our oceans
  • It helps protect our forests, which, in turn, helps to reduce CO2 emissions
  • It lowers our use of fossil fuel energy, further reducing CO2 emissions

Whether it’s simply a matter of needing to downsize and getting rid of some office furniture, or you must replace old residential furniture in a rental property, recycling these pieces is really the best option.

Calling Junk King San Diego Downtown as a cost saving measure

Pricing structures vary among different junk hauling companies as do the prices themselves.

For example, some firms will charge you by the total weight of your load, which means you will be paying far more for heavy pieces than for the same number of much lighter pieces. 

Not with Junk King. We only charge for the amount of space your furniture and other items take up in our trucks. In fact, when it comes to office furniture removal costs, we make pricing both fair and easy.

We also make it easy to get an estimate.

At Junk King we offer free, no-obligation estimates as a part of our service. And not only will our expert and courteous team show up on time at your property, but they will also provide you with a free written estimate.

House Cleanouts and Junk Removal Services in San Diego

house and property cleanout services in downtown san diego

The United States has one of the most mobile populations in the world.

In fact, according to the United States Census Bureau, the average person in America will move as many as 11.7 times in their life. There are a variety of reasons why people relocate, but here are the main motivators:

  • 48 percent of moves relate directly to the housing
  • 30.3 percent of moves are family-related
  • 19.4 percent of relocations have to do with a job change
  • 2.3 percent of moves fall into “other”

While we have no exact figures for how many folks move from their homes in San Diego each year, it’s certainly quite a few. With an estimated population of more than 1,420,000 the city boasts approximately 500,000 housing units. 

So, if even just one percent of these households vacate each year, that’s over 5,000 move outs, which means almost 15 empty houses a day, on average.

That’s a vast number of house cleanouts and junk removal that needs to be done!

When You Need a House Cleanout and Junk Removal Services

The reasons for a house cleanout are numerous, but the most common scenario is a simple move out from one house to another. Whether it’s the prior homeowner that takes care of it or their real estate agent, a house cleanout is often needed before the house either goes on the market or is vacated.

At other times, a house cleanout can be the result of a foreclosure. Fortunately, the number of foreclosures has decreased dramatically since the infamous housing crash of 2008. Unfortunately, they still occur, even in San Diego.

According to a recent article from Norada Real Estate,

“The foreclosure rate in San Diego County is below the national and California average. There were 2,744 foreclosure filings in 2019 in San Diego County, said Attom Data Solutions, which includes default notices, scheduled auctions, and bank repossessions.

That’s down from 3,390 in 2018 and 4,025 in 2017. It is the lowest number of foreclosure filings for San Diego County in more than a decade, and a sharp contrast to the 49,125 foreclosure filings in 2009.”

Most, if not all, homes that go into foreclosure end up being vacated by the previous owners. And, in many cases, they need to be cleaned thoroughly and – in some cases – will need a substantial amount of junk removal, as well.

This is why Junk King San Diego specializes in house cleanouts along with other junk removal services.

Other situations involve rental homes.

As we noted earlier here, people are constantly on the move. In fact, according to the Census Bureau, almost 13 percent of renters move annually.

Property managers throughout the city of San Diego are familiar with the need to keep their properties leased as much as possible. The challenge is in the transition process between a tenant leaving and having the house ready for a new tenant as soon as possible.

But the problem is that these vacated properties cannot be leased again until any junk is removed and the property is cleaned. Every day a rental property sits unoccupied and full of junk is time that goes by without collecting rent.

And property managers have far more important and productive tasks on their plates than taking care of junk removal and house cleanouts!

In these scenarios, a quick call to Junk King San Diego means being able to outsource this work to a reputable, professional hauling company. And the advantages of this option far outweigh the perceived benefits of doing it yourself.

With Junk King on the job, you can have confidence and the peace of mind comes with knowing we will do the job right and do it quickly. And the cost is often far less than doing it yourself or with your own staff.

Junk King San Diego Makes House Cleanouts a Green Process

It’s certainly easy enough for a couple of guys with a truck to load up junk, old furniture, maybe an abandoned appliance or two, and haul all this to the landfill. 

Easy, but not good.

For starters, putting anything into our landfills should be treated as a “last resort” option. There are three major landfills open in San Diego County, only one city-owned and operated landfill and that is the Miramar Landfill. And it is filling faster than projected.

According a story from The San Diego Union-Tribune,

“Mayor Kevin Faulconer announced in 2015 that the projected life of the city’s main dump had been extended from 2022 to 2030 thanks to new city recycling policies, trash compaction methods and other innovations.

But recently city officials launched an environmental analysis of the potential impacts of increasing the height of the 1,400-acre dump from 485 feet above sea level now to 510 feet above sea level.

A vertical expansion is the city’s only option. The last possible horizontal expansion of the landfill, into the western portion of the site, took place in 2008.”

And, as recently as May 2021, San Diego City Councilman Joe LaCava noted that the “Miramar landfill is going to reach capacity by 2025.”

At Junk King San Diego, we treat landfills as a “last resort” and work hard to recycle and reuse as much of everything we pick up as possible.

In fact, Junk King has been recognized as North America’s greenest junk removal service and we are proud to have pioneered recycling-based junk removal back in 2005. We started out as being green then and have been going greener ever since.

One of the ways we do this is to sort every job for metals, e-waste, paper, household goods, textiles, furniture, and appliances, in our recycling warehouses.

But “being green” also means we donate, repurpose, and reuse as much as we can from everything we pick up from clothing, toys, baby cribs, cardboard, and strollers to office furniture, electronics, and supplies.

In fact, we recycle up to 65 percent of every job we collect.

Junk King San Diego is committed to continue leading the way to help keep our planet and our city clean, green, and beautiful for generations to come.

Rock And Roll With Construction Debris Removal In Downtown San Diego

New construction involves some amount of excavation and foundation building. And remodels, major renovations, additions, or complete replacements of existing structures, means demolition or deconstruction.

And all these result in debris and rubble. This means moving rock and other debris onto a truck or into a dumpster, and then rolling away to dispose of it all.

Rock and roll.

The problem is that construction debris removal never quite feels like a concert, and the thought of cleaning up your job site over and over during a project probably isn’t “music to your ears.”

Yet, no matter whether your job site is in Coronado, Imperial Beach, National City, Chula Vista, or in downtown San Diego, you’re going to have construction debris that needs to be cleared out and removed.

So, the question you should ask is if there’s another cost-effective and efficient method for doing that?

Thinking About Outsourcing Your Construction Debris Removal Function

Construction waste disposal is a major function on almost every construction project. From relatively simple residential remodels to multi-million dollar commercial projects, they all produce large amounts of waste, debris, and trash. 

And there are several reasons that this accumulation of waste and debris must be removed efficiently and cost-effectively.

While it differs with every location, there can also be legal requirements as well as common safety considerations when it comes to jobsite debris and waste removal. For example, some of the materials used, or discarded during demolition, are considered hazardous materials by various state and federal agencies. 

And accumulated debris on a job site is potentially dangerous and represents a safety hazard.

Unfortunately, the work of clearing, loading, and hauling the debris collected on a job site is not high on the priority list for many contractors and subcontractors. It’s not that they underestimate the importance and necessity of the task, but it’s not “productive” work or their crew. In other words, the time and money spent disposing of construction debris doesn’t generate revenue for them.

And it is often difficult and dangerous work.

Hauling mounds of rubble or broken slabs of concrete, for example, can be challenging. Then there are instances when debris contains fiberglass or lead-based paints, for example. These substances, as well as many others, represent potential health risks for those tasked with disposing of them.

In addition, there are the costs required for dumping fees and fuel, along with the wear and tear, and added mileage on their vehicles.

The good news is that there are options for construction debris removal.

Why You Should Consider Hiring a Professional Team

On one hand, a common approach is to give the work to some local guy with a truck and then hope that it gets done right and doesn’t take too long. The problem is that this option can also involve potential liability issues when using some “guy with a truck“.

If something bad happens, that approach could end up costing you a great deal more in terms of both time and money. There are safety issues, potential for damage or theft, and other legal risks to take into consideration. Ultimately, “saving some money” could end up costing you far more than you anticipated.

This is why Junk King San Diego Downtown specializes in construction debris removal.

The better option is to outsource your construction waste removal and disposal to a reputable company like Junk King. By hiring professionals, you can rest assured that your construction waste will be handled safely, quickly, and properly.

And because much of construction waste can be recycled, like concrete, for example, you can be assured that your construction debris will be put to the best use possible.

Junk King can remove your construction waste and debris safely, efficiently, and in an eco-friendly manner so you don’t need to deal with the disposal of debris from your project. Whether you need our services several times during a large construction project or just once after a smaller job is complete, our hauling professionals can get construction debris out of your way so that you can get on with the job.

All of which is why the services of a professional construction debris removal firm like Junk King San Diego Downtown should be your outsourcing solution.

Sobering Reasons for Diligent Construction Debris Removal

Work can be a killer. 

In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 5,333 workers died on the job in 2019. That added up to, on average, more than 100 worker fatalities a week or about 15 deaths every day. And close to 20 percent of all worker fatalities in private industry in 2019 were in construction. These tragic deaths accounted for one in five worker deaths that year.

More often than not, many of these deaths could have been avoided or prevented.

For example, the following were listed as the top 10 most frequently cited standards violations by the Federal OSHA from October 1, 2019, through September 30, 2020:

  • Fall Protection, construction
  • Hazard Communication Standard, general industry
  • Respiratory Protection, general industry
  • Scaffolding, general requirements, construction
  • Ladders, construction
  • Control of Hazardous Energy (lockout/tagout), general industry
  • Powered Industrial Trucks, general industry
  • Fall Protection–Training Requirements
  • Eye and Face Protection
  • Machinery and Machine Guarding, general requirements 

It’s noteworthy that three of the ten items were specifically in the construction industry: Fall protection, scaffolding, and ladders. 

This is significant since falls are the number one killer of construction workers on the job.

In fact, the leading causes of construction deaths has become commonly known as The “Fatal Four” (falls, struck by equipment, caught in between, and electrocutions) and account for over 60 percent of all construction-related deaths.

But falls on a job site account for 33 percent of all construction deaths. This means that eliminating falls in construction would save more than 300 lives every year. And one way to help prevent them is by ensuring that debris on construction sites is removed frequently and repeatedly to eliminate this tripping hazard.

Construction sites are often relatively “high risk” work environments already. Allowing for debris and waste materials to clutter a site or pile up and create trip-and-fall hazards is irresponsible at best. And it could end up becoming tragic unfortunately. 

Which is one of the reasons Junk King San Diego Downtown specializes in construction debris removal. We are there to take the load off you – both literally and figuratively – so you can focus on doing what you do best: construction, not junk removal. 

The Premier Source for Construction Debris Removal in Downtown San Diego

When it comes to cleaning up a construction site, you probably already know that getting rid of all the debris and waste materials is going to be a huge task. And it’s quite likely that there are heavy items that need to be hauled from the site. In addition, it’s important that your crew and your equipment remain safe and intact throughout the process.

That’s because the debris can often be potentially hazardous to remove, load, and dispose of. Yet, it is a critical task to make sure that your job site is as clean and free of debris as possible before the work can be completed. This is simply a safety issue in addition to being a dreaded “housekeeping” task. 

No one wants to trip over piles of debris, waste, cut-offs, or broken materials. 

Construction waste removal and disposal can be particularly challenging for a variety of reasons, but it is almost always both physically and financially draining on a construction crew.  The work can be difficult, and the time taken from production work on a project is time lost. However, the drain can be minimized significantly by outsourcing this task.

And a professional construction debris removal service such as Junk King San Diego Downtown can be a great choice, especially when it comes to removing concrete and masonry rubble, as well as other large items.

Our professional and insured construction debris removal team will show up at your job site and we’ll call 15 to 30 minutes before we arrive. Once we’re there, we’ll provide you a free quote based on how much room we estimate that the material will take up in our truck.

All you need to do is show us your debris piles and we haul your construction waste materials into our junk removal trucks, with no hidden fees.

It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3. You can make an appointment by booking online above or by calling 1.888.888.JUNK (5865).
