Coronado, “The Crown City,” is one of the most picturesque locations in all of San Diego County, and its golden beaches attest to its royalty.
Okay, so that may be a bit over-the-top, but no one disagrees that Coronado truly is a spectacularly beautiful community. And, since it was built in 1888, the Hotel del Coronado became one of California’s most sought after seaside destinations.
According to the official San Diego website,
“Until 1969, Coronado could only be reached by ferry or by driving along a narrow, seven-mile isthmus called the Silver Strand, which attaches Coronado to the mainland. Ferry service became more limited with the opening of the sweeping $50 million San Diego-Coronado Bridge. This graceful, five-lane, two-mile bridge is the only officially dedicated scenic highway of its kind, due to its unique beauty.”
All of which is one way of saying that part of keeping Coronado pristine and beautiful is having access to a reliable and reputable junk removal service.
Which is why, at Junk King San Diego Downtown, we specialize in expert junk removal.
For the Best in Junk Removal, Coronado has ‘Done for You’ Junk Services.
For all its natural beauty, stunning vistas, and charming neighborhoods, no one would be quick to say that it is conveniently located. Getting in and out of the town isn’t always fast nor easy. And this is just one of the many reasons why “do it yourself” junk removal isn’t the best approach for Coronado residents.
For folks living in or near the neighborhoods of Ocean Front, Coronado Cays, Village Core, or Bay Front, you know that what has always been a historically upscale housing market has increased like much of the rest of the country.
In fact, according to one source, as of October 2021, the median listing home price in Coronado was $2,200,000 more or less. But the interesting thing about residential junk is that it is a problem for everyone no matter where they live or the price of the residence!
And getting rid of your junk in Coronado can be just as challenging, or even more so, than anywhere else in the San Diego area.
Sure, your local residential waste management company can make special arrangements for what they call “bulky item” pick up, but it’s not convenient. And they won’t take care of every type of large junk removal needed.
In fact, according to instructions provided to residents on the company’s website,
“Residential bulky item service is NOT for: Commercial establishments, property clean up, construction or remodeling debris.”
Of course, that means you’ll have to take care of that yourself or rent a dumpster bin from the waste management company. And waiting around for them to come during certain times and days to pick up your piles of unwanted junk or debris like yard waste or old appliances is not convenient.
And, by the way, the nearest waste transfer station is over an hour away in case you’re even contemplating making your own junk removal run. While the nearest landfill is only a half hour drive from Coronado, you may not want to go there.
Aside from being the worst option for disposing of junk – much of which can be reused or recycled – it’s the only active landfill for the City of San Diego and it’s busy. How busy?
Approximately 275,000 vehicles bring trash to the Miramar Landfill each year and over 1,000 customers bring waste materials to the landfill each day. At the present rate of dumping, the Miramar Landfill will likely be filled to capacity by 2025.
Which is why calling Junk King San Diego Downtown is a far better solution.
How to Choose the Best Junk Removal Service in Coronado
When it comes to choosing the best junk removal service – no matter where you live – it helps to have an understanding of what’s involved with junk removal.
For many customers, it can seem like a simple process: they call and schedule a pickup appointment for their junk, wait around all day until the junk truck finally shows up. Then they have to tell the junk removal crew where all the junk is piled up, and then pay them a lot of money for the privilege of driving off with their unwanted stuff.
But it is a bit more involved than that.
For most of these customers, the process for them ends once the truck drives off. But for the junk haulers, there’s still much more to do. Unfortunately, what often happens for most junk removal firms is that the junk collected is simply transported to the nearest landfill or waste transfer station once their truck is full.
While this may be a simpler and more “cost-effective” approach for getting rid of and disposing of the junk, it’s not the greenest nor most environmentally responsible approach. Nor is it even necessary. However, this is not the approach that Junk King takes with junk disposal.
So, you might be wondering, “How does Junk King work?”
For starters, we make it incredibly easy to book an appointment for your junk pickup and removal. In fact, we give you four different ways to contact us, and our customer service team is top notch. Also, we don’t stick you with a six or eight hour time window for our truck’s arrival. We schedule our junk removal sessions within a two-hour window, and we show up on time, as promised.
In addition, our truck crew will call the customer 15 to 30 minutes before they arrive to ensure that the customer is ready and to assure them that our big, red junk removal truck and team our on their way.
And we don’t charge an “arm and a leg” for junk removal services. In fact, we work hard to provide the best pricing for our services in our service area. Which also means we never surprise you with “hidden” fees or add on extra charges. Upfront and transparent pricing is just one of the ways we work that sets Junk King apart from the rest.
5 Key Questions You Should Ask Your Junk Removal Services in Coronado
We understand that spending money on professional junk removal is not a light decision. Even a bare minimum fee will be over $100 regardless of where you live or who you call on.
And, while that may not break your budget, it’s a substantial enough amount for most people to want to do some due diligence before hiring a firm. So, it can help to know what questions to ask when hiring a company for such jobs as residential junk removal.
If you’re a homeowner, tenant, or small business owner in Coronado, here are five key questions you should ask a junk removal service before making your decision:
- What type of junk do they remove?
Not every junk removal firm will take every type of junk. Some smaller companies may not take large items such as concrete rubble or household appliances. Others may charge extra for some items such as old tires, used mattresses or certain electronics like TVs.
Of course, because of the laws around hazardous waste disposal, most companies cannot take household or industrial hazardous waste, such as flammable materials, batteries, paint, and solvent. These items almost always need to be handled through municipal agencies or specialty disposal firms.
- What is their pricing structure?
Not all junk removal companies are the same. And not all of them charge their customers in the same way. For example, some firms will simply charge a flat fee for taking a load of junk with some possible concessions made for “small” loads. Many others charge their customers based on the weight of their load. This can be somewhat less cost-effective for customers getting rid of just a few heavy items like household appliances. And then there are added fees and extra charges that are not always made clear beforehand.
You should always ask if you can be provided with a free, no-obligation on-site estimate, and if there are any additional or “hidden” charges.
Junk King pioneered the concept of “green” junk disposal and we have been recycling as much of the junk items we pick each day as possible. And we are still the industry leader when it comes to being the greenest junk removal service in the country.
Junk removal firms that do not practice recycling and reuse have only one other option for junk disposal: landfilling. Make sure you ask what their junk processing practices are and where the bulk of their junk and waste ends up.
- Are you bonded and insured?
You should always work with an insured junk removal company. The level of professionalism these companies must have to maintain their insurance and reputation determines their quality of service and reliability.
In addition, you need to know that you’re protected should any of your property get damaged in the junk removal process.
- How soon can they do the job?
Your time is valuable, and, in many situations, junk removal is a pressing need that is time-sensitive. Not only do you want to know if the company can accommodate you and your schedule, but you want to know how long you will have to wait on the day of your junk removal appointment.
It’s not uncommon for junk removal firms to provide you with a six or even eight hour time “window” for their junk removal crews to show up at your location.
One of the benefits of working with Junk King San Diego Downtown for your Coronado junk removal needs is that we are happy to answer all your questions and provide you with as much information as possible on our website, as well.
Transparency, trust, and treating people right are some of the hallmarks of our company. And our customer’s reviews reflect it.
The Best Junk Removal Services in Coronado – What to Expect from The King
For homeowners, business owners, and others looking to secure the best service for junk removal in Coronado, they really need look no further than Junk King San Diego Downtown.
Locally owned and locally operated, Junk King treats all of our customers like the people that they are: friends and neighbors. We understand that simply having large junk trucks and the ability to remove, load, and dispose of your junk isn’t all that makes for a great company.
A fair question to ask, however, is what is the cost of a call with Junk King?
Of course, the simple answer is that it depends. That’s because, unlike some companies, Junk King does not charge a flat fee. Nor do we charge by how your junk weighs. In fact, we believe the most equitable and fair method for pricing our junk removal services is to simply charge by how much space your junk takes up in our truck.
So, if you live in the 92118 ZIP code, for example, a junk removal session for two full pickup truck loads of junk would take up about a third of our junk truck space. This would cost you approximately $368 to $428, depending on exactly how much space is taken up.
Another good question to ask is what are the benefits of using a service like Junk King San Diego Downtown?
A short list would include the fact that:
- We are Insured
- We are Experienced

- We have Bigger Trucks and Lower Pricing
