San Antonio Furniture Removal

Medical history was recently made in San Antonio when the world’s largest kidney exchange occurred over a three day period.  Sixteen recipients got kidneys from sixteen donors. It’s the largest simultaneous organ exchange of its kind anywhere in the world. This happened when one donor wanted to give their kidney to a loved one, but couldn’t because they weren’t a match. That’s when another person with the same set of circumstances stepped in to donate their kidney in exchange for a match for their loved one. Before you know it, you have a chain of folks all giving and taking at once. The San Antonio medical team is to be commended for such an amazing feat.

So, what does any of this have to do with furniture removal? In many ways, getting rid of your old furniture is like getting rid of an organ that has worn out. Obviously, a kidney transplant is far more serious then tossing out an old sofa, but if you have the opportunity to handle the small stuff in your life then the big stuff will be easier to take on.

A piece of furniture can also be donated. If it is in reasonable condition, you might want to pass along a dining room table or bedroom set to someone you know that could really use it. Or you could donate your furniture to charitable organizations like Goodwill or the Salvation Army. They can turn around and sell it and use the money to help out other folks in need. Think of it as a kind of circle of life but with a sofa. Of course all of that depends on the condition of your donated furniture. Is it really a “match”  for a new family or has it outlived itself?

Do you remember the day when your furniture crossed over into the junk zone? Was it that last spill of wine or the last stampede of muddy dog paws? Was it when the leg broke and you tried to fix it with nails and screws? Was it when your mother-in-law came for a visit and refused to sit anywhere? You probably remember the day very well. Whatever the cause, if your furniture can now be officially classified as junk you have no other choice but to call up a San Antonio furniture removal company like Junk King to haul it off.

Before you make that call, think about the total picture of what you have to get rid of. Yes, the sofa might be the reason you’re hiring the removal crew, but what about those rolled up rugs you’ll never use? How about the bags of dusty drapes?  Let’s face it; if you put your mind to it you might just come up with an entire truck full of junk that can be taken out of your life. Of course if it is just one sofa, then don’t wait for the other junk to pile up. Get that furniture out of your house and replaced it with something new, clean and fresh.

San Antonio Residential Junk Removal

No matter what time of the year it is, someone can always make the case that “the holidays are just around the corner.” There might actually be a period of one day in March and a long afternoon in late July where there are no signs of any holidays. Other than that, Halloween runs into Thanksgiving which leads up to Christmas, quickly followed by New Years’, then Valentine’s Day, then Easter, and then the start of summer/end of school. Sprinkle in all the birthdays and anniversaries and you get the picture; our lives are full of celebrations.

For an active household, this means a constant rotation of schedules: the putting up and taking down of decorations for all kinds of parties and celebrations. What a lot of work! Admit it; you wouldn’t want it any other way. Here’s the thing you might want to consider for the next pre-holiday wave; why not make room in your home by getting rid of all your unwanted junk first? This can easily be accomplished by hiring a San Antonio residential junk removal company like Junk King.

Getting rid of your junk allows you to set up a guest room for visiting family members or friends. As you haul out the old decorations, you might discover that the plastic snowman has seen better days and it’s time to replace him. Or the blow-up reindeer are leaking. It might be sad to part with them, but does it really make sense to bring them out of the garage every year just to drag them back in again? Tossing out old decorations can be just the beginning. If you plan on entertaining this holiday season, it might be time to replace the old sofa. It might seem silly to hire a junk removal team just to take away a sofa, but who else is going to get rid of it? Keep in mind that just because you might be getting rid of a sofa doesn’t mean you can’t get rid of a lot more.

Try this experiment: go through your house searching every closet, every storage space, all the nooks and crannies and just imagine all the stuff you can toss out. You don’t have to pull any of this out yet, just mentally picture the huge pile of trash you’ll actually have waiting to be tossed out. If you’re really excited, you could utilize a stack of Post-it notes and label everything you want to haul away. When Junk King San Antonio shows up they’ll use your directions and handle all of the heavy lifting. You won’t have to lift a finger.
