San Antonio Bulk Pickup

Do you know the proper way to lift a heavy object? It’s with the legs and not the back. If squats are part of your gym workout then you’ve probably got this concept nailed. The power should be transferred to your quads. If you’ve ever seen a mover or warehouse worker wearing a back brace that is to serve as a reminder to them not to use their backs. Anyone who has thrown out their back knows this is not a pleasant situation to be in.

Oddly enough, you could go into back spasms with a bunch of sneezes. One of the reasons often cited by chiropractors as why backs go into spasm is dehydration. Yes, if you drank more water you’re back would be better off. Most back spasms or pulled muscles occur when we try to lift a heavy object. When the weight of the object is more than your body can endure, your back muscles stretch like taffy but they aren’t elastic. Welcome to the pain.

This could be why you’re holding onto a lot of junk; it’s too heavy to move. Consider the old sofa. After a couch has lived out its usefulness you’ll replace it with a new model. What happens to the old sofa? It can’t be put out on the curb or in the garbage so it gets shoved into another room or into the garage. Shoving isn’t the same as lifting. You can push that sofa a lot easier then you can pick it up or try to load it onto your pickup. That’s where the sofa will now live for years. How many items do you have like that in your home? Something that is big and bulky that just got shoved out of the way? Isn’t it time to get rid of those things?

Prepare for Fiesta San Antonio – Get Rid of that Old Junk

Way back in 1891, the folks of San Antonio wanted to find way to honor the heroes of the Texas Revolution so they came up with Fiesta San Antonio. Over the years, this celebration has evolved into a city-wide party running for several days. There are all kinds of tasty treats, art exhibits and parades filling up the days and nights.
Among the highlight is the Texas Cavaliers River Parade which is San Antonio’s version of the Rose Parade, but in this case the decorated floats are barges winding their way down the San Antonio River Walk. For the Fiesta Flambeau Parade, everyone is encouraged to dress up and carry some kind of illumination. This is a fun time for the whole family. And don’t forget about A Night In Old San Antonio which is actually a four night celebration featuring flying cascarones. These are confetti-filled eggshells meant to be smashed over the head of friends both old and new.
Many folks get into the spirit of Fiesta San Antonio by extending an open invitation into their homes. This is the perfect excuse for family gatherings and backyard bar-b-ques. If you’re gearing up for a festival party then you obviously want to make sure you home is ready. This could be the perfect excuse you’ve been waiting for to get rid of that eyesore hot tub once and for all.
A lot of times when folks buy a home, they “inherit” certain things that the previous homeowner installed. These could be fences, hedgerows, swimming pools and yes, hot tubs. At first the idea of a having a hot tub in your new home was probably thought of as an added bonus. Then once you moved in, you soon discovered why that hot tub was empty: it’s doesn’t work anymore! Unfortunately, this is not an item you can simply unplug and toss out with the garbage. You might need to bring in the pros – Junk King San Antonio.
A professional San Antonio junk hauling crew should be well versed in hot tub disposal (or any other junk items for that matter). Although it might look like one thing, there are actually several components to a hot tub that have to be properly dismantled, not the least of which is the heavy motor that powers the entire operation. You could try to break down the tub piece by piece and load those items up in your pickup, but what happens when you’re left with the big fiberglass shell? Smashing that up in to little pieces isn’t really a safe and practical option. What you really need is several movers and a big enough truck to haul it off in.  While they’re at your home they can haul off any other junk items you have lying around – broken refrigerators, old washers, yard waste or ripped mattresses.
If you inherited a hot tub that you’re not longer using, wouldn’t it be easier to just point to that beast and say, “Get it gone!” Of course it would. And that’s what you can have accomplished when you give Junk King San Antonio a call at 1-888-888-JUNK. Once the hot tub is gone, you can hang the streamers and the lights and get ready for the fiesta!

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.

Junk King San Antonio can handle all your furniture removal needs with efficiency and an eco-friendly touch.  Simply call 1-888-888-JUNK or book a free on site estimate online.

San Antonio Furniture Pickup

But once those walls are taken care of you might notice that some of your furniture is a bit threadbare. As long as you’re in the make-over mood you might continue by adding some brand new pieces of furniture that match your new color scheme. But what about the old stuff?

That’s why bringing in a furniture pickup team will mean you won’t have to hear those excuses. One phone call and whatever furniture you want gone will be gone!

As fall approaches, there will be hoards of kids heading off to college. Although these freshmen might not like the idea, this is a perfect time to remodel that old bedroom and turn it into a guestroom or screening room or some other dream you’ve thought up. First you’ll need to get rid of all the old stuff. In a kid’s room, that furniture could be close to fifteen years old. After all, how often does a teenager “remodel?”  You can always store that old furniture in your garage or basement, but isn’t storage space already limited? And do you think in four years your college graduate will want their first bedroom set for their new life? A furniture pickup company can haul it all away and leave you an open space to work with.

Getting rid of old furniture is a perfect way to make a fresh start in your home. You might enjoy entertaining but feel embarrassed by the condition of that well worn sofa sectional.
