San Antonio Junk Removal Prices

Every city has a place that visitors flock to but residents rarely see. In New York it’s the Statue of Liberty. In Los Angeles is the Hollywood Walk of Fame. And in San Antonio it’s the Alamo. Although the nearby River Walk certainly attracts it’s fair share of visitors and provides a much needed boost for the local economy, the Alamo is often relegated to an a “passing thought” by many of the locals. That might soon change. A group calling themselves Team Better Block recently held a festival at the Alamo showing how things might be if the city can approve spending a million dollars on improvements. The primary focus of this possible expansion would be to close the west end of Alamo Street and allow it to be an open market area for arts, crafts and food. For this “try-out” event, 10,000 folks showed up for the weekend which was a huge boost for the area.

Of course not everyone was in favor of this type of project but with the city looking for help to inject more money into local businesses this could be just the ticket. It might also mean that San Antonio becomes a bigger draw for tourists and visitors. If you’ve got family or friends living out of state you might be more inclined to invite them for a vacation if there is more to do around San Antonio. While there are plenty of hotels and inns for guests to stay at, nothing beats opening up your home provided you have the space. With the summer winding down, the holiday season will be right around the corner. Will you be inviting folks to spend some time with your family in the coming months? If so then you might want to make room by clearing out some junk taking up much needed space in your home.

It’s amazing how quickly we can fill up a spare room with useless stuff. What was once a perfectly decent guest room becomes a family’s dumping ground. That shouldn’t be the case. After all, you bought that house fully intending to use that spare room, right? Isn’t it time to reclaim that space? You can when you hire Junk King San Antonio.

Haul the Junk Out of Your San Antonio Home – Build A Gym

Every January, San Antonio gyms overflow with new members. These folks are committing themselves to that New Year’s resolution to get in shape. Sadly, by March many of these same folks have forgotten about that resolution and the gym membership has lapsed. The usual excuses crop up: not enough time, not enough motivation and just plain bored by the whole gym scene. What is unfortunate is that we all need exercise to stay healthy. How we get that exercise shouldn’t be a deterrent. That’s why many homeowners have discovered the many benefits of having an in-home gym. It’s hard to come up with an excuse not to exercise when all you have to do is merely walk down the hallway or into the garage.
Having a gym in your San Antonio home might seem like an extravagance but in reality it’s no different than any other room in your home with a purpose. In your family or living room, you’ll watch television. What would you need for that? Sofa, chairs, coffee table and of course that television. Along with TV you might add in a Blu-Ray player and surround sound system. You gave this room a purpose. Now, take that same attitude and apply it to a spare room or garage in your home. The purpose is an exercise room. First, you’ll have to clear out the junk that might have built up in that space. That’s easy especially when you call upon the services of a professional team of junk haulers like Junk King San Antonio. One call to this crew and you’ll be able to get all the clutter removed from your home.
Once you’ve reclaimed the space, you could start out your home gym with a simple piece of cardio equipment like a stationary bike. Here’s a helpful hint. Add a television to your exercise room. You spend at least a half an hour watching TV every day. Why not watch your favorite program while working out. Before you know it, the show will be over and you’ll have burned off a bunch of calories.
Depending on the space, you can add to your exercise bike by bringing in some free weights. Here is where that TV will come in handy when you can hook up a DVD player and pop in some exercise programs to follow. This is your own space and you won’t be in competition with anyone else to get at the exercise equipment.
Another benefit of putting this exercise room goes back to the idea of hiring the top San Antonio junk haulers. While you’re clearing out your exercise space, you can also take advantage of those pro Junk King movers to get rid of all the junk inside and outside of your home. As long as they are brining over a big empty truck, why not fill it up with all those items you’ve been wanting to get rid of? Get a jump on your New Year’s resolution and open up your own personal gym before New Year’s.

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 Appliance Disposal

Have you ever heard the saying, “One man’s junk is another man’s art?” Take a random tour of any San Antonio modern art gallery and you’ll find an amazing array of sculptures and paintings that incorporate what can best be described a garbage into art work. For these talented artists, everything is up for grabs: toilets, fast food wrappers, soda cans and even car parts. They all can provide inspiration for those artists that think outside of the box. Bigger pieces require bigger pieces of junk. Don’t be surprised to find a sculpture built around an old kitchen stove or sink. Could you turn your stove into a work of art? It could be fun to play around with, but what happens if it doesn’t turn out quite the way you’ve expected? You’ll then be left with a painted up stove that’s just sitting there being an eyesore. Maybe the better course of action is to leave the art to the artist and leave the old junk to a San Antonio appliance disposal company like Junk King.
Getting rid of your old appliances by calling up a team of professional junk haulers is a proactive step to take when you’re planing on upgrading or remodeling your kitchen. But there is another equally important reason and that has to do with keeping San Antonio clean. Most resident of San Antonio take great pride in the beauty of their home. Along with the stylistic architecture, the sprawling desert landscapes are the real work of art. However, that beauty can often be marred by the dumping of junk like old washers or refrigerators. Think of all the effort that has gone into dragging that appliance out of the house and loading it up into a truck only to take it out to a desert gulley to dump it. Maybe the person behind this illegal dumping thought they could drop it off at a landfill, but got lost. Or didn’t want to pay the dumping fee. Sadly what was once their problem is now our problem as we have to cringe every time we past it. It doesn’t have to be that way.

San Antonio Refrigerator Disposal

There are four doors we open every single day: the bathroom door, the bedroom door, the front door and the refrigerator door. It is conceivable that if you’re alone in the home, you can avoid opening the bedroom door or bathroom door and just leave them open all the time. You can also avoid the front door if you hunker down (not unheard of on a cold winter day). That leaves the refrigerator door. That one you cannot avoid opening. Even if it’s to look inside to see what you need from the grocery store, you’ll be opening and closing the fridge. Now add up how many times in a day you do this and its quick to see that refrigerator door is getting quite a work out throughout the year. Is it time for a new fridge? If so, it is also the perfect time to contact a San Antonio refrigerator disposal company like Junk King. Getting rid of the old icebox is as vital as getting a new model.

If you haven’t shopped for a refrigerator lately, you’re in for a treat. Just as advances in electronic design have improved microwaves, washers and dryers you’re going to find an amazing array of options when it comes to your next refrigerator. Yes, they still make the “no-thrills” models, but what’s the fun with those? Today, many refrigerators come standard with ice makers and water dispensers. But there’s a lot more going on inside a new refrigerator when it comes to storage drawers, crispers and coolers.  Shouldn’t you take care of your food?

Like most of our kitchen appliances, refrigerators aren’t meant to last our entire lifetime, Typically, a solid fridge can go a good five years without major problems. Then you’ll start to notice things breaking down. Your ice cream isn’t staying frozen and your vegetables have gone limp. That’s when it’s time for a replacement. If you haven’t arranged to have your old refrigerator removed by Junk King San Antonio, then you might end up shoving it out on the back porch or into the garage. And that’s where it will sit collecting dust and gathering rust.

There is something else that the old refrigerator can become and that’s a literal death trap. In fact, in Texas it is against the law to have a refrigerator or freezer on your property that isn’t being used without the doors being removed. Do you want to risk getting a summons or fine? You won’t have to if you have the old fridge taken away the same day the new fridge is scheduled to show up. It will just mean a simple matter of coordination between the deliveries of your new model with the removal of the old.

There are many things that you might replace in your home. And there are just as many things you can keep. Getting a new sofa could mean the old one going down into the basement. You can replace an old table with a new one, but still keep the old one. That’s not going to happen with the old refrigerator. Plan to have it hauled away by Junk King San Antonio!  Simply call 1-800-995-JUNK or book a free on site estimate today through an easy to use online booking form.

San Antonio Junk Recycling

As more and more folks are becoming eco-friendly, we’re adding a bunch of new words to our vocabulary. Suddenly everyone is talking about “carbon footprints,” “renewable energy” and becoming “carbon neutral.” Each of these ideas plays an important role in moving us to a cleaner and safer world, but have you thought about the new eco-idea of “green junk hauling?” Simply put, green junk hauling is a way to turn your unwanted trash into recycled, re-purposed and reused materials. That makes calling in a San Antonio Junk Recycling team the perfect alternative to old fashioned landfill dumping. And we all know adding to a landfill isn’t going to help with our environment – especially in San Antonio.
A qualified green junk hauling service should be able to recycle up to 60% of the garbage they haul away from your home or business. The key is to be specific when you set out to hire a San Antonio hauling company. A lot of haulers in the business really only care about picking up your trash and getting rid of it for you. To them, they only need to make one stop and that’s to the nearest landfill. Although these landfills might be far outside of San Antonio, the more garbage that is poured into them the greater the risk.
That garbage doesn’t just sit there. In the sweltering Texas sun, that garbage begins to break down to its original chemical components. Then that murky muck seeps into the soil which can mix with the ground water and make its way right back to San Antonio. The solution? Simple: junk recycling.
When a reliable San Antonio junk recycling service takes away all of your trash they are going to know just what to do with it. There are specific recycling facilities set up to handle various elements. There’s a plant for papers and plastics and another one for electronics like computers and old televisions. All of these items need to be properly sorted and dismantled. Then there are the bigger items made of metal and steel like old kitchen appliances or refrigerators. These go to their own recycling center.
Now, you can certainly load up your pickup with all these items and spend a couple of hours driving around San Antonio looking for all of the proper recycling centers. Or you can simply call up a San Antonio junk recyling company and let them handle the removal. The choice is pretty obvious!
There’s another great component to hiring a green hauling service and that’s the valuable lesson it will be teaching your kids. Get them involved with a clean-up project and share with them how their junk is actually going to be reused. When we recycle we cut down on the need to expend our valuable natural resources. In the long run this saves energy and saves the planet. If you’ve got a pile of garbage to get rid of – go green.
