Garage Clean Out Time: Use the Space for Your Car

Here’s a simple question for all you garage owners out there: When was the last time you actually parked you car in your garage? Remember when you first considered buying the San Antonio home you’re living in now? If you talked about it to friends or family, you probably gave them the rundown of how many bedrooms and bathrooms there were. You knew the square footage and whether or not your kitchen appliances were new. Then there was the garage. This is always a big selling point especially if it’s a two car garage. That can only mean you’re achieved that level of success not only to have two cars, but to have a place to put them. So, you signed the contracts, put down your deposit and closed the deal. For many folks, they might have used that two car garage for parking their cars in the first week, but soon after that something else took over the garage: junk!
Don’t feel guilty. This happens to most people. Ironically, the first sign of trouble could be on that very first move in day. Just where did all those empty boxes go? Admit it: They were tossed into the garage. As soon as it became acceptable to put a “thing” in the garage, it was long before everything else that you found no use for ended up in there. Sure, if you could throw these things away you would. But what are you going to do with the water skis, the tennis gear or the skateboards that nobody is using anymore? What about all stuff you’ve replaced in your home? Could your list of garage junk include a non-working air conditioner? An ugly ceiling fan? A box of tacky looking curtains?
The garage is also a magnet for things like broken refrigerators, ratty sofas or lumpy mattresses. And let’s not forget all the auto parts. It makes sense that if you have a garage and you have someone who likes to tinker with cars that they would use this space for their work. But how many tires, fenders, or parts from an engine are lying around just getting rusty? If any of this sounds familiar to you then you should be thinking about hiring a professional crew like Junk King San Antonio to come and clean out that garage.
Once you’ve gotten the garage cleaned out, what will you do with the space? Sure, you can finally give your cars a home, but there are many other options. With a little waterproofing and weather sealing, you could convert the garage into a home office or guest room. Some folks have gone as far as taking down the remote sliding door and replacing it with a wall with windows. The only reason you don’t get more use out of your garage probably has more to do with all the junk that’s in there rather than your lack of a need. One call to Junk King, who specializes in this kind of garage clean up, and your junk woes will be gone for good.

San Antonio Hauling – Making Your Junk History

Every San Antonio school kid knows the important role their city has played in American history. History is simply defined as anything that happens in the past. It doesn’t have to be something as memorable as “Remember the Alamo.”  In fact, what you had for dinner last night is part of the “history of what you’ve eaten in your life.” Have you ever thought about the “history of all your junk?” Chances are you have piles of “history” gathering dust that should be taken out of your home by a team of experienced San Antonio junk haulers.

We never set out to buy junk but ultimately that is exactly what is going to happen to all our stuff. Take the bed you’re sleeping on. When it was first bought, it was probably firm and cozy. After several years, it might be more squishy and lumpy. In fact, the average recommended lifespan of a mattress is about ten years. From that point on, it should be classified as junk. Don’t think so? How about this? After ten years your mattress has actually gotten heavier by about ten pounds. That would be ten pounds of dead skin cells, bug carcasses and all kinds of other items. Now, isn’t it time to get rid of it?

How about that living room sofa? When you first bought that you probably put a lot of effort in matching it to your other furnishings. Or maybe it was the first piece you bought for your new home and you matched all the curtains and rugs around that. But now after several years that sofa is history. Actually it’s a history of soda stains, food spills and paw prints. Yes, there is a memory in each one of those stains but is that really something you want to be spending quality time sitting on?

Enter your San Antonio junk hauling company. They’ll know just what to do with all your “history.”  An experienced team of junk haulers might bring the right size truck and the right kind of loading equipment to take away whatever needs to be removed. You might have piece of car fenders, broken fences or chunks of pavement that should be hauled away but because they are too heavy or too dirtier you haven’t had the chance to take care of that. No problem for the junk haulers. Not only can they clear out that clutter in one day but they’ll know just where to take it all.

Do you know where your nearest landfill is located? What about any recycling centers around San Antonio? When you hire professional junk haulers you don’t have to know any of that. That’s what they get paid for! After evaluating your junk, they’ll know exactly what can be destined for the dump or the recycling facility. And if some of your junk manages to make its way to being repurposed, it has the chance of “repeating history” by becoming somebody else’s new item. That is truly the circle of life; or at least the circle of junk.

San Antonio Junk Removal – A Job for Professionals

Of all the famous phrases uttered throughout American history, “Remember the Alamo” is right up there with “give me liberty or give me death.” The Alamo certainly stands alongside many important historic sites across the country.  But there is so much more to see and do in San Antonio beyond the walls of the Alamo.

One of the most popular attractions is the gorgeous River Walk.  This winding man made river is lined with restaurants, cafes, museums and shops. You could spend days strolling along San Antonio’s River Walk and not see it all. The River Walk is kept pristine thanks to the dedicated shopkeepers and municipal workers. However, think about what a site would look like if they stopped taking away the garbage. The river would quickly overflow with trash. Fortunately that’s not the case for San Antonio. And it doesn’t have to be the case for your own home when you can call in a San Antonio junk removal company to clean up your space.

Nobody sets out to make junk; stuff just turns out that way. Years ago, you bought a brand new sofa that looked beautiful in your living room. But over time, the sofa has withstood stains, dirty paws and feet. The moment you decide you need a new sofa, that old sofa has become junk. The same can be said for your first computer, a big old TV screen and any number of kitchen appliances. They all worked at one point but now, not so much. You have two choices: hold onto the junk or get rid of the junk. Holding onto it might make sense if you actually think it might serve a purpose someday but let’s be honest; it’s not going anywhere is it? That’s why option two of “getting rid of it” can be accomplished with a qualified San Antonio junk removal team.

Junk can also be leftovers. No, not your meatloaf from two nights ago, but leftovers from building projects. This could be piles of wood, hunks of drywall or pieces of cement. What about those long forgotten car projects? If you have a car tinkerer in your house then it’s a safe bet out in the garage are all kinds of fenders, batteries, gears, pistons, shocks and gaskets simply collecting dust and rust. Maybe these “items” have never been thrown out because they’re just too bulky for the weekly garbage pick up. They won’t be a problem for a San Antonio junk removal crew.

All it takes is one phone call to get the junk hauling process going- 1-800-995-JUNK. That first call will set up your free on site estimate appointment. The San Antonio junk removal crew will come out to assess all your hauling needs and present you with a price based on how much room your junk takes up in the truck. Once that is settled, the crew can show up and get the job done.  And that job will be done on your schedule. You shouldn’t have to devote an entire day waiting to get rid of your junk. It can happen in a matter of hours. Junk in the morning – gone by the evening!
