When You’re On Your Phone Saying ‘Junk Removal Near Me

We get it. Sometimes a person just needs to get some information fast.

And a quick way to do that is to say or type something into your phone, usually to Google. And you will get results. But the problem is that just because you have some company names on the first page of results you still must choose one of them.

So, how do you choose wisely?

When ‘Junk Removal Near Me’ Means Too Many Choices

A totally unscientific experiment that involved typing the words junk removal near San Diego,” for example, resulted in about 19,600,000 results. Not very helpful.

But just on the first page there were a total of six paid ads, three visible listings on the Google Map Pack, nine organic listings for junk removal firms, and one listing that was for a well-known local business review site. 

And that was just the first page of results…

(By the way, the irony of you probably reading this online is not lost on us, either!)

So, how do you know which ‘junk removal service near me’ is going to be the best choice? 

Knowing What Matters When It Comes to Junk Removal Near Me

We know that you could simply find someone with a pickup truck fitted with sideboards who offers junk hauling services. And, while you could certainly go that route, we also know that you get what you pay for. 

And sometimes, with a less-than-reputable hauler you may get more than you bargained for. 

But we believe that you are in the market for a reputable and reliable junk removal service. With that in mind, we’ve put together a brief overview of several factors for professional junk removal that should matter to a customer.

When it comes to choosing a reliable junk removal service near you in San Diego, here are five criteria you should keep in mind.

They are Professional and Have Great Service

The hallmarks of a professional service provider typically include uniforms, clean and branded trucks, as well as a user-friendly and well-managed website.

In addition, when it comes to junk removal, being professional means a trained staff to ensure the work is done right and done safely. In addition to being professional, a preferred junk removal service will always provide exceptional customer service.

They are Fully-Insured and Licensed

If any of these elements are missing, then the junk removal firm is not a professional company. They run great risks operating without these elements in place. And you will, too, as you could leave yourself open to liabilities and no recourse should something not go quite right with your junk removal job. 

They are Locally Owned and Operated

One of the benefits of choosing Junk King San Diego, for example, is that we are locally owned and operated. This has allowed us to build our own, local reputation, as well. This is because we understand, as you do, that great reviews, enthusiastic referrals, and happy customers matter far more than high-priced promotions and advertising.

As Junk King San Diego owner Bruce Stone has said,

“The demand for high-quality San Diego junk removal services only continues to grow. Consumers and businesses turn to Junk King to receive the most professional and affordable junk removal services in the industry.”

They Have a Good Reputation and Reviews

And, speaking of reputation, another reason to choose a junk removal service near you like Junk King San Diego is that we are part of a nationally recognized company that is rated Number One for service.

This simply means that even before our location was started doing business in San Diego, Junk King’s reputation had preceded us.

They Follow COVID-Safe Practices

As much as we would all like to think that the impact of the recent coronavirus pandemic is behind us, any company must recognize the continuing need for safety. Of course, it’s an understatement to say that our world has changed profoundly since the outbreak of COVID-19, and it continues to be essential for businesses to respond accordingly.

So, what does that mean at Junk King San Diego?

We continue to practice social distancing and follow all local, state, and federal guidelines as well as those from the CDC. We maintain a six foot distance from every customer and our junk haulers can pick up curbside, never entering your home.

In addition, gloves, masks, and hand sanitizers are provided on every truck used to protect both you and our haulers.

Recycling-Based Disposal Processes

Okay, so this makes six. Consider a “bonus” factor to consider.

However, at Junk King San Diego, recycling is not an after-thought or a “bonus” feature we do occasionally. It is at the heart of our corporate mission.

That is because the standard process for most junk removal firms has been to pick up loads of junk and take it all to a landfill. But this is completely short-sighted and unnecessary since up to 80 percent or more of the solid waste materials we dispose of in San Diego can be recycled.

This is true for the junk items and materials Junk King San Diego picks up each day. And we believe that any junk removal service should be held to the standard of being a recycling-based business. This is why we regularly recycle up to 60 percent or more of everything we pick up every day.

In fact, Junk King pioneered the practice of green junk removal and was the first truly green and eco-friendly junk removal service in the industry. It is Junk King’s corporate mission to recycle as much of the waste and junk items we pick up as possible. And that’s been true since Junk King was founded in 2005.

We have always been “green” and we continue to do all that we can to preserve our city, our neighborhoods here in San Diego, and our planet. Not to mention a green and sustainable alternative to landfills.

This means that, when you choose Junk King San Diego for your junk removal needs, you’ll be contributing to a greener alternative, as well.

When You Need Easy Mattress Disposal In San Diego

There are some things that last a long time.

Our homes are expected to last for generations, for example. Our cars, if we’re lucky, should last up to 200,000 miles. And our mattresses will last, on average, between 7 to 10 years. But, despite their relative longevity, mattresses eventually need to be replaced.

And that means mattress disposal is required for the old ones.


Ready To Book? Click & Save $20!


Mattress Removal is Not an Easy Task

Buying a new mattress can be fun for many people, especially those looking to finally replace that old bed that went well past it’s “7 to 10 years” of useful life! It can be somewhat exciting to find and buy a new mattress that promises comfortable, supportive, and restful sleep again.

So, how do you know it’s time for a new mattress?

Consumer Affairs offers five signs to watch for:

It’s uncomfortable

The most obvious sign that it’s time to look into a new mattress is whether or not your mattress is actually comfortable.

You wake up in pain

Another glaring reason to replace your mattress is that you wake up with aches and pains. When you routinely wake up in pain after sleeping, there is generally only one common denominator — your mattress.

You’re tired throughout the day

If you are waking up and making your way through the day feeling drowsy, you may need to get a new mattress.

It’s dirty

Maybe your mattress has held up well over the past 20 years. However, mattresses tend to absorb a lot of dirty things. Unless you are up for a rigorous DIY cleaning, a full replacement may be your best bet.

The mattress is deformed

If you and your partners’ body imprints are highly defined, and there is a visible peak in between the two sides, your mattress is no longer able to function as intended.

Again, acquiring a new mattress is simple enough, aside from having to decide among all the available options. And most of the time, your replacement mattress will be delivered for you and even set up on your bed.

Unfortunately, old mattress disposal is never quite so easy. 

Yes, in California, retailers must offer to take your old one back for free if you buy your new mattress from them. But if you simply find a used mattress somewhere or have one given to you that’s in much better shape than your current mattress, what do you do?

The majority of the time you will be managing that task yourself. Especially if you haven’t purchased a new mattress but are simply getting rid of one or two that you no longer need in your home. Maybe your last child has left home, or perhaps you’re downsizing and need to rid yourself of some beds and other furniture.  

And, as we all know, mattresses are heavy, awkward, bulky, and often next to impossible to haul anywhere by yourself. And even with two people it is a burdensome chore (no pun intended!)

This is why Junk King San Diego specializes in mattress disposal.

Planning for Old Mattress Disposal

We understand, too, that there are several potential options for disposing of your old mattress. But, before we look at these, let’s just make it very clear that the one way you should never get rid of your unwanted mattress is to simply dump it in an empty lot, field, or shoulder of a backroad somewhere. 

Not only is that illegal in California and in San Diego County, it’s both disrespectful to your fellow San Diegans and unsightly. 

Okay, off the soapbox and on to mattress removal options. 

Essentially, you have three options when it comes to used mattresses. 

Donate It

You can try to donate your mattress if it is clean, in good condition, and has been thoroughly treated. If you are unable to find a thrift shop or non-profit group that will take your mattress, you can simply give it away to a friend, neighbor, or family member.

Recycle It

Another option is to take the mattress to a suitable recycling facility. Online organizations such as ByeByeMattress.com can provide you with resources to make that happen. But that means loading, hauling, and unloading that old mattress! San Diego residents can use the following locations:

  • Otay Landfill – 1700 Maxwell Rd., Chula Vista, CA 91911

Residents can drop-off up to five old mattresses for free per day.

  • El Cajon Transfer Station – 915 O’Conner St., El Cajon, CA 92020

Drop-off is free and available for city residents only, no businesses.

Call for Help

You have a few choices for this kind of service in the San Diego area. However, you will want to find a vendor that has a solid reputation, can guarantee that your old mattress will end up being either donated or recycled and doesn’t charge by weight. 

So, call us biased, but we firmly believe that at Junk King San Diego, we are your number one choice when it comes to mattress disposal.
