Junk Removal in Spring Valley: The Complete Guide

Junk Removal in Spring Valley


Do you need junk removal right away? Click here.

There was a time many years ago when junk removal in Spring Valley, or La Presa, or Lemon Grove, was often a matter of hauling it out to the desert somewhere.


Of course, that’s never been a good way to dispose of junk. And there were easier ways to get rid of stuff back then, as well.


According to a paper published by the City of San Diego,


“Between the years 1880 and 1908, private contractors in the City of San Diego disposed of waste by incineration or by dumping it in the ocean. Many people preferred incineration, because trash dumped at sea often washed ashore. However, rather than pay the fee charged by the operators of the incinerators, residents sometimes dumped their waste in vacant spaces, causing a public nuisance.” 


While Silver Springs was little more than a sprawling ranch and growing number of orchards during those years, it’s quite likely that most of the junk accumulated back then was either left to rust or rot, burned, or otherwise disposed of or in whatever place was most convenient.



New Call-to-action


Junk removal has come a long way since then.


What is Junk Removal?


Strictly speaking, junk removal is simply the process of getting junk away from your home or property. That could be down the street to your neighbor’s house if they happened to want it, or across the county to the nearest landfill, if they’ll take it.


Junk Removal DulzuraHowever, junk removal in the generally used sense refers to an industry that assists with the decluttering process. In this respect, it’s quite a bit different from regular household or business trash pickup. 


For example, for the service you receive from a municipal waste management company, you typically get a trash bin for your home or business that you keep until you cancel your service. You would then place all your daily and weekly garbage into the bin until the garbage company’s truck comes and takes it away. 


Sometimes that garbage also contains items that you decided were now “junk” and no longer wanted. And this is all fine as long as your junk fits in the bin.


For everything else that you label as junk there are junk removal services.


Junk removal service is usually provided by a professional junk removal company. For example, in Spring Valley, junk removal is often carried out by firms such as Junk King San Diego. 


The Process of a Spring Valley Junk Removal Job from Start to Finish


Keep in mind that the overriding goal of any junk removal job is to remove clutter, and the process involved is fairly straightforward.


Junk King Truck in CoronadoSometimes the first step can be difficult. That’s determining what you are going to deem as being “junk” and deciding to get rid of it! There’s an old saying that “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure” and there is much truth to that. 


However, if you’ve determined that you have items you no longer want or need, and you either cannot or prefer not to sell them or give them away, then junk removal is the best alternative. Which takes us to the next step in a Spring Valley junk removal job: making the call.


Contact a reliable, local junk removal firm like Junk King San Diego, and schedule a junk removal session. During the call you can tell us what you need disposed of, or you can text us if you prefer. Just send us an image or two of the junk you want removed, and we’ll take it from there.


And, with Junk King, you can simply book an appointment with us online!

Once you choose a date for us to come out, we’ll inform you of all the two-hour arrival slots available for that day. You choose a time, and we book the appointment.


The next step is to have your junk ready for our junk removal team.


Our professional junk removal team will call you 15 to 30 minutes before they arrive to confirm your appointment and to let you know they are on their way. Once they arrive, our friendly and courteous team will give you a free on-site estimate based on how much space your junk will take up in our truck.

Property Clean Out


The good news is that you don’t have to move your junk or have it sitting in a certain place. You just wait for the last step in the process. 


The last step is to simply point out your junk items for us and we’ll do all the heavy lifting.


Our Junk King team will take just about anything and everything, including large furniture, old appliances, and even used mattresses. And we do it all without any hidden fees or added charges.




What are the Benefits of Hiring a Professional Junk Removal Service in Spring Valley?


Junk King San Diego



We know you can always find someone to take your junk for a cheap price. But, like many other things in life, junk removal is definitely one of those services where you get what you pay for. 


Which is not to say that you should pay unreasonably high junk removal fees just to get reliable and professional service. In fact, at Junk King we are constantly working to offer the best pricing in our service, all while providing fair and transparent pricing. 


But if you opt for a non-professional hauler – one that isn’t insured or bonded – you run the risk of unfortunate things occurring with the loading process and other unfortunate things happening when that “inexpensive” guy with a truck unloads your junk.

And that means that we are dedicated to recycling and reusing up to 65 percent or more of all the junk we collect each and every day. In other words, we are “professionally” eco-friendly! 


How to Choose the Best Company for Your Project


When it comes to junk removal and bulk trash hauling, spring valley residents deserve the best. And that means choosing the best company for your junk removal project.


Before you call the first name that comes up on a Google search for “junk removal near me” you should look for a few key things about the company.


residential junk removal for spring cleaning in mira mesaAre they locally owned and operated? Companies like Junk King San Diego care about their neighborhoods because they live here, too. So, we work hard to provide the best service at the best prices because we’re serving our friends and neighbors. 


Is their pricing simple and up-front? Many junk removal firms have added fees or hard-to-understand pricing structures. Many of them charge by weight. Not at Junk King. We always give you a free estimate and our pricing is up-front and transparent. And we only charge by how much room your junk takes up in our trucks.


Do they have a good reputation? If the company’s website has no reviews or testimonials, it’s only fair to ask yourself, “Why not?” At Junk King, our customers love us! We routinely receive reviews with statements like these:


    • “The Junk King Team was very professional.” – Philip J., Bonita
    • “Very professional and friendly.” – Jada P, Spring Valley

Foreclosure Cleanouts in San Diego: The Complete Guide

Estate Clean Out

Do you need a foreclosure cleanout right away? Click Here.

Foreclosures are unfortunate, sometimes tragic, events that can occur to most any homeowner or building owner. While the number of residential foreclosures rarely reach the levels that they did in 2008-2009 housing crisis and financial collapse.


As one source noted at the time, 


“A total of 632,573 California properties received a foreclosure filing in 2009, the nation’s largest state foreclosure activity total, an increase of nearly 21% from 2008.”


And, nationwide, there were 2.9 million foreclosure filings across the United States when the numbers peaked in 2010.


Until recently, foreclosures had become relatively few in number, having dropped below historically normal rates for the last five years or so. However, the government’s temporary COVID-19 moratorium on foreclosures has lifted and the number of foreclosed properties is beginning to rise.


New call-to-action


States that posted the greatest number of foreclosure starts in the third quarter of 2021, included California with 3,434 foreclosure starts.


What all this means for landlords and property owners is that the need for foreclosure cleanouts is on the rise, as well, even in San Diego.



What is a Foreclosure Cleanout and Who Needs to Get One?


Strictly speaking, foreclosure cleanouts involve the clearing out of all abandoned belongings, junk, debris, and trash from a vacated property. In the residential real estate market, this is often followed by a foreclosure cleanup to prepare foreclosed homes to be resold, especially in markets such as San Diego.


foreclosure cleanout

In San Diego, foreclosure cleanup and junk removal are common practices that are, more often than not, the responsibility of the landlord or the property owner.


Unless a vacated, foreclosed property is already completely empty and free of all trash, debris, junk, or other items that should not be in it, then a foreclosure cleanout is needed. If the property is a residential house, this might involve removing old appliances and abandoned furniture, as well as other smaller items. 


In larger, commercial buildings, the prior owners may leave behind office furniture, old appliances in break rooms, and even large debris and trash items such as old pallets, scrap metal and other materials, including trash and possibly hazardous wastes. 


Essentially, all properties that have been foreclosed on and vacated must be cleaned out prior to being put on the market again.



Different Types of Foreclosure Cleanouts in San Diego


There are essentially two types of San Diego foreclosure cleanouts. 


The most common foreclosure cleanout scenario in San Diego is a house that has been vacated by previous owners whose mortgage has gone into default. These, of course, are typically the most stressful for everyone involved since losing a home is usually a highly distressing situation for the homeowners and, often, for the landlord, as well. 


full service junk removal


These foreclosure cleanouts often precede a thorough foreclosed home cleaning.


The other, less common, type of foreclosure cleanout is one carried out for a commercial property. In California, commercial property foreclosures do not always result in the building being vacated, as in the case of light industrial or office buildings that are leased to tenants. 


However, when the property owner is also the tenant, and fails to avoid foreclosure proceedings, then that property is often vacated and left empty as a result. This, of course, usually means that a foreclosure cleanout will be necessary at some point so as to allow the property to be resold or leased.


These distressed properties, as they are also known, are relatively few in number and do not always require foreclosure cleanouts as they are not always vacated.



How to Prepare Your Home for a Foreclosure Cleanout


There are, of course, instances when the homeowner is preparing the home for a foreclosure cleanout. In many other circumstances, it is a real estate professional that is tasked with arranging for a foreclosure cleanout. And then there are situations where a landlord has the responsibility.


Preparing a home for a foreclosure cleanout can require little more than ensuring that all of the previous owner’s belongings are removed. 

A commercial property might require a bit more effort in terms of preparation, while the actual foreclosure cleanout work can be carried out by a third party team like those from Junk King San Diego. 

There can be a number of other tasks, however, that may also be required when preparing a home or property for the foreclosure process. These can include securing the structure, making a number of repairs, and maintaining the upkeep and landscaping, and so on.

Property Clean Out




How much do Foreclosure Cleanouts Cost?


The average cost of a foreclosure cleanout in San Diego depends on a number of factors.


These foreclosure cleanout pricing factors include the overall volume of junk, debris, and trash that needs to be removed, where the property is located in San Diego or in the neighboring area, and the type of foreclosure cleaning services the landlord makes use of. 


property cleanouts

Even a DIY approach on the part of the landlord will often require a dumpster rental and, quite possibly, hiring a small team of laborers to carry out the work. This could end up costing the landlord or property owner anywhere from $500 to $1,000 or more depending on how much debris needs to be cleaned out and how many hours are required.


In addition, in this scenario the landlord typically has to make all the arrangements and follow through in order to ensure the cleanout is completed properly.


On the other hand, a landlord can call on a professional junk removal service that specializes in foreclosure cleanouts, like Junk King San Diego. In this scenario, the cost can not only be more affordable, but the work will be carried out by expert junk haulers, making the entire process far more efficient and cost-effective for the landlord or property owner.

For example, if a typical foreclosure cleanout results in filling a Junk King truck 100% percent full, this would be the equivalent of about six full pickup truck loads.


And the cost for this proposed foreclosure cleanout scenario in, say, Spring Valley, would cost you between $675 to $700. 




Everything (Else!) You Need to Know About San Diego Foreclosure Cleanouts


The steps often required before, during, and after a property foreclosure can include far more than just the foreclosure cleanout and cleanup. Depending on the role of the landlord, owner, or bank agent, there can be tasks that must be carried out to ensure the security and cleanliness of the foreclosed property.


Here is a checklist to help guide you through the process and task that may be required.



Foreclosure Clean Out Infographic

The unfortunate reality when it comes to foreclosure proceedings is that many foreclosed properties are filled with debris, trash, and abandoned belongings. All of this can be the result of property that the previous occupants failed to remove or haul away.


What is even more unfortunate, especially for the landlord, is that the task of removing these materials often falls on them or, perhaps, a bank or finance company representative that now holds the property. 


This is why Junk King really is your best choice for taking care of a foreclosure cleanout.
