What You Should Know Before Hiring A Junk Removal Service In San Diego


Junk hauling



Junk removal is one of those tasks that can sometimes be done with a quick trip to a local non-profit outlet for those “junk” items that are actually still usable. In fact, donating your unwanted household or office items is a terrific way to “recycle” many pieces of furniture or equipment.


The San Diego area is known for both its generosity when it comes to donating and giving, as well as its penchant for upholding the mantra of “reuse, repurpose, recycle.” 


But then there’s the junk that is no longer usable and definitely no longer wanted.

Again, sometimes junk removal for these unwanted items and material might simply involve nothing more than placing them in a trash or recycling bin, depending on what they are and how large. 


However, many homeowners, renters, and businesspeople can find themselves with large amounts of junk or junk items that are just simply large – and they have no way of getting rid of them.


And that’s when hiring a junk removal service is the best option.


The Complete Guide to Hiring a Junk Removal Service


On the face of it, the task of junk removal and finding junk removal services might seem fairly straightforward and simple, right?


What can be complicated about finding a service for removing junk and hauling junk away to… well, someplace? 


But the truth is that proper and cost-effective junk removal involves quite a bit more than just hiring some guy with a truck to slog through your home or office, dragging junk and rubbish out to be taken and dumped somewhere in a way that may or may not be legal.


In fact, while it certainly isn’t rocket science – we can leave it to the engineering students at San Diego State University – but it does require some research and knowing what questions to ask and what to look for in a professional and reliable junk removal service.


Which is why we have put together a brief “complete guide to hiring a junk removal service” here.


How to Choose the Right Junk Removal Company for Your Needs

Junk removal needs for those of us living and working in and around San Diego can run the gamut from large piles of yard waste to old furniture removal to unwanted and no-long-working office equipment. 


There are distinct categories of junk disposal, as well, such as residential junk removal services, commercial trash pick-up, and – for both residential and commercial jobs – even dumpster rental services. And choosing the right junk removal company for your needs is partly dependent on what type of junk removal you have.


Of course, the best junk removal firms will offer both residential and commercial junk hauling services. 


The key is in determining which of these are going to be the best, or “right,” choice for your particular junk removal situation. And, while we could give you lots of reasons to simply just call Junk King San Diego, we believe that it is fair to provide you with five steps for choosing and hiring the right junk removal provider for your needs.


The 5 Steps for Hiring the Right Junk Removal Service Provider


Finding the best junk removal firm for your junk disposal needs involves a bit more than simply searching your smartphone for “junk removal near me.” Here is a five-step process that you can follow to ensure you only call on the best when it comes to junk removal services.


Step 1 – Research


The first thing you should do is to find out what companies are available in your area and that they provide the types of services you need. Keep in mind that no junk removal firms can haul hazardous materials or hazardous waste, by the way.


Also, not every company provides service for every type of junk removal.


Step 2 – Compare Quotes


Once you’ve identified three or more local junk removal companies in your area, you should be able to request quotes from each of them based on your particular junk hauling need. If a company cannot or will not provide you with either a quote or a free estimate, then that firm should be crossed off your list. 


Step 3 – Ask About Insurance


While it may seem to be a given for a commercial firm to be insured, it is always smart to confirm that with a company before making a decision about hiring them. This is important not only for commercial customers whose own liability obligations require that they only hire vendors that are properly insured, but for homeowners and other residential customers for their protection. 


Step 4 – Find Out if They are Bonded


In addition to being insured, knowing that the company you are considering for you junk removal service is bonded is critical as well. A service industry bond helps to safeguard the property of customers and clients when a vendor enters their home or place of business.


Being bonded helps create trust between a business and their clients because it gives customers assurances that they will be financially protected from losses they may suffer if the vendor doesn’t completely fulfill their contractual obligations to them.


Step 5 – Get Referrals


In today’s world of online reviews and star ratings, almost every business looks to garner as much positive feedback from their customers as possible. And this is true for most junk removal services, as well. 


In addition to the reviews and ratings you might find online, it is always a good idea to try to get actual word-of-mouth referrals from actual customers, if possible. Talking with someone who has had experience with a particular firm can reveal much more than a three-line blurb on Yelp, for example. 


Bonus Step: Find Out if They are a Green Company



junk removal service recycling


Junk removal leads to junk hauling which culminates as junk disposal. But a real concern for many residents and businesses in the San Diego area is – or should be – where does all my junk end up when it gets hauled away?


The sad truth is that the vast majority of junk and other solid waste still ends up in landfills. And this is true for San Diego County, as well as for most of California and the rest of the country. 


But another truth is that up to 80 percent of the materials we toss out and have hauled off is recyclable. And a green and environmentally-friendly junk removal service will make it a part of their mission to always sort and recycle as much junk as possible. 

Which is why Junk King San Diego prides itself on being part of the pioneers of green junk removal. We regularly recycle as much as 60 percent or more of everything we pick up on a daily basis.

Everything You Need to Know About Junk Removal Services in Alpine CA

Junk Removal La Mesa, Junk Removal Alpine


There are many beautiful regions throughout San Diego County and Alpine is certainly one of those.


Although Alpine CA is not an incorporated town or city, it is, however, what the U.S. Census Bureau refers to as a “census-designated place” or CDP. Alpine sits in the midst of the rugged and scenic Cuyamaca Mountains of San Diego County, and is surrounded by the Cleveland National Forest


With a population of almost 15,000 people, Alpine also shares a common need along with everyone else living in and around San Diego – and that is the need for occasional junk removal services.

What is Junk Removal?


Back in the so-called “good old days” people would load up unwanted household items – all their junk – and haul it off to a nearby junkyard. When the use of private and municipal landfills became more common, the junkyards were often by-passed, and everything went straight to the “dump.”


In more recent times, the prospect of hauling one’s own junk has become somewhat “old school” and even impractical. There are not that many landfills or even junkyards around San Diego County any longer. And not everyone has the means nor the ability to load, haul, and unload their own junk and debris.


Which is why junk removal services like Junk King San Diego exist today.


Cities, towns, and neighborhoods throughout the greater San Diego rely on Junk King for their residential and commercial junk removal,  Alpine CA included. For all types of residential and commercial junk, debris, waste, rubbish and trash, Junk King is the better way to go.


So, in a nutshell, junk removal is the process of having old and unwanted items or materials removed from your property, whether that is your home or your place of work.


Of course, you do have the option of providing your own “junk removal services.”


With your own pickup truck or trailer, some tie-downs, straps, and maybe a shovel or two, you can certainly be your own “junk hauler.” But why would you want to spend your valuable time doing all that heavy lifting, paying for the gas and dumping fees, and driving all the way back home to what will likely be a repeat trip just to get it all when you could just call Junk King San Diego?


When Should I Hire a Junk Removal Service?


Junk King Trash Removal


How do you if you need junk removal?


Perhaps the easiest way to determine that is to look at the junk you need to get rid of and ask yourself two questions:


  1. Can I fit all of this into my residential waste and recycling bins?
  2. Can I load all of this into my own vehicle and take it to the nearest landfill or transfer station?


If your answer to both of these questions is “No” then you need to hire a junk removal service. But that leads to a third question, “Who do I call?”


At Junk King, we understand that you have several options when it comes to your junk removal needs, and we also know that you have many options when it comes to choosing a junk removal service for Alpine CA.


But we also know that Junk King San Diego is the top-rated service in our region and offer the best value for your hard-earned money.


So, we invite you to take a look at our Junk King reviews and consider our pricing. We say this because, at Junk King, cost is important to us. We go above and beyond to provide the best pricing in our service area and the best value for your dollar. Fair and transparent pricing, and no hidden fees or added charges – that’s how we do things at Junk King.


And, best of all, when you call out Junk King San Diego for your junk removal services, we do all the heavy lifting!


What is the Difference Between Residential and Commercial Junk Removal Service?


Homeowners and renters often find themselves burdened with piles of junk, debris, and excess waste – and for a variety of reasons. 


This could be because of a major landscaping project that has left them with mounds of old dirt, rock, or even brick, masonry, and concrete rubble. In a similar vein, the detritus and debris from a home renovation or remodel can leave one with more junk material than you could ever fit into a residential trash bin.


And, more often than not, circumstances conspire to bring people to a place where they have to finally get rid of all the accumulated junk and belongings they no longer want or need. Maybe it’s due to a major home cleaning project or because they have to move and relocate. 


Regardless of what or why, residential junk removal services are what’s needed for these instances.


Commercial junk removal service needs, on the other hand, can result from quite different circumstances. 


For example, when offices get a furnishing upgrade there will often be a need for old office furniture removal. Large metal materials and equipment that are no longer usable or needed may need to be hauled away as scrap.


And there are multiple scenarios involving storage facility cleanouts, foreclosure cleanouts, property management cleanouts, and construction debris removal needs.


For both residential and commercial clients, it’s good to know that Junk King San Diego is fully insured and bonded. And, for our commercial junk removal clients, they can have the benefit of using a business account with easy payment plans. 


What Should I Throw Away or Recycle?



junk removal service recycling


The sad truth is that we live in a society of not only abundance, but of thoughtless waste. And, while junk, garbage, and debris does need to be disposed of, we tent to get rid of most of our unwanted items by simply tossing them into the trash. 


On the bright side, we are getting much better at recycling more of our waste. And this is a good thing considering that up to 80 percent of everything folks in Alpine and the greater San Diego area toss out is recyclable.


Now, before you suffer a guilt pang and start searching your phone for a “recycling center near me” you should know that recycling is a bit of a complicate process. 


The commonly recycled household items like aluminum cans, glass jars and bottles, and wastepaper and cardboard – those are pretty simple. You put them in your residential recycling bin. But there are many other waste items that can also be recycled but getting that done is not so easy for many residents. 


Which is why Junk King San Diego specializes in recycling as much of everything that we pick up as possible. For example, we regularly recycle up to 60 percent or more of all the junk we haul away from Alpine CA, as well as other communities near San Diego. 


And we can take care of your recycling needs, as well. Because being green is in our DNA!
