The Go-To Furniture Removal & Couch Disposal Service in San Diego

san diego couch and furniture removal services

Imagine you’re driving along Hwy 52 between San Diego and Santee. At some point you glance over and notice an old, tattered couch sitting abandoned in a field. Not all that unusual perhaps, but it’s a sad picture of one of the ways not to do couch disposal.

In fact, as you probably already know, dumping your old furniture – including unwanted couches and sofas – is not only unsightly littering, but is illegal, too. It certainly is in San Diego.

So, what’s a person supposed to do with their old furniture like couches or recliners?

A simple call to Junk King San Diego is a great place to start.

Sofas and Couches and Chairs – Oh My!

In the course of life, we all tend to accumulate things and belongings. Among all the things that we collect through the years, furniture items are usually the largest. Unfortunately, much of our furniture doesn’t outlast us and, in fact, many pieces become worn and damaged after only a few years. 

So, what do we do? 

Usually, we buy new furniture to replace the old stuff. Which is fine except that we then have to figure out what to do with the old pieces. Sometimes they are still usable and can be improved with a bit of cleaning, patching, or painting. Other pieces, however, are beyond saving and simply need to be disposed of. 

But furniture removal can be a challenge, especially when it comes to couch disposal. 

If you’ve ever tried to lift a couch by yourself, you know how awkward it can be to move one around. Which means that, for starters, you’re going to need some help when it comes time to actually lift your old couch and carry it out of your house or apartment. 

Once you’ve done that, assuming you can, you still have to have a vehicle that can accommodate a couch. Take it from us – it’s probably not going to fit into a Prius! 

Exactly how big are couches?

According to an article at Dimensions.com the size of couches can vary, of course.

“Although couches can vary in size, the standard range is between 72”-96” (183-244 cm) for a three-seat sofa and 48”-72” (121-183 cm) for a loveseat. Ultimately, 84” (213 cm) is considered the typical length of a couch.”

So, if your old couch or sofa is a typical sized piece, then it is about seven feet long and close to three feet deep, or wide. That’s even too long to fit into a standard pickup truck bed with the tailgate closed. Of course, if you’ve tried this before then you already know all this. Which means you also know that loading and hauling a couch is a bear!

When it comes to furniture removal, you’re possibly looking at dining room tables, old chairs, and maybe even a credenza.These can all be large and heavy. In fact, most all furniture removal is difficult, labor-intensive, and requires a large vehicle if you want to do it yourself.

A Better Alternative for Furniture Removal and Couch Disposal

Here’s a thought: why not have someone else take care of your old furniture or couch disposal for you?

No, not your brother-in-law with the big 4X4 truck. While he might be willing, it’s quite likely you’ll still be doing most of the heavy lifting. And even if you do work it out and can borrow a large enough vehicle for hauling a couch or other old furniture, what are you going to do with it?

For most people, the first response is something like, “Take it to the dump.”  Well, for starters, the Miramar Landfill is the City of San Diego’s only active landfill. Depending on where you live, this can be a bit of a haul. And it will cost you. 

In addition, when it comes to most sofas, couches, recliners, and padded office chairs, there can be disposal problems because of the materials in the cushions. These are usually difficult to recycle since the materials are often toxic.

You could, of course, try donating or selling your furniture items if you feel they are in good shape and still usable. But unless your recipient agrees to come and pick up the couch or other furniture item, you may still have the problem of transporting your donation or “For Sale” item yourself.

And if it is simply only good for the dump, you still have to figure out how to get it there.

The good news is that the expert removal and disposal teams at Junk king San Diego have a long and reliable track record of removing and disposing of furniture like couches. In fact, you might say that we are known for it.

A better option is to choose the professional route and hire a furniture removal firm, like the folks at Junk King San Diego. With a professional team working for you, you can know that the job will be done quickly, efficiently, and competently. And you won’t have to deal with the landfill dumping fees or wait in line at the landfill. 

Not to mention that we do all the work!

We also make sure that appropriate items are either recycled or repurposed. This way you can still have the satisfaction of helping the environment, but without having to deal with figuring out where to take which furniture items, and so forth.

With our competent and well-trained team, we will ensure that every item that can and should be recycled is taken care of accordingly.

Got Business Furniture? We Take That, Too! 

Businesses need to get rid of old furniture for several reasons including relocating and expanding space. 

A big move often involves the acquisition of new furniture for the new surroundings, which often means old furniture that must be disposed of now. Although this typically consists of office chairs, file cabinets, and maybe even desks, it can also include couches and sofas. And the larger the business, the larger the volume of old furniture. 

You could, of course, have some of your own staff take time to load the old furniture in either a company vehicle or rented truck. This may seem like an economical approach until you realize that every hour your employees spend doing the work of removal and hauling professionals, they are not doing the work you hired them to do.

That “opportunity cost” means their time is actually far more expensive for your business than the cost of outsourcing the work would be.

Which is simply another way of saying, “Call Junk King San Diego!”

We can show up at your office or place of business and quickly, safely, and efficiently remove all your old, unwanted furniture items. Not only do we make it a painless and cost-effective decision, but we also make sure your old office furniture is properly disposed of, whether that means repurposing items or simply ensuring that they are properly recycled.

Did We Mention That Our Furniture Removal and Couch Disposal is Green?

The good news is that most furniture really can be recycled most of the time. And, at Junk King San Diego, recycling is a major part of what we do.

Here are a few good reasons for recycling your furniture and the benefits of it:

  • Conserves limited natural resources
  • Conserves up to 95% of the freshwater used to process many materials
  • Keeps waste materials from out of the oceans
  • Preserves forests which help to reduce CO2 emissions
  • Reduces the use of fossil fuel energy

It could be that your company is finding that it needs to downsize, which involves getting rid of some furniture. Or maybe you simply have to replace some of your office’s furniture items like the old couch. Whatever the reason and whatever the piece, recycling these pieces is a great choice.

Use Junk King For Safe Yard Waste Cleanup

san diego yard waste removal

[This blog was originally published on April 30, 2020 and updated on December 28, 2020. ]

Things have a tendency to pile up around the house.

This is especially true if you are spending more time in that house. And with the recurring “stay at home” orders, sheltering in place, and the occasional need to self-quarantine, many of us are doing exactly that. 

But this tendency for things to pile up is also true for our backyards. And that can require yard waste cleanup.

In fact, many people have been taking advantage of this time at home to reinvigorate their lawns, landscaping, and even their backyard gardens. And, depending on where you live, vegetable gardens have become a very popular project for families to take on.

DIY Projects In Your Outdoor Space Means Yard Waste Cleanup

The problem, however, is that all this yard work, landscaping, and possibly creating new gardens can mean clearing away space and creating large piles of dirt, rocks, sod, and assorted landscape junk and debris. You may even have some old lawn furniture, dilapidated sheds, or even old hot tubs that no longer work sitting in your yard and taking up space.

Not to mention presenting a potential safety issue.

Any junk, debris, or piles of yard waste can potentially have rusty nails, exposed screws, metal fittings, rebar, or even broken glass laying around. These things can be dangerous for kids, pets, and for unfortunate adults who happen to trip over or bump into them. 

This is the kind of yard waste that you want to get cleaned up fast, and yard waste cleanup is exactly the type of service that Junk King San Diego can provide.

New call-to-action

Some Additional Yard Waste Cleanup Precautions

Unless you’ve been asleep for most of 2020 you are painfully aware of the coronavirus pandemic and the complex assortment of restrictions that have been implemented to help protect everyone from COVID-19. These precautions, while presenting challenges for many businesses and for daily activities, have not prevented Junk King San Diego from removing junk.

In fact, our service is considered an “essential business” and we have gone to great lengths to accommodate the requirements of federal, state, and local health agencies. Junk King has put into place several precautions to make junk removal safe and worry-free for both our customers and our moving crews.

For example, following the recommendations of the CDC, all of our employees wear masks and gloves for every junk pickup. In the course of picking up and loading junk and debris, our teams maintain a reasonable social distance. For this reason, most of our pickups take place at the curbside whenever possible.

That means we can pick up your yard waste while you are safe on the porch!

However, when it comes to safe yard waste cleanup, we can still pick up everything wherever it happens to be piled up. That also includes dismantling any structure that you have in your backyard that you would like to bring down and dispose of.

Here’s what we’ve been incorporating into daily operations to adapt:

100% TOUCHLESS PICKUP – We’ll maintain a 6-foot distance from every customer. Our haulers can pick up curbside, never entering your home.

 

VIRTUAL ESTIMATES – Send photos to the Junk King team for a touchless price quote.

 

NO CONTACT PAYMENT – You can pay for our services over the phone to limit social exposure.

 

PROTECTIVE GEAR – Gloves, masks and hand sanitizers are provided on every truck used to protect you and our haulers.

 

At Junk King San Diego we have implemented touchless, no-contact junk removal practices that incorporate safety steps to keep everyone safe during this time of coronavirus concerns.

Safe Yard Waste Cleanup Means More Than Grass and Leaves

The types of materials that Junk King can pick up and remove makes for quite a long list.

For yard waste that can include anything from palm fronds to gravel, concrete rubble to old lumber, and even broken lawnmowers, trimmers, and hot tubs! 

And, of course, grass, leaves, tree trimmings, and other organic waste and debris.

But it’s good to know that Junk King San Diego can remove and dispose of far more than what you’ve piled up in the yard. If you are planning on having us come to clean up your outdoor waste piles, why not have us take that old, unused junk still clogging up your garage, attic, or tool shed?

In fact, we can take just about anything except hazardous waste, including:

  • Old furniture
  • Televisions
  • Used appliances
  • Old electronics
  • Trash and household garbage
  • Mattresses 
  • Refrigerators
  • and even construction waste

Essentially, if it’s something you no longer want or need, simply show us where it is and we’ll take care of it with our touchless, no-contact junk removal service.

What Does It Cost for Yard Waste Cleanup?

We know that simply saying, “It depends.” isn’t what you really want to know, but it’s true: the amount you pay is based solely on the amount of space your yard waste takes up in our truck.

This is how we maintain our policy of affordable pricing.

Our prices are always based on how much space a customer’s items take up in our trucks get packed up and never on how heavy the load is, like some companies do. This can make a big difference for you, especially when you are getting rid of large piles of rock and dirt!

And we work hard to ensure that our prices are better than any other licensed and insured, eco-friendly, recycling-based junk removal company in our trade area.

As we noted here, many junk hauling firms charge by weight. This is actually a disadvantage for customers with particularly heavy junk items such as old appliances or masonry rubble. You will never have that problem with Junk King San Diego.

Because we only charge by the amount of space your junk takes up in our trucks, this means savings for you and simple, transparent pricing.

And, along with great pricing, we always offer free estimates so you don’t have to wait to see what your junk will cost to be hauled off. And we also guarantee to beat any written estimate.

You can try it yourself by using our free pricing tool and estimator.

This tool can give you an estimate on your own by simply adding up the items you want us to haul away. Our pricing estimator will give you an online estimate of the actual price our friendly team will provide you with once they’re onsite.

It’s incredibly easy to set up your junk removal session with Junk King over the phone or online. And, if you book online, you can start saving right away with an automatic $20 off your junk removal job.

How To Handle Old Mattress Disposal

[This blog has been recently updated with new information. It was originally published on Oct 23, 2017]

junk removal company in san diego

According to the website Statistic Brain, the average household in the U.S. only keeps their mattresses for seven years before deciding to replace it.

Why do they choose to get a new mattress? There are a few things that happen to most people that cause them to transition to a new mattress, often a larger one. 

Two of the most common reasons are couples moving in together or getting married. Previously someone may have been using a Twin-size mattress or a Queen-size mattress and may need to consolidate or upgrade to a bigger mattress when taking the next step in their relationship with their significant other.

Interestingly, however, while one might think that a move up to a more luxurious sleeping space like a King or even a California King would be the norm, the number one mattress used in the U.S. is a Queen-size mattress.

Of the over half-dozen mattress sizes offered on the market, a Queen-size mattress is used in almost 50 percent of American homes with the next most popular size being the standard King mattress at just 19 percent of sleepers. Sorry, Californians, but the California King is nowhere near as popular! 

And another good reason for a new mattress is the family “addition.”

Eventually, the time comes to move a child from a crib or child’s bed to a twin or even a full-size mattress. And the more kids that come along, the more mattresses you need.

On an interesting side note, although most people in America are sleeping on Queen-size mattresses, the most popular size sold in the United States is the Twin-size mattress. Of all the sizes available, Twin mattresses represent over 30 percent of the market share.

Unfortunately, getting older is another common reason people choose to get new mattresses. Aging causes many people to look for a new and different mattress to better accommodate their changing sleep needs as they get older.

But the most common reason for buying a new mattress is because the old one has finally worn out. Mattresses do get old and, when they do, they start showing signs of breaking down, which can be uncomfortable and lead to poor sleep and aching bodies.

Need to get rid of your mattress ASAP? Book Your Appointment Now!

After You Bring Home That New Mattress

mattress disposal san diegoThe most important thing you have to consider when buying a new mattress is not just how it feels but also the return policy. This is an investment in a piece of furniture that you will be spending up to one-third of the next eight years on. The difference between you getting a good night’s sleep and being restless could be in that mattress.

That’s why it is essential it needs to be a perfect fit. It won’t feel great the first couple of nights. In fact, it may take up to 2 to 3 weeks for that mattress to conform to your body. That’s a long time you should allow for the adjustment period.

If after that time it still feels “off,” then you should think about swapping it out. That’s why a 30-day return policy is so vital. A 45-day return policy would be even better! The other thing you need to consider is how to handle your old mattress disposal. That’s easily taken care of with one call to Junk King San Diego.

Check out our mattress removal checklist.

What to Do About Mattress Disposal in San Diego

Mattresses are one of the most popular things that Junk King San Diego takes from homes and apartments. In extreme cases, some of those mattress removals involve a bedbug infestation. It will be helpful to let Junk King know that’s what you’re dealing with because they have to take special precautions. But it won’t be a problem and it will only be a small extra charge.

We understand that it might seem to you that you’re going a bit overboard hiring a pair of movers and a truck just to get rid of an old mattress. But instead, think of it as a chance to get rid of all the rest of your unwanted clutter.

And no worries there! We can put our two-man crew to work loading up their truck with the clothes you’re no longer wearing and don’t want, all the old toys no longer being played with, the dozens of books you’ve already read at least twice – oh! –  and the exercise equipment that you used to use when it was new but haven’t really worked out with since.

And you probably have plenty of old electronics, or e-waste, that you could get rid of as well.

What about the backyard? At Junk King San Diego, we’re not limited to just taking away clutter and junk from inside your house. We can help you clear out your garage, your backyard storage shed, and even your backyard!

In other words, when you decide you need to get rid of your old mattress, take a good look at the rest of your unwanted junk. And, when you’re ready, you need to bring in Junk King San Diego.

Junk King San Diego offers professional mattress and bedspring removal services. Disposing of used mattresses, box springs, and bedframes by yourself can be difficult because they often cannot be dumped into our local landfills. One reason for this is that mattresses can contain chemicals that are harmful to the environment.

The good news for you is that Junk King San Diego provides a full-service mattress disposal service that is an efficient and environmentally friendly way to recycle your mattress and box springs that help keep our environment protected and removes your old mattress for you.

[Related Content: Mattress Recycling Infographic]

Yes, You Can Recycle Mattresses. Really.

And this is a good thing, too, since it is also true that not all mattress retailers will take your old mattress for you after you’ve purchased a new one from them. And, with the multitude of online mattress shops doing business today, getting rid of your old mattress is a job that often falls on you.

e0MCi-Y8slbSPCrggWKi_DCA0oZUiWcoTCd7UP7Ejbg

We strongly urge you not to sneak off in the middle of the night with your old mattress strapped to the top of your car and try to simply dump it somewhere outside of town near the Border. Not only is that a bad move for the environment, but it is also against the law in San Diego and illegal no matter where you live in California. Not to mention that there are far better options for handling old mattress disposal.

“Okay,” you may be thinking, “But I don’t want it taking up space in my garage!” 

Or maybe it’s your spare bedroom or even a rented storage unit. We get it. Maybe you’re thinking you might be able to use it as a “spare bed” for overnight guests. More than likely, however, you’ve got the guest room thing covered already. 

So, the old mattress still needs to be removed somehow. The good news is that it’s easy to get rid of your old mattress legally, efficiently, and in an environmentally safe manner.

That’s because almost 90 percent of a standard mattress is recyclable, and the old materials can then be reused to manufacture new products. In fact, even the springs, foam, upholstery, wood pieces, and pretty much the entire box springs, too, if you need to get rid of one of those, too. 

If you have a suitable vehicle, really like hauling big, awkward, and heavy objects like your old mattress, you could possibly recycle it yourself. 

Once you manage to haul it out, load it up, and secure it properly, you’ll need to know if there is a recycling center near you that accepts used mattresses. There are a few good online resources such as Earth911.org or ByeByeMattress.com with tools to search for these types of recycling centers.

But wait! You really don’t have to do ANY of the mattress removal work!

The fastest and easiest way is to call Junk King San Diego. We are a professional mattress removal service and we will do all the hard work for you –  and be assured that your old mattress will be disposed of in the best manner possible.

Getting Help With Property Cleanouts In San Diego

property cleanout san diego

If you are a property manager, landlord, real-estate agent or even a homeowner in San Diego, you will likely need to facilitate a property cleanout at some point.

It’s estimated that 80 percent of people who move do so between April and September, which is referred to as peak season for movers. And it can be a peak season for property cleanouts, too.

Fortunately, Junk King San Diego is here to help with our professional property cleanout service.

 

What is a Property Cleanout Service?

A property cleanout can be needed for several reasons and one of the most common is for rental properties. That’s because rental homes and apartments regularly require cleanouts

There’s a reason for that. 

In the United States as a whole, for example, there are over 44,000,000 renter-occupied households and that represents about a third of the population. While there are certainly a large number of single-family homes being rented, a vast majority of these renter-occupied households are apartments.

Just in California, for example, there are over 6,600,000 people who rent apartments, or close to 20 percent of the state’s population. And, in San Diego, almost 47 percent of the more than 490,000 households are renters according to 2017 Census ACS data.

And these folks tend to move out frequently.

In fact, close to 25 percent of all occupants currently renting their home or apartment had lived in a different location the year before. People move for a variety of reasons, but the number one reason people move out is due to job transfers, which account for almost one out of 10 moves.

But here’s the thing: while most prior tenants may leave a rental property clean and empty, there are always those who leave things behind.

And not just small things. Often it is old furniture, unwanted exercise equipment, appliances, used mattresses, piles of old clothes, and even garbage. In other words, they leave behind large amounts of junk that must be removed and disposed of.

However, property cleanouts are needed for other types of properties, as well.

Property rental professionals and property managers also work with short-term rental homes, vacation properties, duplexes, triplexes, and other types of leased properties. Like house and apartment renters, these tenants can also fill rental spaces with large amounts of furniture and belongings, some of which get left behind when they vacate.

And, like apartment managers, these landlords and property managers can get overwhelmed with the tasks of property cleanouts and junk hauling.

Learn More About Items We Take

 

Who Needs Property Cleanouts?

As we noted previously, people are constantly relocating and, in fact, the Census Bureau estimates that almost 13 percent of renters move each year.

But the problem is that none of those vacated properties can be leased again until any junk that was left behind has been removed and the property is cleaned. And, as a property manager or landlord, you know that each day a rental property sits unoccupied is a day that goes by with no rental income.

Are you a property manager or landlord who needs to get rid of junk left by the previous tenants in one of your rental units?

There’s nothing more frustrating than having to conduct a property cleanout of someone else’s stuff, especially when it’s an entire house, apartment, or office that is full of junk. Before you can hire a professional company to clean the building, all the junk and trash has to be cleaned out and removed.

Property management is much easier if you have a quick and affordable junk removal service standing by to help you out. The good news is that Junk King San Diego is your “go-to” partner for property cleanouts for homes, apartments, and other rental properties!

And we know that businesses often need property cleanouts, too. Especially smaller businesses that lack the time, personnel, and resources to take care of the cleanout and then the junk removal, hauling, and disposal.

That’s why having the option of outsourcing these tasks to a dedicated and professional property cleanout service is a huge benefit. And that’s what you get with Junk King San Diego. 

Remember, we can handle almost any and every kind of junk (except hazardous waste.)

 

Property Cleanouts and Being Green

At Junk King San Diego we believe that landfills for junk are a last resort.

This is why our standard method of disposal starts with recycling, reusing, and repurposing as much material as possible, up to 60 percent of it, in fact. 

Being green isn’t some marketing gimmick slogan because, when Junk King was founded in 2005, we were the first recycling-based junk removal service in the United States. And we have continued to recycle, repurpose and reuse as much as possible everything that we pick up at every location.

And that includes San Diego! 

A little-known fact is that most “junk” is actually composed of mostly recyclable materials. That means that just because you can’t put it into your residential recycling bin, doesn’t mean it can’t be recycled or reused.

This is why, at Junk King San Diego, we are committed to disposing of your unwanted junk with proper recycling and disposal methods as much as possible. 

And, if you’re getting rid of working appliances or furniture items that are in good condition, we work to find a new home for them using our relationships with local organizations.

So, for a local, professional, and eco-friendly property cleanout service, Junk King San Diego is your best choice.

How A Junk Removal Service Can Help You In San Diego

junk removal san diego

If you’ve been searching online for junk removal services, there’s no need to search any further! That’s because we’ve got you covered here at Junk King San Diego.

In fact, no matter where you live, when it comes to junk removal, no other company compares to Junk King. This is because no other junk removal company offers better service and better value.

What is a Junk Removal Service?

Sometimes it seems that life often leaves you with unwanted junk. Maybe it’s because you’ve accumulated a large amount of belongings over time. Perhaps you’ve inherited or been given some things you no longer want or need. And, maybe, you’re in the midst of a home cleaning or home improvement project that’s generating a lot of junk and debris.

However, you end up with it, that junk has to be removed somehow. And that’s where a junk removal service comes in.

If you live in the San Diego area, you already know that disposing of unwanted junk is no picnic. Anything that can’t go into your residential trash or recycle bins has to be removed and hauled off somewhere. And that typically means the landfills.

But how simple is that for the average resident?

According to the CountyOffice.org website,

“There are 6 Landfills in San Diego County, California, serving a population of 3,283,665 people in an area of 4,206 square miles. There is 1 Landfill per 547,277 people, and 1 Landfill per 700 square miles.”

Simply put, this means that every time you want to take a load of junk to the nearest landfill, you are only one of more than half a million residents that may be doing the same thing. The bottom line is that doing it yourself is both costly and time-consuming, not to mention unsustainable. 

Who Needs Junk Removal?

Regardless of your age, no matter if you’re single or not, and despite your best efforts at keeping your personal belongings to a minimum – if that’s your style – you are probably going to find yourself needing junk removal service at some point.

There are many situations that leave folks with more things than they need, such as when they decide to “downsize” to a smaller house when they retire or – sadly – after a divorce or a family member passes away.

While these are some of the harsher realities of life, the end result is that they leave people with the unfortunate task of having to get rid of things.

Businesses need junk removal, too. Especially smaller businesses that lack the time, personnel, and resources to handle their own junk removal, hauling, and disposal. Having the option of outsourcing these tasks to a dedicated and professional junk removal service is a huge benefit.

When your junk is just small stuff, you can usually get rid of it in your household trash bins or workplace dumpster. You might even be able to donate it. But, if you have large amounts of junk or simply large junk items, that’s when you need the services of a reputable and reliable junk removal company.

What Items Our Junk Removal Service Takes

At Junk King San Diego, we take just about anything you want to get rid of. Whether it’s stuff from your house, or excess equipment and office furniture from your place of business, we’ve got you covered.

And another one of the many ways we save you money, while providing world class service, is by using junk removal trucks that are at least 20 percent larger than those of our competitors.

  • Furniture Removal
  • Television Disposal & Recycling
  • Yard Waste Removal
  • Foreclosure Clean Outs
  • Appliance Removal
  • Hot Tub Disposal
  • E-Waste Disposal

No matter what type of junk you have, or how big or how small, the team at Junk King San Diego will review the job with you, confirm your free estimate, and haul away your items quickly, safely, and efficiently.

Remember, we can handle most any and every kind of junk (except hazardous waste.)

How Our World-Class Junk Removal Works 

What do you do when you have no more storage space? Do you find yourself playing Tetris ® with your stuff, moving it from one room or closet to another, trying to make it fit? It’s quite likely that you need to get rid of a lot of the excess stuff you no longer need or want.

And it’s likely that you can’t get rid of it by yourself.

Why is that? Well, for one thing, you probably need a larger vehicle than you own. Like a truck. And, while you could ask to borrow a truck from your brother-in-law or a friend – or even rent a truck for a day – you still have to do all the hard work. 

Of course, you could also look into hiring some local guy with a truck who makes “dump runs.” But even that can be fraught with problems.

But why consider any of these options when you could easily hire a local professional junk hauling firm here in San Diego? Not only will you avoid the risk of damaging someone else’s vehicle (and having to clean it afterwards!), but you can know the job will be done quickly, efficiently, and completely.

And you won’t have to do the heavy lifting and hauling!

In addition, you won’t be waiting in line at the landfill paying municipal dumping fees. And, speaking of landfills, the fact is that not all junk needs to go to the dump anyway!

Why Our Junk Removal Service is Green

Everyone agrees that recycling is important.

This is why, at Junk King San Diego, our standard method of disposal starts with recycling, reuse, and repurposing as much material as possible. 

In fact, when Junk King was founded in 2005, we were the first recycling-based junk removal service in the United States. And we have continued to recycle, repurpose and reuse as much as possible everything that we pick up at every location.

Being green isn’t simply a “feel good” slogan for us – it’s a foundational part of what we do. 

Did you know that most junk is made of many recyclable materials? And, just because you can’t put all of it into your residential recycling bin, doesn’t mean it can’t be recycled or reused. At Junk King San Diego, we are committed to disposing of your unwanted junk and using proper recycling and disposal methods as much as possible. 

And, if you’re getting rid of working appliances or furniture items that are in good condition, we work to find a new home for them using our relationships with local organizations.

If you want a local, professional, and eco-friendly junk removal service, Junk King San Diego is your first choice. Choosing us means you’ll receive efficient, safe and “green” junk removal and hauling services along with the peace of mind that your old items are being reused or recycled properly.

What Our Junk Removal Service Costs

Along with keeping our landfills free of more old junk items, we work hard to ensure that our prices are better than any other licensed and insured, eco-friendly, recycling-based junk removal company.

Because many junk hauling firms charge by weight, it’s a disadvantage for customers with particularly heavy junk items such as old appliances or masonry rubble. Not so with Junk King San Diego. In fact, we charge simply by the amount of space your junk takes up in our trucks. This means savings for you and simple, up-front pricing.

In addition, we always offer free estimates of your junk removal so you don’t have to wait to see what your junk will cost to be hauled off. And we also guarantee to beat any written estimate.

Try it yourself! 

Use our free pricing tool and estimator so you can get an estimate on your own by simply adding up the items you want us to haul away. Our pricing estimator will give you an estimate online of the final price our friendly team will confirm for you once they’re onsite.

Junk Removal For Dulzura Is Just A Phone Call Away

Do you put your cell phone contacts into categories? There is an ability with smartphones to categorize specific phone numbers as friends, family, work or service professionals.

How many service professionals do you think you have in your contact list? One number that should definitely be added is the number for Junk King San Diego.

That is the time to call in Junk King.

A Plan Of Action

That call you make to Junk King will trigger a plan of action that is can result in all your unwanted items being hauled away in a single session. That is always the mission for Junk King. Each appointment has a “standard” crew of two strong movers. That is the moving team that can take care of just about any type of rubbish removal need in a home.

You should never have to worry about the cost of that extra labor. That is because with Junk King you won’t be charged for that extra labor. You will always be charged the same flat rate whether you are getting rid of just a few pieces of furniture or an entire household furnishings. That flat rate is always based on how your stuff will be packed on the back of the truck. One price covers everything. And you will know what that price is before the work begins.

Say Goodbye To The Rubbish From Your Chula Vista Home

Getting rid of big rubbish items from your Chula Vista home might seem like an impossible task. After all, if you could have gotten rid of that item sooner, then it would be long gone. The challenge of getting rid of those big pieces is that you need movers and a truck. Those aren’t easy to come by on you own but they are extremely easy when you call in Junk King San Diego. Not only can we help you say goodbye to the rubbish from your Chula Vista home but we can do it the safe way.

Masks On

The team from Junk King will be showing up at your property for the schedule appointment wearing their distinct red shirt and masks. That is part of the health guidelines that all businesses are adopting to keep their staff and customers safe. In addition to the masks, the Junk King teams will be practicing social distancing. You can just point to what you want removed and the Junk King team will pick it up on the spot. That is what they’ve always done; they’ll just be doing it from six feet away!

What hasn’t changed for Junk King is their dedication to responsible disposal of all the things that they collect. That involves the option of dropping items off at a recycling center or a charity. The last place Junk King wants to go is a landfill. Any day that they can avoid that trip is a good day for Junk King!

Junk King also remains committed to help making this rubbish removal process an affordable one. Their pricing policy is based on how the truck gets packed up. The more stuff that the crew can fit into a small space, the less you will be paying. You might think your stuff fills up half the truck but the Junk King crew can pack it into a smaller space. That will have you paying the lower end of the price scale every time.

When you’re ready to say goodbye to the rubbish from your Chula Vista home, you’re ready to call in Junk King San Diego.

Use Junk King For Safe Junk Hauling In Alpine

The “new normal” for any interaction outside of your home is to ask, “Is it safe?” It is not just enough to hire a service professional who has been licensed and insured. It is now vital that you work with a company who is following safety guidelines provided by state health authorities. That even includes junk hauling. Thankfully, Junk King San Diego was out in front of the COVID crisis and was quick to adopt those guidelines. This means you can hire Junk King with confidence to take care of all the junk hauling from your Alpine home. We’ll get it done and keep everyone safe.

You Make the Call

The social distancing and wearing masks are the foundation for the new safety procedures. At Junk King, all of our crews will be masked up and gloved up. As for social distancing, Junk King is happy to offer curbside pickup for all the items that you can bring down to your porch, driveway or sidewalk. If there happens to be a particular item that needs specialized lifting from inside the house, then we’ll find a way to get it done while maintaining those social distancing barriers. You shouldn’t give it a second thought!

Junk King also can conduct the estimates and the payments over the phone as well. The crews need to see all the things that you’re getting rid of to size up just how it will fit onto the truck. Their goal remains to get as much into as little space as possible. That will keep you paying the low end of the price scale. The estimate is also guaranteed. If you have an estimate from another company for the same junk hauling, then Junk King will match that price.

These days you don’t want to take chances. For fast and affordable junk hauling in Alpine, you’ll be safe with Junk King San Diego on the job.

 

The Smart Approach For Home-Schooling

Many parents across San Diego are discovering what it is like to be a teacher. That’s because they are deeply involved in home-schooling for the first time. Thankfully, the school districts have provided all of the class assignments that can help keep parents on track. But there is a lot more going on than just following the assignments. Here are some ways that you can make sure your home-schooling is productive:

Wake Up the Same Time

Getting ready for home-schooling should follow the same routines as when your kids go to their actual school. That means waking up at the same time, having breakfast and getting dressed for the day. After that, you can decide when the school session should start around the house. It will also help the kids to go to bed at the same time that they are used to. Technically, the “it’s a school night” rules are still in effect!

Set up a Classroom

By now, your kids probably have all of their books from school. Each day, you may be printing out assignments from their classes. They might also still be the need for using maps and a bulletin board to help supplement some of the lessons. This is why you should set up a classroom area in your house that is separate from the TV room. It could mean sacrificing your dining room for the duration of the home-schooling. Setting up this special zone will help the kids get focused because they know when they are sitting at their “desk” it is time to get the work done.

Make Time for Recess

If you think back to your school days, then you probably remember recess as some of the best time of the school day. Your kids are no different. That is why you need to make sure they get their recess time while at home. Recess shouldn’t be just taking a break from the books but could also include going outside to play for a little bit.

Keep Them Cleaning the House

It is also important that you keep the kids on their chore schedule. This is not an extended vacation. That means all the things they were doing to help around the house needs to continue. In fact, you should take this opportunity while everyone is home to go through the entire house and decide which items can be tossed out. A thorough decluttering like that will go a long way towards creating a positive living environment. Junk King San Diego is standing by to help facilitate pickup of all your unwanted items. We have created some new procedures that are meant to safeguard our workers and our customers. The junk removal work needs to go on an Junk King San Diego can help do it the right way.
