Furniture removal is one of those things that sounds like a piece of cake – what could be easier than moving a couch? – until you actually try to move a few bulky pieces of furniture to the curb or nearby dumpster.
First, there’s the fact that you’re probably going to need some help. Calling on friends and family to help with furniture removal is certainly an option, but what if something gets scratched? What if people can’t make it?
That’s a lot of stress. For many, furniture removal comes a time when they’re trying to downsize, repurpose an old room, or get a move underway. Who needs the added pressure of renting a dumpster, truck, and telephoning the whole neighborhood for help?
Make One Call for Furniture Removal
The professional movers at Junk King know exactly what to do with outdated or otherwise unusable furniture. Even though certain upholstered pieces and mattresses can’t always make it to the landfill, they can usually be responsibly recycled or donated.
Having the wooden frame of your bed recycled and your mattress donated or responsibly discarded is really the way to go. Old mattresses can carry dust and other allergens and lack the right support.
Old mattresses are also hard to deal with at the landfill because they don’t crush like regular garbage and can actually clog machinery they’re so awkward to do away with. And who knows whether your municipal garbage pickup can take a lot of bulk items?
Eighty percent of your old mattress can be recycled, and California has now mandated recycling old mattresses with a $10.50 consumer fee at time of purchase. For getting rid of your old mattress, though, or sofas, couches, sofa beds, and chairs that have lasted past their prime, schedule a furniture removal appointment with Junk King. Instead of ringing all of your friends for furniture removal, make one call to Junk King.
Professional movers take a lot of precautions, but they also have liability and property insurance in case anything does go wrong. They also have the right equipment to efficiently get it done right the first time.
Relocating or Growing Your Business? Call Junk King
Junk King also helps commercial clients get rid of office furniture, cubicles, desks, and filing cabinets. If you’re ever tried lifting up a filing cabinet on your own – not recommended! – you know herculean a task it can be.
A steel, four-drawer cabinet weighs about 150 pounds, and the same one filled with paper is about 450 pounds. Even if you’ve had your Wheaties that morning, a few hundred pounds is really taking a risk. Get a professional to haul away clunky tool cabinets, armoires, bookcases, tables, and chairs.
Maybe you’re a strong guy reading this and thinking that you can handle any kind of furniture removal project that comes your way. Perhaps, but have you figured in the cost? Furniture removal usually means renting a truck or trailer and taking time out from work to haul everything away to a landfill or recycling center. The landfill, in turn, might charge a fee for taking so many bulky items.
Junk King is a convenient alternative since all you have to do is call or book online and either text a picture of the situation or describe the pieces that you’re thinking about having hauled away. Businesses should call as well to have desks, cubicles, old appliances (e.g., printers) and other kinds of e-waste taken off their hands.
