Junk Removal for Stockton Realtors

Over the last couple of months, the city of Stockton has taken a hit in terms of its economy. But there are some “green shoots” showing that the city might be on the mend. The restructuring of its finances is going to help shore up the area and folks will soon find that Stockton is a great place to live, work and raise a family. To do that, they are going to need a place to live. A depressed housing market can actually reveal a silver lining for potential new homeowners. This is because a lot of those homes that have been foreclosed upon are in need of a little TLC to bring them back to life. A savvy realtor understands this and that’s why they make an alliance with a company like Junk King.

Junk King is the Stockton junk removal specialist who helps folks living in all kinds of environments clear out the clutter. They also assist business owners with opening up storage space in warehouses and offices. Basically, if there are mounds of garbage to be tossed out then Junk King is the team to get the job done right. In the real estate market, Junk King can swarm down to an abandoned home and clean it of debris in one afternoon. Often this requires cleaning out the place from floor to ceiling. Gone will be all the drapes, furniture, carpet and appliances left behind by the previous tenant. All of those items are probably in pretty bad shape otherwise those previous tenants would have taken them with them. It’s not a worry for Junk King Stockton.

If it looks like the job will require more than the typical two-man Junk King crew then you can arrange to have even more help. The great thing is that you’re not going to be charged for labor costs. Junk King charges by volume; as in how much volume the junk will take up on their truck. This assessment is made by a Junk King Stockton supervisor who will come out to the property (free of charge) to look over the junk and make an estimate. Once you agree on the price, the removal appointment is scheduled. In some cases that could even happen in the same day! Junk King likes to move fast.

After the property is clear of trash you can bring in whatever painters or home staging experts you deem necessary to get the property market ready. Bottom line: don’t be put off by a first impression. If there is garbage on the property, let Junk King worry about that. You worry about how you’re going to spend your commission!

Stockton Air Conditioner Disposal

Washing machines, dryers, refrigerators, ovens, water heaters and air conditioners all fall under the category of “white goods.” These are the items that can be recycled for their metal. However, they can’t just be melted down. They have to be properly dismantled. That’s because all of those items potentially contain some form of hazardous material that shouldn’t be released into the environment. These materials can include: encapsulated polychlorinated biphenyls; Freon, Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), hydro-chlorofluorocarbons (HCFC) and other refrigerants; mercury in switches and temperature control devices; Di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate in metal-encased capacitors; used oil from compressors and transmissions. Pretty scary sound stuff isn’t it?

Here in Stockton there is a curbside recycling program for the white goods but it comes with several problems. First of all, they will only accept what they deem as small appliances. This means anything bigger than a microwave is ineligible. Secondly, you have to call up for an appointment for the pickup. When was the last time you had to go to the DMV? It’s the same thing here: long waits being put on hold and then transferred all over the place. Even if you make it through all of that red tape, you’ve still got to get that item down to the curb. No small task for some folks. Is there a better way? Yes, and that would be with hiring Junk King Stockton.

Junk King is the Stockton business that makes junk removal a snap. Whether you’re tossing out an old fridge or lumpy mattress, Junk King will have your back. Speaking of backs, you won’t be using yours to do any lifting. That’s because the Junk King crew will do all the work. Forget about dragging something out of your home. The JK crew will come right to where the junk is and take it from there. What could be better than that?

As for the pricing, Junk King charges by the amount of space your stuff will take up on their truck. You’re not paying for labor costs, travel time or dumping fees just truck space. If it turns out that the estimate they provide to you is wrong and your junk takes up more space it won’t matter; you’ll just be paying the estimate. That’s a very sweet deal by anybody’s reckoning.

Junk King Stockton  is also dependable. They won’t keep you waiting all day for their appointment like some other service companies. If you’re ready to get serious about properly disposing of your air conditioner and any other bulky items then Junk King is the only way to go. Give them a call today to see how that can turn your home into a junk free zone.
