How Junk King Washington DC Makes Furniture Removal A Breeze

How Junk King Washington DC Makes Furniture Removal A Breeze

Okay, so maybe you didn’t win the Virginia Lottery and decide to give your home a makeover. But perhaps that hefty tax refund finally showed up and you invested in a ton of new furniture. It’s been far too long and the stuff you own was getting shabby anyway.

Or it may just be that you’ve been replacing furniture pieces here and there over the years, but you never got around to getting rid of the old pieces.

We get it. Furniture removal isn’t the simplest or easiest home DIY project you can take on.

Which is why Junk King Washington DC specializes in residential furniture removal.


When Your Furniture Has Seen a Few Too Many Years Around the HouseWhen Your Furniture Has Seen a Few Too Many Years Around the House

No matter where you happen to live in the Capital region, whether that’s Davidsonville, Upper Marlboro, Brandywine, Hyattsville, or Annapolis, furniture removal is never really easy. And, in fact, it can be quite difficult.

When you consider that even solid wood dining room chairs weigh 25 pounds or more and are a bit awkward to pick up and carry. And that dining room table you’ve since the last time the (former) Washington Redskins won a Superbowl? Try anywhere between 180 to 250 pounds.

And we haven’t even considered the living room!

The average sofa? Somewhere between 280 to 350 pounds. And Dad’s favorite power recliner, the one with the motor so it goes back with the push of a button, weighs in at around 200 pounds or less.

Of course, it’s not just the weight of furniture pieces that makes old furniture removal so difficult. It’s the fact that so many furniture items are large, bulky, and difficult to get hold of. Which, of course, is why there are so many tips and tricks for moving them, not to mention an array of DIY moving tools and gear available.

But even with some muscular assistance and a few handy furniture dollies and carrying straps, furniture removal remains a job that is never simple, easy, or fast.

So, if you have more than a piece or two to get rid of, what are your other options?

No Truck, No Help – Big Problem!

It would be so much easier if you had a pickup truck and a couple of capable helpers at home to take care of this task for you.

But not everyone in the Washington DC area owns a pickup truck. And there are quite a few residents who not only do not have others living with them who can manage lifting furniture, but they are past the point of hefting sofas and other furniture items themselves.

So, the next best thing is to find someone you know who does own a truck and then hope they are able and willing to help you move your old furniture.

And, while that may be a viable option for some, it’s not going to be the case for many others.

The local waste management company quite likely has a bulky item pick-up service that you may be able to schedule with them. For example, the District of Columbia Department of Public Works (DPW) notes on their website that bulky item pickup is available for customers, but you have to call 311 first for an appointment and then,

“Put your bulk items out no earlier than 6:30 pm the day before and no later than 6 am on the day they are to be collected.”

Oh, and by the way, you could receive a sanitation violation ticket if your items are in the public space at any time other than during your collection appointment time. And remember: no more than seven items will be collected per appointment.

Really – there’s got to be an easier way…

One Call to Junk King Can Make Your Furniture Removal Job a BreezeJunk King Washington DC

We understand that some people don’t want to pay for something that feels like a simple DIY task. But we also understand that not all do-it-yourself jobs are easy. And the truth is that even disposing of old furniture yourself is going to incur some expense.

With gas at all-time highs and with rising landfill fees that are between $70 to almost $90 per ton at many facilities, it doesn’t take long for the costs to add up.

And you still have to do all the heavy lifting, loading, and unloading. Not to mention enjoying a long drive and an afternoon at the dump.

All of which is just a few of the reasons why calling a professional and reliable furniture removal firm is really your best option.

Choosing a trustworthy furniture removal company means much more than looking online and picking the one with the lowest prices. There are some other key factors to consider before you decide on the best company for your old furniture removal.

Besides, pricing is not only different for different companies, but the way they charge for their services varies among companies, as well.

For example, many junk removal companies only charge by weight, which means you’re going to pay far more for a few heavy pieces than you would for several lighter pieces that take up far more space in a truck. Not at Junk King! We only charge for how much space your junk – regardless of how heavy it – takes up in our trucks.

Not only that, but we also want you to know beforehand what your load is going to cost you. That’s why at Junk King we offer free estimates as a part of our service. You can get a free estimate online or by calling or texting us. And, if you prefer, our expert team will provide you with a free written estimate when they show up on time, as promised, at your home.

The bottom line is that you should never let the lowest price be the main deciding factor when choosing a furniture removal company. Customer service and evident professionalism are valuable features that can make an enormous difference in your furniture removal experience.

So, if you want to get real value for your money you want to be sure to hire an efficient and professional company with complimentary reviews and a solid reputation.
