THE WONDERFUL AND GLAMOROUS WORLD OF JUNK KING!

Posted by frankc on Nov 8, 2013 9:58:32 AM

We just wrapped up our second annual Junk King hauling and recycling conference. A marvelous time was had by all, as franchisees from across the country gathered to touch base and learn how to better serve our customers. The company is getting some great national exposure by appearing on Hoarding: Buried Alive as of November 6th. Not only that, we've opened or are soon opening in Canada and Chicago, where we are known as Junk Works. There's 50 Junk King (or Junk Works) franchises now all over North America. We launched our new, easier-than-ever-to-use website recently.

JUNK KING LOCATIONS APPEAR ON TLC'S HOARDERS: BURIED ALIVE

Posted by barbara on Nov 6, 2013 3:41:51 PM
Junk King locations from across the country will be appearing on TLC's, Hoarding: Buried Alive this season.
For the franchise owners and employees of the company, aiding the individuals featured on the show is more than a chance to get a little face-time. It's local business aiding local residents in need. Helping those with the compulsive-obsessive disorder can be an emotional experience for everyone involved—junk collectors, hoarders, and the families of the hoarders. Virtually every employee at Junk King, from those at the corporate headquarters in California, to the local franchisee, has spent time collecting junk. Walking into any home where there is an extensive amount of clutter, even if it can't be termed “buried-alive” clutter, affects those who enter the space. Even the employees who answer the phone to book the appointments for “everyday hoarders” can sense the despair. Whether the call is from a family member or the individual who needs help, the hopeless attitude is easy to sense. Adding hope to the equation is the job of the workers. The local Junk King employees who actually collect the “stuff” know they must “tread lightly” in these situations because even the perception of a “callous attitude” can stop an intervention in its tracks.
Local Junk King franchises apparently have a knack for the kindness needed in the extreme situations on TLC's Hoarding: Buried Alive. While there is an eight-hour time limitation for actual removal of the items, Junk King usually gets a call back, after the completion of the filming to finish the job. This indicates that the local franchisees not only do a good job, but that they are sensitive to the issues involved with hoarding. Anyone who has watched even one Buried Alive broadcast has seen how difficult it can be for the hoarders to accept help. Junk King, a company with over 50 franchises throughout the U.S. and Canada, understands it is their responsibility to help hoarders without making it seem as if the home is being invaded.
Again, you can watch us work on this season of Hoarding: Buried Alive.
