Posted by Julian Torres, "JT" on Oct 1, 2015 12:56:47 PM


The property, or estate, liquidation business is usually supported by one of four unfortunate events in life. They are downsizing due to major lifestyle changes, death of a parent or other family member, divorce, and crippling debt. These events also often require estate cleanout services. And since the American population is quickly aging with almost 10,000 Americans turning 65 each day, there are greater numbers of folks experiencing a downsizing in lifestyle or – unfortunately – are passing away.

It is good to be the King of junk, in Columbus, Ohio.

Posted by Junk King on Jan 5, 2012 3:43:50 PM

Starting Out:

Almost 2 years ago we became the first Junk King located outside of California when we opened our junk removal and hauling business here in Dublin, a suburb of Columbus, Ohio. We take great pride in offering excellent service and great value to our customers.

Located near Columbus, Ohio:

Being located in Northern Franklin County means we are ideally situated to serve suburbs and towns in this area and we frequently serve Dublin, Powell, Columbus, Hilliard, Westerville, New Albany, and Grove City. We even offer junk removal and hauling services as far north as Marysville and the Polaris area (which is something our competitors can't say).

Environmentally Conscious Business:

A big factor in our success seems to be that we are "green." A lot of our customers say that our description as "eco-friendly" contributed to their choosing us and we think that is because more and more people are concerned about the environment. We recycle over 65% of the items we collect and we donate all re-usable items to charity, so the amount of trash removed that ends up in a landfill is very small. It feels good to be in a business that helps people and the planet. Call us and we'll pick up your bulk trash, donations, and recyclables fast and hassle-free!

Professional Furniture Disposal and Appliance Removal:

Many of our customers want help removing and disposing of large household objects especially big furniture and heavy, bulky appliances and we are always glad that people don't risk injury by moving such things on their own; aside from being experienced, fit and strong, we also bring tools and equipment to assist us and make sure it is as safe as possible for everyone. We frequently remove and dispose of couches, desks, stoves, refrigerators, freezers, washing machines, dryers, dishwashers, furnaces, hot water heaters, air conditioners, and a surprising number of pool tables. We have never had a serious injury on a job and we work hard to keep it that way!

Hot Tubs, Spas, and Above-Ground Pools:

In the warmer months it sometimes seems like we run a business dedicated to removing hot tubs. These calls are one of the tougher calls we get, aside from the weight and size of most hot tubs they may also be connected to plumbing and electricity and this is where Eric's experience installing water filtration systems really comes in handy because he understands all the dangers and the correct techniques needed to keep everyone (and everything) safe, dry and undamaged. The last thing our clients want to worry about is injury or damage and many hire us because they know we are experienced professionals.

Consumer Electronics:

We also get lots of calls to remove and recycle unwanted electronics like televisions and computers. As awareness about all the heavy metals and other toxic substances used in their manufacture grows, our services grows with it. It's just not environmentally sound to throw away an old TV. We will pick it up and make sure that it is disposed of properly. If it is a computer or any device with memory we will even make sure that the data is inaccessible so that it doesn't fall into the wrong hands. All electronics are properly sorted, recycled, and safely disposed of.

Experience with Sensitive Situations:

It's sad to say but we also sometimes get calls for sensitive and delicate situations like cleaning out estates, helping hoarders, and even foreclosures. In situations like that we exercise great care to act with sensitivity, professionalism and discretion. We think the least we can do is make a trying situation, like the death of a loved-one or the closing of a business, as painless and easy as possible.

Licensed, Bonded and Insured:

Our customers can rest assured that our employees all wear uniforms, and that we are licensed, bonded and insured. Our website features testimonials from some of our customers and we recently were awarded the Angie's list super service award. On our site you can also find our blog about junk hauling and trash removal in Columbus, Ohio.

Choosing the Right Appliances to Improve Your Home

Posted by Junk King on Sep 19, 2011 3:36:11 PM
What year was your washer manufactured? How about your dryer or your refrigerator? Do you know that appliances made today are far more efficient than those made even as little as five years ago? The electric, gas, or water bill you’re paying to run those old appliances could be cut in half if you upgrade to newer equipment. If you do it now, you might even be able to take advantage of subsidies and rebates being offered by manufacturers and state and federal government. Act fast though, that free money is running out quickly.
You'll soon realize that improving your home with new appliances is an investment, not an expense. However, before you start shopping for the new appliance, make sure you have someone ready to take away the old items for you. Junk King will be able to effortlessly get rid of that old washer, dryer, fridge, or any other type of appliance.
Let's get onto the buying. When you are selecting new appliances, ask lots of questions. The “Energy Star” rating is a good indicator that the appliance uses less electricity, gas, or water, but it’s not a guarantee of quality. If you have online resources, research brand names and pay attention to any warning signs about models that have had problems in the past. Going with an established brand name like Whirlpool or General Electric is a safe bet, but that doesn’t mean that some of the newer companies don’t have quality equipment. Shop around and compare. It’s a big investment, so don’t rush.
One of the things you’ll notice while shopping for new appliances is the difference in size. This is particularly true for kitchen appliances. The dishwasher or microwave you used to own took up a lot of space. The new ones not only do a better job, they’re smaller. You’ll have more counter and floor space after you upgrade, making your kitchen bigger and easier to move around in. You might actually start to spend more time there again and enjoy making meals for your family.
One of the great things about hiring Junk King for your appliance disposal needs is their ability to responsibly dispose of the junk items. Most appliances don't belong in the regular trash (or subsequently in a landfill). There are enough dead appliances in our landfills already, polluting the soil and taking up space that can never be used for anything else again. Beautifying your home with new appliances is a wonderful thing. Destroying the earth by not recycling the old appliances is not. Junk King will know how to get rid of these items by taking them to the proper facilities.
