Depending on where you live, the weather is still good, but the days are getting shorter and winter is coming. Time to get rid of all that junk!
Regardless of whether you are an apartment renter, a homeowner, a contractor, or a business owner, junk removal is a regular part of life and is often a challenging task.
Everyone Has Junk Sometime But What Do You Do With It?
Construction projects generate trash, debris, and waste materials. And all of this must be cleaned up regularly throughout the course of the job. Contractors have to arrange for all this to be hauled off and disposed of. However, it is a task that is tedious and time-consuming.
And it is often the job no one wants to do and no one really has the time to do it.
For real estate agents, there is often old furniture, appliances, and assorted junk and trash that needs to be removed from an otherwise vacant property. If the former homeowners didn't take of this task, the junk needs to be picked up, hauled off, and properly disposed of or recycled.
Business owners often relocate, or remodel their facilities, or carry out major clean-ups on a regular basis. Whatever the activity, they will generate trash and unwanted junk. And someone needs to clean up, haul away, and dispose of it all.
Homeowners and renters regularly find themselves with junk that needs to be gotten rid of, often junk that is too large to be put into their residential recycling or trash bins. And these folks usually don't have employees to task with this chore!
So, the question for many contractors, real estate professionals, and business owners, and others is, "Is there a better way to handle the task of junk hauling?"
Hauling Your Own Junk Can Be a Pain. Literally.
You have far more important things to do than hauling junk.
“Yes, but it’s just one time a year.” you might say.
Perhaps, but have considered the potential downside of having to haul your own junk, debris, or trash?
Here’s just a few:
- Possible injuries or strained muscles and backs
- The added cost of having to rent a truck, or borrow one for the job
- Figuring out the logistics of what can be disposed of and what must be recycled
- Learning the proper methods and locations for disposal
Not only that, some of your junk and debris can contain hazardous wastes and several local, state, and federal rules require these to be properly handled and disposed of.
The best way to avoid the pain and cost of hauling your own junk is to call in a professional and expert junk hauling firm like Junk King.
And what we can remove for you may be far more than you think. Take a look at this infographic for a better idea of what we can do for you when it comes to junk removal:
Calculating the "Real" Cost of Hauling Junk
Everybody's time is valuable. And if you are in business, it is quite true that “time is money.” Let's say you're paying someone $15 and hour then your actual cost is closer to $18 an hour for a full-time employee.
When you pay this person to clean up your junk, put it all in a truck, and haul it to a landfill to dump it, then come back and possibly clean out the truck, this can take a great deal of time. In fact, depending the amount of junk, it could take over half the day.
This means that the five-hour clean up job not only cost you almost $100 in labor costs, plus fuel and dumping fees. However, you also have to add in the costs of those five hours in lost productivity.
Altogether, your "quick" junk hauling task ends up costing you almost $250!
Granted, this is a fictional scenario and, if you do all the work yourself, you don't have to count the labor costs. Except that your own time has value and the time you spend being a junk hauler is time you didn't spend doing what you do best - your real job.
