There are few things in life as exciting or as stressful as relocating. And having to deal with the inevitable bulk trash removal doesn't help matters.
It's funny, but most of us have no idea how much "stuff" is in our homes until we have to pack it all. In fact, most of us don't even know how much of our belongings are really just junk that we haven't gotten rid of.
A Hot Housing Market Means Many Moves and Bulk Trash Removal
With the state of the housing market in most every region of the country, home sales are at close to record highs and many people are relocating. For some, the need to relocate is often job-related. But, for many, the opportunity to sell their home for an amount that they never imagined they could get is an opportunity they might not see again.
Whatever the reason, when a home goes on the market - and usually long before - there is a flurry of activity as the owners begin to pack, and clean, and get rid of all the things they either no longer want or no longer need.
It's this last part that often results in boxes, bags, and piles of household belongings such as books, magazines, pots and pans, old furniture, some appliances, and a wide - and sometimes odd - collection of junk.
And it all has to be disposed of.
This purging and cleaning aspect of the home sale and relocation can be overwhelming. With that in mind, we put together this graphic checklist to help guide through a more structured approach to getting rid of your junk.
It's one thing to get rid of all the small stuff. Most of it will, hopefully, fit into your weekly trash bins or recycling container. And, if not, you can count on Junk King to be your reliable partner for getting rid of all that junk, as well.
But it's the large trash items - the bulk junk pieces - like old, broken furniture, unwanted old, appliances, and large boxes or containers of "stuff" you no longer want or need, that can't just go out to the curb.
Fortunately, at Junk King we specialize in bulk trash removal and - what really sets us apart - is that we are a genuinely green disposal service. That simply means we make recycling a priority and we recycle as much of everything we can. Even bulk trash items.
Did We Mention That We Are a Green Bulk Trash Removal Service?
It's a sobering fact that we are gradually running out of landfill space in the United States. Another sobering fact is that most junk removal services dump all their junk in landfills. Unfortunately, many of those landfills are the source of avoidable groundwater pollution and contamination.
In addition, even without the environmental threats, landfills are a rapidly diminishing option for disposal.
But a truly eco-conscious bulk trash removal company will be one that runs an environmentally friendly and green operation that treats landfills as a last resort.
Which is exactly what we do at Junk King. In fact, it’s been our corporate mission since our founding in 2005 to reuse, recycle, and donate as many items as possible of everything we pick up. That’s because we understand that the more waste that gets recycled, the better it is for the environment, and the better it is for our neighborhoods.
The Easy Way to Bulk Trash Removal From Your House Move
When clearing out your house when moving out, you likely know that getting rid of all the large junk items can be a, well, large task.
And because someone else will be moving in later - probably the new homeowners - It's important to be sure that when those large, heavy items are hauled out of the house that the home isn’t damaged in the process.
Often when the house is going to be sold one critical task before selling the home is making sure that it's clean and repaired before being shown to prospective buyers. And, when it comes to showing the house once it's on the market, another critical task is making sure that all of your own belongings have been removed.
Moving cleanouts can be both physically and emotionally overwhelming, especially for family members. And if you happen to be a real estate professional that has offered to help with the cleanout, that stress can be minimized substantially by hiring outside help.
And a professional bulk trash removal service such as Junk King is a great choice, especially for removing old, unwanted furniture and other large items. in addition, Junk King will ensure that the property is left safe and clean, which is especially important when the property has already been vacated by the sellers and left large amounts of junk behind.
Our professional and insured junk disposal team will show up at the home and we call 15 to 30 minutes before we arrive on site.
