USING BLACK FRIDAY AND JUNK KING TO REDUCE CLUTTER

Posted by frankc on Nov 25, 2013 11:35:34 PM

Let's face it, electronic products become out-dated faster than Miley Cyrus does something outrageous, and with Black Friday right around the corner this could be the best time for an upgrade. Get rid of those old, tired, outmoded goods while replacing them with state of the art electronics on sale. Look, desktop computers now come without towers; laptops and desktops feature touchscreens; televisions offer better pictures, are more energy-efficient, and cheaper than ever; and printers are wireless.

Where does Junk King come into the equation? We can come collect the old stuff, while you wait in line for the new stuff. Thats right, electronics are considered E-waste and can't be thrown into the trash. What is E-waste? According to the State of California, “E-waste is a popular, informal name for electronic products nearing the end of their 'useful life.' Computers, televisions, VCRs, stereos, copiers, and fax machines are common electronic products..." are all considered E-Waste. These items contain hazardous materials like lead, barium and other heavy metals, toxic phosphor, glass dust, tin, lead, brominated dioxin, beryllium cadmium, and mercury, hydrocarbons, heavy metals, brominated substances that need to be disposed of properly.

Who wants to deal with getting rid of the old TV when they're busy setting up the new one? Give Junk King a call and we'll make disposing of the old items safe and easy. Sure you know all this, but why not pick up that old stupid-phone of yours, and give Junk King a call; or book online (do you have online on that old computer of yours?) Imagine using your closet for clothes, or your garage for cars, instead of junk.

At Junk King, we're cost competitive, we pride ourselves on being fast, the greenest, and we do all the work. See you on Black Friday, and remember—that one is mine!

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.
