Practical Steps for Finding The Best Junk Removal Company
Junk, Webster’s dictionary defines it as, secondhand, worn or discarded articles, or something of little meaning, worth, or significance. There are documentaries and old sitcoms where junk is the center of focus, where everyday people have a hard time getting rid of useless stuff. With popular shows like Hoarders, and Buried Alive, we can see how bad the accumulation of junk and debris can get. In some instances, it can get so severe as to become a health hazard and an eyesore. When neighbors start to complain about junk filled yards or your garages are filled to capacity with items that no longer have any use or purpose, then the time to consider hiring a junk removal company is at hand.
When to use a Junk Removal Service
You could wait until a producer from a cable television network approaches you and offers to do a show on your trash filled yard or home, in return for a free cleanup, but you might find yourself waiting a long time. Using a junk removal service is a much wiser course of action. Junk removal companies can perform the work of clearing and removing junk from your home or yard economically and efficiently. Below are a few other reasons to use a junk removal company instead of trying to do the work yourself.
At first glance, it may appear cheaper to load and haul away all of your junk yourself but oftentimes this is not the case. With the cost of truck rental, if you don’t already have one, the cost of fuel, and trips to the landfill, cost can rise quickly. When you include time off work to complete the job, the amount of money saved becomes inconsequential.
Time is money, why spend hours or days clearing, loading and hauling away loads of trash and junk, when a professional junk removal company can do the job in half the time while you get to work or just sit back and relax.
Saves back-breaking labor
Let’s face it, removing a bunch of junk is hard physical labor. doing it yourself could possibly save you a few dollars, but in the long run, it’s not worth all of the heavy lifting and loading that could possibly end in injury and most likely will end with a stiff and sore back.
Makes you feel better
Removing a bunch of clutter and junk will help reduce stress. That’s right, according to Physcologytoday.com, clutter and mess produces stress by making it difficult to relax, creates feeling of guilt, especially if neighbors are hounding you about your cluttered yard, and distracts you by drawing your attention away from things you should be focused on. These are just a few of the benefits of using junk removal companies. When selecting a junk or trash removal company,consider some of the following:
- Price – A good junk removal service will offer a free estimate before any work is started. Get several estimates before you decide on which company to hire, and take into consideration the amount of work involved if you had to do the work yourself. Keep in mind, the lowest price does not always equal the best service.
- Location – If you live way out in the country in Western North Carolina, or in the heart of the big city, factor in travel time and fuel cost to and from your city’s landfill or dump if you were to do the job yourself.
- Protection – Not talking about protection from being crushed by a mountain of old dog food cans you’ve been saving for a spaceship you’ve been planning to build, but about
being licensed and insured. The company you hire needs to be licensed for demolition, clean-up and junk removal in the Western North Carolina area. By Being licensed or certified to perform these services, you will be protected should any legal issues arise with the company after removing junk from your property. Insurance is equally important to cover medical cost of any accidents that might occur and cause injury or pay for property that is accidentally damaged.
A good junk removal service should provide fast, professional service and have a courteous and friendly staff. You should be provided with a free estimate of all services and given an estimated time of completion. Junk removal companies provide a time saving, cost-effective way to remove unwanted clutter and junk from your home or yard,
