Moving Stress Got You Down?

There are few things more stressful than moving. Packing all those boxes. Deciding what you have to move versus what you need to trash. My wife Jessica and I sold our last house in 2017. And it was the first time we chose to call a junk removal service.

We found out that we only had 30 days to get all our stuff packed and moved to our new home.  And, we both worked full time jobs, had two small kids, and had offices in the house with a couple of very heavy desks.  We just did not have time to get rid of unwanted items by ourselves. So we called a junk hauling company to help us.

Then, when we moved into our new house, we discovered some of our furniture wouldn’t fit. So, again we ended up using a hauling service.  After using a junk removal company several times, we realized what an important services they provide. We saw what they did right, but as customers, we also saw what they could have done better.

That’s when we decided to start 1-888-PIK-IT-UP.  We can remove your unwanted junk, old furniture, mattresses, and electronics.  Except for a couple of items like oil and used paint, we can take pretty much everything.

If you’re like me, when you’re moving there are still things you don’t want to haul to the new house.  You may want to consider giving us a call at 1-888-PIK-IT-UP.  We have a polite, professional crew that will get the job done quickly.  We know your time is valuable. When moving, you don’t want the extra stress of trying to figure out how to get rid of  your unwanted junk.

We’ve sold three houses in the past few years. I always want to make sure that we aren’t bringing anything we don’t need with us.  Are you holding onto items in the garage or storage that you haven’t used in months or even years?  If you’re like me you have accumulated extra stuff over time. They are just taking up space in the garage, attic, or shed.  We can remove those out of date mattresses, outgrown bikes and anything else that’s just taking up too much space.

Maybe you’re moving to a smaller house or downsizing and have items that just won’t fit in the new house. Even with a bigger house sometimes your current furniture doesn’t fit the new rooms.  For example, when we moved from Greensboro to Wilmington, North Carolina our kids got a similar sized playroom. But the couch from the Greensboro house wouldn’t fit through the door of the new one. There was nowhere else in the house to put it. So we had to get a junk removal company to haul it away.   Before moving, take a look at your new home size and try some interior design planning with your current furniture to make sure everything is going to fit and makes sense in those spaces.

Now that we’re moving once again to Raleigh, we’re looking at our new space and deciding whether or not to bring all of our current stuff with us or go ahead and get rid of it so we don’t have to pay to move them, just to realize later that we don’t need them.

Here’s another one, we had a house with a large yard, then we moved to a house with a much smaller one.  For the last three years we’ve been holding onto a large lawn tractor that’s just taking  up space in our garage. We really don’t need it and we probably should’ve sold it three years ago. If you find yourself with tools and items that you don’t use any more, you might want to consider giving us a call.  We can remove those tools, lawn equipment, and anything that you just don’t use or need anymore.

If you’re in the Raleigh, Cary, or the Durham area give us a call to remove any unwanted items. We also take exercise equipment, bikes, and even hot tubs.  Give us a call at 888-PIK-ITUP or make an appointment online today and we’ll help you get your garage, attic and storage spaces decluttered.

 

Thank you,
