Tricks to quickly sale your HOME…

North Americans spend $1.2 billion every year on items they don’t need, while 1 in every 11 Canadian households rents storage units for their overflowing number of belongings.

But now that you are ready to sell your home, all your junk stands in the way of a quick sale. When a buyer visit a home, he think in his head “‘If this is the way they live cluttered in this junk, how have they taken care of the home over time? Have they replaced the air filters and have they done proper maintenance and repairs? They doubt the overall quality or condition of the home.

A living space cleared of stuff is how realtors can find a family for your home. Listings a clean and ordered house is easier to take pictures. Pare down before your listing photo shoot—buyers will make their first judgments online by what they see. Also most home buyer look for a clean front and backyard.

The internet has fundamentally changed the way to sell homes. Now, online home search is universal across the globe and 89% of millennials use the web in their home hunt.

The internet is the most important resource. That’s where people are getting their first look at your home. They mainly go by pictures. If they see a home that is not staged, meaning that it’s filled with junk here and there the buyer will reject your home and move on to the next. That means a cluttered mess could not only turn off buyers who come through the home but hinder your or your realtors ability to book showings in the first place. The house needs top notch before the photographer comes over to capture your home or online shoppers will simply say “Next!” to your web listing photos.

When it comes to clearing out your home, the sooner you can start, the better. You need to hire a reliable and honest junk removal company. JunkGods has helped 100’s of clients over the year to make their home a fast sale. You can book a no obligation free estimate through www.junkgods.ca

I’ll sell my stuff….

Selling stuff sounds great in theory to make a buck (or several hundred). What could be better? But the reality it takes energy and effort, whether you’re visiting an online marketplace or hosting a garage sale.

According to Organizing experts, people often expect that selling their stuff is going to result in a hefty financial gain. Chances are, it’s not. People think they can easily sell their use stuff. It takes a lot of work to put items on eBay or Kijiji or Marketplace and to manage those listings. And expect no shows.

Realtors don’t have time to wait after you to sell your stuff online before sending a photographer to take pictures. If you want to sell – get rid of the junk. That’s the bottom line.

Donating your stuff….

Let’s call the local Goodwill or nonprofit-owned second-hand shop. NOT… They no longer pick-up anything at people’s houses. Give them a call and you’ll see.

Dumping your stuff at the curbside…

It is now illegal to put trash at the curb if it is not in garbage containers. You can be fined up to $500 by your city or municipality. And the worst part, you have yo pick it up or else they will fine you another $500 – 24 hours later.

Who needs a Bin – Anymore!

Got some house renovations to be done and chances are you’re going to be left with excess materials and debris such as drywall, flooring, old appliances, bath tubs etc… Chances are You’ll most likely pickup the phone and call to rent a bin.

Hang up that phone and read this before you do so…

When you’re planning to renovate, you must keep in mind two important things: How much stuff you think you’ll have left over and how you’re going to get rid off it. There’s a couple of ways you can get rid of that junk.

Call a friend with a truck
Renovating the bathroom? Got an old shower stall or bath tub, sink, tiles, cement and other loads of stuff. Calling a friend with a truck sounds like a good solution for this type of load. Doing a dump run with all those items won’t cost too much or will it! First you’ve got to haul all that junk outside the house and throw it in your friends truck. But wait, you’ll get the truck dirty and also you most likely will not enough room in the truck. On second thought – forget the truck.

Rent a truck or trailer
Renting an attachable trailer or a truck might be a goos alternative to cleanup. Installing new floors, getting rid of old furniture, sofas and sectionals may require that increased space and your friends half-tonne pickup most definitely will not do the trick. Taking this route will cost you a disposal fee at the transfer station/landfill, renting the truck (can’t forget certain dollar amount per kilometer, gas as well) as your time and effort and renting the trailer . Keep in mind who will be doing the heavy and repetitive lifting – you. Keep in mind that you need to leave the truck or trailer clean, if not, they’ll charge you a cleaning fee. All of this might cost you over $600. Let’s forget that idea.

Rent a bin
Renting a bin can be more costly than you think. First of all, you do all the hauling and secondly it usually takes a couple of days before they drop it off. Also, depending where you live, a bin might not be an oprion. Besides the bin rental fee – you’ll have to pay an add-on fee for tonnage. All in all this way might set you back over $500.

Hire a junk removal company
Hiring a junk removal company can make your life significantly easier. This is by the far easiest method of junk removal for homeowners and commercial properties. A company like JunkGods will do all the heavy lifting, completely removing the possibility of injuring yourself and/or others. The cost of our service is much cheaper than those other above solutions, especially when you factor in your time and costs at the landfill. On top of that – we recycle and donate.

The choice is obvious – Don’t wait, give us a call today!

Why Recycling is a Life Saver

Nowadays, we live in a world where natural resources is essential for us humans but we’re faced with a dramatic overflowing of landfills and plastic being dumped in our oceans.

Though recycling may have become a way of life – so people may wonder why exactly do we recycle? Why is recycling good for the environment? What are the benefits of recycling? Who does it benefit? What am I getting in return when I recycle? A cleaner Mother Earth. The benefits of recycle are greater than you can imagine. Recycling as much as you can is what is a recommendation these days. Recycling can have a positive effect on people, animals, land, natural resources and your health. Yes, your health.

Recycling isn’t just good for the environment – it has become, if we can say critical. Every year on April 22, the world celebrates Earth Day. This day is dedicated to raise awareness of environmental issues. Though, we only celebrate Earth Day once a year, we should strive to recycle all year round. Hiring a junk removal company helps in the process of recycling. Take JunkGods, they recycle up to 84% of all the junk the haul away from homes and businesses.

Recycling is by far the most effective way in protecting our planet. We can recycle in many ways as you already know when you put that bin at the curbside.

Recycling preserves valuable natural resources for the good and longevity of the planet. It also ensures we can continue to live the way we are accustomed to. The more we recycle, the less we need to disrupt and damage our wildlife.

When it comes to recycling metal, call upon the specialists. They will haul all that metals away knowing the best way to recycle them. Let’s take the example of aluminium which is considered a metal. Making products from recycled materials requires less energy than creating them from raw materials. The difference is immense, for example producing new aluminium from recycled cans and foil uses 95% less energy than starting from scratch.
Recycling also creates new companies and a wealth of new jobs in the recycling industry itself and in manufacturing. Some stores such as thrift stores contain entire lines of merchandise made from recycled goods, showcasing the benefits of recycling at a more local and international level.

It’s simple – doing good makes you feel good. Saving the planet makes happy people. Recycle as much as you can at home or at the workplace. Encourage everyone to recycle.

Tearing down a wall is a bigger deal than you thought? As you all know excitement is a wonderful emotion but what if that emotion turns into horror soon after you give that sledgehammer its first swing! Fresh DIY design projects can be fun but not its not everyones cup of tea. And, contrary to what may seem obvious to some people, a hammer is not a tool fit for a king or queen.

Don’t Tear Down a Load-bearing Wall

3 Easy Ways to Clean Up your Home Quickly

The biggest time waster, people make when cleaning and decluttering their home is concentrating room by room. Some people get caught focusing too much on one particular area, spending a day in one room instead of a couple of hours for the whole house.

Step 1: Hire Professionals

Hire a junk removal company to unclutter your home of junk. A junk removal company like Junk Gods will get your items out of the house in way less time in return not injuring yourself in the process.

Step 2: Dust Your House

Dust each and every room and all handrails, as well as picture frames and everything else in between. Remember to look up top. Some people forget to dust on top of furniture, and that’s where all the dust collects.

Step 3: Vacuum and Clean the Floors

First vacuum all the floors throughout the house and wipe them down using hot water and vinegar. Remember to move all items to clean thoroughly.

But you might be asking, how do you do that and keep yourself and everyone else in your family safe.

Here are the procedures that Junk Gods Junk Removal has adopted since the COVID-19 pandemic to keep their employees and customers safe at all times.

  • Wear brand new masks and disinfect our gloves for every customer we service.
  • We offer a No Contact Junk Removal where all payment transactions are done over the phone or at a safe physical distance.
  • To further minimize contact, if you prefer, you can move your junk outside prior to our arrival, which in this case is called a curbside pick-up and receive a 5% discount.
  • If your junk is inside, we must be able to always maintain a 2-meter distance.
  • After work has been completed, payment can be processed without any contact by calling our main office.

When it comes to donation bin, they no longer take items for the time being. Charities are not picking up donations from those bins. Junk Gods has a partnership with local charities, so set aside your items and they will pick them up at your convenience.
