Donation Pickup Services Charlotte and Surrounding
Junk Doctors does their best to ensure that your items receive a chance at a second life. As our team loads the truck they are sorting items that should be donated, recycled, or disposed of. Any items that are donated will be taken back to our sorting warehouse and then delivered to a local charity. We tend to work with these charities because they are locally based. Our reasoning is that there are less expenses up top so a higher percentage of the revenue your items bring in goes to charitable causes compared to some of the larger charities.
Some items that we commonly donate are:
- Christmas and other holiday decorations
Items that are normally not accepted at charities
- Mattresses/Box Springs
- Exercise Equipment
- CRT Televisions and computer monitors
Sorting through donate-able and recyclable items is one of the things that separates a full service junk cleanout company from a dumpster rental company. With a dumpster rental company the items that go into the dumpster go straight to the landfill. For that reason there are many items that you are unable to put into a dumpster. You are not able to put electronics, pallets, tires, appliances, computer monitors, or televisions in a dumpster. Often times you are not allowed to put in yard waste without paying an additional fee. However a Charlotte Junk Removal company can sort through those items and recycle them. That allows us to accept the items that a dumpster rental company will turn away.
Charities are becoming more selective as to what they take out of necessity. Furniture has to be in almost like new condition with minimal wear and tear. Clothing should be stain and tear free. Basically if it is going to be donated it needs to be because it is still nice but you just no longer need it or want it.
To prepare your items for donation we do ask that you do a few things. Obviously our guys are able to look at large pieces of furniture and know if it is in good enough condition to be donated. Those pieces they will load as needed and then take them to a donation center. However if you have smaller items such as clothing, toys, holiday decorations, dishes, etc. we do ask that you prepare these items for us. What we mean by that is have them boxed or bagged together and labeled with a Sharpie marker “for donation”. Please separate any clothing from other donateables.
We will mail you a tax receipt for any items that are donated. Do keep in mind that it may be a few weeks before you receive your receipt. Your items could be taken to our warehouse and sorted where it could be up to a week before they are taken to a donation center or picked up by a charity. Then allow us up to a week or so to mail off the receipt. Please make sure that if you are moving you provide us with your mailing address.
Locally Owned and Operated
Junk Doctors has been incorporated since January of 2012. We are the experienced locally owned option for junk removal in the Charlotte, NC and surrounding areas. Since that time we have made it a dedication to provide a team that is knowledgeable, personable, respectful, clean cut, honest, hard working, and of course… strong. We are also locally owned. All but one of our competitors are franchises. Each of those companies sends between 12%-15% of your money out of the area to their corporate offices in the form of a franchise fee. That means that your money is leaving North Carolina and going to either Canada, California, or Florida. Should you choose to go with Junk Doctors all the money will stay inside the local economy.
Commercial and Office Junk Removal
Junk Doctors core business comes from residential clients. However we do offer office or commercial junk removal in Charlotte, Concord, Kannapolis, Mathews, Monroe NC, and surrounding areas. Offices tend to have lots of electronics and heavy furniture or equipment that need to be removed. Junk Doctors has equipped our truck teams with the necessary straps, dollies, equipment, and knowledge to do the job correctly. We also work fast and respect the fact that work is often going on while junk removal is taking place. For the client that is unable to have work going on during regular business hours we do offer off hour service for no additional charge.
Hot Tub Removal
Junk Doctors has removed lots of hot tubs in Charlotte area and surrounding areas including Gastonia, Hickory, Kannapolis, Concord, Fort Mill and others. We only charge our normal rate dependent on how much space the hot tub would take up in our truck. This will generally run anywhere from around 5/8ths of a load for a 6×6 or smaller hot tub to closer to a Full load for a 8×8 or larger hot tub. Pricing can vary a bit due to how your hot tub is set up.
Junk Doctors uses a special saw to cut your hot tub into sections. This allows two guys to safely remove your hot tub from anywhere within your property. Often times deck rails are built up around a hot tub. Since we cut the hot tub into sections we do not have to disassemble any part of your deck. It also does not matter if the hot tub is located on top of your deck or is recessed down in it. We can do it both ways.
What do you need to do before we arrive? There are a few things. We are not electricians so we do ask that you have the hot tub disconnected from electrical power. The last thing is to please drain the water from the hot tub. Once those two things are done give us a call so we can get your hot tub removed.
Rental Home or Apartment Cleanout
One group of people that Junk Doctors are always providing junk hauling services to are landlords and apartment complexes. Unfortunately it is not so uncommon for a tenant to leave all of their stuff with you when they leave. Chances are that none of it is valuable because if it was they would have taken it themselves. Every minute a rental property sits vacant is missed income. Junk Doctors can almost always offer same day service in order to get your job completed and get your unit back on the market.
Storage Unit Clean-Out around Charlotte NC
The Background on Self Storage
The Self Storage industry started in 1958 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. It began to grow at a steady rate through the 60, 70s, and 80s. Growth picked up in the 90’s and absolutely exploded in the early 2000s. Now that the economy has begun a recovery you are seeing construction begin once again on the self storage industry. Americans love their stuff and often times have more stuff than they have space. For that reason they turn to storage units to store their stuff. Depending on the size and location of their unit most people in the Charlotte area, and surrounding areas pay a rate of somewhere around $60 to $150 a month. Often times storing the stuff really isn’t your best option, especially if it is going to be long term storage, like a year or more. Often times the amount you pay in storage over a long period of time exceeds the value of the items within the unit. That’s when it makes sense to have a full service junk hauling company come in.
When Junk Doctors arrives on site we will take a look at everything that you have and let you know a firm price to remove the items. Once you give us the go ahead we will proceed to load everything up for you. Theoretically most of the stuff in your unit does have some value, otherwise you likely would not have stored it right? Rest assured that Junk Doctors will sort through the majority of your items in order to donate and recycle as much as possible.
Self Storage Unit Clean-outs
One of the nice things about storage unit junk removal in Charlotte, NC and surrounding areas is the fact that you don’t even have to be there. If everything in the unit is going or if it clear as to what goes and what stays then you don’t have to be there. All you would need to do is give your storage unit manager a call and let them know that Junk Doctors is clearing out your unit. We have done jobs at the majority of storage units in the Charlotte/Queen City areas so managers are familiar with us. Let us know the unit number and the combination of the lock and your unit will be emptied without you even having to be there. We are able to take payment via credit card over the phone.
Storage Shed Removal and Teardown
Do you have an old storage shed that has outlived its usefulness? Has that shed simply become an eyesore rather than a valuable structure? If so then it might be time to give Junk Doctors a call to have them come tear down and remove your shed. It does not matter if your storage building is wood or metal. We can demolish the shed anywhere in Charlotte or the surrounding areas.
Our team of two will come and quote you an all inclusive price. You are simply charged our normal volume based rate dependent on the amount of space the shed takes up in our truck. There is an extra nominal demolition fee. If your shed is 8×8 or under the charge is $50. If the shed is larger than 8×8 the charge is $100 plus volume rate. We can also remove any items that are inside the unit if you would like.
We do equip our team with the proper saws, demo bars, and other tools to do the job correctly. Our company is fully insured as well so you do not need to worry about liability should our guys injure themselves.
Hoarders will collect what most people would consider trash. Many of the hoarding jobs we have done have newspapers dated years back, junk mail, torn clothing, fast food cups, magazines, etc. Generally the hoarders have created paths to walk. Often times the door of the house barely open because of the junk wedged in behind them. Hoarding is a health hazard from the increased likelihood of falling and from the sanitation issues caused by having so much trash. Often times these homes are infested with mice, roaches, and spiders.
Hoarding symptoms can show up early in life however they tend to worsen as an individual grows older. Traumatic events can really kick in the hoarding tendencies as the individual tries to gain satisfaction from the items they hoard. A death of a close friend or relative is a common cause for hoarding tendencies to worsen. Most of the time loved ones who attempt to help the hoarder clean up will be met with animosity. It truly puts a strain on relationships.
Junk Doctors does about seven to eight hoarding junk removal jobs each year. Almost all of the time it is done by friends and relatives of the hoarder without the hoarder being present. Our team can enter the house and remove all of the trash. We will do a sweep of the entire house to complete the job. Professional cleaners can then come in after and often times with minimal repair work get the house back to like new condition. The hoarder needs to receive psychiatric help or unfortunately they will go back to their tendencies once they get back to the house.
Our Hoarder Clean Up service area includes most of the NC area from our Charlotte area services all the way back to Raleigh and beyond. We also services the Greensboro market and will go into other areas due to the sheer size of these jobs.
Bed Bug Item Removal
Bed bugs had become all but extinct many years back because of the wide spread use of the insecticide DDT. DDT has been banned from being used for decades now and the bed bug has finally made a comeback. We are doing several junk removal jobs every month remove furniture that has been infested by bed bugs. Often times the only good way to get rid of a bed bug infestation is to get rid of all the furniture that has been infested. Then hiring a good, reputable exterminating company that is used to treating bed bugs to come into your home. The most common and effective way to get rid of bed bugs is by heating your home up to approximately 140 degrees for several hours.
Junk Doctors has the HAZMAT suites to prevent the spread of bed bugs. We also wrap large furniture in order to keep from spreading the bugs to your neighbors as we are moving the items. We will take all bed bug infested furniture and other items straight to the landfill. Please note there is a $75 surcharge for all bed bug junk removal in Charlotte and surrounding areas.
Death is an unfortunate reality that all of us will face at certain times throughout our life. When a loved one passes it is obviously a very difficult time emotionally. However it is also difficult because of everything that has to get done. If your loved one had assets that you have been left responsible to take care of Junk Doctors can be of service. We have worked along side estate auction companies and those left in charge of the estate in order to efficiently and effectively get rid of a loved ones assets to get the property ready to sell.
