Donation Pickup Services Raleigh and Surrounding
Junk Doctors does their best to ensure that your items receive a chance at a second life. Because of this, as our team loads the truck, they are sorting items that should be donated, recycled, or disposed of. In addition, any items that are donated will be taken back to our sorting warehouse and then delivered to a local charity. Some of the charities we like to work with are Habitat for Humanity Raleigh, Cary, and Apex, Durham Rescue Mission, Dorcas Ministries, The Green Chair Project, among others. We tend to work with these charities because with the exception of Habitat they are locally based. Because of this, we reason 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.
Commonly Donated Items
- Christmas and other holiday decorations
Items Commonly Turned Away from Donation Centers
- 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 clean-out company from a dumpster rental company. For example, with a dumpster rental company the items that go into the dumpster will go straight to the landfill. For that reason, there are many items that you are unable to put into a dumpster. For example, you cannot put electronics, pallets, tires, appliances, computer monitors, or televisions in a dumpster. Also, you are not allowed to put in yard waste without paying an additional fee. However, a Raleigh, NC 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. For example, the couch that your dogs have laid on is still in one piece. However, it has stains, lumps, and is covered in dog hair. That is an item a charity will not take. Furthermore, 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 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 ask that you prepare these items for us. For example, please have your clothing and toys placed in bags in a pile. And please have your fragile dishes placed in boxes beside the bags. Then place sticky notes on the boxes that say “for donation”. Please separate any clothing from other donateables.
We will mail you a tax receipt for any items that are donated. However, 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. Lastly, allow us up to a week or so to mail off the receipt. Furthermore, please make sure that if you are moving you provide us with your new mailing address.
The map below shows our service area for both of our locations, Raleigh Junk Doctors and Greensboro Junk Doctors. We also service the Southern Pines and Pinehurst area. We service areas outside of our normal service area on a routine basis. If you have a larger junk removal job outside of our normal service area then give us a call to see if we can service you.
Junk Removal Raleigh is Locally Owned and Operated
Junk Doctors has been incorporated since January of 2012. 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. Furthermore, we are also locally owned. For example, all but one or two of our competitors are a franchise. Each of those franchises sends between 12%-15% of your money out of the area to their corporate offices in the form of a franchise fee. What that means is that your money is leaving North Carolina and going to either Canada, California, or Florida. However, should you choose to go with Junk Doctors all the money will stay inside the local economy. Feel free to read more About Us.
Junk Removal Raleigh Commercial and Office Junk Removal
Our core business comes from residential clients. However, we do offer office or commercial junk removal in the Raleigh, Cary, Chapel Hill, Durham, Apex, Clayton, and surrounding areas. Offices tend to have lots of electronics and heavy furniture or equipment that need to be removed. We remove lots of cubicles as well. We equip our truck teams with the necessary straps, dollies, equipment, and knowledge to do the job correctly. Furthermore, we 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.
Junk Removal Raleigh Hot Tub Removal
Junk Doctors has removed lots of hot tubs in Raleigh, Cary, Apex, Chapel Hill, Durham, and surrounding areas. We charge based on the space the hot tub will take up in our truck. In addition, pricing will be determined by the level of difficulty of the move. For example, a hot tub that is set down in a deck will cost more than one that is sitting on a patio. There is simply more risk and work involved.
The Hot Tub Removal Process
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.
What do you need to do before we arrive? There are a few things. Firstly, we are not electricians so we do ask that you have the hot tub disconnected from electrical power. Lastly, 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.
Junk Removal Raleigh Rental Home or Apartment Clean out
One group of people that we always provide junk hauling services to are landlords and apartment complexes. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for a tenant to leave all of their stuff at your property upon leaving. 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.
Landlords and Apartment complexes are eligible for special VIP pricing. If you manage over five units then let us know and we will work up a discounted price sheet tailor fit for your business.
Junk Removal Raleigh Storage Unit Clean-Out
Do you have a storage unit full of items that you need to get rid of in the Raleigh/Triangle Area?
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’s, 70’s, and 80’s. Growth picked up in the 90’s and absolutely exploded in the early 2000’s. Now that the economy has begun a recovery you are seeing construction begin once again on the self storage industry. The reason for this, is 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.
Why Self Storage Doesn’t Really Make Sense
Pricing is dependent on the size and location of their unit. Most people in the Raleigh, Cary, Durham, Chapel Hill, Apex, Clayton, 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. This is especially true if it is going to be long term storage, such as 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. Because of this, clearing out your unit with Junk Doctors just makes good sense.
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. Then, 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.
Storage Unit Clean Out
One of the nice things about storage unit clean out in Raleigh, NC and surrounding areas is the fact that you don’t even have to be there. This is true if everything in the unit is going, or if it clear as to what goes and what stays. 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 Raleigh, Cary, Chapel Hill, Durham, Apex, and surrounding areas so managers are fairly 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. Lastly, we are able to take payment via credit card over the phone.
Junk Removal Raleigh Storage Shed Removal and Teardown
Do you have an old storage shed that has become an eyesore? We will tear it down and haul it away.
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. Furthermore, it does not matter if your storage building is wood or metal. We can remove the shed in Raleigh, Cary, Chapel Hill, Durham, Apex, and surrounding areas.
Shed Removal Process
Our team of two will come and quote you an all inclusive price. You are simply charged for the rate the shed takes up in our truck plus a nominal fee for deconstruction. For example, if your shed is 8×8 or under the charge is $50. However, if the shed is larger than 8×8 the charge would be around $100 plus the volume rate. Lastly, we can also remove any items that are inside the unit if you would like.
We do equip our team with the proper saws, pry bars, and other tools to do the job correctly. Furthermore, our company is fully insured as well so you do not need to worry about liability should our guys injure themselves.
Junk Removal Raleigh Hoarder Clean-Up
Do you know of someone struggling with compulsive hoarding? Junk Doctors can help get them cleaned up.
Hoarding is a Mental Disorder
Compulsive Hoarding is now defined as a mental disorder that affects many people throughout the country. Hoarders will collect what most people would consider trash. For example, many of the hoarding jobs we have done have old newspapers, 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. Because of this, hoarding is a health hazard from the increased likelihood of falling and from sanitation issues. 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.
Hoarding Removal Experts
Junk Doctors does about ten to twelve 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 Raleigh, Cary, Durham, Chapel Hill, Apex, Morrisville, Clayton, and the greater Research Triangle Park area. We also services the Greensboro market and will go into other areas due to the sheer size of these jobs. Give us a call at 919-466-9322 with any questions.
