123JUNK Value Proposition

123JUNK Opens Maryland Office

January 2017 kicked off right with the opening of a new office in Maryland for 123JUNK to serve our growing number of customers in the Maryland/DC region. The new office is located at:

15912 Shady Grove Road, Gaithersburg, Maryland 20877

Because we’ve been working with so many clients in Maryland, we thought the timing was perfect to open an office that could service our clients from their own neighborhoods.

Here are just some of the benefits local 123JUNK clients will enjoy:

  • More accessibility. We are now your local junk-hauling option.
  • Longer service hours. We no longer have to factor in travel time from Virginia so we can schedule local service from the time we open to the time we close.
  • Fewer delays. We’re not at the mercy of the notoriously-bad Beltway traffic so we can better control our travel time.
  • Dedicated Maryland-based trucks
  • Local crews
  • More junk-hauling appointments per day due to our local availability
  • Connections with local Maryland businesses
  • Partnerships with local charitable organizations

  • Junk hauling
  • Furniture and appliance removal
  • Debris and yard waste removal
  • Cleanout services

Does 123JUNK Take Christmas Trees?

This time of year, 123JUNK gets a lot of calls with people asking, “Do you take Christmas trees?” The simple answer is: YES!

We also take:

  • Piles of wrapping paper, discarded boxes and packaging wrappings from gifts
  • Party bags
  • Holiday cards
  • Food wrappings, paper plates and cups from holiday open houses
  • Empty bottles and corks
  • Paper hats, horns and streamers from your New Year’s party
  • Christmas trees and wreathes
  • Old electronics and toys—now that you’ve received the latest and greatest

123JUNK also helps clean up these messes:

  • Perhaps you received an item for the holidays that is an upgrade of one you already have. Donate the old one!
  • By accident, you broke a chair or lamp in the holiday festivities. Put it in the pile for 123JUNK to haul away.
  • Maybe a relative came to visit and won’t leave. Well, we can’t help with that one. But we can haul off extra furniture and household items to donate to area charities. That will make more room for them in their “new” home.

Many people take bag after bag to the curb to await the weekly trash truck. Others watch as their once-adorned tree slowly disintegrates at the end of the driveway. These piles of debris aren’t very appealing, and don’t do a lot for your neighborhood aesthetics. Plus, they can add additional stress during a time that’s supposed to be relaxing and fun.

There’s no need to worry about your holiday debris when with one call to 123JUNK, your junk can be gone. We can quickly and easily help you clean up after the holidays, leaving you more quality time to spend with the family and ready for the New Year. To make things even easier, you don’t even have to sort your items. We’ll do that for you, donating reusable items to our charitable partners, recycling, and hauling the rest to the landfill.

Let 123JUNK make your New Year sparkle. Call us to reserve your pickup today!

Woman Relaxing

Clear the Path to a Fresh New Year

The New Year offers an opportunity to make a fresh start. Gone are the challenges of the year past, and ahead lie the shiny new possibilities.

To clear the path, sometimes we have to clear our environment. Creative and confident people need space in order to function well, and an overstuffed house or an overscheduled schedule leaves little room to breathe. In order to feel calm, it is essential to have clear spaces, and that can mean getting rid of the clutter that is standing in your way.

Some people might call this minimalism, others may call it a zen-like style of living. Either way, you can exponentially improve your lifestyle by clearing out clutter.

Here are just some of the benefits of having less stuff:

  • Reduced distractions:
    Having fewer items to look at or take care of lessens the everyday stress levels and allows you to feel a sense of serenity in your home.
  • More aesthetically pleasing:
    Instead of packing your home full, curate your rooms to provide a beautiful and soothing environment. Display only those objects that bring you joy, and find homes for the rest.
  • Easier to care for:
    Fewer possessions need less of your time to clean, arrange and repair. You have more time to be creative or enjoy other parts of your life.

Where to begin:

Begin with just one room at a time. The bathroom might be the easiest. Remove or store anything from sight that is not essential, and create a soothing palette of colors. You will find yourself relaxing every time you step inside.

Next, take on the master bedroom. This should be your sanctuary from life; your private and serene space. Clear off surfaces, cull items from closets and drawers to donate, remove excess furniture and refresh your bedroom with fresh linens. Some people even recommend removing electronic devices that emit light in order to allow for better sleep.

Once you begin the clearing process, you will want to take it into other areas in your home (or office). You will be pleased by the calming effect it will have on you and your family. But be forewarned: once the clutter is gone, you may find that you have a lot more time on your hands for the important things in life. And as Martha Stewart likes to say, that’s a good thing.

Let 123JUNK Take it All Away

Once you have decided what to get rid of, just pile it up and let 123JUNK take it away for you. There’s no need to sort items for donation, recycling or disposal. Our professional staff is trained to do that for you as part of our “giving” philosophy. We will sort your items once we have removed them, and work with our charitable partners to recycle reusable ones back into the community where they can be loved by other families.
