During these unprecedented times, we take our role as an essential service provider seriously and we remain open to service our customers. We understand that everyone is very concerned with the potential spread of the Coronavirus. We’re following the guidelines put in place by the federal government, local governments and the CDC.
Below are some of the safety precautions we’ve implemented to protect our team and our clients:
After years of hauling away tons and tons of paper, we at 123JUNK decided that we ought to look at our own use of paper in the office. And what we saw was that there was waste in our own organization. So making the decision to go paperless was an easy one.
We’re excited about this new initiative because it has so many benefits – and not only for us. Going paperless means that 123JUNK can streamline our processes and create richer programs for our clients and partners.
We have always delivered receipts to clients who donate items, but now we are able to take a picture of the donation and store that photo in the cloud. We can also generate an electronic receipt and deliver that directly to our clients’ inboxes. All of this information is kept in the same file for easy record-keeping and access.
Internally, creating electronic files helps us to organize our flow and deliver a smoother process for our clients. Using an electronic cloud model we can also audit our processes and provide more accurate information. We can also track documents better; they are no longer likely to get lost or misfiled, and if a disaster like water or fire should occur, the files are stored offsite and can normally be recovered.
We can take the money we save on office supplies and labor and create more benefits for our clients and partners. We can pass those savings on to our clients.
Paper documents are easier to access, which makes them less secure than electronic files, even when there are locks on the cabinets. Password-protected systems help 123JUNK protect vital information.
Obviously, going paperless means waste, and so we leave a smaller footprint on this earth.
123JUNK is constantly looking for ways to improve our environment and this is just one little thing we can do to help.
One way you can help is to keep perfectly good or reusable items from filling our landfills. Donate them to charitable organizations who can repurpose them back into our community. Call 123JUNK and we’ll pick up your items, deliver them to our charity dropboxes in Northern Virginia, DC and Maryland, photograph your donation and return your receipt (electronically!) so you can deduct your donation on your taxes. Call us today to schedule your pickup.
