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:
We’re offering discounts for our customers who are able to stage their items outside of their property for pickup
We’re vetting our customers before scheduling appointments and while en-route to make sure they’re not showing signs and symptoms of illness
If the customer has access to masks or face covers, we ask that they wear them (if masks are unavailable, please maintain a safe distance of 6 feet at all times)
We are sending home any staff member exhibiting any symptoms of illness for the recommended period of time established by the CDC
All team members have been assigned masks and gloves
We are not assigning more than two team members to a truck
Our trucks and equipment are being disinfected daily
We’ve shut down our office from outside visitors and anybody who can work virtually is being encouraged to work from home
The company continues to hold regular team-wide virtual meetings to emphasize transparency and keep the lines of communication open
The decision to come to work remains 100% voluntary
At 123JUNK, you probably know by now that donation is a major point of emphasis. It is, after all, the “1,” in our three-step process. We encourage our truck crew to donate as much as they possibly can after removing the items from our clients’ homes. In many cases, the donation component of our process is what made a client decide to choose us over a competitor. We appreciate and value that choice, and we treat our commitment to serving the local community with great respect. Playing a role in prolonging the lifecycle of the items we collect is rewarding for us, and it undeniably enriches the experience of working at 123JUNK.
This month, our truck crew has more at stake than the satisfaction of knowing they helped to keep a table out of the landfill, or that they played a role in furnishing the home of a family that otherwise wouldn’t have been able to afford a living room set. Joe (pictured above), who many of our clients probably know from his unforgettable personality, has issued a challenge to his fellow Junkmen. If each of our Truck Foremen are able to donate from a certain number of jobs on which they’ve worked, Joe has promised to allow them to shave his head bald! With a head of hair like his, needless to say this is quite a gamble on his part. He just feels so strongly about the 123JUNK pledge to turn “junk” into opportunity that he is willing to risk his hair for the cause! We are proud of Joe and his call to action for his co-workers.
Now that the sun is shinning and the weather is warm, you’re probably seeing all those “Yard Sale” signs popping up around your neighborhood. Whether your moving, re-organizing, or you just want to clean out your garage, basement, or crowded storage room, a Yard Sale is a great way to de-clutter. At the same time you can make a few extra bucks to go towards that beach vacation you’ve been saving up for this summer!
Here are some useful tips to help make your yard sale successful:
Chantilly, VA – What is the first thing you think when you read or hear the words “junk removal?” If it’s a scrap yard or Fred Sanford, think again.
123Junk is a full-service junk removal company based in Chantilly, VA. It is a local company with firm roots in northern Virginia; in fact, its founder attended Chantilly High School. They go into homes, offices, apartments, garages, attics—you name it. They remove unwanted items and haul them away for a flat fee, which is based on the amount of space the items occupy in their trucks.
In March 2010, 123JUNK partnered with the Northern Virginia affiliate of Habitat for Humanity. Since then, we’ve been telling everyone we can about our partnership. It’s a big part of who we are as a company, and the partnership keeps us focused on the things that really make a difference; namely, finding a purpose for the items we pick up that doesn’t involve burying them in a landfill.
Habitat for Humanity raises money partly through a series of resale locations known as Habitat for Humanity ReStore. These stores specialize in selling new or gently used items for 50 – 90% less than standard retail prices. Continue reading →
