Last week a customer filled out our online booking form to schedule an appointment to remove their hot tub. They included in the description that the hot tub was on their back patio sitting on a concrete slab. They also informed us that it was still connected to the electricity. We gave them a courtesy call to let them know that we received their booking and told them the time we will arrive.
We received a call from a new customer named Sandra. She told us that she works for a company that just bought a retirement home for elders and that they needed to remove all the junk out of the garage and get it hauled off. She told us she was pretty flexible with her time but we still were able to book her in a spot for the next morning. She was very excited that we Continue reading “Hauling Junk Out of a Garage in Atlanta” »

I’ve been down in this awesome state called Georgia for 26 years now. Although I don’t live inside Atlanta, it is only a 15 minute drive from the end of my driveway to the big beautiful city. I spend most of my weekends venturing around Atlanta because there is a lot to do. This is how you know you’re from Atlanta…
- Lets face it, Atlanta traffic is something everyone living here has experienced. Whether you are coming from the city or going in the city, you more than likely have sat in standstill traffic. Our 8am rush hour starts at 6:30am and lasts until 10:30am. The 5pm rush hour is from 3pm-7pm. This includes Saturdays.
- Everyone in Atlanta knows the famous road Ponce De Leon Ave. But if you live in the city, you call it Ponce.
- You know you’re from Atlanta if you remember the BIG 4 radio stations as Star 94, Z93, 96 Rock and Fox 97.
- You hope you are the one to find the car that is the subject of the latest “Amber Alert” which has been flashing for ten minutes on the DOT message board or now days you get an Amber Alert on your phone that scares the crap out of you because you never heard your phone make that noise before.
- If there is the slightest chance of snow, all schools will close and the parking lot of the nearest grocery store will be full but once you make it inside, all the bread is already sold out.
- The only time you eat at waffle house is Saturday or Sunday morning with a bad hang over.
- You had a field trip to the Varsity when you were a kid to experience one of Atlanta’s biggest landmarks.
- You thought about getting a blow up doll for your front seat just to cruise down the HOV lane without getting a ticket.
- If someone orders unsweet tea and you think they are crazy.
- You know Atlantans don’t have a southern accent except for the term “y’all”.
- You know that the Big Chicken is located in Marietta.
- You don’t like outsiders using the term “Hotlanta” to refer to our city.
- You think the world is flat and the ends are the I-285 perimeter.
- During the Georgia- Florida game there is complete silence in the last 5 remaining minutes.
- When Spring starts and you see that small amount of yellow powdery substance on your car, you know you will be taking allergy pills for the next month.
- You know you’re going to “hipster” land when you make your way to the Vortex to clog an artery.
I’m sure you all can add to the list. If you have anything else that needs to be added, feel free to leave a comment below!
When you have junk scattered around the house or even outside of the house in the backyard or front, it can be a safety hazard for a few different reasons. When your junk is outside and has been sitting out there for awhile it can generate bad bacteria and germs. The same can happen when your junk is inside and not getting the proper cleaning attention. Here we will go over a few safety tips on staying clean with junk around your home.
- Always Wash Your Hands: When your handling junk outside, of course it will have germs on it that you don’t want to spread around your house and get people sick. You can keep colds away with simply washing your hands when handling items that are infected with bad bacteria. Make sure you have your kids wash their hands when they play in a clean area so you can always keep the area germ free. When you wash your hands, use warm water and rub your hands good with soap for about 30 seconds. Always dry your hands with a clean towel.
- Get Rid of Scattered Junk: If you do have scattered junk around the outside of your property, you should move it all in one pile. Having one pile of junk is better than having junky germs all across your yard. Also, call a junk removal company as soon as possible to get rid of the junk out of your yard!
- Clean Your Old Furniture/Appliances: Even though you have broken old appliances or furniture that you are ready to junk out, keep those items clean also if they are in your home. Items that are not cleaned often absorb dust and get dirty. Wipe them down with a wash cloth to get rid of the dust build up. Once you are ready to throw them out, give us a call and we will come remove them from you anytime!
After reading the above tips, you should know by now it’s better to stay clean than dirty. Attracting germs in your living area will get you and your family sick. Have fun and stay germ free!
We were notified by a new customer named Kait to get rid of some junk they left behind after selling their house in Marietta. She told us she had all sorts of stuff located in her garage and she needed it removed soon because they were closing on the house. We booked her in the first available spot which was the very next day of her call.
Once our crew arrived to her property, they reviewed all the junk that was in the garage. It was just normal household debris stacked up in the middle of the floor and also a large copier in the corner of the garage. The crew hauled off all the debris in the middle of the floor and then grabbed the dolly to put the over sized copier in the truck. After everything was loaded up, there were just a few more items upstairs in the house. The crew handled that real quick and wrapped up the job.
Kait was very pleased with our fast performance and professionalism. She asked us for a hand full of business cards to hand out to her friends and future neighbors. She recommends Advance Junk Removal for everybody’s junk removal needs. We are happy that we put another smile on someones face!

Everyone is busy these days, so it can be tough to make sure you keep your home and its surroundings free of junk. It’s a good idea to cultivate a few habits that will help things stay clean, neat and organized. If you work on reducing junk for an hour or two a month, you’ll find that you save a lot of time in the long run. Let’s discuss a few ideas that can help.
1)Recycle Loose Paper
Many people go through a lot of printer paper throughout the course of their year. It’s a great idea to get a recycling bin and go through any papers at the end of the day or week to make sure you are getting rid of printed materials you don’t need.
2) Break Down and Eliminate Boxes
If you receive a lot of deliveries, odds are that you have a number of old cardboard boxes around. Break down these boxes and recycle them at the end of the week. Only keep them if you are planning on packing up for a move in the immediate future.
3) Donate Old Clothes
Closets can become completely full of older items, making it hard to keep your clothes organized and just as tricky to get newer, better-fitting items into your home. Luckily, it’s especially easy to get rid of old clothing. Most cities have many local organizations that will accept them.
4) Keep Things Clean
The more you keep household surfaces clean and dusted, the less clutter you will want in your home and the more motivated you will be to get rid of junk before it starts to pile up. If you feel like you just can’t get around to tackling junk, start slow with light cleaning instead.
5) Get a Fresh Start
Sometimes, the easiest way to deal with junk is to start over from the beginning. That’s when you should call your friendly neighborhood junk removal professionals here at Advance Junk Removal. We can help you with even the toughest junk removal tasks, whether you need us to get rid of yard waste, clear out old appliances or even clean out your entire property.
Here in the Atlanta area, you just can’t go wrong with Advance Junk Removal. Not only can we help you with the widest range of junk removal tasks, but we also recycle 60% of all the junk we collect, so you can feel confident you’re doing your part for the environment.
As we all know, Advance Junk Removal is a green company. This means we do things such as recycle and donate the things we can, but there are other ways to go green in our daily lives. Here are a few ways to go green:
- Transportation: Everyone uses transportation almost on a daily basis. This could either mean driving to work or walking to a friends house, we all need to get around somehow. But if you are going to the same place as a co-worker or friend, why not carpool and take one car? This is a nice step to save air pollution. Also, you should check your tires more often in your vehicle. When one or more tires or low, believe or not, your car works harder which uses more gas.
- Electricity: Everyone uses electricity every single day whether it’s a computer or a TV. We recommend people to switch their electricity to a green source. Switching your energy to solar for an example is a great way to reduce your Carbon Footprint. Also, using less electricity is great for the environment. For an example, you can air dry your clothes instead of using the dryer which uses a lot of power, or maybe even switching your light bulbs in your home to the energy saving bulbs. Either way, you will be saving more energy!
- Saving The Trees: Our last topic I will be writing about is saving the trees. Millions of trees are cut down to only send junk mail every year. There is not too much action we can do about that but we can save paper ourselves. Try paying all of your bills online, these days most people have an internet connection and are computer friendly so why not give it a shot! When our company gets any paper or cardboard from a hauling job, we send it straight to the recycling facility so it can be used again.
We had a call come in last week from a customer named Gary who lives in Atlanta. He told us he got his bathroom and another room in his house remodeled and that he had the construction debris stacked up in a pile in his garage and it needed to be removed. We booked him in a spot that was opened on the following day.
When we arrived to Gary’s house, we could easily see the pile from the road. We backed the truck up close to the garage and knocked on the door. He came outside very happy to see us and told us what was included in the pile. There were bags of tile and miscellaneous debris, a very heavy cast iron tub, sheetrock, wood and a lot of other debris.
The wood was the very first thing we loaded the truck up with and there was a lot of it. We then moved onto other debris which eventually filled the truck up. We had to go to the dump and come back for a second load to finish the job. Once we got there for the second load we loaded the tub first which we placed on a dolly and then we loaded everything else up which was mostly bags of tile and sheetrock.
After all the debris was put in the truck to be hauled away, we swept up the garage to make it nice and clean. He now was able to fit his car back into the garage without any problems. Gary was very satisfied with our service. He asked us for a hand full of business cards so he can refer our company to his neighbors and friends.
We are proud to say we had yet another successful job completed in Atlanta. We love to give our customers the best service possible which is what makes us stand out differently from our competitors. Better service, best prices and that’s why we are the number one junk removal company!
