Hello World! Junk Queen of Massachusetts here!
Honestly, I'm a little nervous about my first blog post as the Queen but we'll see how this goes.
First off, a little about me and my family: I'm married to my King and we have two little Princesses (ages 3 yrs old and 14 months old). We run a Junk King franchise based out of Chelmsford (Lowell), MA. The King and I both grew up in the Merrimack Valley area and we love it here. We've been at it for a little over 2 years and it's been an amazing ride so far. Junk King is a full service junk removal company, which basically means that we come to your house or business, you point at the stuff you want taken away, and we carry it out and put it on the truck. It's so easy.
We're excited about our business for a couple reasons:
1. Junk King has a commitment to recycling, we strive to recycle over 60% of what we haul away from people's houses and businesses - that's a huge chunk of stuff that doesn't contribute to filling up landfills. The King and I are strong believers in doing what's right for the planet and for the world our kids are going to inherit from us someday. Between recycling and donations to non-profits we save a lot from going to the transfer station or landfill.
2. We feel like we truly help people. We've done jobs for all different types of people from cleaning out a house for a client with an elderly parent who is being transitioned to a full time care community to real estate investors cleaning out a house so that they can renovate the house and re-sell it to grow their own business. It's overwhelming when you have a lot of stuff to get rid of and you don't know what the next step should be, seeing the look of satisfaction on our customer's faces is a great experience.
3. Junk King is an honest company. The two guys (Mike and Brian) who started the company are great down to earth guys who are always there if we need help or advice about something.
4. The Junk King company itself is like a second family to us. Junk King is based in San Carlos, CA and has franchises all over the United States that are run by genuine, honest, amazing people with all kinds of different stories and experiences. It's wonderful to be a business owner out on your own but also know that you are not alone.
My goal is to keep this blog interesting and relevant to not only what's happening in the junk removal industry but in our beautiful New England communities.
Hope you all enjoy it!
