Junkery...the Art of JUNK REMOVAL

 

Junkery is an award-winning leader in customized junk removal services and has been a Trusted Member of Serving Seniors since 2016.

 

100% LOCAL - JUNKERY IS NOT A

FRANCHISE  As a local business,

Junkery does not resell any items it

collects and has donation partnerships 

with many local community organizations such as Parker Street Food & Furniture Bank and Habitat for Humanity Restore.  Junkery is a 100% locally owned and operated, family-run small business.

NOT ALL JUNK IS JUNK.  A home holds a lifetime of memories. When it’s time to move for whatever the reason – simplifying, health issues, a recent passing of a 

loved one, downsizing, a renovation project, or it’s just time to clear the clutter - the not so fun part begins… sorting all the stuff, all the boxes, deciding what to keep and what to let go, and what to do with all the items left over.
Junkery can help you by working with you and your family to create a customized junk removal plan that makes the process easier.

HELP ME CHOOSE!

Your situation is unique and Junkery can help you find the right junk removal solution for your specific need, timeline, and budget. Not all junk is the same and there are many different reasons why you might need junk removal. 

  • do-it-yourself renovation project

  • buying/selling a house

  • estate clear out

  • moving

  • excess clutter/hoarding

  • office junk

You can choose from:

JUNKERY BAGS - an alternative to dumpsters - fill it on your own schedule, hold up to 3,300lbs! 

FULL SERVICE JUNK REMOVAL -  when you don’t have time to do it yourself - rest easy, Junkery sorts and recycles everything for you!  You only pay for how much space your stuff takes up in the truck.

 

With a conscientious focus on diverting as much material from the landfill as possible, by sorting all materials it collects, Junkery makes the process even easier for customers to ensure that any usable furniture and household items make their way to new homes, or get refurbished, electronics are responsibly disposed, metals, plastics, construction and debris materials are all taken to recycling facilities, paper is confidentially shredded and recycled.

Serving Seniors Alliance Trusted Me - Premiere Membe

Moving is stressful, that is a fact of life. However when you are ready to move, there may be an extra degree of anxiety associated with the experience. If you stop to consider that some seniors may have lived in their home for 40, or 50 years you can appreciate that the idea of moving can be overwhelming.

 

Regardless of whether you're are moving into a personally owned condo, a retirement community complex or an assisted living facility, planning is the key to making the move as stress free as possible.

It is preferable for there to be a family member available who can assist you in getting ready for

the move. Purging a household where things have been collected over decades takes time and effort, and if there isn’t a family member who can assist with this task then it may be wise to consider hiring someone to help with the sorting and making the necessary arrangements. There are a number of companies who specialize in this area, just be sure to check out their credentials and track record before bringing them into your home. Personal recommendations are the best way to decide if a particular individual or company is right for you.

CATEGORIZE ITEMS

Deciding what to do with the contents of your home is a big job so getting started as far in advance as possible will make things a little easier. Like with any move, sorting by category makes the most sense.

  • Furniture and other items will be kept and moved to your new home.

  • Furniture and other items will be given to family members and/or friends.

  • Items that are suitable for sale.

  • Items that will be donated to a charity.

  • Items that are no longer useable and should be disposed of.

SELLING ITEMS
In terms of selling furniture and other items there are a number of options. If there are some genuine antiques or very fine furniture and other valuable items, holding an estate sale in the home or at an auction house may result in higher sale revenues. Just remember you must pay a commission to the person or company who is handling the sale for you. They will market and conduct the sale on your behalf.  A traditional garage sale is another option but unless there are family or friends who can assist, most seniors will find this choice to be too much work. Donating to a charity will be easier.

HOW PREMIERE MOVING & STORAGE CAN HELP

A key component for a stress free move for you is the right moving company. When moving seniors choosing a company like Premiere Van Lines makes a lot of sense. Premiere will assign a professional moving consultant who will work closely with you to help you plan each stage of the move. These individuals have the experience and empathy needed to reassure you that everything will be taken care of to your satisfaction.

SAFE, EFFECTIVE, LOW-IMPACT WORKOUT FOR SENIORS - NORDIC WALKING

Bill VanGorder got his start in Nordic pole walking after he realized years of running were putting a strain on his knees. He first started on Nordic pole walking as a warm-up, but then noticed it had bigger benefits. “I soon discovered I was getting more of a workout from Nordic walking than running,” VanGorder says. “I feel I’m in better shape today than I was 30 years ago, when I was running marathons.”  Bill and his wife, Esther, now operate Nordic Walking Nova Scotia.

Walk to a café or market. Bicycle through towns and villages. Many tours now incorporate a wellness program too.

There are so many choices for food, entertainment and activities. There are many itineraries to choose form to suit everyone's style.  
 

GROUP OR INDEPENDENT TRAVELLER TOURS

There are many choices for group travel with common interest for example, book clubs, fitness, spiritual, ladies only, reunions, wine tours and many more.
 
If travelling in groups is not your thing then why not consider a independent traveller tour where you can travel with another person or with your own small group. Yvonne can develop an itinerary specific to your needs. If you need special assistance that can be arranged as well.
