We Recycle, Reuse and Reduce
The Junk Box not only has 25+ years of experience in recycling and garbage removal in Victoria, but also in witnessing lives unfold. This means we are often called to help manage the overwhelmingly difficult and stressful task families have of clearing out an estate in relation to the passing of, or relocation of, a loved one. Another scenario, in which we have also been considered helpful, is a strained separation or divorce when things just have to go!
We recognize the myriad of emotions that arise from life change and we remain sensitive and compassionate to each individual situation. We remain a professional, non-judgmental and trustworthy source of support to you, helping make the tough task of separating and sorting through personal estate materials and otherwise, less onerous on you physically and emotionally! This will free you up to focus on some of the other important and pressing time-sensitive matters specific to your situation!
Where should you start? Here are some steps and things to consider when you feel at a loss:
Contact us and let us know your situation/circumstance. Have the desired date of clean out in mind.
Consider what you would like to keep and what you would like to sell, donate to local charity or to simply have us haul away, sort and recycle. With your input and feedback, we can tailor the work you need done, keeping your most treasured, precious items and memorabilia safe and protected.
If your time allows, we can refer you to an appraiser that can help with the sale of unwanted valuables, such as, furniture, paintings, china, etc.
Whether you are local or from out of town without local contacts, we will work with your schedule and your timeline. We work easily and flexibly with trustees, estate planners and executors. We can offer an extensive list and range of referrals to aid in a smooth transition. Other referrals we offer are: moving companies, painters, cleaners, realtors.
When we arrive, we do a walk through with you or your representative. We offer a firm price on the work to be done so there are no surprises at the end.
We provide you with a written receipt for your records and our business card for ease of reference.
