Need an old mattress, box springs, bed frame or adjustable bed hauled away? When you get a new mattress, the biggest question most people ask is, what to do with the old one. Most of the time it’s a lot of work to get rid of your old mattress.
First, you’ve got get it out of the house. And mattresses are usually heavy, especially a king size. It can be over 100 lbs. Then you have to fit your mattress and box springs into your vehicle (you may need a truck for that). Last, you need to take it to the nearest dump and pay the fee.
I’ve learned the hard way that the dump isn’t a place I want to go to again. Ours makes you get out of the vehicle and dump out your mattress onto the piles of garbage all by yourself. So there’s more lifting but it’s slippery and harder to move. Plus, it’s the grossest, dirtiest smelliest place to be. They should’ve told us to wear waders! I had to remove my shoes to get back in the car.
I recommend using a junk removal service like LoadUp, to save yourself the hassle and trauma of having to do it yourself. LoadUp is available in over 170 cities nationwide, with guaranteed up front pricing that’s 20% cheaper than most competitors and without any need for a sales person to visit first to haggle over annoying estimates.

Curbside Pick Up
You Don’t Have to Be Home or Wait for Someone to Pick up your Junk
But perhaps my favorite part is that LoadUp will either pick up items from your home OR they offer curbside pick up. So if you’re busy or don’t want to have to be home for the pick up, you can schedule online and put your items on your curb. No waiting around and everything is out of your house. Their app will notify you when the driver is on their way and when they pick it up. They use real time GPS so you know when they arrive and when your items are picked up.
