ACHIEVEMENT No. 70

Starting your own business is a challenge. Whether it’s a lemonade stand or sandwich shop, the same fundamentals apply. Customer satisfaction is a priority. And it is no different for Junk King Raleigh.

Opened in July 2012, Junk King of Raleigh is America’s fastest and greenest junk removal service. The franchise features 40 locations across the United States after opening it’s first operation in San Carlos, CA in 2005. Kornaga sat down with me to detail the history behind the Raleigh location.

“From a business standpoint it was a no-brainer,” Kornaga exclaimed. “It fit everything I was interested in. It is a great platform to learn more about green initiatives. And I am gaining an logistics and transportation experience.”

Junk King of Raleigh hauls everything and anything. The full range of junk removal includes real estate, construction, remodeling, furniture, appliances and yard waste. Junk King cares about the environment and recycles over 60 percent of all items. The franchise even uses Biodiesel to power all trucks.

“I believe we are the lowest price per volume junk hauler in the area,” remarked Kornaga. “The trucks run on Biodiesel, which is a reflection of our green philosophy. No job is too big or small for us. We’ve even expanded to offer mobile home demolition services.”

Kornaga and his crew offer same-day service Monday through Saturday, from 8 a.m. to sundown. Junk King of Raleigh services an extensive area from the Triangle (NC) to down east. Customers can call a 1-800-995-JUNK, the local number to speak with Kornaga directly or schedule service and view estimates online.

As a fresh business owner, Kornaga makes use of mobile technology. The crew at Junk King of Raleigh utilizes an iPad and smart phones to increase efficiency. From estimates to directions to accepting payments, the technology is an advantage.

“We use our devices to take photos out in the field for accurate and free estimates,” Kornaga noted. “Our staff collects payments on-site through a swipe or photo to offer flexibility to our customers. The technology is changing and we can do so much on the devices.”

America’s fastest and greenest junk removal service is now just down the road in Raleigh. Tek Kornaga and his staff’s number one priority is you. The customer. Call Junk King of Raleigh.
