Despite repeated phone calls, i have not been able to get anyone from my local Best Buy on the phone, to arrange for hauling away my two tvs. so i called one of those junk removal companies. surprisingly, they were the same cost, and he agreed to waive the $25 for each tv fee for separating the lead etc. so it will cost me the same as best buy, plus they will take a small filing cabinet I have as well.
and they had a slot on Sat, so they are coming then, and i can have my apartment back and in full, decluttered order!!!!
