What Does Junk Removal Cost?

So the time comes when you realize that you have a need for junk removal services; you have some old appliances you need to get rid of, some furniture to haul away, a garage to get cleared out, or an old office space to empty out before moving your business in, and you need help.

The cost for junk removal will vary depending upon the individual job. Any good junk removal service will give you an estimate or quote based on your description of the amount of items you have, but cannot guarantee pricing until they arrive on-site and actually see the job load. Pricing is done per square foot, so you pay for the space that is used in the truck and nothing more than that.

A dumpster drop-off and pick-up service will charge you to rent the dumpster, typically on a weekly basis. Depending on your location, you may also need to get a permit from the city to have the dumpster sitting in front of your home/business during that time.

Junk removal services are typically much more efficient and cost-effective at the same time.

Why Is Junk Removal So Expensive?

Good junk removal requires timely, courteous and competent employees, sufficient truck space and consistent truck upkeep, as well as costs for gas, maintenance, etc.  

When you use a junk removal service you are paying not only for the manual labor, but for the transportation of your items and most importantly to many customers, for the convenience.

Imagine loading up your items yourself, then driving them to the proper disposal locations, taking into account that some items can be donated and others can be recycled (so you aren’t just making one stop), then unloading the items at each stop. When you calculate not only the labor but the time that would go into this process, it becomes incredibly valuable to pay a service like Think Green Junk Removal to come and take care of it for you.

Junk removal specialists are knowledgeable in how to properly dispose of hazardous materials as well as which items can be donated and where they can be donated to, or which items can be recycled. You are also paying for their expertise in these cases.

Well-trained junk removal specialists will also do a clean sweep of the area after loading everything into the truck, so they aren’t leaving you with a mess. Just one more thing that you don’t have to worry about!

Typically a do-it-yourself dumpster rental will be more expensive, since they are usually weekly rentals, and you are handling all of the junk removal yourself. You also may need to get a permit from the city to have the dumpster in front of your home/business.

To make your life easier by using Think Green Junk Removal all you need to do is get the quote, schedule a pick up time, point to the items to be removed, and let us handle the rest.
