Do you need to remove junk from your Home?


My name is Lu Annatone and I am the owner/operator of a company called The Junk Removers.  It’s only natural that when I hear the word "Home" I think of all the people who need my company’s services to keep their personal residences neat and uncluttered on a big scale!  Whether it’s just time for spring cleaning or an actual major overhaul emptying a home for resale, residents need help disposing of all kinds of items.

Having junk taken away from your property can be a time-consuming and stressful chore.  Appliances, tires, rolled carpet – what do you do with large items?  You need to find a reputable company that values you as a customer and delivers good customer service.

 The ideal junk removal company will remove junk quickly. 

The junk removal industry considers the amount of time from customer contact to actual removal as one of the yard sticks of a good service provider.  By the time a customer picks up the phone the pile of debris is usually ready to go.  Good companies can coordinate a pick-up or an estimate within 24 to 48 hours of your call.

The ideal removal company will remove almost anything. 

A good service provider will not turn away from any type of junk except hazardous materials.  They will be responsive to customer requirements and will work with you to remove and dispose of your junk properly — in all shapes, sizes or forms.  If you ask what they take, the answer should be “It’s easier to tell you what we don’t take!” which most likely will be hazardous materials such as bleach, oil, fertilizer, etc.

The ideal removal company will have the necessary resources.

The junk removal service company should have the necessary tools, equipment and vehicles for the job. Removal and disposal relies on such resources to actually get the job done.  A key point here is whether they do any size job, from moving an old couch to the contents of an entire house. They need to be prepared to drop a dumpster for larger jobs or be nimble enough to get through narrow city streets.

The ideal removal company will have certifiable skills.

A good junk removal company has a trained and experienced crew to capably handle the customer’s removal needs and provide quality work.  Training a crew starts with a commitment to customer service and continues with how carefully they remove the items as to not make more of a mess, scratch walls, etc.  Training includes loading a truck so it’s packed to carry the largest load which results in charging the lowest possible cost.

The ideal removal company will be price competitive. 

The pricing format should be simple for the customer to understand, based on volume or the amount of space filled in the truck. Some companies price the job based on the time it takes and the weight of the debris.  This is confusing and open ended for the consumer.

The ideal removal company will dispose of junk properly. 

The company must have an established system of junk disposal, disposing of all types of materials in a responsible manner, with a mind for environmental protection. They have relationships with recycling centers and other facilities to ensure they reuse and recycle the junk removed.  At a minimum over half of the junk removed should able to be diverted from a landfill.  The company should be able to tell you what happens to the things they pick-up.

The ideal removal company will clean-up, Clean-up!  

A good, professional junk remover will clean up and sweep the areas from which the junk is removed and leave the space ready for the customer to reuse.

Companies that follow these guidelines are always striving to improve their customer’s experience.  Verify that they carry workers comp and liability insurance, then hire  that company to help you remove your junk and keep your home in order!  You’ll be pleased with the result!
