Mr. N. says, "FIRST OFF, LET ME START BY SAYING IF I COULD GIVE THESE GUYS OVER 5 STARS, I ABSOLUTELY AND MOST DEFINITELY WOULD....MORE LIKE 15 TO 20 STARS EASILY!! I searched and searched and searched for weeks trying to find a tree trimming service that not only would be able to come out in a timely manner, but also wouldn't try and rob me blindly for my money! Finally, when I was just about to give up and I was going to go with some guys who were going to do only four of my 10 trees for a total of $400 which included taking the trash and trimmings as well, I stumbled across Cesar and his guys...it was a good thing I did too! Not only were Cesar and his guys willing to come out within a day or two tops, but they charged me an amazing price for nine palm trees, as well as one regular tree too. Everybody else was trying to charge me at minimum, $80 per palm tree, for a total of at least $1,000, and none of them even included picking up all of the trash and trimmings when they were done! However, Cesar and his crew did all nine of my palm trees, and my one other tree, as well as two baby palm trees, and some shrubbery, for a total of 12 trees, and some other stuff as well, at an absolutely ridiculous low price! Wayyyy below what everyone else was charging!!! Not only that, but they also took all of the trash, tree trimmings, shrubbery, and pretty much everything else, with them too!!! They also even used their air blower on my whole property, and made sure everything was cleaned up the right way and well! Again, it was a good thing I found Cesar and his guys when I did.....I can't say thank you enough for all of your help and hard work Cesar. I also really appreciate the fact that you guys didn't try to rob me like everybody else, for only doing a half ass job too. You guys have definitely earned my business for good, and you will be also hearing from a lot of different people I send your way...thanks again so much, and remember....referrals are definitely coming your way!!!! Stay safe and keep up the good work!"See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to haul off junk?

The average cost to haul away junk is $150, though this price can be expected to vary between around $75 and $375, depending on several factors. 

The first factor is the quantity of junk removed. Most junk removal services charge by the truckload, and most residential projects only require filling up part of a truckload.

Another factor is the type of junk. E-waste like computers and TVs may cost more to dispose of, as will more hazardous materials like mercury, paint and used motor oil. It also may cost more to remove big items like beds and couches.

To find out how much it will cost to get rid of your junk, get free estimates from the best junk removal companies near you.

How do you prepare for junk removal?

To prepare for junk removal, start by listing all the items you should get rid of. Organize your list by which items are appropriate for the junk collection team and which may have some resale value or could be donated. 

Move through your house and hit problem spots like closets, attics and basements. Make a pile of items you plan to keep, give away, sell, donate and have the junk removers pick up. Finally, contact at least three junk removal companies for price quotes.

How do you throw away a couch?

You can get rid of a couch by hiring a junk removal pro who can get it safely out of your house and dispose of it. There are other options as well, including renting a trailer and hauling it to a proper disposal facility, or leaving it out for someone to pick up. 

However, a junk removal service is the easiest option. This keeps you from having to lift a heavy object or risk scuffing up your walls. Furthermore, a licensed junk removal service can responsibly dispose of a couch, saving you from having to find a site.

How can I get rid of junk fast?

To get rid of your junk fast, start by organizing and making a list of what you have. Sell what you can, and give away items that you value but you don’t want to friends and family. 

If you don’t have the means to transport items or if you have too much junk to get rid of on your own, it’s time to hire a pro. A junk removal service can quickly and efficiently get rid of junk for you, including lifting heavy objects and making sure nothing is damaged.

Do you tip junk removal guys?

You may want to tip your junk removal team if they did an exceptional job. For instance, if they show up on time, are courteous and professional, take extra care not to damage your possessions and home, and leave a clean site afterwards, you may feel like giving them a tip. A reasonable tip might be $20 per crew member.

It’s also nice to tip them on especially hot days, or when the weather is inclement. You can also provide food and drinks for them.

How can I find out if a junk removal service is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Junk removal may be considered essential in certain cases during the COVID-19 pandemic. A good place to start is by searching your city or state government’s website for a list of guidelines.

For national guidelines, visit CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage, which identifies 16 types of essential infrastructure sectors that can continue operating during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.  

Does a junk removal service need to enter my home?

A junk remover may not need to enter your home if all of the materials are located outside. If a junk remover needs access to your home and the project is deemed essential, you’ll need to discuss a strategy for safety. For example, avoid being near each other, sanitize involved surfaces and conduct payments using digital platforms. Discuss potential strategies with junk removal companies in your area.

Do junk removers offer remote or virtual services?

Because junk removal requires manual labor, it is not typically a remote service. However, if you see a profile that states the junk removal company is offering remote services, ask the company what those services include. And schedule a phone or video consultation with local junk removers, and ask what precautions can be taken to comply with social distancing guidelines. 

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a junk removal service when social distancing?

If you hire a junk removal company near you, take precautions to avoid person-to-person contact, sanitize involved surfaces and use virtual payments. If possible, it might also be a good idea to move the items that are getting picked up outside so the junk remover doesn’t need to enter your home.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a junk removal service during the COVID-19 pandemic?

You can set up consultations and appointments with a junk removal service near you during the COVID-19 pandemic by messaging the professional of your choice in an online search. Ask if they are willing to set up a video call to assess the project and answer any questions you have. Discuss a strategy for staying safe during the job, including sticking to guidelines on social distancing as well as paying through digital platforms instead of cash or check.
