Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.  

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.

Can I use digital payments to pay for junk removal services?

Today, digital payment platforms are gaining popularity across many services, including junk removal companies. Digital payment services such as PayPal, Square Cash, Venmo, Zelle and Google Pay are common options for customers.

Conduct an online search for junk removal services in your area, and ask whether they accept digital payments. Make sure you have a plan in place to take all necessary precautions to comply with any mandated social distancing guidelines.

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. 

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 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.

Find a junk removal service near you and start asking for free estimates.

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.

I enjoyed working with Junk removal / Manzanitas Hauling. He responded to every question promptly and the removal was done very quickly

Despite a violation of privacy and having some significant items stolen, D.A.C Hauling has been very prompt, polite, and understanding when it came to the compensation after this incident. I had a pleasant conversation with an associate and we immediately discussed what was taken, the value of the items, and how we were going to move forward with a proper compensation. I'm still waiting for my compensation, but I believe in good faith and I have seen evidence that I will be compensated immediately and that's why I'm posting this review in advance. Despite a bittersweet moving process, I do recommend this hauling and moving company to get the job done.

The came on time. He was a le to fit a ton of junk into 1 truck. Wore mask and was friendly and professional. He broke down all the boxes in the backyard and hauled out about 20+ garbage bags and boxes of junk. Rates were good and I was happy with the service. I would recommend them to anyone.

Andre and Marcio were AWESOME! I was working on a tight deadline to get a client's apartment cleared out and they were the right people for the job. They responded super quickly to my request for info and were able to do the hauling the same day. They're both professional, efficient and really nice guys. I highly recommend their services.

Damien and his assistant showed up on time and ready to work. The job turned out to be more of a challenge than we'd anticipated, but they got it done with a smile. I highly recommend MNJ Hauling for clean-up and removal jobs. They provide a great service and a competitive price, and you can feel good about your money being used to help people who are working hard to help themselves.

I needed a TON of junk hauled (a trailer full) from my yard. A job that would've taken my family an entire week to do, Jon and his team were able to complete in less than an hour! They also finished the job with fantastic attitudes, and were always open to directions. Not only that, but they finished the job at a price that was better than anyone else in the Bay Area. I highly recommend Delta Force Restoration and I'm so happy I chose them!
