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.

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.

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.

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. 

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.

Hauled our old couch.

We were very satisfied with the services of In-home hauling. The only problem was that their initial quote was way off but after some back and forth we decided on a price that we were comfortable with. They were on time to come for an estimate. The work ethic was fantastic. We had a very heavy and sturdy dog house that needed dismantling before hauling and that took some time but was done without any hesitations. Everything was sweeped and cleaned once the job was done to make sure there is no residual dirt anywhere. They are the first hauling service we will call next time we have to get something hauled.

They delivered on their promise to do a thorough job of cleaning our backyard and hauling the junk and debris. Milton and his assistant were all business, resulting in their achieving a very satisfactory job.

Strong Hands was on-time and managed the haul with complete professionalism and courtesy. They were careful of items in and around the home as they moved the furniture out and were extremely polite. I will definitely call them back for future projects. You won’t be disappointed if you use their services!

Highly recommend!! Had this couch to be hauled away. Sam and his colleague (Strong and tall gentlemen) came in and within 5 mins (no exaggeration) the couch was gone. Clean and quick!! They were friendly and had flexible payment options. Their rate was also very reasonable and no added or hidden costs. And, they followed COVID-19 protocol and wore masks so felt very safe.

The workers did an excellent job hauling away some landscape rocks and boulders. They were very professional and handled the job the best they could despite the boulders being much heavier and harder to handle than expected. They had a good attitude even though it was a difficult job. I’m very satisfied with their work and would use this company again. Very professional from beginning to end. Thank you.

I hired Arisel to haul some dirt I had piled in the back of my house from a project my wife and I had been working on in the lawn. He was able to come to my house right away and quote. Price was reasonable and he was back the next day with help to get the dirt hauled away. We had him quote the pending projects we have been working on in the yard. (Installing base rock/sand, install big slate patio pavers, install gravel/pebbles, sod, landscape borders, and more...) We ended up using him to complete everything! It turned out really really nice. We were a little nervous in the beginning since we don't have much experience hiring help for our projects but Arisel kept in great contact and communicated wonderfully. He brought the right people to help with the jobs too. We will probably have him do any new project in the future.

I had a ten rank pipe organ in storage since 2012 and knew I wouldn't be setting it up again. It used a lot of space; so I called In Home Hauling Service to take it away. Nilton and his helper arrived right at the appointed time, and in a few minutes over two hours they had the entire organ plus an old oven and range hood packed into their big box truck. The organ occupied about a third of my garage plus a back yard shed with a 72sqf floor They worked fast and cleaned up nicely after loading the truck. I would call them again for a similar task.
