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.

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 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 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.

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.

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.

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.

I used Nick’s Junk Removal Service yesterday. Great experience. The initial response was fast, the quote fair and very professional. They got the job done and cleaned up the area after they had removed my extremely heavy Hot Springs hot tub. I would highly recommend this company and would use again if the need arises.

Saint Louis and Kerling were the two men arrived at my home from SEUD Junk Removal and Hauling to remove some debri. They were behind schedule but communicated and upon their arrival their presentation and courteous behavior were very appealing and professional. They not only remove the debri already prepared but assisted above and beyond with helping me to bag up th remaining portion. I was very satisfied with the work and will definitely be using again whenever needed

Dr. Junk was called to remove some old office furniture from our office. We had 6 office chairs and a big metal shelf. The job was done in about 10 minutes (if that). Not to mention, the service was excellent. I would definitely recommend to anyone.

I flew to South Florida to pick up my mom who was moving to Atlanta. To my horror, there was so much to still do AFTER the movers departed. I needed to discard of a lot of stuff ASAP. After Googling for same day junk hauling, I found 98 Junk Removal. Renford, the owner, was quickly responsive and accommodating. He's also very patient, for which I'm grateful. I like that he keeps the line of communication open. That's key for me. I would definitely use his service again.

EZ Junk Removal, responded so quickly to my request. They came and pick up my daughter’s broken bed in less than an hour and a half. They were so affordable, I jump on the price. Because everyone else was charging like hell. The owner was very nice and I will definitely use them again. And I will definitely refer them to my family and friends.

The contractor was supposed be at my house at 8. Didn’t show up on time and when contacted said he is not sure what time he can come. I kept asking for ETA but he wasn’t responding until I said I need to cancel the job and that’s when he said he was coming. I wouldn’t trust him with my next job if I needed to have junk removed on time.

I need more stars to let you know how happy I am with Nick's Junk removal. We had a dead tree cup up and no one to remove it....til I found Nick. He responded quickly to my inquiry, gave me a fair price and showed up the next day as scheduled to get it done! It was at a rental so I wasn't there, but received before and after pictures. Not a trace of the cuttings were left. Thank you for a job well done. Good to know there are people who do what they say they are going to do...and more....at a very fair price. My new go to haulers. 😊

Needed construction debris from a bathroom remodel hauled away. Received a quote from one company (my wife’s company uses them), but I thought it was way too high. Decided to get a second quote, so I contacted 98 Junk Removal for an appointment to see their price. Renford called me within 5 mins. to discuss what materials were in the debris, and to let me know when he would be by since he was doing another job in my city. He texted me when he was on his way, and showed up when he said he would. The price he quoted was half of the other company’s. I will be using him again in a few weeks when my other bathroom is being remodeled.

Although I was quoted $250-300 and I sent pictures, the vendor showed up asking for $500. He said the reason why was because I had a water heater (that he didn't take with him), copper pipes (that he left), "big rocks" (that he left), and he said the contractor "added" wood to the pile since he took the picture ALTHOUGH the contractor did not. If you want to have someone show up at your project and charge you double what was originally quoted, call SEUD Junk removal. I had to negotiate the price down and still ended up paying $350, and it took them 15 minutes to load up the wood we discussed earlier in the day. On top of that they lied on my review. See pictures attached to see the stuff they claimed raised the price, it's still on my property.

I hired Total Junks Removals LLc to perform a demo and haul-to-the dump job on November 7th, 2021. Understanding that reviews establish trust with prospect customers, I only grant 1/5 star reviews if a contractor: 1. Inflicts damages from/in relation to a criminal, or grossly negligent act. 2. Acknowledges the damages. 3. Fails to fairly compensate the victim. Employee "X" stole my Google Nest Thermostat ($240). I waited for his boss (Willie) and Employee "Y" to be distant enough to engage him without the need to expose or cause him unnecessary embarrassment. I cheekily asked if he had removed the thermostat cover to place it somewhere safe to prevent the falling debris from damaging it. He exclaimed with a friendly smile,"I got you buddy..." and nodded, "let me finish here first and I got you," as he removed the metallic ductwork. As they were getting ready to leave, Willie stayed to collect payment while the employees waited outside. I did not see the Google Nest Thermostat anywhere. I asked Willie for it, and he opened the front door to find employee Y standing nearby. Willie asked him as he came inside, but I already knew he wouldn't know. He seemed confused. I informed them I had requested the cover from Employee X; and even lied on his behalf (in case he had forgotten to return it) by stating he had removed it and placed it in a safe location so that the debris wouldn't fall on it. When Employee Y called Employee X inside, Willie asked him in Creole. At first he reacted as if he had not understood what I had asked him the first time; he proceeded to pretend not know what a Google Nest was; and then acted as if he did not know I was asking about the Thermostat cover itself. Employee's X histrionics were so suspicious that even Willie, his boss, seemed convinced he had stolen it. I remained calm and still acquiesced to pay the entire agreed-upon $1,000 to Willie; and he, in turn, with a disillusioned look on his face, apologized and credited $100. I am still $140 short; and the lackluster work performed by the thief will require additional capital to finish entirely. Despite stating he would email me an invoice when he arrived home, Willie did not; and proceeded to ignore my calls and texts reminding him to send one. I called Leonard two days later, who answered my call and asked for my email address. Based on Leonard's tone, which was very different from when I spoke to him before his employee had stolen from me, I assumed he wouldn't email me the invoice after we hung up. Having reminded them over several unanswered texts, sadly I was right.
