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.

Junk King was an outstanding experience. Within 15 minutes of requesting more information, they were on the way to my house for a free quote. When they arrived, they took care of the junk without any hassle and in an extremely timely manner. I will recommend them to everyone I know for removal services and you should too.

Doug responded super quickly and worked out a convenient time to pick up my couch, same day. He arrived and loaded the couch. Doug was a great guy and was super friendly. His pricing is very fair when compared to the corporate junk removers. I would highly recommend hiring Doug for your removal jobs.

I hired Go2 logistics Junk Removal for a big job. They were on time, polite, and super fast/hard working. They filled up their truck, and I had even more junk than I expected. No problem, we readjusted the quote and they came back first thing the next morning and took another whole load. It impressed me that they were able to easily arrange another pickup, and Tony and Gerald were so kind. I’d recommend them 100%!

The guys cleared out a disgusting storage shed of ours. The price was adjusted based on the amount of items to remove but I imagine that is what any of the companies may have done. I think giving a blanket quote via email is unrealistic. The price was still doable for the amount of junk and hazardous material that needed to be removed. In addition they stumbled upon a dead possum in an area we never went into. They even took care of that for me which was certainly above and beyond!! Would definitely hire again.

Received a response after posting on thumbtack with in 3 minutes. I called soon after around 9pm expected to leave a voicemail. Surprisingly I got a response and set up an appointment for the junk removal at my rental property the following day. They were there on time and finished the job quick. I really appreciated their service because I do not live in the same city that I needed the job done. Due to my work schedule, I cannot come to Tampa often, therefore, they made my trip to Tampa very productive and stress free. Thanks Junk King.

I emailed Junk King and they responded promptly. They were able to come the very next day and called before they came. I needed furniture removal and unfortunately, 20 minutes before they arrived. I called as soon as I found out and they showed up 2 minutes later. I gave them $20 for their troubles. They were very understanding and professional. I will definitely use them in the future and recommend them highly! Their prices were the most reasonable too!

Landscape rock removal, my personal nightmare. Been there, done that, needed someone else to do it this time. I found DUMP SQUAD USA on Thumbtack. They came over 15 minutes after I spoke with Trish, gave the estimate, and started working as soon as I said yes. From Trish in the office to Rich and his crew, Dump Squad has been outstanding, efficient, tidy, prompt, friendly, and honest. The "after" photos were taken less than an hour after the fence removal guys cleared out this morning. And the price was ridiculously fair! They've gone well beyond what I expected from them, and would use them again!! Call them if you need junk, yard waste, construction debris, an old deck, an old car, or anything else you need gone taken out of your life fast! DUMP SQUAD!!!
