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.

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.

William was so helpful - not only did he remove our junk, he assisted with moving items inside the home and asked if we had more junk removal. He was so willing to assist in anyway we needed. And, his prices were affordable.

I would highly recommend DH Junk Removal! He is extremely professional, showed up on time and he turned my porch from a mini dump to an actual front porch I can use now. If that isn't enough to make you choose DH Junk Removal, then the fact that he has the most affordable rates definitely should seal the deal!

OJ junk removal was very great to work with! Very communicative, on time, and took great direction on the big pile of junk that I had - there were items mixed in that I needed to keep and they were attentive and followed instructions with no supervision. The price was very reasonable and they were able to efficiently knock out the work in under one hour!

Excellent communication throughout. Clear estimate. We had movers and contractors at the house at the same time. The crew from 1-800-Junk Removal worked around them and got the job done quickly. Highly recommend!!

This crew popped in like superheroes and removed all crap I didn’t want. No questions asked. Did it at the agreed upon time, for the money agreed and had it done before I got there. Got junk? Get these guys.

Mike, with Junk it Now, was very polite and professional. He had to contend with Friday 5:00 pm traffic but kept me informed with updates to his estimated arrival time. Once they arrived they quickly collected everything - very efficiently. I highly recommend them to anyone who needs old items or junk removed. I plan to use them again soon. Thanks Mike for being so easy to work with.

In addition to doing a thorough and efficient job of removing the refuse we needed hauled, Junk King followed a practice that most tradespeople seem to have abandoned, they communicate effectively and in a timely manner. The process of setting up our appointment and receiving confirmation gave us confidence that their work would be as effective as it was.

I contacted 5 Star Junk Removal the day before to haul away some furniture and other items our office was getting rid of. On top of having openings for the next day, they showed up on time and had everything on the truck within 10 minutes! Would definitely use them again.

IG Junk, is by far one of the better companies, I have hired. They came same-day, gave a fair estimate and gave me a military discount for my service. They were extremely quick in removing all my stuff. I blundered and forgot an item and IG returned to pick it up, no additional cost. Great company, I would hire them again.

We used Up & Out for our recent move. Jeremy was amazing from start to finish. He communicated clearly with us about our needs and was very up front and accurate with his pricing. We even had to add a lot more stuff than we initially thought and the price was still very reasonable. He was prompt, courteous, and thorough. I really like the fact that he donates as much as he possibly can, reducing the amount of waste that enters the landfills. Jeremy swept our garage clean afterwards and did a wonderful job all around. I highly recommend Up & Out Junk Removal!
