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.

James and his crew did a great job removing our junk plus they moved a couch and fountain that were too heavy for my husband and I to move. Very respectful of our property they came on a Sunday morning. Good communication and follow up. We definitely would recommend The Junk Wranglers.

Dehaze Junk Removal responded to my inquiry quickly, scheduled a time to come view, and even hauled away my junk all within a few hours! He arrived on time and quoted me a fair price after explaining things first. I will definitely keep his number handy for the future!

I have nothing negative to say about this company! They were punctual, friendly, professional, and most importantly were very careful while removing items. They were able to accommodate me the same day I requested help. I highly recommend this company for any kind of "junk" removal.

I chose First Faith Junk Removal because with a name such as the name they chose, I thought I would get a quote and most importantly integrity. Never heard from them again after the initial introduction.

I am a writer and publisher and I hired Junk King to help us clean out a large storage facility full of out of date books. Junk King communicated well before the scheduled meeting time, showed up early with 4 guys who worked their tales off and knocked the job out in a little over an hour. They were all courtesy, polite and diligent. I could not have been more pleased. I highly recommend Junk King for any job where you need quick, efficient help removing debris or anything that needs to be discarded.

I gladly offer a 5 star review for Tanner and Ruby’s Junk and Waste removal. Great communication from the beginning, showed up as agreed and did a great job (even in the rain). You cannot go wrong with Tanner! We will use him again and recommend to our neighbors. PS. I believe “Ruby” refers to his cherry red truck! Thanks Tanner!

Watkins Junk Removal Services were very professional. They responded to my inquiry with urgency and gave a good quote after pictures were sent. They gave me a time of arrival when they were headed to my home, and they were here on time. It only took a few minutes for my items, but I was very thankful. They made sure not to scratch any walls or doors. I am very satisfied, and will use their services again in the future.

Huge thanks to Donald for going above and beyond to make sure I was completely taken care of. Not only was he extremely responsive, prompt, and efficient but graciously and without hesitation helped me with several last minute items that I forgot to mention when negotiating our deal. He literally took everything and the kitchen sink :-) This is a true professional in every sense of the word. I have no doubt that, like me, anyone with the wisdom to hire Donald will be thrilled with their decision. Do yourself a favor, go with Donald and DH Junk Removal. The entire experience was so awesome that starting tonight, I'm finally ending the procrastination about clearing out all that other junk cluttering my closets, attic, garage and back patio. Donald, get ready because you'll be hearing from me very soon! Thanks again! - Brent from Alpharetta
