Removing a combination of furniture junk in some yard junk really went smoothly largely due to the moving team and their can do and professional business-like attitude. They gave me a quote before they started work explain the particulars of the quote and it was a fair quote and they were real Straight Shooters and did a really great job of moving efficiently and cheerfully and I'm really happy to recommend them!

The guys were professional and very polite. They efficiently took care of my stuff and was able to get it all done within a very reasonable amount of time. I have used Got Junk several times and will continue. The only issue I had was I only had $22 dollars in wallet to tip. They should have a percent tip on service as option. people dont carry cash anymore.

We needed to empty out our mothers apartment in an assisted living facility after her death. My brother had previously used 1800JUNK when our mother had moved from her condo to the facility several years earlier and suggested we call them again. I needed to change the date and time several times, but had no problem. The two men who came were timely, professional, friendly, and finished the job in exactly the length of time they had predicted. I would definitely call 1800JUNK again if I needed prompt removal of a variety of items.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Since we price based on how much space your junk takes up in our truck, it’s much easier to provide an estimate in person. Our crew will arrive onsite to take a look at your junk and provide an exact price.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Customers can book an appointment with us either online or by calling us at 1-800-GOT-JUNK. We'll come to your location at the appointment time and take a look at what you want to get rid of. Then we’ll give you a price estimate and let you choose to proceed. Once you’ve agreed to the price, we’ll get to work! We do all the heavy lifting—you won’t have to lift a finger. We’ll even sweep up after we’re done!

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    1-800-GOT-JUNK? began in 1989, when college student Brian Scudamore encountered a tight summer job market in his hometown of Vancouver, Canada. After seeing an old, junk-hauling truck rumbling along a McDonald’s drive-thru, he was inspired to start his own business. What began as a means to pay for college quickly turned into a unique business - a franchise of professional junk removal. Brian eventually changed the company name to 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, invested in more trucks, hired great people, and set a goal to build a brand that would become a household name. Since 1998, the company has grown to approximately 200 locations across three countries.
