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.

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.

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.  

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.

Came across a few snags regarding the quote. There was a misunderstanding regarding the picture that was sent and the description of what needed to be hauled. Overall, Luke and his team were able to work with us on the price and they did a good job hauling out the stuff that we needed out of our storage unit. Will recommend them. Thanks guys.

I needed furniture hauled away and relocated. Both were done quickly and professionally. I will recommend them to anyone looking to have this type of work done and they will also be the first I call for work done around our house. Great experience and thanks to Dave and his team!

I hired them for several visits while we clean out the condo of a deceased relative who was a hoarder. The men were friendly and efficient and they hauled away tons of stuff. We hired them for a return visit a week later and will probably need them several more times.

Fantastic! They showed up exactly when we had planned and were quickly able to remove all of the furniture I needed gone. Their quote was accurate and much lower than most of the competition, and the team was respectful of my apartment and time. I highly recommend this company if you're needing anything hauled or junk removed!

JB Construction did an excellent job with the debris removal from a garage fire we had. They were flexible with me on the time it actually ended up taking to remove the debris, and gave me a fair price. The yard was thoroughly cleaned and all of the debris was properly bagged and hauled away. I will definitely use them again!

Great experience! They came early on a Sunday which was great for my schedule. Fast work, professional nice guys. Great value, too! I will use them again. They hauled out 1 piece of furniture and a bunch of boxes and contractor debris. I wish I would have called sooner!! So happy to get this stuff outta here!
After having made the mistake of booking two amateurs who either no-showed or canceled on me, I reached out to In and Out Junk Removal for a next day appointment to haul several large items including metal storage cabinets, a refrigerator, patio door, and sand/tarp. They were very responsive, upfront with the quote, on time and fast. Highly recommend In and Out for any junk removal jobs.

Hired Luke to haul away a big, heavy, old style, 36" TV. His bid was very competitive, he did what he said he would do, came when he said he would, was very good on keeping me apprised of his arrival time and did not hit me with extra charges. And he swept up after he finished! He was barely out the door when I was recommending him to friends.

It was awesome and painfree working with Greg and his crew. Greg was quick to respond to my text and phone calls. They were able to deconstruct my oversized queen size sleeper sofa and haul it away, along with an oversized love seat sofa without a hitch. I had 3/4 of truck load of miscellaneous stuff removed ranging from furniture, box TV, toys, home repair items, to clothes hangers. It took them about two hours. If you want courteous and conscientious workers, MMG is for you. Great value!
