I asked for a "junk removal specialist" and Stephen was my first choice from 5 bids. I suspect that he would be a good choice for all kinds of projects!
He asked good questions about the job and we corresponded back and forth. He priced the job thoughtfully.
He and his assistant arrived exactly on time. It was a rainy day and they had brought paper shoe covers so as not to track rain or dirt into the house. The job was done quickly and with a friendly manner. Although it wasn't on the original request I asked him to move a reclining chair from my study to the den.
He did this willingly.
At the end, the pick up truck was only partially filled with my loveseat, freezer, and half filled "green bag". Just as I was deciding to pay him a little extra, he offered to reduce the price because the truck wasn't full! I did pay him a little extra because I was so pleased with the work and the experience. I took his card so I can call him again. A++++.
