Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.  

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.

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.

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. 

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.

Find a junk removal service near you and start asking for free estimates.

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.

Mr. Rhoades quickly responded to the job posting. He communicated clearly via Thumbtack. He had availability within 3 days. He called the morning of the haul to let me know that he was running 10-15 minutes behind schedule. Mr. Rhoades picked up the construction debris completely. I recommend Rhoades Hauling.

Great experience! No Hassle Haul responded immediately to my request to have 2 old grills removed from my property. I knew it right away that this company won the bid. In addition to all of the raving reviews, No Hassle's respond to me spoke volumes--"I could pick them up tomorrow morning at 6am you don’t need to be present you can go about your day as usual once you get around to inspecting the work you can pay us". Needless to say, I could hear the truck arrive at 6AM sharp. Thank you No Hassle Haul! Looking forward to retaining your service in the future.

I hired Great Affordable Rates to haul a few junk items at my home. Great Affordable Rates lived up to their name Great Affordable Rates. They were super quick in responding. They came on time and they were super fast. If you are looking for someone reliable, fast, and affordable

I am so happy we chose Sankofa Hauling! They were able to provide services the same day, they were on time, professional, and kind. They had the best pricing on Thumbtack and I couldn’t be more satisfied with the work they did. We had several large items so I was glad they had a professional truck that was large enough for all of the items: King sized four poster bed, tall chest, mattress, 2 large night stands, a television, and a large jewelry box. My husband and I would like to thank you and your team for an excellent job. We will give you a call when we need hauling services in the future!

We needed two recliner chairs hauled away. I'm so glad that Anthony was available to handle this. In absolutely awful weather he did the job quickly for a very reasonable price. I will definitely contact him for further work we need done, as there are many types of jobs he is able to do. He has my highest recommendation!
