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.

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.

They were very responsive when I requested a quote - answered almost immediately. I had just a small load to haul away, but the price they gave me was very reasonable. They were on time and hauled it away quickly.

They came with a tiny pickup truck and put everything in it and hauled it up to the apartment trash container in the complex. I could have done this. This is actually against apartment regulations to throw stuff like mattresses, furniture, and other large things around the container. They were supposed to be hauling the junk off.

I had hired Nick to haul away some odds and ends from our old house. He responded to my inquiry immediately, gave me a fair price over email, and arrived exactly at the time he promised. He finished the work quickly and actually charged me $5 less than the initial quote. I am so impressed by his professionalism that I will be hiring Nick at our new house to haul away materials. Thanks Nick!

I would highly recommend Junkpro. They were super fast in responding to my request and hauled away my items for the day/time I needed. The crew came on time and I will definitely use them again in the future.

Donald had the first bid, responding in two minutes. He also gave a quote from the description, instead of waanting too see it first. He came to do the job in less than an hour and volunteered to haul more items at no extra charge. Top-notch.

Had a great experience with Nick of Clearview Hauling! I had 2 large , heavy pieces of furniture to remove - and Nick and his assistant were punctual, kept me informed as to when they would be arriving - and took care to not hit any walls while removing the furniture. I will definitely use them again! Thank you

I've used this company three times now for jobs and I can't recommend them more! Extremely personable, efficient and reasonably priced. This time they removed one old couch from the house and relocated another to an upstairs room. They were great to work with as always. I will definitely be contacting them if I need another hauling job done.

I hauled a Queen mattress, box spring and 2 metal frames to the curb Sunday night thinking that TOC would pick up (I made a reservation for furniture removal) TOC called me at 450 pm MONDAY saying they don't pick up mattresses.. I panicked and found Nick. He was super helpful and removed all my stuff by 9 am. He quoted me between 10-12. I'm super happy and relieved. I'll use him again!
