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.

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. 

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.

Thurston provided a great experience in junk removal after we had previously hired a company to do it and they never showed up. He was fast to contact us, gave an appropriate time range that he was available, showed up and removed an old piece of furniture in no time at all. Would recommend his services to anyone.

Ron removed some junk for me. He showed up 10 minutes early, which was great and he even made two trips because my load was a little larger than he expected. Would definitely use him again.

They were absolutely amazing to work with and exceeded our expectations! They were extremely professional and did exactly what they said they were going to do and even removed some extra pieces for us. They were on time and fast, cleared out 16 years of junk underneath our house which would have taken us days to do and it took them only hours. We will definitely hire them again as soon as we need removal services. Highly recommend them, also very nice!!

Donnie and his team were phenomenal! Great communication from the start, competitive quote,arrived early, and they were amazingly fast and efficient. The area they removed the "junk" from was absolutely spotless when they left. They performed over and above what I expected and I could not recommend them more highly. I will definitely call on Donnie again when the need arises.

Nick is a very nice guy and has a really professional set-up going with a pickup truck and trailer, his own handtruck, etc. Our appointment for the junk removal was of course on a day that it was pouring rain. Nick was on time, super friendly and polite and careful not to damage anything as he removed old furniture. Nick is retired Army Airborne and an Iraq War veteran formerly stationed at Fort Bragg! Support our veterans in their businesses, folks! Thank you Nick for your service. We will call you again when we are ready to tackle the basement!

Mike with Empire Complete Janitorial Services was nothing short of a blessing to my family. If you have ever moved you know the challenges and frustration it can bring. Mike remained very positive, professional and kept us on track the whole time. He is the total package from junk/trash removal, organizing, cleanup after moving, etc. Couldn’t imagine getting through this without him!

Showed up the same day, I was skeptical, as awful as this is to say, bc it was just one woman to remove a ton of junk, some of which was under an old deck and not easy to get out. Shame on me for that sexist attitude! Somehow in under an hour she had loaded it all into her trailer for the agreed upon price and was on her way. So friendly, so impressed, will definitely be sending them more business.

I had a large amount of junk that needed removing after a yard clean up. Buckhorn General Store was extremely responsive with my estimate request and kept in constant communication leading up to their arrival. Kenny did a fantastic job with the cleanup. Always kind and courteous and boy did he work hard getting all the debri loaded up and out of my yard. Very reasonable pricing, fantastic to work with. Will definitely use again when the time arises and will recommend.
