Scrap-It Junk Removal was great to work with. They were friendly, responsive, and professional, and so speedy! I had 1/4 truck load of furniture, clothes, books, and assorted junk, and they moved everything out of my apartment in ten minutes with no disruption to neighbors. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for junk removal services in NYC.

Details: No large items to haul • Mixed trash • Enough to fill one pickup truck • Elevator available

This is my second time hiring Scrap-It for junk removal. As with the first time, great communication, fast and efficient work! Cynthia and her team were friendly, and respectful of our space. This company being Black-owed and women-owned is a welcomed bonus!

Details: Large items to haul • Furniture, appliances or electronics • Enough to fill half of a pickup truck • There are no flights of stairs

I couldn't be happier with Scrap-It! and the furniture removal they provided for my Long Island apartment. Cynthia and Jose were super-communicative and responsive at all times. They did the job expeditiously with minimum noise or disruption to my neighbors. I can sincerely say they are consummate professionals and I highly recommend them to anyone needing furniture or junk removal services.

Details: Large items to haul • Furniture, appliances or electronics • Enough to fill one pickup truck • Two flights

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We price based on several factors such as volume, weight, labor and duration. Our volume rate is based off the amount of space taken up in the truck. To give you a clearer picture: Min. Pickup - $175 1/4 truck load - $300 1/2 truck load - $600 3/4 truck load - $900 Full truck load - $1200 Our weight rate is for items that are heavier and condensed such as construction debris. We load the truck to a capacity of about 3000 lbs and we consider this a 'bedload' which is about 2ft high and the entire length of the cargo box(14ft). Some pricing variables: If COI is required for building Stairs or Elevator Are items already packed, bagged, boxed? Material Type: Concrete, Metal, Plastic, Sheetrock, Wood, Brick, Glass, Dirt We will not pick up Biohazardous waste, Full Paint Cans (But will pick up empty), All Propane tanks Do you do moves? We typically do cleanouts, but depending on your job we can see if we can accommodate this request. We do not do Packing & Unpacking services Do you take boilers? Boilers will be picked up if they are empty and cut open. Extra Surcharge for empty but needs to be cut open BBQs? Yes but no propane tank Do you take Cash?
