I got several "guestimates" for removing boxes of trash. Mike's original price was $85. I said I had about 35 kitty litter boxes and three copy paper boxes on the second floor of my condo and some cardboard and empty boxes on my patio. I thought I had described the boxes and trash fairly well, but he asked me to send pictures of what I had. I had underestimated the number of litter boxes, so when he saw the pictures he said it would be $165. I asked him what it would be if the litter boxes were downstairs and he said $150. Frankly I thought the price was a little high, but we had established a rapport, and I liked that he was an ex-Marine. We set a date and he came to pick up everything. Even though I hadn't moved all the boxes downstairs, he still honored the $150. I did find out when he was at my home that they take the trash to a regular dump where they have to pay. That of course accounted for part of his price. His license doesn't allow him to dump into a dumpster like my complex has. Mike was extremely nice and efficient. He even swept my patio after he had moved the boxes. He stated several times that they work for tips. I didn't if he was the owner of the business or if he worked for someone else, which I probably should have, but I did give him a tip. I would definitely use him again. It was well worth the money I spent to have all that stuff out of my way!!
