Jude H. says, "If you do one thing, make sure you hire Uinta. You will absolutely not regret it. I would rate these guys more than 5 stars if I could. Daniel and Jordan were professional and efficient. We had a lot of heavy bulky items to move from our townhome to a single family home and both of them moved so quickly. I thought there were more movers because of how fast they were able to get things loaded into the truck and then unloaded. I was shocked to know that there were only 2. I found Uinta on Thumbtack and to be completely honest they were going to be my last choice. They didn’t have a lot of reviews compared with other companies. But, I decided to send them a message along with several other companies because our move was really last minute. The other companies quoted me an unreasonable amount of money and felt stale or hollow when speaking with them. Uinta replied to my message within about 5 minutes and answered promptly when I called. They were friendly, courteous, professional and upfront about cost. They were able to get us scheduled when we requested, and communicated throughout the whole process. I am so glad that I gave these guys a chance. I have moved a lot in my life and have hired many different companies to move. No one compares to Uinta. They handled our things with care, which is something that I couldn’t say for other companies I have hired previously."See more

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.

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.

Very quick to respond and gave me the best deal of anyone I contacted. He was able to schedule me quickly and left the area very clean after he took all the junk he was removing! I will use them again if needed!

They had the lowest price and they were very professional. They were also very flexible. I started with just some junk removal, but added some other things including moving furniture inside my house. They were very accommodating and very careful.

These guys did great work for a great price! They loaded up all of my junk pile in their trailer, then swept up all the debris and used a blower to clean my cement completely free of the mess that was once there! I’m so excited to have it gone. So glad they were so responsive to my request, came quickly, and did a better-than-expected job. I highly recommend this company to anyone needing junk removed!! ❤️

Our office was in need of many broken down cubicles to be removed. The men were absolutely amazing to work with. They did the project with positive attitudes and they were quick. I would definitely recommend and use Junk King Salt Lake again. Thank you for everything!!!
