What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
As with most fields, we gather the current information right from the field. However we do have employees who do research and look for ways to advance as a company and further build relationships with local companies who have similar interest in community development and environmental safety.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
We noticed how many good items were being filled into our landfills. Seeing some of these items, I realized "hey some people can use that", as you know, one man's trash is another man's treasure. Even sometimes it is their treasure and simply don't have room for it. With environmental conditions the way they are, we couldn't site back and watch. So we developed this company to pick up materials and try eagerly to build relationships with local non-profit organizations who take the higher end materials we pick up, and redistribute them to the community.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Mainly Junk Removal, hot tub removal and demolition, donation deliveries. Sometimes people will buy a large item from a store and they don't have the capability to get it home. We supply that service. We'll pick it up from the store and deliver it to your home.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
There was a lady who I wont mention names for anonymity, who had a hoarder problem. She had a very hard time letting go of anything and her living conditions were deplorable. Her family called us in and we cleared the house out and the woman finally let go and allowed this. She was nearly in tears the entire time. When the job was done, and the place was clean and neat, she looked around and smiled, and it seemed like she was ready to begin the rest of her life that way. Our whole company is very proud of that story.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Many other small companies out there lie about the sizes of their trucks. they claim to have larger trucks which always seem to "be in the shop".
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
That there are many large national chain junk removal services that will overcharge you. Now that you have found Git Rid of It, we can beat their prices and offer very high quality work.
