There are a hundred and one junk removal companies out there. Some are fantastic. Some are not so great. As a homeowner, it can be hard to find a junk removal company that you can trust to get rid of your stuff responsibly and for a fair price. There are certain things to look out for and questions you can ask, however, to make the job a little easier.
Here’s how to find the right junk removal company for you.
Can the company handle your junk?
The first thing to be aware of is that junk removal companies don’t remove all types of junk. It’s a lot easier to get rid of garden waste and a few trash bags than it is to get rid of kitchen appliances. Getting rid of chemicals and toxic waste is even harder. That’s why most junk removal companies won’t touch hazardous materials. Some won’t even remove fridges and washing machines. If you’ve got big, bulky or dangerous things to get rid of look for a specialist company first.
Does the junk removal company recycle?
Hiring a junk removal company that offers an environmentally friendly junk removal service is key. A significant proportion of all junk can actually be recycled and many companies will spend time sifting through everything to separate what can and can’t be recycled so you don’t have to. Even if you don’t believe in recycling, you probably believe in giving stuff to the less fortunate. Where companies offer recycling services, they should also donate appropriate items to charities, too. Doing your part for the environment doesn’t take much except for finding an environmentally friendly junk removal company.
What is their customer service like?
You want to use a junk removal company that is pleasant to get along with, right?
Then make sure you choose one with excellent customer service. This can be a bit tricky to do, however, as most companies will treat potential clients well. That can all change once they’ve paid, however. That’s why it’s important to check online reviews to find the companies that people are raving about. Getting recommendations from your friends can also be useful.
How much are they charging?
When you first start looking for junk removal companies, it is best to get several quotes. That way you have several prices to compare and you can get an idea of what the price should roughly be. Like with everything, you get what you pay for. Choosing the cheapest option might save you a couple of bucks now, but they might do such a bad job that you need to hire another company straightaway. At the same time, you don’t want to pay through the nose, either. Your best bet is to find a company that offers a fair price in exchange for a great value. In other words, consider all of the things mentioned so far and don’t be swayed by price alone.
