What are Junk Removal Services?

Junk removal services offer an efficient and safe way to help you get rid of all that unwanted junk in your home or office. Whether you’re a homeowner, property manager, business owner, or head of an HOA, you can call on these professionals to declutter and clean up your space. Make a quick call, describe what you need to be hauled away, and they’ll provide a free quote. In many cases, your junk removal can be scheduled immediately and they’ll send an experienced team to safely and courteously haul away your unwanted items. 

What are Dumpster Rental Services?

Some junk removal teams will also offer services in dumpster rentals. With this service, they’ll drop off a dumpster for you. You can then take your time to fill the dumpster with whatever waste or junk you need to dispose of. This is ideal for larger projects (like remodels or construction projects) when you need to gradually dispose of yard waste or construction materials. Once the dumpster is filled, the company will then return and haul it away and safely dispose of the materials. 

What Will Junk Removal Services Haul Away?

In most cases, a professional junk removal team should have no problem hauling away any of your junk items or excess stuff. After all, that’s why they’re in business. But if you’ve never called on this service before, you may be unsure of what they will be able to haul away. 

Here are some of the most common items hauled away by professional junk removal teams:

  • Mattresses and box springs.
  • Furniture.
  • Exercise equipment.
  • Appliances.
  • Electronics.
  • Televisions and radios.
  • Bicycles.
  • Toys.
  • Musical instruments.
  • Clothing.
  • Yard waste.
  • Construction materials.
  • Tools.
  • Hot tubs and spas.
  • Boxes of miscellaneous items.

While junk removal services will haul away almost anything, this doesn’t mean they will take any of your items. Most junk removal companies will not take any toxic or hazardous materials. This may include oil, fuel, pesticides, paint, ammunition, fireworks, and certain household cleaners. They also generally will not take pharmaceuticals, pressurized containers, or medical waste. In some cases, if the item is too heavy to lift or if it’s placed in a dangerous location, they may be unable to haul it away. 

Of course, each junk removal service has its own standards and limits on what it will and will not take. If you’re unsure about whether or not your junk will be hauled away, simply call up your prospective junk removal team and ask. They’ll be more than happy to provide you with information, and if they can’t take your junk, they may be able to find someone who can.  

How to Find the Right Junk Removal Services in Colorado

If you’ve never called on professional junk removal services before, you’ll be surprised to find out that there are actually quite a few options out there. Especially if you live in an urban area in Colorado, such as Denver, Colorado Springs, or Fort Collins, you can choose from various junk removal teams. So, how do you know for sure that you’re selecting the right company for your junk removal needs?  

Here are some things to keep in mind:

1. How much do they cost?

Cost is always an important factor to keep in mind when choosing a junk removal service. Most companies will offer a free quote when you call and tell them what (and how much) you need to be hauled away. Most use a sliding scale that’s based on the size of your junk, the particular items (heavier ones may cost more), and the space it will occupy in one of their trucks or dumpsters. Always call and compare quotes before settling on one junk removal team. 

2. Will they take your junk?

This one may seem obvious, but as previously discussed, junk removal services won’t always take all your junk. You want to be sure that they’ll be able to take all the items you need to be removed. A quick phone call early in the process will help you determine whether or not they can actually haul your junk. 

3. How long have they been in business? 

You don’t want just anybody showing up at your home to haul away your excess items. Professional junk removal services are much more than just two guys and a truck. Professional junk removal teams have the proper experience, equipment, and customer service to ensure the job is done right. Check to see how long they’ve been in business to work with an experienced team.           

4. Do they have reviews or referrals?

Customer reviews offer valuable insight when looking for a junk removal company. They provide an outside (often objective) perspective as to what it’s like working with a  company. Most junk removal services will offer customer reviews on their website. Reviews may also be available on Google. Of course, one or two bad reviews shouldn’t deter you from working with a specific company. However, if there are more bad reviews than positive ones, this might be a red flag.
