Even though you're just hiring someone to remove your trash, it’s important to learn a little bit about the company and their policies before you do business with them. Careful research will help you pick the right junk hauler for your personal needs. A few things you’ll need to research:
Most junk removal companies determine prices based on volume. Your junk hauler should be able to provide an accurate estimate of how much your junk removal should cost. Some companies may offer prices based on services offered. For example, if you are willing to load a dumpster yourself, the company may only charge you for bringing the dumpster to your location and removing it when you’re ready. Make sure to inquire about these types of services or flexible pricing structures.
Choose a company that pledges a good clean-up job, all the way down to a broom-swept floor. This is expected from most junk haulers and should come at no extra cost. Additionally, companies should supply all the tools necessary for removal.
Before considering hiring a junk hauler make sure the company you are communicating with is fully licensed and insured with workers compensation, general liability and auto insurance. While it may seem silly to insure your junk, it is important that your hauler is able to complete the job and you are not liable for any employee accidents that may occur on your property.
