The biggest advantage of going with a professional Junk Removal and Dumpster Rental company is that you get to sit back relax knowing the job will be done right and professionally! The trick lies in not falling for those fly by night operators that feature cheap prices over the phone. They may sound good on the line, but the problems only start when you end the call. They may not show up, they may increase the price when they do come out. If you have ever moved, this type of tactic will sound familiar to you. Then it could even get worse, they may not be insured. They could damage yours, or your neighbors’ property. They could get injured and sue you. If everything goes fine at your site, your concerns are not over, when they leave. Then there is the matter of disposing of your waste, are they doing it properly, are they adhering to the dumping bylaws in your area or are they illegally dumping your waste and junk. If the guy with his pickup can’t be located YOU COULD BE HELD LIABLE. How do you avoid the trap? junk hauling
Tips for a happy haul away!
The company should answer the phone when you call. Your time is worth something and you want to avoid the phone tag game. Ensure that when you call the service provider that you get a professional sounding sales agent and if you are on hold listen to how professional the on-hold message is. The more professional these aspects are, the more likely that you are dealing with a reputable company.
A reputable junk removal company typically will provide free estimates. The price will be based on the amount of junk and type of materials to be removed. Furthermore, applicable fees should be included in the estimate, so there are no surprises down the line.
Don’t trust a quote from a junk hauler that does not offer to come out and give free on-site estimates. It is impossible for a junk removal service to provide you with an accurate price without seeing exactly what junk or waste items you have to be hauled away. In addition it is nice to get an on-site quote. This is also a way of judging the quality of customer service a company offers without paying a dime. This is your opportunity to observe the volume of the truck. Size does matter!
For example you may get an estimate over the phone 150 dollars for a truck load of junk to be hauled away from a guy with a pick up. Now that may sound reasonable. But a professional hauler may come out with a truck that can hold 8 times the amount of trash. The price maybe the same as the pick up driver or a lot less given their higher volume efficiencies. So if you have more to haul, simple math shows who you will likely keep more cash in your pocket.
Ability to Take Junk Away on the Spot.
After providing you with an on-site quote, a junk service should be able to take your junk away on the spot and from anywhere on your property or home. A good junk removal company will schedule their jobs so they can take your unwanted goods immediately after providing an estimate, rather than on a separate occasion. Providing you the convenience of having the job done on the spot.
Licensed and Insured
For your protection and safety, find a junk removal company with trucks and employees that are licensed and insured. Confirm that the hauler is licensed and insured. The hauler should be fully covered by workman’s compensation, general liability, and auto insurance.
References, Prominent Advertising, and a Traceable Address
Unfortunately, there are several unlicensed, unscrupulous junk removal companies out there that dump items illegally. Make sure to find a junk removal company that has a traceable address and prominent advertising to avoid problems.
Don’t choose a junk removal company just because they offer cheap prices. You get what you pay for in most cases, so if a price sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.
Experienced companies who have demonstrated service excellence at junk removal and dumpster rentals.
Not all junk removal companies have the necessary experience to manage your junk removal and dumpster rental requirements. Find a company that has history and who provide both junk removal and dumpster rental services. Companies that perform both services typically have significant knowledge and are the best to help you with your waste and rubbish removal requirements.
Companies that tend to do well are companies that don’t let you lift a finger when they arrive to complete the junk removal service, and the same companies that also promote dumpster rentals made easy!
Anyone can own a truck and haul junk, but the professional will save you many headaches, hassle and money. Don’t let hard earned money go to waste!
