You are probably aware of the bad reputation the junk removal companies have in Vancouver. Why is this industry having so many bad apples? In this article I will try to answer this question.
Cheap junk removal services
This is one of the main reason, or way of luring unsuspecting customers. This is how it happens. A person who needs rubbish removal services visits few websites, and naturally hires the company that has the lowest rates.
Lets say that the client has been given a quote of $200, for the disposal of a large pickup truck load. After everything is loaded, he is then told that the $200 did not include the disposal fees and labour cost. Suddenly, the total cost jumps to $500. The client is upset and refuses to pay. This is when things get nasty.
The junk removal guys start to get verbally aggressive and acting in a way that the client just wants them out of his property. Most people are not confrontational and they will pay for these guys to just leave.
However, some clients, refuse , as they should, but this puts them in a difficult position. The disposal guys inform the client that they will drop all the rubbish on the driveway so he can’t even get his car out. They could also drop it at the curb and then they will call the city. The city can issue a ticked for the client.
There is also another disadvantage that the client might find himself in. He probably took the day off, and now he was to do the whole process all over again, without having any assurances that the next guys he hires, won’t do the same.
As you can see, this paints a much clear picture of why some waste management services are so bad. You get what you pay for.
The other reason for such bad services is associated with the kind of people that go into the disposal business. Unfortunately this industry attracts the kinds of people, who don’t understand that the job involves getting into peoples’ houses. This means that they have to be polite and presentable. Getting guys who are sensible to this fact is not an easy tasks.
