How to hire a junk removal company in Vancouver?

20150129_112439After running a junk removal business for many years, I am noticing that most of the calls I get, sound like people are unsure how to approach our industry. It seems that there isn’t enough information in regards to some of the basics in the rubbish removal services. This article will help you understand what this service is about, and how to hire a hauling company.

What is junk removal?

Disposal companies specialize in hauling away large volumes of garbage and furniture items, that are not part of the City of Vancouver garbage collection services.

How much does junk removal cost?

Rates are a function of weight, volume and type of waste that you need to be disposed of. For general household garbage and furniture items, the rate is around $45/cubic yard. Single items, such as a couch, or a mattress, is in the range of $90 per item. If your items are heavy, or hard to load onto the truck, then the rates are a bit higher. For example, if you have your trash in a difficult to get basement, then the cost will be higher.

How to book an appointment?

The best way to do it, is to make a phone call to our company. After answering few questions, you will be given few options based on your and our schedule and the rest is easy. If you request it, we can also provide you with a rough estimation, based on your description of what you need us to haul away to the dump. Calls are never longer than 3-5 min. It is that easy to establish what you have and what we can do for you.

I can continue this article into more details, but the best way to determine each scenario is for the client to talk to one of our representatives. Every job is different, and therefore, each approach is unique. I hope this post will provide you with the basics, and it will make it easier for you to approach us, without feeling like you are asking silly questions.
