Unfortunately, this industry has some bad vendors, and your first task is to determine is how to avoid those bad apples. Read on, and you will find out how.

Call them! This is the best way to ascertain the quality of their service. This is not to suggest that companies that provide bad junk disposal services in Kitsilano, are not smart enough to hire a sweet talker to pick up the phone. However, for some reason, I have noticed that most don’t actually do that. They are as rude on the phone, as they are with their services.

Junk removal rate for household rubbish In Kitsilano

Rates are all over the place, because some companies have the tendency to either charge too much or too little. The former does not need an elaboration of why you need to avoid them, but the latter is a bit more tricky, as to why you don’t want to hire them. Their disposal services are cheap, but you will feel pretty uneasy to have them on your property, if they can remember to show up for the appointment.

Now, lets get into some more specific numbers. Professional junk removal rates are around $200 for a pick up truck. Most of these vendors operate trucks that are 2-3 times bigger than a pickup truck. Therefore, rates are around $500 for a full load, $250 for a half-load, and the grading continues down in a similar fashion.

Single items carry disposal rates of around $90, and each additional item is rated at a 50% discount, in most cases. For example a couch removal cost in Kitsilano is $90. Disposal of a mattress is the same.

Booking an appointment

During the initial call, you will be asked few questions, in regards to your junk, and then you will be offered couple of time slots for pick up. Mind that, most companies operating in Kitsilano, are pretty busy, so they won’t be able to offer your a service for a day or two. In some summer months, it can get so busy ,that you may have to way for a week. Therefore, try to call them earlier. By the end of the call, you will have a date and a time, and you are set. It is that simple.
