Marpole is a vibrant neighborhood, and that means that people are moving in and out all the time. This process generates unwanted household items, that the city of Vancouver will not pick up. Instead Junk removal companies have taken the lead to provide such services. This article will attempt to clarify, what these hauling service are, and how can people get the best of them, and at the same time do so in the most affordable way.
What is junk removal service about?
No matter how environmental we try to be, there are still scenarios when we just end up with household items, or simply rubbish, that needs to be taken to the city landfill. Since the city would not pick up large items, or large volume of garbage, people need to hire rubbish removal companies operating in Marpole. A truck with few guys is sent to a client’s property, and pretty much anything can be hauled away to the dump. Naturally, there is more to that service, and the details will be examined further down.
Cost of junk removal?
If you have only one furniture item, such as a couch, then disposal rates are pretty simple to explain. Having one of those companies haul away your couch would cost you close to $90. If you have 2 couches, then the price will be in the range of $120-$140. If you keep on adding more items, then service cost is calculated by cubic yards, which is in the range of $40/cubic yard. To give you an idea, of how much junk you may have, think of 3-4 cubic yards are the equivalent of a pick up truck box.
Most companies, would need you to have minimum of few cubic yards of rubbish, as a minimum charge. Therefore, if you have just couple of bags of garbage, they can’t really charge you just $40. There are minimum expenses associated with labour, fuel, dumping fees, and truck maintenance, which are expressed in the policy of minimum charges. Therefore, it is a good idea, for clients to gather enough items, before they call a waste management company.
How to save money on junk removal?
Get everything to the curb, or any other place, where the truck can be parked close to your rubbish. This is not to say, that the service cannot include, guys taking things out of your house, but if you want to save money, this is a good way to do it. For 10 cubic yards of rubbish, you will get about an hour of free labour. After that time, there is a labour cost of $50 per hour. This has to be part of the policy, because some jobs can take as long as 5-6 hours, just for 10 cubic yards of rubbish. By having this policy, clients have the flexibility to decide, if they want to do some of the work, and pay significantly less.
Remove any obstacles that might be in the way. We had cases, when we had to pretty much rearrange few rooms furniture, before we could get just to one couch. We would end up being there for over an hour,and we can’t really just charge $90, for spending so much time and energy for one couch.
With this, we will finish this little guide on the specifics of junk removal services in Marpole. If you have any questions, regarding this service, you can always contact us, and we will be glad to provide you with any information you might need.
