It’s Not All Junk!

The crazy things we find

People often ask us, do you come across any “good” items? The question is vague but the answer is always the same. I’ve been in this business for nearly 5 years now and I am still constantly amazed by the volume of good, interesting, or bizarre things we’re asked to haul away!

As each new employee comes in, we have to set their expectations early, so that they don’t get too excited on their first day. Some days are filled with blood, sweat and filth, while others seem to bear valuables at every turn.

Valuable junk

I’ve seen collections that are so impressive and unique that I have trouble describing them. Like the time we carted away thousands (that’s right, thousands) of unopened, modern, DVD’s. Or the client who had over 500 bottles of aged wine. We once removed a comic book collection so thorough that the boxes occupied ½ of our truck bed.

I’ve seen shoe collections, sports memorabilia collections, doll collections, magazine collections and TV collections. We’ve hauled signed baseball cards, hockey sticks, albums and books. We once hauled 9 motorcycles from the inside of a split level home that didn’t even have a garage. How they got the shoe-collectionmotorcycles in the home remains one of life’s biggest mysteries! How we were able to remove them remains one of life’s biggest accomplishments! One of my favorites was the weathered, scratched and heavily dented 4′ long Luis Vuitton chest that we almost threw away. None of our charity partners were interested in it, so we gave it away to somebody who ended up selling it for $4,000.
