Our Junk Removal Trucks: Is bigger actually better?

If you live in the DC Metro area, you’ve probably seen our big red trucks with the white 123JUNK logo written across the side of them. They’re hard to miss. Our trucks are some of the largest and best in the industry, and with that, they are also some of the more costly trucks to purchase and maintain. Why did we go that big on our trucks? Is a bigger truck necessarily better? What does that mean in terms of the price you pay for our services?

In junk removal, the bigger the truck, the more cost effective it is to schedule a pickup. For us and for any other junk removal service in the DMV, it costs money just to send the crew out to a property, even before the job begins. There are costs for fuel, labor, and disposal fees, plus all the soft costs like insurance, office payroll and marketing. This is why companies have minimums. 

If we can put more into the bed of our truck before unloading doantions, recycling and then disposing of the trash, its easier for us to justify our costs, and we end up charging less per cubic foot for the overall pickup. That means we can pass savings onto you, and who doesn’t like to save money!

With trucks that are 21 cubic yards, we have the largest standardized fleet in our market. Our trucks are over 30% larger than most of our national competitors. To learn more about our pricing visit our How we Price page.
