How Can I Save Time or Money on Junk Removal?

Usually we don’t get questions on how to save money on junk removal. First, 123JUNK provides really fair, all-inclusive pricing. Second, people generally just want their junk gone.

But there are people who are budget-conscious and would like to know how to save money wherever and whenever possible. We’re glad to help you save money whenever we can, and we want you to get the most for your money and your valuable time, so here are some tips on how you can save time or money on junk removal.’

1. Gather your items together

123JUNK can come in and remove items from anywhere in your home. But having your items organized into one area makes it easier for our crew.

2. Disassemble large items

Part of the time we take in hauling away large items like furniture is in disassembling it to fit into our big red dump trucks. Save time by disassembling large items prior to our visit.

3. Remove non-acceptable items

Check our blog post on “Hazardous Items” and our list of “what we don’t haul” and remove those items in advance from your junk pile

4. Get an estimate

Have 123JUNK come to your home to give you an in-person estimate on hauling away your junk. Don’t rely on online services who claim to give you a one-size-fits-all price. For an accurate estimate, be sure they lay eyes on the size of your job.

5. Create one pickup

Having 123JUNK pick up all your items at once saves money over having us make multiple trips over a period of time.

6. Recycle what you can

Find a local recycling center and take recyclables such as newspapers, bottles and cans, or electronics there yourself.

7. Contact a charity

Local charities sometimes have pick-up options where they can haul away furniture and household goods on your behalf. They usually require that you have the items at the curb or in the garage. Check with your favorite to see.

8. Share the expense

Get together with your neighbors or adjoining business to see if they have junk hauling needs as well. Then split the expense of having a 123JUNK truck make one pickup.

123JUNK Charges Only By Volume

Whereas other junk hauling companies may charge by volume, weight and accessibility, 123JUNK charges only by volume, not by how long a job takes or how much it weighs. The price is determined by how much space it will take up in our big red truck. You’ll be given one flat fee so there are no surprises.

At 123JUNK, we’re always glad to make our customers throughout Northern Virginia, Maryland and Washington D.C. happy. Even if that means saving them money on our services. Contact us today to schedule your pickup.
