We all need some junk or clutter removed at one time or another. Overpaying for junk removal is common and we will list several ways to reduce the costs significantly.
Below are 5 things you can do to negotiate a better price. Remember there are lots of junk removal services, finding the one with the right price is the hardest part.
1. Have everything ready to go.
Don’t wait until the junk removal service has loaded the truck and then you pull out two large mirrors. Junk removal services will load some items before others for safety and efficiency, so it is best to let them see everything that’s going before they load the truck.
2. Gather the junk into an area where the junk removal service will have easy access.
Some junk removal companies are full service and will take your items from wherever they are, but you will pay full service price for this.
3. Sort the items so the pile is somewhat orderly.
This will make it easier for the junk removal company to load the truck the way it will be unloaded saving lots of time and we all know “Time is money”
4. Bag loose materials with heavy duty plastic bags.
If the material being hauled away is easier to load and requires less clean up time you should pay less.
5. Get a neighbor to go 50/50 for a load.
Most junk removal service offer deals for larger loads. By combining loads you and a neighbor may save some money.
