How To Hire Responsible Junk Haulers

It’s time to move! In with the new and out with the old!

So that means you have a few things lying around that you aren’t taking to the new house.  Things like old cans of half used paint, an old appliance, or even just a big pile of wood sitting on the side of your house can be a headache.  Never fear, there are easy solutions to keep it smooth sailing!

When looking for a good junk hauler there are a few things you need to know.  There are also a few things they will need to know.  Here are a few tips to make your life a little bit easier.

First, identify any items that would be considered hazardous waste.  Paints, oils, and chemicals are a few things generally considered hazardous waste that are found around the house.  Your junk hauler will want to know if you have items like these.  Your junk hauler should be able to advise you about how to dispose of these materials properly if they are not licensed to do so themselves.  Make sure they know about it so they can help you find a solution if they can’t help.

Next, it is important to give your junk hauler an idea of what items and how much of it you need removed.  Pictures are a great way to do this.  Most junk haulers price their jobs based on the volume of material they remove.  Making sure they know what and how much they are removing will let them give you a quick and accurate quote.  It will also let them plan in advance on how to recycle, refurbish, or properly dispose of your items in as eco-friendly a way as is possible. 

Last, make sure your junk hauler is disposing of your junk properly by asking a few questions about what they will do with your junk.  They shouldn’t have any issues answering for you.  If they are proud of their work and doing things the right way they will be happy to share.
