Junk King Franchise Partner Hauls in Some Goodwill for the Community During COVID-19

Posted by Junk King on Apr 28, 2020 1:25:40 PM

As America’s greenest junk removal service, we strive to do as much as we can to better the world we live in. Our commitment to recycling contributes to a healthy local ecosystem in the communities we serve, and it empowers our franchise partners to develop meaningful partnerships and giveback initiatives with local organizations.

Of course, these giveback initiatives extend beyond junk removal. Take Tom McCabe, for example. A multi-unit Junk King franchise partner in Connecticut and New York, McCabe recently connected with his local food bank to collect and deliver groceries to elderly citizens stuck at home during the COVID-19 pandemic. He offered up his vehicles and employees to help make the drop-offs.

“If you’re an empathetic person, you’re going to want to help [seniors] in any way you can,” says McCabe. “Those are the people who have paved the way for everybody who have come after them.”

McCabe’s employees “ran” with the idea and began coordinating their junk removal pick-ups with food bank donation drop-offs in the same area. “Without a doubt, this is going to become a piece of the fabric of our culture,” McCabe adds. “We’re not just going to stop this once we get back to ‘normal.’ These connections made now will be able to point me in the right direction moving forward.”

During this time, Junk King locations remain open and continue to service the community with special attention to social distancing. Junk King franchise partner Ryan Melconian recently spoke to the Houston Chronicle about the safety measures we’re taking, highlighting our contactless junk removal. We’re providing a completely touchless process that includes virtual estimates through photos and no-contact pickup, either curbside or from the porch, driveway or a designated area in the garage.

With many of our customers under stay-at-home orders, there’s been an increasing demand for junk removal services. From helping customers with spring cleaning and clearing out space for home offices and at-home learning, to special grocery drop-offs, our franchise network and teams are dedicated to ensuring a seamless and safe experience – each and every haul.
