You're Not In The Junk Removal Business

Okay, so you have to get some junk removed and hauled away once in a while. But who says you have to do it yourself? 

Sometimes the junk and debris you collect or generate at your business is more than can be easily placed in your industrial dumpster out back. Sometimes it's more than will even fit in the dumpster! What do you do then?

There are certainly options for junk hauling and disposal. But the problem with too many business owners is the tendency to simply do it themselves. Actually, it usually means having some of the employees do it.

While it may seem to be the most economical and simplest approach, that's not usually the case.

 

New call-to-action

 

Yes, I Own a Truck, But...

Transportation is usually the first obstacle . You could ask your employees, but unless your employee is also a really good friend - or your brother-in-law - that's probably not a good option.

Although your business may own a number of assets, a pickup truck may not be one of them. And it is quite unlikely that your company owns a box truck or dump truck. So you find yourself having to rent a vehicle in order to haul your junk offsite. 

Expense number one.

Now that you've paid one of your workers to fetch a rental truck - and paid them for the time spent doing so instead of doing their real job - now you have to pay employees to load the truck with the junk, debris and whatever else you're hoping to get rid off. 

Expense number two.

By now, you're starting to see the pattern. Doing it "yourself" isn't so economical nor simple. It costs you both in time, rentals, gas, landfill fees and possibly more. And you're losing productivity somewhere in the process paying workers to be junk haulers.

How About a Guy With a Truck?

Another option is to simply hire a local person who has a truck and is willing to make a "dump run" for a fee. There are usually no shortage of well-meaning individuals who look to make some money periodically as freelance junk haulers. 

But is the vehicle large enough? Or will it take two, three or more trips to get the job done? How will you be charged: by the load or one flat fee? Do you have to cover fuel and dump fees? And so on and so on.

Oh, and then there's the question of safety. 

Does this person have a good reputation and referrals? What happens to you if something happens to them while dumping your junk? What happens if some of your junk is considered hazardous waste and you didn't know that? Who's liable then?

Too many questions, too many uncertainties and too many potential liabilities. 

While this might seem like a cost-effective option on the face of it, a deeper dive will reveal that it's best to skip the guy with a truck.

Professional Junk Hauling Needed: Who You Going To Call?

There is a third option.

When you have a professional junk hauling need the best course of action is to hire professional junk haulers. Sure, it will cost you. But, all things considered, by choosing the right professional junk hauling and disposal firm you'll save both time and money.

Also, there's no loss of productivity. And you don't have to pay for the gas nor any landfill fees. 

Professional junk removal typically takes one of two forms. There is full-service junk removal, where you hire a firm like Junk King, and a small team of people come to your workplace, carry your junk and debris outside, load it into a dumpster or truck, and then haul it away.

This option is very much like hiring movers, except that your stuff goes away forever instead of going to your new address.

And, while we know you're not in the junk removal business, it does makes sense sometimes to use a self-service junk removal option. With self-service junk removal, the junk company delivers a highly accessible dumpster to your property, and you or your staff fill it yourselves.

Then, once the rental dumpster bin is full, the junk removal team comes back to load your dumpster onto a truck and drive it away.

In short, junk removal is the go-to strategy for dealing with bulk debris and junk or large garbage items.
