1 800 Got Junk

1 800 GOT JUNK Visit Site


More than 40 states Best-In-Class Blue Ribbon Award In business since 1989, 1 800 Got Junk currently has earned a Better Business Bureau rating of A+. The company operates in over 40 states across the entire country.

If you're worried whether they'll take your junk, you shouldn't be. 1 800 Got Junk will remove unwanted items from both homes and businesses. They take away your unwanted appliances, trash, carpet, construction materials, and much more. They also clean up the area once your junk has been removed.

The online order process is simple. You enter your zip code and choose an appointment range from a 2 hour window. This is much better than other junk removal companies, who require you to reserve a 4-hour block of time. Prior to arrival, 1 800 Got Junk will call 30 minutes before the start time of your appointment to make sure you're ready and give you an exact arrival time. Once they arrive, they'll review your project and give you an exact junk removal price. With your approval, they'll remove your junk immediately and finish by cleaning the area. If you don't like the price they quote you, they'll depart and you're assessed no charge.

1 800 Got Junk provides two fully insured movers that are licensed to remove junk in any location of your house or office including attics, basements and more. 1-800-Got-Junk is also a huge proponent of recycling. They send all reusable items to Goodwill, Habitat for Humanity, and other charities.

The going rate for junk removal varies based on your location and how much you fill the truck. The prices we were quoted in our area were as follows: $538 for an entire truckload of junk, $349 for half the truck, and all the way down to $98 for the minimum. The capacity of the truck was 400 cubic feet and measured 10 feet long, 8 feet wide, and 5 feet tall. You may also be able to save $10 online by scheduling an appointment within 24 hours.

In summary, 1 800 Got Junk is a professional junk removal service that you can rely on. Knowing that your unwanted items will be recycled to various charities and companies means you're not contributing to unnecessary landfill issues. We appreciated the customer friendly service we encountered at all levels at 1 800 Got Junk. If you want to remove junk from your home or business, 1 800 Got Junk should be your first stop.

Mister Trash



10 states

Mister Trash is franchise junk removal company that lacks a lot of friendly customer service and website polish. Mister Trash is not a wide spread national franchise as we would have expected. They are currently located in several cities within Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, DC, Florida, Illinois, and California.

You have to read the fine print, at Mister Trash, to find the locations they work in and the website erroneously accepts any zip code in error. We found out by calling the 1-800 number and being told "I ain't got no one there", that they could not assist in our area.

For the limited areas that Mister Trash is located they do provide a number of services such as junk removal, pressure cleaning, water removal and several other hazmat type services. Mister Trash promises assistance within 24 hours but does not offer convenient online scheduling and a high level of customer service.

To order service you must call the 1-800 number to schedule the appointment. The time frame is not a short window and talking to the company is not a stress free experience. The website also lacked the ability to estimate the cost of services.

Unfortunately we weren't able to get an estimate on prices for any areas - the person answering the phone said they would have to give the estimate in person but the estimates are free.

Overall, we couldn't find any reason to utilize Mister Trash until they expand their service area, improve their website and customer service.
