Bursting The Bubble About Junk Removal

Junk Removal Myths

When it comes to using a junk removal service, there’s a lot of misinformation out there. Some might think there are unfair pricing schemes and practices from fly-by-night companies. However, if you choose a reputable company, there are many reasons to choose 24hr Junk to lessen your load.

Here’s a list of the most common junk removal myths, and what you can really expect when you partner with an expert.

Myth: Junk Companies don’t recycle. They just dump it all in a landfill.

Fact: While some items cannot be re-used or donated, established junk removal services will have knowledge of the right waste station to bring items to. In fact, in some cases more than 60 percent of everything collected will be recycled. Many junk removal companies do not collect hazardous waste. Instead, they let accredited facilities handle those properly.

Myth: Junk services are not trained to be careful.

Fact: Quite the opposite. Crews of an experienced junk removal service are trained to remove even heavy objects without causing damage to the premises. In an unlikely mishap, the crews will be insured against general liability.

Myth: Junk companies overcharge or add hidden costs.

Fact: Any trustworthy junk removal service will be up front about how they charge. By volume is the most ideal as opposed to by truckload, as truck size can vary. If there are potential extra charges, the company will let you know in advance what qualifies (for example, if you’re disposing of very heavy items.)

Myth: Handling junk removal myself is cheaper than hiring a junk removal service near me.

Fact: If you have a sufficient amount of junk to get rid of, think again before deciding to tackle it yourself. You’ll have to figure out the cost of a rental truck if you don’t have one already, as well as the actual cost of disposing items at the dump. That’s not to mention all the time and effort getting the items into the truck to begin with.

Myth: Junk services are not Covid-19 friendly.

Fact: Any Vancouver junk removal services that have a good track record will take the proper precautions as required. That could mean wearing masks or encouraging social distancing.

In fact, you can even save 10% off pickup of outside items. Learn more about the facts of how 24hr Junk operates by calling (604)330-6915.
