Junk Removal Pricing Wilkes-Barre

How much does it cost to hire a junk removal service?

If you find yourself in the middle of a house cleaning, renovation project, downsizing, etc. you may be interested in hiring a junk hauling company. Fortunately for the customer, there are many junk removal services to choose from. Every junk hauling company has different pricing, but we will discuss the most common junk removal pricing strategies in this post.

The Estimate

Nobody’s junk hauling job is the same

Just like you, your junk is unique. Most junk removal companies can give you an estimate over the phone from a description or picture. With that said, it is difficult to get an exact price without seeing the items in-person.

When setting up a free junk removal estimate, make sure your company is able to remove your junk on the spot if you agree to the price. Many small hauling companies give free estimates but need to come back to do the job. Legitimate junk removal services such as A+ Enterprises will send 2 uniformed employees and a large dump truck to every estimate if you choose to hire us for your project.

No junk removal companies will have identical prices on the same job. There are many reasons for this, but the most common are summed up below.

  • Overhead
  • Licensing/Insurance
  • Disposal Fees
  • Distance to customer
  • Perceived difficulty of job

Almost every junk removal service has a minimum service charge. They typically range between $75-$150 depending on the area. The reason for the minimum job cost is to cover transportation, fuel, and labor costs of arriving to your junk removal job. Did you know that most junk removal companies break-even on jobs under $250?

Cheap Junk Removal

As you can see for obvious reasons, uninsured illegal junk haulers will almost always have a lower price than legitimate junk removal services. With that said, going for the lowest price is not always the best decision. The reasons for this are endless, but the biggest risks of cheap junk removal companies are below.

  • Uninsured
  • Illegal dumping
  • Shady employees
  • Slow time to complete job

How Junk Removal Pricing Works

Unfortunately in the junk removal industry, there are companies that will use misleading pricing tactics to rip customers off. Below are some of the ways companies can leave customers with a hefty, unexpected bill for junk removal.

Junk Hauling Jobs by the Truckload

Many junk removal companies offer “estimates” based on how many truckloads they believe the job will require. Obviously a 15 cubic yard dump truck is larger than a 4 cubic yard pickup truck. Both of those descriptions are considered “truckloads”. It is important to ensure that you know how big the truckload is before you agree to a price.

99% of junk removal companies offer these types of truckload estimates. For example, let’s say you have a house that “Blue Junk Company” estimated will take 2 truckloads to empty out at $650/truckload. If they end up taking a third truckload, you are on the hook to pay the bill for the last truckload.

All-Inclusive Trash Removal Pricing

This pricing scheme is not as popular, but it is the most ethical way to price junk removal & cleanout projects. If you hire a company such as A+ Enterprises Junk Removal, you can be confident you are getting a 100% firm price.

On most jobs, we will evaluate the entire job and give you a firm price the job will cost regardless of time, truckloads, etc. This way, you can sit back and relax 100% worry free while we do all the loading & hauling for you.

Doing this type of pricing requires extensive experience & a diverse fleet of trucks to get jobs done efficiently. This is why most other junk removal companies go by the “truckload” rate.

      5 star review  Sal was great to work with. I was so stressed about a large deck in the back of my house that was collapsing. Sal came right over and gave me a very fair price and two days later the job was done. And a really good job. He even hauled away a piece of junk for me at the last minute. I highly recommend this company and plan to use them again as the need arises

      5 star review  Top notch. I called and spoke with a Guy named Sal. Very friendly and excellent Customer Service, 100%. I was set up in minutes. The pricing was great. Delivered it next day. When it was time for pick up I advised that I would be working and not able to hear the door so just knock hard. I went out on my Lunch break wondering what the heck? And the Dumpster was gone. Great service. Great Price. I called about 6 Dumpster Rental places and of all of them, A+ Was definitely the best and Props to Sal. Great Service. Truly is A+

      5 star review  Very promote service. They came exactly on time for the appointment and I did not have to left a finger. I lost the invoice for the services and received a quick response and delivery for that as well. If you looking for reasonable priced service with a smile A+ is the way to go. Also to add I have used multiple junk companies and they by far are the best.
