Junk removal vs. dumpster rental: Which is more economical?

What’s the average cost of using a junk removal company?
Costs vary depending upon how much space your junk takes up in the back of the company’s truck and its weight. The complexity of the job may also factor into determining the quote. For example, having to haul heavy furniture up several flights of stairs in a tight stairwell would cost more compared to having a debris pile sitting in the driveway ready to be loaded up and hauled away.
Although it varies by location, most junk removal companies have a minimum fee they charge that ranges from $50 to $125. As the job becomes more labor intensive and the weight/volume of the debris increases, the rates also increase.
Large construction site debris cleanups may cost several thousand dollars. Smaller jobs, such as household junk pickups, may run $200 to $500. Check with your local junk company to get a more accurate rate. Quotes are free here at Hometown.
