Removing Unwanted Junk
What will junk removal companies take?
Typically, junk removal companies accept more items than dumpster rental companies, making them a more convenient option for various projects. A junk removal service may be more willing to remove some of the items that you can't put in a dumpster, like refrigerators, AC units, tires, or cans of old paint.
Other common items that junk removal companies accept include:
- Box springs and mattresses
- Car parts
- Hot tubs
- Propane tanks
- Yard waste
How much does it cost to hire a junk removal company?
Most junk removal companies charge a base rate regardless of how small the removal job is. For example, many will charge around $75 - $125 to come out and haul away anything. For large projects, like whole-home cleanouts or hoarding situations, you could end up paying as much as $2,000 or more.
