Factors affecting junk removal costs
There are a number of factors that can affect the cost of junk removal, like:
- Location of the job site as well as its proximity to the company and/or landfill/recycling center
- Size and complexity of the job, e.g. how accessible the junk is
- Type of waste, junk, or debris to be removed
The cost to haul junk varies by location. For example, customers in a large metropolitan area, like Los Angeles or New York City, can expect to pay more for junk removal than those in smaller cities.
The amount of junk that needs to be removed is a big factor, too. For example, big cleanups will require a larger loading capacity truck or container, as well as more labor hours to complete the work. The same is true for complex cleanups, like having to carry items down multiple flights of stairs or removing an old heavy piano that needs to be disassembled in order to remove it safely, or other situations that require more time and/or manpower.
