Aren’t all junk removal companies the same?

Aren’t all junk removal companies the same?

The short answer is no. Junk removal companies do typically offer a similar baseline service, which is to clean the space obviously, but above that they can do so much more.  The city of Toronto tends to be a good place for junk removal as most houses have basements in the area and the average homeowner uses their basement for storage of all types.  The old cliché “Out of sight, out of mind” works well in this case.  Storing large amounts of materials in your basement can also be a dangerous thing if you have moisture problems which can make organic material like paper and cardboard rot and create an environment that is hazardous to your health.

You may be wondering how to choose a junk removal company and the highlights below will form a good guideline for your search.

Environmental issues

One thing that sets apart the average junk removal company from the competition is how they feel about recycling.  Companies like 1-888-I-AM-JUNK make it a point to recycle as much of your trash as possible to minimize the chance that it will wind up in a landfill.  This is a good way to reduce your own carbon footprint while freeing yourself of large quantities of junk that you probably had no way to haul away on your own.  Recycling materials is the best way to take care of the planet and make your old junk go farther.

Trash Removal

Not every junk removal company will take trash way.  To be specific, they will take away old building materials, appliances and furniture, but only some will not actually remove garbage and trash due to health concerns.  Also some will expect a greater fee for doing so which can become quite expensive.  The better junk removal companies have large trucks and can offer services for less than truckload amount of waste, which allows them to assist multiple customers and offer the best price for each project.

Unwanted Furniture

Some companies like 1-888-I-AM-JUNK specialize in tackling large pieces of furniture.  These items can be cumbersome and difficult to move without a team, but when you initially book the junk removal service, you can specify the type of items you need to have pulled out and they will be sure to provide a crew that can get it done swiftly and carefully so as not to damage the home in any way.

These are some of the main ways a junk removal company will separate themselves from the competition in the Toronto area.  Aside from these, bigger operations like 1-888-I-AM-JUNK can handle multiple jobs in the area before heading to the dump, which allows them to offer better pricing due to the larger capacity.  Many can also offer speedy services with large trucks so you can get your debris removed during off hours or weekends if it is an emergency.  The factors that set junk removal companies apart and earn them the most customers are those mentioned above and if they are passionate about recycling it is a win-win for the customer and the environment.
