Ready for Your Junk Pickup?
Let’s face it… a majority of us have never hired a junk hauler before. All we know is we have a lot of unwanted items/ debris we want cleared out! We at Big Haul Junk Removal have come together and compiled a list of helpful hints, and ideas to get you ready for your junk pickup.
TIP #1: Get your items/ debris ready for haul. Gather all items, debris, appliances, etc. in a pile or a general area (garage, carport, back patio, a room in the house, etc.) If you have any abundance of smaller items- knickknacks, dishes, toys, etc. It is best to have it boxed and bagged prior to haul away. All appliances should be emptied and rid of any waste, dishes, water, etc. All appliances must be unplugged prior to haul away- Fridges, freezers need to be defrosted. *** Due to strict garbage service laws we are not allowed to haul away any food refuge. Any food items from appliances will need to be disposed in weekly trash pickup.
TIP # 2: Once you have all your items ready it’s best to sort out donations, and any major appliances, gas powered items, tires, and electronics off to the side. Make sure your pile is rid of any paints, hazardous materials, chemicals (please refer to our blog on Paint for instructions for how you dispose of this type of material.)
TIP #3: If you live in a state where the weather can vary (rain, snow, etc.) And your items/ debris are outside it would be best to keep it undercover, or cover with a tarp to keep from getting wet.
TIP #5: Book- it. At Big Haul Junk removal our schedule is usually very flexible. Generally we can get you scheduled in 24- 48 hrs during the week–same day is often available –give us a call at 877-770-4285. If you are looking to schedule for a weekend we recommend booking a few days in advance to secure your appointment window. The weekends fill up rather quickly. So if it’s your preferred date try to let us know as soon as possible!
TIP #6: Appointment day! We schedule our appointments in 2- hour windows. Our crew will give a courtesy call 20 to 30 minutes prior to arrival the day of pickup. Upon arrival, the team will assess your need and provide a firm no obligation quote upfront. If you are happy with it, they can get your items out for you right then and there.
TIP #7: Completion! Once your pickup is complete our crew will write your invoice and process your payment onsite. We accept all major debit, credit cards including AMEX/ Discover!
Items we DO NOT accept: any hazardous waste, chemicals, fecal matter, paint, gas, oil, light bulbs, etc., cleaning/ gardening chemicals, bug infested items, cresol, asbestos, or asbestos-containing materials, vessels, or large amounts of asphalt roofing shingles.
