Before you hire a junk removal company to clean out a house, apartment, or commercial space you need to make sure that you are getting exactly what you need and at the price you can afford. So there are three simple questions you should ask your junk removal company before you hire them. 

1. Are You Licensed and Insured?

Every business needs to have a business license. This is a simple bar to pass. If a junk removal company isn’t license than may advice is to stay away from that junk removal company. You also need to verify that your junk removal company is insured. Insurance protects you against legal actions in case a worker is harmed during a junk removal on your property. Insurance also protects your property from damage by the junk removal service.

2. Will You Haul Away All My Junk?

Many junk removal services have limits on what types of junk they will haul away. For instance paint and cleaners are almost always verboten. But many junk removal services also won’t haul away electronics like televisions and computer monitors. Some junk removal companies have even more esoteric limits on what they won’t haul away. One major junk removal company for instance won’t haul away pianos. 

So make sure the junk removal company you’ve chosen will haul way the junk you want hauled away.

3. How Much Do You Charge and Does that Price Cover the Cost of Labor?

As a general rule of thumb junk removal services price their services one of two ways: a flat rate per load, or by how full you fill the truck. Regardless of which pricing structure they use make sure the price you are quoted includes labor. Quite often junk removal companies will give you an estimate that does not include labor. If a junk removal company charges for labor ask them how much extra they charge.

If you ask these three questions you’ll be better informed and be able to make a smarter choice when it comes time to choose a junk removal company.
