Q. What makes you better than the BIG guys?
A.We simply charge per load and will add a surcharge based on HEAVY loads as we are charged per 100lbs OR per ton at the county landfill. Whether you are removing furniture, junk or any kind of non-toxic disposable material.
Bottom line: We don’t charge as much and we GUARANTEE your satisfaction! The big brightly colored huge corporate trucks you see are…EXPENSIVE. The overhead to run these trucks, the employees, the offices, all means that when they are quoting jobs at your house, you can almost always expect a MUCH bigger fee than you anticipated. We simply charge per load and will add a surcharge based on HEAVY loads as we are charged per 100lbs OR per ton at the county landfill. The landfill charges $4 per 100lbs OR $80 per ton. We do estimate any overage based on weight, but we are extremely fair and you will know the total fee BEFORE we start the job.
Q. What kind of truck do you use…what is considered a LOAD?
A. We use a long bed pickup truck. This allows us to get in and out of yards and jobsites easily AND allows us and YOU to see exactly how much a LOAD is. We pack it full to a safe capacity, secure the load, and head to the landfill. With the big corporate haulers, they have huge trucks, but a LOAD is only a percentage of the filled truck…so for instance, you might pay their minimum load fee (much higher than ours) for 1/8 of the filled truck. That is an estimate and you have to take their word for it. Our truck load is bigger than their minimum load amount. We have hired them personally, we have seen it done, and we don’t want you paying exorbitant fees to get rid of junk!
Q. What if I only have 1 couch that needs to be taken away?
A. Our goal is your satisfaction and if the job is quick and not big, we promise to be as fair as possible. Our only requirement is that you be within our Maryland service area for dump or disposal service.
If you only missed trash day and have a few bags, or just 1 or 2 items, and they are not extremely heavy, you would be subject to our minimum load pricing, but for extremely small loads, it IS possible we could price your job even below our posted pricing. Our goal is your satisfaction and if the job is quick and not big, we promise to be as fair as possible.
Q. Can you come TODAY??
A. We make every effort to schedule jobs as quickly as possible. Some clients have LOTS of stuff, or even total garage/attic cleanouts, but in some cases, if we are working a big job, we can leave that one, and head to another client who only has a small one. Again, we try to our best to accommodate!
Q. Do you take credit cards?
A. Yes! We can send a paypal link upon completion of job and you can pay by credit card.
