When not contained in trunks, junk can be more of a nuisance than a pleasure. Correct your clutter crisis with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get $189 worth of junk removal from 1-800-GOT-JUNK, a de-stuffing service that’s been buzzed about on Dr. Phil, The Huffington Post, and CNBC.
1-800-GOT-JUNK will haul away (and sweep up any leftover debris) any of your unwanteds that can be lifted by two people (soiled sofas, dumpy dryers, tangled brambles, and garden refuse). Check here for a complete list of what qualifies. After booking an appointment, an expert team will survey the loot and give an estimate—all pricing is based upon volume. Items are booted off to the dump or transfer station, and 1-800-GOT-JUNK recycles whenever possible.
Rounding up willing, strong arms to assist with house cleaning is never easy. Hiring someone else to haul away the junk ensures that it’ll get done. Instead of dusting around decrepit dressers or excusing useless appliances, use this chance to finally part ways with old junk to make room for new junk.
The Huffington Post, Success magazine, American Executive magazine, and CNBC have all featured interviews with 1-800-GOT-JUNK founder Brian Scudamore. The company has also appeared on Dr. Phil to settle a clutter crisis and regularly appears on A&E's Hoarders. NPR mentioned the Kansas City branch. More than 1,210 Facebookers are fans.
- Sometimes what Got Junk hauls away has significant value: nearly new sporting goods, antique jewelry and classic comic books. But other times it truly is junk — like the recent Kansas City pickup of 8,000 pounds of cheese intended for catfish bait. – Wendy Kaufman, NPR
Since 1989, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? has saved more than 1.5 billion pounds of possessions from nearby landfills, earning mentions on Dr. Phil and a starring role on A&E's Hoarders. After booking appointments, clients receive a two-hour window during which the crew will arrive, as well as a warning phone call 15–30 minutes before its actual appearance. Once onsite, the team quickly clears away 19 types of undesirable items from cluttered homes, businesses, and construction sites, loading them into their truck before thoroughly cleaning the vacated area to make way for life-size statues of Felix Unger, the patron saint of cleanliness. Once loaded, the bric-a-brac makes its way to recycling centers, donation drops, and safe disposal sites, preventing usable furniture, computer monitors, and worn-out banana suits from languishing in landfills.
