Getting rid of old junk creates space for new belongings, such as a softer sofa, a flatter TV, and handsomer children. Upgrade everything with this Groupon.
$79 for $188 Worth of Junk-Removal Services
Arriving in a 400-cubic-foot truck, helpful crewmembers remove 19 different categories of office, household, or general junk, including appliances, leaves, and scrap metal. Junk-removal experts charge according to the volume of the truck bed that an individual load occupies. Technicians charge $188 for 1/6 of a load and $221 for 1/4 of a load. Half of a load costs $323, whereas a full load is $538. The volume of 1/6 of a load is roughly equivalent to a sofa and recliner, or the size of a standard refrigerator and a few small items.
This Groupon does not include any flat fees required to safely recycle or dispose of environmentally hazardous materials, such as tube televisions ($12), refrigerators and freezers ($25), or car batteries ($10).
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.
