Junk removal service projects are usually priced by the truck load and by the hour (for manual labor). Cost will always vary depending on how much junk has to be removed from the premises. Usually, a free quote will be given to see how much your junk removal project will cost.
Factors That Make up a Junk Removal Estimate Include, But Are Not Limited To:
- Property size
- Location of property
- Type of property
- Functionality of major amenities (e.g. water, electricity, heat, plumbing)
- Materials to be disposed of
- Method of disposal
- Sanitation supplies (personal protective equipment (PPE), etc.)
- Number of crew members needed
- Time needed to complete project
Cost Factors Explained:
The size of the area that needs to be cleaned increases effort and time spent by the crew.
Location of Property:
The location of the property can increase the cost of transportation.
Type of Property:
Some properties are more difficult to remove junk from than others because of the way they are designed or the laws that regulate the standards by which that type of property must be cleaned.
Functionality of Major Amenities:
The availability of certain amenities on the property e.g. water, electricity, heat, and plumbing effect the supplies that we need to bring ourselves to perform the project.
Materials to be Disposed of:
Materials are important to consider when calculating junk removal costs. The presence of biohazards such as feces, urine, vomit, blood, and other bodily fluids present health hazards to those who come in contact with contaminated areas and items. Only highly-trained, certified technicians, like ours, should handle biohazard cleanup because proper precautionary measures like use of PPE should be practiced.
PPE and other sanitation methods are required to properly and legally complete some projects.
Number of Crew Members Needed:
Some projects require more crew members than others. The amount of crew members needed for a project depends in part on the size and type of property and the functionality of major amenities.
Time Needed to Complete Cleanup:
How much the client wants to be personally involved in the process also factors into pricing. For instance, simple junk or trash hauling with no client involvement uses less time and resources than full-on organization and sorting service.
