    I’ve been doing hauling/junk removal over the past 5 years, on and off. I started taking it more serious at the start of all the shut downs, work got slow, and I knew I needed a back up plan. I started a company, registered with my county, and got insurance.


    My current goal is to be able to quit my full time job, and work for myself.
    A few months last summer I made more doing junk removal than I made at my full time job in a month period, while working less than 1/4 of the amount. But the winter/colder seasons I was dead slow at times.

    For anyone who has Facebook or Instagram, I would really appreciate a like/follow, even clicking around our website helps, and if there’s anything I can do to help promote your business let me know!

    We did 10 loads from a hoarder house last year, I don’t have all the pictures but pretty much every room in the house looked like the garage:

    Looks like it’s working out for you, I see guys on YouTube renting dump trailers out as basically a portable dumpster.

    Had an interesting job today! Customer had a trailer full of junk but didn’t have a vehicle they wanted to tow it with.

    I thought about offering to just take it to the dump but decided against it due to liability.
