    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.

    Hey Alex,

    Thank you again for the quick work with hauling all our trash away. I will definitely use your services again when needed.

    You might want to ask the mods to move this thread to the Northern CA section where you might get more hits!

    Thanks
    Vin

    Any chance they wanna sell the useless trailer? Or that it's sitting on the road unlocked? Asking for a cousin.

    Ha. I believe it was the renters fathers. Not sure why they couldn’t use it. From the sounds of it, they have since moved.
