    What a brilliant move! You are the epitome of American entrepreneurship. Best wishes and keep up the good work.
    P.S. I’m curious as to how you developed your rate structure on charging customers.

    Man I love stories like this. If there is a will, there is a way. This is literally what the American dream is all about.

    Thanks, I’ve actually been off my full time job for a few weeks because I broke my hand doing junk removal… I’ve still been working for myself one handed and having one employee work with me. The cast is a good conversation starter with customers and the grind don’t stop!!

    Did a bunch of little jobs one handed, and a couple big ones that took a long time but got them done and the customers were still happy.

    I’d like to get into junk removal but I’d probably want to keep or try to resell half of the crap and Hoard too much of it.

    Lucky for me there’s rarely anything worth selling, and I have kept a few random things.

    cleared out a T-Mobile location that had gone out of business (there are 5 of them within like 2 miles of each other). Remove everything, cap off electrical, broom finish.

    On the way to the dump with a full trailer had a tire blow out. Good times! Didn’t have a spare but made it home without ruining the wheel. Luckily Tractor Supply stocks pre-mounted trailer wheel/tires!
