Why do we guarantee junk removal costs?
After over 15 years of doing this we know that the number one complaint about other junk removal companies is the lack of transparent, clear pricing prior to the pick up. We want everything from your initial conversation to the day of pick up to be as easy and enjoyable as possible, because we know quite often while we’re doing the removal you’re juggling family, life, or business!
How do we determine your junk removal costs
No matter how it’s branded or broken down 95% of junk removal businesses charge by volume. Cubic yards are the standard unit of measurement that the waste industry uses when discussing volume and as a simple rule of thumb, the more large items (total cubic yardage volume) you have the more you should expect to pay.
For an easy reference in estimating your pick up – a cubic yard (1 yd3) is a little larger than the average size of a washing machine or a stove.
We use a 15-cubic yard truck (8ft x 10ft x 5ft), and our rates are based on how much room your unwanted items take up in our trucks. Imagine moving, hauling and recycling one washing machine, seven washing machines (half of our trucks), and then finally 15 washing machines (roughly a full truck) and consider the weight, time, and challenges and the price rising gradually as you move up the scale to a full truck. It’s really that simple!
Junk removal trucks come in all shapes and sizes, and we want to make sure you get the best value for your money. We encourage you to compare junk removal prices by cubic yard and the service quality of the business, not by the truckload, item count, or other methods that can inflate the price.
We charge by volume and how we work, here’s why
We will work with you to remove the items you need and pack our truck as tightly as possible to minimize your bill. Think of it like this during your junk removal appointment: we’re playing tetris with your couch, coffee table, and the old lamp, or maybe it’s a pile of construction debris you need cleaned out of the back yard.
We’re going to put the coffee table on the seats of your couch and fit the lamp inside, taking ½ the space!
We believe in exceptional service and at a fair price…and we will do our best to keep cost down for you.
Tipping Etiquette: Do I tip my Junk Removal Specialists after the removal?

We suggest that if you feel like our work goes above and beyond, you can mention a tip while checking out, or you can call our office at 312-800-1940 to add a tip if they have already left the job site.
Tips usually depend on the size and difficulty of the job, and the tip value is really is up to your judgement. Typically, we see tips similar to other service industries such as restaurants or barbers/hair stylists.

JUNK Relief price exceptions and special junk removal projects
There can be exceptions to this structure if we’re working on a special project. In those instances, we may factor in weight, location, or extra labor accordingly. You will always be advised of that before we start working.
A couple of examples of JUNK Relief’s removal exceptions:
- Large quantities of bricks or concrete may top out the weight limit of our trucks and incur a weight surcharge
- Hoarding situations with intensive sorting for personal items or moving of items may require additional labor.
- Large projects such as cleaning out an office building or warehouse with large amounts of furniture/equipment disassembly may require labor adjustments
