The biggest advantage of going with a professional Junk Removal and Dumpster Rental company is that you get to sit back relax knowing the job will be done right and professionally! The trick lies in not falling for those fly by night operators that feature cheap prices over the phone. They may sound good on the line, but the problems only start when you end the call. They may not show up, they may increase the price when they do come out. If you have ever moved, this type of tactic will sound familiar to you. Then it could even get worse, they may not be insured. They could damage yours, or your neighbors’ property. They could get injured and sue you. If everything goes fine at your site, your concerns are not over, when they leave. Then there is the matter of disposing of your waste, are they doing it properly, are they adhering to the dumping bylaws in your area or are they illegally dumping your waste and junk. If the guy with his pickup can’t be located YOU COULD BE HELD LIABLE. How do you avoid the trap?
Tips for a happy haul away! Junk Removal in Surrey
The company should answer the phone when you call. Your time is worth something and you want to avoid the phone tag game. Ensure that when you call the service provider that you get a professional sounding sales agent and if you are on hold listen to how professional the on-hold message is. The more professional these aspects are, the more likely that you are dealing with a reputable company.
A reputable junk removal company typically will provide free estimates. The price will be based on the amount of junk and type of materials to be removed. Furthermore, applicable fees should be included in the estimate, so there are no surprises down the line.
Don’t trust a quote from a junk hauler that does not offer to come out and give free on-site estimates. It is impossible for a junk removal service to provide you with an accurate price without seeing exactly what junk or waste items you have to be hauled away. In addition it is nice to get an on-site quote. This is also a way of judging the quality of customer service a company offers without paying a dime. This is your opportunity to observe the volume of the truck. Size does matter!
For example you may get an estimate over the phone 150 dollars for a truck load of junk to be hauled away from a guy with a pick up. Now that may sound reasonable. But a professional hauler may come out with a truck that can hold 8 times the amount of trash. The price maybe the same as the pick up driver or a lot less given their higher volume efficiencies. So if you have more to haul, simple math shows who you will likely keep more cash in your pocket.
