When removing junk from your property, you have two choices, you can rent a dumpster or hire a junk removal service. There are several factors you should consider before decided which solution is best for you.

Let’s take a look at a rundown of your options.

Dumpster Rentals

rent a dumpsterDumpster rentals vary drastically in pricing, depending on the size of the dumpster, the length of the project and the location of the property. Prices can range anywhere between $50-$900. In addition, other fees may apply such as weight limit fees and parking permits.

Another thing to be aware of is the weight of the dumpster. When filled with debris dumpsters can easily weigh 2 tons. These heavy containers can cause damage to driveways and property

When a dumpster makes sence

  • If you want to load the container yourself over the course of several days.
  • If you have at least 7 cubic yards of debris (otherwise you are paying for more space than you need).

Hiring a Phoenix Junk Removal Company for Property Cleanups

By azjunk | Jun 22, 2016 | Comments Off on Hiring a Phoenix Junk Removal Company for Property Cleanups
Phoenix arizona trash out

Realtors and property management companies can profit from hiring a junk removal company.

Selling a home quickly is the goal of any real estate agent. When obtaining a new listing, sometimes, the property is far from ready to show to prospective buyers.  Clutter, such as, furniture, trash and a backyard full of junk can quickly become overwhelming. A junk removal company can take a large load off your shoulders by restoring the property to its glory.

reo property cleanup

Shy of cleaning the floors and walls, a good junk removal company can turn a complete disaster into a success; in less than 24 hours. We offer an REO trash-out service that is designed for real estate agents and property managers.

Most realtors who have worked with junk removal companies know the value of having a trusted removal company in their pocket like an ace-in-the-hole. On average in the U.S., a homeowner will sell their home after six years; during this time it’s easy to end up with a garage or backyard full of clutter. I know. I have experienced this first hand, when I had to move recently after only two years; I had an entire garage full of unpacked boxes and other random clutter, most of which I really didn’t need.

It’s no mystery, when selling a home the condition of the property is a factor in maximizing profits.  Even a garage containing boxes or trash can negatively affect the final closing price by thousands of dollars.

I’m a Real Estate Professional, I Can Remove the Junk Myself


I provide cleanup services for a realtor professional who works for Century 21 here in Phoenix. He calls me from time to time to handle his real estate property cleanups. Before he began contracting my company he would clean out the properties himself. I asked him, “What would you do when you obtained a listing that required more than just the removal of a few items?”.  He said, he would contact friends or get family to help. Well, that was until this cleanup came knocking at his door:

From then on, he uses our REO trash-out services for all his cleanup needs. The thing he likes most about hiring us is that we can clean up the property without needing him to show up to the property. Additionally, we are able to recycle or donate most of the junk left behind.

Property Management Companies Need Junk Removal Companies Too

Just like realtors, property managers and management companies see their share of trash filled homes. Instead of hiring someone off craigslist, or someone how comes “highly-recommended”, a professional hauling and trash removal company can save you a world of heartache. When we provide our services for a property management company or realtor we will complete the removal of all trash, junk, furniture and appliances then send photos of the cleaned property via text message. This is what many property managers like about using us for all their property trash-outs.

We look forward to becoming your personal contact for all your Arizona properties’ REO junk removal needs.

Summer time in Phoenix is moving time – why?

By azjunk | May 15, 2016 | Comments Off on Summer time in Phoenix is moving time – why?

Because it’s 210°, that’s why. During this time of year, we do more Moving Clean Outs than any other time.

We’ve all been there: you’ve moved everything to your new place…but the old place is still overwhelmingly chaotic with random junk.

Random JunkHere, in the good ole U.S. of A., the motto is “he who dies with the most toys wins”.

It’s our obsession with “stuff” that makes us stand out from other countries. We have surplus of space, and we fill it quickly – most of the time with junk. Stuff collects and you don’t realize it until the time comes to move.

Take it from me: if I had a dollar for every time I’ve shown up to a job with a garage full of unwanted items, I wouldn’t be writing this blog post.

Hiring a professional clean-out company is an easy way to rid yourself of that final phase of a never-ending move.

Since many moving companies in Phoenix don’t offer move-out cleaning services, you’re left with the task of disposing of all the junk or trash you didn’t want carry over to your new home. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. This is a common part of the moving process – so much so that we provide a service dedicated to moving clean outs.

Yard sales, dumpster rentals, and bulk trash pickups are alternative solutions to hiring a junk removal company, but each has their setbacks.

If you are looking for a hands-off approach to cleaning up your property after a move, call us, mention this post for 15% off our standard cleanout junk removal pricing. 

I have helped Phoenix homeowners with their moving experience for over 20 years, completing hundreds of moving trash outs. My company understands the ins-and-outs to professionally and quickly remove unwanted junk from your old property. We also recycle or donate any of your unwanted junk.

Since we’ve seen it all, you need not worry about the condition of your old home or apartment; here are some of the moving clean-outs we have completed.

From storage unit clean-outs to apartment and house move-outs, we can take care of the mess – no need to be on-site while we clean up.

We also provide commercial clean-outs and trash-outs.

Licensed and insured, we are qualified to remove unwanted junk from your office or commercial store space. We also work hand-in-hand with realtors, property managers and offer discounts for REO property clean-outs.
