1-800-GOT-JUNK? working with the Dr. Phil Show

When the Dr. Phil Show first addressed the issue of people holding on to too much junk, back in 2004, we recognized our considerable ability to contribute to the recovery of North Americans struggling with obsessive compulsive disorders or lifestyle stresses that result in an overwhelming struggle with junk. We had the experience of working with people challenged with a variety of junk jobs, and we possessed the geographical infrastructure to meet the needs of any Dr. Phil guest. 

Since reaching out to Dr. Phil and first working with his top-notch producers in early 2005, we have gone on to partner with the show on several occasions. Dr. Phil has brought to life the bittersweet and heartwarming stories of several people struggling with the debilitating problem of hoarding, and he’s highlighted how even those of us going through unusually stressful times can quickly find our homes and lives overrun by too much junk!

As a full service junk removal company our franchise partners have tackled everything from small scale garage cleanouts to messy home renovations to large property evictions. In a business where the main commodity is personal junk and the stakeholder is the person letting it go, emotions are often in play and compassion is always the order of the day for the1-800-GOT-JUNK? crew. 

At best junk removal involves releasing our attachment to personal things that may have defined us for a time. At worst, it supports the recovery of deep psychological behavior issues, such as hoarding. 

We’d like to share with you some of the lifestyle stories we’ve worked on in the hopes they’ll inspire anyone facing similar challenges to get some help from the professionals!

Actual Customer Reviews(Typos and all:)

"My parents recently sold their home and the last thing that needed done on closing day was for the balance of furniture/garbage,etc to be removed from the property. I didn't want any complications so I chose the company with the best reputation. Boy! Did I make the right decision. From beginning to end, this was a stress free service. I am WOWED! I booked online and quickly realized that the pick-up window timeframe I chose would be too early. I could not believe how easy it was to change my request. I truly believed I would be picking up the phone to call in to rectify it. morning I received a very courteous and professional call from Jesse who reconfirmed the address, items to be picked up and his estimated time that they would be there. They were on time for one thing, big smile and handshake, I'm sorry I don't remember Jesse's partner but he was awesome too! I went inside to do what I had to do and was surprised a short time later to hear that they were done and ready to go...anticipating to pick up bits and pieces of tiny garbage on the lawn, I grabbed a small garbage bag. Stepped on the porch and threw the bag back in the house! Spotless! I was given a gift certificate for my next call - which I will use for my own residence (I am renovating) and a gift certificate for your new sister company for moving as we are now seeking a new home for my parents and everything is in storage. Awesome work! These two certainly deserve a commendation! Thanks again for a job well done!"
