1-800-GOT-JUNK? Franchise Partner Bill Schaugg has been providing Metro Detroit with on-time service, upfront rates, and friendly uniformed drivers since 2009. When Bill started the franchise, he had a goal to keep everything out of the landfill, and provide our friends in the Metro Detroit area with an exceptional service. With our eager truck team members, we’re proud to bring this service to you!
1-800-GOT-JUNK? serves as an eco-friendly alternative to typical trash pickups and is great for big projects. Our truck team crew members are fully insured, so we can go anywhere on the premises: the attic, basement, crawl space and garage; you just point and we remove the items. We eliminate the need to haul junk out to the curb yourself!
There’s no need to have a big roll-off dumpster in your driveway for weeks--one call to us and the junk will disappear the same day without you even lifting a finger. We will give you a free estimate before we begin so there are no hidden fees at the end. We’ll never call to say the load is heavier than expected, and expect you to pay more. We won't leave a container in your driveway for the neighbors to see for weeks. We won't damage your driveway with our containers (since we just bring a truck), but we will do all the work for you!
Our drivers are trained in recycling practices, so we won't just take your items to the landfill. When we pull out of the driveway, our job has just begun; we’ve built great relationships with recyclers throughout Metro Detroit.

We have had so much fun getting involved in community events! They have provided us with some surprises and opportunities to meet people who need our junk removal service. We were contacted by the horn section of the University of Michigan Marching Band after they saw our junk pickup trucks driving about and asked if they could "adopt" us for the year. We provided them all 1-800-GOT-JUNK? t-shirts and had a blast taking pictures of them perched on one of our junk pickup trucks!
We also love to sign up for local parades. You can always find our junk removers there! Every year we are in the Ann Arbor 4th of July Parade as well as the Chelsea Festival of Lights Parade held in December. Last year we decided to do some fundraising work and signed up for Climb Detroit, an event run by the American Lung Association. We wore our Powered By Junk shirts and ran/walked all the steps to the top of the Renaissance Center in downtown Detroit.
We had a major challenge in August of 2006 when we had a fire in our office on Washtenaw Ave. in Ann Arbor. Old and faulty wiring caused a fire behind a wall which immediately burst into flames and thick, choking smoke. We were there at the time and were able to get our staff, computers and files outside quickly. There were residential apartments above our office in the same building, so our junk crew ran upstairs and pounded on doors to wake everyone up and get them out. It turns out that there were no smoke alarms upstairs, so our junk crew helped prevent a potential tragedy. The fire was put out quickly by the fast and professional work of the Ann Arbor Fire Department.
Culture and the blue wig spirit are extremely important to our junk removal business and help us attract fantastic people to haul junk for us. Junk hauling is really hard work, so the fun element helps all of us look forward to the next day of junk pickups and keeps us all motivated to give our best to every client. We encourage our junk removers to bring their own spirit and creativity to each and every trash hauling job.
