Hi I’m Eduardo Torres and I am your local owner and operator of the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise servicing South East Florida. I started my junk removal business in 2003 and since then we have done all kinds of junk removal from the heart of Miami to Coral Gables, Aventura, Pinecrest, Weston, Miramar and more. Remodelers, contractors, real estate agents, property managers, estate attorneys and many others have used our junk hauling service in Miami to clean out debris, office furniture, and just about any other junk one can imagine. Our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? team even handled a thirty truck load job for a national property manager on one day’s notice!
Residential customers also rely on our Miami junk hauling services. Just because there has been significant growth in the commercial sector doesn’t mean that we don’t do garage clean outs every day. It’s a big part of the business and it will continue to be so. Residential jobs also afford our team an upside that commercial business usually doesn’t—residential customers get rid of furniture and other household goods that can oftentimes be taken to charities. We’ve taken truckloads of perfectly usable furniture to charities like Women in Distress and Non-Violence Project USA.
We’ve also used our 1-800-GOT-JUNK? trucks to assist organizations like the Red Cross and AmeriCorps help hurricane victims rebuild their homes. We’ve provided junk hauling crews and removed truckloads of junk so these homes could be rebuilt. It’s definitely a "feel good" thing.
We’ve been fortunate to receive a lot of local press. In November 2004, almost a year after launching my junk removal operation in Miami, we were profiled in the weekly Business Monday Magazine and we generated enough interest to appear in other Miami area media, including the Miami Herald newspaper, The Sun-Sentinel and even a profile in Univision’s "Control" national TV program.
The office is located just off the never-ending traffic center of Miami, The Golden Glades Interchange. This is literally the highway nerve center of all of Miami-County. It is the crossroads for Interstate 95, The Florida Turnpike, Northwest 167th Street, and the the highway Miami locals love to hate, State Road 826, known here as The Palmetto. Being so close to the Golden Glades gives us convenient access to every main highway in Miami Dade and we can be anywhere in our territory within 45 minutes. It also makes it relatively easy for people to come visit us.
Miami franchise owner, Eduardo Torres, received a phone call from the Miami Dade chapter of the American Red Cross. They were looking for someone who would volunteer help to remove "some household items" from a house whose roof had been damaged by one of the hurricanes. It was a community project and they were looking for help from a number of companies. We quickly agreed to help out. In hindsight it wasn't surprising that the original estimate of about a half a truck became four full trucks of debris and two days of work, but we were happy to do it. What was pleasantly surprising was that we were recognized by The Red Cross and AmeriCorps as one the two principal contributors to this community effort. At the work completion ceremony, in the presence of Miami-Dade's mayor, Carlos Alvarez, we were one of two companies that received plaques in recognition of our efforts and contributions towards the site clean up.
Our community efforts extend to sponsoring local sports teams for kids. The past year we sponsored a Weston AYSO youth soccer team. They were kind enough to give us a plaque as a token of their gratitude.
