Laurie Baggio1-800-GOT-JUNK? Portland
Hi, my name is Laurie Anthony Baggio and I, along with my wife Chantel and three kids, Caius, Ava, and Marcus, own 1-800-GOT-JUNK?'s junk hauling operation in Portland. We have been in business for five years. Our franchise serves all of Washington County, most of Clackamas County and about half of Multnomah County. We initially launched in Tigard, then moved to Sylvan Heights for a couple of years until we settled here on SW Barbur Blvd.
Since starting our junk removal company in 2003 we have helped over 10,000 customers remove their junk and rubbish and get their space back. We are confident that our business will continue to grow as people find out that there is a good alternative to renting a drop box or borrowing a truck and doing the work themselves. We think the best thing about this business is the reaction of customers at the end of each junk removal. They are generally surprised at how easy and fast the whole process is. They like knowing that not everything is going to the landfill. We'll recycle as much as we can, or if the junk is still usable, there's a good chance we'll donate it to charity. Having a nice clean space, whether it’s a garage, basement or extra bedroom, is the best part. There are many times that the customers are relieved because the clean up is something that they had put off for months.
I have been a part of 1-800-GOT-JUNK? since 2001, originally working as the VP, Franchise Development, and later, Strategy, for the company. While watching many 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise owners become successful, I decided to acquire Portland in June of 2003. My first general manager, Tom Maryschak, who lived in Beaverton, ended up joining the corporate office and now owns his own 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise. Today, Mark Papenfuhs is the general manager for 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Portland. "Getting into the junk hauling business was never really part of my plan, but the more I found out about it, the better I liked it. I took over running the Portland franchise in October of 2005. Since then, we have more than doubled the revenue from our junk removals. We have added three more 1-800-GOT-JUNK? junk hauling trucks and are now up to seven."
Our office is located at 9442 SW Barbur Blvd., Portland 97219. That's just a few miles southwest of downtown Portland and just outside of Tigard near the Metro Transit Center. Barbur Blvd. is also known as Hwy 99 West.
My name is Ben Hoskins and I'm the Franchise Partner for the Portland North 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise. We serve North and North East Portland, much of South East Portland, Gresham, Troutdale and all of Clark County Washington, including Vancouver, Camas, Washougal and Battle Ground.
I originally started a 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise in San Diego, but when my wife and I moved to Vancouver, WA in 2006 I was able to purchase an existing franchise that served Vancouver as well as North and East Portland and Gresham. Now we have an office in the Lincoln section of Vancouver, as well as on Broadway in Portland's Hollywood district. You may also see our trucks parked in Vancouver in Salmon Creek, Fishers Landing, and on Mill Plain near Southwest Washington Medical Center. In Portland you've probably seen them parked in North Portland at Albina and Lombard, in Laurelhurst, North of Mt. Tabor and in Irvington on MLK Blvd., amongst other places.
We pride ourselves on donating and recycling as much of the materials we collect on each job as possible. We are able to donate literally tons of items each month in Portland to the Goodwill on 122nd, and in Vancouver on 117th. We are also able to recycle metal, paper, plastics and other items at a number of recycling centers in Portland, Gresham, Troutdale and Vancouver. Additionally, we only utilize transfer stations that sort and recycle materials - even though it is cheaper to dump our trucks at landfills - because we want to make sure items are recycled.
We consider recycling and donating part of the superior service we provide customers. Our employees take pride in wowing people with the level of service we provide in our junk removal and hauling, and a big part of that is going the extra mile to keep items out of landfills and maximize their reuse.
If you need help with junk removal, a trashout, hauling, or recycling because you're remodeling, cleaning up a garage or moving, we're looking forward to meeting you and helping out!
