We are not your average junk removal service in Sonoma – we take customer service extremely seriously, and strive to turn the ordinary business of junk removal into an extraordinary service. We do this every day through our highly trained call centre, based in Vancouver, Canada, to our friendly uniformed truck team members, who will take anything non-toxic that two people can lift.
We make people’s lives better every day by helping them reclaim their space, and ensuring that whatever you have that you want gone gets disposed of properly and safely. Most often, people hire us after they’ve moved, when they’re doing fall or spring cleaning, when the kids move out of the house, when they’re having an estate sale, or after an eviction (for property managers).
We’re especially proud of our same-day service (which means you can call us or book your junk removal online, and we can be there the very same day to take your junk away).
1-800-GOT-JUNK? Sonoma is also dedicated to the environment. We only use transfer stations, charities, and recycling centres for disposal of the junk we collect. None of your items will go to a dump or landfill. If an item we pick up is in good enough condition to be reused, we donate it to a local charity, such as Sutter Hospice Thrift. If an item is recyclable - and many are - we ensure it is dropped off at the proper recycling facility so that it is disposed of properly.
When I’m not running the business, I’m spending time enjoying the outdoors going surfing, hiking, camping, backpacking, motorcycling, and so on. There is no better place to get outside than Sonoma County, after all.
I can’t wait to help you reclaim your space. Give us a call today, or book your junk removal online to save $10!
