How we helped
We provided the same junk removal service to Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, as we would to our customers! We removed junk from inside their homes and hauled the items to the appropriate recycling and donation centers.
Across the six episodes we were involved in, approximately 30 Truck Team Members hauled away over 200 trucks full of junk, completely free of charge! We’d like to give a special shout-out to our six franchises involved: Greater LA, LA Metro, LA County, Burbank, Riverside, and Encino, who put in over 1,200 hours of work!
The Head of Construction for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, David Bohler, is appreciative of the work 1-800-GOT-JUNK? did on the show, stating that, “Our ‘Extreme’ homes require extreme flexibility and creativity. 1-800-GOT-JUNK? provided trucks to move around the job site at all hours as well as providing extra hands. They provided a solution for a unique situation, cutting down on loading time and making it easy for our crew to get the homes built!”
The team at Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is extremely grateful for how 1-800-GOT-JUNK? went above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly. Senior Locations Producer, Milan Vasic, showed his appreciation by stating, “The 1-800-GOT-JUNK? team was incredible! I want to give a shout-out and HUGE THANK YOU to the team at 1-800-GOT-JUNK? for all their help on the new season of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. They went the extra mile with a smile, showed up on time, every time and were there for us through some very challenging builds. We wouldn’t have had the success we did without them. I look forward to any future opportunities to work with them again.”
