Here are the most common junk removal service questions we receive:

1. How much does 1-800-GOT-JUNK? cost?

Our prices are based on how much space your items take up in the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? truck! We don’t have any prices listed online because they vary from franchise to franchise, based on the landfill and recycling center fees for each area. 

When you call to book a free, onsite, no-obligation estimate, our professional and friendly team members will review the range of prices for your local area based on the amount of junk you tell them you have. Then our Truck Team Members will verify pricing when they arrive for the actual estimate. Find out more information about our pricing here.
