Taking care of the inside and outside of your home can get costly, and you want to make sure you are getting the best deal. So when you are thinking about getting rid of the old basement furniture or need an entire estate cleaned out, you’ll want to know exactly what kind of numbers you are up against when checking out junk removal services.
How Much Does Junk Removal Cost? Figuring Out Estimates
So how much does junk removal cost? Well, it depends on how much stuff you have and whether anything needs to be deconstructed. For example, if you have a large piece of office equipment that was built into the house and now no longer fits through any doorways, many companies will deconstruct the piece of furniture in order to get it out of the building.
Most companies charge by the volume of things they are taking away. If you are only removing a couple of appliances or a couch, your total will obviously be a lot less than if you are clearing out an entire estate or if you need hoarding services.
Typically when filling up about ¼ of a loading truck, you can expect to spend from about $250–$300 on junk removal. To put it visually, this would be roughly the amount of space that a small couch, an appliance, and maybe a couple of boxes or large trash bags would take up.
When you fill up ½ of a loading truck, you can expect to spend about $350–$400 on junk removal services. This roughly equates to a large couch, a bedroom set consisting of a mattress, bed frame, and a dresser, as well as a small number of full boxes or bags.
Filling up ¾ of a loading truck for a junk removal service can typically cost you about $450–$500 to haul away. The amount of stuff that would fill ¾ of a loading truck would be a large couch, an entertainment stand, a refrigerator, a bed frame and mattress, and several full boxes or bags.
If you need heavy-duty junk removal services, that would fill an entire truck, with a cost between $550 and $700. Filling an entire truck would include a large sectional sofa, a refrigerator, a washer/dryer, a stove, a bedroom set consisting of a mattress and bed frame, and several full boxes and bags.
Of course you want to ensure that you ask the junk removal company if they charge extra for services like deconstruction, going up flights of stairs, or for carpet removal. If your items are especially heavy, check with the company to see if they charge more for extra heavy furniture or appliances.
