GREAT JUNK REMOVAL

One of the most important things to check before hiring a junk removal company is if they have the proper insurance in place before they set foot on your property. The licensing and insurance regulations governing this industry are there to protect you, the customer, from any damages or injuries suffered on your property. Because of the low barrier to entry for this business – basically anyone with a truck thinks they can do the job – there are a great many fly-by-night operations who promise to do all sorts of things they are unqualified or uninsured to do.

That’s why working with a fully licensed and insured company, like Great Junk Removal, is so important. We do the work efficiently and professionally, and all the while you’re completely protected by our insurance policies – both Worker’s Compensation and an Umbrella Policy covering your property.

It’s also important to be wary of the companies out there claiming to do junk removal and a laundry list of other services. If you come across a company claiming to do demolition, handyman, moving, gutter cleaning, and so on and so forth, on top of junk removal, you should be extremely cautious. Nine out of ten of these operations do not carry the proper insurance and are not licensed to do the work they offer their customers.

This kind of company could end up costing you far more than the cost of services, so, to protect yourself and your property, you should only hire a junk removal company that carries all of the necessary protections – like Great Junk Removal! Call (773) 628-7055 today to speak with a real junk removal professional, and get rid of that unsightly debris once and for all.

Great Junk Removal was founded by our family on the firmly held belief that there was a market in Northern Chicago for responsible, eco-friendly junk removal services. We began just as any small business, with a dream and a mission – to deliver the finest professional service at the lowest possible cost with minimal impact to the environment – and today, many years from where we started, the dream is alive and well.

Our mission never ends but every single day we do our part, in combination with our customers, to stop the rampant dumping of recyclable, reusable material into landfills. All the while, we do an excellent job of assisting Northern Chicago residents with managing the clutter that we know can build up quickly, and do it all at a price that the corporate franchises will never be able to match.

We began just as any small business, with a dream and a mission – to deliver the finest professional service at the lowest possible cost with minimal impact to the environment – and today, many years from where we started, the dream is alive and well. Our mission never ends but every single day we do our part, in combination with our customers, to stop the rampant dumping of recyclable, reusable material into landfills. All the while, we do an excellent job of assisting Chicago residents with managing the clutter that we know can build up quickly, and do it all at a price that the corporate franchises will never be able to match.

 

Great Junk Removal is locally-owned, family-run, full-service, and unmatched in service and professionalism.

 

We operate from the standpoint that everything we do, from cleaning out a garage to disposing of commercial refuse in a vacant office space, has an effect – be it positive or negative – on the environment, so we take steps to ensure that every choice we make, product we use, and technique we employ leaves the environment better off, cleaner, and more healthy for the plants, animals, and people who depend on it. We do this by recycling everything we can, donating everything of reusable quality, and delivering e-waste and other regulated materials to their proper disposal facilities. Over 88% of the junk and trash we remove for our customers is reused or recycled – a fact we are extremely proud of – and our customers call us for that very reason. So, if you have clutter you need to clear out, remember to call Great Junk Removal to ensure it ends up doing the most good for others and the environment. You can depend on us to make the responsible choice for you, for Chicago, and the environment we all share.

 

An Unmatched Record of Donation & Recycling

 

The people of Chicago know the value of environmental protection and preservation. You cannot live in such a large urban area without having been privy to discussions about the waste and refuse the city produces on a daily basis. It’s one of the unfortunate side-effects of a city this size, and even the suburbs are not immune. Landfills have to be located somewhere, and, more often than not, the suburbs end up bearing at least a portion of the urban waste production. It’s one of the reasons we started Great Junk Removal – to do our part, along with our customers, to affect change in an industry we saw as being too interested in profit and not enough in the future feasibility of their practices. We do everything we can to ensure everything we haul off ends up where it can do the most good, and you might be surprised at how infrequently the landfill is even used for our projects. A mere 12% of the junk we remove ends up filling space in a landfill, and we couldn’t be any prouder of that fact. It’s not 100% yet, but we’re constantly making strides in the right direction, and know, with your help, we’ll get there someday!

 

Our Motivation

 

Every day that we, Great Junk Removal, are given the responsibility to change lives by clearing clutter is a day we cherish.

Our motivation can be summed up as follows and we think it shows:

  • Providing the finest junk removal service available anywhere.
  • Staying on the cutting-edge of “Green” waste removal techniques and technologies.
  • Offering the most competitive rates in all of Chicago.

Our Insurance Protection

 

The experienced cleanup crews at Great Junk Removal are fully insured and highly-trained to do their jobs in a safe, controlled, and efficient manner. When we arrive on your property, we treat it as our own with all of the attention and care you would expect from an industry-leading professional organization. The simple goal is to complete the task as quickly as possible without affecting the property in any negative way. Our intensive training program focuses heavily on the importance of careful consideration and planning before any work is attempted. This approach minimizes surprises and maximizes efficient workflow – something our customers tell us makes all the difference.

 

Straightforward Pricing

 

Great Junk Removal believes in being upfront and transparent when it comes to pricing and our estimates for service. We utilize 24-yard trucks – almost double what our competition uses – to ensure our customers save money on the highest-quality junk removal, trash cleanouts, and hoarding circumstances you can find in the greater Chicagoland area. It is important to note that, while not impossible, it is difficult to give an exact estimate based solely on a phone conversation, so we offer a rough estimate to callers without first seeing their required workload. For the most accurate price quote, we recommend customers email as many detailed photographs as possible or allow one of our skilled professionals to visit the site in-person to gauge the amount of work needed, type of debris or junk to be removed, etc. Once we have the details, we will offer a free, no obligation quote for services needed to satisfy your needs.

 

Complete Solutions

 

Great Junk Removal is a full-service junk removal company, so we not only haul the junk from your home or office and dispose of it in a eco-friendly, responsible manner, but we will do every bit of the lifting, loading, and tidying up. As soon as the truck arrives, just point our cleanup crew to your clutter and relax. They will take care of everything for you, so you can get back to doing what you want to do and let the professionals solve your clutter issues.
