Junk Removal

I recently did a bathroom renovation and had a large amount of junk that needed to go to the recycling/waste facility. I have seen a number of positive reviews about this company and trust this site so I gave them a call. They were very polite on the phone and answered all my questions including that everything possible would be recycled. They arrived at the scheduled time and provided me with a reasonable price and proceeded to clean up the area. The two man crew were polite, professional and fast. The area was cleaned up and swept clean. I was very impressed and will recommend this company to all my family and friends.

Moving out

I have to say that I was impressed with the service provided by 505-junk. The very reason I chose to go with this company was based on the reviews I read on this site, and it was the right decision I made. From the moment I called the first time, I was greeted warmly, and was provided with through explanations about their services including what to expect. On the day of the service, I had a lot more junk than I expected and the two gentlemen who came to do the job did not even complain for the unexpected additional work! They started their job with an introduction, and stayed calm and courteous throughout the whole process. All the work was done very carefully and I was impressed with their work. They even apologized for the additional time that was needed to clean out the junk I had, and to be honest this was NOT their fault but mine. After all the work was done, I offered them tip (which most services businesses ask for) and their response blew me away. The response was, "We do not expect any tip as we believe great service should be expected from us."
I would definitely use their services again, and would recommend to anyone I care about when they need any type of junk removal service. Based on my experience, this business delivers honest, efficient, and professional service at a very reasonable price. Thank you, 505-junk.

Estate Clear out

I hired 505-Junk to help clear out my mother's house which was abandoned for over two years. Barry was very professional and efficient in handling my job. He got the estimate out to me the same day that I called him. After I approved the estimate he had the first pick up scheduled the day after. They were even able to recycle and donate some of my materials. Including two scrap cars that were sitting for over 20 years. I am very appreciative of the integrity of the crew. Especially Derek Mann, who found my mother's wedding ring and money that had been put away. After the job was completed my bill was well under the quoted price. Thanks 505-Junk.

Junk removal/donation

I have used 505-Junk twice; they couldn't have been more helpful and professional on both occasions. Their customer service is excellent, both via phone and in person, and the movers who came to my apartment were incredibly fast and efficient. The fact that 505-Junk also donate items to the Salvation Army is an added bonus. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Hi Darci,

Thank you kindly for the great review. Alex and Brent let us know that the job went very well and that they were able to recycle a significant portion of the material at Richmond EcoWaste. Have a great weekend!
