Please leave a kind word of thanks & praise to the (2) Gentlemen who arrived & carted junk away - they were prompt, efficient and helpful. Overall, a very positive experience...thank you.

I had one of the most pleasant experiences ever dealing with Barry and Alex today. Two more friendly and HARD WORKING guys you are unlikely to find, not to mention courteous and enthusiastic. I had a monster double recliner couch(as well as a lot of other heavy stuff) I was absolutely dreading removing, well, you made it look easy! Everything went like clockwork. You just impressed the heck out of me and I can't say enough. I wish you all the best and success in the future. You certainly deserve it. Many thanks! Ray Veillet.....Burnaby, BC

Ray,

It was an absolute pleasure to work with you. Meeting great new people every day is one of the benefits of working in a service-based industry and you were no exception. We can definitely agree with you that the double recliner couch was a big one - but we stand by our saying of "if it can get in there, it can get out!" We look forward to working with you in the future.

Junk Removal

I had a lot of junk to remove before moving out and decided to go with these guys and I'm glad I did. They were professional, personable and prompt and helping me get rid of all the garbage I had like wood, old furniture, sofas, steel and gardening stuff. Cost would have been cheaper if it weren't for the old heavy 200 lbs tv cabinet I had, which they tried to recycle for me but the transfer station took it as garbage; hence the extra cost to dump it. So I appreciate that they tried to save me money. I also appreciate that they donated my sofas and tiling tools which were still in very good condition. I would use them again if needed. Thanks Scott and Alex!

Hi Nancy, thank you for the honest review! We are very happy to hear that you appreciated the professionalism and promptness - we will be sure to pass that along to our newest employee, Alex. Unfortunately the cabinet was not accepted as an item to be donated - however we were still able to recycle a significant portion of the material. We look forward to working with you again in the future!

505 Junk

These guys are fantastic. I had to move and had a sofa bed and a love seat to get rid of due to new furniture and called a junk company and they couldn't let me know exactly when they could come about, but these guys gave me the date and time and they were there as promised give a hour or two. They didn't over charge either and very friendly and you couldn't ask for anyone better to do your job. Of all the junk removal companies out there, these guys are the first on my list and would highly recommend them to anyone I come across.

Furniture and Junk Removal

Wow 505-Junk! Was super impressed with their speedy booking, and professional and courteous demeanor. They hauled away my old furniture and junk from the house and back yard. This was accomplished quickly and efficiently. They even managed to get the couch through a tight squeeze up the stairway without damaging the walls. I also like that they recycle and help out various charities.
And all this for cheaper than those other junk removal fellows!
Have already recommended them to my friends and co-workers.
Well done!

New furniture, spring cleaning

Recently after some cleaning up around the house, we noticed that we had accumulated a few things we no longer needed. On top of this, we were replacing some old furniture in the house. Because of the large volume of junk we had, we decided to call 505-junk.

Not only were they able to come when it was convenient for us, but Barry and Scott were very professional, neat, curteous, respectful, and knowledgeable. On top of this, anything that could be recycled instead of thrown out was separated, and anything that could be re-used was donated.

The biggest surprise at the end was how little it actually cost for such great service. I would recommend 505-junk for anyone, whether you be an individual, or business. Whatever the volume, Barry and Scott can handle it!

Nick, thank you very much for the rating on Homestars! You and your family were a pleasure to work with and we were more than happy to be able to recycle a significant portion of your material. This allowed us to greatly reduce your final bill, which is a win-win situation for everyone - including Mother Nature!

Basement junk removal

We bought a groupon-like discount coupon for 505-JUNK and were a bit skeptical as other groupons have not worked out so well. From beginning to end 505-Junk was friendly, efficient and professional. They showed up at our house at the time that they said the would and gave me an almost perfect estimate of the cost of the waste. The staff was helpful and were not "sketchy" like other companies that we have used. We are using this company again to assist with the in-law's townhouse.
