How junk removal helped me to turn other's people's junk into gold!
Junk removal is one of the hottest new businesses around.
Your investment is 1.5 gallons of gas, and you have a car or truck.
Go to a website like Craigslist.org, check out the Free section:
Take washers, stoves, etc., even if you have to strap them to the roof!
Today, a washer is worth $8-12 in scrap.
Aluminum, copper, brass, and bronze pay more!
If you can't find one, a transmission shop will know.
Don't offer to pay, it's not worth your time.
Junk removal success requires that you find ways to use your services to pick up other's people's junk for free.
Tell them you are clean-cut and courteous.
People are nervous about having someone come to their home.
Many people need help on a small move, and don't want to hire a team.
This is a great niche to compliment your junk removal service.
Say you help with small moves at low rates.
Having a truck helps, but two hands is all it takes.
Telling people I care about recycling, and proper disposal has attracted clients away from competitors.
The fact I genuinely care comes across in my ads.
Maybe I'm losing a buck not dumping in the forest, but I'm building a reputation, which helps me feel good about what I'm doing, and helps me stick with this to to make something great in the end.
I cannot even imagine how busy I'd be in NYC, Boston, or someplace like that!
I'm helping people...and I'm recycling.
Get something small, and diesel (great MPG!!).
Trucks last forever, so don't fear used.
If money gets tight, branch out further!
