An In-Depth Explanation How We Price

Limited Offer: Save $40 Off Your Junk Removal

At Trash Can Willy's, we believe in transparent pricing that's based on real expenses, not gimmicks. While competitors might charge based on "truck space", we calculate our prices based on disposal weight and time.

Our goal is always to reduce your job's disposal weight and completion time. We reduce the weight by recycling, repurposing, and yes - even reselling your items. We reduce the time by using the largest trucks in the business so we aren't dumping them all day long. Plain simple math - not wild west gimmicks! 

Our pricing is typically 30% lower than national franchise chains. Since our owner runs the show and we don't pay franchise fees, our overhead is lower, resulting in more affordable rates for our customers. Our trucks are significantly larger than those of our local competitors, cutting down on dumping time and labor costs, which we then pass on to you. We're committed to recycling, donating, and even reselling items to reduce dump fees, saving you even more. Plus, if we can resell your items, we offer discounts of 30 to 40% off their market value. Additionally, we earn a small fee for disposing of your metal items, allowing us to provide further discounts to our customers.

Our Prices vs The Competition Further Explained

When it comes to pricing, we stand apart from the competition. While most junk removal companies charge by the volume of their truck, we take a different approach. We believe that every junk removal is unique, so it doesn't make sense to use a one-size-fits-all format. Here's why our pricing method is better:

Firstly, we consider items that can be donated, recycled, or resold when pricing your junk removal. This means you won't be overcharged for items that could be repurposed or given to those in need. Additionally, if your junk is easily accessible, you shouldn't pay extra for a volume charge based on more difficult locations. We value items of worth and offer discounts accordingly, rather than lumping everything as junk.

These are just some of the reasons why using a company like 1800Got&%*# and similar franchises might not be the best choice. They often use a cookie-cutter pricing structure that doesn't prioritize your individual needs.

Furthermore, our staff retention rate is double the industry average at 90% yearly. This is because we treat and pay our staff as professionals, ensuring they're equipped to estimate jobs accurately and save you money. Our drivers are trained not only in properly sorting loads but also in recognizing items of value and determining their fair market price. This means more discounted prices for our customers and a commitment to providing the best service possible.

In Summary...

Let's be real here. Nobody wants to fork out a ton of cash to get rid of their junk. We get it, and we're here to lend a hand. But guess what? We've got some tricks up our sleeves to keep those costs down and keep you coming back for more. Check it out:

First off, we're big on recycling. Paper, glass, plastics, metals – you name it, we're turning it into something else. Last year alone, we recycled a whopping 500,000 pounds! Pretty impressive, huh?

But wait, there's more! Anything that's not quite garbage but isn't suitable for recycling, we donate to those in need. Toys, furniture, books, computers, even canned goods and clothes – it's all going to good causes, including the Epilepsy Foundation.

And get this – our pick-up service starts at just $35! That's right, two guys, a 17' box truck, coming to your place, hauling away your junk, cleaning up afterward, and taking great care of it all. Now that's a steal, right?

Oh, and here's a juicy tidbit straight from Old Willy himself – he'll pay YOU for your junk! Yup, you heard that right. If he can sell it, that crazy old coot will hand you some cash for your stuff. Although, between you and me, his wife won't let him bring home all your junk – can't blame her for that!

Unfortunately, we can't provide an exact price without chatting with you first. Here are a few things we need to know:

  • Where's the junk located? Apartment, house, or maybe even a treehouse?
  • How heavy is it? Will we need special equipment like a piano hoist?
  • Is it awkward to move? Can you even lift it?
  • What exactly needs to go? No, we don't take spouses!
  • How many people will we need? Maybe just a few, or even the whole family including Cousin Bob!
  • Is it lots of small items or something big that requires a crane truck?
  • And yes, we've seen it all, whether it's in a barn, on the third floor, or even on a church roof!

We could put generic pricing on our site, but honestly, we want to give you the very best price possible to earn your business now and in the future. That wouldn't be fair, so let's chat. Give Willy a call, and if we can't figure it out over the phone, Willy will swing by to say hi and see what we can do for you. Thanks so much, and we hope to hear from you soon!
