Why us

Why Us

When you arrange for total strangers to enter your property and remove your belongings (even though you consider them to be junk) you need to be able to trust them to do the job reliably and responsibly.

Junk-It has earned recognition for excellent customer care and dedication to providing a quality service which underscores and demonstrates our reliability and responsibility to our clients and to the environment.

Below is a list of the awards that Junk-It has won which demonstrate.

Since our formation in 2006 we have rapidly grown to become Scotland’s largest house and office clearance and junk removal company with depots in Glasgow, Edinburgh and the Central Belt.

Investors in People Award

Junk-It has won Investors in People recognition.

Ross Martin, director and founder, said: "Junk removal has traditionally suffered from a 'white van man' image and that is something we've been determined to change since we started the business back in 2006.

"Today is without question the proudest day in the history of our young company because we've all worked tirelessly to win this prestigious award and in so doing help to transform the public perception of our industry.

"Sure, we might only be 'junk guys', but by winning this award we've now proven that we're damn good 'junk guys', and I think that's what really separates us from the crowd."


Uniformed and Trained Staff

Best Green SME sponsored by SEPA Winner.

"Really innovative, inspiring to others and an approach which could be rolled out elsewhere," was how one judge summed up Junk-It's success.

The panel was impressed by the high proportion of waste which was saved from going to landfill by the removal firm's recycling efforts.

    Hi I had my garage cleared yesterday & I wanted to compliment the two young men who did an amazing job. They were punctual, polite, efficient & got the job done quickly. They also handled neighbours with courtesy. I would recommend your company to friends & family. Thank you very much for a great job.

    Ross and all the guys at Junk It offer a brilliant efficient and hassle free uplift service. I’ve used Junk It a few times to clear out offices of old furniture etc and they never disappoint. It’s great to know that most of the stuff they take away is re-used or recycled too. Don’t just chuck it – Junk It

    We have used Junk It on a number of occasions to carry out waste removal services. I can honestly say that the way in which the company operates, their fast response times, and overall methods are fantastic. It also gives us great peace of mind that we are dealing with a company who are totally up to date with SEPA and other environmental legislation, as we have come across many other waste management companies who are not fully aware of these issues. I would happily recommend Junk It to any other organisation.
