About Us

Junk-it have provided a quality and transparent junk removal, house clearance and office clearance service throughout Scotland since 2006.

The company was created to provide a high quality, value for money rubbish and junk removal service which didn’t exist in Scotland at the time. We now have operating centres across Scotland (mainly focused in Glasgow and Edinburgh) and are proud to work alongside many of the country’s leading brands and public sector bodies offering swift, efficient rubbish and junk removal for homeowners and businesses.

Community and Environmentally Friendly Junk Removal

Junk-it have always been ‘keen to be GREEN’ and very early on it quickly became apparent that we collected a lot of useful junk which was needlessly being destroyed.

We now work alongside a number of worthwhile charitable organisations, making regular donations of usable furniture, clothes and other small household items. In addition, we decided to only ever purchase new, low emission vehicles to reduce our carbon footprint.

Our commitment to the environment and sustainability has earned us Scottish Green Award Winners and ISO14401 accreditation and we have twice been finalists in National Recycling Awards for Waste Management Company of the Year.

Fill one of our trucks and we’ll plant a tree!

We are a proud partner of Trees for Life who plant trees in the Scotland Highlands on our behalf.

Our trees will be planted alongside other native trees, and in time will transform open hillsides into healthy young woodland, helping to restore the Caledonian forest. This rich habitat will support wildlife such as red squirrels, black grouse, capercaillie, pine martens and golden eagles.

By removing CO2 from the atmosphere and locking it up, trees also help to combat climate change. Check out how many trees we’ve planted so far in the Junk-it Grove.

Our Commitment to Customer Service

We aim to remove the heartache from junk removal, be that physical due to having to load a skip yourself or emotional by having to clear the contents of a loved one’s home. Our service exists to remove the stress.

Since our inception in 2006, Junk-it has grown rapidly and plans to continue to do so by embracing some pretty nifty technology, committing to first class customer service, finding innovative forms of responsible disposal and sticking to our environmental commitments.

We are here to roll up our sleeves and do all the hard work for you so you don’t have to. Simply show us what needs to be taken care of then sit back as our truck teams give you back your space.

Frequently Asked Questions

You bet we do! Company wide we average recycling rates in excess of 82%. Everything we do is about landfill diversion! We are ISO14001 accredited, Waste Management & Recycling Company of the Year finalist in 2010 and 2011 at the prestigious National Recycling Awards and Winners of the Scottish Green Awards. With us you’re in safe hands.

Our team loads your junk into the truck, clears up and takes it for sorting. We sort items for recycling, reuse or tipping. For recycling and tips we are charged according to the weight of material disposed of. Our charges reflect the costs of doing all this and also the expense of employing staff and running our trucks.

Our rates are based on the amount and type of junk being removed. Until we see what is to be removed, we can’t give you an exact price. Once at the premises but before starting a job, our team will review the materials to be removed and provide you with an obligation free quote of how much the job will cost.

To allow for unforeseen circumstances, such as traffic or jobs that were larger than expected, appointments are booked in two-hour slots. The truck team will call 15 to 30 minutes before arrival and give a firm arrival time.

3 piece suites are often bulky and cumbersome and can take up a whole lot of space however they don’t generally weigh a huge amount therefore we charge approximately £100 + vat equal to a quarter load. It is possible on many occasions that we are able to give your old sofa a new lease of life provided it is compliant with fire regulations. For an exact quote contact your nearest depot.

Absolutely! Our truck teams will provide each and every customer with a waste transfer note on completion of the collection. Waste transfer notes are provided regardless of whether we are removing household or commercial waste.

It has been known, yes! On occasion where a customer cannot meet us or keys are with a solicitor, estate agent or letting agent we will certainly try to assist and collect keys. In order to keep our costs as competitive as possible it would be preferable if someone with authorisation to sanction the work is contactable by phone whilst the truck team is on site?

No, all the labour is provided within our costs to deal with the heavy lifting and loading. Our uniformed staff can collect items from anywhere inside or outside the property. On occasion an additional labour charge may apply if it’s particularly labour intensive, time consuming or out with our normal working hours. As with all work undertaken, a detailed quote will be provided before any work is undertaken.

The majority is recycled or reused – by being given to charities, sold or taken to specialist recycling facilities. Where those options are not possible we take waste to licensed Waste Transfer Stations where it is sorted and disposed of in the least environmentally damaging manner possible.

We do all the loading and clean up for you and our charges reflect only the volume of junk we remove. With skip hire you have to pay for the entire volume of the skip, regardless of how much you fill. There is also the added hassle and expense of having to apply for a skip hire permit in advance and the fact that you have to do all the loading and clearing up yourself. On top of all that, you usually have to put up with neighbours using your skip to dump their own junk as well!

Not always. Provided we can access the junk from the road and we have your card details beforehand, we will call you once on site with an exact quote and then process your card payment remotely on completion. Equally, account customers often arrange for collections to occur without someone on site, and we simply invoice you following completion of the job.
