Benefits of Junk Removal Over Skip Hire

There are fans of both options and what it comes down to is what works best for you. How much time do you have? How strong are you? What’s your budget? What’s your time frame? How do your neighbours feel about a huge box blocking the street?

Introducing the Benefits of Junk Removal.

By hiring a Professional Junk Removal company like Junk-It you really do take all the worry and stress out of getting back your space. All the heavy lifting up and down flights of stairs, expensive disposal costs, flat tyres, ruined clothing, personal injury or sometimes most importantly your time are all taken care of by our friendly, uniformed drivers. As they brave the potential hazards and confusion sometimes brought up you can simply point to what’s going and then go put your feet up and enjoy a coffee. Quite often Skip Hire can see you landed with a large and offensive box blocking your road and irritating your neighbours. In the dark of night couches and other interesting items also seem to make their way into it which results in costing you money.

Benefits of Junk Removal.

By hiring a responsible company the benefits of junk removal surpass your wallet and time, they also have an impact on the environment. By being SEPA certified (Scottish Environmental Protection Agency) there are better controlled and regulated disposal options. Your unwanted items are passed onto charities, recycled through product specific stations and transfer stations or even up-cycled as available.

In the end it really comes down to you, do you want to do the heavy lifting yourself? Are you savvy enough to get rid of your things responsibly? Do you have the space for the skip for a week or so? Can you see yourself reaping the benefits of junk removal?

I phoned many companies prior to speaking with Sarah, and i decided to chose junk-it because of her friendly, helpful customer service. After clearing out, i felt embarrassed with the amount of rubbish I had gathered. However, when Dom, Charlie, and Mikey came for collection, they couldn’t be any nicer. It was as if no job was too much. I felt so relaxed, i asked them to price another area of my property where old garden toys, and other rubbish needs removed. Thanks for being so lovely and I'll definitely be back in touch for your help again soon.

I've used Junk-It a number of times now, and every time I do, I am reminded of how I would never look for another junk removal company. They are just perfect! From a super-quick response from Sarah (on a bank holiday!), booked in for exactly my preferred time, a phone call when the truck was on the way, and then super efficient removal of my items. Jordan and Alex were the team on this day, and they were champions! Lovely, relaxed and chatty, while being quick, calm, organised and making the removal (including two very large sideboards) seem so easy! Thanks guys!

Fantastic service, easy to book, easy to pay and customer service is outstanding. The team arrived on time, professional and friendly, got the job done and left everything clean and tidy. I would def recommend and I will be using Junk It again when I clear out my garage.

My law firm used Junk-It a third time (hence another review) to remove two office bookcases and a chair. The appointment was very prompt, I called Friday afternoon and was able to get an uplift appointment Monday afternoon. I was given a window for the uplift and the drivers called in advance to advise of their ETA, and thereafter arrived right on time. Connor, Charlie, and Alex in Glasgow were exceptional and exemplified the highest standard of professionalism and efficiency during the uplift. It was seamless and at a very reasonable cost. I highly recommend Junk-It for a smooth, hassle-free service.

Mikey and Pete were brilliant! 08.05.24 - Phoned to let me know they were on the way- gave me a quote for the job and lifted the stuff there and then. They were friendly courteous and very hard working - so glad I phoned Glasgow junk it and will def get them back for future work. Highly recommend.
