Does Size Really Matter?

It’s a question that has been debated for centuries and FINALLY the team at Junk It HQ have found the answer! No not to THAT question but the question of whether to consider Skip Hire or not!

When hiring a skip there are a number of things to consider…

Do you have enough junk to justify the cost?

Will you be able to find space for the skip so that it doesn’t cause obstructions to neighbours, traffic or local business?

You will need to pay for a skip hire or parking bay suspension license, which takes time, extra cost, plus not all your junk may be able to go into the skip: Gas bottles, electrical equipment (WEEE), Tyres, TVs & computer screens, Fridges and freezers, Batteries, Plasterboard, Fluorescent tubes etc.

In addition you have to spend time loading your junk yourself!

At Junk it we offer you the perfect eco friendly solution! Well what did you expect from Scotland’s largest licensed man and van rubbish Collection Company! Our custom designed trucks are perfect for getting to those remote or difficult places where a skip is not feasible. Our trained teams will do all the heavy lifting and loading- plus we collect, reuse and recycle all those items which aren’t allowed in skips!

But how have we solved the issue of size we hear you cry?! Our tucks are 12 cubic yards- equivalent to two domestic skips! We know, impressive.

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.
