Why you should call Junk-it instead of a white van man

It’s tempting to just call up ‘white van man’ when you want to get rid of your junk or waste material quickly, cheaply and with “no questions asked.”

However, there are downsides to white van man:

  • There’s no guarantee that your items are disposed of legally where required.
  • They may not be insured to cover damage to your property when removing items.
  • They can be unreliable when it comes to pickup times.
  • Their pricing can be ‘flexible’.

Junk-it, on the other hand, are above board in all departments and we always remove your junk or waste material when we say we will and within the law (we NEVER fly-tip!). We also work closely with charities to ensure that reusable items are made available to those who need them most.

I’ve used Junk-It before and this time was just as good. A very quick, professional and courteous service. Connor and Pete, the guys who came to the house could not have been more pleasant or professional leaving not a trace of rubbish behind. Thanks guys.

Amazing work from Paul and Thomas who didn't get afraid of removing our huge heavy meeting desk to get down from the 4th floor by the stairs. Super friendly, convenient and efficient!

Five star service and worth its weight in gold!! Enquired about moving large pieces of furniture from a house move and it was done only a few days later with precision and in a timely manner. Mikey and Jamie were very professional and I’ve already recommended them to many people. Wouldn’t hesitate to use them again!.
