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.
