Whether you’re a seasoned junk removal expert or novice to having your junk removed, YYC Junk Removal is here to answer your questions. Below are a few common questions we hear every day. If your answer’s not here, just let us know!
Do I have to be onsite?
No. If we can access the junk that you want removed, we can look at the junk, give you a quote, remove the junk, and take payment via e-transfer or credit card.
Can I always get a quote over the phone?
Unfortunately, no. Every junk removal job is different and to give you the most accurate pricing for your unique junk removal, the YYC Junk team finds that quoting in person, or at least after seeing your junk, is the way to give you this accuracy in pricing.
Why YYC Junk Removal?
We are a local, Calgary-based business, led by John Nicholby who is highly experienced in the junk hauling business. We are the socially responsible option for junk removal, believing in recycling and repurposing. Prompt, efficient, and very easy to do business with!
Are you licensed?
Heck yes, of course! It’s a matter of legality and integrity!
How soon should I book?
Book as soon as you think about it. It’s important to know that at the beginning and end of the month, the best time slots go quickly as this is when everyone is clearing out their items. If you know you want something removed, do not put it off. Book it ASAP to get the removal time you want.
Where does my junk go?
We do our best to donate items our charitable partners or recycle them prior to throwing it away If your junk is truly junk, we will properly dispose of it at a landfill.
When are you available?
YYC Junk operates from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm, 7 days a week. If you need an earlier or later pickup, please contact us.
If I’m moving, will you move my stuff too?
YYC Junk is a hauling junk business and we simply are not equipped or insured as a moving company. If you need your junk taken away, we’re your team. If you need to move…we can’t help.
How do I get ready for you?
Simple. Know what you want us to take. Let us know what and where it is, and we will do everything else for you. To ensure a quick and efficient quote (and pickup), if you put your junk together in one spot makes it easier for us to give the most accurate quote, but is not absolutely necessary.
How big is your truck?
The YYC Junk Removal truck is 25 cubic yards. While this is an above average size of junk removal truck, allowing us to haul more than most companies, we are able to remain fuel efficient. Don’t worry though, pricing is based on the size of your junk haul, not our truck.
Why not rent a junk bin and do it myself?
Our prices are competitive with the cost of renting a bin.Think of it this way: if you rent a bin, you pay for any space you don’t use, and you have to do all the heavy lifting yourself! When using YYC Junk, you are saved time, effort, and often, money.
Do you take chemicals?
No, unfortunately chemicals require special licensing to transport and dispose of. For a list of what we do and do not take, visit our What We Take page.
