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?

While we may certainly try, it is almost impossible to guess the volume of your items over the phone.  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 recycler or 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 junk hauling business and we simply are not equipped or insured as a moving company. If you need your junk taken away, we’re your team!  

 

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 30 cubic yards. This is an above-average size of truck used for junk removal, allowing us to haul more than most companies,while remaining 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, see above.

But please, don’t get us wrong, if it’s truly junk, it goes to the dump!

JCalgary's Junk Removal Expertsohn Nicholby, Founder / Owner

After gaining solid experience in the junk hauling business, John Nicholby was simply tired of taking Calgary’s good quality junk to the dump. So, he started YYC Junk Removal to help Calgarians get rid of their unwanted junk…and recycle / re-home them all at the same time. But, enough of the touchy feely, here’s a few fun tidbits about John:  

  • Originally from the Sunshine Coast, BC. but doesn’t like yam fries.
  • Sometimes has trouble comprehending -30C weather…clearly not a born and raised Albertan.
  • Worked in the Canadian Oil Sands prior to working in the junk hauling and recycling biz.
  • Was surprised to discover that he enjoys sorting through junk…it’s like a treasure hunt everyday!

 

Kristine Nicholby, Co-Founder

Kristine brings a unique insight into YYC Junk Removal. As John’s partner, Kristine runs the online side of the company.  

  • Born and raised Calgarian, thus begins to wither without the bright winter sunlight.
  • Is an avid twicher (bird watcher) with a fondness for chickadees and nuthatches.
  • Enjoys trying and creating new dishes to eat.
  • Unique favourite vacation spot is the Albania Riviera.
