It is possibly the least expensive business of all to start up. You don’t even need a truck…just rent one.
Work part time from home. No need for a shop or office, or set hours. Haul on weekends. Haul in the evenings after your job. If you’re looking for an easy-to-start business with flexible hours, this is the one.
Demand for the service. American homes are overflowing with junk. Many people don’t have a truck and don’t have time to haul away their junk. The service has become so popular that some national companies have annual sales exceeding $200 million. It’s a great time to start a junk removal business.
No advertising cost. Since the decline of yellow pages advertising, Craigslist has become the #1 source for junk hauling customers. It’s free, so you have the same access to customers as the big, expensive companies like 1-800-Got-Junk. Andbecause you will charge much less than what the big companies charge, you will be BUSY.
Treasure hunting. You would be shocked at what some people throw away! Working electronics, collectibles, sporting goods, etc. Clean that stuff up and sell it on Craigslist for pure extra profit.
A truck. Don’t have a truck? Rent one for $19.95 a day.
A $30 moving dolly and ramp. You can rent these too.
A professional looking craigslist ad. We provide you with a sharp, professional looking ad that you can post to the top of Craigslist Services every morning.
A strong work ethic. Though the money is GREAT, this business is for people willing to work hard for it.
We show you the rules. There are some items you simply cannot transport to the landfill. Other items must be recycled. We educate you on these "problem" items so you don’t get slapped with a big fine.
Pricing. You should be charging per cubic yard. Not all jobs are the same…some junk and debris is stored in cramped ba ts and attics, while other items are simply hauled out of the garage. We give you pricing guides based on current junk hauling rates.
Extra Income Opportunities. There are opportunities beyond Craigslist. Certain businesses require hauling services regularly all year round. We show you how to find them and secure their business.
Our Craigslist Ad. Most junk haulers on Craigslist have unprofessional looking ads. You’ve seen them: poor grammar and spelling, no color, and no pictures. Your professionally designed ad will get more calls and more emails because you put forth a trustworthy image. More importantly, we show you how to post the ad to the top of the list every morning and stay visible all day every day.
