Highly recommend!! I needed to move a mattress from a friends place to my new house and I don’t have a truck so Nick made it very easy and helped us out! Saved me from having to rent a uhaul and the hassle. Thank you Nick!

These guys are great. Nick, Alex and Doug showed up on time & were very professional, efficient and polite. They wasted zero time in cleaning out my storage facility and even swept it out afterwards. Would definitely hire them again if needed.
They made the entire process so easy!! I sent pictures of all I had to get rid of and got a very fair quote in less than 5 minutes. I was even able to schedule pickup for that afternoon. They kept me informed of their arrival and then quickly packed it all up. Really pleasant to work with, amazing customer service and hard-working. Will definitely be using them again!

Experience was incredible! Nick came within 20 minutes of me calling to get rid of my old box spring that I wanted out of my place ASAP! Defiantly would use again! Amazing customer service and very quick!!
I recently used American River Hauling services to remove some items from my storage unit, and I’m so thankful! From beginning to end, Duke & Alex provided such excellent service! They were professional, very respectful, and communicated well. The removal was done quickly & with ease. Overall the topper for me personally is that they were gentlemen with genuinely caring hearts, and also the system they use to schedule, remind, pay, etc. I Highly recommend this business & will use again! Thank you American River Hauling, you’re the best in the area for sure!

Nick was great ... He called within minutes of me submitting his online form, talked through the job, made it work with our schedule since we had to get it done quickly, showed up on time and took care of everything. His crew even swept up afterward. They were professional and made it easy.

Nick has been absolutely amazing! He was easy, on time (even a tiny bit early) and thorough. We loved the process so much the first time, we’ve already used them a second time. They can break down most anything too and you don’t have to move anything beforehand. Loyal customer for life!

Junk Removal Changed My Life

When Alyssa got the call from her dream job up here in Folsom, and that she got it, I knew it was the end of my insurance career.  I never would have dreamed my life would soon be the face of Folsom junk removal, let alone being the top provider of junk removal Sacramento trusts.  Bittersweet, we followed God’s call for our lives leaving our friends and family behind and drove 6 or 7 hours north (actually it was a bit more since towing a car behind a U-Haul is the worst!).

Being blessed with such a supportive wife, I interviewed for months looking for that perfect fit.  There was no pressure to settle.  And as you probably can tell, it never came.  I’ve never liked being a cog in a wheel of a machine that only cares about profits, and not about the community they operate in.  That’s when she told me, ‘why don’t we start our own business then?’

After a few white water rafting trips down the American River, and of course a few pints at the local breweries with new friends, we narrowed it down to a few qualities.  I wanted to be able to help the community, I wasn’t afraid of getting dirty, and I love to drive.  She jokingly said that I should be a junk hauler, and a month or two later we purchased our first dump truck.

I haven’t looked back, and I’ve been so incredibly thankful for all the families I’ve been able to help serve.  Whether it’s been giving them appliances or providing appliance removal service, or furniture removal service, or simply removing the trash that someone has that’s been piling up for months in their side yard or garage, I can’t go back.

I hope that whatever you do for work, you find purpose in it, just as I do — even as a trash man.  My friends think it’s funny that I call myself a trash man and not the owner of a junk removal company.  Frankly, I’ll take any blessing to be humbled.  We thank God everyday for the life that He’s given us, and for the the lessons he continues to teach.  I started my career thinking I was better than a lot of my peers due to my test scores and upbringing, but I’m not.  I’m not at all.  And if it’s one thing God continues to teach me through starting a career in waste management, dumpster rentals, and being the junk removal Sacramento trusts, it’s humility.  It’s pretty easy when you’re knee deep in junk everyday, but I wouldn’t change it for anything.

FAQ about Junk Removal Services

FAQ about Junk Removal Services

Junk removal prices are going to cost on average $270.  Most company minimums from licensed and insured businesses are going to start around $95, with a full truck load rate of $800.  If items are extra heavy or require special handling, they will warrant additional charges.
Check your city website in order to find out how to get rid of your junk for free.  Some cities offer 1 – 3 bulky item pickups per year, however, the wait time can take several weeks or months, and they have specific limits for what they do and do not accept.  Your local junk removal expert will be able to assist much quicker, and at an affordable rate.
In preparing for a junk removal, it’s important to know exactly what you’re looking to get rid of.  If there are any items that your local junk removal service does not accept, or if there are extra fees for specific items, you need to inform them of that over the phone when getting your preliminary quote.  A picture helps when determining the amount of space everything will take in the truck as well.  Most importantly, it’s important to be clear and honest with your junk removal expert.  If you share all the items that you want removed, and then when they show up and you ask if they can take a couch as well, there will most likely be an additional charge.
When hiring a local junk removal, it’s important to get a licensed and insured company for your own protection.  If an employee of the junk removal service has a slip or fall, or injury hauling your junk, you are liable for their medical bills.  Protect yourself and pay a little bit more by hiring a credible, licensed, and insured company.  The expenses for a credible junk removal company include gas, dump fees, insurance, labor, licensing, vehicle and tool maintenance, and marketing.  If you’re looking for a junk removal service that will cost you less than $50, know that you are possibly hiring a company that may not be compliant in your city/state and exposes you to risk.
What is the best junk removal service near me?  Well that depends on where you are!  The quality of companies that offer junk removal services nearest you vary significantly.  Check reviews, and always make sure that your debris removal service company is properly licensed and insured.  A uniformed company with high quality equipment is a tell tale sign that they will provide you with honest and accurate estimates.  That’s the most important factor when determining the best junk removal service in your area.
What junk removal companies do with the junk varies greatly.  Some take everything to the landfill, others donate or recycle as many items as possible.  Common places for an item’s final destination include the following:
  • Landfill
  • Recycle Center
  • Donation Center
  • Consignment Center
  • Homeless Shelter
  • Given to a family in need
American River Hauling and Junk Removal Co. has an appliance donation program that pairs families in need with a working appliance at a nominal cost (occasional minor transportation fee depending on distance).  We’re proud to donate toys to children for the holidays, shoes and warm clothing to the homeless, and couches and other various items to veterans.
