These guys were great to work with. I appreciated that they were very responsive, always reaching out within minutes . An appointment was scheduled right when I wanted it. Nick kept me updated re: arrival time and got right to work. My spa was removed in record time and Nick cleaned up thoroughly. The price beat two other bids. I will definitely use them again!

Stellar service! I requested a quote online in the middle of the night and when I called in the morning, Nick said he was just waiting for a reasonable hour to call me. I explained that I needed some furniture, trash, and junk removed by the afternoon. He asked for photos and immediately provide a very reasonable quote. He arrived within 2 hours and completed the job. Nick was professional, prompt, and pleasant. I am so appreciative and offer my highest recommendation for his service.

These guys are GREAT! Nick reached out right away after I filled out their online form, and they were out the next day picking up a desk I needed removed. They were quick, didn’t need any direct contact, and I would highly recommend using them again.

American River Hauling was responsive, courteous, and professional. We had called a few other hauling businesses but weren't having any luck getting called back. These guys were on top of it, immediately providing a quote and an ETA. They even made a courtesy call to let us know when they were thirty minutes from arrival. Very professional and very pleasant to deal with. I'd use them again and will recommend them to family.

Moving can be really stressful and I'm so grateful that our experience with their service was very smooth from start to finish. Nicholas was very easy to communicate with, the team was punctual, and they were able to get the job done quickly and efficiently. It was so seamless, and we're happy we tapped them to haul out our stuff. Very competitive rates too! If you're moving and want hauling items for disposal to be less stressful, we highly recommend these guys.

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.
