nick and Alex on junk removal job site

I recently used American River junk removal 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 and Junk Removal, you’re the best in the area for sure!

backyard pile in Sacramento ready for junk removal

I’ve had 2 separate trash hauls in the last two weeks from Alex and Duke. They showed up on time and completed the job so quickly I was in shock. The level of communication and professionalism is the best I’ve experienced. Some of these waste disposal folks can be a little sketchy, these guys make you feel safe. When you give them pics of your haul, they give you an honest estimate and stick to it. I’ll continue using them in the future and highly recommend them to friends/family.

happy customers after receiving junk removal service

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 and trash 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 American River Junk Removal and his service.

Here’s my absolute favorite review.  It’s one Alyssa and I worked when we first started that she won’t let me forget about!

Showed up the day I called them and worked in the pouring rain and in the dark. They got all the junk out of my side yard making it safe for my daughter and dogs again. Totally recommend this junk removal company and would use them again.

About Us: How Junk Changed My Life

Sacramento, Here We Come!

When Alyssa got the call from her dream job up here in Sacramento, 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 Sacramento junk removal.  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 all over Sacramento 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 disposal machine that only cares about profits, and not about the community or space they operate in.  That’s when she told me, ‘why don’t we start our own business then?’

Starting Our Own Business

After a few white water rafting trips down the American River, and of course a few pints at the local Sacramento breweries with new friends, we narrowed it down to a few qualities.  I wanted to be able to help our 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 for our yet-to-be-named junk hauling company in the heart of Sacramento.

I haven’t looked back, and I’ve been so incredibly thankful for all the families and local charities I’ve been able to help serve.  Whether it’s a simple junk pick up, trash hauling, demolition job, or electronics recycling, it feels great to provide the heavy-lifting for clients that want competent professionals to haul away their unwanted furniture or items.

What I’ve Learned

I hope that whatever you do for work, you find purpose in it, just as I do — even with junk.  My friends think it’s funny that I call myself a trash man and not the founder of a locally-owned company that consistently out performs competitors.  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, rubbish removal, and being Sacramento’s junk removal company of choice, it’s humility.  It’s pretty easy when you’re knee deep in waste everyday, but I wouldn’t change it for anything.

Frequently Asked Questions

Junk removal prices are going to cost on average $270.  Most junk removal 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.  It’s definitely not a free or cheap service.
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 removal 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 junk removal, it’s important to know exactly what junk 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 service 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 junk hauling 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 from your home, 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 service, 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 removal service that is credible, licensed, and insured.  The expenses for a credible junk removal company include gas to your home, dump fees, insurance, labor, licensing, vehicle and tool maintenance, and marketing services.  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 your home is!  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 from your home 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 set for removal 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.
