We're still hauling junk. Learn how we are keeping our workers and our customers safe during this time

What are the Qualities of a Good Junk Removal Company

You have some junk to be hauled away and you know you don’t have the time to do it yourself. You do some looking online and find several junk removal businesses in your area. Now you have to decide which one to call.

Pricing is important, but it shouldn’t necessarily be the deciding factor. After all, you could find help on Craigslist from some guy with a truck. Yet, you don’t know anything about this person and if something happens while they’re taking away your stuff whose responsible.

Adequate Equipment

You want to make sure they have the equipment to take care of your project. You Washington DC Junk Removal Companydon’t want a company making multiple trips because they only have a small truck. Likewise, you should make sure they have enough manpower if it’s going to be a big project. Again you don’t want the project drawn out because a single person is hauling everything out to the truck

Cleanup Afterward

If you have a pile of trash off to the side or expecting them to haul away an old hot tub or shed, you don’t want them to leave a mess behind. A responsible hauler will sweep up everything so that all you have left is an empty space.

Prompt Removal

The whole idea behind hiring a junk removal company is to save you time. If you end up waiting around hours after the scheduled appointment, it’s not only an inconvenience. It could also cause you to be late for work or for picking the kids up from school. The cable company gives you a 4-hour window in which they’ll arrive, but a reputable junk removal company should be more specific than that.

If they are running late for some reason they should let you know immediately so you can reschedule if necessary.

Are They Eco-Friendly

This might not be a major consideration to your choice, but it should be. Every year its estimated that 254 million tons of waste is taken to landfills in the U.S. Anything that can be done to cut down on that number will help the environment. In areas with a larger population, the amount of space in the

Donating reusable items to a charity

landfill could become an issue, as well.

An eco-friendly junk removal company will only take what is absolutely necessary to the landfill. They’ll look for items that can be donated or recycled. When you speak with a hauler, ask them if they do anything to lessen the amount they take to the landfill. If they don’t and enough people ask about it, it could result in them changing their approach.

Are They Bonded and Insured?

As mentioned before, hiring someone off the street could be a bad idea if something goes wrong. With a company that is bonded and fully insured, you don’t have to worry about a problem becoming an expensive bill. Granted chances are nothing will go wrong, but why take a chance with an uninsured company.

What Type of Reviews Do They Have

This might be one of the main deciding factors. Today you can find reviews at several places about a junk removal company. Their Google local listing is the first place. You can see the reviews left not just on Google, but also on other third-party sites. Take a few minutes to read some of them. Do they talk about the company being on time or providing an accurate quote? Were they courteous and professional?

Other sites to check for reviews are AngiesList, Home Advisor, Yelp, and Facebook.

Will They Be Able to Take All Your Junk

One thing when you speak to a junk hauler is to let them know what you have to be hauled. You don’t want them to show up and find they can’t take some of your items because they’re prohibited from doing so. There are things almost any junk removal company can’t haul, such as commercial waste or asbestos. For things like those, you might have to look for other options. Most likely the junk removal company can recommend a business.

Is Their Pricing Affordable

When you call, they should supply you with an estimate. Compare it to a couple other companies if necessary. Yet, as we pointed out, that shouldn’t be the only deciding factor. If they have low prices, but a lot of negative reviews, it might be better to go with the next most affordable company.

Not Disrupting Your Business

If you’re a business, you don’t want your customers or your employees to be bothered. Depending on your businesses hours you might not be able to schedule something after hours. So make sure they’re aware of this and they should be able to courteously and efficiently clear out your junk with little to no disruption.

If your home or your business has junk to be called and reside in Washington DC, northern Virginia and parts of Maryland, then call Nova Junk. If you look through our site, you’ll see we meet all the criteria for a good junk removal company.

Making a Yard Safe for Summer – Simple Steps to Protect Family & Guests

The arrival of warm weather means people will be spending more time outside. This is a good thing, but you want to make sure your backyard is a place safe for you and your family. Your yard may have hidden dangers that could injure family members or guests.  Many of these hazards might not be noticeable, but if you know what to look for you might be surprised at what you find.

You want a place that is safe for children to play in and for people to walk around on. And often you’ll find that many of the potential hazards in your yard are also eyesores.  So take some time to walk around and see if there are things you need to take care of to keep people safe.

Get Rid of the Yard Waste

When winter hit it may have buried the leaves you never got time to rake.  While Messy backyardthis might not make for an attractive yard at the moment, it’s hardly a hazard. What could be a problem, however, are the branches that fell during the winter. Or maybe it’s the stump from the tree that you cut down. Rake the leaves and bundle or stack up the branches and sticks off to the side.

Do you have a lot of old wood piled along the house? Perhaps from the remodeling project you did during the winter months. If you have a fire pit and intend to use it, then that’s fine. If not, then this could be a place for small animals to nest. You don’t want it to become a housing facility for mice or other small rodents. Animals that can pass on disease or even bite.

Hot Tubs and Swing Sets

That hot tub you used to use so much is now just filled with stagnant water and doesn’t work. If it is filled with water you want to make sure you first empty it out as this alone could pose a risk to a young child with a curious mind. Yet, evenRemoving old swings sets in Northern Virginia if its water free, it could be a potential hazard. If the plan is to eventually repair it, then put a strong cover over it to keep people from getting inside. If It’s no longer unusable, then have it hauled away.

If this is your family home and the place where you children grew up, your swing set may have sentimental value. Unfortunately, that swing set they used for so long is now rusted and the swings are cracked and broken. Like the hot tub, you can either repair the swings and maybe apply some paint to the poles, or simply get rid of it before someone gets cut or falls.

Check the Deck and Fencing.

Little hands can get caught in broken fencing. An adult could wrench their leg when they step on a deck plank that has weakened during the winter and now breaks.  Look over the deck and look for any broken or weakened planking or rails. Replacing these shouldn’t take that long to do. As for the fencing, repairing it that shouldn’t be that time consuming. If It’s a big job, then it might just be time for a whole new fence.

Your Grills a Fire Hazard

Even with a cover, your grill would be exposed to moisture during the winter. Part of it could have become rusted and now when you light it up fire comes out of places that it shouldn’t. In addition to being a fire hazard, your grill might not properly heat your food anymore.  You can often find replacement parts at the local home improvement store or maybe order some online. If it’s too bad, then consider buying a new grill, especially if you use it a lot.

What about the Garage

While the garage might not be noticeable from the outside, it’s often a heavy traffic area in the summer. Taking the lawnmower in and out. Kids, and adults, grabbing their bikes for a ride.  Make sure that tools are properly hung and out of the way. If the garage has become a place where old appliances or other junk have been stored, then consider getting rid of it. You’ll have more room to get about in and more storage space for your belongings.

Also consider moving chemicals such as paints, oil, and especially any pesticides up to a higher area. Hopefully you have a shelf you can put these on, but if not buy a cheap one and screw it to the wall.

Getting Rid of the Junk

The problem with many of the things in your yard is that you can’t just bag them up and haul them to the curb. The city isn’t going to pick up your old swing set like they do your old Christmas tree. The same with the old hot tub.

You can load up a pickup truck, but with many of the bigger items you’ll have to break them down. Then you might also have to deal with rust that could get all of your truck. Or the metal could scratch the bed.

The best option is to hire professionals who have the trucks, the tools and the time to haul away your junk. You don’t have to break down any of the items you need hauled away and you don’t even have to do any heavy lifting.

At Nova Junk we’ve hauled all manner of items from people’s homes, from swing sets to grills to old lawnmowers. If your located in Washington DC, Northern Virginia, or Prince George or Montgomery County in Maryland, then contact us. We’ll show up at the time you schedule and haul everything away.  Call us at (877) 211-6682 to schedule a pickup.

Your backyard can be your place to escape to on the weekends, while the front yard is part of the first impression your home makes. Getting rid of all these items not just makes your yard safer, but your home look nicer.

First Impressions Matter – Why Your Business Needs to Do Spring Cleaning

Just as spring cleaning is a ritual throughout the United states, it also needs to become a routine for your business. Whether you’re an office space, a storefront, a factory, or a tourist destination, now is the time to clean out where you work.

First Impressions Matter

Unless you work in an environment where customers don’t come in, how the place looks can impact how they think of your business.  Whether they’re consumers or representatives from other businesses you don’t want them to get the wrong idea about your business. That your disorganized or that its dirty or that it’s overcrowded.

At the office potential clients might be put off if they see old computers stacked in the corner or boxes of old documents sitting against a wall. They might wonder if their information is going to be kept secure if they work with you.Get ride of office junk

Tourists Are Coming

The onset of warm weather means tourist season is just around the corner. If this is your market you know that a dirty setting can make more than just a bad impression on a guest. It can cause them to leave a bad review online that other potential guests or visitors might see for years to come.

Productivity could be an issue

If employees have to constantly move things just to make a copy or work around things in the factory, it can slow them down.  If you’ve expanded your work force and need a place for them to work, then you really need to clean out an area for them. Why put things in their way that can slow them down.

Safety could be a concern

The factory floor can be a busy place and having items around that do nothing but take up space can make the work environment smaller. Why put impediments that don’t need to belong there in their way.

Even in an office space, piled up boxes could potentially fall down on someone or cause them to trip.

Getting Down to the Business of Cleaning

The first thing to do is to determine when you can get the work done. It’s not like at home when you can take some time on the weekend to get things done. Some of the work you can get done during the work day when you have some down time. Yet, if you have a lot of cleaning to do that might only make a small dent in the project. You might have to schedule something during the off hours so if you do, you want to get as much done as possible in the shortest amount of time.

How To Get Rid of Junk In Your Workspace

You can’t just bag up everything and take it to the curb or schedule a special pickup with the city. So do you have employees use company vehicles to haul the junk or worse, their own cars. And can they get the junk hauled in one trip or in a series of trips?

Then when they arrive at the landfill they may have to spend even more time as they separate things out like computers, laptops and printers.

If you’re business is located in Washington DC, then you don’t even have a landfill to take your junk to.

You also don’t want to want to risk an employee injuring themselves as they haul out old desks or a broken refrigerator. And you don’t want to accidently damage a vehicle, whether it’s company vehicle or an employee’s car.

This is why bringing in professionals to help will make things much easier. A junk removal company can do all the heavy lifting and take everything away. They can also do it at a time you schedule that’s convenient for your employees and your customers.

Prepare for the junk to be removed.

Try to find an out of the way spot where you pile things you know can be hauled away. Designate it for employees so they know to add things there. Ideally you want a place in the workspace out of the way where you stack some of the items. You may find it easier to have a few locations so you don’t have items falling over as

Another good idea is to begin making a list of items so that on the day you have the junk hauled you can check them off so nothing is forgotten and so everything doesn’t have to be in one spot.

Get Rid of As Much Junk As You Can in Your Business

Since you a truck coming, why not get rid of as much as you can.

Here are some items to consider getting rid of

  • Broken computers, printers, and other
  • Broken chairs and furniture
  • Old office paper (Shred any private documents in advance of your pickup)
  • Broken appliances such as microwave or refrigerators
  • Broken pallets
  • Old shipping containers
  • Overstock items or damaged goods that you can’t sell

A professional junk removal company can take care of your problem in a timely manner. Whether you’re a small office space or a large factory they are often equipped to take care of your junk quickly and efficiently. Simply point out to them all that you need hauled away and they can do the heavy lifting. Since they have the trucks and the manpower the size of the project might not be an issue.

Once the Junk Is Gone

Once you’ve cleared out the junk, then begin sweeping and wiping down work surfaces.  Remember you’re trying to make a good first impressions so if everything looks clean it will tell your prospects a lot about you. And maybe get you a good review.

Now the work is done your work space can seem much larger and hopefully be a more productive environment.

If your business is located in Washington DC, Northern Virginia, or Prince George or Montgomery County in Maryland, then contact Nova Junk. We’ll show up at the time you schedule and haul everything away.  Call us at (877) 211-6682 to schedule a pickup when it’s convenient for you and your employees.

Here are some benefits to having a junk removal company assist:

Get Rid of the Debris From the Room – If your tearing up the room your remodeling this likely means rolls of old carpet, maybe some dry wall, broken fixtures, and furniture that won’t work anymore in the new room.  If it’s a lot of material, then you might want a junk removal company to come immediately. If not, and you’re going to be adding to it, then haul it outside where it can be picked up later.

Get Rid of Clutter in Other Rooms to Make Way for Furniture – Most likely not all the furniture in the room being remodeled will be disposed of. So you’ll need to put them in other rooms. These rooms could then be cluttered. Take a look around the room and see if there are any items in these rooms you no longer use.  Why not add them to your pile of junk so everyone isn’t inconvenienced by all the furniture in the other rooms.

A Dumpster Rental Might Not Be An Option – Renting a dumpster can be convenient in some cases, particularly if it’s a large time consuming job. Yet, you have to have a place to put the dumpster and it can be an eyesore. And if you’re job isn’t that large, then it’s easier to simply pile it up outside and have professionals carry it away.

The Potential Risks of Junk Around Your Home.

It’s a scene made popular in many movies and TV shows. Homeowners have a closet that is so full of stuff that every time someone opens it, that person is engulfed by all the items that fall out. While this can be a funny moment, even in real life, there are risks to people when junk has begun to overwhelm a house. It doesn’t mean that person is a hoarder, but even a small amount of junk can create risks.Junk Removal Messy Home

Look around your home and decide if some of these items you no longer use are not just in the way, but potential health risks. Here are some common issues we’ve come across.

Obstacle Courses Around the Home.

If you’re like many homeowners, it’s easy once something breaks down or is no longer used to either haul it to the attic, take it downstairs or haul it out into the garage. This is fine if you have just a few things, but over time these items can build up. Then when you need something from the attic, such as your Christmas decorations, you have to work through all this junk to get to them. It doesn’t take much for someone to trip over these items and end up celebrating the holidays with a twisted ankle or bruised knees or possibly something worse.

Old appliances have their own risks. Most people know the dangers of having an old refrigerator around, particularly when young children are present. But what about that appliance with the frayed cord. What if someone isn’t aware of this and plugs it in.

Over time a homeowner may have painted a number of their rooms over the years and all these paint cans have accumulated. While it makes sense to keep the current color of paint for a room, the paint that isn’t used anymore should be properly disposed. Same for any chemicals around the house. Don’t just toss them into the trash can or set them out thinking the trash man will pick them up. You need to know what your city requires for old paint and chemicals to be properly disposed of.

Cleaning up the Yard

Is there an old swing set that no longer is used, but has become rusted and broken down? It only takes once for someone to scratch themselves on rusted metal for them to get an infected cut. Or that old hot tub that now lies neglected and full of rain water. This could be a health hazard in a number of ways. Like a broken swing set, a metal shed that barely stands could either fall on someone or cut them. Old grills, broken lawn chairs, and rusted bikes can also be potential hazards.

Another problem with simply piling up the junk outside is that it can become home for rodents. They’re looking for places in which to take shelter. Then when someone goes near the junk, the animal can become defensive and attack.

Get Rid of Your Junk All At Once And Avoid Back Pain

Now that you understand the risks of your junk, it’s time to do something about it. You can haul it out to the curb and schedule a time with the sanitation department to have it removed. Or you load up a vehicle and haul it yourself, although this can take several trucks and leave your vehicle looking dirty. And be careful that you don’t hurt your back as you carry the heavy items. The easiest way is to have a junk removal company come and haul it away at your convenience. You don’t even have to haul it out to the curb, but simply point out where it is and they can do all the heavy lifting.

Take Spring Cleaning To the Next Level With Junk Removal

Most people talk about doing spring cleaning and in your case, you might be following through with it. If you’ve begun cleaning about the house, now might be the time to take your spring cleaning to a whole new level. Instead of cleaning those items that you no longer use, why not eliminate those items and have less items to clean and more room for you and your family.

As you’re going through the rooms, think about whether that item is still of use. If Spring Cleaning and Junk Removalit’s not, don’t spend time cleaning it. Put it aside. In the past you might have done this and then hauled the item to the garage or the basement or perhaps the attic. Over the years these areas could have filled up, all with things that you no longer have any need for.

Don’t just clean up the home, but retake the yard as well. Are there branches lying about or an old grill that is more rust then metal. One of the advantages of using a junk removal service is that they can haul away nearly everything at once. And you don’t have to haul everything to the curb as you would for the city to pick up. You can just point out the items you want and the workers can take care of the rest.

Help Out Others While You Get Your Home Clean

Another advantage of using a junk removal company is that most often they don’t just haul away items to the dump. They look through the items for anything that could be of value for others. For example, Nova Junk has a number of charities we work with regularly and which we take clothing, furniture, appliances that they then give to people who desperately need them.

If you’ve just experienced a long winter and now getting the home clean and aired out, spring cleaning can be a way to brighten your home. And by getting away items that home now seems roomier.

The reason spring is such a good time for cleaning is that you’re not yet busy with activities outside. And you’re putting away shovels, snow blowers, and winter clothing. So now with the added room these items won’t be in the way as you go about your summer. And your yard looks like the perfect place to entertain people in.

And next spring, when you’re doing your annual spring cleaning, you’ll find it will be a much easier task now that you have less items to clean around.

If you’re cleaning a home in Washington DC, northern Virginia, or parts of Maryland, then call Nova Junk. You can schedule a time that is convenient for your cleaning schedule and we’ll take all your items away.

Why Realtors Need a Junk Removal Company For Foreclosed Properties.

Taking over a foreclosed property can be a headache. Your stuck with a home that people owed money on and which is likely to cost your bank or your agency money each day until it’s sold. The problem is that the property won’t get sold looking like it does. For a Realtor that means extra work is needed on their end to get a property ready to show.ForeclosureProperty

Some Realtors or companies will attempt to sell a house as is, meaning it’s responsibility of the new owners to clean it out. Let’s face the facts, though. That property isn’t going to get nearly as good a price if it had first been cleaned out.

This is why have a junk removal company to assist with a foreclosed home. They can come in and clean out the home, hauling everything away that won’t benefit a new homeowner. If some of the furniture left is still in good question, it can be left in the home or property and add to its value. Anything that is junk, however, can be hauled away leaving behind a property that can now be lived in or a business which can now be used by a new company.

Another benefit of a junk removal company is their efficiency. While you and a team of volunteers can come in and start hauling things away on your own, it’s likely to take a while. And this is time you could spend doing other activities such as listing the home for sale and preparing for the open house. With a team of experienced haulers and most likely a number of vehicles, a junk removal company can empty the property in a fraction of the time.

There is some waste not all junk removal can take care of, because of the risk involved. Yet, they often know what agencies to call for such waste or which businesses can safely haul it away.

They can also clear the property of yard waste, old swing sets, broken tree branches, and even a broken hot tub.

As all Realtors know curb appeal is crucial to getting a home sold and sold fast.

Some Will Benefit from A Foreclose Property.

There is little good involved with a foreclosed property. Someone has either lost their home or their business. And you’re left with the anxiety of trying to unload it quickly. Yet, some good can come out of it. Most junk removal companies look to find benefit in the junk they haul. Any material that can be recycled is set aside. This leave left to take to the landfill.Junk Removal For Foreclosed Property

More importantly, any usable items can find their way to people that need them. Many junk removal companies look through any junk they haul for items that could still have value for some people. They then donate them to charities in their area.

If you’re a Realtor in Washington DC or Northern Virginia and need help with foreclosed property, then contact Nova Junk Removal. We’re a locally owned company with a team of fully trained staff and a number of trucks at our disposal. We can clean your property out quickly so you can get it on the market fast and get the most value for it.

Getting Ready to Sell A Home? Clean out the Clutter First

Selling a home is a big undertaking and can often result in JunkRemovalForRealtorsa lot of stress. You want to get the best price for your home even while you’re still living in it. You’ve fixed it up and touched up the walls, but with your home full of your belongings it can seem crowded, or worse, look less appealing.

You want to make your home look more spacious and also have more curb appeal. Both of these objectives come from having your home free of clutter. That comes about through getting rid of all your junk.

If you’ve been living in your home for a while, you’ve likely accumulated a lot of junk along the way. When something broke down it was often easiest to store it in the attic or the basement. Yet, now that people will be coming into your home to look around you don’t want these things making your home look crowded.

Start looking through everything and pull out anything that is broken or no longer used such as the kid’s old toys. Take a look at everything and see if it’s something you’ll actually use in the future.

Don’t forget to clear out the yard. A swing set can be a selling point for families looking for home, but not if it’s broken down. Have that hauled away as well as that shed that is broken down and unusable. Clear up the yard of leaves, broken branches, and broken down lawnmower.

When going through your unused items don’t forget to look for clothing that doesn’t fit or isn’t in style anymore. Not only will this make the house seem roomier, it means less to pack up when the house is sold. The same for any furniture that might still be usable, but no longer need021ed. One advantage to using a junk removal company is that they often sort through the items being hauled to find anything that can be donated to local charities. They’ll also recycle as much as they can so that only the unusable items go to the junk yard.

So get everything together and set is aside. Then call a junk hauling company such as ours to clear it all away. Now your home has more room and looks more presentable. And when it is sold, you’ll have a little less to put in the U-Haul.

I am very happy with the services provided. I think there was a little mix up about the date scheduled. I had thought the woman I spoke with said Thursday but the team came on Monday, it was not an issue for me but I can imagine it might be for someone else. The team was very polite, friendly, and really fast. I did not catch their names but they were awesome (Thanks guys!). I was also surprised at how well they were able to pack everything in the truck. I was expecting to end up with 3/4 of a truck but it was only a half. My husband was quite happy that the bill was lower than we planned. Given that currently we have to social distance the team took great care with that and wore masks. While I hope I don't end up with a garage full of junk again, they will be my first call if I need something hauled away. I think they offer amazing value for the service and the team was awesome. All in all I am happy customer, the price was fair and the junk I needed removed is gone.

The dispatcher was friendly and booked me quickly, she informed me of everything that would transpire and it did. The guys called saying when they would arrive and they did, they were precise, skilled and professional. The price was the best compared to companies I used before but their customer service will make me use their company again.

Loved Nova Junk! I reached out to them fairly last minute (a few days before) and hey were so responsive and so flexible with my schedule. They gave about a 30 minute heads up before arrival and were in and out to haul 5 pieces of furniture in about 10-15 minutes. Definitely recommend!

Excellent company! If you're in need to removing items that no longer serve you, this is the one you want to help with that process. Professional, responsive, quick, kind and all around A+ service. I definitely use their services again.

This is the second time I've used NOVA Junk. They are always professional, precise and punctual. They make life easy and help clean things up in a huge way. The prices are very reasonable as compared to their counterpart. Thanks for working hard for the rest of us!

I'm really pleased with Nova Junk. They responded very quickly to my online request for a quote. I sent them a few pictures of the rubble that I needed to be cleared from my yard as well as an approximate measure of the volume and they gave me a quote within minutes. Two days later, early on a Saturday, they were there to take all the rubble. They were courteous, punctual, they called me 30 minutes before arriving, and they got the job done quickly and completely.

They were easy to work with prior to and during the demolition project. Norman was very patient prior to the project as we were obtaining the demo permit and project approval. He provided a reasonable quote and was overall very accommodating. The demo team arrived early and were very communicative in explaining the overall process. They cleaned up all of the debris from the demo and more so that you would never know that a structure had existed there. I would definitely use them again for any future demo work.

I called pretty much at the last minute and explained to Norm that I had new furniture arriving and needed to dispose of the old. We had a hard time getting the sofa into that room so I wasn't surprised when told it needed to be cut up for removal. They were very professional and polite. I was pleased and will call again when I redo another room.

They were very easy to schedule and work with. Quick to respond. Quick pickup. Very friendly and accommodating. And reasonable rates. They even said they would donate one of my items that was in really good condition. Will definitely use them again. I used their services to clean out a storage unit and they came straight there and cleared out the unit for me. Professional, quick, easy, friendly service. Thank you!

I have used Nova Junk several times for my home and my in-law's home. What I love the most about this company is that they are will to take your items and determine what can be donated (vs. just taking it to the dump). They removed a very heavy (solid wood) bed and tile from a recent remodeling. They are extremely careful and professional when removing items from your home. I highly recommend them. As a designer, I frequently recommend them to clients who need furniture removal services.

Recieved a prompt response following my inquiry. Was able to send a crew and truck to my home the very next morning if I wanted it. The crew was courteous, professional and got the job done with no issues. They was able to beat out a competitors quote with no issue. Highly recommend. I will go this direction the next time I need this type service.

Great experience! In one phone call I was able to get an estimate and schedule a pickup. Their pricing structure is based on how much of a truck you filled up, so you can control the cost. Omar and his team were polite and professional and did a great job!

Needed to get rid of a 3br rowhouse filled with miscellaneous junk and old furniture after I rented it out as a group house for the past 6 years. Nova junk came by and were able to quickly and efficiently clear out my whole house while carefully leaving behind all the items I had asked them to leave. A great service, and my understanding is they donate and recycle everything they can. All for a very reasonable price. Highly recommended.

After my couch and armchair donation was declined by the Salvation Army, I had to quickly move them out of my stairwell. Thankfully, Nova Junk was able to fit me into their pickup route the same day. Oscar and Jose were very quick and courteous in moving the bulky items away, and the whole job was completed less than two hours after I made the initial call. I was very impressed with their service.

I needed the removal of both a queen-sized bed & a 2nd refrigerator to make room for my aging Mother's hospital bed as she comes home for hospice/end-of-life care. The three man crew was quick, friendly, and actually helped get the last portion of the bed frame dismantled. For the price...compared to about $145 MORE quoted by 1-800-SHALL-NOT-BE-NAMED ...it was a smooth job in the middle of a tumultuous day at a reasonable cost. Thank you!

I found Nova Junk removal by doing a quick search on Google. I only had a few pieces of furniture to dispose of so, I was looking for a company that had a fair and reasonable quote. I found that with Nova Junk. They gave me a window of time for arrival. Called me 45 mins in advance. They were professional. Quick and pleasant. I will definitely use again.

I've used Nova Junk twice over the past few months and love them! I literally found them online and took a chance. They are always prompt, nice, quick and very reasonable. I was clearing out my father's estate which was a very stressful time. They were one aspect I never had to worry about!

He even gave me free advice on totally unrelated water drainage issues that I have been having. Thanks again Omar.

I was very impressed with the services of Nova Junk Hauling from initial contact to completion. My inquiry was promptly responded to with a very reasonable quote on a Sunday evening, yet. The young woman I spoke with on the telephone was most pleasant and accommodating. They kindly squeezed me into a busy schedule. The two gentlemen called 30 minutes before their arrival, and arrived 100% on-time. The guys were friendly, fabulous, courteous, well spoken, professional, and very good at their job. They did everything in their power to make the move completely painless for me. They actually charged me less than I was quoted, as the load was not that large (they also accept check or credit card on the spot!) So, from initial appointment through payment, I cannot recommend Nova Junk Hauling highly enough. I have added them to my contact book, and will most happily look forward to using their services again. Thank you, Nova Junk!

Nova Junk is the best of the best! Norman and his crew are trustworthy, professional, understanding, polite and respectful. I was extremely pleased with how they immediately introduced themselves upon arrival, called before arriving, were on time, and verified which items were to be removed. The crew worked closely together as a team and were the most polite group of guys in their inter-actions with me. After the job was done, Norman called to ensure I was satisfied and that there were no issues. A scale of 1 -10, does not go high enough for this extremely professional company!

I am really pleased with my experience with NOVA Junk. I was able to get a quote through Yelp, and their quote was much better than their competitors. Scheduling was a breeze. Three men showed up, and all I had to do was point to the items I wanted removed and they did all the hard work. They worked quickly and took care to not damage the walls or floors while they worked. I was given a final quote once everything was in the truck and it turned out to be less than I was initially quoted, so that was the cherry on the top of a great experience! I will definitely use NOVA Junk again in the future if we ever need furniture removed.

Nova Junk provide excellent service, hauling away a condo full of furniture that I needed to get rid of. I really like the way they do business -- recycling whatever they can, paying workers comp, etc. I thought their price was quite competitive and fair. Omar is a true professional, and he and his team (Rolland, Basharty, etc.) were on time, worked quickly but carefully, and just did a great job. I am happy to tell others about them.

I found NOVA Junk on Yelp and spoke with the owner, Norman, to set up some time for his team to come get some old furniture and misc junk I wanted removed. Miguel & Omar showed up on the earlier part of the window which was given to me and were in and out in less than 30 minutes. They were very respectful of my home and checked in with me before and after to make sure everything was done how I needed it. I would definitely recommend them!

Service was good overall. Nova Junk removal service was on time, quick, and professional. The reason it is not 5 out of 5 stars is that the website states that they “professionally dispose of all types of waste.” However, I needed to have some old unused paint hauled away and was told by the crew when they arrived that they couldn’t accept it.

The company responded to our request promptly and scheduled a pickup in a very short time. The pickup crew came and the three young people are all very friendly and finished the job in a short time and cleaned up the spot we piled up the junky items we had even though we told them we could do it by ourselves. These are very professional people and trust worth. We will definitely use this company again in the future.

I asked for several estimates to get rid of some furniture in my home. Nova junk was almost the lowest price, but with the highest recommendations from reviewers. I must add my vote to this high score. The crew came on time, called before coming to alert me of their arrival time, were polite and careful in everything that they did. I will definitely use them in the future!

We required an old 1950's era shed and junked-interior cleared from our property. Norm was quick to respond to our inquiry and offered a fair quote. Him and his crew showed up right on time and cleared everything in under 2 hours. They left the work area clear of debris and called after to confirm the work was completed and back gate closed. I would recommend Nova Junk and certainly use their services again.
