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

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.

Cleaning Up After A Storm – What To Do To Make It Easier, Safer

When a storm passes through, it can leave devastating results to your home and property. Your first thought is to be relieved that no one was injured, hopefully. Your next thought is likely to be, where do we begin cleaning up this mess.

Even if you have a little damage, it can still be a headache. There could be insurance agents to call, photographs to take, and belongings to replace. You might not have enough to even make a claim, but you still have debris to get rid of.

Once you’ve first assessed the damage and resolved any issues with the insurance company, then its time to get rid of everything.

Cleaning up after a storm

Here are some things you can do to get the job done quickly and efficiently, while also keeping everyone safe.

Clear Out Any Water Damaged Items

If you have water damage, then you want to get the items out of your house. The last thing you want to have happen is to start to get mold damage from the moisture.  If the items are valuable or have sentimental value do you best to clean and dry them out.  Once everything is removed make sure the room is completely dry.

Are There Any Potential Health Risks?

A chance of mold we’ve already warned about, but there could be broken glass, damaged electrical appliances

Something else to consider is how much lifting involved. If there are heavy items in the basement that are water damaged or large tree limbs in the yard. Don’t try lifting things that are too much for you to carry or which you could twist you back as you haul it up. If necessary, leaves these items until you have more help, or better yet, can have professionals do the heavy lifting.

Broken branches, a damaged swing set, or maybe a shed that was damaged by a storm could be something someone can easily get cut on or trip over. Especially with swing sets and sheds, decide if you can repair them or if they’re too damaged to use safely anymore.

Time Might Be a Factor

Letting wet things lie around the house have the potential for mold, but simply hauling everything outside and piling it along the house isn’t something to do long term. It could quickly become a home for small creatures.  You don’t want a family of mice suddenly becoming tenants alongside your home. This is why you want to get things hauled away as soon as you can.

Damage to A Business

It’s not just homes that are singled out in a storm. Perhaps it’s your business.

Professionals cleaning up after a storm

Then its not just your employees who could be at risk or simply inconvenienced, but your customers, as well. You don’t want customers coming in and finding a mess in your place or see a lot of junk piled alongside the building. The incentive to have everything cleared up is just as strong for a business owner as a homeowner.

Getting Rid of Everything

Now that you’ve decided what needs to be hauled away, you have to decide on how to accomplish this. If it’s just a few items that you can easily bag up and set out for the city to pick up. Just be careful that everything you set out is allowed to be picked up. Wet drywall or other building materials might be prohibited by your city.

If you have a vehicle full of junk to be hauled, you could do it yourself. Just be careful that wet items or damaged items that might have sharp edges don’t damage your vehicle. You don’t want to add to your woes by having the family SUV damaged in a run to the landfill. And make sure that everything you have packed up to haul will be accepted at the landfill. If you have questions, call their office and explain to them what you have.

Here’s Where Professionals Can Help

You might have already started calling contractors to take care of any damage to

your property, but before they even begin working, call a junk removal company. They can take of everything from the items damaged in the house, to any debris in the yard. There is no items to bag and you don’t even have to do the lifting. Just let the haulers know where items are, and they can take it from there.

Many insurance companies cover the removal of the debris. Even if your insurance carrier doesn’t cover it, the savings in time might be worth it. Not just the time in cleaning up but also in hauling it away to your local landfill. If your community even has a landfill open to the public. Some cities like Washington DC, don’t.

The other advantage to get professionals is that they can also take care of the junk you’ve been accumulating over the years. There might be items in your basement that weren’t damaged by water, but which have been taking up space for years. Or maybe those old appliances you have tucked away in the attic can finally be gotten rid of. As with the other stuff just lead the haulers to the spot and let them do the lifting.

Damage from a storm, whether its water in a room or damage to the exterior, can be disheartening, but it doesn’t have to become a long term problem.  The sooner you can take care of it, the sooner you can get back to your family or if you’re a business, to your customer.

If you’re home, or your business, has been through a storm and you need to clean up the mess, then contact Nova Junk Removal to help. We serve Washington DC, northern Virginia, and parts of Maryland. When you call us at 571-432-8162, we’ll schedule a time that is convenient for you to pick up your debris and any other junk you need hauled.

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.

Why Real Estate Agents Need a Junk Removal Service To Sell Homes

For a Realtor selling a home quickly and at the price a home seller has set is their top priority. To achieve this goal having a junk removal company you can rely on will help the sales process and also benefit your clients in other ways.

One of the first steps before listing a home is to get it to look good. Broken furniture, piles of newspaper, and other trash must be removed. This seems

Junk Removal Services For Real Estate Agents
Junk Removal Services For Real Estate Agents

simple enough. Yet, if the homeowners are busy with their jobs, packing their belongings, and perhaps their search for a new home, they might not have time to get the trash hauled. And setting everything out to the curb might not be an option if there is a lot to haul or if there are items the city won’t haul.

Here are some reasons a junk removal company is a better option to clear out the real estate listing:

  • Quick Response Time – A junk hauling company can often be there in a day or two of being called.
  • Can Take Care of the Big Stuff – Some items such as an old freezer or a worn out couch can be hauled by the staff and not the homeowners
  • Recyclable Materials Can Be Included – Perhaps some items can be recycled. The junk removal company will separate these items on their own and make sure they don’t end up at the landfill
  • They Can Clear up the Home and Property – How the exterior of a home looks can be as important as the interior. Have leaves, branches, an old swing set, even an old hot tub.
  • They Will Be Careful in Their Work – As the items are hauled out, the last thing you want is to have walls get nicked or floors scratched, leaving more work to be done before the open house.

The idea is to get the home as nice looking as possible and that it has a lot of space. As the seller goes through things they may be more willing to get rid of items if they know they don’t have to haul it. This makes for a home that looks more spacious and increases the chance of selling. It can also help with the appraisal of the home.

It also makes things easier once the house is sold. There is less to move, now that the old and unwanted items have been disposed of.

Foreclosures and Rental Properties

In the real estate business, it isn’t just about selling homes for customers. Foreclosures and rental properties can be another big part of your work day. With both you want to get the property sold or rented as quickly as possible.  Yet, the previous tenants might have left behind a lot of furniture, debris, and junk. A junk removal company can come in and clear the property so that you can have painters and contractors get the place ready to list.

Why You Want a Junk Removal Company That You Can Trust20140807_075732

Perhaps the homeowners have a junk company they’re already familiar with.  If not, you want a junk removal that you can confidently recommend to them. That they don’t have to go online searching for someone on their own and end up with a company that doesn’t satisfy them.

Here is what you want in a junk removal company you can safely recommend to homeowners

  • The company is dependable. They arrive at the time the homeowners requested.
  • They act professional while interacting with customers.
  • They offer competitive pricing
  • That they have the capabilities to remove small items or truckloads of debris.

A remodeling project of any type can be an inconvenience at the very least and a headache at the most.

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.

Don’t Waste Time by Bagging Up Junk or Hauling it to the Curb – doing the project takes enough time. Why add to your time commitment by bagging all your junk and then hauling it to the curb for the city to pick up, at an additional cost.  Simply get it out of the way and then when a junk removal company arrives, point it out to them and they can do all the heavy lifting.

Have Other Junk Hauled Away With the Remodeling Debris – if a junk removal company is on the way, why not make sure their truck is full when they leave.  Throughout the house are old appliances you’ve hidden away, furniture that is broken, clothes that no longer fit or in style.

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!

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.

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.

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 with NOVA Junk. They were on time, polite, and charged a reasonable amount for clearing out my old dining room table. Plus they recycle at charitable organizations. I highly recommend this company.

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!

I have used this company twice and each time they have been prompt, courteous and reasonably priced. A shout-out to OMAR who recently lead a team to pick up my projection television, et. al. 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 Removal came to the rescue after College Hunks failed me. They were able to come out to me in Laurel, MD just a few hours after my request. They were very fast and professional. I highly recommend this service.

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.

Excellent service, showed up early and called in advance. Not only cleared out junk efficiently, 2 men moved furniture from my basement to my first floor without doing any damage to my home or furniture. They worked as a team and WAs reliable. I will definitely hire Nova Junk Removal 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.
