The Junkluggers Takes ‘Green’ Approach to Cleaning Out Nation’s Clutter
American homes are overflowing with junk and many people don’t have a truck and don’t have the time to haul it away. The service has become so popular that some national companies like The Junkluggers are making it big in the junk removal business.
With 11 locations operating nearly 50 territories in seven states, The Junkluggers is looking for franchise partners to help bring the company’s eco-friendly junk removal services to even more markets across the country. Company plans call for opening eight new locations by the end of 2016 and adding as many as 10-15 new locations annually starting in 2017.
“Almost everyone has to tackle junk removal at some point in their lives, but few have the time or energy to tackle larger projects on their own,” said founder Josh Cohen. “That’s where we come in.”
Founded in 2004 and franchising since 2013, The Junkluggers provides an environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional junk removal, donating, recycling and repurposing on average 70% of the items they remove to local charities and recycling centers and keeping tons of junk from landfills each year. Aside from select hazardous materials, Junkluggers can lug away just about anything, from furniture and appliances to electronics and concrete, among other items.
