As the official 1-800-GOT-JUNK website does not offer exact pricing for their services, we looked online for some price estimates from previous clients who used them. As with the majority of haul-away services, the price is greatly affected by the amount of junk you have to haul away, your geographical location, and the type of junk you have. For instance, a few pieces of furniture would cost less than a large refrigerator.
Taking into consideration all of these factors, we discovered that the firm tends to charge a minimum fee of almost $145, regardless of how much junk you have, with prices as high as more than $930 to load up the whole truck. The price offer you receive on the work will be the all-inclusive cost, without any hidden costs, to haul away any type of junk you have at the work site.
