The 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Story

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with 1-800-Got-Junk?

In 1989, university student Brian Scudamore encountered a tight summer job market in
Vancouver, Canada.  So, he bought a used pickup and started "The Rubbish Boys", a junk removal service with the slogan "We'll Stash Your Trash in a Flash!" After three increasingly successful summers, Brian knew it was time to take his business to the next level.

He changed the name to 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, invested in more trucks, hired student drivers, and set out to make his company and its phone number a household name. Since 1997, the company has enjoyed exponential growth and widespread recognition for its business achievements, growing from a presence in one city to over 300 locations across four countries.
