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


So, tonight I was laying on my couch watching some television and hanging out with my dog, when I started to think about clearing out the "dog run" on the side of my house.  I have a 6 month old boxer that I am kennel training, but I think it's about time he spent his afternoons outside.  But, only one big problem.  The side of my house is full of JUNK.  This is not all my fault (although it partly is), because a lot of it is my roommates JUNK.  Nonetheless, it is a huge burden, and in order for me to set an area up for my dog I must get rid of this junk.

Fortunately, i know a guy.  Or should I say some guys.  

But what if I didn't?  I started thinking of what I would do if I wasn't aware of 1-800-GOT-JUNK?.  I immediately decided that I would definitely have to waste a whole day going the "do it yourself" way.  Would I get a dumpster?  But how do i know what size to get?  Will the small one be too small?  Will the big one be too big?  Could I take it to the dump myself?  What... in my 2 seater benz? (okay jk. I mean my 4 door Chevy Malibu).  You get the point.

This experience really reaffirmed that what we do at 1-800-GOT-JUNK? is priceless.  It gave me a very satisfying feeling knowing that I help people conquer similar burdens on a day to day basis.  It also made me appreciate my job, and be thankful that I work for such a customer focused, integral brand.

I hate to admit it, but my basement needs a good cleanout...and I own a franchise!  I totally agree, I am too busy to waste time getting a dumpster and doing it myself.  Plus, in my development, there really isn't any place to put the dumpster.  So...if things get slow this winter I will bring a crew home to take care of the basement and my wife will be a happy woman.
