Junk Removal Company

In 1989, college student Brian Scudamore encountered a tight summer job market in his hometown of Vancouver, Canada. So, after seeing an old, junk-hauling truck rumbling along a McDonald’s drive-thru, he was inspired to start his own business. He named his junk removal service “The Rubbish Boys” and used the slogan: “We’ll Stash Your Trash in a Flash!” What began as a means to pay for college quickly turned into a unique business - a franchise of professional junk removal.

Brian changed the company name to 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, invested in more trucks, hired great people, and set a goal to build a brand that would become a household name. Since 1998, the company has grown to approximately 200 locations across three countries.

Actual Customer Reviews(Typos and all:)

"This is our second time the first I believe was about 4 years ago. I have to say both times they were prompt and efficient in their estimate and their work. I believe it only took about an hour to pack the junk in the truck and the recycle truck. I myself think it would have taken us personally probably a half day to get all the work done. When the job was done, the area that held the junk was clean and tidy nothing there. Not one little speck they cleaned it right up. Thank you."
