- Why can’t you give me an exact price over the phone?
Our quotes are based on the amount and type of rubbish being removed. Until we see what is to be removed, we can’t give you an exact price. Once at the premises but before starting work, our team will review the items to be removed and provide you with a no obligation free estimate of how much the job will cost. Alternatively you could email us a picture of the rubbish and/or items so we can give you a more accurate estimate.
- Why do you charge?
Our team loads your junk into the van, clears up and takes it for sorting. We sort items for recycling, reuse or tipping.
