Transcript of this Episode

JODI: Hello, and welcome to Triangle Home Front, where we bring you the latest in home trends right here in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina. I’m your host, Jodi Sauerbier with New Homes & Ideas magazine and today I’m here with Steve Turner of 1-800-GOT-JUNK?. We are here to share how his company can assist homeowners and new home buyers here in the Triangle area.

STEVE: We are currently on site and we’re currently moving a piece of furniture right here and part of what 1-800-GOT-JUNK? has done for 25 years is diverting and donating a lot of the stuff that would go to a landfill.

What we do here at 1-800-GOT-JUNK? is we provide them with an on-spot estimate. We’ll evaluate all of their content and charge them based on the amount of space that their items take up on our truck. Things such as labor, content, and weight never come into play with 1-800-GOT-JUNK?. Some of the things we don’t take are flammable liquids – here we’ve got some gasoline in a gasoline dispenser. We would not be able to take that, but we would direct the customer accordingly on where they can dispose of it properly. Once we’re done, we’ll providing them with an invoice showing all that we’ve removed, and we’ll also let them know exactly what they can expect in terms of what we’re able to donate and what we’re able to recycle. We’ll thank the customer at that particular point, and look forward to the next opportunity to be of service, here at 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, the world’s largest junk removal service.
