No matter how we look at it, junk hauling is indeed a profitable service. After all, there are too many people who are either too lazy or too busy to take care of their own junk. Sadly, since junk hauling is a profitable business, there are plenty of unprofessional companies taking advantage of this. Probably, you have seen ads on the internet like “We Will Haul Your Junk At Cheap Prices” or other ads that has the same meaning. Indeed, these ads are tempting; after all, you pay someone a few dollars and they would come right away to haul your junk. But, this isn’t a good idea!
Well, this is because those guys aren’t probably licensed. Licenses ensure that the junk removal company would properly dispose all your unwanted junk. If the company or the person has no license, it is possible that the company or person would dump your trash anywhere. And unfortunately, this happens a lot. To make matters worse, you could be responsible for the company or person’s action. This happens when legal authorities found out that all those junk were yours. This leads to paying a hefty fine.
Another reason why it isn’t a good idea to hire a company offering affordable junk hauling services out of the blue is because they might have no insurance. Believe it or not, but junk removal services are not required to be insured, however, legitimate companies would make sure that the services they have as well as their employees are insured. If the company is not insured, you won’t have any legal recourse once they damage your property. Moreover, if the hauler is injured on duty and on your property, it is possible to face legal charges. Having a lawsuit filed under your name will burden you financially.
Last but not the least, is the issue regarding reliability, trust and respect. Junk removal services that you know nothing about are not truly reliable when it comes to the crew they send in removing your junk at home. Since you are allowing someone you don’t know inside your home, there might be a danger of theft or any other possible crime. On the other hand, companies with good repute make sure that their employees are free from any criminal records. They would also send someone who would surely show respect to their clients.
In the end, saving a few dollars is not worth these possible risks.
