Unexpected home repairs can bring unexpected junk! An innocent request for the handyman to inspect a leaking laundry tub turned into needing assistance to remove the remnants. The remnant was a concrete laundry tub now marooned in the basement.
Heavy! The laundry tub was all concrete reinforced with steel with an estimated weight of over 300 pounds. This was the original laundry tub with a 1950’s house and we jokingly wondered if they built the basement around this big boy of a laundry tub. Now what? I recalled seeing the ads for 1-800-Got-Junk? and surfed over to their website to see what services were offered.
Best Junk Removal Service
After reviewing the 1-800-Got-Junk? website I then did a quick check of their availability with the easy to use online scheduler. I also investigated their local competitors including a budget moving service which said a crew of four would be needed and that was neither plausible nor cost efficient. I decided to call 1-800-Got-Junk? to investigate further if the laundry tub was in their wheelhouse for junk removal and hauling.

After describing the laundry tub to the customer service representative and receiving a cost estimate I was informed the crew would need to look over the item when they arrived to confirm whether it could be removed due to the weight. I made an appointment for 1.5 days later with no problem. Of course I wanted to also take the opportunity to rid the house of those pesky items too big for the trash or too heavy to move that tend to accumulate over time.
I was given a two hour window for arrival when making the appointment which I greatly appreciated versus the (ahem) cable company who gives a four hour window. The crew called as promised when in route. Upon arrival we toured the junk to be removed and it was decided that the tub could be removed if they could break it apart with a sledgehammer. Permission granted!
I’d have loved to take the tub and make it into an outside planter, but just not reasonable at this time (and immovable!). It is such a pleasure when a company delivers what is promised. The experience was hassle free, easy to book, the crew was early, removal of items went flawlessly and we said a happy farewell to the junk. Mission accomplished and thank you to our local 1-800-Got-Junk? team for their efficient service.
