It's not often I write a testimonial for a contractor- maybe never!- but I felt it incumbent upon me to give heaps of credit where credit is due.
First, my initial email was responded to within 12 hours. Someone came out to evaluate the job within the week. The price was not only fair, it was low, compared to other contractors who had bid.
The work to be done was a potential nightmare. 17 x 10 foot mirrors that needed to be removed from a two story hallway wall. There was the possibility of shattered glass everywhere, injuries and poor clean up. None of that happened. Three nice men accomplished the job, working efficiently, with skill and smarts. Clean up was thorough.
I would use "Junk" for ANY job, given their performance on this one. Dear Junk bosses- give those guys a bonus!!!

We decided to have a junk removal company do the house clean-out project for us. We went with Junk In My Trunk. They came and did the clean up in one day. They took everything and made sure that the house was clean before leaving. They did a pretty good job, and I was very satisfied with it.

They were very efficient and professional. I don't think I have ever been so happy with a job done!!! They needed to remove almost a truck full of sand and had to remove three steps leading up to the house. I would definitely use them again.
Caryn M. from Long Beach, NY
On time, very fast, excellent clean up.

I called around to the other franchise vendors with call centers and got their standard scripted quotes and spiel. Spoke to Claudia and Tom at the office and we got right to the point. Tom even accommodated a short move 2 miles in town. On time Mike and his crew showed up and got right to work. Job was complete, and for a GREAT PRICE! I would rate JUNK in OUR TRUNK 10 STARS!
Bill from Valley Stream
I've been in business 30 years. I use dumpsters all the time but WoW dumpsters on rubber wheels what a great idea!!! All my customers love it. The fact they don't damage driveways and they look great is what's got me to use these guys. Don't get me wrong when I build brand new house I get standard containers (from them also) but for remodel the ones on rubber wheels are a simple choice.
NYC reno. Three floor walk-up. Heavy stuff. Bingley and Abel are the dream team! Seriously, their professionalism, courteousness, amazing attitude and dedication to the job and their company was impressive. Under difficult circumstances, they never complained and they worked tirelessly to get the job done. Many people look for pricing in the reviews and I will say their pricing is VERY fair and VERY reasonable - they explain why they charge what they charge and don't try and gouge you. Posting this for job on Sept. 9, 2013 HIGHLY recommend.

Called on Wednesday, they came Friday.. worked the weekend and done Monday morning. It was critical that our recovery from the flooded area start with a total demolition and removal. And the Owner Tom was always on top of the job with Mario, the crew supervisor, doing everything to make sure I was satisfied.

GREAT SERVICE GREAT PEOPLE. CAME ON TIME WORKED FAST AND EFFICIENT. REALLY GOOD PRICE NOT LIKE OTHER COMPANIES I HAVE USED IN THE PAST. I'LL USED THEM AGAIN FOR SURE.
Great Company. Trust me when I say that I shopped around. I had a big job so wanted a best price. I had 4-5 different companies come to give me an estimate and then Junk in my Trunk came (I love the name by the way) and made my decision really easy. Not only were they the cheapest but they were very professional and right to the point. As a matter a fact I asked them to do the job right away I so they did. As far as Junk Removal I will use only one company from now on JUNK IN MY TRUNK . Keep up the good job guys.
Getting up there in age so I decided it's time to start getting rid of 40 years of accumulation. I had a few items I wanted to keep so while they cleaned out the basement they were kind enough to ask me about each piece before putting it into their truck. I appreciated the kind straight forward manner in which they approached my belongings, as if they were working in their own grandpas house. Didn't scratch one wall either! Add in the 10% senior discount and you can't go wrong. Anyone whose ready to let go of their 40 year accumulation..... Give Tom a call. He really runs a tight ship. Thank you guys....
I USE THEM ALL THE TIME. I USUALLY GET 10 AND 20 YARD DUMPSTERS. THEY ARE ALWAYS ON TIME. I LOVE THE FACT THAT YOU ONLY PAY FOR HOW MUCH YOU FILL UP THE DUMPSTER. I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW MANY TIMES I GOT A BOX FILLED IT HALF WAY AND PAID FOR FULL WITH OTHER COMPANIES. JUNK IN MY TRUNK DOES IT RIGHT! THEY CARE FOR THEIR CUSTOMERS. SOME TIMES ON SMALLER JOBS I JUST PUT THE DEBRIES ON DRIVEWAY AND TOM'S GUYS COME CLEAN UP AND TAKE IT AWAY THAT SAME DAY. CAN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT. KEEP UP THE GOOD JOB GUYS!!!
I will use their service for all of my rubbish removal needs. I called and made an appointment, they called when they were on their way and arrived when they said they would. Shortly after they arrived, they were finished!!! All of the rubbish was gone and the area where the rubbish was, was broom swept!! I called a second time, and the same thing. The workers were polite and diligent! Thank you Junk In My Trunk!!!
When I bought my 6th building in downtown Brooklyn, it was a mess!!! Full of all kinds of garbage and schmutz all over the place. Rather than schlepping it out on my own, I called Tom from your junk in my trunk. He came right down and gave me a price and timeline. He got right to work and within a day it was all gone! ( 5 flights with no elevator). Very professional. Pleasant to deal with.
Tom is a very honest business man and will give you the right price everytime! Great job , Thanks guys!
I live in Florida,we r in the process of selling a house in Brooklyn.Called Claudia,they came to the house(realtor was there)gave us a price which was fair.Did a great job of cleaning and removing a lot of junk. Very neat and pleasant.
Just had them clean out my parents old house so I could get it sold. I must say from the first call to the day of having the work done nothing but great. The price was the best around by far and the service was second to none. Thanks for all the help.
Can't say enough great words about them. Professional, efficient, responsible, fast, and honest. The best!
The best part of part of Junk in my Trunk is that you only pay for what you fill...
I have just finished major construction on my home for which I had previously hired two dumpsters @ $300 a piece, which laid fallow in my driveway for weeks! After the sheetrocking and miscellaneous other construction JUNK (which was rained on numerous times and therefor a complete mess)I stumbled across Junk in My Trunk. I was SO PLEASED AND IMPRESSED! Mario and Derrick arrived and before I knew it I had my backyard back again! They were very professional and courteous! In addition,my basement has NEVER been so clean! I immediately called my mother to praise the company and she is booking for her basement! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY and would not hesitate to use them again! Dealing with Claudia was a pleasure! THANK YOU AGAIN FOR A JOB WELL DONE!
I want to say. Thank you Tom for all your help. I would like to give a BIG shout out to the guys who came. they showed up hours B4 they were to be there, and were very professional, and conducted themselves in the same way. not to mention that the price fell within our budget. i will definitely recommend this company, and will 4sure use them again. once again thank you, great job an 2 thumbs up.
Fantastic service. Great price. Excellent service. I am planning on using them again for another project.
They came to the house and took away an old swing set. We had already cut it and had it ready for pickup. They gave us a quote for all the rubber underneath, but they would have to come back. They were EXTREMELY professional. Quick! The person answering the phone was VERY helpful and had a lot of different suggestions.
I would ABSOLUTELY use them again, and plan on doing so.

I had boxes that my dressers came in along with pallets. The delivery company wouldn't remove the packaging even though I paid for the service. I turned to Angie's List and found Junk In My Trunk. They told me what to do before their arrival, which was basically nothing. They picked up the two huge boxes and pallets as is.

Junk In My Trunk was a life saver in that I needed to totally empty about 1200 sq. ft. of living space due to Sandy and resulting flooded contents. Not only did they remove all destroyed furniture and debris, they also demolished all soaked sheet rock and insulation, total kitchen and bathroom demolished and removed all appliances, sinks and bathtub, flooring incl. tiles and carpeting and anything that was contaminated by the 4 feet of water that we had at the height of the storm. The really special part of their job was the fabulously clean condition that they left it in, both inside the premises as well as outside the house which they meticulously hosed down and left as though nothing happened. We are now able to treat the area for mold and drying out so we can move to the next task of electrical recovery. Fast and professional... Just what we needed.

I definitely and without hesitation recommend the JIMT group we used. We had a fully equipped two-bedroom apartment full of 40 years of stuff to remove in the Bronx. The landlord required the work to be done in a specified amount of time and on a specified pre-arranged day. The estimate was given professionally and in writing (unlike some of the competitors we interviewed). The crew arrived early, started work on time, finished early. They were uniformly professional, hard-working, helpful, honest (found and gave to us some cash and some jewelry we did not know about), and careful. The even swept the apartment before leaving. The final charge was exactly the amount expected.
Yippee! I am free from clutter thanks to "Junk in My Trunk." The service I received today was quick and efficient. I called other competitive services, no one beat their low price. Thanks Tom, great doing business with you and your amazing team.
I called and got the service from Junk In My Trunk. It was to remove some old junk from the house. They came on time, and I showed them where the items were located -- mainly the garage, porch, shed and basement. They handled the job with no problems. The stuff was tossed in their dumpster, and they cleaned up afterwards. The crew was very accommodating and efficient. They did a fantastic job and their service was 110% good.
They were on time. They were extremely efficent. They did the work they were hired to do with little or no down time. They left the area as clean as they possibly could. If you want demolition work performed, hire this company!
The two men arrived when expected, were pleasant, evaluated the job with professional eyes, worked steadily, removed the waste material without damage to the house, knew how to do their work --e.g. break apart old desk rather than try to carry it whole down two flights of stairs. I don't know whether I got value for my money since I don't know the market....but I am satisfied with what I paid and know their price was noticeably less than other firms quoted.
Absolutely the best thing I did was hire Junk in My Trunk! I was in a desperate situation - I needed to have the house my dad is selling cleaned out ASAP. There was some residual stuff left when the tenants moved and I needed help fast. I submitted the request online and they called me within an hour and were able to accommodate me the same day! The men were professional, fast, worked hard, and I am extremely satisfied with the job they did. I absolutely would use them again. I highly recommend them. And Claudia in the office is very friendly and professional on the phone. I am very VERY happy!
