We give you an approximate quote based on your description when you book your appointment, and we confirm the quote when we arrive to your home. We provide transparent pricing upfront along with amazing service, so there will be no surprises when the invoice comes.

6 How much will it cost to remove my junk?

We operate from Monday to Saturday, from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm. However, we are happy to accommodate to your schedule if you require our service outside of our business hours. Just give us a call at (604) 872-7448 and we can book a time that best suits your preference.

14 Do you make sure the area is clean before leaving?
Definitely! We wear booties (slip-ons for our shoes) to ensure we don’t get your floors or carpet dirty, and we have a very careful procedure of removing your items. We also sweep up the area when we’re done, leaving the space in a cleaner state than what it was before.
15 Do you do removals with pest or vermin infestation?
Yes, we do - and we have a very safe and secure process and ensure our teams come with proper suits and equipment. We encase all items in plastic to ensure no bugs are left behind. This type of work is considered a high-risk job and is something we specialize in.

Not necessarily. We can accommodate to your needs and convenience if you need to be somewhere else during your appointment. Simply leave your stuff outside, and we can pick it up. We will, however, need your credit card on file before we arrive. Upon arrival, we will call to confirm your quote - and with your approval we will proceed with removing your items and process your payment when we finish. A copy of your invoice and payment will be emailed to you.
17 What equipment does you truck come with?
Our professional crews bring shovels, brooms, rakes, garbage bins, other variety of tools, and a dolly. If required, we can also bring power tools, larger bins with wheels, wheelbarrows, and other demolition-specific tools.
