We’re definitely not a franchise. We’re locally owned and operated. That means we can charge less that those big name franchises. We’ve been hauling junk for several years so we’re experienced as well as low-cost. We’re local and close to many SFV cities like Burbank, Van Nuys or Glendale. We depend on positive reviews from our customers because they are our neighbors and the better we do, the more we can expand our business.
Honestly, tipping for junk removal is really appreciated, but it’s not required. That said, if a local junk removal team does a great job for you, you could think about tipping 15 to 20 percent of the cost of your junk removal service.
Do you do commercial junk removal? I do construction and sometimes need a company to haul our debris.
Yes we do supply commercial junk removal services to the Los Angeles area. Just give us the details and we can supply the necessary trucks and teams to handle the job. We service most of L.A. and the San Fernando Valley.
You bet! Most junk removal professionals will offer a free no-obligation estimate. That’s true of Bumblebee Junk, too. It’s an industry standard. Taking a look at your junk on-site is the most accurate way to calculate time and effort. You can of course describe your load over the phone, but it might not be totally accurate. However, in these days of cell phone cameras, taking a photo and sending it to us is easy.
A licensed junk removal company not only is going to take the necessary steps to legally and properly dispose of your furniture, garbage, furniture, electronics or appliances but will also avoid damage to your home or office when clearing out your garage, office, house or yard. A professional junk removal company is going to have insurance to protect not only their company and workers, but their customers, too!
Do you still do junk hauling if I live in an apartment (with stairs)? Does it cost more? I’m in a 2-story building in Van Nuys.
You can get rid of large, bulky junk items like appliances, beds and mattresses or other furniture items by calling a junk removal company like Bumblebee Junk.
Couches can be large and awkward to dispose of. Sofabeds, too, are really heavy. In these cases especially it makes sense to hire a junk removal company like Bumblebee Junk to get rid of your old sofa or couch.
We charge by volume (how much space taken up in our truck). Ask any junk removal expert if their pricing is on the competitive side. If their services are too good to be true there may be a reason. Hiring the cheapest company may not always be best. This is true if you need things removed from inside your house. Some cheap crews can be inexperienced and haven’t been trained to lift and haul away heavy items properly. Professionals will take the time to avoid damaging your property. Unfortunately our junk removal industry suffers from many make-a-quick-buck companies who charge bargain basement prices but illegally dump junk on deserted roads or empty lots.
A good junk removal company knows how best to dispose of items. With Bumblebee Junk we recycle, reuse or donate as much as possible from every truckload. We’re environmentally aware and on average only 25% of the junk we haul goes into landfills. We might donate usable items from a Burbank job to Goodwill or the American Cancer Society. If we’re dealing with metal, we can recycle through our partner, TM Scrap Metals

Short answer: almost anything. It depends on what items you need hauled away. Just make sure the junk removal company can legally take it. You can find a detailed list on our website, but in general many junk removal companies don’t or can’t take hazardous waste (like chemicals, flammables, paint etc.) because transporting these things require special permits.
