In 1989, college student Brian Scudamore encountered a tight summer job market in his hometown of Vancouver, Canada. So, after seeing an old, junk-hauling truck rumbling along a McDonald’s drive-thru, he was inspired to start his own business. He named his junk removal service “The Rubbish Boys” and used the slogan: “We’ll Stash Your Trash in a Flash!” What began as a means to pay for college quickly turned into a unique business - a franchise of professional junk removal. Brian changed the company name to 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, invested in more trucks, hired great people, and set a goal to build a brand that would become a household name. Since 1998, the company has grown to approximately 200 locations across three countries. 1-800-GOT-JUNK? makes the ordinary business of junk removal exceptional. We create space and peace of mind when junk gets in the way. Whether it’s an unwanted sofa, a pile of household junk in the garage, or a warehouse full of unused office furnishings, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? removes it for you. In keeping with our environmental goals to divert items from the landfill, wherever possible, we will donate items to charity and recycle.

Wonderful. Booked them online one day and they were here at my convenience the next day and Tanner and Calvin let me know exactly when they'd be there and they did a great job!
After setting an appointment for 10:00am to 12:00. First I was called and told that the last customer was more than anticipated and we will be there at 12:00. At 1:30 I called them to see what was going on and was told they had to empty the truck. So now at 2:00 they show up and try to quote me $10.00 more than what I was originally qouted. I told them bye-bye. I had to cancel my appointment due to their incompetence. Needless to say I am very disappointed in the service I received!

Dont believe the happy pictures of satisfied customers on this website! I just had a horrible experience with a "Got Junk" crew where the crew boss accused me of having attitude and stormed off the property. They have always been so good in the past...creative and willing to help out. This person had nothing but reasons why he could not do what I asked, and then when I said just go ahead and do what he could do, he stormed off. I feel profoundly disrespected, and as though they were not willing to do what they could.

Can you guys take old metal gas cans (with a bit of old gas still in it)? I'm moving into my dad's house (he passed away recently), and found some relics that aren't garden variety trash. :/ I already have you booked post-move.
Happy Canada Day to our Canadian customers, franchise partners, TOMs, and staff!
