Trash Into Cash With a Junk Hauling Business

You’d like to make some extra money, but you’d also like something with some freedom and flexibility. You’d like to stick to Saturdays only. You’d also like to be your own boss. Do you have a truck or van? Great! Well then you should consider starting your own haul-away business.


A haul-away business does just that—they haul away junk and other unwanted items. It’s often items and debris the local garbage company won’t take, whether it’s too large in quantity or too vast in size. It’s a much-needed service for any community, and it’s likely that everyone will need to use it a few times in their life, if not on a regular basis.


So what kind of work do you have to do as a junk hauler? First, you take your truck or van to a pickup site, often a customer’s home or other place, such as a construction site. Next, you load the items into your truck or van. Occasionally you might have to do some additional cleanup, but don’t worry, you’ll get paid for this too. Next, you haul the items away to a landfill or the recycler. Unload the items and you’re done. That’s it! Oh and did we mention you make good money too?


So what kind of money? The amount of money you can make with your junk-hauling service varies based on what part of the country you live in. Those on the East or West coasts typically make more than those in the South, Midwest, or in rural areas. So, after deducting dump fees, vehicle maintenance and fuel costs, the national average comes to $53 an hour. Work an eight-hour day and you’ve just made $424.


But what if you can only work Saturdays? That’s fine! You can work as little or as much as you’d like. You don’t have to work during the week either. You’ll be able to find a lot of work working on Saturdays. You’re your own boss.


In addition to the money you make from picking up the items, you can make additional money by reselling or recycling them. You’d be surprised at just how often you’ll pick up an item that can actually be resold. Make sure to bring some moving blankets in case if you’re hauling fragile items. So where can you resell the items? There are many ways, such as a garage sale or through online at web sites, including Craigslist, and of course, eBay.


You can also recycle items. Many materials you haul away can be recycled for good money. Not only is it good for the environment and puts money in your pocket, but it’ll make your customers happy too. They’ll be delighted to learn their items aren’t just being dumped in a landfill, but are being recycled.


Do you want to make $424 working one Saturday a week? It’s all possible by starting your own junk-hauling business. You work as little or as much as you’d like. You’re the boss. You decide. To learn more, read Haul It Away.
