Opportunity in Trash Removal Business

Opportunity in Trash Removal Business

You own a pickup truck or van. You’re often the one friends and family call on when they need things hauled, whether it’s that new recliner or soccer equipment for the big game. You’d love if there was a way you could turn your pickup or van into a money maker. It sure would be nice to be your own boss. And you know what, it’d be nice to make some good money for a change. Is that possible? It sure is by starting your own trash removal business.

Trash removal businesses do just that. They haul away debris, junk or other unwanted items for other people. Many people have large items or a large amount of junk they simply can’t haul away themselves, and their local garbage company won’t take it either. That’s where junk-hauling businesses come in and do it for them. It’s a much-needed service for any community. Not only does it ease stress on people, but it helps clean up junk and debris.

So, as a junk hauler, how much can you expect to make? Haul-away businesses typically make more money if they are located on the East or West coasts than if they are in the Midwest, South, or in rural areas. After deducting dump fees, vehicle maintenance and fuel costs, the national average is $53 an hour. If you work an eight-hour day you could make $424. Wow! And all just by hauling away other people’s trash.

Often you can turn the junk you haul away into more money. Many times you’ll be asked to haul away something (or several things) that can be resold for more money. Perhaps you can sell it on eBay, Craigslist, or at a garage sale. Sometimes you’ll find items that can be recycled for cash. You’d be surprised just what you’ll get.

Best of all, there is no formal training required. You won’t need to study for any tests or buy a 9-DVD box set to learn how to do it. You simply haul away unwanted items and make good money doing it!

Because you already have a pickup or van, your expenses shouldn’t be outrageous. You’ll also need a computer and cell phone. There’s a good chance you already have those. After this, there are some additional items and insurance you’ll want to look into, but it shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg either.

Finally there is a way to turn your pickup or van into a profitable new career. It’s a career where you’re the boss and can make some good money. Before long, you’ll be able to turn trash into cash by starting your own haul-away business. To learn more, read Haul It Away.
