San Mateo Junk Removal

We make junk disposal cheap and easy.

San Mateo Junk Removal
Are professional junk pickups expensive?

It depends on who you work with! Here at Junk Xpress, we've worked hard to make our pickup and removal service available at the best possible value. We're so confident in our cheap pricing that we also offer a price match guarantee. We won't be beat on price by any of our San Mateo competitors. If you do spot a junk removal company with a better deal in your area, let us know and we'll happily match it.

Usually, however, our customers are astounded to find just how much they can save by working with Junk Xpress. It's not uncommon for us to beat competitors on price by a wide margin. Don't believe us? Please give us a call for an honest estimate today! We can often provide quotes over the phone or after viewing a few photos depending on what's involved in your load.

Another trick you'll encounter some competitors using is pricing low and setting high minimums. They offer fair deals for full truckloads, but force you to pay a high minimum fee if you're only in need of removal for a few key items. We stand by our low minimums that make it easy to get just the right price for disposal of a few items or many!

Will my items be rejected?

We're happy to say that it's very unlikely. We've broadened our pickup capabilities to the point that we're able to accept just about anything - even a few key items that require special disposal and are often turned away by collection events or even some junk pickup companies.

Have some large, bulky items? Scraps from construction projects? An entire office to cleanout? Junk Xpress is the team to call.

Customers often call us with questions about:

  • Mattresses
  • Box Springs
  • Old Carpeting
  • Old Hot Tubs
  • Office Fixtures & Desks
  • E-Waste (Printers, Computers, Etc.)
  • Dining Room Sets
  • Couches & Chairs
  • Construction Debris

Thankfully, we can take all of these items and many more! If you have an item that you believe is a cause for concern, please give us a call. We'll be happy to discuss it and help you determine whether it's something we can take. It's not common for customers to have items we're unable to dispose of, but of course there are unique cases here and there that make it worth verifying just in case.

Where do you serve?

From Laurelwood Park to Coyote Point Recreation Area - or in other words, anywhere with a San Mateo address! In fact, Junk Xpress is happily serving the greater Bay Area, and we're ever expanding here. If you haven't spotted one of our trucks yet, you can expect to soon.

The Ultimate Guide to San Mateo Junk Removals

We get it. You don't spend night and day thinking about junk. And if you do, you're probably thinking about how much you want to get rid of it, not how you actually get rid of it. In fact, most people assume that junk disposal is a simple if time-consuming task.

They would be partially right. Getting rid of certain kinds of junk is pretty straightforward - just head to the local recycling or donation center. For other junk, though, a much more involved process is required and some baseline education is needed to ensure you do things correctly and even legally.

In this quick, concise article, we'll explain some of the "need to knows" before taking on a junk disposal. Looking for some knowledge for a DIY? Skip down to the next headline. Not excited about the DIY route? Junk Xpress is always here for a professional option that:

  1. Does all the hauling for you - not one finger lifted on your end!
  2. Makes all the necessary stops: donation centers, recycling centers, landfills (if needed), Mattress Recycling Centers, and more.
  3. Breaks down your items for you.
  4. Does all the heavy lifting.
  5. Makes junk removal as easy as pointing at items and watching us haul them all away!

We take our customers needs seriously, and we're happy to uphold a strong rating on Yelp and other key review sites. One Bay Area customer described their experience this way:

I have never done junk disposal, and I had 30 years worth of stuff and large bulky items to get rid of before I sell my house. Vince and Blue came over on time and KILLED IT!  I mean wow - in and out and took a literal tons worth of stuff away with no problem.  Vince even noticed that I accidentally threw out my Master's Diploma and returned it to me. THANKS Junk Xpress, Vince and Blue!  GREAT JOB!  LOVING MY NEW PEACE OF MIND FREE OF JUNK!

Where Your Junk Ends Up

Most people are happy to see unneeded items in good shape go to someone who will put them to good use. For that reason, we put a priority on donations whenever its possible to make one. If you take on junk removal yourself, this may be a good first stop for you as well.

After the donation center, our next stops are determined by the items you've given us.

Mattresses, for instance, can only be legally disposed of at Mattress Recycling Centers. This is noted by a recent California state statute called the Used Mattress Recovery & Recycling Act.

If we don't have a mattress, we may need to stop at an e-Waste center, again depending on the items.

From there, we can visit a general recycling center. These centers are able to take a wide variety of items, making your junk disposal green even if the items are not able to be donated.

Only as a last resort will we head to a landfill. We never participate in illegal dumping, and we encourage our customers to avoid this at all costs. There's a hefty fine and possible other punishment that can come along with being caught in the act.

Taking Your Trash is Our Pleasure

Clutter is well known to cause or contribute to stress, and giving our customers the relief of finally being rid of that stress is rewarding for us. Junk removal is one of those tasks that's easily put off, but if you're reading this, you're taking the first step to having some extra sanity back!

For extra piece of mind about the process, please feel free to call us. We'll be happy to explain the process, provide a quote, or answer any other questions you may have. The phone call is the hardest part! We do lots of same day and next day junk pickups, and we'd love to add yours to our list when we're in the neighborhood.
