Running a business comes with its fair share of junk. Whether that’s in the form of garbage that needs to be taken away, papers and other recyclable materials that need to be delivered to the recycling depot, or things like old furniture, shelving, old computer hardware, and other large items. Junk is junk and it’s a pain to deal with, on top of keeping your business running smoothly. However, choosing the right commercial junk removal company for your business isn’t as simple as A-B-C.
It’s critical for your business and the environment to get rid of that junk as efficiently as possible. There are several things you need to consider before hiring a junk removal company for your business.
Is the junk removal company readily available?
Being able to quickly deal with an unwanted mess is important for your business reputation and the needs of your clients. Check the commercial junk removal company’s availability. Many companies will advertise they are available 24/7, but you don’t want to get an automated messaging system after business hours. Companies that use a real, live human to answer service calls after business hours are ideal for working with.
What do they do with the junk from your business?
You’ll want to work with a company that is professional and will properly dispose of the waste once they take it off-site. If the environmental friendliness is essential to you, check and see if they use a green process for waste disposal.
Your business will likely also have sensitivity around how the information is disposed of from a privacy standpoint. Ensuring the highest privacy is available for your electronic machines and paperwork should be top of mind.
Are they flexible?
You may have a small project now, but you’ll want to know the scope of the projects that a commercial junk removal company can service before you partner with them. Contracting with a company that offers a variety of services and flexible packages can give you additional peace of mind, knowing if something unpredictable happens on the job, the company can take care of it. Be sure to ask if the company you intend to hire will cover every aspect of junk removal and hauling, and the types of materials they’ll remove.
What do others say?
Testimonials and recent customer reviews can give you valuable insight into the company’s past behavior and reputation. Finding positive reviews on third-party sites indicates that customers have gone out of their way to sing the praises of the company.
