If you are in the junk removal business or thinking about getting into the junk removal business, there are some things you should know. Keep reading to learn what common junk removal mistakes to avoid.
You’ll need a truck or van for junk removal, but consider your purchase carefully. Since the vehicle will be used to carry junk like furniture, construction debris, and other heavy and damaging items, your vehicle will also get damaged.
Many new junk removal businesses will go out and buy a few vehicles, this is not what you want to do. First, you shouldn’t buy more vehicles than you need. If you are just starting your business up, chances are you won’t have enough volume of business to need multiple vehicles.
Second, you shouldn’t buy a brand new truck. Why pay upwards of $50,000 for a new truck that is just going to be used to haul junk? A used truck for less than half the price will do the job as needed.
You also need to consider insurance. Your personal insurance won’t cut it, you’ll need to get a business insurance policy for your vehicles.
