" was able to come out on the day and time I requested. They called ahead to let us know if it was ok to arrive about 15 minutes early. Once" they arrived, I showed them where the trash piles were and they went to work. Both of the workers were courteous and completed the task quickly. They picked up everything and left the area looking very nice. Before they left, they asked if there was anything else they could do.

-April S.

"I hired Mr. to clean up a property that had not had any lawn care for almost a year. He promptly contacted me to schedule the work. The property" was very overgrown with tall grass and weeds and covered in pine needles. He let me know what he could do in the allotted time up front. When the work was complete, he sent me pictures of the property, which is over 60 miles away. I was very impressed. Mr. went above and beyond what was expected. Not only was the lawn work done well, but all of the pine needles, branches and small dead trees were cleaned up and hauled away. I was very pleased with the work. I'll definitely use him again.

Want to trash the old junk around your house? Find out whether a dumpster or hauling service fits your junk-hauling needs.

When hiring a company to haul junk and garbage away from your home, it's important to know all of the facts about what makes a reputable junk removal service.

Angie's Answers

I second the original question (still unanswered). Speaking as someone who logged in today to try to find an attorney, I see this category as one that's exactly what I have my Angie's List membership for:

1. It's important that I find a good one
2. I'm not an expert enough to know myself who is a good one
3. The industry is full of advertisements and misinformation
4. I wish I knew what experiences other people have had

I don't care about lawns--I planted mine in clover and don't have to mow it. When I do need to mow I use a rotary Fiskars mower, which is great--or a scythe. That's right--a scythe (the European type, which is smaller, and it's very good exercise). Gas-powered mowers, chemical fertilizers and weed killers--all nasty stuff that gets into everyone's air, soil, and water. I'm sure my neighbor doesn't like my wildflowers, semi-wild pockets of fruit bushes, and unmown areas and yes, dandelions (I have 10 acres) but that's too bad. It's better habitat for wildlife, especially the pollinators on which our food supply depends. I think this obsession with the Great American Lawn is a waste of time and resources. Plant some food instead.

I'm not sure Angie et. al. want you to have a complete answer to this question. By re-subscribing at the Indiana State Fair in 2012, I think I paid $20.00 per year for a multi- year subscription. Maybe even less. At the other extreme--and I hope my memory isn't faulty about this--I think the price, for my area, for ONE year was an outrageous $70.00. And they debited me automatically without warning. I had to opt out of that automatic charge. I like Angie's List, but if some of the companies they monitor behaved the way they do in this respect, they'd be on some sort of Pages of Unhappiness. I'll be interested to see if this comment gets published or censored out of existence.

That's very difficult to answer without seeing the house. As one poster said, the prep is the most important part. On newer homes that don't have a lot of peeling paint, the prep can be very minimal even as low as a couple or a few hundred dollars for the prep labor.

On a 100 year old home with 12 coats of peeling paint on it, then the prep costs can be very high and can easily exceed 50% of the job's labor cost.

A 2100 sq ft two story home could easily cost $1000 just for the labor to prep for the paint job. That number could climb too. Throw in lots of caullking  or window glazing, and you could be talking a couple or a few hundred dollars more for labor.

Painting that home with one coat of paint and a different color on the trim could run roughly $1000 or more just for labor. Add a second coat  and that could cost close to another $1000 for labor.

For paint, you may need 20 gallons of paint. You can pay from $30-$70 for a gallon of good quality exterior paint. The manufacturer of the paint should be specified in any painting contract. Otherwise, the contractor could bid at a Sherwin-Williams $60 per gallon paint and then paint the house with $35 Valspar and pocket the difference. $25 dollars per gallon times 20 gallons? That's a pretty penny too.

That was the long answer to your question. The short answer is $2000 to $4000 and up, depending upon the amount of prep, the number of coats, the amount of trim, and the paint used.


You have to put your self in the shoes of a business that is in business to turn a profit of some sort. All businesses have different overhead which in turn decides what their bottom line would be on their services. I personally would not go with an unlicensed professional for this type of install. You are messing with gas, venting issues, electrical wiring{electric water heater} and updated code issues such as a drain pan and tempature and relief drain lines for heaters that currently do not have them. I do agree that there are some companies that are way out of line for their installs but most of these companies are the really big companies that have very high overheads  I would assume. Tank type water heaters have changed over the last several years and with these safety changes come bigger prices. The price of steel thanks to China is skyrocketing and tank type water heaters are made of steel. Most wholesale plumbing supply companies cannot match what the big box stores are selling at retail to consumers. I happen to think from research that heaters such as Rheem, Bradford White and AOSmith who have been in business forever make a better product than what you can buy in the big box outlets. You also have to take in consideration the location of the water heater that is being replaced. Is it in the house, basement, garage or attic. Most 40 and 50 gallon water heaters that are purchased in a plumbing wholesale store in Texas cost between 300-340 for a 6 year warranty heater with 6 year on parts and tank. Speaking of warranty. Most big box companies will take a least 24 hours to a week to get your warranty problem taken care of. Most reputable plumbing companies will give same day service if they installed the heater.

So lets break down a typical install at cost to a licensed plumber in Texas

Heater: $315, water shut off $6.50, water flex lines or unions to code $20, gas flex line and cut off to code $12, misc fittings $15, Total $368.50 Lets add a 35% profit which is some what low  for a business $129, Total 497.50

This doesnt  include permits, pan and drain or any venting issues. The vent must go from the heater to the outside of roof using double wall vent.

Cost of permit on average $60

Most plumbing companies allow for 3 hours of time for a water heater. This includes picking the new one up. Delivering out to house. Draining and removing old water heater. Hauling off old heater. Installing new heater up to code. Going down to city and pulling permit.

Average Labor charges for heater installs $400

That would make this install run without extras on any code issues $957.50

I just had a 50 gallon gas water heater installed in my house for $1200 but I needed a pan installed. I used a licensed plumber.




Todd said it best.

An itemized list / cost breakdown, more often than not is used against the contractor when it is shared with other builders who will then beat it.

Good contractors use good people, and good people cost more.  Just the cost of having the appropriate insurance / bond can be the difference between winning a job or losing it ot a 'lower bid'.

It is the rule of three; there is Good, Cheap and Fast.  You can have any two:  Good and Cheap, won't be Fast; Good and Fast, won't be Cheap;  Cheap and Fast, won't be Good!

When comparing bids, it isn't the cheapest or the 'nicest' person you should select.   You should understand why there is a large price difference (it shows there are gaps in your design program or what you have asked for specifically, which means there may be arguments later).  If most of the bids are in line, and one is way high or way low,  you want to know why before dismissing or selecting them.

A price-only decision almost always costs more in the long run. 

Good luck!

Hauling reviews in Birmingham


I called for a quote to have several trees removed and was given an appointment time. They arrived promptly and provide a quote that was in line with others I had received. The work was scheduled for the following week. The team arrived on time with the appropriate equipment and did a through and professional job including the cleanup. I'm ...More very satisfied with the result.
- Ray D.

I called and they came that day. They got everything out of the garage and I sent them a check. Easy as could be. I will use them again when I clean out the basement and fill up the garage with junk again.
- Rosa S.

We called to ask for an estimate on hauling 3 large cultured marble shower walls and 1-8' long cultured marble double lavatory vanity. The contractor who handled our bath renovation kept promising he would remove all the debris, After a month, he hauled off the sheetrock debris, but moved the long lavatory piece to our drive-way ...More and said he would return that afternoon to pick up the cultured marble pieces. After 3 days, our told us we had to remove it. We explained the urgency to and within 2 hours, 's Dad told us they would honor the Angie's List coupon price and arrived less than an hour later to move the items...and swept up the driveway as well. We cannot thank them enough for reacting to our problem and give the highest for promptness and professionalism in completing the task.
- JoAnn F.

They arrived on time as scheduled. They came to the door to let me know they were there and immediately went to work. They loaded up each pile of debris, checking with me at the end to ensure that they got all of the items I wanted hauled off. They offered to come back and take some additional items that I had in the yard (i.e. an old swingset and ...More trampoline) which I gladly accepted. We just so happened to be there when came back to get the trampoline, and were there unloading furniture. I couldn't pick up the furniture, and we had been standing around for an hour trying to figure out what we were going to do. He volunteered to help and helped my fiance' unload the whole bedroom set. It is things like that that make me continue my business with this company. They are wonderful gentlemen and are just great to work with.
- Kathy A.

was hired after I had met with and hired two other Concrete contractors to do the work and they never showed up. Not only did he show up and start when he said he would, he did a fantastic job and had to work through some extremely wet weeks of work to complete the project.
He originally said the entire project should ...More take 3 full days if the rain would hold off. It ended up taking almost 3 weeks to complete due to it raining almost every day for 3 solid weeks. He showed up almost every day, even on weekends to try and get done whatever he possibly could in spite of the bad weather and never once complained. He called to touch base with me on a daily basis to let me know what had been done and where things stood. He catered to every request I had and made a few project changes and never changed his original price he quoted me. For example, he wasn't satisfied with the quality of soil in my front yard and was afraid the sod/bushes might not grow well in it so he brought in several loads of topsoil to ensure the grass and bushes would grow well. He even reset my mailbox for me as a favor at the end of the project even though that was not part of the bid. He was a pleasure to work with and took tremendous pride in doing an excellent job. The end result was stunning and you could tell his years of experience really paid off in the finished work! we've had a couple of hard rains and there's been no more water in the basement. The french drain and excavation work he did worked perfectly. The newly soded yard and circular driveway looks terrific and I've had several neighbors already compliment me on how great the driveway and yard look.
I would highly reccomend Banks to anyone needing excavaiton, concrete driveway/walkway or sod work!
- mark H.

crew showed up and performed the work beyond what was agreed upon. The agreed upon work included hauling off one huge pile of logs/limbs/bushes that I had accumulated over several weeks of yard rehab. They had a bit of room left in their truck so they hauled off another small pile that I had accumulated off to the side. Hauling ...More all of this off myself in truck and trailer would have taken at least a couple of days and multiple trips to the dump.
I was not home when the work was performed, but my wife says that his crew was very professional. We are definitely pleased with the work that was done.
- Lewis B.

was very professional and personable. His quote was reasonable. He was always punctual and hard working. He did all the work as described with a great attitude and cleaned up at the completion of the job exceptionally well. I would use his services again.
- Diane P.

and crew came in one day and finished up everything remove trash and trees off property, cleaned up nicely
