Dumpster Rental vs. Junk Removal: Pros and Cons

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 Detroit


I used this service before in October to move from Downtown Detroit to Livonia. I quickly realized that I needed to move out and move to . I rented a U-Haul two guys named moved all my things and furniture from my apartment into the truck. Again, they took extra precaution to make sure my dresser, TV ...More and two tower speakers where protected. Once everything was loaded in the truck I drove the truck to the new apartment in . The two guys unloaded my furniture into the new apartment.

- Tyrone M.

When I made the appointment I was told to make sure I visited their website to understand what load size was included in the $79 coupon, which I appreciated. On appointment day I was also notified they were running about 30 minutes past the window I expected them to arrive, which I also greatly appreciated. I did indeed have more items for a larger ...More load so after agreeing to the extra cost they quickly removed everything, loaded it onto the truck and gave me a receipt. All the guys were polite and professional... the crew leader was especially nice. I would definitely call them again. They were great!
- Carleen O.

They arrived on time, & were quick, courteous & professional. The owner was very helpful in taking away all items which I requested to be removed. I can now park my car in the garage (after it's repaired next week) :-) Thank you for a job well done!

- Kathy W.

On August 11, 2014, my basement flooded (12" of water). Many items were damaged and had to be hauled away. I searched Angie's list and found Junkpot who were having a special. I called them and scheduled a pick up date. They were very courteous and accommodating. Later, I received a confirmation e-mail regarding the date and time of scheduled ...More pick-up. called on the day of scheduled pick up and said he was running a little late, but would be at my house in 20 minutes. Twenty minutes later, they drove up. They were very professional, loaded items on the truck and made sure that the area was cleaned before they left. I would definitely hire this company again.
- Orpah H.

It went well. They did an excellent job. I wish all my experiences with Angie's List Service Providers go as well.

I was very satisfied with the work that and did. My 86 year old mom was a hoarder and after we moved her to senior residence we had to clean out the house so that it could be fixed up and sold. Junk-Pot came for 4 days to clean it all out. There was SO MUCH STUFF but and ...More worked very hard to remove the items that needed to be removed. They were very professional and pleasant to work with. We had been removing items from the house for the past year but there is no way we would have been able to get this done without Junk-Pot. We were completely worn out. I would recommend this company to anyone who has either a few items or a whole house clean out. Thanks Junk-Pot, you were a lifesaver!

Provider called to confirm appointment came as promised and he stated that I had more than the special but he gave me a fair price to haul it away. He and is crew was very courteous and nice and most of all professional. Will use again.
