" called me from Minneapolis, Minnesota and asked me to send some pictures of what I needed hauled off. I was expecting in the $200 range but" right after I sent then pics he told me that it would be $240-300. He then txt and asked me if I wanted to schedule. I wanted a firm price, so I told him that if it exceeded $240 I would hold off for now. He then told me, less than 5 minutes later, that my job was actually much more than $300, and that $300 was the minimum he would offer. What changed in the pictures over the course of 10 minutes? Nothing. I wanted a firm price but he wanted business, so he chose to give me a lower price "range" with the plan of it actually being the highest price. I don't do business this way. I need to know the price before I agree to something and I don't appreciate somebody trying to use the "range" tactic. I knew it was sketchy when he didn't even offer to come out and look at it first.

"Arrived on the scheduled day, late in the afternoon. They had had a flat tire on the truck earlier that day and were running behind. I was impressed that they at" least made the effort to show up as late as 5:30. Since it was too late to start, they returned the following day. Both workers were very nice as well as professional. They had to cut the into sections which was hard work. Once completed, I paid them and they left. I was happy with both service and price.

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 Nashville


Requested mainly to remove antenna from roof. Missed communications, unable to locate my address. The couple did not seem confident to perform the task citing risk factors. Thus, they removed other items for their minimum charge of $95.00. I was not pleased with their expertise.
- Jane K.

Basic service - junk. Could not have been better. is a great guy. He came right over and loaded everything up - mattress, box springs, old gas grill, yard debris from trimming bushes. Reasonable price. Offered to sweep up. I cannot recommend him more highly. I wish there were A+ ratings.
- chris P.

was professional & cordial. I offered to help, but he said he could load it all himself. Mattress/box & old BBQ grill are items that were refused by charitable organizations, but they are now out of my way. He also explained that can perform several services. I would definitely use them again. Thanks!
- John M. F.

Called Junk Genuis - they came out and gave me an outrageous quote. I declined.
Then I called - they looked at it the next day and did it for 1/2 of the first quote Junk Genuis gave me and removed requested items the same day. The property looks great. They will get my first call next time I need some clean up done.
- Rodney C.

After I purchased the deal, I called them due to the response email I received. They were very prompt, courteous, and professional. When trying to schedule this deal, they were booked out too far, as I needed these items picked up this week. I am just requesting a refund on this deal.
- Tammy O.

The two employees were punctual, polite, and thorough. Will definitely recommend them to friends and family as well as use them again.
- kevin B.

Arrived within the guaranteed time frame and went straight to work. They were diligent to wrap all items and pack them carefully.
- Chad C.

Absolutely pleased with their service. Two young men were prompt, courteous, willing to sort for recycling, undaunted by the dirt of the job, and all the different types of things they were asked to haul!
