Are there Hidden Costs in Junk Removal?
We came up with this blog post due to the amount of companies that deploy bait and switch tactics, or hidden costs. The way it normally works is they’ll schedule a promotion for next to nothing to draw you in and schedule an appointment; then, when they are on scene and when it is convenient for you to have them complete the work, they will add on additional charges. As opposed to a set amount of work for the price of the deal, they’ll leave it open ended.
Fire Dawgs Junk Removal does not believe in these tactics that is why we keep our load size calculator on our website. Customers can use it to calculate their load size; then, they can call us or email their load size for a price estimate. With that information, we can give a realistic expectation of price before the appointment is scheduled. We also illustrate our Surcharge List on our website for items like Freon, tires or other difficult disposal items so customers can know in advance what they’re getting into.
At times, we will work with companies like Angie’s List or Amazon Local for junk removal deals where we offer $49 for $105 Worth of Hauling, which is good for our minimum sized load. If you go to our calculator, or Pricing tab, you’ll see that when you scroll over the Min Sized Load, it illustrates a load the size of an average refrigerator. That is a minimum sized load. If you don’t have a refrigerator, but have items that add up to a refrigerator in size, then that is a minimum sized load. If you would like to have more items removed in addition to the refrigerator or minimum sized load, then we can provide an estimate while on scene for the remainder of the items.
We hope we’ve answered: Are there Hidden Costs in Junk Removal. We want to be transparent for our customers so if you have additional questions before scheduling an appointment, please call 317-291-DAWG or email [email protected] and we’ll be happy to answer them for you!
