A junk removal business is in the service industry. A service job is one that provides a service instead of a product. A store will sell actual hard items something you can see and feel. A service job sells their experience or knowledge. In that case you would say that you could pick the junk up your self, it does not take a genius right. But what people do not see is that around a construction site it can be dangerous.
It does take knowledge to tear something down with out it falling on you. When they remove things it is not always that they will just pick it up off of the ground. They will have to do some tearing down. What they do is they will clean unwanted things from your home, business or anywhere. What they do is turn around and recycle what ever they have removed for you. Construction crews will use these removal services because a lot of their work will require demolition.
You have to tear things down sometimes before you can rebuild, sometimes there is just no way around it you will make a mess. Their job is to clean that mess for you. For instance what they do is when the construction company tears down a school for renovation, they will come in before demolition and remove anything that can be. Aluminum gutters, air conditioner units, copper pipes and wires.
They also help the environment because all of these junk and unwanted items would have ended up in a landfill somewhere, but they will swoop in and dismantle if needed and remove the junk. When they recycle the materials they will get what ever the scrap value of that material is. So they get paid from the construction crew and they will also get a payment from the recycling center.
The reason that the construction crew or company will not just do it themselves is because it does take time that they do not have. So they are willing to pay someone else to make sure they will be able to complete the job that they have. They are a sub contractor for the original demolition crew. For a home owner they will do things such as remove old broken down cars when the owner does not have a way to move it themselves. They will recycle the cars also, so a junk removal service is kind of like a vulture. In the respect that they find old dead items that is not doing anything other than stinking up the place.
They will swoop in and go to work dismantling the items and piece by piece they will with the use of recycling ensure that what ever they are getting will be used again. There are also junk removal services that specialize in cleaning abandoned homes. They may be removing rubbish instead of recyclable materials. But what ever they are moving it is helping to make the area a better place for everyone.
