Moving Help

We’re not movers. We’re moving helps. 

We don’t do full household moves. We do small moves, in- house moves and furniture rearranging. We offer moving help as a courtesy to fill a gap. Professional moving help that’s cost appropriate for the jobs that are too small for traditional movers.

Junk Removal & Donation Services

Remove junk. Relieve stress.

We make it easy to get rid of furniture, appliances, tools, clothes and household clutter. Fast service. Professional team. Honest prices.

Not all junk is trash. Donation is our first instinct. We want to keep items out of the landfill, put them in the hands of people who can use them & raise money for worthy causes.

FAQs

Junk removal costs are based on volume and measured in truck space. Check out our FREE load calculator to get a ballpark estimate. We’ll confirm the quote in- person and before we start any work. This way, you’ll know the cost before you approve the pickup.

Request:

Junk removal always starts with a conversation. That could be an online request, email, text, call or chat. When you click the orange “Remove My Junk!” button on this page it’ll have you fill out a simple request form to start that conversation. Once we connect, we’ll listen to your needs and provide a price range.

Assessment:

Some jobs may require us to schedule an assessment. An in- person visit where we can get a better idea of the job scope. Often, we’ll provide a quote during that visit and will then be prepared to do the work at that same time.

Quote:

More often, we’ll be able to provide a reasonably accurate estimate from that conversation. We’ll then text you a written quote. Once you “approve” the quote, we’ll confirm the appointment. To be clear, quote approval at this point is not a sales commitment. It’s a price acknowledgement, authorization to schedule the work appointment and acceptance of our liability limits.

Visit:

Once the quote is approved, we’ll schedule an appointment. Appointments are scheduled in 2 hour arrival windows. The crew lead will call or text before heading your way.

Upon arrive, we’ll introduce ourselves and “walk the job” with you. During this time, we’ll ask questions and develop a game plan for safely and efficiently removing your junk. We’ll also confirm the quote at this time. Any changes to the job, quote or schedule will be discussed with you first. Before anything happens.

When you authorize the job, we’ll get started.

Once finished, we’ll confirm the job is completed to your satisfaction and will provide the final invoice. This is usually texted directly to your phone, but we will review it with you. You can pay from your phone. We also accept cash, check or Venmo.

We get rid of the things you don’t want or need anymore. Just show us what needs to go. We’ll safely remove and responsibly dispose of the stuff with a kind, professional team and at a fair price.

Here’s a more comprehensive list of junk removal items we can haul away.

Yes! We are full service, so just show us what needs to go and we’ll take care of the rest. This includes stairs, disassembly, bagging and boxing when necessary.

It’s important that we keep things out of the landfill, get reusable items into the hands of people who can use them and raise money for worthy causes whenever we can. To accomplish this we do a few things:

  1. Resell: We’ve developed our 2nd Life Program benefitting the Isabella Santos Foundation. With this program, we resell easily sellable items on Facebook Marketplace and through our insider group at liquidation prices. 50% of the proceeds from the sale of these items is donated to ISF while the remaining money is put into a bonus pool for the crew.
  2. Donate: Reusable items that are more difficult for us to store or sell are donated to some of the area donation centers (Goodwill, Habitat for Humanity, Tender Hearts, etc).
  3. Recycle: We recycle what we can. This means sorting trash at the dump and delivering to scrap yards and commercial recycling centers.
  4. Dump: The landfill is our last resort, but a fair amount of junk ends up.

We do not offer discounts or credits for sold, donated or recycled items. There is a significant cost (labor, shortage, fuel, etc.) to sorting and separating the loads and any money that comes in, goes back out in the form of a charitable donation to ISF.

We’re not movers. We offer moving help. We offer this service as a courtesy because we kept getting asked for it. People were looking for cost- appropriate ways to move small amounts of things. These are the types of moves we do most often:

 

Assisted Living/ Independent Living- Moving a loved one into a care facility is difficult. And emotional. We often help with these moves because they are time sensitive and there usually isn’t that much furniture. A lot of times these moves happen in steps and we can help here to. Whether that’s assisting with “junk” removal or delivering items to kids houses, storage, etc.

Storage Delivery & Cleanouts- Self storage really should be short term storage. A staging area during certain life transitions or an opportunity to make declutter decisions. Wherever you are in that process, we can help move and remove items to/ from storage.

Furniture Rearranging/ In- House Moves– If you bought new furniture, have kids switching rooms or are having some work done, we can provide the labor. 

For any moves requiring transport we have a 2 hour minimum. That minimum rate includes 2 guys for 2 hours and 20 miles of travel.

Moves that don’t require transport (in- house) have just a 1 hour minimum (2 guys for 1 hour of labor).

After the minimums, we charge an hourly rate and mileage.

In all cases, we run a timer on the job so you’ll only be invoiced for the actual time worked above minimums (even if it’s less than the initial quote).

Our moving “rig” is our 136 in. Ram ProMaster (high roof Sprinter style van) with a 10 ft. enclosed trailer. You can read more about our truck fleet here.

Our team is skilled and experienced. Professionals who take pride in their trade. That said…

Moving help service is offered as a courtesy to provide quality moving services at scale and for a reasonable price. The gap we aim to fill is to provide professional, experienced and skilled moving help for the jobs that are too small for traditional movers. To fill this need, there is an element of risk to be understood. The customer accepts this risk and the COMPANY shall not be held responsible. 

We are licensed and have great insurance coverage (workers compensation, general liability, umbrella & auto). We DO NOT HAVE cargo insurance. Therefore, you are hiring us at your own risk. We will do everything possible to allow for the safe and careful handling of your items. That said, accidents happen for all sorts of reasons and we are not responsible for damage to moved items. We reserve the right to repair or replace damaged items at COMPANY discretion.

Please read out full disclaimer and liability limits disclosure here.

Our Department of Transportation (USDOT) license is currently pending.

We’re based in Fort Mill and serve the South Carolina communities of Fort Mill, Indian Land, Lancaster, Rock Hill, Clover, York, Tega Cay/ Lake Wylie.

We work in the North Carolina communities of Waxhaw, Pineville, Ballantyne, Matthews & South Charlotte. Moving help minimums include 20 miles of travel. There is a mileage charge after that. We may stretch outside of our 20 mile service radius but out- of- area charges may apply.

Cameron Ungar and Stashy

Decluttering can be stressful. That was probably the biggest surprise getting into this business... Understanding how emotional the work is. People are managing feelings of overwhelm, sentimentality, loss, fear, anxiety and guilt. Often the results of junk removal though, are the counter emotions like relief, hope and optimism.

relief [ri-leef]: (noun) A means or thing that relieves pain, distress, anxiety, etc.

Sherry Lynn
"I'm speechless. I've worked in the Customer Service field my entire career and have an eye for "excellence." The overall experiene was exceptional from my initial contact with Cameron to meeting his amazing team: Jemell, Chase & Matt. I called and the move was arranged in a day. It is stressful placing my mom in assisted living but they made the process flawless, quick and reasonably priced. You're one of a kind. Please keep doing what you're doing. God bless the work of your hands."
