Hoarding Information You Can Use
1) How does Lake Cook Cleanout work?
A) We are a junk removal service company that will come to your home or business to remove and haul away materials you no longer want for a fee. We only charge based upon the amount of materials you need removed. All our labor and disposal fees are included in the price we quote. We do the work, you don't.
When you book an appointment with us, we will agree on a two hour window for us to arrive. We normally call 15 minutes prior to arrival to let you know when we will be there. Upon arrival, we will look at all the items you want removed and will provide you with a written estimate or you can use our partial load yard pricing chart based upon the actual space used in our vehicle. If you are happy with our estimate, we can start removing your items on the spot. We will never charge more than our quoted price, but will charge you less if it all takes less room than we had estimated. There is no obligation to you for our estimate if you decide not to retain our services while we are there. When the job has been completed, we will give you a receipt with the final price. We also sweep the floors if appropriate.
2) Why would I use your service rather than just rent a dumpster?
A) Two reasons:
First, if you hire Lake Cook Cleanout, we do all the work and clean up then haul it all away. We charge based upon the volume of materials you need removed. Dumpsters sit on your property and you have to do all the loading yourself. You also pay full fees on a dumpster whether you fill it or not. When you are done, you then have to call the dumpster company again to have it removed. Sometimes that takes days.
Secondly, we are almost always cheaper per yard than renting a dumpster. A dumpster in the Chicago-land area usually starts at $350.00-$400.00 for a smaller size and goes up from there. Dumpsters can also damage your driveway. Rubber tires on vehicles do not.
3) What about costs?
A) We charge based upon the how much space is filled up in our trailers. Our large trailer is equivalent to a 20 cubic yard dumpster . Our smaller trailers are equivalent to a ˝ load on a 1-800 truck. You only pay for what you use. Our price includes all labor and dump fees. There are no hidden fees. Please read through our “Rates” page for specific pricing and types of materials.
4) Why can't you give me an exact price by phone when I call?
A) Pricing is based upon volume and the type of materials involved. The only way we can give an exact price is after we see everything that needs to be removed.
5) How do your prices compare against the 1-800 guys?
A) We are always priced less.
We are not saddled by monthly franchise and profit sharing fees like those guys. This means we can always beat them on price. Example:
1-800 Blue charges $538.00 for a 15 yard “truck load” in the northern suburbs, $598.00 in Chicago.
Lake Cook Cleanout charges $500.00 for a 20 yard trailer load anywhere in our service area. This means we can take 25% more stuff for you at fees $38.00 to $98.00 less! Our partial load prices are always cheaper too.
6) I don't have a lot of stuff: will you still take it?
A) Sure. Small jobs are no problem. We even provide pickup and removal of single items! Please refer to our “Rates” page for more information.
7) What equipment do you use?
A) We use trailers that hold up to 20 cubic yards which is also the size of a large dumpster and are 25% larger than those 1-800 guys! . We use smaller capacity equipment when appropriate for smaller jobs. This helps keep our costs down and our rates low.
8) Are you bonded and insured?
A) Yes, we carry all required insurances, General Liability, vehicle, etc. We are also bonded.
9) What other services does Lake Cook Cleanout perform?
A) We are a full service Junk Removal company that goes beyond the scope of our competitors.
Not only can we remove everyday household and business materials, but we also offer dismantling and removal of outdoor items like sheds, decks, hot tubs, fencing, play gyms, exercise equipment, etc. We are also equipped to remove items like vehicles, motorcycles, office equipment, farm equipment, and machinery. None of the 1-800 guys do that.
10) What methods of payment do you accept?
A) We honor most major credit cards, accept checks with prior approval and ID. and of course. cash. We do not accept Paypal
11) What happens to my junk?
A) That all depends on what is in your load.
Normally, we sort materials as best possible as we load our trailers. This allows us to separate items made of metal, appliances, electronics, yard wastes, tires and items that can be donated to keep them out of landfills. The above items will either get recycled at specialized recycling centers or donated. The rest goes to a sold waste transfer station to be sorted by that agency which then decides what goes into a landfill and what can be recovered and recycled. Every effort is made to keep items out of landfills if possible.
12) What kinds of junk can you remove?
A) Please refer to our “Junk List” page as additional items are often added.
This page also lists items that we are restricted by law from transporting.
