Frequently Asked Questions
What is Mike's Hauling Service?
We are full service junk removal company. All you have to do is point at what you want gone; we take care of the hauling, transportation and dumping. Our costs are completely up front and all inclusive, so you know what you’re paying before we even take anything.
Are there any items you can’t take?
Unfortunately, we can’t take hazardous chemicals or waste products.
How big are your trucks?
Our truck beds are 16’ by 8’ by 5’, or 640 cubic feet, which is roughly twice the size of our major competitors’ trucks.
Can you take a single item, like a couch, and for how much?
We do jobs of any size, from a single piece of furniture to a full house clean out. For a couch we’d likely charge the minimum rate, which is $95.
Will I have to help load my items into the truck?
Of course not! When you book Mike's Hauling Service for your junk removal job, you should be prepared to relax while we do the heavy lifting. When our junk removal team arrives, all you have to do is point at what goes and we’ll remove it - no matter where it is.
Is there any cost to getting an estimate?
Nope, our estimates are completely cost and stress free. You can book your free estimate by calling 301-588-9171.
How do you price your junk removal?
We price based on the size of the load - meaning how much space your items take up in our truck. We’ll tell you the upfront removal price before any work is done so you’ll know what to expect.
If I’m not there can you still do the job?
Yes, we can haul the items if they’ve been clearly marked or described and are accessible. We’ll call you before arriving and then after we get there to give you a price estimate and ask if you’d like to go ahead with the job, so you stay in full control of the process even when you’re not there.
What do you do with the junk you haul away?
We recycle and donate as many items as we can, while everything else is taken to a waste to energy conversion plant so that your junk can become the energy that powers tomorrow.
What do you arrive with?
Three strong men, a large dump truck, brooms, shovels, and any other tools necessary to get the job done.
Why should I pick you over another junk removal company?
Our prices: we charge nearly half of what our competitors would for the same amount of junk hauled.
We’re local: we started in the Washington DC metro area 25 years ago, and remain one of the top choices for the metro region’s residents.
Professionalism: we arrive on time, are tidy, and will take care of any job with no ifs or buts about it.
Customer service: we strive to meet every customer’s desires and treat them with the courtesy and respect they deserve.
