Stepping Out of Our Comfort Zone to Remove Junk and Debris in Scranton, PA

There is no limit to what we find we can do for our clients!

Early last week, one of our clients called and asked if we removed plaster, which we do. Upon laying eyes on the plaster during the estimate, we came to find out it was a whole wall. Of course, with junk removal, there is occasionally room for light demo and tear down.

I informed our client that this project is a little outside our realm of work, but that I will research the ‘how” and figure out if its obtainable. I spent the weekend doing just that (YouTube for the win).

On Monday, we put our research to the test. Our team was able to successfully cut the wall into thirds to allow for a safe removal of the wall. As you can see in the pictures, it was no small feat.

To get off the topic of junk for a second, if you’re reading this, I challenge you to do something out of your comfort zone today. Talk to someone (or something) that you normally wouldn’t, do something above and beyond even for your awesome self, or study a topic that would have previously intimidated you. If you know me (Dustin) at all, you’ll know my lack of ability to operate one of these power tools. Although I didn’t personally cut the wall, I am confident now that I can in the future personally, and that my team and I can do so on the professional level. Don’t be scared, you either succeed or you learn.

Basement Cleanup in Scranton to Start 2020!!!



At one point or another, each property will undergo renovations. Tearing down walls, adding doors, windows, kitchen demo, the list goes on. The end result is (hopefully) the desired upgrade, but what about the scraps? The boxes of the new floor, the wood trimmings that were not needed, where do they go? Good News! Junken Monkeys Hauling company removes these materials!

Our all inclusive service, which includes all the work, allows you to pile up the debris and allows us to can it up and take it away! Speaking to our clients, this has been found to be the easiest means of doing “DIY” renovations.

We use different techniques in the removal of the debris. Some of our favorite tools include shovels, tarps, garbage cans, gloves, and of course a broom for such removals. Although we are not a cleaning company, we do our best to sweep up once the “bigger stuff” is picked up and removed.

Although we also are not a demolition team, we do know some companies that we highly recommend and can definitely point you in the right direction! We are always here to help you out, please don’t hesitate to reach out and ask.

No Shopping Cart Left Behind!

When we remove junk, we always do our best to, when applicable, return the items that may not be yours, or that were left to you, back to their home. This was the case in Scranton, PA when a client had some unwanted items left in her yard. This was unfortunate, but we did our absolute best to accommodate and help her out.

As you can see in the pictures above. Her yard looked awesome once these items were removed. The mattress and the other waste was brought to the landfill, but the shopping cart was brought back to Gerrity’s Supermarket in West Scranton. When we have the opportunity to do the right thing, we always do it. The shopping cart obviously cost the store money to get and help their customers, so we did our part to help out as well.

Other unique ways to help out our community is to donate and recycle. Some items that we always recycle is clothing, metals, paper, plastic as well as other furniture/necessities.

In terms of pricing, this particular project fell under our minimum charge category due to the small labor and very few items. This is a good example of how our minimum pricing works.

A Garage clean-out in Dunmore, PA

20008236671334044271Earlier this week, Junken Monkeys had the pleasure to do a Garage Clean out in Dunmore, PA 18512. The client was amazing, and it was truly an honor to help her out! We were able to donate a lot of the items, and make sure most of the junk was put into the right hands. We care about the community, the environment, and especially the client as much as we care about one another.

The best part of the junk removal in the garage was the after picture. Seeing just how much space the client truly had in the garage left all parties smiling.

When space is at a need, sometimes getting rid of items is the best way to create square footage. The garage was swept nice to make sure that there were no nails or debris that would affect feet or tires, and items kept were put in a nice space to not interfere with doorways or walkways!

If you have a garage that is ready to have a car in it rather than your junk, Junken Monkeys Hauling Company is only a click away!
