How do you schedule jobs?

All scheduling is done by owner, John Schott. We work fast and want to be efficient with our time. And, more importantly your time! We all have busy lives and we strive to provide clear, concise communication. We believe with technology this day in age that communication should be easy, efficient and of utmost importance! John Schott keeps in touch with customers through call or text: 317-784-8760 or email:

How soon can you provide services?

We recommend 1-3 days notice to provide services for many of the smaller 1-2 hour jobs. These can typically be done very quickly depending on weather, time of season and location. If you are needing a load of trash or junk hauled away many times it can be the same or next day. Scheduling of larger jobs are typically put in the queue on a first come-first serve basis. But, again time of season, weather and complexity of job can affect schedule. Call or text 317-784-8760 or email today so we can get you on the schedule!


What items can you take?

We can take just about anything! Check out our What We Take page for everything we can remove from your home or business. If you don't see it on the list, go ahead and call. Try to surprise us! If we can get it on our trucks, we will haul it away. The only materials we are unable to take include hazardous materials, chemicals, paints, oils, or other toxic materials. Click to find the closest Tox Drop to dispose of such items.

What happens to items you haul away?

We do our best to recycle, reuse, or donate all your unwanted items. Many household items get donated to a variety of charities depending on their location. We have proudly supported and donated to St. Vincent de Paul of Indianapolis for many years. We recycle all metals, appliances, and electronic waste. We take yard waste, branches, brush, leaves, and tree debris to Greencycle to become mulch and compost!


How much junk can you haul?

Our dump truck and trailer setup is ideal for many different jobs. With our dump truck and trailer combined, we are able to haul 25-30 cubic yards of material in one load! With our setup we can separate items being donated, recycled or to be reused. That's how we can save you time and money!

​Are you licensed and insured?

We are fully licensed and insured for all services we provide. If you would like to see our documentation, just let us know.​

​How do you accept payment?​​

We accept check and all major credit cards. Credit card transactions are processed thru a secure link with Square Checkout so you are able to pay in private and on your own time! We do not require you pay the 3% processing fee, but a 3% tip is appreciated to cover this cost for convenience of using a credit card. We can provide invoicing for services so there is no need to be present while we work. We don't accept payment until you are completely satisfied...our goal is your satisfaction!


What are your prices?

While most jobs vary greatly depending on size and location, we can give you a better estimate by checking out our pricing page. Text or email pictures for a quick estimate on junk removal jobs. For normal household junk, furniture, appliances and brush piles we charge per the volume of pickup truck sized load which is standard in the industry. But, our truck/trailer combo will hold the volume of several pickup truck sized loads, up to 30 cubic yards. For heavier materials, demolition work, landscape removal, forestry mulching and gravel driveway work pricing can very greatly. These may require an on site review of job and estimate, but sometimes can be estimated via pictures!

How do you give estimates?

All estimates and communications are done by owner, John Schott! Pictures can help greatly with getting an estimate much quicker! Text or email pictures of what you are needing removed and we will get a price to you right away! For gravel driveways, landscape removal, lot clearing or larger sized jobs, John Schott does his best to get to all new job requests within 1-2 weeks. Location and time of season do you affect scheduling of estimates.
