Thursday, September 19th, 2013 - 1800-GOT-JUNK?

(PERTH)  Just four months after rolling its blue and green trucks into Perth, 1800-GOT-JUNK? is recording record revenues for a new franchise of the world’s largest junk removal company.  Crews have removed $86,000 worth of junk and repurposed most of it through recycling and donations.

Does this mean Perth homeowners have more junk than the rest of the country? Franchise owner Rob Curnow says no.

“Bringing this unique service to Perth has been a long time coming. Once people learned of our presence, and particularly that we have an eco-friendly approach, the phones kept ringing, ” explains Curnow. 

Homeowners in Sydney, Gold Coast, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide, as well as Canada and the U.S. are already familiar with the unique service that offers a greener option for disposing of the items people no longer need. Entrepreneur Rob Curnow, who has built a successful 1800-GOT-JUNK? presence in Adelaide, has had his sights on Perth for more than two years. With the support of business partner, Shannon Heintze he set out to make that dream a reality.

1800-GOT-JUNK? is a full service junk removal company that has become the solution to a growing trend of junk collection. Busy lifestyles coupled with increasing consumerism have helped forge a junk removal industry that is booming globally. 

The company picks up items that rubbish collectors don’t. Truck team members remove items from their location so there is no dragging to the verge, and they perform a full clean-up after. The company employs high tech systems in a low tech industry, with a central call centre, online booking capability, and a mobile app to allow truck team members to stay on top of business in real time.

1800-GOT-JUNK? in Perth  offers  services to the residential, as well as commercial markets, including property managers, builders, and facility managers.
