I am a tad bit obsessed with the television show Hoarders. Even my husband watches it with me every once in a while.
If you haven’t seen it, it’s a reality show much like Intervention, only the people receiving the help are Hoarders and in most cases, they are being threatened with their children being taken away or steep fines and possible jail time for their hoarding.
In every episode, they bring in a certified doctor who specializes in Hoarding as well as a team of cleaners and a crew to help haul away the garbage. I had never heard of 1800GotJunk before watching Hoarders, but WOW! I am certainly familiar with them now.
In one episode, I watched them move an entire warehouse full of arcade equipment. They didn’t break a single thing! In another, they helped with a Appliance Removal Chicago episode. They literally hauled away a ton of used appliances for an elderly couple who were in over their heads.
I did a bit of research on the company because my family was considering hiring a junk removal company to help clean up my home when we bought it. It literally had things sitting in the yard for 50 years that I wanted out pronto! Of course, the first company I thought of was 1800GotJunk. It was that actually the only junk removal company that I knew by name!
Have you ever seen the show, or used a haul-away company? I’d love to hear about it!
