Spring Cleaning While Quarantining? College Hunks Helping Those Who Are Also Hunkering Down

Company offers no-contact junk removal to relieve stress for those stuck at home

TAMPA, FL – College HUNKS Hauling Junk and Moving®, the leading moving and junk removal company known for its fun, enthusiastic brand is taking a serious approach to relieving stress for those stuck at home spring cleaning by launching a new Express No-Contact Junk Pickup Program. Using the taglines “spring cleaning while quarantining” and “call the Hunks while Hunk’ering down,” the company is repositioning its offerings to continue providing its essential service of bulk trash and junk removal from curbside or driveways of homes and apartment communities as residents shelter in place.

“While so many other activities have been curtailed, Spring Cleaning is certainly not cancelled, so College HUNKS is pivoting to offer junk and donation pickups from outside homes and business during this challenging time,” states Co-Founder Nick Friedman. College HUNKS customers can now choose between the usual white glove full-service option, or the Express Pickup contactless option. Franchise locations are offering clients discounts for the Express Pickup. “We strive to take excellent care of our clients and assure them that we are still open and ready to serve as an essential service that will be here to help them as they look for ways to be productive while hunkering down,” said Friedman. “Even though we can no longer do high-fives for a job well done, our clients still need trucks and labor to assist with their spring cleaning hauling as well as moving needs, and now is the time more than ever to deliver on our brand promise of Trust and Care. This means eliminating health risks while providing an essential service that homeowners, business owners and local government agencies still need.”

The company is also taking safety precautions to ensure the health of their team members and clients, following the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) measures and has instituted employee temperature checks and is disinfecting their trucks after each job. “We value the safety of each of our clients and team members,” said Omar Soliman, co-founder and CEO of College HUNKS. “Beyond monitoring the situation and consulting with local public health officials, we have protocols in place, which mandate that every franchise across the country practices new safety measures such as eliminating our daily team huddles.”

In addition to Express No-Contact Junk Pickup, College HUNKS is continuing to provide full moving services so that no one will be stranded during this challenging time. They are also providing a wide range of other essential services. As a national transportation, logistics and waste hauling company, their trucks and teams are assisting with transportation of needed supplies, warehousing & storage, bulk trash and dumpster alternatives, waste & refuse disposal, and delivery of goods to businesses and homes.

College HUNKS is also a purpose driven, socially conscious company that has partnered with Feeding Children Everywhere, donating two meals for every completed service that benefits a family in need. “This is a critical time for mitigating childhood hunger when children are stuck at home without access to nutritional meals at school, so keeping our trucks rolling to help our clients who need us while also donating two meals to Feeding Children Everywhere for each job will hopefully help mitigate the long term negative impact on our communities,” states Soliman.
