Who Buys Junk Removal Services?

December 31, 2014

Homeowners preparing to downsize, or upsize, are one of many target markets for College Hunks Hauling Junk’s roster of services

If you’ve ever tackled a garage that’s been your family’s unused-item repository for a few years or even decades, then you know the value of a professional, high-quality junk removal franchise. Quick, affordable and friendly junk removal and moving services are the cornerstones of College Hunks Hauling Junk & Moving, and that’s why our customers are a widely varied group.

Of course, a core group is homeowners who are looking to clear out that garage, move into a bigger house or downsize into a smaller space. Junk removal franchise to the rescue! College Hunks Hauling Junk hears from a lot of frazzled moms who don’t even know where to begin, but calls and online inquiries also come from business owners and other professionals, such as Realtors or property managers, who also need help and guidance.

Customizable services lead to success

“In the early days we heard from a lot of people who needed their garage cleared out, but from the get-go we said we’d cater to anybody who needed a truck and at least two reliable, professionally trained and friendly individuals to put things in that truck,” says Tim Heidemann, Director of the College Hunks Hauling Junk Sales and Loyalty Center. “We didn’t care if they needed stuff hauled away, moved across town or just moved from one end of the house to another. And we still don’t, which is why our business continues to grow year after year.”

Safe and secure services also are why College Hunks Hauling Junk’s customers not only are loyal when it comes to repeat business, but when their friends ask for recommendations. The company’s referrals steadily rise every year.

“In the services industry, the female is the household decision maker more than 80 percent of the time,” Tim says. “That’s who typically is going to be calling us, and that’s who is going to tell their friends and neighbors about us. We don’t just count on that, though — we do follow-up calls and send “thank-you” notes to stay in touch, ensuring that we keep that client on board.”

National growth brings in new clients

As College Hunks Hauling Junk has revolutionized the junk removal franchise and moving franchise industries nationwide, it also has seen its client base expand from that female homeowner and decision maker battling her packrat husband.

“We’ve been able to establish some very effective and lucrative partnerships with corporate and commercial entities who can benefit from our services,” Tim says. “Some of those are local or regional operations, while others have offices nationwide and hire us in every market where both we and they have a presence. As we continue to add franchises around the country, we are finding that College Hunks Hauling Junk can effectively penetrate residential and commercial aspects of those markets. From residences to businesses, we do it all.”
