Giving Tuesday with The Junkluggers

Giving Tuesday falls annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and has been raising awareness for charitable causes since 2012.

The Junkluggers first participated in Giving Thursday last year at our company owned locations in Fairfield County and Westchester County by collecting and donating…

How to Prepare for An Estate Sale

If you’ve never held an estate sale, the process can be daunting. Selling a loved one’s belongings can lead to emotional exhaustion and clouded judgement (“Yes, Grandma’s Snoopy plate is worth $500.00 dollars!”) Even if you’re holding an estate sale for your home in preparation for downsizing, the sorting, pricing, tagging of an entire houseful of items is challenging. Deciding to hold an estate sale means you’re in for a lot of work, but the process can be rewarding as…

The Power of Teams:
No One Can do it Alone

Every strong leader or company knows the importance of having a qualified, competent team in place. A good leader delegates and knows that segmenting the work-load to allow the experts to handle what they know best is the most efficient way to manage the task at hand. Accomplishing great things with a team of generalists is difficult, to say the least. As a real estate investor or property manager, your team probably includes roles like a real estate agent to…

Who Do Your Donations Help?

In the early days, The Junkluggers relied on a single truck, painted bright green: the paint made the rust a little less noticeable, but also reminded us that we weren’t just any junk removal company. At our core, we were green. That meant, and still means, we care about protecting the earth just as much as we care about our bottom line. Fast forward 12 years, and I’m proud to say we’ve become a multi-location franchise with many committed business…

Should You Hire Family & Friends?

“Thou shalt not hire friends and family.” It’s one of the sacred foundational Business Management Commandments. As a new business owner, I heard it repeated often: hire friends and family at your own risk. Fortunately, I’ve never been one to stick to conventional wisdom, so I went ahead and hired my brother and several childhood friends, raising quite a few eyebrows along the way. Hiring friends and family isn’t a decision to take lightly, and certainly isn’t a cakewalk. But…
