About The Junkluggers

We strive to make a positive impact on the world!

Junkluggers help our customers

We're setting a new standard in junk removal.

When our CEO Josh Cohen started The Junkluggers in 2004, he used his mom’s SUV and operated out of a small storage closet in his father's office. Brand-conscious from the start, he painted one wall in the tiny room a brilliant shade of green. That dazzlingly green wall served as a constant reminder of where Josh wanted to take the company. From the get-go, The Junkluggers green has represented the high-energy and eco-friendly focus our company lives out every day.

The commitment to strengthening and defining The Junkluggers brand began in the earliest days of our company and continues to guide our growth. Since the beginning, Josh knew he was on to something great so in 2013, after nearly 10 years in business, Josh took the step to bring his eco-friendly services to more neighborhoods across the country through franchising. With a dedicated corporate staff and highly trained franchise owners, The Junkluggers works hard at building brand awareness and visibility as we continue to grow across the United States.

Join a brand with a rich company culture that is:

  • Fun
  • Energetic
  • Relatable
  • Stands out in a crowd

In 2019, the Junkluggers further strengthened our franchise system by partnering with Contractor Nation, a sales and marketing driven company dedicated to helping home improvement businesses grow and thrive. This partnership gives our company access to an incredible amount of resources in marketing, design, sales and professional development training and many other areas – far beyond that of a typical franchise company. The Junkluggers and Contractor Nation are working efficiently and closely together to help us dominate in the junk removal industry.

Company Timeline

Eco-friendly: the real deal

So many junk removal companies claim to donate or recycle the items they remove, but their walk doesn't always match their talk. At The Junkluggers, our eco-friendly mission is part and parcel of our business model, not just an empty marketing tactic. On average, our franchisees donate 70% of the items they remove and keep an average of 60 tons of waste out of landfills each year.

Our goal is to:

  • Donate or recycle as much as possible of the material we collect
  • Provide countless homes with refurbished, donated items
  • Keep all reusable waste out of landfills by 2025 by reusing, donating, recycling, and upcycling

Our branding: memorable

There's no denying that our bright neon green trucks catch the eye and stick in the mind long after they've driven by. Not only are the trucks memorable, The Junkluggers green immediately brings to mind our eco-friendly and GREEN mission to save the planet, one piece of junk at a time. Many of our franchise owners even keep running lists of each and every item they have saved from a landfill as a point of pride.

Our people: the best

The Junkluggers is comprised of a passionate, talented, fun-loving, professional team who genuinely cares about making a difference in their communities. When you come on board as a franchise owner, you become part of the family.

Our CEO likes to say, "a rising tide lifts all boats."

Our experience: top-notch

Our highly skilled and dedicated leadership team is here to provide you with top notch training resources.

What does our history mean for you?

The great news for you as a potential franchise owner is that you can rely on our past experiences and avoid many of the pitfalls Josh and his team encountered early on. As you start, you can rely on our devoted group of current owners whose own experiences of getting started with their franchises are still fresh on their minds. Our owners are readily available to lend an ear or help you through any struggles you may encounter as a budding franchise owner.

This passion to make our world a better place, combined with our valuable partnership with Contractor Nation, has really helped us stand out from the competition
