PhillyJunk – 1, Winter – 0

By |2011-11-28T10:37:48-07:00November 28th, 2011|Featured, Random News, Uncategorized|

When the season turns from fall to winter, it’s common for most people to delay their junking needs until the weather is more conducive to physical labor. After all, who wants to move heavy furniture and dispose of trash while wearing hoodies and knit caps?

The answer: PhillyJunk. Several weeks ago, when the first snow of the new season unexpectedly struck the Philadelphia area, the PhillyJunk crew was undeterred, filling multiple trucks in Upper Darby despite the harsh elements. While the conditions were not ideal, the crew took every necessary precaution in ensuring the junk removal was done as safe and efficient as possible.

One of the benefits of using our junk hauling service is we pick up junk right where it sits, making your lives that much easier, especially in the cold. While you stay warm in your Snuggies, our crew works regardless of the conditions. It’s not something we boast […]

PhillyJunk: Where Everyone Knows Your Name

By |2018-03-27T12:34:15-07:00October 25th, 2011|Random News, Uncategorized|

phillyjunk operatorOne of the unique qualities of the PhillyJunk experience is the interaction between the customers and our team. We take tremendous pride in treating people the way we’d appreciate if we were on the other side. Whether it’s calling before our scheduled junk removal appointment to confirm our arrival time (something many junk haulers regularly fail to do), communicating with the utmost respect, or simply keeping a light-hearted tone throughout the junk removal process, we generally leave an indelible mark on those we service.

We often have repeat customers who reference our team members by name, which makes our job feel less like work and more like we’re dealing with friends or family members. One customer in particular (we’ll call him ‘Chuck’ for privacy purposes) knows each member of the Philly Junk team by memory.

Junk: The Circle of Life

By |2018-03-27T12:34:15-07:00October 17th, 2011|Random News|

Junk is a relative term, since one man’s trash is another’s treasure.

Just this past week, at an estate cleanout in Havertown, PA, the PhillyJunk crew was tasked with the removal of debris from a classic townhouse on a crowded street. As the team hauled away the bulky items — couches, refrigerators, cabinets, furniture, appliances, etc. — the neighbors aligned the street for a firsthand view of the removal. As the items were transported from the home, the spectators became participants, often asking if they could partake in some of the more useful junk. Always a proponent for civic involvement, Philly Junk happily helped those inquiring take away their requested items. A mother received a a queen-sized bed for her daughter; a seven-year-old child was the new owner of a Fisher Price basketball set; a musician added a cello to her vast musical set. The enjoyment on their faces provided another perk […]

Bala Cynwyd, PA September 15, 2011 — PhillyJunk, a family owned and operated residential and commercial junk removal company, was contracted to help prepare the Willow Grove Naval Air Base for the closing of their station. “Our job was to remove everything that has been left and no longer needed by other facilities,” states Marty Ingram, President of PhillyJunk. “After 60 years of operation and numerous buildings on the campus we removed a sizeable amount of material which included cleaning out airplane hangars, office buildings, barracks and other facilities. We used a variety of tractor trailers, flat beds trailers and various sized box trucks and a crew of about 15-20 men to remove all of the accumulated junk. We even removed the long standing naval base signs.”

“The junk removal project was extensive and utilized all of our commercial division resources at the time,” states Ingram. […]
