The United States produces around 250 million tons of garbage, out of which over 80 million tons are made up of reusable items – although only 34% are recycled.
Most people would not be aware of this, but junk removal has been around for far longer than before Americans had started filling up their storage sheds and garages. As a result, junk removal industries have been booming due to the large demand for its services. And out of all of them, companies like LoadUp are one of the few businesses that have been effectively meeting their customers’ needs without fail.
LoadUp is a revered on-demand junk removal service provider – the first one of its kind. As a waste management company, it utilizes crowd technology to arrange a network of independently licensed and insured junk-hauling professionals.
Founded in 2014 by Greg Workmon, LoadUp focuses its operations on providing junk removal services in over 45 states while also offering its clients roll-off dumpster rental services in the Atlanta region, where its headquarters is currently located.
One of the most impressive facilities of LoadUp is that it makes use of proprietary technology as the source of its business operations. This includes its online booking system that provides free and upfront prices to customers without an on-site estimate requirement. In addition, they also offer a Driver app that enables independent contractors to view, accept, and complete junk removal jobs. For the price, they make sure that it is based on item-by-item for their services.
LoadUp serves as a residential and commercial junk removal business with a well-made business model that includes seeking and using sustainable and eco-friendly disposal alternatives through recycling and donating salvageable items to charities in the local and national regions.
Another interesting thing to note is that LoadUp made sure to develop an effective response to the COVID-19 crisis. The company prompted their customers to select outdoor pickup services in order to diminish the direct face-to-face contact between the customers and drivers to make sure that social distancing is maintained throughout the entire process. And whenever customers would utilize this service, LoadUp ensures that it provides safe, no-contact in-home services to them.
The company’s notable work has significantly boosted its popularity over the last couple of years. For example, in 2018, LoadUp was reported to have diverted more than 2 million pounds of junk from landfills through recycling. As a result, it was able to achieve a milestone with over 160 cities across the United States that were covered by more than 250 driver teams.
Moreover, the company has also had the opportunity to collaborate with other organizations like One Tree to support green initiatives. The alliance made between the two has ensured that for every junk removal, assembly, or even property clean-out order on LoadUp, one dollar will be donated to the organization that will then be used for donation purposes for planting trees in North America, Asia, Africa, Europes, and many more places all over the globe.
