Spring cleaning- need to have junk hauled away.

Does anyone know of any company/service/anyone who would be willing to come and pick up junk, and haul it away? We are cleaning out our sheds, basements, garage, etc. We are wanting to get rid of things such as riding lawnmowers, chests, bureau- heavy and bulky items. We are looking for anyone who would be interested, locally. We live in Charlotte Hall.

Thanks to everyone who visits this thread!

unfortunately, these items are not salvageable! Riding lawnmower is around 15 years old, chest of drawers can't be restored, it is over 40 years old, etc. The only thing we may have that might be worth something to someone, is a pair of kayaks.

I used 1-800-GOT-JUNK about a year and a half ago. They take a lot of stuff, but they are a little pricey I think....but I didn't shop around, I just wanted stuff gone. You may want to call them to see if they indeed will take everything you want to get rid of.

I saw a truck the other day that made me laugh. It was, 'College Hunks Hauling Junk'. That was the company!

Looks like "Old Fat Guys with a Truck" will be losing customers.

Hi. Are the kayaks usable? I'm on the lookout for a couple.

yes, they are in great shape. They are not made of wood, but fiberglass (?) plastic of some sort. They are yellow and are in a desperate need of cleaning of some sort. They have been stored in a worn-down shed! We bought them years ago for when our girls were young. They are for the lighter weights. I weigh, well alot (lol) and I could not use them. They would not hold my weight. We have 2.

I also have a basket-ball thingy and some bikes if anyone is interested. I would gladly give them away...hubby will probably want a little money for them!

I wouldn't mind stopping by to see them. I was going to private message you but I can't figure out how, lol.

I had a friend call the 1 800 Got Junk people and they said they would not come all the way down here (she is on McIntosh Road) - maybe you'll have better luck in CH, after you sell the kayaks, of course. :)

thanks for letting me know. I have not called them yet. I would be extremely happy to get money for our kayaks! I have never been a person to "sell" things. I like to donate, but hubby likes money :)
