Excellent service

Excellent service. The guys arrived on time at our city address. The clean out was conducted with no fuss at all. The staff were friendly and efficient!



Highly Recommended

Charlie and his team were a pleasure to deal with, from the initial phone call through to waving off the final truck.

They were on time, extremely efficient and even worked though some pretty nasty rain to get the job completed when they said they would, and it came in very close to the initial estimate provided from just a few photos.



Outstanding Service

I've been using Charlie and his outstanding crew from Goodbye Junk for over three years now for my business and can highly recommend them as they have never let down.

Reliable, punctual and always go the extra mile.

No stress removal

I received a return phon call within 5mins of my website enquiry. Then men arrived on time and called me to say they were on their way. The price they gave me on the spot was reasonable and my thins were quickly gone. I was moving and was very relieved to have one less thing to worry about. Both men were really friendly.

I asked for their business card and would definitely recommend them.
