Stuff accumulates! Most people call it junk but we find that the majority can be reused, repurposed or recycled. We donate useable items, such as furniture, household goods, clothes and working appliances, to civic and faith-based charities. QuickFix Junk then mails you the charitable donation receipt for your tax records — a win-win scenario for all parties.
Items that have no remaining useful life are sorted for recycling. Everything from broken hairdryers to large appliances are taken to the appropriate vendors. The goal is to keep as much as possible out of our landfills. We want to be a good steward to our environment and hope you appreciate the extra efforts we take on your behalf.
QuickFix Junk is a locally-owned and operated company. We are not a franchise so we do not have the additional overhead — lowering the cost to you. When you call you will speak with the owner, not a call center representative many states away.
QuickFix Junk has invested in the best equipment to assure superior service for you. Our covered box truck is larger that most and can safely carry 1,000 cubic feet of junk. Our competitors max out at around half our space. This means that even the largest jobs can be handled much faster with fewer trips between loads. The truck is equipped with a lift gate that can handle over 1,500 pounds. We bring a heavy duty appliance truck, hand truck and furniture dolly to every job — so that we can safely and carefully maneuver large items out of your space.
We look forward to answering your questions and helping you reclaim lost space. Just stand back, point out what needs to go — we will take care of everything. Once done we're done moving, we'll leave your space tidy and broom clean.
Our service area includes Mountain Brook, Homewood, Vestavia Hills, Birmingham, Hoover, Pelham, Alabaster and all other municipalities in Jefferson and Shelby Counties. Depending upon the scope of your job we can accommodate outlying counties as well.
Do you charge for estimates?
No. We provide written, no-obligation quotes free of charge.
Do I need to move anything myself?
No, we take care of everything for you. We can even help you move furniture and other things around, if needed. There may be a nominal added charge for the extra time and labor but we are happy to accommodate your needs — just ask.
What does it cost?
Most competing firms charge by estimating load size — 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 of a truck. We believe that is a function of how well they load their truck, plus the size of their vehicle, and it may end up costing you more. We charge by the volume of the goods that go actually go on the truck — not how well we pack them. We're always happy to provide a helpful "guesstimate" over the phone, but we need to actually see your items to provide a firm quote. Some things that affect pricing include: ease of access and parking, stairs and floor level, and other factors that affect the time to remove items. Please visit our pricing page to get more information.
What do you do with the items you remove?
We sort all goods into three categories: useable, recyclable and disposable. Useable goods are donated to local charities like The Jimmie Hale Mission and The Community Furniture Bank. Recyclable items are delivered to the appropriate vendors and the remainder is taken to the Mount Olive Landfill for proper disposal.
Are you licensed and insured?
QuickFix Junk, LLC is fully-licensed and carries comprehensive general liability insurance. Copies are carried on the truck and available for your review.
Why did you start this business?
Our founder, Ricky Bruni, started the business after his parents moved from their home of 50 years to a senior living community. He and his siblings experienced the challenges his mom and dad faced in deciding what belongings to keep and what would actually fit in their new place. Their biggest concern was how to get rid of their remaining stuff when they sold the house. Fortunately, they found a local specialist to pack up and haul away all of the remaining unclaimed useable items and the unwanted junk. With over 25 years helping families as a mortgage and financial advisor, Ricky realized that he wanted to help other families avoid the same stressful situation his had just experienced — while enjoying a little more time away from the office.
