hat do people do when they've bought a new sofa and they need to get rid of
the old one? Or if after clearing out their garage, they find a mountain of
junk that they need to get rid of? Well they could take it to ther nearest junkyard
or landfill by car but that may take 10 trips or more and that's more carrying,
not to mention the time wasted and the potential damage to the interior of their
cars. Enter you - and your Haulage Service!

Transportation small business ideas or Haulage / Garbage Collection
If you have a truck and you've got a good, strong back, then this is the ideal
business for you on weekends and spare time. People always need to move things
around - many times, it's big, bulky things like sofas and tables. If you do
this on a full time basis, then you'll need to get the proper approval from
your local government. Many times, a valid truck driver's license will do. When
people pay you to get rid of their junk, ask them if they have any objections
to you salvaging any of their throw-aways because there's always potential in
their junk! If they insist you take if to the landfill, then it's in your best
interest and reputation to follow their wishes. Most customers will just be
glad you're helping them get rid of the stuff and won't mind what you do with
it after you leave their homes.
Many Haulage Service providers also have a network of junkyard owners who will
pay for other people's junk. People often throw away items like electrical appliances
and furniture that are just a little bit worn or old fashioned. To the junkyard
collector though, this is money! A little fixing and maybe a little paint and
touch-up here and there and voila, the item could be good as new and can be
sold to the lower income folk for a small profit. It all depends on your resourcefulness
in how you "get rid" of junk. With a little bit of hard work and extra
travel, you could make a trip to the recycling centre and sell off the recyclable
stuff. Everything else that can't be re-used? Well, it's the landfill for them.
There's money in junk. You just have to look for it.
