Chris and his helper were friendly, courteous, on time, honest and gracious. They even swept up the floor when they were done. I would wholeheartedly recommend them again for anyone who needed junk removed or any hauling.
Description of Work
We had an INCREDIBLE amount of junk that had been piling up for years. Several tennants had left the building and left the basement full of junk. They were very careful to identify what could be recycled and what should be disposed of.

They did a great job. They gave me an estimate over the phone and they were pretty close when they completed the job. They were quick as they were done within 30-45 minutes. They were very courteous and kind. I would use them again and recommend them to others.
Description of Work
They removed the cabinet TV and took away the things from the garage and hauled them away from the rafters. They hauled the things that were heavy and the ones the garbage people would not take with them.

In addition, Chris is extremely courteous. I highly recommend anyone to call Chris for hauling/removal.
Description of Work
I had a huge old dryer that had to be removed from a small space and taken down stairs to the outside. Chris and his employee were remarkable in how quickly they responded and also how they were able to do the job quickly and efficiently, with no scrapes to my house or the inside of our 1890 foyer.

Chris, his helper and his wife worked hard for 2 hours to haul these items away, getting them out of a basement with narrow steps. One old washer/dryer set were 29" inch monsters. Chris disassembled them in order to get them out of the basement. He mentioned that he forgot to bring some tools that would have made the job a bit easier, but nothing stopped him from getting the job done! Chris originally quoted $180 - $250 for the job, but did it for the low end of the estimate. All in all, Chris did a great job at a fair price. He also was very responsive and punctual. If you need hauling, call Chris.
Description of Work
Hauled away 2 old washers, 2 dryers, a dishwasher, 1 large and 1 small air conditioner, and a garage door opener.

I called Chris at 9:20am, and at 9:45 he called me back to tell me the work could be done that afternoon. He was very good at calling me to let me know of any delays in his arrival window. He arrived with a co-worker and they had a difficult job of removing the broken couch but managed it nicely. The removal of the bedroom set went well, and for an additional $20, they replaced the broken couch with another (again not an easy job). This was agreed to in advance when the original call was made. Chris says he likes to look after things and help people out, and this was a big help to me. Entire removal took about an hour.
Description of Work
Removal and disposal of broken 8 1/2 foot couch. Removal and disposal of three-piece bedroom set.(Double bed frame, mattress and box springs, nightstand, 5 1/2 foot 12 drawer dresser with attached mirror. Replace broken couch with stored second couch from basement.

I called looking for an estimate on hauling away a large pile of broken-up concrete. The owner told me he would come by within the hour, take a look at the job, and give me a quote. I never heard from him again.

FRANK, THE GUY WITH THE TRUCK, WAS SCHEDULED TO ARRIVE AT 5. HE CALLED ME AT WORK AT 3 OR SO TO LET ME KNOW HE COULD GET THERE EARLY, AND DID SO. HE WORKED QUICKLY AND EFFICIENTLY, AND WAS NICE. I ALSO APPRECIATED THE FACT THAT THE COMPANY WAS ABLE TO SCHEDULE MY JOB THE VERY DAY I CALLED, SINCE I HAD FLOOR GUYS COMING THE NEXT DAY AND HADN'T REALIZED THERE WAS CONSTRUCTION DEBRIS UNTIL THE NIGHT BEFORE. CD GAVE ME A GOOD PRICE FOR THE WORK, AS WELL.

AS THEIR BUSINESS CARD READS: ''WE WILL REMOVE ANYTHING, JUST ABOUT.'' CHRIS, HIS WIFE, AND ANOTHER WORKER REMOVED AN UNORGANIZED HEAP OF DEBRIS THAT COVERED THE FLOOR OF A 2-CAR GARAGE AND WAS ABOUT 2-3 FEET TALL IN LESS THAN 3 HOURS. THE BUSINESS OWNER, CHRIS, WAS PROMPT IN BOTH HIS INITIAL VISIT TO GIVE ME AN ESTIMATE OF THE COST OF THE JOB, AND HIS SECOND VISIT TO ACTUALLY REMOVE THE DEBRIS. HE AND HIS WIFE, AND THE OTHER WORKER, WERE ALL VERY PLEASANT AND POLITE. THEY COMPLETED THE JOB QUICKLY AND EVEN SWEPT OUT THE GARAGE WHEN THEY WERE DONE. CHRIS CHARGED EXACTLY WHAT HE HAD QUOTED, EVEN THOUGH IT SEEMED LIKE THERE WAS MORE DEBRIS THAN HE ORIGINALLY ESTIMATED. I WOULD DEFINITELY CALL THEM AGAIN SHOULD THE NEED ARISE.
Description of Work
DEBRIS REMOVAL FROM GARAGE AND YARD. DEBRIS CONSISTED OF WOOD, METAL, DRYWALL SCRAPS, OTHER CONSTRUCTION DEBRIS AN UNWANTED DOOR, SHELVING AND PLANTERS.
