A business you can start today: junk removal service.
It’s hard to believe, but it’s true. You can start a junk removal service in under 24 hours. Do a little research, make a plan of attack, and start your times. Less than 24 hours later, you should be ready to hit the junk and make that cash.
First of all, it costs you nothing to get your name out there. If you understand how Craigslist works, you can stay at the top of the list of services. Craigslist is the most popular source for people who want to find junk haulers. So get on there, and do it right, so as to beat the other guys. Post an ad with your photo on it. Call the competition, posing as a potential buyer, and find out what they’re charging. Set your price 15% less than the average price of your competitors. Offer, in your ad, to beat any other bid. Craigslist is free and easy, and hugely useful if you put a little time into it.
No Equipment Costs.
Second of all, you don’t have to buy anything to get started hauling junk. If you get a gig and don’t have a truck of your own, borrow a truck from a friend or rent one from U-Haul for cheap. We’re talking $40 including gas. The rest is hustle and effort.
No Special Training Required.
Thirdly, you don’t need any special training or knowledge to start this type of small business. That’s because it’s built on skills you can only learn by doing. Here are the skills you need. Note that you won’t find these in any course catalogs, since they’re things you simply either can or can’t do. You need to deliver superior customer service, you need to be a creative problem solver, you need to be quick and efficient at the work site, you need to be an excellent communicator with a good personality, and you need to be a careful spender. That’s it. That’s why junk hauling is probably the best business to start today – it requires skills you’ve already spent years accumulating. It’s also important that you know where the dump, scrap yard, and donation centers nearest you are located.
Work Doubles Daily.
And finally, junk hauling is a good business to start because it can grow fast. If you do small jobs and enjoy them while making a profit, there is a ton of money in the big jobs. Contractors, remodelers, and property managers need junk hauled all the time. They’ve probably already had junk hauling as one of their side business ideas, but most haven’t seen it through. That’s where you come in – as a young junk hauling veteran – and where you’ll really see that cash rain in.
Do it now.
Starting a small company can be terrifying. The cost of equipment, marketing, and the special skills you might need make lots of great small business ideas fail to leave the runway. Junk hauling is one of those different types of businesses to start – one of the small business ideas that costs you almost zero dollars in marketing, equipment, and training.
