Junk removal is a service that has continued to be in demand and has shown no signs of slowing down since we began operating in 2004. The industry has proved to be recession-proof and is safe from being replaced by technological advancements. People will continue to accumulate more and more stuff each year and we will continue to go into their homes and businesses and lug it away for them!

Performance Refund

We are in this with you and we truly believe you will succeed as a Junkluggers owner if you follow our proven system. We are even willing to put our money where our mouth is. If your base territory fails to reach a total gross revenue of $180,000 during your first eighteen months of operation, then you may terminate your franchise agreement with us and we will refund 50% of your initial fee for the base territory.*

Performance Incentive

We also strongly believe in rewarding our franchise partners for a job well done. We are here to support you every step of the way and are happy to add a little extra encouragement to keep you motivated to grow your business! If your base territory generates at least $500,000 of cumulative gross revenue during the first eighteen months of operation, then we will pay you a performance incentive of $8,000!**

As for how much you can earn, we are a bit limited by franchise law in what we can disclose, but please see the charts below for more information. All franchises that started operating in 2013 have experienced double digit growth in their second full 12 months of operations:
