Common Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

How does Downstream price junk removal?
We price based on how much space your items take up in the service providers truck. Downstream standardizes pricing of all sellers by sizing in total cubic yardage. This providers transparent price comparisons. We break it down into 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 of a truck load, all the way up to a full truck load. The average junk seller truck holds the equivalent of six pickup trucks or 15-16 cubic yards. Select haulers trucks can hold a "Mega" load which is equivalent to 20 cubic yards.

All prices vary based on location, season, local disposal fees and day scheduled. Many junk companies will provide a minimum charge for their teams to remove your item.

Downstream's Scrapper network of individual gig workers provides single item collection services for certain items such as mattresses or TVs and tend to be less than a standard junk company minimum charge.

For materials that have a heavy cubic weight like dirt, concrete, and gravel, pricing is based on the total volume that the material takes up in the truck, up to a maximum of one foot in height for a full truck. You may hear this referred to as a "heavy" or "bed" load.
How do I cancel or change my appointment?
You can cancel or change your junk service appointment at anytime.
Can you remove large or bulky items?
Yes! Our junk haulers will remove large or bulky items as long as they are not on the prohibited items list. Additional fees may apply for extra heavy items which require more than 2 workers to lift such as a pool table, hot tub, or exercise equipment.
Can I have an exact price before you arrive?
Unfortunately, we can’t give you an exact price until your service provider arrives. Since the price is based on the space used in the back of the truck, they must see the items in person before confirming the quoted price.

For select single item removals, we can provide more accurate estimates before the appointment, but the final price will always be confirmed onsite with the junk hauler. The junk hauler is responsible for communicating updates to pricing while onsite with the customer and directly in the Downstream app.
Can you remove my junk if I am not present?
It mostly depends on where the junk is located. If the items are easily accessible and your payment method is on file, we do not require you to be present in order to remove your junk.
Are you licensed and insured?
Yes, Downstream is a compliant vendor on numerous credentialing programs such as net vendor, real page, and RMIS. We carry multiple insurance policies, background check contractors in our Scrapper network, and work with only the most reliable local junk removal companies in every market.
