If you’re just starting your new trash removal business, I’ll bet you could use a few more customers. Here are a few insider secrets to grow your business faster.
First – college move-outs. If you live in a college town, a lot of students leave for the summer. This can bring a lot of business for you, because most students don’t have a truck or van to haul their furniture away. Run a small ad in local student papers offering a “student discount. “ Be sure to give students a business card after you’ve helped them move out, because many of them will call your for help when they return to school in the fall.
Next – if you want to get a lot of work in a hurry, offer foreclosure cleanup services to local realtors. Boom or bust, there are always foreclosed homes that need to be emptied.
Next – offer recycling services. A lot of what you haul away can be recycled, and most customers are happy to pay extra for this service.
Not only is it good for the environment, but you can make good money too.
Next – be sure to get magnetic signs for your truck or van. You’ll be amazed at how many new customers this “rolling billboard” will bring you – folks who just happened to see you on the road.Best of all, you can get a pair of magnetic signs for around a hundred bucks. Just do an online search to find the best prices.

Last – give away free notepads to every potential customers. I pass out my business card and a custom notepad with my business name – Junk Be Gone – and contact information.

Before long, it will be burned deep in their memory, and you’ll be the one they call when they need someone to haul away that old broken recliner!
