Now Is The Time to Join The Junk Hauling Industry
Becoming a junk hauler might not be the dream of every little kid, but the grown-up fact is owning an on-demand junk hauling service is a low risk, high opportunity venture . Everyone has junk. And at certain points, whether it’s due to divorce, moving, downsizing, home improvements or a million other reasons, they need to get rid of it quickly and easily, which means junk hauling is largely a recession-proof business.
But on-demand junk hauling offers more than steady work…it is a steadily growing industry. The market has expanded rapidly over the past five years, and has a projected 5% annual growth expected through 2020. That means BumbleJunk franchises are part of an estimated $1.4 billion service sector. This growth will continue as on-demand junk hauling becomes more recognized as an essential service concept.
The BumbleJunk Way:
Taking The Sting Out ofRunning Your Own Business
Besides being busy as a bee as part of a growing industry, owning a BumbleJunk franchise sets you apart from other entrepreneurs because of our mission to make a difference.
As an eco-friendly operation, we are committed to making a positive impact on the environment. So as a franchise owner, you will have a hands-on role in bettering the planet, too. The BumbleJunk difference means recycling whatever is possible from every junk removal, including metal, paper, plastic, electronic waste and appliances. This not only cuts down on waste sent to landfills, it also conserves the energy required to manufacture new materials, and reduces greenhouse gases and emissions from incinerators.
In addition, our junk removal franchises give back to the community by donating reusable items to local charities. As a BumbleJunk franchise partner, you help others as you help yourself.
