Nice To Meet You!
Junk Away is a family owned and operated business that started on Florida's Emerald Coast in 2008. Jim and Carleton--a father-son pair--came up with the concept years before, however, while Carleton was still in high school. Where could we find someone to haul away unused and unneeded stuff? Where do you take that old grill that is burnt out? What about those old mattresses? And, above all, the old hot tub sitting in the backyard that hasn't been used in years? Thus, Junk Away was born.
We started out doing odds and ends jobs a couple days a week. Jim worked full-time and Carleton, after he graduated from high school, moved to Pensacola to pursue a degree in Fine Arts. As time progressed, however, we realized that there were so many people like us who needed help removing items from their homes and businesses and Junk Away became a full-time operation. Jim handles the day-to-day operations and scheduling. Marcia, the mom, oversees finances; Lindsay, the daughter, works on marketing and advertising; and Bob, the grandpa, is an advisor and consultant.
We are blessed beyond belief that what was once a small idea has turned into a business that has helped so many people. Thank you to our family, friends, and customers for supporting us and for making us love going to work every single day!
