123JUNK
began in early 2008 when our founder, Collin Wheeler, was working in residential sales for a DC moving company. At 23 years old, the recent college graduate was struggling to meet his monthly quotas as a sales consultant. While spending his time convincing people to book their moves with him, one thing became quite clear; people didn’t want to pay a moving company to move items that they no longer wished to keep.

Many of these people had even tried to give away their unwanted items to various charities, only to discover that these organizations were very selective in what they would take. In addition, most of them required that the items were to be moved to the front curb for pickup, putting an additional burden on the homeowner. Wait times for these organizations sometimes involved weeks or months – that’s right, months – before they could get a truck out to their property.

An Idea Becomes a Reality

People needed a stress-free, environmentally responsible way to get rid of their old stuff. Collin saw this fresh opportunity, grabbed his life savings, (which as a 23 year old, was not as notable as it may seem), bought an old dump truck and 123JUNK was born.

Since its inception, 123JUNK has grown quickly yet progressively, adding one or two vehicles per year to our fleet. Today, you can’t miss the distinctive look of our shiny red trucks on the way to another haul.

“I couldn't believe how fast you emptied my condo! I called on late Thursday afternoon, and by Friday at noon, it was broom swept! The best part - a donation receipt from Habitat ReStore was waiting in our mailbox when we arrived at our new home a week later. Talk about following through on your promise!”
