Free Quotes

If you are moving or have things around the house that need to be hauled away, College H.U.N.K.S. can be a great asset. One great advantage with this company is the offer for a free quote on moving or junk removal pricing. Take advantage of that as you compare with other companies to find the best service.

Moving Services

College H.U.N.K.S. is a unique moving service as it provides a number of different unique services to better your moving experience or help you to declutter around your home or apartment. Offered services include the following:

  • Complete moving services — This includes packing services for both packing and unpacking, moving supplies including moving boxes, comprehensive moving checklists, junk removal and disposal, storage solutions, and hourly labor services.
  • Home and apartment moves — These services include loading and unloading services, packing services, local and long-distance transportation, donation pickup, recycling, and junk removal.
  • Office and business moving — This could include moving furniture, moving to another floor, or relocating to a new building/location. Professional movers trained for commercial moving will make sure that your office is professionally packed, labeled, loaded, transported, unloaded, unpacked, and arranged exactly how you want it.

Junk Removal

It is not uncommon to find a number of things around your home when moving or just when cleaning up and you don't have the need for any longer. College H.U.N.K.S. can take the following items:

  • furniture
  • appliances
  • yard waste
  • electronics
  • carpeting
  • mattresses
  • tires
  • office equipment
  • scrap metal
  • hot tubs
  • renovation debris
  • attic cleanouts

Along with taking these items, these services are also provided:

  • garage clean-out
  • seasonal removal
  • storm recovery

  • commercial junk removal

If you would like to learn more about the pricing for these junk removal services, you can reach out to a customer service representative for free quotes.

Additional Services

College H.U.N.K.S. provides a number of other services. These are not common services for other removal companies or moving franchisees in the moving industry.

  • Storage services — Depending on the type of moving and storage services needed, College H.U.N.K.S. has a number of storage options available for customers. You can choose between indoor storage units, indoor storage with climate control options, drive-up storage units, and outdoor storage units. Facilities differ by location so you may need to make sure that the storage will be of the quality that you would like before signing anything.
  • Student moving — College H.U.N.K.S. are familiar with college campuses and are used to the complications that come when moving as a college student. Services that can be expected are removal of clutter and trash from your dorm or apartment, moving items into your new location, and helping you store items that you may not be able to take home for the break if you are traveling to visit family.

Locations

If you are looking for a local moving company, it is possible that College H.U.N.K.S. has a location near you. This company has locations all over the United States as well as a number in Canada. For information on locations, you can enter your zip code online and find the nearest one to you.

The Bad

  • Donation Pickups
  • Damage
  • Pricing

Donation Pickups

Though donating items to charity is commendable, it may not be advised to do this through a moving company such as College H.U.N.K.S. as a number of customer reviews mentioned finding the items that they sent to charity with this company advertised for sale online shortly after pickup. If you are looking to donate and want to make sure that actually happens, look into to borrowing a truck or vehicle so that you can do it yourself. If you don’t do it yourself, it is likely that these items will be sold for profit.

Damage

As is common among moving services, damages do occur during the moving process. Customer reviews reflect occasional issues with damages and employees refusing to accept responsibility for them. If you are worried about your belongings being damaged, you will either need to pack everything yourself, rent a moving truck, or find a company with a replacement guarantee for damaged goods.

Pricing

Receiving free moving quotes is a great perk, but having additional costs added to this original bill is not a fun experience. It is not uncommon for the original bid to be significantly lower than the final price. Customers have mentioned that several hundreds of dollars were added to their bills at the time of moving because of miscalculations by company representatives.

The Bottom Line

If you are looking for a moving service or for someone to haul away some of your junk, don’t be afraid to reach out and get a quote from College H.U.N.K.S. along with other local companies. We recommend this company for its moving and storage services, but not for its junk removal, donation, and recycling services. The moving and storage services provided are priced similarly to other similar companies while the removal, recycling, and donation prices have been fairly higher than we believe necessary. It is likely much less expensive to remove the items yourself.

Overall, we would recommend getting a bid and going through all of the small details of the move to ensure that the bid is as accurate as possible. Whether you are making a local, long-distance, college, corporate, or business move, College H.U.N.K.S. Hauling Junk & Moving is there to help take the stress out of your moving experience.

The booking experience was seamless. The guys were totally professional. They explained the pricing policy and answered all my questions. I received a quote prior to the removal of the items. They arrived on time. The payment process was easy and I received my receipt within minutes of the transaction.
