Local Entrepreneur Launches an Eco-Friendly Junk Removal Service
MARIETTA, Ga. – Junk King, the nation’s leading junk removal company earning nationwide acclaim for its unrivaled customer service and incomparable eco-friendly approach, announced their expansion into Cobb County with local entrepreneur, Harry Van Buren in partnership with his son, Jimmy Van Buren.
Serving the Cobb County community, Junk King’s affordable junk removal services are now available to residents and businesses throughout the area. Van Buren has been with the Junk King family since 2011, when he opened the North Atlanta location. He also recently opened a new location in Gwinnett County. Jimmy will be running day to day operations, bringing his extensive experience running operations, training teams, maintaining the trucks and recycling, meaning he is fully equipped for this new responsibility. A graduate of Cumberland University, he received his Bachelor of Science with an emphasis on computer information systems.
“I’ve had a lot of time to familiarize myself with the operations and best practices at Junk King, so I feel quite ready to take this next step in my career,” said Jimmy Van Buren. “It’s very exciting to take on this new responsibility as we expand into Cobb County. My family and I can’t wait to extend our services to a new group of customers.”
In addition to the company’s professionalism, eco-friendly recycling and award-winning customer service, businesses and residents alike choose Junk King because of the brand’s state-of-the-art technology systems that allow customers to schedule a pick-up in real time. With the online booking system all it takes is a few clicks and within a matter of minutes Junk King can be scheduled and the job can be completed.
“As we were looking to expand our presence in Georgia, we knew Harry and Jimmy have the right knowledge of the area to help us do it,” said Michael Andreacchi, CEO and co-founder of Junk King Franchise Systems. “They have been enthusiastic about expanding into Cobb County. The experience they’ve already accumulated during his time at Junk King will be invaluable, and I have no doubt the community will feel that passion come through with each junk removal they and their team do.”
Unlike the majority of junk removal services, pricing for Junk King is based on the amount of junk removed. The brand’s trucks are twenty percent larger than the industry average, meaning there is no job it cannot handle. Sixty percent of the junk collected is recycled, rather than being dropped at landfills.
