We have exciting news! Thanks to our amazing, supportive customer base we’ve experienced substantial growth over the last couple of years. Now, we are sending two of our best rockstar Veteran employees to Salem, Oregon on an Employment Deployment to kickstart our operations in that area.
The bonds of military camaraderie and friendship are strong. Trevor and Curtis are not only colleagues, but close friends. Trevor served in the U.S. Army on active duty from 2007 to 2010 as an infantry mortarman and Curtis served in the U.S. Army as a combat medic. They are trusted employees who have been with us for years. They’ve earned countless fans here in Portland based on their can-do attitudes and exceptional customer service. We can’t wait for our new customers in Salem to get to meet them, too.
Have you ever wished you could snap your fingers and all the stuff taking up valuable space in your home, garage, yard, office, or job site would just disappear? That’s what Trevor and Curtis do, but there’s no magic involved. Just two hard working local Veterans to tackle the job for you in a snap. Isn’t it time to let Trevor and Curtis help you reclaim your space and peace of mind?
It is that time of year yet again. After a long winter, the glorious SUN!!!! comes out in Oregon. Oregonians (briefly) hang up our heavy raincoats. We open our windows, hunt for our gardening tools in the garage, and break out our shorts and t-shirts.
And then we realize- it’s spring cleaning time!
From scrubbing baseboards to turning over your mattress, spring cleaning can be a big project. It’s totally normal to accumulate some extra items, some branches in the yard, and put holes in your well-worn clothes in the winter months. One of the best things to do during spring cleaning is to declutter. We recommend going through your home, garage, closet, and yard to declutter and minimize your possessions.
Our crew at G.I. Junk Removal would love to help you with some of the heavy lifting. We will come to you on your own time to remove those extra items to clear up space in your home and your life.
We give you more time for you to get outside and soak up those rays!

Getting rid of things isn’t always an easy process. Whether you are downsizing, removing items after a loved one’s passing, cleaning up after a messy tenant, or taking care of the aftermath of a hoarding experience- the removal of unwanted items may bring up a lot of uncomfortable feelings. These feelings can include grief, sadness, anger, and shame.
The things in our lives may hold a lot of emotional and psychological value. As humans, we all experience these connections to materials around us to some degree or another. Some people have a much harder time letting go of things than others, but they are no less deserving of peaceful living space.
The New York Times provides in an article that the “American Psychiatric Association estimates that 2 to 5 percent of the population could be classified as compulsive hoarders, people who suffer from a disorder that impedes their ability to discard things, regardless of value.”
Hoarding and other similar situations can be difficult to address on your own. Regardless of the reason you need help getting rid of unwanted items- G.I. Junk Removal is a shame-free zone. We do not judge our clients- no matter the reason or the state of the property.
We strongly believe in having a compassionate approach. We are here to help, no matter what you have experienced. Don’t be afraid to reach out to us.
