Why Choose G.I. Junk Removal?

When you choose G.I. Junk Removal for your junk removal and hauling needs, you are supporting the Veterans who own and operate our company. Also, because we are local and independently owned, your money stays right here in our community. When you use a large franchise like 1-800-Got-Junk, College Hunks, Junk Kings, etc, a hefty portion of the money you spend leaves the Portland Metro area for good.

Let us be clear, though. We don't view support of our Veterans as an act of charity. (Read more about that HERE) What we know to be true is that the men and women who have served our country are dedicated to service, and work incredibly well as teams. They aren't afraid to get dirty, and they won't shrug off a challenge. Our shared histories of service and sacrifice prepare us to work hard together to get the job done right.
