Alright, guys. Another episode of Junk Removal Made Simple by Junk Removal Authority. I had a great day today, awesome day today. It’s midnight on a Friday night. I was out just a little while ago with some friends, watching the Duke Carolina game. We’ve left before the game was over. The last time I checked, a minute left in the game and Carolina was up. It was Duke though, so no telling what happened, but I had a great day. Just a few hours ago at night, I was on the phone with a guy in California who’s going to let us manage his AdWords campaign, and we’re super excited to see what we can really do to help blow his business up. He’s pretty new to Junk Removal Business, he’s been in business about a year. What our plan is after a few months, after all of this business starts rolling in is to actually have him join us on the video we will put out on YouTube. So, I am super excited to have the opportunity to really manage his campaign and leverage the $300,000 worth of mistakes we’ve made for over six years. Maybe we can recoup a little bit of that money back, while helping just a tremendous number of Junk Removal Businesses all throughout the country, all throughout the U.S. and Canada. We have really done good on AdWords, and we’ve built our business on AdWords. I’m just rambling on here, but really, I’m just I’m super excited to work with this guy and see what we can do for his business.
Today in Junk Removal Made Simple, we are talking about Vehicle Selection. That is something I get asked about quite often on junkremovalauthority.com. Check out junkremovalauthority.com right now. There should be a blog post on Vehicle Selection that will be kind of add some reading material to this video right here. We’re going to cover some stuff, and let’s keep rolling on it. A lot of people wonder what type they should get. What I mean by that is should we go with a dump truck, a dump trailer and pick up, a dumpster truck – it would be like a roll off a switch and go, a hook lift. Those are going to be your three serious options.
Remember, there is nobody out here giving this kind of information. YouTube was around when we started in 2011, obviously, but it was a lot smaller than it is now, and there was no junk mob, there wasn’t a Junk Removal Authority, a Junk Removal University, a Dallas Fort Worth Junk Removal. It was out here giving you all this information for free. The only option we had on getting information running a Junk Removal Business was to be in position to purchase a Got Junk College Hunks, and at the time I got Junk Hunks College, and Junk King, we were about the only serious franchises out there. Now there’s about eight or ten of the damn things. The franchises range anywhere from $40000 to $115,000 for a franchise.
I was a manager of a roller skating rink, I had $15,00 dollars in my name, I raced a sober truck race car for a couple years on NASCAR style race cars on some oval tracks. I right out of money, sold all the race cars, got a little bit of money out of it, but for the most part I was flat broke. We started with a two-wheel drive single cab Chevy pickup truck with a trailer that was meant to hold ATVs. The walls on the side of that trailer were that tall. It was scary. I look back now and I shudder on the stuff we do on that trailer. As big as we told now, as far as it is refined, as a professional as we are now, we were so unprofessional. We were more unprofessional than any of you all could ever dream of being. In that trailer, we would stack walls this high, 6×12 trailer with walls this high. We would stack stuff 5 feet high on this thing. I’d have ratchet straps run in all different directions, and it wasn’t a dump, so we hand loaded it and we had to get to the dump. Actually, we had to go to the dump and hand unload, and when I say the dump, we were actually using the citizen’s convenience centers – it’s generally available just to the residential customers. Once we got a trailer we felt we were extremely well off when we bought a $1200 6×12 trailer with three-foot sides. At that point we put signs on the side of that trailer – it would say Triangle Removal, that was our name that we started with was Triangle Removal – and we would have nice polo shirts on along with the khaki pants, and we’d go to job sites. Most people we show up to, we didn’t really show pictures of our truck and trailer set up so they thought they were hiring like some Got Junk or something like that by that time I wrecked my Chevy pickup. So, at 2004 we got an f150 that we spent $4000 on, and we had a $1200 trailer, and we back up in people’s driveways, they think they’re expecting Got Junk. We crammed as much stuff in there as we could. As soon as we that house, the businesses we weren’t supposed dump in these convenient centers was just completely free, so we roll into a parking lot, we changed shirts, and we take the signs off, and we dealt with those convenient centers, slip the guys in there a little bit of money every so often so we could keep on going.
Trailers and Trucks
The only other option is just a regular trailer and a truck. You do what you got to do. Of course, you can rent like at U-Haul or something, which when you break down that’s what you need to do. If money is tight and you can’t get a backup truck, and you don’t already go and get accounts set up with a U-Haul or Penske truck, or in a place budget, or something like that to set up a rental agreement, so when your truck breaks down, you can get a much better rate by going to rent a truck. Write that down, put in on your to-do list, and get it done. Let’s talk about the different options here. The other question that kind of goes along with it is “Used or New?” Here’s the deal on Used or New, buy new if you can. Start out anyway. If you’re in a position where you’ve got enough money to purchase new, then buy new. Most of the new vehicles are going to be reliable at least up to 100,000 miles now. As long as it’s halfway taken care of, it is reliable up to at least 100,000 miles – it should be beyond, but you’re going to get at least 100,000 miles without much trouble. Downtime is the killer in this business. Renting a truck is expensive, you have to handle generally unless it’s an inexpensive dump truck, and it’s just not very professional looking when you roll up. Buy new if you can, and we’ll talk about new vehicles in a bit more detail later. Used vehicles – again we’re going to get a lot more detail on that too – but if you’re going to buy a used vehicle, try and get two of them, and try and get them relatively quickly. If you can’t buy both at the same time, get the second one just as soon as you can so you have that backup option. I’m not saying you should when you first start with your title money and purchase one used vehicle, and right of the bat purchase another. If you run out of money by doing that, then don’t go that route. Get everything started, get to a point where you get close to kind of filling up one truck, and then at that point start to look for that second truck. If you’re going to partner with Junk Removal Authority, getting our business package, or AdWords management, or any of our support services, you’re going to get so much business that you’re going to need a second used truck, or at least going to need a very reliable new truck. If you watch the videos and learn, you still should be able to be somewhat busy enough to be able to support two used trucks fairly soon.
Now, our preference is for the dump truck. We have more expertise on the dump truck. We do own a dump trailer for our demolition work. We had a bobcat, and we haul the bobcat in that dump trailer, and it also allows us to roll in those jobs to use the dump trailer to dump construction debris and stuff from the demolition projects. We do have our dump trailer that’s pulled by a 2017 or 2018 f250 that Christian drives. Dumpster trucks – we have owned a Switch-N-Go system – I do not recommend it. There are videos online, people love Switch-N-Go. Switch-N-Go are hard to teach to your team members how to use. I’m an instrument rated pilot flying an airplane, and that Switch-N-Go truck, you have to really look at it and get the angles lined up right pulled up, and that winch cable can mess up. There’s too much that can go wrong. If it runs off the tracks, if you’re even, there’s too much that can go wrong. I do not recommend the Switch-N-Go system. The hook lift – the Paul finger and similar companies make hook lifts – I’ve never owned of a hook lift truck, but I’ve seen them in operation. They’re robust, they look very tough. I don’t think you’d have very many issues with them. If you are going to go with a dumpster setup, then I’d recommend the hook lift over the Switch-N-Go. The hook lift is more expensive. I can’t remember how much more, but it is every bit of $5,000 or $6,000 more, it’s also heavier. I think the Switch-N-Go weighs 800 pounds, and the hook lift is closer to 1,600 or 2,000 pounds. You’ve got a heavier duty truck for sure. These people that are messing around – Junk Doctors and College Hunk. I think College Hunk is still an NPR. If College Hunks is watching this video, and they moved up in ours, then I sincerely apologize -, but I know Junkluggers is running around with a Switch-N-Go system NPR truck. It’s a 14.5 GVWR. My estimate is that truck, with that Switch-N-Go system empty, weighs somewhere around 12,000 pounds; give or take a few. That means they have 2,500 pounds before they’re overweight. That means they are running overweight all the time, and that’s just barely a ton and a quarter. That’s ridiculous. That’s people being cheap. If you’re going to get a dumpster truck I definitely recommend getting a higher GVWR truck anyway, but you definitely must have a higher GVWR truck, and we’re going to try to elaborate, not only from staying legal, but also from a safety aspect, from wear and tear vehicle aspect, and I’ll elaborate more on that in a bit.
Regular trailers/trucks – you do what you got to do. I love years when we were rolling around in that truck, because some people dress nice and, all we know is the franchise way, and that’s not the case. We started with a $3,500 Chevy two-door pickup truck, and then I wrecked that – I pulled out in front of somebody while I was booking a job – and then bought a $4,000 Ford F150 pickup truck. That $4,000 truck have made us $150,000 in sales, allowed us to get our first dump truck, and once you get that first dump truck, you just think it’s the greatest thing in the world. I was able to find a good deal on that in the middle recessions, so I was able to buy a 2004 used Got Junk truck for $11,500 from a guy in Jacksonville, Florida. We converted over from a Got Junk truck to a chipper truck, so it had this unique roof on, which is pretty damn cool. We were off the races on that, and that one truck we’re still on it now; old number one. It’s got 330,000 miles on it. With the exception of a fuel pump, it has never had any major issue rolling with it at all. That particular truck has a 4HE1 engine, but the fuel pump was mechanicals like $4,500 or something for fuel pump. But that truck right there has probably made us – we’ve had that truck for four years, each truck we have has made us $200,000 a year in revenues – so that trucks made us about $800,000. That’s an $11,500 investment. I loved old number one, she smokes a little right now, she doesn’t grow up about 60 miles an hour, we get calls fairly often that our truck’s billowing smoke and I said I would look into it, but she’s still going she’s. Even if the gutter blows up, the engine blows up, we will just stick another one in there and keep on running with old number one. Anyway, just do what you have to do with this regular trailer, and then just get on out of this as fast as you can to get up into either a dump truck or a dump trailer.
Looking Into Dump Trucks
Dump trucks is what we recommend. We recommend a low cab Ford truck or a cab over truck – I guess the official definition is LCF for low cab Ford. That’s like the flat ones. That’s like your Got Junks, your College Hunks, your Junkluggers flat front. The reason we recommend those trucks is because they’re so maneuverable. Remember, you’re going to have inexperienced drivers driving these things. If you go to a dump truck trailer, and like a pickup truck, you’re limiting the people you can hire. They are going to be tearing stuff up like people’s mailboxes over. Even in a maneuverable truck like this, people are going to get stuck, tear up people’s yards from time to time, hit mailboxes, and all kinds of crazy stuff. It’s going to happen a lot more in this, and in even tighter areas, there’s sometimes you can bring these look out for trucks in areas that it is very difficult to get like a 16-foot dump trailer and pickup truck. If you are going to go the dump trailer route, I do recommend a gooseneck. They are much more maneuverable in tight spaces, and it raises your work carrying capability up tremendously, and there are a lot harder for some dude to jack there when you got it on some steel or whatever when you got it sit in your lot, so goosenecks are recommended when you go this route. If you already have a pickup truck, again it depends on how your funds are, if you already have a pickup truck, then afford a dump trailer. You can buy good decent use dump trailer for like $4,000 somewhere in that range; new ones are going to be about $9,000. I’d say $4,000 is pretty good, you’re probably not getting a decent one for $4,000, probably more like $5,000 or $6,000, you’re probably going to find a good deal, but $5,000 or $6,000 figure on a dump trailer. If you already have a pick up, then that’s hard to argue with, so unless you’re going to be working your business right from the start, and on the truck very little, that’s hard to argue with. If you’re going to be on a truck for a while, that’s a good move. That’s a good move right there for sure. You got to be careful, you’re going to have to be setting limitations on maneuverability sometimes, but the majority of the jobs you’ll be able to do with a dump trailer and a pick up. I don’t know if you noticed my verbiage when I was talking about we ‘had’ a dumpster truck – we no longer do. I hated that Switch-N-Go. It’s just a bad system, it’s a cheap system, it’s thinking cheap. What do we say? If you think cheap on your system, you think cheap on your income. Switch-N-Go is cheap, and that’s what it is; it’s cheap. The other issue we had was if you’re going to have these dumpster trucks, it’s more expensive. Junkluggers does this – put a tarp on each of your bins, not on your truck. What we did was we mounted tarp to the frame, and we had these long beans that came out on the side of each truck, and it was automatic tarp with these really long arms, and then you’d hit the button and the would lower down over the bed. The problem was, again with the inexperienced drivers, is they leave the tarp down, they raised the bed up, and they bend in out of the arms. It was like $15,000 to fix it something like that. You had to replace the arm, you had to fix the well. After like the third time we had to replace that tarp, we weren’t having issues with the Switch-N-Go, we just hated the thing, but at that time we needed to sell the truck anyway, we had a huge workers comp payment we’re going to make so we just figured we’d sell it and buy another once everything recovered, because we already had big things in the work at that point. We sold that truck, got rid of it.
Offering dumpsters is a good thing when you’re first starting out, you probably wouldn’t be going into too many directions at the start, but when after you have been operational, you got people in place, and junk removal is running smoothly, you got on a nice trajectory of growth on junk removal – you can work with Junk Removal Authority, we’ve been blowing you up on AdWords management or whatever – then at that point you can look into dumpster stuff, but please just go with the hook lift truck. Yeah, they made dumpster trailers too, I’m not an expert, though. I think Dallas Fort Worth uses something now that he talks about in his videos. Anyway, it’s a neat concept, again it comes back to the whole thing that you’re going to have team members sitting there trying to back this massive heavy thing in people’s driveways. One think that I do like that a lot of people are doing are actually renting out dump trailers. They are more expensive. They’re easier to steal, because generally it is too expensive almost to run out a gooseneck dump trailer. You’re probably going to have a tag-along dump trailer if you’ve written them out, and the nice thing on those are they’re easy on driveways. The thing you’re always going to worry about on dumpsters is digging it into the driveway.
You can look up bin there, dump that. They have a unique system, I think they use boards or something like that, but anyway they have a system where they say it’s damage-free to your driveway. I’ve replaced a driveway twice. We had two separate trucks just randomly get oil leak on a brand-new driveway that couldn’t get cleaned up, so we actually had to tear up the driveway and put it down for like $6,000. It was the bobcat that blew a hydraulic line on one of them, and then the other one was a section of the driveway through one of our trucks just ran. What happened was the dipstick, the little O-ring on the top of the dipstick was messed up. The guys had taken a turn a little fast, the hole was sloshed up, it was actually dripping off that dipstick. The other one we blew the hydraulic line, they didn’t realize it was pouring hydraulic fluid down the driveway. It cost us several thousand dollars to replace the entire brand-new driveway. Look up bin there, dump that, it’s a pretty neat system, and I think they are pretty neat in business modelling – they specialized in minivans.
Here are your choices. I recommend the dump truck every single day, seven days a week – the Low Cab Ford. You see a lot of Mitsubishi’s, but I’m not really familiar with them. Isuzu’s are a pretty good truck if you’re really looking forward to them.
Consider It: Gas vs Diesel
Gas or Diesel. Everything we own is diesel, but you can check Isuzu’s truck. I think it’s something like if you’re going to drive more than 15,000 miles a year, the increased longevity and the better few mods are slightly better on the diesel, it’ll saving you money. I think it’s 15,000, somewhere around 15,000 and 20,000 miles. If you’re driving more than that, diesel truck pays off. Generally, it depends on your area, and how spread out your area is. For example: are our Raleigh trucks put about 800 miles a week on each of our trucks. Before we had as many trucks as we do, we did 1,000 miles per week, so we put over 50,000 miles a year on our vehicles. It just depends on how spread out your area is. Diesel is generally what I would recommend – they got a lot of good torque, they got plenty of power. The Isuzu trucks, and any of these diesel trucks have plenty of engine. Your limitation is going to be the suspension or how much weight you can haul. That’s what we’ll talk about it. The key is whatever you go with, either gas, or diesel – have all of them be the same. The reason for that is if you’re going to have drivers put gas in your diesel engines, diesel in your gas engines all the time. We’ve had that happen three times; they put gas into a diesel and we’ve lucked out each and every time we’ve replaced the fuel filters, drained out of fuel out of the tank, and just fill it up with diesel, and we were able to get the everything primed back up, cranked up, and it ran no problem. Actually, old number one happened recently. I think it started running better after getting a little gas in it, but for the most part you can seriously mess up an engine, and an engine on these trucks is $6,500, so you definitely don’t want to do that. There is an advantage to the gas, and the Isuzu gas trucks are good. I haven’t driven one, but I’ve been told are very peppy. They drive completely different. The diesels are pretty quick, but they’re a lot more gradual. The advantage of gas is most team members are used to putting gas in their vehicles, so that’s for sure is a big-time benefit. If you have somebody that has a diesel vehicle, normally they’re a bit more mechanically inclined, and they’re not going to screw up and place diesel in a gas vehicle so that certainly is an advantage. The other slight advantage on the Isuzu gas trucks is all of it is a Chevy 4 tech engine, and all those parts are so readily available. The Isuzu parts for the diesel are a bit harder to come by, and they’re more expensive. A lot of that depends on are you going to be doing the work on your own, or are you going to be getting a shop to do the work. We do all our maintenance in-house, we do all of our routine stuff, we got some guys that work with us on the junk trucks that do our routine maintenance, and then we’ve got a mechanic that we use all time as well. So, whatever you do, just keep all the same. Don’t mix and match, you’’ be having all kinds of headaches.
If you’re going to use a used truck, you’ve got a couple options. You can buy a used Got Junk truck, a used College Hunks truck, or a used Junk King truck. The Junk King trucks you rarely see, I don’t know why, but you rarely see a Junk King truck. We’re going to be between the College Hunks truck and the Got Junk truck. I recommend Got Junk trunk for a couple reasons. Number one: The Got Junk trucks are lighter, and readily available. There’s a lot more Got Junk trucks on the market. You want to be able to buy the same type of truck. The problem with College Hunks trucks is they’re so heavy. They’re over-built, they need to be in a lower frame. They’re on a 14-5 GVWR frame, but they need to build a 19-5 GVWR frame. When you are looking to buy an Isuzu Got Junk truck, buy between 2005 to 2007 4HK1 if you’re going to get a diesel – that’s the engine, the 4HK1. The reason we say buy between 2005 and 2007 is because the 4HK1 is a very good engine. In the 2005, make sure it’s the 4HK1, because I think they made some years, especially in the GMC, that it was a 4HE1. I’m not completely positive, but I believe there are a few trucks in 2005 that had the 4HE1 engine. It’s still a good engine, but it’s a bit more expensive to work on. and it has less power too. The 2008 and later started getting the diesel particulate filters, and the diesel exhaust fluid systems, they were very troublesome. The depth system of the Isuzu is pretty good, but it is another headache. The problem with the DPF cleaning system, and the depth system on the Isuzu’s is you have to let that cycle run through. Do some research on it. If for some reason you’re not driving quick enough on a highway for it to automatically do regen, and then the driver – remember you have inexperienced drivers like we were talking about – if it gives out a final warning, and the driver doesn’t pull over and do a manual – and that’ll take a half hour, so that’s a half hour paying while your truck driver sits around while the truck does this thing, that’s a half hour or you could miss your land fill before closes, that’s a half hour you could be late to your next job. So, this would be a bit of a pain if you don’t do a lot of highway driving. As far as Isuzu goes, you can find about a 100,000-mile used Got Junk truck somewhere around $20,000 to $25,000 in decent condition. You may even find them a bit less if you’re not hurry to buy. The problem is generally, you don’t buy a truck until you absolutely have to have one. That’s why we recommended earlier to try and buy a bit soon, but if you wait the last possible minute you’re not going to be as flexible in price, so you’re probably going to want to pay a bit more. Again, $20,000 to $25,000 will get you a decent unit somewhere around 100000 miles. When they’re running listen to the engines, and you need to listen to Isuzu’s 4HK1’s engines because they do sound different, but if there’s a bunch of gear train noise, and a lot of clacking, don’t buy it. Normally, Isuzu engines are good for 300,000 miles plus. They say 310,000 is the overall time, but we have one with like 330,000, 340,000 on. It’s slow on power, but it still gets the job done running in 60 miles per hour; smokes a little. Somewhere around 230,000 the transmission is going to go out. Transmissions on these trucks are about $5,000, and it’s going to cost you about $1,200 to put in, so it’s going to be about $6,200 to put in a new transmission. We’ve done junkyard transmissions in the past and had pretty good luck. The key is how many miles on it, so hopefully you can figure out what truck it came off of. Green’s Used Truck Parts in Fremont, North Carolina is a pretty good outfit. They do ship parts, but they’re a little harder to deal with. I’ll tell you a good company is Bus Beat Truck Parts in South Carolina. The problem with transmissions is shipment’s going to be $700.You can buy a Got Junk transmission for $1,500, so you get one with 34,000 miles or less that’s out of a wrecked truck, you got a winner there, that’s a good deal. The trucks will occasionally have some electrical issues or have some sort of sensor go off and put it on a limp mode. It’s very slow when it goes on that limp mode, and you have to plug it into a computer and figure out what’s wrong with it. Only Isuzu use brand fuel filters. Don’t use the fleet value, their discount filters which they recommend. Use the Isuzu brand filters. It’s like an aluminum canister filter and it’ll say Isuzu on it. Those are the only filters you use, they filter the best, and fuel systems are susceptible rust. The fuel tanks on these trucks rust, and the rust gets up in your injectors and your fuel lines. It gets $4,000 or $5,000 to replace. We had that happen where we were losing injectors on one of these trucks, it was truck one we wanted to put two sets of injectors at, and then we realized we started having another issue. The fuel pump was still working, but it was coming apart. It was throwing metal up in all these lines, and the injectors and everything. It was super expensive to fix. We had almost $10,000 to repairs in that truck. I told you all, wrong about truck one. It would have been about five thousand dollars in repairs, but we put in two sets of injectors in for like $400 each for that particular truck. They’re cheap before the 4HK1 – the 4HK1 injectors were like $250 each. That pump was throwing metal into the system. It contaminated those fuel lines. All the fuel lines for that pump had to be replaced as well as the injectors. It was very expensive. If you have injectors going out on these trucks, be a little weary because it could have an issue that you’ll follow.
If you could swing the new truck, what we recommend on a new truck is an Isuzu NRR, with a JRA truck body. We can coordinate with a dealer, or you could use our dealers. There are advantages to both; one of our dealers is very familiar with this body, they can guide you through the process. If you have a local dealer nearby, or if you can get a maintenance done in a dealership, sometimes I can help you out. You tend to get a lot better treatment from maintenance facilities when you buy their truck through that facility. Our dealer is MHC Kenworth, and if you buy through us, there are some advantages to that, but the problem is you could lose the advantage at your MHC or your local Isuzu dealer at getting good treatment, and fast treatment on getting your trucks fixed, and that could be an issue. Some of these places trucks could be down for three or four days. That’s the reason when you work your stuff in-house that’s the way to go. Get a new truck in an NRR body. That’s a $19,500 GVWR, and you’re going to pay somewhere around $4,000 more over an NPR. On the NRR, you’re going to be legal most of the time, you’re hardly ever going to put the NRR overweight. It’s a lot safer, because it has larger brakes, and heavy-duty suspensions. It’s made to haul more weight. Isuzu NPR trucks, we’ve had them overloaded, and the front end just felt like hopping up off the ground a little, and the brakes don’t work nearly as good, and it’s just not a comfortable feeling. It’s easy to overload these trucks, especially if you’re like Junkluggers putting on Switch-N-Go. Another advantage of the MRR is that brakes last a lot longer, so on the NPR trucks you’re going to be putting brakes on it about every 50,000 miles, and in the NRR trucks it’s about 100,000. That’s front brake pads every 100,000 miles on those NRR trucks. JRA body – it’s an awesome body, it’s well built, it’s got a large toolbox up front, it’s got flat sides to really put your graphics, it’s a superior body. It is better constructed and a superior body to the Got Junk body. It weighs more. You don’t want to put the JRA body on an NPR, a matter of fact we won’t sell you one if you’re trying give us money for a JRA body in your NPR truck, we’re going to tell you we’re not going to do it. You’re not going to be happy with it, and we’re not going to anything that we know our customers are not going to be happy about. That the way to go – an NRR with a JRA body. This set up right here is about a $75,000 combination give or take. Just look up the price of the NRR and add $20,000 to it. The JRA body – this could be going up with a steel tariffs going in place. The United States imports a lot of steel from Canada, so we’d have to check with our supplier to see if prices are going to be going up because of this tariff. I don’t keep up with the bodies enough to know that. The other advantage to NRRs is tires. Your tires are larger and are tougher. We hardly ever get a nail in NRR tires. We get nails weekly in our NPR tires. We are always plugging tires and packing tires on the NPR trucks. The NRR trucks hardly ever take any debris at all, it must be a harder tire. It’s about 110 pounds too, and it’s a hard time, it holds more air pressure, and it’s harder for that debris to penetrate.
This is the break down on your Vehicle Selection. This is very selective, going to encourage everybody to go with a dump truck as soon as you can; Low Cab Ford. Buy new if it’s possible, buy multiple used if not. There’s a lot of options here, you can visit the Website junkremovalauthority.com and read my blog post. Hopefully you are taking notes as you went, because I feel like we just blew out a lot of information on truck selection and vehicle selection. Remember, Junk Removal Authority is your source for starting, managing, and expanding your Junk Removal Business. We’re here with AdWords management – that’s what we’re pushing hard now. We have a lot of interest in it. A guy at California just started some AdWords management today. We’ve got great prices and all that. Flat rates not depending on your budget. We want you to have every job you can get on AdWords, we want you to be profitable. We’re going to work to make that happen. You will book up more jobs from the Internet than you’ve ever booked before. AdWords is the way people find information right now. Make sure you watch my video on AdWords management. It’s scary as hell, but you’ve got to be doing if you will be a serious player. We’ve got full Websites; right now, on sale for $5,000. Check out junkdrs.com yourself. That site is having content adjusted for the SEO representing your particular city. It’ll have ‘book online now’ features, and it’s just been tested to convert. So, when our AdWords brings customers to your site, it’s going to convert that into a call and a sale, especially when you have the business package that will teach you how to make sure you close the deal on the phone. Of course, our call center, the ultimate in flexibility for your Junk Removal Business, you can use our call center. Send us any missed calls and we’re answer it in your business name. We got a way where we know where the call comes from, and we’ll answer in your business name. We do after hours, we can do holidays, and any time you miss a call we can take every single call you want. $20 per book job is what we charge, so if it doesn’t convert into work for you, we won’t charge you anything. If it converts into a job, it’s $20 per book job. There’s a breakdown we’ve done on how many jobs you would need before it’s really worth hiring somebody else to answer your phone. You got to pay them $40,000 to $50,000. I could do the math in my head, but I don’t want to do it right now. You had to pay a secretary $40,000 depending on the area of your country. Call center is a great option, it’s what I’m excited about. I hope the call center really blows up and gets really popular, so we can make it 24/7.
