Full Description



Junk Hunters is a ‘rubbish business’, with HUGE potential.

‘Junk’ is big business and the demand for junk removal and recycling is growing throughout the UK.

Having started with a single vehicle in 2008, Junk Hunters have continued to increase business year on year, to the point that we now have a turnover of £1,000,000 plus and run a fleet of vehicles. We are now offering you the opportunity to be part of our success story by owning a Junk Hunters franchise.

Some ‘Rubbish Facts’- Local Authorities spend £2.8 billion on outsourced waste services – The UK produces 202 million tonnes of waste annually – 44.3% of waste is recycled – 936,000 incidents of ‘fly tipping’ were dealt with by local authorities.

As a Junk hunters franchisee, you not only help the environment by providing a valuable service to your local community, but you will also build a sustainable business with attractive profit margins and a strong future re-sale value.

Our Business Model

Capitalising on multiple opportunities to gain business has been the key to our success at Junk Hunters. 

All households and businesses produce junk. The potential for junk removal is therefore huge and it is growing! Our domestic customers range from individuals who need their whole house cleared, through to the removal of a single piece of unwanted furniture such as that old couch. We even remove their garden rubbish and make sure that it is ethically disposed off.

Commercially we are asked to take away anything from waste packing materials, through to unwanted office furniture and within the building and construction industries we are called upon to remove excess building materials.

The saying “One man’s junk is another man’s prized possession” provides you with the opportunity to gain a further source of income, as you can add turnover to your business by recycling a percentage of the items that you collect. Metal, Wood and even Cardboard all have a re-sale value.

We offer an Operator Model where you are actively working on the vehicle as well as a Management Model where you will employ staff and your role will be to handle business development. The choice is yours!

Training & Support

Our induction training, which is carried out at our head office as well as your chosen location, will ensure that you gain both the knowledge and the confidence to get off to a flying start.

Our comprehensive launch package will provide you with everything you need to commence trading. Our head office support includes a central contact number so that incoming calls and business opportunities are never missed.

You will benefit from our industry specific management system which allows our head office staff to check your availability via an online diary This ensures that you are never ‘double booked’ for jobs. Customers can even book online via our website, so you can actually gain business whilst you are sleeping!

As your franchisor we will ensure that you have all the tools and knowledge to grow a sustainable and lucrative business.

The Potential

Our aim at Junk Hunters is to help you grow a business that will provide you with an income that gives you a desirable lifestyle, whilst also building an asset with an attractive future re-sale value.

Our business model allows you to start with one truck where you will be the ‘operator’ or alternatively with multiple trucks, where your role is more management and client development. The only barrier to you growing to a multi-vehicle business will be your own ambition.

Could You Be a Junk Hunter?

Whilst we might be a ‘rubbish’ business, we have a reputation that we are proud of and one that we intend to keep. It is therefore extremely important to us that our franchisees uphold that reputation.

Previous industry experience is not important (that’s the ‘stuff’ that we teach you). We are looking for the following qualities in our franchisees however:

Management Experience – An expanding business means an expanding team that you need to manage.

Business Development Skills – Effectively marketing and selling our service is key to success.

Customer Service Attitude – As with any service based business we must put our customers first. That’s why they come back to us time and time again.

Financial Management – It’s your business so understanding ‘the numbers’ is crucial.

We might be a ‘rubbish business’ but as a Junk Hunters franchisee you have an outstanding opportunity to build a secure future for you and your family.
