LoadUp’s Truck Sharing App for Consumers
Unlike most truck sharing companies, LoadUp provides a service for consumers by connecting them with vetted, insured, and licensed local junk removal professionals.
Instead of having to deal with the expense and hassle of truck rental, where you would be responsible for loading, hauling, and disposing of bulky, heavy, or multiple items yourself, LoadUp’s truck sharing app makes it easier and more affordable than ever to dispose of unwanted junk effortlessly.
Save Money and Time with our Truck Sharing App
Disposing of unwanted items isn’t always as easy as just hauling them to the curb. With differing and often strict disposal regulations for many items, including appliances, furniture, electronics, and bulky items like playgrounds, trampolines, hot tubs, and air hockey tables, attempting to take care of disposal yourself can become expensive and time-consuming.
🛠️ Consider Tools and Disassembly
Many items require disassembly just to get them out the door, meaning you’ll need to spend quite a bit of time taking things apart – and if you don’t have the right tools, you’ll need to invest in them. This could include an appliance dolly, furniture dolly, hand tools, or in some cases, a reciprocating saw and power drill.
With LoadUp’s truck sharing app on our junk removal platform, you’ll be connected with local truck drivers and haulers that are licensed and insured junk removal professionals. We offer low upfront prices without the need for an on-site estimate so that your time and money isn’t wasted by multiple visits from haggling salesmen.
💸 Renting a Truck is Expensive
Renting a truck in order to haul your unwanted items to the dump isn’t the most cost-efficient way to get rid of large unwanted items. According to Move.org, the average cost of a local truck rental starts at about $130. That’s the base price and doesn’t include the average $.99 per mile you’ll have to pay on top of that.
Between picking up the truck, driving it to your property, driving to the dump or recycling facility, and then driving back to drop it off, you’ve already racked up quite a bit of mileage – and additional charges.
If you live in a remote area, you’re more likely to put more miles on a rental truck than someone living in a city. But when you take into account traffic and the difference between city miles and highway miles, it starts to add up quickly.
You’ll also need to consider the gas that you’ll use renting a truck. With the average price of gas hovering around $2 per gallon, you could easily drop another $20 just to refill what you used. If you accidentally forget to fill the truck back up to the amount of gas it came with, it’ll cost you a refueling fee of about $30 plus an additional $5 per gallon of gas used.
Yikes! That’s a lot of financial responsibility for a job you still have to do yourself.
🚛 Avoid Disposal Fees
If you decide to take your junk to the landfill, the average dump fees cost between $20 – $50 per ton. However, many landfills require a minimum load weight, so just dumping your old washing machine and dryer at the landfill might not even be possible. That’s one of the main reasons that most people choose not to do it themselves and hire an eco-friendly junk removal company, instead.
On the flip side, even being eco-friendly isn’t always free. Although many cities have recycling events and drop-off locations, you still might have to pay a small fee to have things like televisions, appliances, laptops, and even scrap metal recycled.
Save the Earth with Eco-friendly Disposal
Landfills have a seriously negative effect on the environment. Things like furniture, appliances, and electronics – which are actually recyclable – can take anywhere from 50 to 1M+ years to decompose. If you care about the Earth and future generations to come, you should avoid landfill dumping at all costs.
As a leader in the junk removal industry, LoadUp believes in finding and utilizing the most responsible, ethically-sound disposal methods available. To date, we’ve diverted over 3 million pounds of junk from local landfills across the United States – and counting.
LoadUp also partners with charities and donation centers across the country to ensure more salvageable items are reused while also going to a good cause. Consumers who choose our truck sharing junk removal platform can feel good about getting rid of unwanted items while also saving time, money and effort.

Get Jobs Through Truck Sharing
Most junk removal companies are franchises. As a junk removal professional for a franchise, you’ll be responsible for seeking out junk removal contracts, and making multiple trips to properties to perform on-site estimates that aren’t guaranteed jobs.
With LoadUp’s truck sharing app, you will never need to seek out junk removal contracts – we provide you with guaranteed paid jobs, not leads.
The biggest difference in truck sharing with LoadUp is that instead of renting out your truck for people to do the work themselves, you provide them with a service, from removal to disposal. This puts more money in your pocket than simply renting out your truck and risking damage that could happen to it while it’s in another’s possession.
Truck Share = Less Risk Than Renting Out Your Truck
Truck sharing is a great thing, but when you rent your truck out to strangers, you’re taking a serious risk with your valuable asset.
You might hear “junk removal” and picture an episode of Hoarders. Although we occasionally do get property cleanout jobs, most of our removal jobs are easy and consist of removing and ethically disposing of between 1-3 items.
Typical jobs usually include hauling furniture, appliances, and mattresses. Jobs like this are easy to complete, allowing you to accept more jobs per day, further boosting your income.
And remember, with LoadUp, you aren’t required to accept a job that is offered to you. If you don’t feel comfortable with a full property cleanout or a large, dirty job, you don’t have to accept it. We will never force you to work outside of your service area or accept jobs that you don’t want.
