Since launching in 2014, we’ve often been referred to as the “Uber for hauling”, the “Uber for junk removal”, and even the “Uber for moving furniture”. And with discounted rates that are 20% – 30% lower than other junk removal companies, we’ve even been dubbed the “Lyft for moving”.
We couldn’t agree more. But what exactly does it mean to be the Uber for hauling? We’ll discuss the benefits of the LoadUp junk removal platform for both customers and truck drivers, and dive into what it means to be the Uber for hauling.

What Does ‘Uber for Hauling’ Mean?
Like the Uber® platform, the LoadUp junk removal platform connects customers in need of a service with truck Drivers looking to provide that service.
The only real difference is that LoadUp matches customers in need of unwanted item removal with fully vetted and background checked truck owners who use their trucks to haul unwanted junk items away for eco-friendly disposal.
The LoadUp junk removal platform is the perfect nationwide solution for customers in need of getting rid of old junk at an affordable price, and the perfect solution for truck drivers and service providers wanting to turn their hard work into cash.
The mutual benefits of our junk removal platform have created a faster and more affordable option for disposing of unwanted items in an eco-friendly way, nationwide.
How Uber for Hauling Benefits Customers
There are a ton of benefits when choosing an Uber for hauling business like LoadUp to take care of difficult and time-consuming junk removal and disposal.
Lower Prices, No On-Site Estimates
Just like Uber®, our hauling services are on-demand and nationwide. And unlike most junk removal companies, we don’t believe in wasting your valuable time with on-site estimates, allowing us to keep our prices 20% – 30% lower than our competitors.
You can be confident that you’re getting the best price, since we aren’t charging extra in the “estimate” for the initial on-site visit. We come to pick up your items on the day and time window that you choose!
Feel Confident that You’re Covered
Hiring just anyone off the internet to haul away your unwanted junk is a risky move. If something were to happen during removal, like a wall gets damaged or that valuable heirloom gets knocked over, you’re the one stuck with the bill.
With LoadUp’s Uber-style junk removal platform, there’s no risk to your property. Not only are all of our Loaders covered under our $1 million insurance policy, but they’re also thoroughly background checked and vetted by our diligent recruiting and onboarding teams.
With LoadUp, you can rest assured that your personal property is safe and sound, and you’ll be getting the most professional service from skilled, licensed, and insured professionals.
Convenience and Affordability
Imagine the hassle of having to haul a heavy or bulky item yourself. Taking care of removal and disposal on your own isn’t just difficult, but it can also be pretty dangerous. You could damage your property or worse, hurt yourself.
Choosing LoadUp, the Uber for moving and hauling, means that all of the heavy lifting and hard work is taken care of for you by our junk removal specialists. From pool tables and hot tubs to basic items like furniture, mattresses and appliances, our Loaders can handle it all for you, from the comfort of your home or business.
After all, we haven’t been called the Uber for moving furniture and bulky junk for nothing!
We even have optional disassembly for items that require more than just being picked up and hauled off. With LoadUp, there’s no risk. Everything is taken care of from start to finish.
Disposal Regulations and Hauling Costs
Even if you were to be able to remove the item yourself, you’re still tasked with hauling it away for proper disposal. Different states, cities, and counties have different disposal regulations.
Since our Loaders are all locally-based, they are familiar with any intricate or confusing disposal regulations in your area, because it’s their area, too!
If your vehicle isn’t suited for hauling, you’ll have to rent a truck and pay for gas and mileage on top of the rental fee. By the time you’re done with everything, you’ve racked up quite the unnecessary bill.
But with LoadUp, all you have to do is book a pickup, and our Loaders take care of the rest. There’s nothing to stress about, nothing to rent, and no hard work to do yourself.
Easy Online Booking and Free Upfront Quotes
Just like Uber®, you can easily book our services online. With no need for on-site estimates, we provide you with upfront, guaranteed quotes in real-time based on your zip code using our upfront price quote generator. There’s absolutely no obligation to book a pickup when you get a quote, but booking is an option if you feel like our price is right.
It’s pretty hard to deny that LoadUp’s Uber for hauling platform is a whole lot easier than dealing with haggling salesmen during on-site estimates – which is exactly what you’ll have to endure from a franchised junk removal company. That’s just not how we roll.
How Uber for Hauling Benefits Truck Owners
Being an independent contractor has serious perks. You get to work when you want, only accept the jobs that you want, and you’ll never have to chase down a lead again.
LoadUp is similar to Uber® in that we use our custom app and proprietary technology to send guaranteed jobs right to your phone. As an independent contractor, you aren’t actually an employee of LoadUp; this allows you to be in the driver’s seat when it comes to where and when you work. There’s no boss setting your schedule for you – you’re the one in charge!
Get Jobs, Not Leads
Just like Uber® does with ridesharing, LoadUp’s junk removal platform matches truck drivers with guaranteed jobs, not leads. We have customers that need haul away help, and you have the qualifications, drive, and know-how to get the job done right.
When you get a job through LoadUp, you’re getting an actual job – not a lead opportunity. We’ve already taken care of securing the lead for you and collecting payment upfront.
Built-in Marketing and Advertising
At LoadUp, we don’t believe in making our Loaders do their own marketing and advertising. Not only is marketing and advertising expensive – it’s hard!
When you aren’t a professional marketer, trying to compete for junk removal jobs and get your company the exposure that it needs to turn a profit is next to impossible.
That’s why we take care of all the marketing and advertising for our Loaders.
Our marketing team has over 25 years of experience with proven successes in driving traffic to our website, boosting sales and brand exposure nationwide, and in return, sending more jobs to your app and putting more money in your pocket.
Since we aren’t a franchise, there’s no buy-in or franchising fees when you join our junk removal platform. All you have to do is pass a background check, own your own truck that meets our vehicle requirements, own a smartphone and have a helper who is over 18 years old for safety. That’s it. Seriously!
Job and Earnings Flexibility
Just like the rideshare company, our uber for hauling junk removal platform gives you the flexibility to work when you want to work, where you want to work and the ability to accept or decline an offered job.
With our Uber-style app, you can also see the job details and guaranteed payout that you’ll receive for completing the job. We also pay our Loaders on a weekly basis, so there’s no waiting around for weeks just to get a paycheck.
Grow Your Team and Profits
Starting your own hauling or junk removal business is actually easier when you’re a part of the LoadUp junk removal platform. Whether you start with a single truck or have an entire fleet, you can use our Driver app to grow your hauling business without the risks.
The most serious and dedicated Loaders will also have the opportunity to join our Exclusive Loader Program. As an Exclusive Loader, you’ll be able to purchase or lease specific zip codes in your preferred service area to ensure that you (and your team) are the first to be offered all of the jobs in the zip code(s) you own.
This gives you more job opportunities and the ability to grab the best jobs for you.
After seeing all of the success that Uber® has had, we’re proud to be called the Uber for hauling, junk removal, and moving furniture. But even more so, we’re proud to be able to provide exceptional services to our customers while also providing excellent opportunities to our Loaders with our truck sharing app and junk removal platform.
