We Are The Junk Pirates

Tried to hire several to help remove yard waste, most came but then left and never came back. Junk Pirates, came, gave a great quote, asked when they could do the work, started that second and the yard is clean! They went above and beyond what I would have expected. Definitely recommending to friends.

Kat Raicha

Paul was extremely pleasant to work with. I called him and he was out to my house in Sparta in the blink of an eye to bid my job. He started bright and early the next morning and had the entirety of a remodel tear-out cleaned up in about 2 hours. Very affordable and would absolutely recommend their services!!!

Six Secrets About
The Junk Pirates

The six secrets about The Junk Pirates of Columbia, Missouri, may at first sound corny. But we assure you, they are true despite the high level of mushiness. Maybe that’s why we’ve been in business for as long as we have — since 1999!

What we do is not just a job. Instead of taking phone calls and making appointments to remove junk — a.k.a., order takers, we take the time to listen so we can fully understand your situation. You may think we’re just junk guys, but we’re so much more than a business who drops by to arbitrarily pick up junk.

You see, we recognize the amount of stress that is involved with junk accumulation.

Junk is a strange phenomenon. One day it seems to appear out of nowhere, sneaking up behind your back until it’s directly in your face. It’s that day when you can no longer park your car in the garage or when you realize you can’t walk down the basement stairs anymore without having to maneuver around boxes and other items you no longer need.

Getting rid of junk also possesses an emotional factor, especially if you’ve had it for any length of time. Involvement with an estate sale or cleanout of a loved one’s home can be emotionally devastating.

The good news is that we understand. We take the time to see you as a person, not just a job. These are the reasons that make us different.

We call these reasons secrets because they’re hidden behind the scenes until you directly experience them as our customers do. We know they discover our secrets from the words they use in our reviews. Words like: Caring, Easy, Family, Friendly, Happy, and Love.

These six little secret words are precisely who and what we are at The Junk Pirates—corniness and all!


We care about you. Getting rid of junk creates feelings of accomplishment, but it also involves stress. We want you to save your back too and leave the heavy lifting to us.


Over and over, you hear about our friendliness sprinkled throughout our reviews. Being friendly is second nature to us. It’s not part of the job; it’s just who we are.


We give you a FREE estimate on the phone or provide a no-cost on-site firm quote. If you’re happy with the price, we’ll haul off your junk. If not, you have no obligation. Easy peasy.


Your happiness is our number one concern. Before we leave, we make sure everything is swept and cleaned. The smile on your face when we say goodby means everything to us.


We are a homegrown local business born in these parts where family is everything. We deeply care about our community and are proud of keeping it junk-free.
