Thank you for visiting our franchise website and for your interest in owning a Junk Hunters Franchise.

Junk Hunters offers a great opportunity to build a lucrative and sustainable business within the fast growing sector of waste removal and recycling.

I originally came to the UK to study and successfully gained an MBA in Automotive Engineering from Kingston University. Whilst my academic qualifications meant that I could have gone down the ‘employed route’, I always knew that I wanted to work for myself.

I had no knowledge of waste removal or recycling when I started the business back in 2008, but recognised that the demand for the services that Junk Hunters provides was growing and was predicted to grow even further.

That was important to me as I wanted a business that had long term prospects. I started with a second hand Ford Transit tipper truck operating under the brand name London Junk. Hard work, perseverance and providing a first class service to all of our customers, has meant that I now own a business with a fleet of vehicles turning over £1,000,000 plus.

Whilst there are no guarantees in business, it’s difficult to imagine a more future proof business opportunity than rubbish and junk clearance and recycling. People and businesses will always need to get rid of unwanted ‘stuff’ and the need for this service exists everywhere hence, my desire to expand the business by offering individuals the opportunity to own a Junk Hunters franchise. It has proven to be a great success in London where, as previously mentioned, I’ve built the business up to a multi vehicle operation. London may be the largest city in the UK, however it is not unique. All towns and cities produce rubbish. I know that the opportunity exists for like minded individuals to repeat my success nationwide.

In order to give the business model national appeal we have re-branded as Junk Hunters. I built my original business from the ground up. The team at Junk Hunters know exactly how to make our business model work and I am ready to work with franchisees in order to replicate my success. If you’ve ever dreamt of owning your own business and don’t mind rolling up your sleeves and getting stuck in, then I want to hear from you.

Owning a Junk Hunters franchise will appeal to a wide range of people, from graduates to more experienced workers. I’m expecting interest from ambitious potential business owners, like I was myself when I started the company, but I am also very much looking forward to speaking to more experienced individuals such as those employees currently working in the refuse departments of local councils, who may wish to opt out of the public sector and gain the benefits associated with owning your own business and working for yourself.

You don’t need previous business experience as we will provide training in all aspects of running a waste removal and recycling company. The qualities we will be looking for however are an aptitude for hard work, a willingness to follow the systems that have made our business a success and a genuine determination to succeed and create a business that will provide financial security for you and your family, as well as creating an asset with an attractive future re-sale value.

If you possess those qualities and have that desire, then the sky’s the limit with Junk Hunters. We may be a ‘rubbish company’ but we offer you a life changing opportunity.
