Grunts Move Junk Does all the Hard Work with a Soft Heart

grunts-move-junk-facebook

Spring is the kick off to the busy season of junk removal and moving. People begin to open up their houses and clean out their rooms where junk has been accumulating over the past few months. They start a pile and think “why should I hire a junk removal company when I could easily just do this myself?”. To be honest, you very well could just do it yourself, but who knows how many trips you will be taking to the landfill. What could have been a two hour job for us, may turn into a two day job for you. Another thing to consider is what that junk could possibly do to the side or bed of your truck, or even worse you! We can’t even begin to tell you how many horror stories we have heard from people trying to move junk on their own, and ending up in the hospital with a broken foot or back. You may think that by removing the junk on your own, you are saving money, but realistically it could end up costing more.

At Grunts Move Junk, we are professionals at what we do, and do so with a smile on our faces. We aren’t your typical junk removal company. We are a veteran owned and operated company and employ veterans young and old. Our mission is to build a solid foundation for transitioning service men and women, into positions where they can continue to serve their communities. When we provide our customers with a service, we strive to treat all of our customers as if they are apart of our family. It is our job and duty to give them and their belongings the respect that they deserve.

So why should you hire Grunts Move Junk over other junk removal companies? Because we do all of the hard work with a soft heart. May that be loading and hauling away your junk, cleaning vacant spaces, helping you move out of an old home and into a new one or cleaning up your yard. No matter the job, we take care of you so you never have to do any of the dirty work yourself. You can count on us to get the job done! Click here to book your next service with us!

20 Things Only Vermonters Will Understand

Vermont

If you were born in Vermont, or have spent majority of your time living here, we can all agree that Vermonter’s are a little different than the rest of the folks across the United States. We love our maple syrup, pronounce some words a little differently, get asked what state Vermont is in and everyone thinks we are outnumbered by cows. Enjoy this list of things that only Vermonters might understand.

  1. Its called a creemee, not soft serve. Oh, and the things we put on top are called sprinkles, not jimmies. Don’t question us, it’s just how it is!
  2. Ben and Jerry’s ice cream is a big deal
  3. We have unique seasons; almost winter, winter, still winter, mud season and road construction. We also get this season called “summer”, but it doesn’t seem to stick around for very long.
  4. Flatlanders- what we call everyone not from or born in Vermont
  5. Maple syrup pretty much runs through our veins, and is one of the main food groups
  6. The Lake Monster- Champ, lives in Lake Champlain
  7. Heady Topper is our favorite craft beer
  8. We love our Cabot cheese
  9. Leaf Peepers- we like their business, but their driving…not so much.
  10. Shorts and t-shirts weather is anything above 40 degrees
  11. We can spot the difference between real and fake maple syrup. You can keep your Aunt Jemima, we only use real Vermont maple syrup around here.
  12. The T in “Vermont” and “mountain” is silent
  13. It’s impossible to run errands and not run into someone you know
  14. Snow day? What’s that? We can all count the number of snow days we’ve ever had on one hand. 
  15. We love to wear flannel
  16. Phish the band
  17. Rusty DeWees is our Larry the Cable Guy
  18. The weather changes constantly. 78 degrees and sunny one day, 32 degrees and snowing the next.
  19. 802 is our mantra
  20. We are always willing to give a helping hand, whether that be to a stranger stuck on the side of the road with a flat tire, or helping someone answer a question while shopping at the local home depot.
