Junk Doctors was founded by 5th generation Cary native Lee Godbold. Lee’s grandfather, Bob, served on the Cary Town Council for many years. Because of that, Godbold Park was named after Bob. Lee is happy to be carrying on the Cary tradition for the Godbold’s by helping residents keep Cary clean and doing our best to keep items out of the landfill.
To do that, we will come to your home and load your items no matter where the stuff comes from. Pricing is based on the amount of space your items take up in our truck and you’ll be quoted up front. At that point, if you give us the go ahead we will load the truck right then and there. In the event that your job is larger than a truckload we will still quote you a firm price up front and get a second truck scheduled for you. As you can see, we’ve done our best to keep junk removal in Cary simple.

Yard Waste Removal
(*): Limited Amounts
Donation Pickup Services Raleigh and Surrounding
Junk Doctors does their best to ensure that your items receive a chance at a second life. As our team loads the truck they are sorting items that should be donated, recycled, or disposed of. Following that, the items will be delivered to a local charity. For example, we like to work with Habitat for Humanity Raleigh, Cary, and Apex, Durham Rescue Mission, Dorcas Ministries, The Green Chair Project, and other charities that donate a larger percentage of what they bring in to charity. It is because of the desire to work with charities that do the most charity that we try to work with local companies instead of your larger donation centers.
Typical items for Donation
Some items that we commonly donate are:
Christmas and other holiday decorations
Items that are normally not accepted at charities
CRT Televisions and computer monitors
Sorting through donate-able and recyclable items is one of the things that separates a full service junk cleanout company from a dumpster rental company. For example, with a dumpster rental company the items that go into the dumpster go straight to the landfill. For that reason, there are many items that you are unable to put into a dumpster. For example, you are not able to put electronics, pallets, tires, appliances, computer monitors, or televisions in a dumpster. Furthermore, you are not allowed to put in yard waste without paying an additional fee. However, a Raleigh, NC Junk Removal company can sort through those items and recycle them. For this reason, we can accept items that a dumpster rental company will turn away.
Required Condition of Items to be Accepted
Charities are becoming more selective as to what they take out of necessity. Otherwise they would be loaded down with items they can’t sell… and would have to hire a junk removal co. to get rid of them! Correspondingly, furniture has to be in almost like new condition with minimal wear and tear. Furthermore, clothing should be stain and tear free. To put it another way, if you want to get rid of it because it’s damaged, stained, or worn out the chances that somebody else wants it are low. For this reason, charities generally won’t want the stuff either.
Preparing your Items for Donation
To prepare your items for donation we do ask that you do a few things. Obviously our guys are able to look at large pieces of furniture and know if it is in good enough condition to be donated. To do so, those pieces will need to be loaded last so they can be hand unloaded at a donation center. However, if you have smaller items such as clothing, toys, holiday decorations, dishes, etc. we do ask that you prepare these items for us. To do this, please box and bag the items together, and use sticky notes and/or a Sharpie to label as so. Furthermore, please separate any and all clothing from other donations.
We will mail you a tax receipt for any items that are donated. Keep in mind that it may be a few weeks before you receive your receipt. The reason for this is your items could be taken to our warehouse and sorted where it could be up to a week before they are taken to a donation center or picked up by a charity. In addition to the wait time on sorting, please allow us up to a week or so to mail off the receipt. Most importantly, please make sure that if you are moving you provide us with your new mailing address.
The map below shows our service area for both of our locations, Raleigh Junk Doctors and Greensboro Junk Doctors. In addition, we also service the Southern Pines, Pinehurst, and Charlotte area. Furthermore, we service areas outside of our normal service area on a routine basis. If you have a larger junk removal job outside of our normal service area then give us a call to see if we can service you.
Locally Owned and Operated
Junk Doctors has been incorporated since January of 2012. Accordingly, we are the experienced locally owned option for junk removal in the Raleigh, NC and surrounding areas. Correspondingly, since that time we’ve dedicated ourselves to providing a team that is knowledgeable, personable, respectful, clean cut, honest, hard working, and of course… strong. Further, it’s important to realize that all but one or two of our competitors are large, national franchises. What that means is each of those companies sends between 12%-15% of your money out of the area to their corporate offices in the form of a franchise fee. To put it another way, you could be spending money that benefits you and your neighbor; instead it’s going out of state or out of the country. We will keep all of your money in the local economy.
Our business is mainly from residential clients. However, we offer office or commercial junk removal in Raleigh, Cary, Chapel Hill, Durham, Apex, Clayton, and surrounding areas. Offices tend to have lots of electronics and heavy furniture or equipment that need to be removed. Hence, we equip our truck teams with necessary straps and dollies to do the job correctly. Furthermore, we also work fast and respect the fact normal work is often going on while junk removal is taking place. Finally, we offer after hours work for an additional charge to reduce workforce distraction.
Hot Tub Removal
We remove hot tubs from the Cary area on a routine basis. Due to this we have become good at getting rid of them. Pricing is based on the size of the hot tub, where it is located within your property, and how it is constructed. Even though there are a few variables that determine the cost of the removal we provide you with a firm price up front.
How We Remove Them
Junk Doctors uses a special saw to cut your hot tub into sections. Because we bring two guys to remove your hot tub. Often times deck rails are built up around a hot tub. Because we cut the hot tub into sections we don’t have to disassemble the rails from the deck. In addition, it does not matter if the hot tub is located on top of your deck or is recessed down in it. We do it both ways.
What do you need to do before we arrive? There are a few things. Firstly, we are not electricians so we do ask that you have the hot tub disconnected from electrical power. Lastly, please drain the water from the hot tub. Upon completion of those two items call us so we can get started.
Rental Home or Apartment Cleanout
We provide junk removal services to rental homes and apartments all the time. Unfortunately, it is not so uncommon for a tenant to leave all of their stuff with you when they leave. Chances are that none of it is valuable because if it was they would have taken it themselves. Every minute a rental property sits vacant is missed income. For this reason, we will remove your junk same or next day if desired.

Junk Removal Cary Hoarder Clean-Up
Do you know of someone struggling with compulsive hoarding? Junk Doctors can help get them cleaned up.
What is Compulsive Hoarding?
Compulsive Hoarding is now defined as a mental disorder that affects many people throughout the country. Hoarders will collect what most people would consider trash. Many of the hoarding jobs we have done have newspapers dated years back, junk mail, torn clothing, fast food cups, magazines, etc. Generally the hoarders have created paths to walk. Often times the door of the house barely open because of the junk wedged in behind them. Hoarding is a health hazard from the increased likelihood of falling and from the sanitation issues caused by having so much trash. Often times these homes are infested with mice, roaches, and spiders.
Hoarding symptoms can show up early in life however they tend to worsen as an individual grows older. Traumatic events can really kick in the hoarding tendencies as the individual tries to gain satisfaction from the items they hoard. A death of a close friend or relative is a common cause for hoarding tendencies to worsen. Most of the time loved ones who attempt to help the hoarder clean up will be met with animosity. It truly puts a strain on relationships.
Our Experience with Hoarding
Junk Doctors does about seven to eight hoarding junk removal jobs each year. Almost all of the time it is done by friends and relatives of the hoarder without the hoarder being present. Our team can enter the house and remove all of the trash. We will do a sweep of the entire house to complete the job. Professional cleaners can then come in after and often times with minimal repair work get the house back to like new condition. The hoarder needs to receive psychiatric help or unfortunately they will go back to their tendencies once they get back to the house.
Our Hoarder Clean Up service area includes Raleigh, Cary, Durham, Chapel Hill, Apex, Morrisville, Clayton, and the greater Research Triangle Park area. We also services the Greensboro market and will go into other areas due to the sheer size of these jobs. Give us a call at 919-466-9322 with any questions.
