The Junkluggers to Bring ‘Green’ Junk Removal to Maryland

Partners Up With 124-Year-Old Moving Company

January 19, 2017 // // STAMFORD, Conn. – The Junkluggers, an eco-friendly junk removal franchise, has announced that it is partnering up with Von Paris Moving & Storage, a prominent moving company that has established an impeccable reputation in the greater Baltimore and Washington D.C. region, to offer residents in Central Maryland a more convenient and environmentally-friendly way to eliminate clutter.

This marks The Junkluggers’ first foray into Maryland. Von Paris will service Harford County, MD; Anne Arundel County, MD; Baltimore County, MD; Howard County, MD; Baltimore City, MD and also has the ability to service other surrounding counties. The Junkluggers plan to add one to two additional locations throughout the state in the next few years.

John Von Paris is the president and CEO of Von Paris Moving & Storage, a family-owned and operated company founded in 1892. He has served previously as chairman of the Better Business Bureau of Greater Maryland and past member of the Governor's Workforce Investment Board, where he co-chaired the Transportation Initiative and presently serves as a Board member of the Maryland Transportation Authority Board.

Von Paris Moving & Storage provides both residential and commercial moving, storage and logistics services to a wide range of clients.

“Von Paris Moving & Storage is an extremely impressive, well-known brand that is deeply ingrained in the community,said Josh Cohen, founder and CEO of The Junkluggers. “This partnership is a perfect synergy between two brands who are hoping to leverage the experience, systems and processes, existing infrastructure and customer base.”

Founded in 2004, by then 21-year old Josh Cohen, The Junkluggers offers full-service junk removal for homes and businesses including offices, retail locations, construction sites, and more. Aside from select hazardous materials, Junkluggers can lug away just about anything, from furniture and appliances to electronics and concrete, among other items.

The Junkluggers provides an environmentally-friendly alternative, saving millions of pounds of junk from landfills each year by donating on average 70% of the items they remove to local charities and recycling centers. When an item is donated on a customer’s behalf, Junkluggers will provide a tax-deductible receipt within 14 business days.

“Over the years, we’ve received countless inquiries from our customers about removing unwanted items responsibly,” said Von Paris. “With this partnership, we are now able to apply The Junkluggers’ eco-friendly model to our loyal customers offering a convenient, one stop shop for both their moving and removal needs. By focusing on donating many of the items hauled away to local charities and recycling as much as possible, we are proud to add a new service that also makes a difference in the community and the planet.”

The Junkluggers are able to provide a free estimate upon arrival, with pricing based on the amount of volume items will take up in the truck, with all labor, disposal fees and recycling/donation efforts included in the simple and straight forward pricing structure. If the items take up less room in the truck than initially estimated, the customer will be charged accordingly. Junkluggers specializes in the greener side of disposal and also returns tax deductible donation receipts to customers for any items donated on their behalf.
