I have not yet used this service as I am going through some very hard times…however, with that being said I have been in touch to get an estimate. The response was near immediate. Most of all the kindness and compassion that I was given touched me beyond measure. To me that says more about a business than anything. We need more of that in the world today. Please continue using hometown businesses like these that truly care!

I have been dealing with John remotely to help clear some junk from my parents’ land. It has been an amazing experience. Responsive and trustworthy. I immediately had a level of comfort that this company was doing the right thing. He has kept me updated with texts and pictures of the progress. Would recommend to anyone in the area (New York/Beecher, IL) that needs this type of service.


John, Colin, and Jack:

Thank all of you so much for getting that hideous freezer out of our laundry room! You are a courteous, thoughtful group of professional young men!


These guys were flexible, courteous, professional and easy to work with from start to finish. From the owner down, I felt they all offered their best service. I appreciate their effective clean out, helping me accomplish in 1 day what I could not have done in 365!

Courteous, quick, honest and professional are just a few of the words I would choose to characterize this business. If you are in need of removal of anything you need to get rid of, I would recommend calling these folks first. If it’s something they can handle, you will not be disappointed.

I’ve used 1st Class twice now to help remove debris from an ongoing basement demolition. Both times John and, I believe his name is Ben, were quick to respond, super polite and made quick work of everything I needed help in removing. I was also very pleased with the pricing I was given. I’d recommend their services to anyone and would definitely call again. Maybe when it’s time for that pool table…

Everything about them was absolutely great. From the timing of their response, to the scheduling of the demo, to the actual demolition and removal. When they left, the worksite was clean and clear of any left over materials. Excellent job, done by excellent people, and at an excellent price.
Thank You.


Just a great team to work with. They were very professional and affordable


John was prompt, professional and fair.  I would definitely recommend this service.

Excellent…Highly Recommend

Excellent from start to finish. John was extremely courteous and professional from start to finish. He arrived on time and even offered to bring coffee or tea before he arrived. Excellent customer service and a great attitude throughout. I highly recommend John and 1st Class to any that are in the area in need of junk removal. Thanks again John!

I investigated quite a few companies to remove items from my home. 1st Class’s rates were the best as well as the service —-prompt, professional and thorough. I would recommend this company to anyone. I am moving shortly and plan on using this company again. Five stars!!!!!!

Epic Cleanout

I have a good size basement that needed attention. John and his crew handled the job quickly and efficiently! Their communication with me throughout the process was 1st Class all the way! John even got an antiques man involved. I wound up making some money for my stuff! I am one happy customer!! 1st Class lives up to their name!!! I highy recommend them.

Save yourself the headache (and backache), call 1st Class Junk Removal Service.


I have rented a dumpster before and thought I would need to when moving last week. I was running out of time and energy to deal with a dumpster, and found John at 1st Class Junk Removal. What could have been a few days of mental breakdown turned into one day of relief. If you haven’t rented a dumpster before, I paid around $600 for a 20 yard dumpster from my garbage service. There a bunch of things you can’t put in there and you have to do all the work. John charged based on the amount of space used in the dumpster, I am NOT saying it will be $600. For very close to what I would have spent on dumpsters, John and his coworker handle all the labor and really do their best to maximize the dumpster space. They aren’t just throwing things in and leaving big gaps. Also, John knowns what can and cannot go in the dumpster. He did his best to handle all my junk and was clear on what he could not be responsible for.


Thank you so much I am so happy. I am sorry it was such a mess but I am thrilled! God bless.
