Full Service Vs. Bagster Trash Removal: Which One is Better for You?

Bagster vs Junk Removal


What is the Difference in a Full Service Junk Removal Company & a Bagster Service?


There are more junk removal services today than there ever have been. Professional services pop up overnight and start servicing large pieces of territory. At the same time, reliable collection services offer their own solutions like the Waste Management Bagster. 


Professional services offer two kinds of removal approaches. Full service, where a removal crew and a removal truck handle all aspects of the process. Or self service, where a roll-away dumpster is dropped off and collected at the end of the rental period. 


These three junk removal methods are handy, but knowing more about them can make your decision on who to move with much more straightforward. 


The following section outlines the significant differences between self and full service vs. Bagster options.

Pick Up Schedules


Every professional junk removal service should have one of the following schedules: same-day, multi-day, or by appointment. These are the easiest for most people to accommodate in their schedules.  


Typically, those who order same-day services are looking for immediate removals—while those who order a multi-day service are looking for more time and space to complete their clean up. 


Services by appointment are usually chosen by those with a limited amount of waste or by those who need a prolonged garbage solution. 


Full service options consist of same-day arrival, assisted removal, and departure. When you pick full service, junk hauling and removals are as easy as 1, 2, 3—just point, and the junk is gone!


Self service options consist of multi-day rentals. Usually, these rentals are in consecutive spans of three, five, or seven days. Pick the Junk King MINI to get the most out of your dumpster rental.


The Bagster option has an appointment pick up schedule. This can be good for those who need more time to collect trash or waste. Waste Management will pick up the Bagster three to five days after calling.


Placement Guidelines


Placement guidelines are vital to know for any junk removal. Depending on the service chosen, the guidelines will change. The differences in these rules are due to the size and scale of the removal equipment. 


Dumpsters require flat ground; trucks require solid ground; the Bagster requires space. Thus, dumpsters and trucks are good solutions for locations in residential or business areas accessible by streets. 


The Bagster, however, can be placed just about anywhere—though the pick up will need certain measurements met. 


Full service junk hauler trucks require the solid ground for their placement during the removal. Junk King Big Red Trucks can sit at a limited angle but require professional assistance to fill. 


Self service rental dumpsters, on the other hand, require flat ground. This is why dumpsters are typically in residential driveways or city streets. The removal process requires flat angles. 


The Bagster, however, requires none of this. You can place it over grass or on a hill—anywhere with enough room. It should be noted, though, that during pick up, the Bagster will need five feet of space in all directions and an additional 18 feet of overhead clearance. 


Weight Limits


Weight limits are really important for full and self service options for three reasons: 


  • They sometimes impact the final price of the removal.
  • When they are surpassed, conditions become dangerous.
  • When improperly loaded, weight limits can damage whatever the dumpster or truck is positioned on. Poor loading techniques can cause scrapes, cuts, and imprints on driveways made of concrete. 


The weight limits of dumpsters vary greatly—primarily because of the size. In this way, not all dumpsters are created equal. Larger junk vehicles can handle over 8,000 pounds, whereas the smallest can only hold 2,000 pounds (1 ton). 


That’s not all to keep in mind with weight limits. Dumpsters are also typically made of steel or another hard metal. Bagsters are only made of heavy-duty fabrics. This means that dumpsters can hold bigger, heavier objects—while Bagsters literally cannot. 


The full service option for Junk King operates with our Big Red Trucks. They hold over three tons of junk—that’s six truck beds! They are also 20% larger than the competitors at the same price. 


The self service for Junk King uses our compact roll-away MINI dumpsters. They can handle more than a ton of weight, meaning multiple appliances. 


According to Waste Management, the Bagster can hold 3,300 pounds. It holds less than the Junk King MINI but cannot carry significant items like appliances. 


Container Size


What Makes Junk King Different


When people begin researching junk removal options, they may be tempted to think that size directly correlates to price. In reality—weight is usually the price-determining factor. (Although this is not the case for Junk King!)


Container size is also important to pay attention to because the interior space is limited, even on the biggest junk vehicles. 


Professional dumpsters come in a few resident-available sizes: 10, 20, 30, or 40-cubic yards. Regardless of which size is picked, if it’s not from Junk King, you’re in for an eyesore and a smelly weekend. 


The full service method of Junk King involves the use of our Big Red Trucks. These trucks can haul 25-cubic yards of junk and trash from your home. That’s more than the 20-cubic yards offered by competitors and without the assistance provided by professionals. 


The self service option for Junk King consists of dropping off our rental MINI dumpster. The interior of our compact vehicles can hold 12 cubic yards of junk. That is 2 cubic yards more than the competitors at the same price point. 


The Bagster is only able to hold a maximum of 3 cubic yards. That means no appliances, no large objects, and no difficult (i.e., sharp) objects.


How Much Does a Full Service Junk Hauler Cost?


Junk King Cobb County


Prices for a professional junk removal team will vary depending on many factors. Nationally, the average removal price can be between $250 to $1,800. The cost of junk hauling is determined based on location, service type, pricing calculations, after-care, if any, the complexity of the removal, and labor. 


In the case of Junk King, self service prices range from $169 to $599. Prices are determined based on the volume of junk and trash. 


Junk King’s full service ranges from $99-$800. Prices for our Big Red Trucks are also determined based on the volume once the job is done. 


How Much Does a Bagster Rental Cost?


If there were a Bagster price list, there would be two separate charges. Bagsters must be obtained through third-party distributors like home improvement stores. Typically this buy-in price is $30. 


After this, the owner is free to keep it until they need it removed. The cost of a Bagster pick up is determined by weight. Average Bagster prices cost around $160, though this will change depending on location.

Why You Should Do Your Research First When Choosing the Right One for Your Needs


Full-scale junk removal companies are great at many things. That doesn’t mean that they are right for every situation or budget. It’s vital to do your research before deciding which service to use. 


Generally, junk removal services are suitable for complex or voluminous removals, whereas the Bagster would be better for small-scale or seasonal clean ups. 


For example, an excellent time to order a professional removal service for residential property could be:


  • When cleaning and preparing to move
  • During demolition, building, or remodeling
  • When cleaning up after a disaster 


Conversely, business owners or property managers might order a professional service at these times:



On the other side of the coin, anyone thinking about ordering a Bagster might do so during these times:


  • From the beginning of the gardening season until the end harvest
  • From the beginning of a large project until the end of it
  • Before a holiday, for cleaning before and after a party
