The typical price range for your job type and size appears as you create a listing. Offer top of the range to get matched in seconds. Offer towards the bottom of the range if you have time to receive Counter Offers and find the best deal available.
A price estimate range appears as you create a listing. Visit our Job Gallery and filter by junk type for prices of similar jobs to yours. Exact price depends on size and type of junk, ease of loading, pick up day and timeslot flexibility. For more info read our Detailed Price Guidance
A Counter Offer is an offer from a collector to collect for a different price or at a different time than you offered in the listing. Collectors can make Counter Offers any time before your collection is due but each must be cheaper than the last. Accept or ignore Counter Offers as you like, but please don’t take offence if an early one seems high. Just wait for a better one to come afterwards
A Reuse Offer is a request from someone (one of our JunkLovers) to collect your item for free because they intend to reuse it. If you accept, they will pick up the item for no charge and your only cost will be a £10 matching fee paid to LoveJunk after a successful pick up.
Listings are normally claimed or receive Counter Offers within seconds. No response is usually because photos or description are unclear or inaccurate, your offer price is so low that collectors don’t take you seriously, or pickup time is very challenging (eg. Sun 22:00–00:00 and only listed Sunday afternoon).
You can change your offer price any time using a button in the listing. This sends out a notification to nearby collectors with the revised price. To edit anything else, just cancel the listing using the Cancel button (you will not be charged) and repost with revised details.
You can cancel your listing any time before it is matched to a collector. If you need to rearrange a collection after the job has been matched, please contact your collector directly. Under our Terms, you can be charged a wasted journey fee (£20) if you cancel a collection once a collector is already on their way or at site.
If no collector claims your listing and the best Counter Offer is above what you’re willing to pay, try increasing your offer price to stimulate collectors’ interest by tapping the Increase Price button in your listing. This sends out a new notification to collectors. If no collector claims your job before the start of your specified collection time slot, the listing will lapse. You will not be charged and can easily repost, perhaps offering a clearer description or more flexible timeslot?
The price includes VAT if the collector of your junk is VAT registered. Most collectors on LoveJunk are VAT registered, so most of the time the price will include VAT. If applicable, VAT will show in Counter Offer notifications and your final receipt.
Yes. Every collector using the LoveJunk platform is registered with the Environment Agency as a licensed waste carrier and insured to remove waste. We also verify their business address and bank details and check references before allowing them to join.
Around 1 in 3 of LoveJunk listings marked as potentially 'reusable' by customers end up being reused, instead of being destroyed. On average over 97% of all junk collected via the platform avoids landfill. Exact recycling % depends on your junk and the disposal facility used by your collector and is shown on the waste documentation provided after your collection.
