Who We Are
AnyJunk is the largest man & van clearance company in the UK.
We were founded in 2004 by a former investment banker, Jason Mohr. He quit the City to reinvent rubbish clearance through service, responsible disposal, and scale.
Starting from a single truck, the business grew steadily. Today we undertake more than 1,500 clearances every week. As well as serving householders and offices directly, we also provide regional and national waste collection solutions to some of the country’s largest retailers, insurance companies, and building contractors.
In addition to man & van rubbish clearance, we have a national skip hire business called Loveskips.
Originally we did all the clearances with our own staff and vehicles. However, in 2015 we changed our operating model to a platform approach similar to Uber’s. As a result, we now have some pretty snazzy technology and an extensive network of approved, independent waste carriers (our ‘Service Partners’) who connect to us digitally and undertake collections as our agent.
Unlike employees and traditional subcontractors, Service Partners are not obliged to undertake jobs for us. They choose to do so when a job suits their capacity and location. This change in operating model has delivered dramatic improvements in our response speeds, scalability, capacity management, and carbon footprint.
Vision, Values & White Elephant
Our vision is to be the first choice for removing anything that’s too big for the bin.
We aim to achieve this vision by delivering a competitive and market leading service that embodies our five core values:
- Happy teams make happy customers
- Open & Honest – the opposite of a faceless corporate
- Responsible – in how we work and how we dispose
- Service to proud of – every job and every day
- Improving – it should always feel we are getting better
The more eagle eyed of you will note that putting the first letter of each core value together spells ‘HORSI’ which is as close to an elephant as we can get.
Which brings us nicely to our white elephant logo. We chose a white elephant because elephants are lovable big guys that can move lots of stuff and also because of the expression ‘white elephant stall’, which is a place where people can get rid of used items they no longer want.
