Clearabee Review

How does AnyJunk compare to Clearabee?

Review of Clearabee compared to AnyJunk

We’ve nothing against healthy competition – it keeps us on our toes.  One competitor, Clearabee, likes to advertise on Google when people search our brand name, so we thought we’d return the favour and provide a quick comparison about how they stack up.

Landfill Diversion

Clearabee states their landfill diversion is 95%.  AnyJunk’s landfill diversion is 97%.

Speed of Response

We both offer a same day service. AnyJunk also offers ‘collection within 2 hours’ in the London region.

Arrival Windows

Clearabee offers ‘2-hour’ arrival slots.  AnyJunk offers ‘1-hour’ arrival slots.

Clearabee Technology vs AnyJunk Technology

AnyJunk’s technology is multi-award winning.  It has been developed in-house by our exceptional team of developers led by a PhD in theoretical computer science.  Our stack has a purely functional backend, built using Scala + Cats on top of a Postgres geospatial database and exposed via a RESTful API. Front-end clients are also built in a functional way using React (JS for web and Native for apps) + Redux and entirely driven by the API.

We understand that Clearabee licenses its system from a third party provider.

Clearabee Prices compared to AnyJunk

Both companies charge by volume.  Clearabee’s prices increase cubic yard by cubic yard (ie. 1, 2, 3, 4 cubic yards etc).  We used to charge like this but a few years ago we shifted to larger size increments (ie. single item, 2 yards, 4 yards, 7 yards, etc) to make it easier for customers to estimate the correct size at booking (and hence how much to pay) and minimise the chance of a pricing surprise when the crew arrives on site.

However, both companies charge for single items of furniture on a standalone basis and the table below shows how we compare.  AnyJunk is a LOT cheaper.

More Information About Clearabee

Clearabee was founded in 2012 and has its head office in Birmingham. It is owned by Daniel Long and Rob Linton. Clearabee’s own collection vehicles comprise mainly Luton vans (like the ones used by removal firms for A to B removal work) and slide door transit vans (typically used by couriers for parcel delivery). They don’t have any depots because all the vehicles are parked outside their employees’ homes overnight.  None of the vehicles are HGVs, which means no O license concerns or tachographs, but payload (ie. ability to carry weight) is limited.
