We’re an Eau Claire junk pickup & removal company that has a single mission – to help you live a clean, decluttered life. Old fridge stressing you out? Consider it gone. Ancient mattress hurting your back? We’ll make room for the new one. Just remodeled the kitchen, and have old cabinets and flooring all over your backyard? We’ll make it disappear.

Bottom line? If your problem is junk, we’re the solution.

We’re a small, family-owned company that’s committed to doing right by our customers, doing right by the environment, and doing good for the world. You can rest easy knowing that even after your junk is gone, it’s being processed in the most eco-friendly, socially-responsible way possible.

If your house is burstin’, you need Kersten!

We Haul It All!

** Yes, we know you’d like to get rid of them – but we’ve checked. Nobody else wants them either.
We’ll be happy to recommend a good therapist though!

We Make It Easy To Be Junk-Free!

Give us a call.

We’ll give you a free quote with one price that includes everything. For certain jobs, we may have to stop out and take a look – but there are no gimmicks, no surprises, no hidden fees. The only finger you’ll have to lift is the one that dials the phone!

Schedule your pickup.

We pride ourselves in being able to get to you fast. We can usually do the same day or the next day, but if you’d like to schedule further out that’s fine too. Just let us know!

We show up on time and in uniform.

Our team aren’t the stereotypical “junk guys.” We show up when we say we will, neatly dressed and ready to work. We’ll treat your home and your items as if they were our own! And if you decide you want us to haul off even more, no problem – our add-on rates are very reasonable.

We collect payment when the job is done.

Give us your card, hand us cash, or you can even write us a check if necessary. The price we quoted you will always be the price you pay at the end!

We’ll Make Your Junk Make A Difference

We take all of your stuff, and we figure out what to do with it. Depending on what it is and the condition it’s in, a number of different things may happen to the things we remove from your home.

We donate

Our first choice is to donate everything that is in donatable condition. We donate to Hope Gospel Mission, The Salvation Army, Catholic Charities, and any other organization that accepts donations. 

We recycle

Taking care of the planet is very important to us. That’s why we maintain relationships with the various places that can take recyclable items. All remaining items (or sometimes, parts of items) that can be recycled will get recycled.

We dispose

We hate having to do this, so it’s really the last option. Sometimes though, the donation centers don’t want something. And unfortunately, not everything can be recycled. If that’s the case, we’ll haul things off to the landfill.

We Give Back To The Community

Many of the things we haul off still have some good life left in them. For things that are likely to move quickly we’ll frequently turn around and list them on a local marketplace for an affordable price. Proceeds from those sales – 100% of them – go to a local nonprofit that helps people right here in our community.

Previously we’d helped “Power Of Perception” – a local organization that’s focused on providing leadership mentoring African American & biracial youth in the Chippewa Valley.

We’re currently helping Sojourner House in Eau Claire, a Catholic Charities homeless ministry. Sojourner House helps people rebuild their lives, and re-engage in the the greater community. We’re helping them by donating warm clothes, and providing packaged lunches. See all the info in our latest video, and if you’d like to partner with us in supporting Sojourner House or other worthy local organizations, please reach out – (715) 598-3677. We’d love to talk to you!

Jason and his team are top notch. I called him extremely last minute to move a pool table out of a basement and they had it out in 48 hours. Fast, friendly, and very reasonable pricing. I highly recommend Kersten Family Junk Removal.

positive review It’s been a hard week working 50 plus hours and having to move in the midst of it all. I left things out on the curb hoping that there would be folks to pick them up free of charge. After the weekend there obviously was still a good amount of items. After telling my landlord I’d have them removed by Monday I was stressing for time. I googled up junk removal and just like that Kersten Family Junk Removal services showed up. I called, recieved my quote, was able to conveniently send photos for a price quote and they came out and took care of the rest. What a wonderful business putting people’s mind at ease when moving. Reasonable price, excellent customer service, and attentive!! I will be using their service again in the near future!
Thank you!

positive review Jason was great to communicate with and the services he and his team provided were excellent. I would highly recommend working with him. He removed an old play set and basketball hoop pole. This was completed in the time frame he quoted. Great service!
