About Junk Hunters

Junk Hunters are specialists in ‘waste’ removal and recycling. With huge market potential covering domestic, commercial and construction clients you can build a business with a consistent demand for your services. Founded in 2012 by Sri Lankan Entrepreneur Harsha Rathnayake Junk Hunters operate a fleet of specially adapted highly branded trucks. Not only do Junk Hunters provide the trucks, their teams of trained operatives also provide the labour. Unlike hiring a skip, clients do not need to lift a finger as everything from the removal of a single item, through to a complete site clearance will be taken care of by Junk Hunters.

The Junk Hunters Franchise Model

Junk Hunters believe in choice. As a prospective franchisee therefore you have the choice of;

  • Two specially adapted Truck sizes 3.5 tonne or 6.5 tonne
  • Operating as a Management Franchise where your role is business development and marketing and you employ a driver or;
  • Driving the truck yourself as an Operator Franchisee thus reducing your overheads
  • Operating from home
  • Being premises based
  • Operating with a single vehicle
  • Scaling up to a multi-truck operation

Not all waste is ‘Junk!’

One person’s ‘junk’ may well turn out to be someone else’s prized possession and you will find that to be true as a Junk Hunter franchisee!

Many of the items that we are asked to collect have a re-sale value. Metal, wood and cardboard can all be sold to specialist re-cycling centres.  Second Hand furniture outlets specialising in office or household furniture are also a source of income and individual items can be sold through a number of on line portals. Some of the more unusual items that Junk Hunters have been asked to collect include a Charles Dickens 1st Edition book, Louis Vuitton handbags and a full size snooker table and trophies!

The income from any item that you sell will not be subject to any fees payable to Junk Hunters so you keep 100% of the profit!

Training and support

A major benefit of owning a franchise is that you will be replicating the existing successful business model that your franchisor has established. The training and support that you receive will ensure that you will avoid replicating any mistakes that your franchisor might have made when establishing his original business.

Induction Training will take place at Junk Hunter’s Head Office in London. It will be a mixture of practical training where you will spend some time with an existing team ‘on the truck’ assisting with jobs as well as classroom training covering; the legislation associated with the industry, the Junk Hunters Management System and the range of marketing strategies that you will use to gain business. This training will be followed up by practical support back at your territory in order to get your franchise established and to work with you to gain your initial clients.

The Ideal Junk Hunter

Harsha, the founder of Junk Hunters built his business up to a multi-vehicle operation through hard work and determination which are two of the pre-requisites of any Junk Hunters franchisee.

A Junk Hunters franchisee can be from any background. You may have previous experience of driving a truck or business development and marketing experience. Irrespective of what your job was previously, Junk Hunters will give you the opportunity to be a business owner assuming that you have;

  • The ambition to build a business
  • A willingness to replicate an operating system that has proved to be successful
  • The ability to relate to people at all levels
  • A desire to provide an outstanding service by putting the customer first 

We may be a ‘Rubbish Franchise’ but Junk Hunters offers a fantastic opportunity for you to change your future!
