BLUE COLLAR HAULER SEAN FROM JUNKIT

Posted in Stories

Junkit

When a random project turns into a business opportunity, which in turn becomes a family business that allows your wife to be home with the kids and your whole family to work together, you've pretty much won the "job lottery" so to speak. A lot of people dream of being able to make a go of it, but few are willing to take the leap and put in the work to make it happen. This Blue Collar Hauler did, and we'd say the payoff has been worth it.

Let's get on to Sean's story!

WHO ARE YOU AND WHERE ARE YOU FROM?

I’m Sean and we’re Junkit, a family-owned and operated small business in a pretty quiet but rapidly growing city of Beaumont, CA.

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?

We started the idea in 2021 after my aunt needed her patio demoed and I had no trailer to haul it away. Shortly after, my mother-in-law needed some trash hauled from her remote home in Chino Valley, AZ. So we needed a way to haul her trash and just have a multi-purpose trailer, in general, available for use when we needed it in the future. We purchased our first MAXX-D 16ft utility trailer in February 2022. Several months later we saw our business rapidly growing and needed a bigger, better, and more useful trailer for trash hauling and now dumpster rental so we thought what better than to buy the most hooked-up MAXX-D roll-off system. We purchased all of our MAXX-D equipment in Beaumont, CA at Alliance Trailer. They’ve been great and have helped our business flourish.

Rolling Operations

This Blue Collar Hauler needed a dump trailer for his own project so he decided to just buy one and then rent it out when he wasn't using it. When this worked well he bought more bins, equipment, and more and now he's in business so to speak.

Let's get on to Clayton's story!

WHO ARE YOU AND WHERE ARE YOU FROM?

Clayton Roll, I am the owner of Rolling Operations. I currently live in my hometown of Quincy, IL.

WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING?

I consider myself a full-time "side hustler." Someone less of a redneck may call me an entrepreneur. Although my primary source of income is from my dumpster business, I also rent out shipping containers for storage, manage and own several apartment buildings, and rent out several pieces of excavation equipment. If I own it, I'm always interested in renting it to someone. I have found that this method allows me to overlap service offerings because my company will utilize the rental equipment for large junk removal projects, light demolition, or even land-clearing jobs.

WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING?

My family-run business, The Perfect Lawn LLC, specializes in producing the most beautiful lawns - period! We are unique in our bespoke approach in not having a blanket program for all customers. This is important as every lawn is different; soil parameters, irrigation layout and coverage, age, sun/shade exposure, slope and sometimes even grass type can be different within the same neighborhood. The vast majority of our business is full lawn renovations in taking the existing lawn down to dirt, correcting the soil parameters, correcting irrigation gaps, and ultimately producing the most beautiful lawn. Post renovation we offer an annual turf maintenance program that I believe is the most comprehensive in the business. This program is a combination of carefully curated extremely high-quality products that are not only tailored to the Pacific Northwest but also selected for the time of year for the application. Our customers have made an investment in both me and their lawn, we want to keep it healthy and gorgeous for years to come.

In talking to Blue Collar Haulers we find many of them got started because they weren't happy with their previous situation. Most wanted something more flexible, giving them more control of their time and the ability to be with their families more. Enabling men to provide for their families with dignity and honor is one of our core values here at MAXX-D and when we see someone like Josh stepping out with courage and determination to provide for his family and spend more time with them, we get excited to share that story with you.
