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.
