Welcome and good luck.
The best type of advertising is to have your company name and what you do, on your truck.
As you said, copy ideas from 1-800 get junk.
Since you have a flyer service, that would also help.
The final and best FREE advertising is to get your local newspaper or T V station to run a story about you and your business.
Pick a charity and donate part of your income to the charity.
All the best in this coming holiday season.

I operate a small junk/trash/debris removal service in the Raleigh/Durham area of North Carolina. I have been running it for about six months with great sucess largely from craigslist ads. Well I'm ready to become independent and was wondering what kind of advertising I should do for a junk removal service. I am just starting a flyer delivery service as well and I will have a flyer for junk removal in my door hanger packet. But I'm looking for other ways as well. My website is www.triangleremoval.com if you want to get an idea of what I'm doing. You should also look at 1-800-Got-Junk and College Hunks Hauling Junk. They are the most well known companies in the junk removal industry. I look forward to the feedback.
