Do Junk Removal Companies Take Credit Cards?

Feb 26, 2014 | Blog, Frequently Asked Questions

Are you looking to hire a junk removal service? Great! But you may be wondering about what kinds of payment they take for their services. More specifically, ‘Do Junk Removal Companies Take Credit Cards?’. Lucky for you, here at Fire Dawgs we have the answer for YOU! Keep reading to learn more!

Do Junk Removal Companies Take Credit Cards?

Answer: The short and simple answer is, YES! There is a common misconception within the junk removal and hauling industry that “Cash is King!” Companies that deal in cash only deals normally do that so they can do a spin move on Uncle Sam or so they can get out on paying insurance that is necessary to protect employees and you, the customer. So, regardless of whether you go with Fire Dawgs or any other company, if you call a provider that does “Cash Only” or makes an uncomfortable push to get you to pay cash in return for a discount, then you need to take pause and raise the Red Flag.

Further Details On Payment

Regarding credit card payment,  Customers can also pay with a check, but if the check is returned NSF, or insufficient funds, then there is a $25 charge to cover our returned check fee. We still accept cash, but it is a last resort. Our company is working toward a cashless system so that our crews are not carrying around a lot of cash throughout the day thereby ensuring their safety while out providing excellent customer service.

We are able to accept credit cards over the phone and in person with our removers. We use Square, which is an incredibly safe and useful company that makes life easy for small businesses and customers. Square charges merchants, like Fire Dawgs, 3% and $0.15 for each credit card transaction. The state of Indiana adopted a law in 2013 that allows merchants to charge back the credit card transaction fee to customers to that companies don’t feel the need to overcompensate and up their service charges. So, we keep our prices the same and just charge back the 3% should you choose to pay with credit card. We just eat the $0.15 to avoid confusion and keep the transaction seamless.
