Everybody Has a Story — Here’s Junk Buddy’s Story

Human beings all have a story. Businesses have a story. Sometimes, when you get to know someone’s story, you’ll want to support them or do business with them even more! Here is our story.

The Beginning

As a young man in his 20’s, Joshua Deuley started out working in the repossession and landscaping fields to make ends meet in Tampa. He didn’t choose the college track. He got married to a beautiful loving woman and starting having children. Joshua and his wife now have five incredible children.

When Joshua was 25, he started reading and listening to personal development materials. His favorites that inspired him over the years are Les Brown, Jim John, Tony Robbins, Andy Firisella and Grant Cardone. Absorbing messages and thoughts from these highly motivational leaders put Joshua onto the path of taking action on his ideas. He realized that he could create what he wanted and who he wanted to be.

Driven to make a difference for himself, his family and to bring value to the world and the Tampa Bay community, Joshua started thinking about developing a business and changing his career direction. The junk removal industry was a concept that he came across. As a blue-collar guy, Joshua said, “I can do that and do it better than anyone else”.

“It is all about how can we serve others through our business, which I credit Jesus Christ with that part. Everything in my life, good or bad, has created the idea of being the best to help others. I heard a great quote from Ed Mylett, ‘Life doesn’t happen to us; it happens for us’,” states Joshua Deuley. 

What Junk Buddy is about?

Junk Buddy is a vehicle where we get to help people. We help our clients with solving their hauling needs, creating employment in our community, donating furniture to help people in need. It is a win-win all around!

Joshua exclaims “I’m thankful for our team because we have a lot of moving parts and we have really worked hard together to provide an amazing service where most people don’t expect it”.

Starting the business

Junk Buddy Junk Removal Services was started in 2015 with the idea to have a positive impact with amazing service. Each day we go out into our community and remove and haul away the junk in a professional manner for you. After our truck team leaves, we do our best to donate and recycle before heading to the local transfer station. Our customers feel great knowing they don’t have to break a sweat to get their clutter clean and by using our Junk removal service they’ll have a positive impact on the environment and people in need.
