ABOUT 1800-GOT-JUNK:

In 1989, college student Brian Scudamore encountered a tight summer job market in his hometown of Vancouver, Canada. So, after seeing an old, junk-hauling truck rumbling along a McDonald’s drive-thru, he was inspired to start his own business. He named his junk removal service “The Rubbish Boys” and used the slogan: “We’ll Stash Your Trash in a Flash!” What began as a means to pay for college quickly turned into a unique business – a franchise of professional junk removal.

Brian changed the company name to 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, invested in more trucks, hired great people, and set a goal to build a brand that would become a household name. Since 1998, the company has grown to approximately 200 locations across three countries.

1-800-GOT-JUNK? makes the ordinary business of junk removal exceptional. We create space and peace of mind when junk gets in the way. Whether it’s an unwanted sofa, a pile of household junk in the garage, or a warehouse full of unused office furnishings,1-800-GOT-JUNK? removes it for you. In keeping with our environmental goals to divert items from the landfill, wherever possible, we will donate items to charity and recycle.

eSAX podcast featuring Nicole Darechuk of Terradare Solutions with Jarrod Goldsmith

Nicole Darechuk sits down with Jarrod and talks about leaving a corporate environment and how she got right into entrepreneurship.

ABOUT Nicole Darechuk:

Nicole primarily focuses on driving growth of Terradare from leading the execution of the business growth plan aligned to the company mission, vision and values. She also works with companies to help them merge technology with process.

ABOUT Terradare Solutions:

Terradare was founded, by Nicole Darechuk in 2015, with a mission to provide creative automation solutions to companies that want to improve how they do business by combining technology and people-focused processes.

This has been a passion of Nicole’s for many years while honing her technology skills in both small and some large organizations. Juggling the day to day tasks while trying to integrate automation would often lead to ebbs and flows in finishing projects and making improvements. A common problem in most organizations (or so we hear!)

Solution? Start a company that provides consistent focus on automation and keep the services simple.

It was just one small change in mindset that resulted in the launch of Terradare Inc.

As an organization, Terradare is focused on supporting its’ clients with iterative automation solutions as a means of providing consistency and a simple approach to making changes that are the least disruptive.

Ask yourselves…why “throw out” what is working for you, when you can spend less time and money by making iterative changes to improve it?

Answer: You don’t have to.
