Hello! My wife and I just recently moved to Mason and we want to get involved in our new community.
OUR STORY: I was a long haul mover for 15 years (48 states) before starting this business in 2008. I started out scrapping offices, warehouses, and stores until the scrap prices dropped from $360 a ton to $5 ton. Then I started hauling junk, but I was finding that some of it was good, reusable stuff. So, I rented a storage unit and started a Free Store, where I gave away everything to keep it out of landfills and get it out to people in need. People kept trying to encourage me to sell some of it to help with costs, but I was happy just giving it away. Then the store got real popular and I didn't have enough space to grow, so I opened the Free & Cheap Store on the North end of Lansing. That grew, so I had to rent a bigger building on South Penn, where the store is now. We have the junk removal at another location and we hope to combine the two locations in 2020.
