Bend startup expands from junk removal service to holiday lights assist, now offering 2 giveaways

(Update: Adding video, comments from a co-founder and customer)

BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- Live Junkless is offering a giveaway to one person for a free junk removal, removing a full truck of unwanted stuff for you. And its affiliated effort, Bend Lights, is doing a full holiday installation for a family in town.

Brett Williams and Adam Jorgensen of Bend created Live Junkless and Bend Lights, to help you clean out your junk, and also help get you ready for Christmas.

"Adam and I started this business about a year and a half ago," Williams said Tuesday. "We had some folks -- friends -- that reached out, and asked us to remove some items for them. We had a pickup truck, and they couldn't physically remove some items, they were heavier, and so they reached out."  

The Live Junkless founders say you're one call away from freeing your space of junk.

Customer and Bend resident Cooper House said, "I had a bunch of stuff that I needed to get rid of, like a bunch of just random stuff -- stuff I was holding on way too long that I just needed to get of the house before I ended up moving onto another rental. They got all the stuff out for me, and super-uick and came out the next day that I called. So that was really awesome." 

Bend Lights, meanwhile, installs holiday light displays to spread the holiday cheer, and to make your Christmas chores a little bit easier.

"I know they run a Christmas light business, as well," House said. "I would really like them to come out and do the lights on my house, as well. I would definitely recommend them to anybody."

Bend Lights started putting up lights the first week of October and continues until the second week of December.

"For both Bend Lights and Live Junkless, we service of all Central Oregon," Williams said. "All the way up to Madras, down to La Pine. Pretty much everywhere in between is what we typically say. "

Live Junkless offers a free in-person estimate for their services, and Bend Lights charges by the linear foot.

"Our favorite part of both businesses is being able to help these folks," William added. "Most people that reach out to us just usually can't do it themselves, whether that's lack of physical capability or they don't have a vehicle to transport things. We get to see the direct impact of both junk removal and Christmas lights, which, for us is our favorite part of the job." 

Live Junkless offers a variety of services, from shed removal to carpet removal and even appliance removal.

If you want to enter the giveaway, you can go to its social media pages to fill out a Google form link.

"More than 200 people in Central Oregon have called Junkless to remove their junk –– and given us five-stars for service," says Williams, the company founder.
