Junk Removal - Jerry Hauls It All -Orange County NY, Hudson Valley, NY. - About Us - Jerry Dowling
Hi, I'm, Jerry Dowling and here is the story of how Jerry Hauls It All got it's start.
I started in the workforce around 1977 with delivering the local Times Herald Record, mowing lawns and other related yard work and odd jobs. I also worked as a laborer at a local Goshen, NY. farm that Mr. Tony Koryicki owned and operated. My duties on the farm consisted of various odd jobs and harvesting the farm's large abundant hay fields. I also worked as a service clerk at the famous Lloyd's Supermarket and Super Center in Middletown, NY. while still attending highschool. Upon graduating from Goshen High School in 1984 I worked for a large successful landscaping and design company located in Bergen County, New Jersey. In the fall of 1986 I was given the oppurtunity to work at a high end local retail furniture design center located in Middletown, NY. as a delivery and set-up driver. After just a couple of years of very hard work and many long hours I was then able to move up the ranks to the position of "warehouse/delivery manager". My position involved receiving, inventory control, customer service, managing several employees and distribution of new furniture to residential homes through out Orange County and beyond. Unfortunately, after several great successful years in business they started to experience financial difficulties and were forced to close their doors in June 1996'. I was totally devastated at this time as I had my family to support. I immediately took a job in a large residential treatment center for physically and mentally challenged kids and adults known as Sullivan Diagnostic Treatment Center located in Harris, NY. I held the position of purchasing agent for the entire center. The job included ordering, purchasing, receiving and distribution of supplies through the center. During this time, I continued to pursue other career opportunities. I took several civil service exams and I was offered a government pension job as a New York State correction officer in May of 1997.
Working in the prison system as a New York State Correction Officer was a very good life experience. However, the job itself was not very rewarding. I felt very stagnant but I still I continued to learn as much as I could. I took a promotional exam to better utilize my managerial skills which would allow me to perform other types of duties within the prison system. .
I've always enjoyed working with the public . During the late 1990's I came up with a sort of a "hobby idea" of cleaning out estates for "FREE" because I thought it would be both fun and I could help people. I performed this service with two local Goshen High School teenagers that lived in my neighborhood . Both these kids were very instumental with this terrific service. They both were great kids with awesome qualities. I always tried to teach them things that would help them later in life. These young men looked up to me as a"Father" figure. The kids and I were always fascinated with flea markets, thrift stores and garage sale items. In the beginning, I attempted to purchase a thrift store outside of Middletown, NY. *Due to unforeseen events, this never took place as the building had too many code violations from the prior owners. I was a little disappointed but I wasn't about to give up. Then, I then decided it would be best to purchase a large open cargo van and rent storage barns in which I would fill with the many items we were collecting from various clean outs we did. Next, I began to run many ads in local newspapers as “The Retriever Team” - 845-374-6110 and realized the power of advertising. I quickly developed a great name for myself after just a couple of years and an outstanding reputation for removing "usable items" for FREE. Unfortunately there was a lot of time devoted to picking up every one elses "junk" across the entire region. Many times we would have to pay expensive landfill dumping fees out of our pockets to dispose of folks unwanted items. I decided there had to be a better way to make this a real legitimate organized full service junk removal business. Upon careful consideration and many long hours of intense brain storm sessions, I was able to create a plan to make my hobby or dream turn into a money making business.
It was in September 2003 that I decided to turn my hobby into a well needed service business. I created a full service junk removal company called Jerry -“Hauls It All”, Inc. During this whole time I was still working midnights as a Correction Officer in the New York State prison system. It was very difficult to work two full-time jobs and it was wearing on my family and I. In the beginning of Jerry Hauls It All, I would do just about any kind of removal job just to get my name out there. During this time period I invested most of the money I earned right back into the business through heavy BRAND advertising in the area. After only a few short years, the brand became very well known. I honestly can say that through all my hard work I am known through out the community and surrounding areas as one of the original local full-service junk removal companies. We are known as a company that cares, has good standards and puts the customer’s needs first. In the beginning, I started with cleaning out attics, basements, garages and sheds, now we’ve grown to a full service clean-out and junk removal company. I have expanded my business to include complete demolition work of many structures, such as pools, decks, sheds, barns, fences, garages, etc. I see it through from beginning to end and also offer dumpster container rentals as part of our services too.
In June 2007 I made a decision to vest my "pension" with the State. I decided I needed to be in the driver’s seat of my business and I wanted to move to the "next level" with my established company. I also wanted to be able to reap the rewards of all my hard work and to give my personal family life more priority. I want more of a balance between personal and work. It is now my goal to become the best in my business and to become the best person I can be. I thank all my past and present customers for believing in me and helping me to grow my business to where it is today. Most of all I'd like to thank God and my entire family and friends for giving me their love and encouragement duing this wonderful journey.
