Our Story

Our Story

Junkyard Angel was founded by Vancouver resident Johannes von Stefenelli in 1998. Concern about the environment was on the rise at that time, and Johannes saw a need for an environmentally responsible junk removal company, one that would divert as much material as possible to be reused or recycled. Johannes founded Junkyard Angel to be that company.

The company has grown steadily since then. Our original vehicle was a Volkswagen van; today we use a Ford F-250 pickup truck with a dump box insert. But one thing that hasn’t change is our commitment to providing the most environmentally responsible junk removal service in the Lower Mainland.
