Nixxit Junk Removal Team Photo

Nixxit, based out of Castro Valley, CA and Oakland, CA is a small locally owned and operated full- service junk removal company that serves the entire Bay Area.

Yes, we are local. No, we are not franchised – and we take pride in this. It takes grit to build a business completely from the ground up. 

 

Here’s Our Story 

Our team is backed by more than 10+ years of professional experience working previously for the largest junk removal company in the world.

This has taught us that while small businesses and large businesses might operate in the same market, they have significant differences that can have a large effect on business operations. 

Many large junk removal franchises just see the communities they serve as territories.

As a small business that’s rooted in Alameda County and Contra Costa County, Nixxit truly cares about making a difference where we grew up, live, and work.

The owner of Nixxit, Sarah, grew up in Dublin and has been rooted in the Bay Area her entire life. 

The two other hard-working faces of Nixxit are Bryce and David. Bryce grew up in Castro Valley and David grew up in Fremont.

Sarah previously owned another small business while in College. Right out of College, she decided to enter into the Corporate world, working in Marketing. 

Bryce and David both previously worked for the largest blue franchised junk removal company in the world for many years. 

One day the three came together and decided that they were all simply tired of working for large bureaucratic companies and noticed all the things we could do better.

Sarah spent over a year developing Nixxit’s business plan, brand identity, and operations before hitting the ground running. She now oversees all of the back-end of Nixxit, where Bryce and David oversee everything out in the field.

And so the story goes of how Nixxit was started.

Louis M.

Louis (or “Popeye” as he’s known around here), was one of Nixxit’s very first truck team members. If your first question is whether or not he eats a lot of spinach, his answer is “sometimes”. He also welcomes any good Popeye joke.

You can catch him most days working hard in the field. If you’ve ever met or worked with Popeye, you’ve no doubt warmed up to his good vibes. He’s always smiling and putting in extra hours, while always on top of his game. When he is not at work, Popeye spends his free time dirt bike riding and competing.

Drew Cervantez_Nixxit Junk Removal Team

Team Lead/Driver

Drew C.

Drew is a Pittsburg, CA native. While he is originally from the Bay Area, Drew has been living in Hawaii for the last 2.5 years and just recently moved back to California right before joining the team.

Drew is no stranger to hard work. While living in Hawaii (when he wasn’t out enjoying the beaches), Drew spent most of his free time juggling multiple jobs including being a youth wrestling coach for UFC Gym Mililani and Honolulu, working as a Restaurant Shift Manager, and working as a sporting event camera operator at the University of Hawaii.

Being a wrestler for most of his life, he’s always enjoyed how the sport pushed him both mentally and physically. Drew says that wrestling’s taught him a lot about himself and how to deal with life. “Always find a way” is what his coach used to tell him. Which is a great cross-over to working here in the junk removal industry, where most of the job comes down to logistics and problem-solving.

Over his years of coaching at a youth level, he’s been able to pass along this knowledge and life advice to other young athletes whose shoes he has been in before – something he is passionate about.

In his spare time, Drew enjoys spending time with his Australian Cattle Dog/Chihuahua pup, named Arvo, who was rescued from a shelter in Hawaii. He also enjoys spending time with family and friends, watching Netflix, and napping (same Drew, same).
