Our Story

In 2014, Bernard was in the business of buying storage units at auction with visions of being the next star of Storage Wars. A treasure hunter at heart, after winning a few auctions he did find some hidden gems; but he realized he was mostly paying to get rid of other people’s junk. He had his lightbulb moment and thought “maybe people would pay me to get rid of their junk” and a business was born. What started as a hobby on the weekend, turned into what you now know as Twin Ports Trailer Trash. It all began with a pickup truck, a trailer, and a funny company name. Malcolm joined the team as Bernard’s business partner in 2016. Now it has blossomed into the leading junk removal company in the twin ports area.


Along for the ride with Bernard is his wife of 13 years Emily. They have 3 children — 4 year old twin girls and a new baby boy.
