About this mod

Many quests, many companions, cardboard insoles and reference to psychedelic drugs being useful.

Permissions and credits

Version 1_40 fixes bugs found in Alchestbreach's review. See the Videos tab on this page.

If you like this mod endorsing it really goes a long way.

PS: have begun remaking this mod for TTW. Will be set east of Springvale and will be refined and evolved. Almost an entirely new experience.

Welcome to Garbage Guru Hauling & Free Store

You recall a rumor going around that the Garbage Gurus were looking for workers. Musing how you've never visited the place before you consider checking them out... what exactly is a 'free store'?


Garbage Guru Hauling & Free Store is a companion rich, multi-quest mod that follows the adventures of the family-run junk hauling business of the Garbage Gurus.

If you're using JIP Companions Command and Control, I've included avatars for each companion.


Basic. If using NMM or MO you may be able to 'Download with manager' then just activate it.

Otherwise, after downloading, you can either add it as a FOMOD through FOMM or just unrar the file and cut/copy and paste the Data folder into the game directory folder (where their Data folder is along with the main game .exe).


Basic uninstall using NMM, MO or FOMM.

To manually uninstall you can review the file .rar to see what files are in there, then delete them from the Data folder in the game folder.

Patches and Optional Files

Included on file download page-

1- IWS (Increased Wasteland Spawns) Patch - removes spawning point on a couple of exterior cells

2- Power-up instantly grants 15000 XP and places weapons and caps in a crate outside Chet's in Goodsprings- for mod testing

Known Issues and Bugs

Issue #1- voices. Some voices will be uploaded in a separate files to give the option of having no voice acting (not including chicken and robot voices and a few of the main npcs) if it is too rough/modulated for the player.

Its at this point where I invite other GECK users, if they like this mod and feel like participating in its blossoming, to help. I cannot commit to supporting it for more than a couple of weeks (my life may be about to no longer include computer access) after its upload onto the Nexus and would equate the public's involvement in making AddOns of voice files and such to winning the lottery.

Issue #2- This mod was made on an HP DV7 Entertainment Laptop and has therefore not been tested with any HQ texture packs or 'processing intensive' mods.


Will conflict with mods that place anything across the road on the right of Trudy's. Hoping for feedback in this area so patches can be made.

Rivens Goodsprings Vendor_Plus Mannequins seems to be in the same spot but is not currently available on the nexus so I can't make a patch for it.

To the coders and scripters that make up this community.

To Bethesda for conduiting the GECK and the fantastic universe it avails.

To the NifScope people, the Photoshop people, the NVEdit people, the LOOT people, etc... None of this would ever be possible without their inspired contributions in the systems/programming world.

I would rather this mod not exist than have it become a paid mod.
