If this is your first time renting a dumpster, then you're on the right page!
We'll help guide you through what questions to ask, how dumpster rental pricing works, and determining what size dumpster you'll need for your project.
The first thing you'll want to do before you call a local dumpster rental company is to identify all the details of your project. Specifically, you'll need to know timeframes, debris types, approximate volume and size of the debris, and any coordination that needs to take place with potential third parties (for example contractors and laborers).
If you're renting a smaller dumpster like a 3-yard dumpster, you should have no issues with placement. The smaller dumpsters typically have wheels and can be easily maneuvered around your property. However, roll-off dumpsters are much different. Once the roll-off dumpster is dropped, you won't be able to move locations so it's important that you have a flat and secure surface with plenty of room for the roll-off truck to deliver it.
Once you've identified your project details and decided where you want the dumpster placed, it's time to start gathering pricing information.
Be cautious with companies offering the cheapest prices as you may incur added fees for things like "extended service area" or "service fees".
Most pricing is offered as a "Base Rental Fee" which includes delivery and pickup of the dumpster, a specified rental period, and included tonnage.
Many people assume that dumpster rentals are a flat rate. However, most base fees will include a specified tonnage (ie. "3-tons included"). This means you'll be able to fill your dumpster with the included tonnage, but incur additional per ton fees for anything over what is included.
Select your dumpster size: after gathering the pricing information you'll select the dumpster size that suits your project needs. Most rental companies offer multiple sizes ranging from 3-yards to 40-yards.
Once your dumpster has been delivered, you'll want to start loading it as soon as possible to ensure you're job is complete within the given rental period.
Once you're done with the dumpster, it's time to schedule your pickup. There are generally a few options available for pickup depending on the dumpster rental company you're working with.
