Rental a dumpster to help with construction, demolition, or remodeling projects is very easy. However, here are the basics to do so:
First, contact several different dumpster rental businesses in your area and describe your project in detail. Have sizes and quantities ready to describe to each person that answers the phone. You can also ask for references. When renting, ask if there is a charge for returning the dumpster to you and also for the price of one large dumpster.
Second, tell the person that will be renting the dumpster what you expect them to do with it. For example, would they just haul away the debris, or would they be loading and unloading it? What is the proximity of the dumpster location to other construction or demolition sites? Asking these questions will give you a better sense of the company that will be renting the dumpster.
Third, be specific about what you want them to do with your debris. Are you looking for them to pick up debris, load it into dumpsters, and then remove it? Or do you want them to clear a job site? What is their schedule for pickup/load/unload? Ask for a written estimate of this work, including pickup and drop off times, and mileage charges.
Fourth, when asked what they will do with your debris, suggest that they contact your city’s trash department for further information. Your city will likely have some regulations regarding construction dumpster rentals, disposal of trash, and how much is the minimum fee. If no fees apply, find out what kind of disposal options are available. Make sure you understand what options you do have, and what they will cost you.
Fifth, don’t assume that the company will take everything. Ask if they are able to store any waste material that you provide. A construction dumpster usually requires at least a 20-foot to forty-foot run for hauling anything larger than a mattress or box spring. They may also require that you haul large drums or dumpsters with them, to help contain the waste. Be sure to ask if they can store it.
Sixth, don’t be afraid to let the professional know that you do have a problem or need more space. Don’t be afraid to tell the person you spoke to that you need more time to move the waste. Most companies give you plenty of time to rent roll-off dumpsters, pick it up, and have it taken the same day. When you rent a container, you should know exactly what you are paying for, and you should be happy with whatever you get.
Construction dumpsters come in a variety of different sizes and shapes. Be sure to consider the shape of your yard before you rent. Smaller dumpsters are often good for small jobs, and if you get one that is too large for what you need, you risk having it rammed into your driveway. The size of the container will depend on the job you need to complete, so always keep this in mind when you contact rental companies.
Also, keep in mind that construction dumpsters can be used for other things as well. Some companies may only offer the service to haul trash. However, others will haul away construction debris and large items from any home or business. This is great news for homeowners, because you don’t have to take the time and expense of building a landfill. Rather, you can order a dumpster and haul any unwanted material away.
It can be convenient to hire a company that will meet your needs for both residential and commercial demolition projects. They can provide a variety of services, depending on the project. For residential projects, they will usually provide a single large dumpster, along with several smaller ones. This can give you plenty of space for large items, but small landscaping items can also be accommodated in a single container. For commercial projects, larger dumpsters are used for large demolition jobs.
A good construction dumpster rental company will have what you need, whether it’s a residential or commercial construction site. They should have a large variety of sizes and make sure to carry enough to meet your needs. You’ll want to know how much square footage they are going to haul off so you get an accurate estimate. The good companies will even have an estimate for the square footage as well, so that you don’t waste precious square footage just to get a smaller dumpster.
Construction dumpsters can be rented for a long or short duration. Longer rentals are ideal when you need to clear a large area quickly. Smaller ones are ideal if you are renovating an old house or building and have room for the dumpster and other accessories. Dumpsters come in a variety of shapes and sizes and depending on the project you are taking care of, you may need a larger size dumpster. Construction dumpsters and roll-off services are a great way to complete your project on a tight budget and have all the debris picked up and hauled away safely and quickly. It can take a few days to clean out but you’ll have the satisfaction that you’ve completed the job and the space is free from debris.
