3 Things to Consider When Renting a Dumpster

Posted on

Whether you are remodeling your home, landscaping the outside of your home, or just had the party of the century, you may need to rent a dumpster. A dumpster rental can last for a week or a month. Each garbage company may have different dumpster renting plans, and you are likely to find one that will work for you. If you find yourself in a situation where you need to rent a dumpster, there are a few things that you need to know about dumpster rentals. Here are just a few things that are important to know when you rent a dumpster.


When you start looking at a dumpster rental, it is important that you know exactly what you are paying for. Each company can charge a little bit differently. Ask the company exactly what you are paying for, or if the rental includes everything. Some companies will give you a quote, but will not include fees such as gas to get to the landfill and the fee to enter the landfill. Other companies will give you a quote that includes every expense. When you talk to services like Contractors Disposal Inc, ask if the quote includes all costs involved in the process.


There are a few things that are important to remember when the dumpster actually arrives. If you have a specific area that you want the dumpster to be then you need to direct the garbage company where to put the dumpster. These areas need to be cleared out and cleaned to ensure the garbage company can safely remove your trash for you.

If your dumpster will be on concrete, be sure you put down plywood. The plywood will protect your concrete from getting scratched by the dumpster. When the dumpster is on your property, be sure that you mark that it is yours and that others should not dump in your dumpster. You do not want to be the one flipping the bill for the neighborhoods garbage 


There will be a few different sizes of dumpsters available, and it is actually important that you consider your options. Not only will the size of the dumpster determine how much you pay for your dumpster, there are other factors in the size you should rent. First you need to ensure that you have the space to have that particular dumpster. It would be a very big mistake to get a large dumpster only to find out that it blocks to much or your garage, and you can't pull in and out.
