Rent a dumpster to get rid of that junk and debris

Posted by rentthisdumpster on January 23rd, 2015

Are you remodeling your home or are planning for spring cleaning? Then you must look at renting a dumpster. All you need to do is to call a dumpster rental company, tell them what you are looking for e.g. purpose and container space required and you are good to go.

Some companies may not be able to drop it off at your house in which case you need to secure a permit to bring it to your place.

What to do know about dumpsters?

Dumpsters come in two types – roll-off and front-loading. A roll-off dumpster is an open-topped one that is rolled off in your property from a truck. Front-loading, on the other hand, comes with a lid and is ideal for daily garbage disposal needs.

Furthermore, roll-off dumpsters come in varied capacities like 10,20,30, and 40 yard containers.

Why rent a dumpster?

  • Flexibility – You have the liberty to load your garbage at your own free will and at your leisure.

  • Low cost – Renting a dumpster incurs lesser cost than hiring a debris disposal company

  • Effective garbage disposal – Dumpsters are easy and effective way of disposing debris and unwanted articles as opposed to building a nasty pile of those articles in the corner of the room

What to consider when renting a dumpster?

There are couple of important points to consider when looking out for the ideal dumpster that suits your needs:

  • Evaluate your needs: Since roll-off dumpsters come in varied sizes and capacities, choose the one that is suitable for your requirement; you don’t want to spend more than required.

  • Location: You can choose a dumpster rental company in your vicinity which makes the transportation costs minimal and there are lesser chances of the company leaving the dumpster along the road and then you having to secure a permit to pick it up. So, if you are staying in Halifax or Taunton, seek a dumpster in Halifax and Taunton.

  • Reliability: Choose a rental company that has a proven track record of providing quality services. Do your research and seek online feedback as well as consult friends to make the right choice.

  • Clear communication: Establish clear communication on the duration and cost of services. Usually, you would find all this information documented, if you don’t, ask for a bill. In case you are planning to keep the Dumpster longer than what agreed upon initially, inform the rental company; you may have to pay extra for the extra duration.

  • Weight restrictions: Know the permitted weight and do not load more debris than advised. The rental company has a right to charge you extra for any extra ounce of debris.

  • Know what not to discard in the dumpster: Some of the things that must not be discarded in the dumpster are live batteries, medical wastes, toxic and inflammable items like gas, propane containing items, and liquids that may leak into the dumpster.
