5 Things To Consider Before Making A Dumpster Rental

If you keep the following 5 things in mind, your next dumpster rental will be less troublesome.

When renting a dumpster, it’s important for you to make sure the process goes smoothly. Delivery and pickup should be timely and simple. You shouldn’t have unintended costs, and you want to avoid stumbling blocks reaching your home. If you already know the factors to be considered whenever you rent a dumpster, the whole ordeal will be easier for all parties involved. If you keep the following 5 things in mind, your next dumpster rental will be less troublesome.

Where Will You Put Your Dumpster?

When choosing a spot for your dumpster, make sure there aren’t any obstructions that would stop a safe delivery and pick up. If you want to be safe, having a minimum of 22 feet of free space above the dumpster should ensure the dumpster can be dropped off and retrieved safely,

 

Remember to leave enough space to access t\your home, as well as all of the debris you want to place in the dumpster. If you don’t do this, it will be tougher to get rid of the trash your dumpster rental is supposed to hold. It’s also important to allow the driver to make a three-point turn to deliver and pick up your dumpster rental.

What If You Want Your Dumpster In The Street?

Get in touch with your city or local government if you want your dumpster on your street to see if you need a permit to have it on that street or in front of your house. You will also need to figure out how long you’re allowed to have your dumpster rental on the street.

What Size Of Dumpster Should I Use?

The size of your dumpster rental is the most important consideration to make. You won’t want over-weight problems when your dumpster service provider is dumping all of your trash. Think about the smallest size of dumpster you think you would need, then consider going one size up from that minimum to play things safely.

A big part of deciding the size of your dumpster is the amount of debris you have. Some materials like carpet and scrap wood can take up a lot of space, while cement, bricks, and concrete, among other things can add weight at a rapid rate. Once your dumpster service provider knows what you plan to throw away, they can help you figure out the appropriate size for your dumpster rental.

What Should You Go Over When Getting Your Estimate?

You’ll always want to call to get an accurate estimate for your dumpster rental. The key points to discuss when you contact your dumpster service provider are the rental time, the weight that is included in the contracted price, items that aren’t allowed in the dumpster, and what the best size of the container you should use for throwing away your debris.

How Efficient Is Your Dumpster Service Provider?

You will need to know how long it will take for the dumpster to be picked up once you’ve requested a pickup. You won’t want a dumpster sitting in your yard for too long. This is especially true if you have city and local ordinances you need to respect.
