Dos and Don’ts When Renting a Dumpster

Dos and Don'ts When Renting a Dumpster
Learn what you should and shouldn’t do while you’re renting a dumpster.

Renting a dumpster is a fairly simple process, but there are many things you have to keep in mind before and after you rent your dumpster. Learn what you should and shouldn’t do while you’re renting a dumpster.

Do Call Ahead. Don’t Wait.

Give your dumpster rental service some notice ahead of time. You want to call at least one week before you want your rental. You don’t want to wait until the last minute to rent your dumpster. Rental companies have a finite number of resources, and if you wait too long, they might not have a rental for you on the day you want.

Do Prepare Ahead of Time. Don’t Avoid Planning.

Figure out what you want to put in it, and how much material you’re throwing away. These will help your rental company determine what dumpster is right for you. If you don’t plan ahead of time, you’ll have no idea what type of container to get. Getting the wrong size of container can cost you extra money.

Do Follow Company Rules. Don’t Throw Away Prohibited Items.

If you don’t follow company rules, you’ll have to pay a fee for throwing away any items that are prohibited. Items thrown away improperly also do significant damage to the environment. To preserve the planet, and your wallet, it’s better to follow company rules.

Do Load the Dumpster to the Right Height. Don’t Overload It.

As long as you load your dumpster to the right height, it can be safely secured when it’s being taken away from your house. Overloading it can cause the dumpster to exceed its weight limit, which can cost you more money. Items can also fall into the streets since the container can’t be properly secured.

Do Contact Several Companies Before Choosing One. Don’t Blindly Pick the First One.

Dumpster rental companies offer varying prices, which are determined by provider and location. That’s why you should do your research on many different companies before picking one. Going with the first one you find isn’t the best choice because you want to compare them with other companies to know if you’re getting the best deal.

Do Consider Smaller Companies. Don’t Assume Only Large Companies are Worth Contacting.

Smaller, more local companies tend to offer lower prices than larger ones, and they usually offer more personable services. When you support smaller companies, you help your community, so do your part by contacting your local dumpster rental company.
