Which Do I Do: Rent A Dumpster Or Hire A Junk Removal Service?

Look at the differences between a junk removal service and a dumpster rental to see which is ideal for your project.

A junk removal service or dumpster rental can help with many different projects such as removing furniture, making house renovations, or starting a construction project. But when will a junk removal service be better for you than a dumpster, and when will it be the other way around? Look at the differences between a junk removal service and a dumpster rental to see which is ideal for your project.

Dumpster Rental

Renting a dumpster is a better idea if you plan to clean out all of your junk by yourself. What you do is you call a dumpster rental company and select what size of container you need. Then it will be delivered to your house so you can fill it up with all of the trash and debris you want to remove from your home. After you’ve cleared out all of the junk you want, the dumpster rental company who brought you the dumpster will haul it away.

Sometimes, having it delivered isn’t as straightforward. You might need a permit if your dumpster is dropped off somewhere such as the side of a city street. Your dumpster rental company can tell you if a permit is necessary.

Roll-off dumpsters are offered in varying sizes. The more common sizes are 10, 20, 30, and 40-yard containers. “Yards” means “cubic yards” when renting one, so keep that in mind. As a point of reference, 10-yard dumpsters are better if you’re clearing our something like a shed, while 40-yard bins are better for large construction projects.

Junk Removal Services

If you don’t think you can handle hauling all of the trash on your own, a junk removal service is a better fit for you. Just like renting a dumpster, you call your junk removal company and schedule a time for them to come clean your area. Then all you have to do is make your payment and have the junk removal team handle your cleaning for you. The cost of the service will depend on how much trash you have to remove.

The workers are great at removing trash, no matter how heavy or bulky it may be, and they take precautions not to damage your property in the cleaning process. Most junk removal companies also recycle parts of each load or donate items that have only been gently used to different charitable organizations and offer you a tax-deductible receipt for it.
