Planning Ahead: Dumpster Rentals for Extended Use


When looking for a dumpster rental service, one of the largest factors you’re going to run into is the time frame of which you will need it. There are a few factors that play into this decision, and if you are working with the right company they will be more than happy to walk  you through the process. 


Common Time Frames for Dumpster Rental

Though each company sets their standards for themselves, there are some commonalities that you will find in your area. Most reputable dumpster rentals allow a time frame of five to seven days, though for your normal renovating needs the average is three and a half. There are daily rates with most rental services after your time frame has expired. Be as transparent about your project as possible with your rental service. They can tell by what materials and the size of the project what size and timeframe will work best for your needs.


Amount of Waste VS Size of Dumpster

Depending on how fast you plan on getting rid of the waste, a larger sized dumpster might in fact save you money. You should never attempt to get a smaller dumpster due to the cost and then cram it full. Each size dumpster has a weight limit as well as a “Line to Fill” marker. Overloading a dumpster can cause you a lot more money and hassle in the long run then going with one size up. If you are ever concerned you might be going over your limit, reach out to your rental service and see what your options are. Most of the time, they will work with you the best they can. 


Your Best Friend Is Your Renter

This day and age, there is almost a set suspicion over who you’re attempting to do business with. Whether it’s a Landscaper, a Carpenter, or your Dumpster Rental service, you walk in with a bit of a squint and keep looking for the downsides. The one thing to keep in mind with dumpster rentals is – most of their advertising is word of mouth. A respected rental service will always do better than one who tries to cut corners. Customer service is absolutely the number one consideration when it comes to renting. When choosing a renter, see how they respond right off the bat. Are they respectful of your time? Do they cut you off mid sentence? Do they care enough to walk you through the process step by step? It’s not your job to know the in’s and out’s of a dumpster, it’s theirs. 


Renting a dumpster can seem daunting to the average homeowner, but if you’re working with the right company it’s well worth the investment. You save yourself time, money, and all those “What if’s” that come along with proper waste disposal.
