You can use a commercial dumpster rental to move, renovate, build, or clean out your home. These are all instances where commercial dumpster rentals could be useful. If you plan your dumpster rental well, you will have a place to dispose of your building materials and trash while you are working on your project.
After you are done, someone comes to your house or workplace to take the dumpster away. You don’t have to worry about junk anymore.
It sounds easy to rent a commercial dumpster. The purpose of renting a dumpster is to make it easy for the user. The process may seem intuitive, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. You may have questions that need to be answered before you make arrangements for your dumpster delivery. These are questions you should direct to your dumpster rental company. You can also find information online about other issues. These are the top seven most common questions regarding commercial dumpster rentals. Here are their answers.
What’s the Difference Between a Roll-off and Commercial Dumpster?
You should know what you are getting if you want to rent a dumpster. Different rental companies may use the terms “commercial container” and “roll-off container” interchangeably. However, in other instances, a roll-off dumpster rental can be booked instead of a commercial dumpster.
A commercial dumpster is a covered dumpster that you might see outside of a restaurant or hotel. Businesses often rent these dumpsters for long-term waste service. The dumpsters are filled and the trash company who rented them comes by for a weekly pickup.
For more temporary projects such as cleanouts or renovations, roll-off dumpsters are the best. These dumpsters are placed on the truck’s bed and “roll off” when it is time for delivery. They are usually open containers without covers or tops. While you fill them, they will temporarily sit in your driveway. The delivery person returns to your site after you have completed the project and loads the container into the truck’s bed.
These terms can be interchanged from time to time so it is important that you ask for a photo before renting a dumpster. Roll-off dumpsters work well for large projects such as renovations, big cleaning jobs or construction. They are wider than standard commercial dumpsters and are usually slightly larger. Some companies may use the term “commercial” to refer to “big” or heavy-duty. However, it is important that you take a look at the dumpster before renting.
What Is the Process of Renting a Dumpster?
The process is usually quite straightforward. Call the dumpster rental company to arrange for a dumpster to be delivered at a specified time to your address. The delivery driver will bring your dumpster to you and drop it off according to the arrangement. The delivery person will then bring the dumpster to your location. The dumpster rental company’s employee will then return to your home at the time and pick up your trash.
What Size Dumpster Do I Need to Store My Trash?
This question is probably the most difficult to answer. You might be able to rent a commercial dumpster or rolloff that has a capacity of between 2 and 3 cubic yards. Or 40 to 50 cubic yards. The price of your rental will vary, as you might expect.
It can be difficult to determine the right size for you. You can get a rough idea of the contents of specific dumpsters by looking at reference guides provided by rental companies. If you make a wrong choice, you might end up with a dumpster which is either too small or too large, and therefore not enough for your junk and debris.
Look for a dumpster company that provides a one-size fits all or pay-as you-use service. You’ll have a simpler, less stressful rental experience if you only have one size option. Pay-as-you use means that you only pay for the space you actually use. These options are not available from all dumpster rental companies, but some do.
What Can I Put in a Roll-off Dumpster or Commercial Dumpster Rental for Waste Management?
Before you sign a rental contract, this is a question you need to ask your rental company. You will usually have some freedom regarding what you can put in your roll-off dumpster. Construction debris, such as drywall, tile, roofing shingles, and carpet, are all accepted. Furniture, electronic devices, appliances, as well as standard household junk and garbage are all acceptable.
Most dumpster rental companies will have a list of prohibited items that they can share with customers. Batteries, adhesives, oil, or other automotive fluids, printer paint, tires, printer ink and any other items that could be considered explosive or excessively flammable are all common exclusions.
How Do I Fill My Dumpster?
Filling your dumpster should be done in an even fashion. Another way to put it, you shouldn’t have your trash create hills or valleys inside the dumpster. It will be easier to load everything in the dumpster, and it will also make it safer for you to pick up and dispose of your trash. Don’t overfill your dumpster. You may have overfilled your dumpster if your garbage is piled up or bulging from the top. Dumpster rental companies may refuse to haul away containers that are full, or charge extra fees.
What Is the Cost of a Dumpster Rental?
This question can be answered differently by each customer. Size and location affects the pricing of the dumpster, as well as the length of your rental. Many dumpster rental companies charge extra fees and hidden charges to customers. Before you decide to rent a dumpster, read some customer reviews. You want a company that is upfront about its pricing structure.
Do Not Be Afraid to Ask Questions!
You should always ask questions about renting a commercial or roll-off dumpster. After you have chosen a dumpster rental company that you like, you can call them to ask any questions. Look through the company’s website to see if there are any questions that you can answer on their service pages or blog posts. You will feel happier about your rental experience the more you know. You don’t want to be surprised by hidden fees or policies that you didn’t know about.
