Renting a dumpster to help dispose of the waste accumulating from your cleaning or construction job is fairly easy once you get familiar with roll off service, but it can initially be a bit of a hassle that has the potential to cost you much more money than initially expected.
This is a large part of the reason why so many people depend on independent contractors to take care of the situation for them, particularly since they generally have favorite companies that they work with on every gig that they land which may offer better rates due to the long working relationship. However don’t expect those better rates to pass off to you, since the contractor needs to make a profit off of the arrangement as well.
However there are several ways that you can save money on your dumpster rental in Orlando without bending over backwards in the process. Your construction contractor gets a good rate with the dumpster rental for a reason, and not just because they have a long working relationship with the rental agency. They know what to look for when they choose a company, and if you keep your eyes open you will as well.
One of the first things that you will notice when choosing between companies offering dumpster rentals is that there are generally two types of fee scales: there are flat fee dumpster agencies and others that offer a complex menu of services. Flat fee rental services are increasingly uncommon, since most companies operate under a billing system that incorporates the weight/volume of your load, where you are located, and how long you are renting the dumpster for.
Those that remain tend to hide other fees, such as removal fees and other services charges that are not incorporated in the original price quote. On the other hand, some local companies or newly formed rental agencies may simply offer a flat rate as a way to attract new customers, so don’t be shy to investigate. Ask them about other fees included in the arrangement before you decide to buy.
Next make sure to time your dumpster rentals just right. Never have your dumpster delivered early, particularly since you are generally paying by the length of time you hold onto the dumpster. Make sure that your demolition is finished before you have the dumpster delivered, and try to keep the amount of time it is parked out front of your house to a minimum.
At the same time, make sure not to overestimate how fast you can complete the job. If you keep the bin longer than negotiated you will probably end up paying more than you thought you were going to save by rushing the job.
By combining finding the right roll off container service and keeping your timing within a safe margin you will be surprised to find out exactly how much money you can save on your waste removal. Do not be surprised to pay only a couple hundred dollars to remove a mountain of debris from your property.
