Redoing a section of your house by yourself is a great way to save money on contractor costs while also granting you serious bragging rights to future guests. But the job will definitely require you to retain roll off services to do away with all the waste that any renovation is bound to produce. The right sized dumpster parked in front of your house means you will not have to worry about having it hauled away until the job is completely finished. Going to small or working with a firm that is expensive means you will spend an inordinate amount of your funds on having garbage hauled away when it could be better spent on the renovation itself.
The best way to find a good company to rent a trash dumpster from is to go online and start comparing reviews. Websites like Yelp and Angie’s List are usually good for gleaning the average level of customer satisfaction, though you must be cautious not to take in experiences that serve as subtle promotions. One way to sidestep this deception is by asking any friends who have recently completed a renovation what companies they were most satisfied with. Word of mouth is still one of the most reliable forms of endorsement, especially if it is coming from a trusted acquaintance. Speaking directly with firms will also give you a sense of transparency and friendliness.
Set a firm budget for your dumpster rental to avoid paying too much for a service that is generally inexpensive. The longer you have a container, the more likely a business will be willing to give you a lower daily rate. Most firms are open to negotiation, so don’t be afraid to explain your budget in order to figure out any alternatives to their listed prices and policies. Many factors will determine the average container rates around your area, including size, landfill proximity, and how often it will need to be transported and emptied during the course of your renovation.
Always be mindful of the weight limits specified for each size. Overloading a container can cause serious damage not only to the unit itself, but to whatever vehicle will be transporting it back and forth. Causing considerable damage will cost you considerable fees with the rental agency, so don’t get arrogant about throwing whatever heavy appliance you want into the dumpster. Respecting your rental contract will help you steer clear of having to pay additional expenses.
