If you are doing your first-ever home remodel, then you may have some questions about renting a dumpster.

Renting dumpsters is not a complicated process. Companies providing dumpster rentals have streamlined the renting process, allowing for fast, professional, and reliable service.

In this article, we are going to look at the step-by-step process of renting a dumpster.

Let us dive into the details.

Find a reliable dumpster rental company

The need for proper waste management has led to the emergence of a myriad of dumpster companies around the country. You could ask your friends and family for referrals. If that is not an option, online reviews will work best. Shortlist a few companies, call them up and inquire about their services. You’ll get a good idea of their customer service over the phone.

Pick a dumpster size

Once you have chosen a dumpster company that is a good fit for you, it is time to pick a dumpster size.

Dumpsters come in various sizes. The most common ones are the 10 to 40-yard dumpsters. It all depends on your type of project. For instance, small home renovations require the 10 or 20-yard dumpster. Major construction projects where heavy materials are being thrown away might require you to rent a 40-yard dumpster.

If you are still unsure, talk to the company and tell them what you will be tossing out. The last thing you want is to overload a dumpster and suffer additional charges or pick an over-sized one, spending more money.

Get a quote

Waste management companies have varying prices so it is important to get a quote to see what exactly are the charges.

The pricing of dumpsters has a lot of variables. For instance, the final quote may be affected by the type and amount of debris, administrative fees, proximity of your site to the service provider, taxes, franchise fees, and many more.

When getting a quote it is also best to consider where a company has an all-inclusive price quote or it is a variable price model.

Ask questions

As a first-timer, I am sure you might have a bevy of questions about the rental procedure, how to use the dumpsters properly, and the drop and pick-up schedules. Additionally, you might be curious about the laws governing the placement of dumpsters in your city as well as permits you may need for placing a dumpster on public property.

Being professionals in the field, the company should be able to answer these and more questions to your satisfaction.

Place an order

Once you’re ready to move forward, it’s time to place your order. The company will ask you to pick a delivery date where the company can drop off the dumpster. You need to already have a designated and safe spot where the dumpster will be placed.

When you’re done with the rental, call the company to schedule a pickup. It’s as simple as that.
