If you’re a dumpster renting newbie, you might feel overwhelmed by the process. But relax, because renting a dumpster is a lot easier than it sounds.
The biggest decision you will need to make when dumpster renting is choosing the size of the container. Take a look at your project. Are you cleaning out your home of some old and disposable items? How large are the items? What items can be thrown into the dumpster?
Dumpster renting companies suggest you call ahead and discuss your project with a representative from the company. They are familiar with every type of project out there and will be able to tell you what sized dumpster you will need based on your description. But don’t call them and list things off the top of your head. Go through the area and make a list of all the things you would like to get rid of or throw away and come to a realistic determination of just how much stuff will need to go into a dumpster.
Dumpster rental companies also suggest that whatever size container you decide on, it is always better to go larger. You never know if there will be extra items or material that won’t fit as uniformly as it should.
Making sure you have selected the correct sized dumpster could end up saving you a lot of money in the long run. Having to have the filled dumpster taken away and a new one, especially one that won’t be filled up very much, is an added expense you probably don’t need
