What to Know Before You Rent a Roll-Off Container

A great way to get rid of the trash without having to make several trips to the dump is to rent a roll-off container. However, you may not be clear on exactly whether or not you need one. You also might not know how to go about the renting process. It’s not that complicated, but you need to know the facts before you rent one. There are many competing services that may not be right for your project and it’s important to know some of the differences. You should also be prepared just in case you need one for an emergency situation, such as a natural disaster. You may need to rent a roll-off container that is just right for your industry. Let’s take a look at some of the things you need to know before you rent a roll-off container.

Know the Size You Want

When you go to rent a roll-off container it can be hard to pick a size that best fits you. This is determined by what reasons you need a roll-off container. Do you need it for some deep spring cleaning or are you building a home? This matters as the more trash you find the bigger a container you may need. Some businesses do charge every time you dump the container and the prices can rack up. Ordering a larger container when you are unsure can be the best choice for you. If you are working in a specific field with heavy equipment this also plays a factor. A roll-off container can only carry so much capacity and is rated for up to a specific amount of weight. You do not want to damage a roll-off container as that will likely incur a fee towards your bill. Also, you need to make sure you have space for the actual container. You need to know if you can park it on the street or not.

Know How Long You Need to Rent a Roll-Off Container

How long is your project going to last? Do you have help or are you going this alone with your family? This is important to consider as many businesses charge by the week to rent a roll-off container. Make sure you have the help you need when you decide to invest in a roll-off container with your project. However, you will save time as you won’t have to make multiple trips to the dump every day when you are done. This is especially important if you are ordering after an emergency situation happens. You do not want to under-estimate how long a cleanup process will take. It can take weeks to clean up from a natural disaster such as a tornado. You will want to find a company that provides 24/7 emergency services when you need it most. 

Know Your Price

Variable rates and flat rates also come into play when you rent a roll-off container. Even for a simple project, it can be more effective to rent a dumpster over a junk removal crew during a longer period. You need to find the right size and lock down a flat rate for its use. Your area will also have different pricing based on the companies that surround you. Again, prices during a disaster should be hammered out before you receive the dumpster. Make sure to get all the prices and what services are included in writing.
