5 Tips for Finding the Best Dumpster Rental Company

Tips on Renting DumpstersAre you getting ready to renovate your home or business? Replace a roof? Do you have a large outdoor project where you will be getting rid of trees, bushes or play equipment? Are you moving and just have a lot of junk? Then a dumpster rental might be just what you need to help you get rid of all your unwanted waste. This article deals with how to find the best dumpster rental company in your area.

Know Your Needs

Before you start shopping around for a dumpster rental company, make sure you know what your needs are and what you are looking for. Dumpster rentals are big rectangular receptacles with an open top that are delivered by the rental company wherever you need them. Once you are done with the dumpster or you have filled it up, you call the rental company, and they come and pick it up. Dumpster rentals are for scrap material and rubbish, not food waste, and they can come in varying sizes. You don’t want to pay for more than you need, but at the same time, it would be awful to run out of room. Try to make a best guess on the size (in cubic yards) you might need and make sure that no food waste will be put inside.

Look at Online Reviews

Most places around the country have a few (or many) options to choose from when selecting a dumpster rental company. It can be helpful to search out some online reviews in order to get a feel for which company offers the best customer service, prices, etc. You can find reviews on yelp, Better Business Bureau, Angie’s list, or on individual companies’ websites.

Talk to Neighbors and Friends

Sometimes the best place to find information is from the people who live around you. Ask your friends and neighbors if they have ever used a dumpster rental company, who they used, and what their experience was like. This is especially helpful in smaller areas where there may not be as many online reviews.

Compare Costs

If you are on a tight budget, it would be wise to shop around and compare prices on what you need. Most of the time this can be done on the Internet using company websites, but you may also need to pick up the phone and do a little calling around. Taking the time to compare prices at the beginning could save you a lot of money in the long run.

Shop Local

Make sure you check out some of your local dumpster rental companies before heading for a national company. Local shops may be cheaper because they don’t have the added cost of gas and travel and might be able to drop off and pick up more quickly, too. Don’t automatically assume that bigger is better when it comes to dumpster rental companies. Give the little guy the benefit of the doubt.
