When you plan on renting a dumpster, you are going to have to figure out a few different things. First of all, how big is your project? This matters because it will affect what size dumpster you will need to rent. Remember, you cannot overfill your dumpster without having to pay tonnage overage prices or having to rent another dumpster to even out the debris. Think of it this way—are you planning on cleaning out your basement, or are you planning on a garage demolition and cleanout? Your local hauler will be able to help you make your final decision.
When you talk to a hauler, ask about any add on prices that could be attached to your final quote so you can understand the final price more fully. This can help you decide between dumpster rental companies.
You are also going to have to think about how long this project will take you so you can rent it for the proper amount of time. You do not need to even be home when it is delivered or picked up—just leave detailed instructions of where you want it placed, and you won’t have to stay at home waiting for any more delivery men.
What are some variables that can change the price of a dumpster rental?
With all different dumpster rental companies you will find different prices and different overage rates. While the differences may not be vast, they are still there. So in your search to find your ideal rental company, it is necessary to look at all of the prices that will make up for final price, as certain variables can greatly change from hauler to hauler. By looking at certain variables, you can be sure to find the best overall deal.
Most companies that you will be looking at will have a set price for drop-off and pick-up. With this set price, you will have a certain number of days that you will be able to use it for, and a certain number of tons that you are allowed to fill the dumpster with. However, some companies will charge you for delivery separately—so you should look out for that when trying to find your quoted price.
Another factor that may change the cost of your dumpster rental may be if you need the rental longer than the standard time limit, or longer than originally intended. On average, the longer you hold onto the dumpster, the higher the fee.
The second main factor that will most definitely alter the cost of your rental is weight. With so many different sized dumpsters, whether 10, 20, 30 or 40 yards, they each have a weight limit that you cannot ignore. If you do choose to fill the dumpster with more tonnage than permitted, extra charges will apply. With some companies, and depending on the material, you will be asked to unload a portion of the dumpster. With others, you will have the choice of paying a fee. Normally you pay a certain amount per ton that you are over. This varies from company to company and the landfill that is located nearest to you.
So when trying to find the best rate for your needs, keep these factors in mind. If you take both the weight limit and the time limit into consideration, you will not have to worry about extra charges, as you will be able to predict your quote from the start, as long as you confirm with your hauler that all the fees are included up front.
Why are Dumpsters Categorized by Yards?
Each different dumpster size holds a different amount of waste. This amount is measured in cubic yards. One cubic yard consists of a 3ft x 3ft cube, making sense as a yard is 3 feet. Our rental companies will offer 10, 20, 30 and 40 yard dumpsters. In a logical fashion, a 10 foot dumpster will hold 10 cubic yards, a 20 yard dumpster will hold 20 cubic yards, a 30 will hold 30 cubic yards, and a 40 will hold 40 cubic yards.
If you still don’t understand the process, or would like to speak with someone about these different sizes, feel free to call your chosen rental service. They would be happy to assist you in either figuring out which size you need, or even a conversion from yards into feet for your convenience.
