Choosing a dumpster company can be overwhelming. How can you sort through the best options?

We break down things to look for when choosing a dumpster company for your next project.

Pricing

The first thing to consider when choosing a dumpster rental company is pricing. Do they offer flat rate pricing? Are they upfront about extra fees that you may be charged for including; tonnage, extra rental days, and service area. The more information you’re given upfront the better.

Customer Service

Next is customer service. How quickly were they able to answer your phone call? When you got a hold of someone were they knowledgeable and friendly? Did they give you all the answers you needed or was it like pulling teeth?

These are a few things to keep in mind when making your decision. The phone call should provide you with all the information you need in a concise and friendly manner.

Sizing Options

Variety is key. Each project has a recommended dumpster size and figuring that out can be tricky.

When choosing a dumpster rental company, having multiple sizes to choose from is ideal. Customer service representatives should help you decide on the correct size.

Do They Make it Easy on you?

Booking a dumpster, especially for the first time can be confusing. Make sure the company you choose makes it easy on you. They should provide you with all the ordering information needed including guiding you through the best location for the dumpster to be placed, when it will arrive, when it will be picked up, when and how you’ll be billed and what is and is not allowed in the dumpster.
