How To Afford A Dumpster For Your Project

Posted on: 9 October 2017

Renting a dumpster for a major project can be a quick and easy way to get rid of debris. It can save you hours of transferring large amounts of trash to and from the landfill multiple times a day. It is also ideal for disposing of heavy items or those that are too large or bulky to remove yourself. One thing to remember is renting a dumpster will cost more than removing the debris yourself. The best way to save is to only rent it for one day. Thankfully, there are some additional ways you can save on the cost of a dumpster rental. Here are some tips to consider:

Choose the Smallest Dumpster for Your Needs

The smaller the dumpster, the less it will cost. Smaller dumpsters are rented fairly often for one-day projects and will be the most cost-effective. Many dumpster rental companies will prefer a quick drop off and pick up of the smaller dumpsters as the inventory is smaller. They will make more money in the long run by renting the smaller dumpster for fewer days at a time, which is great for your bottom line.

Rent a Dumpster in the Middle of the Week

Another great savings tip is to rent a dumpster in the middle of the week if possible. Many people wait until the weekend to do major projects that require a dumpster. Rental companies know this and will often increase the cost to rent the dumpsters on these days. If you rent during the week instead, you will not only pay less, but you will also be helping the rental company, as they can get the dumpster back into circulation for the weekend.

Negotiate the Price

In many cases, dumpster rental companies will be willing to negotiate the costs with you. You can leverage different factors in order to get the price down. For instance, if you live near the landfill or if your project is taking place near a transfer station, you can use that information as leverage to get the costs down. This is a great situation for both you and the rental company because that means they do not have to utilize as much fuel for your job.

Renting a dumpster is going to be an expense, but it does not have to be extraordinary. By using these tips and a bit of negotiation, you will be able to dispose of your debris affordably and quickly. Contact a company like Mountain Waste & Recycling for more information and assistance.
