To find a cheap dumpster rental, first determine the size of dumpster required to fit your project needs. Decide beforehand how long you need to rent the dumpster and if there are specific days during the week that you need it. Find and compare the rates of different companies based on that information and the policies of each for pricing what is hauled away.
A 10-yard dumpster is best for a small project, while a larger project requires at least a 30-yard dumpster. When you apply to rent a dumpster, you must enter a drop-off date and a collection date. Ask each company if they have discounted rates for specific rental days during the week. Many dumpster rental companies have a predetermined weight allowed for collection and disposal. Surcharges usually apply for excess weight, with many companies charging a flat fee per ton.
Find local companies online or through advertisements and business pages. Contact as many companies as possible in your area to make the best decision for your budget. Keep in mind that businesses that exclusively handle dumpster rentals are likely more affordable than rentals from retail stores that outsource rentals. It is better to deal directly with the rental company to obtain the best pricing.
