Rental Basics

Dumpster Rental Price Tips

1. How long do you need the rental? When you rent a roll-off dumpster, usually, they give it to you for a week or two. Most small renovation projects should only take 1-2 weeks. If you have a larger project, such as building a section onto your house, you will have to work out the details when you call them up or visit their website.

2. Rent dumpsters locally. If you rent from your local roll-off service, then you will pay a lower price. This is because a lot of your local rental services are locally and family-owned. They don’t have the overhead expenses of a Waste Management or Allied Waste, which causes them almost always to be more expensive. Rent local and save money.


3. What do weekly dumpster rentals cost? This price depends on the area of the country you live in and can drastically change from state to state. The price also varies depending on the dumpster size as the price changes considerably from size to size. Check out the resources below to get a detailed understanding of dumpster sizes and pricing.

4. Compare Local Companies You should call at least 2-3 roll-off rental services to compare pricing, featured services, and check what dumpster sizes they have available.

Many companies don’t like to post their pricing on websites; they like the phone calls. Gather the pricing for all dumpster rentals you call and use it for ammunition. Most roll-off rental services will match or beat the competitor’s pricing.

Featured services include same-day pick up, discounts for cash, longer rental periods, and many more. Based on your needs, you can decide which services will best benefit you for your situation.

Not all companies hold in inventory the same size dumpsters as other companies. Most rental service companies will have common sizes; 10 yard, 20 yard, and 30-yard dumpsters. Some specialize in smaller dumpsters such as the smaller projects, such as the 3, 6, and 9-yard dumpster sizes. Some specialize in holding the bigger dumpsters like a 40 yard, usually used for construction projects.
