Sometimes you just need to bring the dump to you. Demolition sites, home remodeling, or even just some spring cleaning can get to a point where it’s much more efficient and economical to have a dumpster delivered to you in Katy. Just like with any other service, however, not all dumpsters (or dumpster providers) are created equal. Luckily, there are some simple questions you can ask before you sign anything to make sure you’re getting the service you need!
Rental Rates per Day/Week/Month
The very first thing people notice and compare when they are shopping around for roll-offs in Katy is the cost. But this isn’t always the best determining factor for quality of service. Dumpster rental companies are just as much about customer options and customer service as they are about getting rid of junk. So, keep the cost in mind, but be sure to take a good look at what you’re getting for that rate. Oftentimes a cheaper rate can mean that you save up front but sacrifice things like customer service or unexpected fees in the end.
Size of Your Rental
When it comes to dumpsters, size is pretty darn important. Your construction site can’t have a unit so small that it needs to be picked up and emptied five times a day, but it also can’t be too large to fit on your project lot. Choosing the right size container for your project can save you time, money and project headaches.
What size of dumpster should you be renting? Determine how much space is suitable for the container. You don’t want to rent a dumpster that can’t be safely delivered and set on a stable surface at your site! Conversely, ordering one that is too small could mean you end up paying additional fees for unscheduled pickups, drop offs and multiple dumps.
Knowing the terms of your agreement might seem like a very minor detail, but it can be crucial to your schedule and budget. For example, one roll off company might offer dumpster rentals in Katy for ten days before a daily fee kicks in while another might allow only five days before the daily fee is applied. The cost per day varies from company to company as well so it’s important to get this information before completing the rental process.
Dumpster Removal and Emptying
Consider the length of the different phases of your project. If demolition is involved, there will likely be more waste to dispose of in the early stages of the job, and could require more dumpsters initially. Be sure to understand the terms of your agreement and give your company of choice enough lead time to schedule the pickup, swap or dump and return of your bin. Sometimes GSS can provide same day service. However, during busy months, it’s not uncommon for dumpster companies to have nothing immediately available or be booked for days in advance. Timing is key. We understand that things don’t always go as planned but if you know you are going to fill a dumpster by a certain day and need another one immediately, let us know up front so we can schedule the swap in advance. That may not be the case when you rent your dumpster. But the more notice you give us, the better are the chances that we can remove or exchange the dumpster on the requested day.
Overall Costs vs Convenience
Ultimately, waste disposal is a necessary part of pretty much any large project. And your overall costs are something you always need to keep in mind. Removal and disposal might require one trip to pick up the container and a trip to the closest Class IV landfill. However, larger projects or those that involve certain types of waste could require multiple dumpsters or require disposal at a different type of landfill, thus increasing the price of your rental. That’s why it is important for us to know what you will be disposing of before delivery.
If you’re needing waste removal or looking for dumpsters in Katy to rent, make sure that you ask all the right questions and find a dumpster service that’s perfect for your project’s needs. Contact us to know more details.
