Your Junk Removal Guide to Roll Off Dumpster Rental Costs and Sizes
Updated: Sep 27, 2021
Renting a dumpster is a surefire way to accelerate the timetable on your next renovation or cleanup project. But since most people don’t deal with garbage bin rental services on a regular basis, it comes as no surprise that many homeowners aren’t sure how much dumpsters will cost to rent, what dumpster size they need, or what kind of service they can expect.
This guide will help you find the information you need to make an informed decision when renting a dumpster. If you have ever asked “how much does it cost to rent a dumpster?” or “what size dumpster do I need?” read on to learn all you need to know about dumpster prices and sizes.
Dumpster Rental Companies
Dumpsters are the kind of thing that are so widely used that most people take them for granted, but you can source a dumpster rental from two fundamentally different kinds of dumpster companies.
A dumpster broker is a third party that sources dumpster rentals for clients, but the problem with brokers is that they generally lack transparency, offer little in the way of customer service and pass on additional costs to customers. In some cases, brokers even pose as suppliers, and they simply outsource any dumpster rental that comes their way while taking a cut in the process.
To get the best balance of affordability and customer service, your best bet for a temporary dumpster rental is to go with a locally-owned dumpster supplier. A local dumpster rental service will be in the best position to handle delivery, pickup and any questions you might have about the process because they have local roots, so they know the area and understand local regulations.
Commercial dumpster companies are another option, but their offerings are rarely suited to individual needs. Because their business model focuses on commercial clients, the final cost of renting tends to be far higher because of the additional fees that come with an ongoing service.
Factors that Affect Dumpster Rental Prices
The two main factors that determine the average cost to rent a roll off dumpster are the size of the bin and the time period of the rental, but they aren’t the only charges.
Dumpster rental services also charge a waste disposal fee, which can vary depending on the type of debris and weight limit of the bin. For example, if you have mattresses and/or box springs to dispose of, the local dump could charge additional fees.
