    Variable vs Fixed Pricing

    You might want to know why this is an important issue in dumpster rentals. Not every rental is like picking from a menu of services. There can be additional items that need to be added depending on what you’re going to be dumping. When selecting a fixed price, this makes it easier to estimate what your end-cost is going to be. With a flat rate term, you can have greater control over the amount you want to dispose of.

    With variable rates, it can be affected by added fees that you didn’t expect. This isn’t always a bad thing and it doesn’t mean the cost is automatically higher. This is where fixed rates include certain types of dumping materials such as asphalt roof shingles or landfill waste.

    Variables that Effect Price

    For variable price estimates you need to consider these elements too:

    • Landfill fees- $20-50 per ton
    • Permits- $40-75 per week (per dumpster)
    • Junk removal services- Pick up worth $100-500 (depending on load)
    • Remote locations for delivery- As determined by gas prices per mile
    • Extra days added- $5-10 per day
    • Restrictions- Up to $500 in fines for adding restricted items
    • Hazardous waste- Up to $500 in fines for non-landfill items

    Residential vs Commercial Options

    Residential Vs Commercial Dumpsters prices

    Ordering a dumpster isn’t just about tossing some trash or junk over a few days, there may be a commercial reason. Residential dumpsters are often for residents and homeowners who are doing short-term clean-up. There is a whole other side of dumpster rental that applies to commercial rentals. This is when a dumpster rental is needed for long term usage for months.

    Some homeowners aren’t just tossing out stuff from one room, since it might be an entire renovation. It can be for construction waste from a room being added-on or getting torn down. These dumpsters are also lockable and have front-loading doors. Besides, the contracts to rent these dumpsters are adjustable. This makes it ideal for a homeowner who needs a dumpster for a few months up to a year.

    Though, not everyone is making a drastic construction since most dumpster rentals are often short-term. This is why it’s easier to toss-out stuff in a couple of days depending on the size of the job. We do offer commercial rental options if you have a job planned that requires your dumpster for longer periods.

    As an alternative to renting a dumpster, you could always consider hiring a junk removal company who will come out and remove all unwanted items. We offer this service in Phoenix. There are pros and cons to each option, but if you’re willing to put in the work you’ll likely save money by renting a dumpster.

    Which size dumpster should I get?

    As you can expect, the larger the dumpster happens to be, the more stuff that goes inside. But choosing the best size is a question that isn’t so hard to answer. It depends on how you measure the amount of stuff you want to throw away. For most of us, we don’t look at mass in a matter of square feet; but a dumpster does. So to help you to find out which size is best, we tend to calculate average room sizes for reference.

    • Small bedroom
    • basement- 10 yards Large bedroom
    • garage- 20 yards Roof
    • window replacement- 30 yards Constructions
    • dismantling- 40 yards

    Of course, there is always going to be the issue of how you put stuff into the dumpster. Carefully stacked items just like in the video game Tetris will allow you to put more items inside the dumpster. If you have any doubts about what size you are looking to find, see more info here.

    How Do Dumpster Rentals Work?

    The first step is to determine what size dumpster you want and for how long. You can call us to ask questions if you’re unsure. We can help you if you have a ballpark estimate. Once the size is determined you need to estimate how many days you’ll need the container. You must also specify what kind of waste you’re throwing out. Does it relate to landfill items or is it roofing material? Asphalt shingles need to go to a different landfill.

    The next step is the date when you need it delivered and picked up. Your address and contact information are also taken down. After that, we’ll give you an estimate for the services. Since the job isn’t completed just yet, final aspects of the dumpster pick-up are not yet determined. This can include fees for overloading a dumpster past its weight capacity or items that are subject to dumping fines.

    Once the order is confirmed, a deposit is required to finalize the order. We can send you an invoice via e-mail or when the dumpster is dropped off. Final billing is completed on the day you order the dumpster service. You can pay through a credit card through our online service.

    Does it cost anything to remove the dumpster?

    The rental price is part of the delivery and pick-up, so there’s no cost added when the dumpster is picked up. As part of the rental agreement, you are liable for paying fees for items that aren’t allowed in the dumpster. If these are hidden inside the junk they will be collected separately at the landfill site and returned back to you. The fee is determined by the amount of unwanted waste and the number of miles traveled.

    All trucks are weighed at a weigh station and will impose further fees for more weight than the dumpster allows. These extra fees are stated in the rental contract. There can also be added rental costs due to needing the dumpster for longer. These are not late fees and are reasonable daily rental costs.
