Things to Look for When Renting a Dumpster in Indianapolis

If you are in need of a renting a dumpster, there are several factors to consider before spending the time and money. A smooth rental with the tips factored in below will ensure your project goes efficiently from start to finish.

Renting a Dumpster

  1. Different fees are assessed with every rental in Indianapolis – Communicate!

To avoid any hidden costs, be sure to rent a dumpster that offers a flat rate fee. Because no one dumpster job is the same, a flat rate fee is the way to go.

What many people neglect to realize, however, is that there can be potential surprise fees if standards and limitations aren’t factored into the job. For example, if you have several heavy items that are relatively small in size, you might want to purchase a smaller dumpster. When your substance if weighed, however, you find out that each dumpster size has different weight limits due to safety hazards. For instance, a 10 yard dumpster rental has a 2 ton weight limit, while each additional ton you pile on top will cost you an extra $50.

To avoid this, speak with a sales representative about your specific situation with as much detail and anticipated outcomes as you can. He or she is highly trained and experienced in understanding what will best suit your individual situation.


  1. Size – What’s your job?

What do you need? 10 cubic yards? 40? Often, people fear that they will either get a dumpster that is too big and have to pay more than they needed, or they will get too small of a dumpster, and will consequently have to pay for an additional dumpster. Every situation requires a different size. Look for a company that offers a variety of sizes. Before renting your dumpster, carefully evaluate the amount of debris you have prior to picking the size.


  1. Placement – Have the right space?

Dumpsters improperly placed could cost you much inconvenience and money out of your wallet. Dumpsters are large and could contain dangerous material to traffic, which could result in a violation of city codes.

With that being said, be sure you have space on your property before renting the dumpster. Many residential rentals will lay a protective tarp over their driveway and keep the dumpster there.


  1. Time – How long will it take?

Just like the various sizes, different projects require a different rental time. Dumpster drop-off and dumpster pick-up should be scheduled with careful planning. If you are doing a simple bathroom renovation, for example, you may only need your dumpster early in the morning and picked up at night that same day. If you are tackling a heavy and larger project, however, you may need your dumpster much longer. The best times to rent are in the morning.


  1. Safety – Is it dangerous?

There are different regulations depending on each company, but if you are planning on choosing an economically friendly and clean company, there are several hazardous wastes that cannot be accepted. Some of these include chemicals, solvents, explosives, infectious, toxics and paints. They are simply unsafe and are not designed to be tossed in a dumpster.
