2.What are your prices and why do they vary?
We strive to provide the best overall value to each and every customer by focusing on customer satisfaction while providing the lowest possible price. Our dumpster rental prices are based on several factors such as delivery cost, haul cost and disposal cost. Delivery costs do differ based on the distance that travel to and from your location to our transfer station or a landfill. Disposal costs also vary by city as different cities impose different taxes and fees.
3.Can you deliver if we are not there?
We do not require you to be present during delivery. We do require detailed placement instructions and a contact telephone number in case we need to reach you. On the delivery day, please ensure that there are no vehicles or other obstacles blocking our access to the property or the placement location
4.How much notice do you need to deliver a dumpster?
Typically 1 to 2 days will give us time to schedule and route a delivery. However there are times when we get backed up for unforseen reasons like weather conditions, influx of deliveries/pickups or truck issues etc. We also know sometimes you might need a dumpster within this time, give us a call and we might be able to help you out.
5.What size should I order
To minimize your expenses, you want to order the smallest dumpster you can fit all of your debris in. Think of every 2 cubic yards as one standard pick-up truck load. If you are a roofer and are disposing of shingles then think of every cubic yard as enough capacity to hold 2 squares of roofing shingles. We realize that selecting the right sized container may be difficult especially if this is your first time using such a service. Please contact one of our trusted Customer Service professions at 757-722.2534 for assistance.
6.How do I estimate roofing jobs
As a rule, roofs are figured in 100 sq. ft. units called "squares". For a single layer of shingles, you can figure that 4 squares will fit into a 1 cubic yard space.
80 squares (8,000 sq.ft.)= 20 Cubic Yard Dumpster
120 squares (12,000 sq.ft.)= 30 Cubic Yard Dumpster
160 squares (16,000 sq.ft.)= 40 Cubic Yard Dumpster
