Junk Removal vs. Dumpster Rental
Considering what route to go for your junk removal? Wondering what is the difference between renting a dumpster and hiring a removal service?
Each option has its pros and cons, so it’s important to consider what service is right for you.
Consider these points:
If you find yourself willing and able to clear out the junk yourself, renting a dumpster is a good option. They range from 10 – 40 yards in size and can be rented for extended periods of time. This is helpful for the long-haul projects, where you are able to predict a large amount of junk that will pile up on your property. If you go this route, however, there are some factors to consider:
Do you need a permit to park it?
- Zoning laws do not allow you to just plop a dumpster anywhere. In some areas, you might need to secure a permit before renting a dumpster.
Do you have enough space to park it without causing damage?
- The weight of a fully loaded dumpster (upwards of a few tons!) can cause irreparable damage to sidewalks, pavements, yards, and driveways.
Are there weight and time restrictions you have to keep up with?
- All rental companies enforce weight restrictions and impose limitations that you need to fully understand in order for it to be the most useful. Experienced folks in demolition may have the formula figured out. But most of us don’t.
- There is a time limit on rentals and will incur additional fees after a certain amount of time. Make sure you understand the potentials for extra costs up front.
