trash container

There are times when you end up on a project where a dumpster might be necessary. It could be a commercial development, home remodeling job, party, or special event. Whichever the reason, when you have something going on that will accumulate a whole lot of trash to get rid of, a dumpster rental service is worth considering. But which one is best?

The right dumpster rental company will be heavily dependent on your particular project or event. Here are some general things to consider when looking for the right service to suit your needs:

What kind of selection do they have?

It is possible you will need just a small dumpster/container for a quick remodeling project, but you also might need a larger one for something like re-shingling your entire roof. But if you have multiple buildings going up at the same time, you will need several dumpsters of varying sizes. A good dumpster rental service will be able to accommodate a large selection of sizes, so there will be no doubt that they will have the size of container you will need.

Are their rates affordable?

In today’s economy, budgets are obviously a big issue with most people. So when you want to rent a dumpster (or multiple dumpsters) for a project, you want to make sure that the service is at the very least competitively priced against the local competition. You may not want to go with the absolute cheapest – make sure they meet the other criteria as well. But at least make sure you are not paying a great deal more than other comparable services in the area.

Are they well respected in the area?

This is where the rubber really meets the road; what kind of reputation does the service have within the local community. For this, you will want to know a few things about them, such as how long they’ve been in business, whether or not they are fully licensed, bonded and insured, and what other customers are saying about them.

This will require some due diligence on your part. Read the history of the company, and especially read their online reviews. Look for specific areas of strength and weakness from multiple reviewers. And of course, call around to others you know to find out if they can make any positive recommendations.

Do they offer flexible scheduling?

Scheduling flexibility is quite important to most people when it comes to renting a dumpster in Toronto. The reason being that you often do not know exactly what day you can start the project, and because of weather and logistics, it is very difficult to predict when the job will be done. This is why you will want a dumpster rental company that can deliver the container on short notice and pick it up on short notice as well, like a Canadian company This way, you only pay for the time you use it, without wasted days waiting for it to be picked up.
