Information to Help get an Accurate Price Quote
It is worthwhile to spend some time to gather the information that Top Dog Dumpster Rental in San Antonio will need from you so they can provide you with the right price quote. At least, you will need to provide us some basic information so we can provide you with the right price quote.
The very first thing any dumpster rental company in San Antonio would want to know from you is the kind of waste material and how much of it you’re planning to put in their dumpster. This helps us provide you with the right recommendation on the best dumpster size most appropriate for your job. In general, there are four rental dumpster sizes available, and these are 10, 20, 30, and 40 yards.
If you’re not certain about which size of dumpster would fit for your project, it is highly recommended that you pick a larger dumpster size tahn you’re considering. So in the end you’ll be saved from having to rent two dumpsters, or get an extra dump and return, just in case the first one isn’t big enough.
Informing us about the type of waste material you’re planning to dispose will help us make sure you’re aware of the kind of materials which we do not allow to be placed in the dumpster.
After choosing the dumpster size you need, you should tell our dumpster rental company the exact time when you want the dumpster to be delivered for your project as well as the number of days you will use the dumpster. We will then check their inventory in order to verify that the dumpster size you need would be available on the dates you need it.
Because of the limited inventory of dumpsters it would be wise to have all this information ready and give us a call at least a week in advance so you can get the price quotes and the schedule for your dumpster delivery.
Asking Dumpster Rental Companies for Price Quotes
Once you already have the needed information to get your free price quote from Top Dog Dumpster Rental then you should give us a call at 210-360-1606. If you need help, we are here to guide you along the way.
There are several different ways a dumpster rental price can be quoted. Some dumpster companies give price quotes based on the canister size, but there are also others who give price quotes based on the canister size but with a specific weight limit. Depending on your needs, you should ask if we will be imposing any weight limit on our price quote.
In addition, when the roll off container is taken by the dumpster rental company to the landfill you will be billed for landfill charges.
Penalties may also be imposed if you keep the dumpster longer than the period you have scheduled. You should ask what the extra cost is for keeping the dumpster longer than arranged.
Here at Top Dog Dumpster Rental in San Antonio, we do our best not to charge you with additional fees. We try to be transparent and help you understand which fees will be charged depending on how you use the dumpster.
Arrival Time – Things to Do When the Dumpster Arrives
The next thing you need to do is to set up the site for your dumpster delivery. One important consideration is whether or not the our dumpster company can have an access to the drop off location. If you’re planning to place the dumpster on the street, the city might require you to get a necessary permit for it. We will help you figure out any necessary permits required.
If you’re planning to place the dumpster on your property in San Antonio, make sure not to place it on any grassy or soft ground. This is because dumpsters are very heavy, and without proper support they can do damage to your property or sink into the ground.
Even if you’re going to place the dumpster on a concrete or asphalt driveway, it would be wise to place some plywood under the dumpster’s wheels in order to prevent it from harming your driveway.
When filling the dumpster, make sure you don’t fill it more than 75% full and certainly not higher than the walls of the canisters. This is because the container has to be covered while we are transporting to the landfill.
So there you have it — all you need to know when hiring a dumpster for your project. It’s just a simple method of collecting the right information needed and giving us a call. Also, bear in mind some questions you should ask along with the standard price quote just to ensure you will not only choose the best price and are clear on any additional charges. Lastly, always keep in mind the things you need to prepare to make sure the dumpster will be located in the proper site and save your property from any damage.
