Risks of Renting a Dumpster From an Uninsured Company
Even the most experienced companies with the highest quality dumpsters can sometimes make mistakes, which is why it's so important to make sure that they have insurance to protect themselves and you.
Whether it be damage to the property or the injury of a hired professional, an insured dumpster company will have the coverage needed to pay for the cost of remediation.
An uninsured company, however, leaves you open to financial risk, as you would be responsible for paying damages. A person injured on your property could also have legal grounds to sue you for damages.
It may seem unfair, but this is why we always recommend hiring qualified and insured dumpster rental services.
A "company" or individual who is willing to operate a business illegally may not have the best intentions to begin with.
In addition to safety and legal risks, theft and other damage is a potential risk from people who aren't registered as a licensed company in the area they're offering services.
It's much easier for people to get away with theft and other damages if there is no paper trail that could lead the authorities to them, leaving you responsible to deal with the aftermath.
Don't fall for the lure of cheaper prices if it comes with the cost of these potentially very expensive risks.
