Construction Dumpster Tips for De Smet, SD
What size construction dumpster should I rent?
This dumpster is designed for medium to large construction projects and is a great option for interior demolition projects, barn demo, and more.
40 yard dumpsters are a great option for large construction job site cleanups and are the largest option at most dumpster rental companies.
Note: Dumpster sizes vary from one company to the next, so make sure you discuss your dumpster needs with each company you speak to and determine whether or not they can meet those needs.
How do I get the best deal on a construction dumpster?
Rent local, not national. On average, the cost of renting a 20 yard dumpster from Waste Management was $550 compared to $450 from a local hauler. Local haulers are around $100 cheaper on average!
Avoid high-priced brokers. They appear local at first glance but are actually out-of-state middlemen that do not own any dumpsters. Instead, they charge a 10-20% increase to pass that order on to a local hauler, skimming the extra cost off the top for themselves.
Get multiple quotes. Reach out to multiple dumpster providers to compare costs and weight allowances. When reaching out to companies, be prepared with as much information about your project as possible. This will help to ensure you choose the right dumpster for your project needs.
Choose the right size. The cost of renting a dumpster increases with the size of the container, so it's smart to get the smallest dumpster you need. However, if you get a dumpster that is too small, you’ll have to pay double to rent the dumpster twice, so don’t skimp on size to save a buck; it may backfire.
