We live in a DIY generation.
It seems that almost everyone is keen on learning how to “Do It Yourself” with everything from car repairs to investing in the stock market to creating online businesses. In fact, there seems to be no end to the activities and skills that folks want to engage in as a DIY thing.
And remodeling their homes ranks high on the list.
The reality is, however, that homeowners have always been attempting their own remodeling projects. Not every homeowner, to be sure, but enough of the “handyman” types to make it a cottage industry for supplying these brave souls.
In fact, many of the “Big Box” hardware and home improvement stores are built on this type of business – supplying and outfitting “do it yourself-ers” to take on small and large projects on their homes.
How much do homeowners spend on DIY home projects? According to an article at Nerdwallet,
“The typical project cost now stands at about $1,500, according to census data, but the typical DIY project cost is $600. While it’s true that doing the work yourself can save you money, it’s also true that homeowners are more likely to DIY less complicated — and therefore lower-cost — projects.”
And HomeAdvisor notes that,
“Renovating a house costs $10 to $60 per square foot on average, but you might spend up to $150 per square foot. It really depends on the room and where you live. Kitchens and bathrooms cost the most. Bedrooms, living rooms and basements fall on the lower end.”
Remodeling or Renovation?
For the uninitiated, there may be some confusion with the terms “remodel” and “renovation” since they are sometimes – and erroneously – used interchangeably.
Simply put, the difference between them is that a renovation refers to restoring something to a previous state, while a remodel refers to creating something new. In other words, a renovation is typically revitalizing or modernizing a room or an entire house, usually with new flooring, new paint, or even new cabinet faces, etc.
A remodel, however, involves an actual change in the structure of a room or house. Gutting a kitchen or bathroom and completely rebuilding it with a different layout and design is a typical remodeling project.
So, what do all these projects have in common?
Trash, rubble, waste materials – debris. And it all has to be cleaned up and hauled away. Sometimes after the project is completed, as in the case of minor renovations, or even multiple times throughout the course of a project, as with a major remodel.
And, while there are options for debris and junk removal, one of the best solutions is a rental dumpster. This approach allows you to carry out and “dump” your remodeling debris yourself, at your own pace.
Rental Dumpsters in Dawsonville and All Points Beyond
Most folks might tend to think of those massive and usually ugly steel containers with doors on one end when they hear the word “dumpster.” And, while there are those types out there, that’s not what you get when you rent a dumpster from Junk King North Atlanta.
In fact, unlike a large, commercial dumpster that tears up asphalt and driveways. our cutting-edge MINI Dumpster is not only clean and attractive, but is smaller, user-friendly, and driveway safe!
Another great feature of our MINI Dumpster rental is the convenient side doors for easy access. This means you don’t have to lift or throw heavy debris over the sides to get it in the dumpster. This is important when you have concrete or masonry rubble to dispose of from your remodeling project.
In fact, the MINI is so accessible that just one adult can load it up. In addition, if you’re also getting rid of yard waste or landscaping debris there’s no need to put it all in bags first. Instead, you can simply toss it all in loose and fill it up with whatever you have including:
- Sheetrock, lumber, tile, and rubble
- Landscaping debris including soil and sod
- Old windows, doors, flooring, and even cabinets
- And any other household waste, debris, or unwanted junk!
The MINI Dumpster: Big Capacity. Small Package.
While the Junk King MINI Dumpster is smaller and more accessible than other industrial debris boxes, it is still a roll-off dumpster with a huge 12-cubic yard capacity that can hold all the waste and debris from just about any remodeling or renovation project.
How much is 12 cubic yards?
Picture a typical, full-size pickup truck. Now, the bed on a full-size standard pickup will hold 2.5 cubic yards of material when loaded level full. If you can imagine five pickup loads, that’s what our MINI Dumpster can handle in just one load!
Not only that, because of its smaller size and driveway-safe construction, our expert team can have your dumpster placed almost anywhere you want it and do so without damaging your sidewalk or driveway. That’s because the MINI is a dumpster made with residential use in mind.
And the best part is that our driveway-safe and easy-to-use MINI Dumpster is available to our neighbors throughout the North Atlanta area including places like Coal Mountain, Marble Hill, Silver City, Keithsburg, and Worley Crossroads.
Making Your Remodel a Bit Easier with an Easy Dumpster Rental
At Junk King North Atlanta, we work hard to keep things simple for our customers by providing a guarantee on-time drop-off and pick-up, and fair, upfront pricing. Most other dumpster rental companies have flat pricing, which simply means that you have to pay full price for their dumpster rental even if you don’t fill up the entire dumpster.
That’s not how we do things at Junk King! We let you pay only for the space you use in our dumpster. No flat fees, no hidden fees, and no added charges.
Once you’ve booked your dumpster rental, our friendly Junk King team will come to your home and place it for you. Then, for the next three days, you simply fill it up. Or, if you need to keep the MINI Dumpster a bit longer, we can accommodate that, as well.
And, when you’re done, Junk King will come back to pick up the dumpster and then take your debris to the appropriate recycling, donation, or other appropriate disposal destination.
Need to clean up during your remodel? Consider the advantages of a Junk King MINI Dumpster rental:
- You pay ONLY for the space you use!
- We guarantee our drop-off times.
- You can keep the MINI as long as you need.
- And you can fill it with just about anything except hazardous materials.
Our minimum price is our lowest charge to drop off and pick up the MINI Dumpster. If you have only a small amount of debris, you may qualify for the minimum charge. If you fill a MINI Dumpster at or close half full, you’ll get a discount off the full price. And, if your MINI is more than half full, you simply pay the low, full price for our MINI Dumpster rental service.
