There are many reasons why your business may need to rent a dumpster. When you do need to get rid of a lot of junk quickly, it’s often the best option. However, you are also likely very aware of your budget as a business owner. You’ll want to make the most of your commercial dumpster when you have it, so you don’t have to extend your rental period or do anything else that will cost you more. That’s why if you’re looking for a dumpster rental in Houston, you’ll want to talk to Junk King. Here are a few ways you can get the most out of your dumpster and why Junk King should be your go-to partner for dumpsters and other junk removal needs.
Do You Need a Commercial Dumpster?
The first step in getting the most out of your dumpster is to make certain that you need one. Most businesses will have arranged some form of weekly bulk garbage pick-up. However, there may be times when you need to throw away a lot more than what that dumpster will hold. When that’s the case, it’s time to rent a commercial dumpster. Here are a few of the instances when you may need to look into dumpster rental.
You’re Starting a New Business
When you start a new business, you likely don’t have any garbage collection contracts in place. This means you don’t have any dumpster on-site, so renting a commercial dumpster is really your only option. Depending on the condition of the office space you’ve purchased or are renting, you may need to do some major renovations. There may be some junk to get rid of, and you may need to have some walls taken down or put up. All of this generates debris that you have to get rid of, and a commercial dumpster is the easiest solution for that. You can put the debris straight into the dumpster instead of piling it up somewhere.
You’re Moving to a New Location
Similarly, when moving to a new location, you may not have your weekly trash collection service set up at the new office. However, you may need to clean out or remodel the space to make it work for your needs. Bringing in a junk removal service or hiring a commercial dumpster is often the best option. Hiring Junk King to haul away the stuff you don’t need works well if all you’re doing is a clean-out. We will come pick up those left-behind desks, old shelving units, or whatever else you have.
However, if you’re doing a remodel, you may want a dumpster. This way, you have a space to throw the old cabinets, doors, flooring, and other debris, and it doesn’t have to pile up somewhere. Whether you need us to haul junk away or decide a dumpster is the way to go, be sure to include some plan for getting rid of trash and debris when planning your commercial renovation.
You’re Doing a Major Remodel
If you’re remodeling, you may already have garbage service at your location. However, a major remodel will likely create more debris than your standard trash service can take in a week. You will likely need to get an additional dumpster just to hold all of the trash the remodel generates. You may also be getting rid of old desks, shelves, and other items. You’ll need a large commercial dumpster to hold all of that. You may need a dumpster even if you’re doing a major clean-out. Even if you’re not moving walls, you may find that you have so much old junk that you need a dumpster or a junk removal company to handle it all.
What’s the Right Dumpster Size?
Now that you’ve decided you need a dumpster, it’s time to figure out what size you need. Some commercial dumpsters are huge. These dumpsters may seem like the perfect option, but you may find that they have a few drawbacks. First, they may actually be too big. You don’t get a good return on your dumpster rental if you only use a small amount of its space. Before renting your dumpster, take a good look at how much trash and debris you will have. You may realize that you don’t need the largest one out of the different dumpster sizes available. Your contractor can help estimate how much debris will come from the remodel itself. Then consider what else you’re getting rid of.
Second, where are you going to put your dumpster? A large dumpster is very heavy even when it’s empty, and it can easily make deep impressions in the yard or even crack a driveway as it fills up. Be sure you take this into consideration. You don’t want to damage your parking lot or landscaping with a huge dumpster, especially if a smaller option will work just as well.
Know What You Can Dispose of
What can you put in your dumpster? If you don’t know, you run the risk of additional fees being added to your cost. Here at Junk King, we can take just about anything, but we cannot handle anything hazardous. If you put hazardous waste in a dumpster, it can harm our crews and could potentially damage the dumpster itself. For anything that we can’t take, you’ll need to contact a hazardous waste disposal service.
Here are some of the things you can place in our commercial dumpsters:
– Furniture, including desks, shelves, chairs, and tables.
– Appliances, including refrigerators and microwaves.
– Electronic waste such as computers, televisions, and cell phones.
– Construction waste from remodeling projects.
– Garbage and trash.
Our junk removal team can take anything you can put in one of our dumpsters. If you ever have any questions about what we can take, just ask.
Keep Your Budget in Mind
Budgeting is vital if you want to keep your business in the black. Even budgeting for trash is vital to getting the best return on your investment. While renting a dumpster for a remodel or clean-out is something you’ll only do every now and then, you still need to budget for it. You want to make certain you find an affordable dumpster rental service, especially if you’re already spending a lot of money to remodel your office, warehouse, or other commercial space. It may be a small line item, but it’s still important that you shop around.
This is where Junk King’s unique pricing structure works in your favor. Instead of paying a flat fee for the dumpster, we charge by how much you use. Our cost is based on a few factors—first, the length of time. You can rent our dumpsters for three, five, or seven days. Next, we have a minimum cost. This is the least amount you’ll pay. If you only use a little bit of the dumpster, you’ll be charged this amount.
What if you fill the entire dumpster? Then you’ll pay the full cost. There’s also a rate for filling the dumpster about halfway, which is about 30% off the cost of a full dumpster. There are no other charges or fees added to the cost. You’ll pay based on how long you have the dumpster and how full it is at the end. That’s it. This means if you’re just cleaning out your retail location, you may find that you don’t use half of the space. Why pay for space you don’t use? We don’t think you should, so we make use of our unique tier system to help you save money.
