The Dumpster Rental Experience

dumpster san franciscoSo, what should you expect when you rent a dumpster in San Francisco? We can’t speak for other companies, but when you rent from Junk King, you can expect an easy, painless customer experience from start to finish. Below, we’ve outlined some of the key steps and touchpoints of the dumpster rental process, as well as what you should expect at each stage.

  • The inquiry

If you are ready to rent a dumpster, click here and scroll down until you see the contact form on the right-hand side of the page. You can always call Junk King, but booking online can save you $30. When you fill out the form, you will provide us with your name, address, zip code, phone number, and email address. You can also input the date you need the rental and the online form should give you some timeslots from which to choose. In some cases, you might be asked to call Junk King to talk about the details of your order.

  • The Sizing

What about dumpster sizing, you may ask? One of the big considerations, when you rent with most dumpster companies, is how large a bin you need. Do you need a dumpster that is 20 cubic yards in capacity, or can you get by with on that is only 15? From our experience at Junk King, we’ve noticed that customers just don’t know how much space they need. As such, choosing a dumpster rental size is little more than taking shots in the dark. It adds a lot of stress to the process. Getting something too small is a hassle, while getting something too big means paying extra for no real reason.

To avoid the stress and streamline the rental process, Junk King just has one dumpster size: The Junk King MINI. The MINI is a 12-cubic yard bin that is the perfect size to fit in most driveways. It tends to be the perfect size for most self-service junk removal tasks, capable of handling smaller refuse items and bigger ones (such as furniture and appliances) alike.

  • The Pricing

Because of different dumpster sizes and other factors, most dumpster rental companies have complex pricing structures. Not so with Junk King. By narrowing our self-service dumpster rentals down to just the MINI, we have been free create a pricing structure that is both more nuanced and easier to understand.

First, there are no hidden charges or fees with your dumpster rental. We don’t like companies that nickel and dime their customers with unfair extraneous charges, and we don’t want to be one of them.

Secondly, we offer tiered pricing based on how long you need your dumpster rental. If you know you are going to knock out a spring cleaning project in a weekend, a three-day rental should be perfect. For longer projects, you can rent your dumpster for five or seven days. No matter which tier you choose, there is a clear expectation on both sides of when the dumpster is going to be picked up and how much the rental will cost.

Third, and most crucially, you only pay for the dumpster space you use with Junk King. With most companies, you rent a dumpster and pay the full price, whether you fill it halfway or all the way. At Junk King, we have different pricing tiers based on how much space you actually use. These prices can vary depending on your location and how long you need the dumpster. The minimum tier—for dumpsters that are less than half full—can cost as low as $125 for your entire rental. The 1/2 MINI tier ranges from $198 to $350. And even if you fill your dumpster, you could pay as low as $275 (pricing was accurate at the time of publishing this post).

If you end up filling your dumpster and still need more space, just let us know. Junk King will pick up the initial dumpster and drop off another MINI for you to fill. Whether you are on your second, fifth, or tenth MINI, you will still only pay for the space you use.

  • The Drop-off/pick-up process

When you rent a dumpster, it’s probably crucial that you get it on time. Otherwise, you will have nowhere to toss your trash, building debris, or other junk when the time comes to clean, move, or renovate. At Junk King, you schedule your drop-off and pick-up times beforehand. Our crews then guarantee that they will be on time for both appointments. We’ll even call you 15 minutes before your drop-off, to confirm the time and make sure you are there to accept the delivery. With this process, there is no confusion about where the dumpster is or when it is coming. You also don’t have to worry about a packed dumpster sitting in your driveway for several days, attracting flies or other pests. We’ll be there on time to retrieve the junk and haul it away forever.

  • The professionals

Your interactions with Junk King professionals will be minimal throughout the rental process. We provide quick, timely deliveries and pick-ups and then get out of your hair so you can go to work. However, you can always expect these interactions to be positive and pleasant. We believe very firmly in the power of good customer service and have gone to great lengths to provide it. Our employees are friendly, licensed, insured, uniformed professionals with the vehicles, training, and knowledge to handle your delivery or pick-up with aplomb. Rest assured knowing that our delivery representatives will be extremely careful to ensure we don’t place the MINI in such a way that damages your driveway or yard in any way.

  • The sustainability

Usually, the words “trash” or “junk” and “sustainability” don’t go hand-in-hand. The average junk removal service picks up your dumpster and takes it immediately to the nearest landfill. That’s not the case with Junk King. Instead, we take your bin(s) to our local Junk King warehouse and meticulously sort through everything. Some of the stuff can either be reused, repurposed, or recycled. By pulling these items out before they end up in the landfill, we do our part to protect the planet and offer our customers a more sustainable solution. We know that you might not necessarily have the time to worry about sorting items when preparing for a move or cleaning out a cluttered house. We take care of it for you, which is why we’ve been named “America’s greenest junk removal service.”
