We see others nickel and diming customers to try to make up for the artificially low prices they promote. We decided to NOT play that game, so instead, we show you our rate. Period. End of discussion. Unless you exceed our generous weight maximums, you pay the price quoted by your Dumpster on Demand rep.

Yes, you can fill the dumpster. But you can’t over-fill a unit. We’re required by law to cover the units during transportation, so you’ll need to keep your stuff within the confines of the unit, below the edge of the top of the unit. If you think you’ll struggle there, it’s probably best to get a larger unit.

We make every effort to NOT damage property. Yours, ours, theirs. That’s just good business. In some situations, we may suggest adding a protective barrier or material to make sure there’s no damage. If you have concerns or your property presents special challenges, let us know. We’ll work with you to make sure we get the dumpster in and out without tearing stuff up. For truly sensitive areas, we offer a full array of ground protection options at modest rates. We’ll work with you to find a way to get our dumpster in the right spot without damaging your site.

We try to get units to customers as quickly as they need it, whether that’s same-day, next-day or future-day service. Of course, inventory, schedules and the occasional challenge thrown at us by Mother Nature can derail those plans. But we’ll make every attempt to get it to you quickly, communicating any delays as soon as they’re know.

Typical dumpster rentals are 7 days, but we’ll work with you if you need it for more or less time. If you discover, after you’ve received your dumpster, that you’ll need it longer than the rental period, that’s fine. You can keep it for just a nominal daily fee. Just let us know when you’re finished with the dumpster and we’ll get it out of your way.

We will put the dumpster where you want us to place it, so hopefully there’s no need to move it. And frankly, they’re kinda challenging to handle without the right kind of equipment. So we’d prefer you not try to move it. Plus, if you damage it… well, let’s just not go there.

A cubic yard is 3’x3’x3’. Or 27 cubic feet. Most people don’t know what that looks like, but if you think of your standard trash toter, those hold roughly 100 gallons of stuff and ONE cubic yard is equal to TWO toters worth of stuff. Or, look at it another way, a pick-up truck bed holds about 2 cubic yards worth of stuff.

This sounds like a trick question… we’ve put together a basic chart that shows what some commonly discarded items weigh, by the cubic yard. You can see that here.

First, understand that our maximum weights are pretty generous, if we do say so ourselves. So unless you’ve got some really heavy stuff, it may not be an issue. But if you do exceed the weight maximum, you’ll simply need to pay an overage fee of $55/ton. Here’s a chart showing how much stuff typically weighs.
