Can I haggle to get a better price?

Dumpster rental firms normally have set costs, but the fine art of negotiation is consistently in play. If you want to dicker on the price, call around to other companies first so you know what the going rental rate is. When you are speaking to the company you want to use, just mention other costs that are better than theirs. Some companies will not only fit that lower cost, they are going to actually defeat it to suit their customers.

You can even ask about discounts when you are renting a dumpster in Somerville. Some companies will supply special discounts to active members of the military, veterans, seniors, members of the local Chamber of Commerce and much more. It really never hurts to ask; you can occasionally save up to 10 percent or more with this system.

How high can I fill my dumpster?

You can fill your dumpster as high as you like, as long as you really do not load it higher in relation to the sides of the container. Over-filling the dumpster could cause the waste or debris to slide off as the dumpster is loaded onto the truck or as the truck is driving. Overloaded or heavy dumpsters are not really safe, and businesses don't carry dangerous loads to be able to safeguard drivers and passengers on the road.

In certain places, dumpster loads must be tarped for security. If your load is too high, it WOn't be able to be tarped so you will have to remove some of the debris before it can be hauled away. This might result in extra costs if it demands you to keep the dumpster for a longer duration of time. Remember to maintain your load no higher in relation to the sides of the dumpster, and you will be good.

Terms to be aware of when renting a dumpster in Somerville

"Container" and "roll off" are both satisfactory terms for the big metal box you need to rent. Professionals don't use the term "dumpster" as much as the other terms. Containers are often rented in cubic yard sizes, but you don't have to comprise the "cubic" part. Merely say "yard" or "yarder." If, for instance, you need to rent a 30-yard dumpster, you can say, "I'm interested in a 30-yard roll off" or "I'd like to rent a 30-yarder." Take advantage of these terms, and you'll sound like a pro when you call.
