Dumpster Renting vs Junk Hauling

Finally getting to that house remodeling, construction project, debris removal, or just renovating furniture? Well, you have two efficient solutions for your next project. You could either hire a junk hauling service or rent a roll off dumpster. Don’t know much about either services? Well that’s alright we’ll walk you through the process of which would better benefit your needs.

The Dumpster Rental Process

Dumpster renting has been around since the 1940s, and it’s easier than ever to rent one with Bargain Dumpster. Dumpster renting is for the self- service folks who don’t mind getting their hands dirty and loading things on their own time. The process of renting a dumpster with Bargain Dumpster is easy and simple. Give us a call at 1-800-856-2896 and speak to one of our helpful customer service representatives. If you know what container size is appropriate for you, then that’s great! It’s okay if you don't as we’d be more than happy to make a recommendation based on the scale of your project. We give you an affordable and competitive quotation based on your needs. There are no hidden fees or charges, and what you hear over the phone is what you’ll pay for (provided that you adhere to our policies). We’ll drop the container off where and when you’d like, and you can fill it up within your rental period. Make sure to level the container, and we’ll haul it off for you.

Dumpsters come in 10, 15, 20, 30, and 40 cubic yard sizes with Bargain Dumpster. A 10 cubic yard dumpster rental would be ideal for a garage clean up or a small scaled project that would amount to three full size pickup truck loads of waste. A 40 cubic yard dumpster is ideal for construction projects and extremely large projects like a demolition that would amount to twelve full size pickup truck loads of waste. Be mindful of where you’d like the dumpster placed on your property as they may become extremely heavy if you exceed the weight limit (this could damage your property). Don’t exceed the weight restrictions imposed upon your dumpster rental.

The Junk Hauling Process

Junk hauling is a service that is available for small scaled projects and for those who require assistance with loading up the pickup truck. This service is ideal for furniture removal, spring or fall cleaning projects, room renovations, and removal of debris. The primary difference is that they do all the lifting for you for an extra fee (of course). It’s just as easy to hire a junk hauler as they work quickly and are out within a certain timeframe. There are several reasons as to when a dumpster rental would be better than junk hauling.

  • You require flexibility for your project, and need to have the dumpster longer than a day.
  • You’re not afraid to get your hands dirty and load the dumpster up yourself to save money on labor charges imposed by junk hauling companies.
  • If you have at least 10 cubic yards of waste to be thrown away.

There are several reasons as to when a junk hauling service would be a better option than a dumpster rental.

  • You cannot load the dumpster for yourself
  • Your project can be cleaned up fairly quickly
  • You need a bulky furniture set or appliances gone.
  • All your debris are in a central location which would make it efficient and quick for the junk haulers, and you don’t mind paying extra for labor.

A Small Note From Us:

Sure, junk hauling is efficient because you aren’t loading it up, but at the end of the day it’ll be more expensive than renting a dumpster. An exception to this statement is if you only have a few bulky items, and you don’t have excessive debris all over the place. If you do decide to go with a dumpster rental, be sure to rent one of our dumpsters. We’ll help you save time and money compared to other competitors and junk hauling services. Treat yourself with the all money you'll save when you choose to rent with us!
