Short Term vs. Long Term Dumpster Rental
People rent dumpsters for a variety of reasons. What differs from job to job is how long you’re going to need the dumpster. Most dumpsters are rented out by the day, or by a set block of days. Long-term dumpster rental is usually for 7-10 days, for instance, at a certain price per day.
What Is Short Term Rental?
A short-term rental is one that will last from 1 to 3 days. This is quick and easy to set up, and it won’t cost you very much money. The dumpster will be delivered and you can get about filling it up with whatever you are throwing away. But what if you find out the job will take longer than expected?
A good waste management company is going to work with you. If you need an extra day, the chances are it won’t be a problem. However, if you keep needing to add days because of an emergency or some unforeseen circumstance, the cost of the dumpster rental will increase.
What Is Long Term Dumpster Rental?
In most cases, a long-term dumpster rental is one that is expected to last more than seven days. These are typically for long festivals, like State Fairs, as well as construction and demolition projects. It can also be an arrangement between property owners and the waste management company to have a dumpster available indefinitely.
The benefit of long-term dumpster rental is that you’ll always have the dumpster when you need it. This can open up timetables on large-scale jobs, such as remodeling multiple rooms of your home. The longer you rent the dumpster, in many cases, the cheaper it will be per day.
Long-term rental is the more flexible option, so it might be the best suited for more tasks. However, a lot of the time, you simply won’t need a dumpster for a week or more.
Each Situation Is Different
One of the best resources you have is the consultant you set up your dumpster rental with. They will be able to help you assess how long you’ll need it. They are there to work with you. They want your experience to go well because it’s their job to take care of your needs.
Which option is better for you comes down to the task at hand. The larger and more involved a job is, the greater the chance that it will take longer than expected. In these cases, you might want to set up a long-term rental. If you’re confident that the job is small and easy, a short-term rental would be best.
