There are some services which we avail that appear to be so run off mill that it does not matter who we hire. No matter who we hire, the results are likely to be similar. Some of these services include flower delivery, taxi rides, etc. If you are doing major yard work or huge renovations around the home, you may think that dumpster rentals fall into that category as well. However, to be honest, with any of these services, you’ll get drastically different results depending on the company you hire.
That being said, let us look into how service provider choice affects your garbage bin or dumpster rental experience or you could check their information website.
The Service Price
With almost every service on this planet, the price ends up being a huge factor. The cost tends to become even more of a factor when you assume that the results will be similar with every service provider. Due to these assumptions, some garbage dumpster rental companies have employed some sneaky price tactics. Similar to airlines, they advertise a certain price, but then end up using all sorts of methods to sneak in additional charges.
So, you will want to be careful about your company of choice, especially if the price seems low. You can be certain that they plan to add some extra charges after you sign the rental contract. And the unfortunate part is that most first-time junk bin renters would not get into what other fees might apply.
The dumping fee is the most obvious fee that can vary a lot depending on where the company takes the junk and whether it gets recycled. However, a competent waste removal company will find ways to keep the dumping fee to a minimum. However, keep an eye for businesses who are overly dedicated to quoting a low price, but end up adding costs for things like pick-up, delivery, weekend rates, etc.
Quality of Service
When you go for the lowest quote, the dumpster rental company often has to cut corners. This can be in the form of paying workers lower wages and even keeping fewer bins on hand. They may also take their time in delivering as well as picking up the rented dumpster with the aim of making things fit their schedule instead of your’s.
Sadly, it is not always easy to determine the level of service before using a certain company. They might have a well-designed site or a catchy advert, but that does not guarantee that their services are top of the line. You need to dig deeper.
So, take the time to find client testimonials and reviews about the dumpster rental company. If anybody disliked their services, chances are they went online to show their frustrations. Also, the company’s Better Business Bureau can be particularly worth checking out.
You may also want to pay attention to how quickly they respond to calls, emails, and queries. This will usually show what kind of service you can expect from them.
The Experience of the Company
In addition to gauging the level of service, the company’s experience is another good way to know whether you are making a good choice.
Be wary of dumpster rental companies that are relatively new to the industry. That’s because chances are they are still learning the ins and outs of the business and making mistakes. You do not want to use a service that may not meet their scheduling commitments or a company that might damage your driveway.
It takes several years for a company in this industry to establish themselves. Experience ensures that they are less likely to make mistakes and since their reputation is important to them, they are going to provide satisfactory services. They have spent too much time building their name to afford to get complaints due to poor service.
On the flip side, you may want to avoid companies that are too big to give personalized services. Sometimes, these companies have so many clients that chances of getting impersonal service are too many. For them losing a single client is not too big of a deal. This is particularly true for dumpster companies that operate nationwide.
In summary, if you want your desired dumpster to be delivered and picked on time, do your homework. Also, you will get quality service and reasonable pricing.
