Dumpster Rental Pricing Factors

If you are planning a renovation project or clean out for your New York home, chances are good that you will need a dumpster to properly dispose of your waste. Instead of spending several thousands of dollars on purchasing one, it makes much more sense to rent. If you are in the process of searching for a dumpster rental provider and gathering quotes, you may notice price disparities between different companies. In order to understand why dumpster rental prices can vary so much, it is important to understand what factors are involved in determining a rental price. These factors are:

  • Dumpster Size. This is the most obvious factor that impacts the price of your dumpster rental. The bigger the dumpster you need, the more money it is going to cost you.
  • Location. Your location also plays a role in determining how much you will pay when you rent your next dumpster. There are a few reasons for this; firstly, transporting a dumpster is not free for the company. The further they have to drive, the more it will cost them, and the more it will cost you. Your proximity to the nearest disposal site will also be taken into consideration, as well as the different fees that these sites charge to unload your waste.
  • Duration of Rental. The average length of a dumpster rental is between 7-10 days. Usually, each company will have a specify how long their rental period is; if you want to rent it for a longer period of time, you will have to pay extra (usually per day).
  • Other Fees. Not all materials all created equally, especially when it comes to dumpster rentals. Certain items, such as household appliances, electronics, mattresses, and car tires require special treatment in order to be properly disposed. Most companies will not accept these items unless you pay an additional fee.
