»Posted by on Mar 30, 2020 in Dumpster Rental | 0 comments

Renting a dumpster is always an ideal option to help with your cleanup, no matter what type of project you’ve got, whether you are doing a major house clean up or remodeling your house. The dumpster will be delivered and picked up from your house. This will free you from the hassle of determining how to get rid of all the debris. Though the delivery and pickup of the dumpsters are left to the experts, preparing your property for dumpster rental delivery will be your job.  

Here are a couple of tips that can help you: 

Know the Guidelines 

Making sure that you know the guidelines for what you can and can’t throw in the dumpster is the first thing you’ve got to do to prepare yourself for the dumpster. There are various kinds of dumpsters that enable particular types of materials. You should ask the dumpster company what items are allowed in the dumpster. Also, the company should know if a permit is needed to have the dumpster on your property. This is particularly true if you’re going to place it in public property. Knowing these rules beforehand will stop you from spending additional fees from fines or penalties.  

Mark the Delivery Spot 

It can be useful if you mark the area where you want to place the dumpster. This will make things a lot simpler for everybody. With this, the truck operator will exactly know where you want to place the dumpster. This will make the process as easy as possible. You can utilize cones or other items to mark the spot. A lot of individuals choose to put a piece of plywood to mark the spot. Aside from that, it also helps protect the concrete or asphalt from damage.  

Make Room for The Dumpster 

You will have to exactly choose where you want to place the dumpster before it is delivered. After that, you’ve got to ensure that the area is clear of any obstructions after you choose the placement. You can move the vehicles or any other items away from that spot. Also, you’ve got to ensure that there is adequate space on every side of the dumpster so that it’s accessible easily. It’s extremely vital to also consider any overhanging obstructions as well. The delivery truck will require at least 20 feet of vertical space to unload safely your dumpster. The dumpster rental company should tell you how much space is required for the dumpster size that you’ve rented.  

DoubleCheck on Delivery Day 

You have to go outside and double-check the spot on the day of the dumpster delivery. You’ve got to ensure no debris has blown or fallen into the spot. You can kindly ask your neighbors to move their vehicles if they’re parked on the street in front of your house. This will provide enough area for the truck to drop the dumpster. This will avoid delays in the delivery and possible damage to the cars of your neighbors. Thus, saving you money.
