Working on a residential site has its own set of demands and requirements.
As the general contractor, you need to keep the site clean, have the right skills for the job, understand the space limitation and be reachable for clients.
Not only do homeowners expect all of that, but you should also look for the same things when choosing a dumpster rental company for the project.
Here are four reasons general contractors should consider using roll-off dumpster for residential projects.
Clean Working Area
When you work on a residential project, you’re responsible for keeping the homeowner’s property and streets clean during the project and when it’s completed. There’s nothing worse than tearing up a client’s property when they hired you to fix it.
So you need a bin that won’t harm the area.
Bin There Dump That places wooden boards under the bin — whether it’s on the driveway or in the yard — to keep the property scratch- and gouge-free. Bin There Dump That is also insured, so they will cover any damage or injury caused by the rental company.
Not only will the bins not damage your client’s property, but they also won’t leave behind a mess. The driver will sweep up the area before leaving with the dumpster — cleaning up materials like nails, glass, wood or scraps. They will also tarp the dumpster before driving off, so debris won’t fly out of the bin.
Your client’s neighbors will see how you and the dumpster operator take care of the property during the project, which can result in new business for your company.
Meet Your Needs
Each residential project is different, and you need a dumpster that’s versatile enough to handle all of them.
When you’re doing roofing work, for example, you’ll want to have a bin to hold shingles and other debris. Our bins are nimble enough that you can move them next to the house and sweep the materials into them.
For landscape projects, you can have the bin placed right next to where you’re working — instead of carrying materials to a truck or bin on the street. And if you’re doing work inside the house, you can either place the bin in the yard or driveway — whichever works best.
The dumpsters can hold construction and landscaping materials like concrete, bricks, topsoil, shingles and gravel.
You can also rent the bin as long as needed. Bin There Dump That franchisees usually charge on a seven-day basis and then per day, if you need it longer.
But there’s more to a project than just having a bin that fits on the site and holds the debris.
You’ll also want to work with a dumpster rental company that understands your residential financial needs. Restoration companies, for example, often need invoices right away because they don’t get paid until the insurance companies get paid.
