Clean. It. Out.

We know. We can sense your shudder from here. But it has to be done. Next up: The fun part. Once you have that nice open space, the possibilities are endless.

6 Unexpected Dumpster Rental Costs

Posted by Luke Hancock

Apr 1, 2020 5:10:00 PM

Caveat emptor (buyer beware). Read the fine print. Hidden fees.

Even the most savvy shoppers sometimes get caught by unexpected charges on their bill.

There’s nothing wrong with a company making a profit — that’s what they’re in business for. We don’t think anyone would (or could) dispute that. The question becomes how businesses go about turning that profit.

Have you ever listened to a commercial on the radio and then at the end a guy comes on and reads a disclaimer, which in the last three seconds has more words in it than the rest of the commercial did in the first 27 seconds? What is it they’re trying to hide? It’s the same concept that turns a $129 hotel room into one that really costs $159 a night.

Many companies hide charges from their customers springing fees on them after the fact. Companies might push them off as the “cost of doing business,” which while technically true, creates ill will with customers.

When it comes to bin rental costs, there are so many variables to consider. Among those costs in dumpster rental prices include:

  • Length of the rental
  • Cost to dispose waste at a local dumping facility
  • Where you live
  • What trash you decide to throw into the bin

Bin There Dump That has no hidden fees. Though our franchise operators do charge some of the dumpster rental fees described below, they are communicated ahead of time.

Here are six dumpster rental costs customers might not expect — but will definitely know about before they begin their dumpster rental.

They say size matters. And we agree — at least when it comes to the size of the Bin There Dump That bin rental needed to help you complete your next project.

Bin sizes are measured in cubic yards. In case you can’t remember your high school geometry that means measuring the length, width and height of the container and multiplying the three numbers together. For example, a bin that is 2 yards long, 2 yards wide and 1 yard tall is 4 cubic yards.
