Make sure you are renting a dumpster from a licensed and insured company.Wouldn't it be great if every time you’re about to make a mistake, somebody jumped out with a big red flag and yelled, “Hold it right there!”

Life would be so much easier.

We can’t follow you around all the time (that would be creepy) but we’re happy to help you out in the dumpster rental department.

Here are five red flags to avoid when you’re considering a dumpster rental company.

Nobody Answers The Phone

Hello? Hello? If you can’t get a real person to answer the phone, take your business elsewhere. You deserve a knowledgeable operator on the other end of the line who can answer all your dumpster rental FAQs. Not an automated system that will put you off until later.

Voicemail runaround? No, thanks.

When you call your local Bin There Dump That to arrange a bin rental, you’ll speak with a local franchise operator — not an automated system. This means you get answers to all your questions on the spot.

It also means you can arrange for your bin rental right away — not hours or days later.

The Owners Are … Someplace Else

Local ownership makes a (huge) difference. If you just Google “dumpster bins,” you may end up connecting with a broker service — not a local bin company owner. That means you’ll pay more than you need to, if the service takes a cut. And you might end up talking to a marketing professional — not a dumpster rental operator —  who knows nothing about the dumpster rental industry.

Local businesses take pride in their customer service and their solid reputation. Their business depends on it.

Unsightly Bins

Your dumpster rental bin should be clean, tidy and professional.

Just because dumpster bins are hauling away ugly stuff doesn't mean they have to be ugly.

Your rental bin will be parked in your driveway for a few days. It should be clean, tidy and professional. It shouldn’t embarrass you in front of your neighbors.  

Bin There Dump That bins are clean and professional. And we have clean, professional, courteous drivers to match.

If your neighbors are talking behind your back, it won’t be because our dumpster is in your driveway.

They Won’t Give You References

Big red flag here. A reputable company knows word of mouth is key to business success. They should be happy to put you in touch with satisfied customers who will recommend their work.

Bin There Dump That is a company that's licensed, bonded and insured.Bin There Dump That operators know their customers have great things to say. Ask away.

They’re Not Licensed, Bonded And Insured

Are you dealing with a company that’s licensed, bonded and insured? Ask about this. It’s important.

When a contractor is licensed, it typically means he or she has the minimum insurance and bonding required by the local government.

What’s bonding? Contractors purchase a surety bond, a type of insurance that serves as a safety net for the homeowner. If a contractor fails to do everything agreed on in their contract with the homeowner, the bond will cover the expenses required to correct or complete the job.

Contractors with liability insurance will cover any property damage or injuries incurred while working on your home. If your contractor isn’t insured, you, the homeowner, could be held liable if a worker is injured on your property.

No worries about any of this if you choose Bin There Dump That — we’re licensed, bonded and insured.

Red Flags? What Red Flags?

Rent a dumpster from Bin There Dump That and the only thing waving will be you, waving bye to all your discarded junk. Take a good look as the truck drives away, because we won’t leave any reminders. No damage to your driveway, no debris to sweep up.

When it’s time, contact a franchise operator near you.
