You’ve rolled up your sleeves. Your somewhat unreliable brother-in-law just pulled up — on time — ready to help. In just a few short hours, that cluttered basement of yours will be empty and unbelievably spacious.

10 Added Benefits You Might Not Expect From Your Dumpster Rental

Posted by Luke Hancock

Feb 28, 2015 4:19:00 PM

Consumers today are incredibly smart. So when a company says you’re getting something for free, you know darn well that “free” really isn’t all that free. Nine times out of 10, you’re either a) paying for it through the inflated cost of another service or b) it should be included in the product or service in the first place.

I’ll be honest, when it comes to the world of residential dumpster rental, you won’t find the word “free” casually thrown around. There are, however, some added benefits you might not expect from your rental experience. And while we can’t speak for all rental companies, we can speak from experience and on behalf of our Bin There Dump That local franchise operators.

Here are 10 added benefits you might not expect from a residential dumpster rental:

Why Should I Only Hire Licensed, Bonded and Insured Contractors?

Posted by Luke Hancock

Jan 23, 2015 4:22:00 PM

“Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.”

It’s okay to not like Murphy’s Law. Honestly, I don’t know anyone who does. That’s because it makes us think about the worst case scenario. And no one ever really wants to think about worst case scenarios — especially when home renovations are involved. It just sounds costly and dangerous.

For some peace of mind, Bin There Dump That likes to inform our customers that we’re a licensed, bonded and insured dumpster rental company. And anytime you invite a skilled laborer onto your property — roofers, plumbers, electricians, etc. — it’s wise to hire only those that are licensed, bonded and insured, as well.

Dumpster Rental FAQ: What Is Considered Household Hazardous Waste?

Posted by Luke Hancock

Jan 15, 2015 4:23:00 PM

“Is there anything that can’t go into the dumpster?” and “What is considered household hazardous waste?” are two frequently asked questions many of our Bin There Dump That customers ask us.

For home renovations, spring cleaning and even failed yard sales, residential dumpster rental can be the best way to go when you have a lot of “stuff” to get rid of. And while drywall, scrap wood, that rusted out trampoline and those boxes full of newspapers from the 1980s will feel right at home in a Bin There Dump That bin, it’s important to know that household hazardous waste cannot go into the dumpster.

With that said, let me take this opportunity to explain what waste is considered hazardous — and what options you have to dispose of it.

6 Unexpected Dumpster Rental Costs

Posted by Luke Hancock

Aug 4, 2014 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.

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.

Every business must balance inventory with its ability to service customers. Too much inventory and money sits on the shelves or in the warehouse. Too little inventory and customers are left frustrated and unable to fill their needs.

Bin There Dump That has done the research. We know based on an area’s population density, how many bins are likely scheduled to go out at any one time. But that’s what makes business fun. While the formula is perfectly valid, reality doesn’t know how to do math. A spike in need might mean a delay in getting a customer a bin.
