Dumpster Delivery Tips and Guidelines

What to Expect When You’re Expecting a Dumpster

So you’ve gone through the process of getting on the phone and renting a dumpster. Now you’re waiting for it to be delivered. Well, all you have to do is follow these 4 simple steps and you’ll be able to prepare your home or business for a dumpster delivery:

Step 1: Make Room for Your Dumpster Delivery

It’s essential to prepare your driveway or lot for your dumpster. Depending on which of our dumpster sizes you choose, you may need to move cars and other items occupying the space.

If this at all seems overwhelming, don’t worry. We take care of placement at the time of ordering, ensuring there’s plenty of room to deliver the dumpster so you can have a successful rental.

Step 2: Check Clearance for Delivery

Make sure the delivery area is clear of potential hanging objects like wires or tree branches. Our largest size dumpster is 7 feet tall, but you also have to account for the height of the truck and its raised flatbed. All things considered, the truck will need to have at least 14-18 feet of vertical clearance depending on the size of the dumpster you choose.

Step 3: Don't Panic If It Isn’t There First Thing in the Morning

Dumpster delivery takes place within a 1-2 business days of ordering, depending on availability, and they can arrive at any time during normal work hours. Each delivery is scheduled based on the most fuel-efficient route for the driver. This helps keep costs low and ensures there’s enough time to deliver all the dumpsters scheduled for delivery on that day.

Step 4: After Dumpster Delivery

It’s critical to fill your dumpster with the right debris for its size and purpose and know what you can throw in a dumpster. For example:
