5 Things to Look for in an Affordable Dumpster Rental Company
When it comes to dumpster rentals and waste disposal, not all companies serve their clients equally. Choosing the right waste bin services can be crucial to finishing your project on time and within your budget.
Dumpster rentals serve one purpose and one purpose only, to transport waste to another location. What separates one dumpster rental company from the next is the bins they offer, but how they conduct themselves and deliver the most value to their customers.
While we would love to put our foot in the door offering the fastest service at some of the lowest prices while still adhering to the highest environmental and safety standards, that is not what this article is about. We want you, the customer, to understand what factors you should consider when selecting your dumpster rental company. In the end, the price is just one factor you should consider.
For a good experience and peace of mind with your waste disposal, here are a few of the factors you should consider when searching for the right company:
1) Helpful Customer Service
Just like with any other service industry, there are things you should know as the customer. Things such as restricted and prohibited materials, the space required to place a bin, and
And while it is your responsibility to know them, it is hard to know where to look if you do not know about them in the first place. If you are new to renting a dumpster, you will want to hire a company you can reach out to at any time – one who is proactive in informing you, the customer, of all you need to know.
They should be responsive and professional in every way, helping you succeed in your project by doing what they do best, recycling waste and debris.
2) Timeliness & Reliability
The last thing you want from your waste bin company is for them to fail to drop off and pick your dumpster(s) when you need them to. Timeliness and reliability may not be as crucial for a customer clearing out their attic, but it is critical for businesses to avoid unnecessary delays and paying staff just to wait around.
As such, it is essential to choose a company that will honor their word when it comes to scheduling and meeting their commitments.
3) Past Performance & Reviews
Reviews can tell you a lot about a company. While no company can receive excellent reviews all the time, how they act can tell you a lot about how they operate day to day.
With the advent of the internet, people go online to read reviews of companies they intend to use their services. The same should also be the case when you need waste bin services in the Greater Vancouver region. From the reviews, you can get a sense of the customer experience you can expect from the company and determine whether you should avoid working with them.
4) Environmental Responsibility
As the client, your only concern should be to sort through and clear out your waste and debris. It is the job of companies like ours to ensure we inform you and help you along, so your junk does not contribute to the further degradation of the environment due to poor handling or disposal.
Therefore, you should consider working with a company that is conscious of the need to preserve the environment. Ideally, such a company should have processes to help maximize the chances all material is recycled.
Here at Fleetwood Waste, we help our clients understand how their waste will be treated and help them separate their waste to ensure it is all recycled.
5) Pricing & Fees
Finally, good waste bin services should balance the quality of the services offered and the rates at which they are made available. While you may be tempted to seek out companies with lower rates, you might be surprised by the lack of service you get.
Doing so may not be the best move. Therefore, do not be afraid to reach out to companies whose rates are in the middle ground. You are much more likely to get excellent and reliable service.
