Two Situations In Which You Should Rent A Roll-Off Dumpster

Whilst there are lots of different dumpsters you can rent, there are quite a few situations in which a roll-off dumpster is the best choice. Read on for some examples of instances in which you should opt for this item.

You need to be able to move the dumpster around

When some people rent dumpsters, they keep them in the exact spot they were unloaded until the day these dumpsters and the garbage in them is collected. However, if you suspect that you may have to move your dumpster from the area where it will initially be placed to another spot at some point (because, for example, a visitor is going to need to park their large construction equipment in that first area in a few days' time) then a roll-off dumpster would be the best container.

The reason for this is that under the base of this dumpster are a set of wheels that will enable you to move this container around. Whilst, if you put lots of heavy garbage into it, rolling it to another area could be a bit hard (and might require some help from other people), you should still be able to move it to a new position without having to get the garbage removal company to send their truck to your property and move the dumpster for you. This could save you some time and allow you to avoid the fee that the company might request for performing this service.

You need to put it in place quickly

If you have a very brief window of time available to let the garbage removal truck drop off your dumpster and you have to start filling it up with your trash within minutes of its arrival, then you should definitely pick a roll-off dumpster. The reason for this is that a roll-off dumpster is quicker and simpler to unload and park than most other dumpsters. All the truck driver has to do is open their trailer's back door and lift their trailer up, and the combination of the trailer's steep angle and the dumpster's wheels will result in your dumpster gliding down onto the ground in a minute or two.

Conversely, if you pick another dumpster that cannot be rolled onto the ground, it may take quite a while for the driver of the garbage truck to release it. This is because a dumpster without wheels has to be secured to the truck's telescopic arms with a set of chains, after which it has to be picked up and projected off the trailer by these arms and then positioned on the ground. All of these movements have to be performed incredibly slowly. If the truck driver rushes through this process, the chains and the dumpster they're holding might begin to swing and gain so much momentum from this movement that they collide with something or someone behind the truck.
