When you’re about to undertake a mega housecleaning project, you need to start thinking about the dumpster you’re going to rent. Most dumpster rental services offer several different options in the sizes of dumpsters so you can choose which one tailors to your needs exactly.
Despite the choices available, choosing the right size isn’t always that easy and if you don’t know what you’re doing you might end up renting the wrong dumpster size for your project. Here are a few things to consider when choosing the size of your dumpster rental.
Small Sized Dumpster: Less Capacity but Easier to Manage
Small sized dumpsters have the advantage over larger sizes when it comes to management. The relatively small size of these dumpsters takes up less space on the road and is less damaging to the property. It’s also easier to move around the dumpster and load and unload the waste as required. If your house is located on a particularly narrow street, a small sized dumpster might be your only option.
One obvious problem with small sized dumpsters is that they don’t have a lot of capacity for bigger projects like property remodeling or renovation. You might face difficulty loading all of your trash in these small sized dumpsters. Overflowing of waste is a common problem with these small sized dumpster rentals.
To stay on the absolute safe side, use your judgment to estimate the amount of waste your project will produce and then choose a dumpster size slightly larger than what you have estimated.
Large Sized Dumpster: Larger Capacity but Harder to Manage
Large sized dumpsters are simply not appropriate to rent if you live in a narrow street. They could cause damage to your property and the surrounding trees and road, and they will be harder to move around. In fact, in some roads, it might not be permissible to rent a large sized dumpster.
But one pro of large dumpsters that make them a popular size option is that they have plenty of space to accommodate all kinds of waste. Many people choose to go with larger size options for this very reason.
The best strategy in choosing the right sized dumpster is to stay somewhere in the middle. Good dumpster rental companies will give you options to choose from medium sized dumpsters as well and not just two size extreme. Medium-sized dumpsters might be the best option to choose for most projects.
