When it comes to disposing of large amounts of waste or unwanted items, many people turn to either dumpster rental services or junk removal services. Both options have their pros and cons, however, dumpster rentals can be a more convenient way to dispose of unwanted items. When is dumpster rental best for you? In this blog, we will explore the differences between dumpster rental services and junk removal services to help you out.

Differences Between Dumpster Rental Services and Junk Removal Services

Dumpster rental services and junk removal services both aim to help you dispose of unwanted items, but there is a key difference between the two.

Junk removal services involve a team of professionals coming to your property and removing unwanted items for you. Dumpsters have a weight limit so if you have bulky items or larger furniture removal that won’t fit in a dumpster, junk removal can be ideal to get rid of items quickly and efficiently.

Dumpster rental services provide you with a dumpster that you can fill with your unwanted items. Although there is a weight limit, larger dumpsters can accommodate quite a large amount of waste and you can rent as many as you need. Once the dumpster is full, the dumpster rental company will come and pick it up and dispose of the contents. Dumpster rental services can be used for a cleanup project or decluttering project. You can also rent a dumpster for demolition projects, construction sites, or if you have ongoing waste disposal needs.

For your convenience, Bargain Bins has a fixed price, 7-day rental time period so you can plan both your budget and your time. 

Are Dumpster Rental Services Better Than Junk Removal Services?

There are certain scenarios where dumpster rental services are a better disposal method. If you have an ongoing or lengthy project, dumpster rental services may be a better option than junk removal services. For example, if you have a home renovation project or a landscaping overhaul, it is more convenient to rent a dumpster than to continuously call a junk removal team who might have to make multiple trips to your home over the course of your project. 

A roll-off dumpster rental is also more affordable if you have a large amount of waste during a clean-up project. You can simply have the dumpster placed where you need it and load it as you go, rather than hire a team to do it for you. You can ask your friends or family to help out, or if you have a construction team, you likely already have team members on hand to load debris into the dumpster. The dumpster will also be hauled off by the dumpster rental company so you have one less thing to worry about. 

Junk removal however may be best in cases where you have an extremely tight deadline or furniture items that won’t fit in even the largest dumpster. Also, if you don’t have people available to move heavy items into the dumpster, a junk removal service might fight your needs better. These services can often be more costly due to the labor cost involved. However, we suggest you do your research to find affordable options. 

When to Rent a Dumpster?

If you have a project that will generate a lot of waste, such as a home renovation or a landscaping project, renting a dumpster can be a cost-effective and convenient option. Dumpster rental services typically offer a range of sizes to accommodate different needs, and you can usually keep the dumpster for several days or weeks depending on the terms of the rental agreement. With Bargain Bins, you’ll receive 7 days which gives you plenty of time to fill the dumpster at your own pace and eliminates the need for multiple trips to a landfill or waste disposal site. If you think you’ll need more than 7 days, be sure to coordinate with our staff to ensure availability.

How to Rent a Dumpster

Renting a dumpster is a straightforward process. Just determine what size dumpster you need based on the amount of waste you will be disposing of (if you are unsure, Bargain Bins can help you out). You will receive a quote based on the amount of waste you are disposing of, which determines the size of dumpster you need. You will then have to schedule a delivery date and time for the dumpster to be dropped off. Once the dumpster arrives, you can fill it at your own pace. Make sure you follow any guidelines or restrictions provided by the rental company. At the end of the standard 7-day rental period, the rental company will pick up the dumpster.
