Demolition is dirty work, but someone has to do it! And on hand to help are a great many dumpster rental companies that will take away rubble until there is nothing left.
But what are the options, and what's best for you?
What type of demolition project are you working on? At a quick glance, this may look like a stupid question. However, to be able to get the right dumpster you'll need to be able to answer some simple questions about what type of demolition project this is. Is it a commercial building that is being demolished? A warehouse? A house? Block of flats? Different projects may need different, specialized types of dumpsters and disposal. They also come in differing sizes. Some materials can be recycled so will need separate disposal bins.
As part of this first consideration, it will also tell the dumpster rental company whether this is a residential or commercial demolition project. Charges and how they work with you will be different, so it's good to have this clear from the very beginning.
How long will the project take? Demolition projects are usually a fairly quick turnaround, but this does depend on the scale of the project and whether a team of people are working on it. If it's just one person taking a house apart to build something on the land, it may be a slow process.
Renting a dumpster is usually arranged in one of two ways. Either you are charged per day or charged on a longer term per removal charge. Charges per day will have a dedicated driver to constantly drive away the full dumpster when full and bring you another empty one, while the other way will be whoever is free on the scheduled day to take away the dumpster and replacement may not be as quick.
Is there anything inside the building that you need to dispose of as well as the building materials? Some items will be subject to additional fees for removal. Items such as white goods, mattresses, and appliances will have additional fees added on for removal. If cost is a key consideration in the demolition project, you may want to consider removing those yourself instead of throwing them into the dumpster. All of these options can be discussed with a dumpster rental company representative; they will help you choose the right tools for your job.
