How to Prepare for a Rental Dumpster Delivery
What to Do to Get Ready for Junk Removal Services in South Kansas City
So you’re about to do a DIY home renovation or declutter your house! Any time is the perfect time for these projects. If you live in south Kansas City, Grandview, Belton, Olathe, Overland Park, or Leawood, your work can be made much easier by renting a residential dumpster.
Your own residential dumpster rental, parked in your driveway or other solid surface, allows you to dispose of construction materials and debris, plus all the junk you’ve accumulated over the years as you remove items that don’t spark joy in your home or prepare to sell.
Small Haul Containers, a family-owned company based in Stilwell, Kansas, can help you with your junk removal by delivering an empty dumpster direct to you and then picking it up once you’ve filled it with all the things you want to get rid of. Here’s how you can prepare to rent a residential dumpster near south Kansas City.
Step One. Determine When You’ll Work
Consider the size and scope of your DIY remodeling or clean-out project. When will you have time to sort through your belongings or demolish your kitchen or bathroom? How long will these processes take?
By choosing a period of at least seven days to dispose of debris and garbage, you will be able to select your delivery and pick-up dates when you request a dumpster rental from us. If you aren’t sure about when you can work on your home project, you’ll want to sit down and take a look at your schedule before reserving a residential dumpster.
Step Two. Determine the Size of Dumpster Rental You Will Need
The size of your project will dictate the dumpster size you will need. Small Haul Containers offers dumpster rentals in five sizes, the smallest of which is six cubic yards, and the largest of which is 20 cubic yards. Here are our recommendations for selecting a dumpster size.
This dumpster will fit the equivalent of six standard washing machines — one per cubic yard. This size is ideal for small kitchen demolition, small garage or basement clean-out, remodeling up to two bathrooms, demolition of a small deck, or fencing material and yard clean-up. It holds up to one ton of waste.
Our ten cubic yard model can hold the equivalent of ten standard washing machines — you see where we’re going with this, right? This dumpster size is perfect for an average-sized kitchen demolition, a medium garage or basement clean-out, a small kitchen and bath tear-out, medium-sized deck demolition, and 20-square feet of roofing materials plus extra junk. It holds up to one ton of waste.
Our most popular size,this dumpster size will accommodate a large kitchen demolition, a large basement or garage clean-out, large deck demolition, and multiple simultaneous home improvement projects. It holds up to two tons of waste.
Like our thirteen cubic yard dumpster, this larger size is perfect for larger clean-outs, big kitchen renovations, multiple simultaneous house projects, large deck demolition, and flood or fire restoration work. It holds up to two tons of waste.
If you’re doing a major renovation project, the grand-daddy of residential dumpsters is right for you. Our twenty cubic yard dumpster is capable of holding materials from multiple home improvement projects, multiple room demolitions, windows and door glass, and room additions, among other big projects. Its two-ton capacity will hold plenty of construction waste as you complete your DIY projects.
