Planning Your Big Summer Home Project? Don’t Forget to Rent a Dumpster
Rent a Dumpster This Summer
Many families living near South Kansas City are likely to plan a big home project for the summer. The sunny weather makes for a great time to work on the house, whether it’s an exterior project or an interior remodel. No matter what big summer home project you’re planning, if it involves throwing away building materials or furnishings, you’ll need to rent a dumpster.
If you don’t choose to rent a dumpster, you have to do extensive research on how to throw away leftover project materials or waste. Then, you have to actually haul it away yourself. Dumpster rental makes it much easier and takes the heavy lifting off your shoulders.
Dumpster Rental Can Help With These Home Projects
1. Roof Replacement
Did you find out over the winter or rainy spring season that your roof might not be as watertight as you thought? If it’s time for a new roof, you have to be prepared for all the old shingles that you’ll have to take off your home. You can’t throw away hundreds of pounds of asphalt shingles and other construction waste in your residential trash. You can, however, rent a dumpster to park in your driveway to hold all the old roofing materials while you finish your project.
2. Deck Replacement
If your building materials are made of wood, chances are it will eventually rot or become less structurally stable than it was when it was brand new. Tall decks on homes in Olathe, Overland Park, and Stilwell go through a lot of wear and tear in wet weather and during outdoor occasions, like family barbeques. Disassembling and discarding an entire deck is a lot of work. Did you know that a container rental service like Small Haul Containers can haul away your old deck for you? Simply take it apart and place it in our convenient walk-in dumpsters.
3. Whole-Home Flooring
Your flooring might have had a rough winter, with your family walking around the house with dirty snow, slush, and ice-melt all over their boots. Or, maybe you’ve purchased a fixer-upper with a lot of potential in South Kansas City or Grandview and need to remove the carpet to reveal the gorgeous hardwoods underneath. Unfortunately, removing old, heavy carpet is cumbersome, and the pieces you have to remove from your house take up a lot of space. You’ll need to rent a dumpster to have the old flooring hauled away.
If your hedges are growing wild, your lawn is overgrown with brush, or you’re simply looking to remove all your old landscaping to update your home’s curb appeal, you can rent a dumpster for your yard waste. You will need to separate your yard waste into its own rental dumpster, but Small Haul Containers will happily haul it away for you.
5. Kitchen or Bathroom Remodels
Updated kitchens and bathrooms give you the most return-on-investment of any other home project when it’s time to sell. They also create a lot of waste that needs somewhere to go while you work on your project. A dumpster rental service can give you what you need to keep your work areas clean by containing the unwanted debris on your property.
Although we’ve only listed five projects here, a dumpster rental can help you with basically any home project you can think of this summer. If you can plan the project, you can probably rent a dumpster to help you with it.
How to Rent a Dumpster
The process to rent a dumpster is actually very easy, and there’s no reason for it to make you feel intimidated. If you need assistance, our professionals at Small Haul Containers in Stilwell can help guide you to the right size and timeline for your home project.
For example, if you’re preparing for a home project in Louisburg, you can go online to www.smallhaulkc.com to instantly rent a dumpster with upfront pricing and home delivery. Start by choosing when you’ll need the dumpster to be delivered and how many days you’ll need it. If you forgot to plan ahead, you can usually get same-day delivery. However, it’s best to mark your calendar to remind yourself to rent a dumpster in advance.
Next, select the dumpster size appropriate for your project. Our dumpster rentals come in various sizes, starting at six cubic yards, which is about the size of six washing machines. The largest size is 20 cubic yards, which is about the size of—you guessed it—20 washing machines. The Small Haul Containers website provides you with more context into the best size for your needs by listing out sample projects next to each size option.
Once you’ve picked your rental dates and size, complete your reservation. Small Haul Containers will deliver your dumpster rental straight to your home, as long as you have the equivalent of one parking space to place it on. We’ll even lay down protective materials underneath your dumpster to keep your driveway in good condition.
When your project is finished and your dumpster rental is over, Small Haul Containers will pick up your filled dumpster and take it away.
How Can I Tell if the Dumpster Rental Near Me Is Trustworthy?
It can be scary to hire a company you’ve never worked with before, especially one that will be responsible for putting a heavy dumpster on your driveway and then picking it up at the end of your project.
When you’re hiring a dumpster rental company, look for the following:
- They give an upfront pricing guarantee. This means there is a flat-rate for dumpster rentals based on size and length of the rental.
- Their containers are driveway-safe. Their rental containers won’t damage your driveway or other hard surfaces they’re placed on because the company, like Small Haul Containers, places a special protective barrier underneath.
- They offer easy-access dumpsters that fit in a single parking space. This type of dumpster has large barn-style doors that open so you can walk into the container when filling it. You don’t have to throw heavy items over your head to get them into the dumpster. Dumpsters with a smaller footprint can also fit on your driveway or other surfaces without inconveniencing you for the duration of your dumpster rental.
- They pride themselves on customer service. A good dumpster rental company cares about you. They should be friendly and responsive, and their equipment should be well-maintained, too.
Small Haul Containers, which serves Johnson County and southern Jackson County, checks all these boxes, and we’d be happy to help you with your big summer home project.
