What is a roll-off dumpster?

A dumpster is a great way to dispose of large quantities of trash, demolition materials, and home cleanout items.

Will the dumpster damage my property?

We take every precaution to prevent causing any damage. We use lighter, driveway-friendly trucks, and we place pads underneath the dumpster rollers when placed on asphalt or concrete. Same Day Dumpster Rental Norfolk is not responsible for any damage caused by the regular operation of dumpster delivery or pickup.

Why would I need to rent a dumpster?

There are many situations in which you may need a dumpster rental. A few are:

  • Construction job sites
  • Preparing to Sell a Home
  • Residential Remodeling
  • Landscaping Projects
  • Home Clean-out
  • Kitchen/Bathroom Remodel

What is the dumpster rental process?

The dumpster rental process is actually pretty simple. First, you call the dumpster rental company and let them know where and when you would like your dumpster delivered. The driver then delivers the dumpster on the date you ordered. You then fill the dumpster with debris and other items from your location, home, or job site. When you are finished with your dumpster, call the office to let them know you are ready for the dumpster to be removed.

What size dumpster do I need?

This is the most common question we receive. It is often hard to predict just how big a dumpster you need, especially when a small job ends up turning into a rather large one. Here at Same Day Dumpster Rental Norfolk, we offer a variety of dumpster sizes to accommodate jobs small and large. Head over to our dumpster selector guide to view all of our dumpster sizes. Still unsure what size is best for you? Give us a call, and one of our representatives will be happy to discuss your options with you.

What can I put in the dumpster?

All types of items can go inside dumpsters. Roofing and construction companies use dumpsters for roofing shingles and other construction debris. Renting a dumpster for yard waste is common in the spring and fall. Dumpster rentals for home renovations that require disposing of drywall, tile, and other debris are also frequent. Most household junk can also go inside your dumpster. Items you are not allowed to put in the dumpster include batteries, adhesives, oil, paint, tires, and anything that might be flammable or explosive.

How much does a dumpster cost?

The cost of a dumpster depends on a number of factors, including the dumpster’s size, the weight of the debris, the rental period’s duration, and any applicable taxes and fees. This implies that the exact cost of a dumpster varies based on location and the particulars of your order. We offer simple, flat-rate pricing on all of our dumpster sizes, so you’ll always know the full price up front. Also, keep in mind that each dumpster has a weight limit. These limits allow for a lot of weight, but if you go over the limit, there is an extra charge.

How high can I fill the dumpster?

Debris should not be filled higher than the top of the dumpster. Overfilling a dumpster can become a safety hazard during transport.

On delivery and pickup days, just make sure the area where you want the dumpster placed is clear and not blocked by cars or anything else that may prevent us from accessing the spot. Please also be sure the dumpster is loaded properly, with nothing sticking up over the top or hanging over the sides.

What can’t be placed in my dumpster?

No hazardous materials, which include tires, oil, gas, or flammable solvents.

Will my dumpster have a door?

What is a dumpster that rolls off?

Roll-off dumpsters are different from regular dumpsters, and they are often used for home improvement or construction projects. Roll-off dumpsters are rectangular and have open tops instead of lids. They come in different sizes. Most dumpsters are 15, 20, 30, or 40 cubic yards in size.

What would I use a dumpster for?

Whether you’re doing some cleaning around the house or a big renovation, renting a dumpster can help you get the job done faster and better. When you rent a dumpster, you also have more freedom to do the job at your own pace and on your own timetable. When you rent a dumpster, you are also responsible for the costs. Once your dumpster is picked up, it is the company’s job to make sure your trash is thrown away in a legal and responsible way.

What if the dumpster causes someone harm?

Getting a dumpster is at your own risk. Please understand that the dumpsters and trucks are very heavy, so it is possible they could cause damage to where you are putting them. We put wood under the can when it was placed on the driveway. This almost always protects the driveway, but we do not take responsibility for any damage.

Should I lay down plywood?

We don’t require you to lay down plywood or other materials where you want the dumpster placed. However, we do recommend it to help protect the surface from any scratches or scrapes.

Who do I call to pick up my dumpster?

When you’re ready for pickup, simply call us at (757) 780-1406 or schedule your pickup online.

How should I load my dumpster?

When loading a dumpster, make sure all of the trash goes inside. Don’t let anything hang over the sides of the dumpster or poke through the top. This could make your junk pickup late because drivers can’t take dumpsters that are too heavy.

Can I order additional dumpsters?

If your dumpster gets full before your project is done, you can call our office to schedule a service to empty it and bring it back. You can also order more dumpsters if the size and scope of your project change.

How often will my trash be picked up?

We pick them up once a week, every two weeks, or once a month. When you set up your rental, you can choose the best choice for your needs. If something changes during the time of your contract, all you have to do is call our office to change the time of your pickups.

What contract lengths do you offer?

When you rent a front-loading dumpster from us, we can work with you on the terms. This keeps you from being stuck in a typical 3- to 5-year contract.

Are there any extra features I can get?

You can order a lock bar for your front-loading dumpster to keep other people from using it. Both 2- and 4-yard dumpsters can be ordered with wheels to make them easier to move. Both of these features cost money, which will be spelled out in your contract and added as a line item to your monthly bill.

What size dumpster do I need?

Obviously, the size of the dumpster you’re going to need will depend on the size of your project. We offer 10, 15, 20, and 30-yard dumpsters. Recommendations are available on our website, or you can call our office and one of our friendly and experienced customer service representatives will be happy to help you reach a decision.
