If you’ve got a big project going, it’s probably time to find a roll-off container! Whether you’re starting a construction project that’s large or small, there’s a roll-off container to fit your needs. Roll-offs typically come in 10, 15, 20, 30, or 40 cubic feet. Despite their different sizes, they all have a weight limit of about 10 tons. The question is, “How do you know which size is right for you?”
The 10 cubic feet containers are great for cleaning out small basements, garages, and yards. They’re also nice for disposing old concrete and asphalt.
The 15 cubic feet containers work well if you’re doing a project to remove your decking, roofing, or siding.
20 cubic feet containers are best for small to mid-sized projects. This is likely the largest size you’d need for any home improvement project.
The 30 cubic feet roll-offs are needed if you’re doing large construction projects or remodels.
Lastly, the 40 cubic feet containers are best used for new home construction and commercial projects. They are usually the largest size roll-off you’ll find.
There are a few things to think about before you order your roll-off container:
1) Figure out which size is going to fit your project. There’s nothing worse than filling a container to the brim and realizing that the rest of the project has to be put on hold until the container’s emptied and ready for more!
2) Give the company you’re ordering from the COMPLETE site address to ensure a prompt delivery!
3) Also give them the phone number of a contact person at the drop-off location in case there are any issues or questions with the delivery.
4) Describe the exact place you’d like the roll-off container dropped off. (For example, in your driveway, around behind your garage, out front on the street, next to the building, etc.)
5) Set a date for the delivery, keeping in mind that some companies will automatically schedule a pick-up so many days after deliver for non-commercial clients. That means you’ll need to plan out your project unless you don’t mind paying to have the container longer.
6) You may need to be ready to pay over the phone with a credit card.
7) Want your roll-off container on the street? Check with your city to find out if you need to get a street permit.
While most companies will do their best to prevent any damage to your property when delivering and picking up your container, you should be aware that damage can occur. It’s common for companies to tell their residential customers that they will not accept responsibility for any damage done to driveways or yards while transporting your container.
Setting up a roll-off container for your big project is just an easy way to get things taken care of. Toss in your trash and forget about it! Set your focus on completing your project. Make the whole process easier on yourself and go with a roll-off!
