If you have never experienced a roll-off dumpster delivery before, you may not know exactly what to expect. Here at Guaranteed Services, we want to make the process as easy as possible. One of the most important things you can do to make the whole process easier is to prepare for your delivery.

When you call us, we will discuss the size of your roll-off dumpster, the delivery time that is best for you and what you plan to place in the bin. We will provide you with a quote and discuss placement options. Generally, roll-off dumpster delivery is easiest on flat, hard surfaces, like a paved (concrete or asphalt) driveway, parking lot or street. If you are going to place a dumpster in the street, you may need a permit before delivery. Hard-packed earth can also be an option, but if your property is on a steep hill or has soft or sandy surfaces, it may be more of a challenge to find an appropriate spot.

Here are some other things to consider as you prepare for your roll-off dumpster delivery:

  • It is a good idea to go ahead and prepare the site by moving cars or other objects. Look for hanging obstacles like wires and tree branches as well.
  • Talk to any neighbours who may be affected by the delivery, just so they are aware.
  • Double check your site on delivery day and plan on being present to make sure your bin ends up in the right spot.
