10 Reasons to Rent a Dumpster For Your Home

You may not realize it, but you need to rent a dumpster soon. There are often events that come up you hadn’t planned on that require you to get rid of a lot. Or maybe it is something planned, but you hadn’t given thought to how to solve the problem of getting rid of the junk involved with it.

Here are 10 reasons you might want to consider renting a dumpster in order to make your life easier.

  1. You Don’t Need A Lot of Space For a Dumpster

This may seem a strange reason to start out with why you need a dumpster, but many people might think it’s not even an option for them.

10 benefits of renting a dumpster
A variety of dumpster size options

Some people assume that a dumpster has to be this oversized metal container that takes up a lot of space, can damage your property, and is bigger than you need. This is far from the case.

Most dumpster companies have a variety of sizes available, so when you talk over with them what you have to dispose of, they can provide you with something big enough. And that will fit into your available space.

When talking with the company, also discuss how they’ll drop off the dumpster. For example, Nova Dumpster uses a hook and haul system.  This allows us to place your dumpster in even tight quarters sometimes, without the potential to damage the property you have with other systems.

2. You Have a Special Event Coming Up

Will everyone in your family be coming to your home for Christmas? Will you be hosting your child’s graduation party in your home? Whatever the occasion it can be a little stressful getting your place ready for a special event.

No matter if it’s a dozen in-laws or 100 guests you want to make sure you have the space for them. Often this means clearing out rooms. With a dumpster you can clear out any broken or unused items to clear out room. Even places they don’t visit, such as the attic or basement should be emptied out a little if possible. This way you can store items from other rooms temporarily to get more room.

3. You Have A Baby on the Way

Maybe you don’t have a lot of guest coming, but instead one tiny addition to the family. Still, that infant will have a lot of belongings and they’ll need their own room at some point.

You also want to start baby proofing the home. Old broken items can be tucked away in the attic, but then you’ll just have to get rid of them later. And if you’re clearing out a room for you newborn, you might need space in the attic or basement that you do want to keep.

4. You Have An Estate To Clean Out

Has a family member passed away and now you’re responsible for selling their property? Or getting it ready for another family member to move into?

A dumpster rental helps make the process smoother, in what can be an emotionally charged time. While many of the belongings may be sold in an auction or given away, there is always going to be a lot of things that have no value. Clear this out then go through the rest of the items to decide who they will go to or what can be sold.

5. Your moving

This is the perfect time to rent a dumpster. As you pack up belongings you’ll also come across a lot of items you no longer use or that don’t work. Some you might be able to donate, but a lot might not have any use for anyone. Every trip to the dumpster is one less item to pack up and ship.

You might want to rent a dumpster even before you’ve sold your home. In fact, even before you list it. You want your home to seem roomy to potential buyers so clear out anything unusable to free up space.

6. Your cleaning up after a storm

Yesterday you hadn’t even thought about renting a dumpster. Then last night a storm blew through and left you with a lot of debris to clear from your property. You could hire others to take care of it, but if the storm was severe enough, you might find yourself on a waiting list.

Cleaning up after a storm can be time consuming, but a dumpster rental will help speed up the process. Instead of bagging everything up or tying it up with string, you simply toss everything in the dumpster. In no time you’ll have your property looking as good as new.

This might even be something you can have your insurance take care of paying, if you’ve put in a claim.

7. You Don’t Have a Way To Get Rid of Junk Yourself

Do you have a lot of junk, but the car you drive hasn’t much space? Or maybe you’re concerned about damage to the interior while hauling jagged or dirty objects. No need to mess up your vehicle when a dumpster can be dropped off and then taken away by others after you filled it up.

8. Your Doing a Home Remodeling Project

Redoing a room yourself is a great way to save money and add value to your home. Whether you’re updating kitchen cabinets or installing a new bathroom, a remodeling project can be messy and leave you with a lot of debris. Debris you don’t just want to pile up in another room or on the lawn.

With a dumpster you haul everything out as you remove it. This way you’ll have the room to work, but not a big mess to clean up later.

9. Spring Cleaning Projects Are Easier

For some it might be that spring cleaning is an annual activity. Or maybe its something you do in the fall. Or maybe you’re finally getting around to it on your to do list. Whatever the reason for cleaning your home thoroughly a dumpster makes the work go smoother.

With your dumpster you might find you still have room when you’re done. Then why not get rid of those old appliances that don’t work but take up space. It’s a good way to get a number of items crossed off your to do list.

10. Cleaning Up Your Neighborhood

Does your neighborhood have a get together to clean up your block. Then pool some money together and rent a dumpster. The volunteers, no matter their age, can simply carry things over to the dumpster and toss them in. With the work done sooner, than maybe everyone can get together to socialize.
