How to reduce costs when renting a 10- Yard roll-off container: Like other purchases, educated consumers get the best price. That’s also true when it comes to 10 yard dumpster rentals. To assist, consider these to educate yourself when shopping for the best dumpster rental prices:
Call at least two roll-off container rental companies for pricing. This will allow you to hear different options. You can sometimes negotiate for better dumpster rental prices by using one price as leverage against the other. (Not with us though, we know we have the best prices for our service 🙂 )
You can avoid additional charges by keeping heavy debris at a minimum and staying within the allowed tonnage the dumpster offers. Proper scheduling will also keep costs down by calling to have the dumpster removed before or on the scheduled date.
If you are unsure about which size dumpster you actually will need, it’s safer to go with the larger of the two. The difference in price is less than overage charges and needed a second dumpster rental. Learn more about Dumpster Rental Prices
How long is a typical 10-Yard dumpster rental period?: A 7 to 10-day rental period is pretty standard, although this can vary by dumpster rental company. Most companies will charge a fee for each day you have the container over the allowed time limit. So, be sure to ask how long you have the dumpster for.
Sometimes, you just need the dumpster longer than expected. Most companies will allow you to keep the 10 yard container longer by paying a “late fee,” which typically ranges from $25 to $50 per day. There may be a maximum number of days allowed as well. You can always have the dumpster picked up early to be on the safe side. Simply, give us a call and schedule the Early Pickup.
How to estimate your volume of waste?: People agree, trying to figure out what size container they need can be the most difficult issue when renting a dumpster. Luckily, we are here to assist.

Call a Guardian Dumpster Rental Specialist who can help you choose the best container size needed.
You can also estimate the amount of debris yourself by physically measuring it and converting it to cubic yards. One yard is 3 feet long. Dumpsters are measured in cubic yards. So, one cubic yard is measured at 3 feet wide, by 3 feet tall, by 3 feet deep. Due to the varying container dimensions, bulky or irregularly shaped items may consume quite a bit of volume in the container. It’s best you discuss this with your dumpster rental provider.
