There are some things to be aware of when receiving your dumpster and while using it. Here are some best practices that will help your roll-off dumpster rental go smoothly.

Check for Obstructions

Make sure the San Jose home or business site your dumpster will be delivered to has nothing that could interfere with the delivery. Be sure there are no low hanging limbs or cable, phone, or power lines that can keep the delivery truck from delivering the roll-off dumpster. If there are too many obstructions, consider negotiating with a neighbor or adjacent business to place the dumpster on their property.

Can the Location Handle the Weight of the Delivery Truck and Roll-Off Dumpster?

If you have an asphalt driveway or parking lot that is beginning to crumble, the weight of the truck and dumpster may cause more damage to the asphalt. Some gravel driveways are very loose and can cause heavier vehicles to slide if on an incline; this may cause the vehicle to dig in trying to get traction and compound the issue. If your gravel driveway is on a slope, consider an alternate delivery point for the dumpster.
