Consider this: a big truck with six wheels, on which is mounted a huge container with an open top. This container is used to carry anything from earth, to sand, to gravel, and even garbage. A hissing sound, and the container is lifted up in the air. Then a door opens and the load falls down, down, down to the ground. Another hiss, and the container is lowered. Yes, it’s what you think it is: a Roll Off Dumpster.
What is a roll off dumpster? What makes it remarkable? And how do I get to use one? These questions might have hit your head after you’ve read what’s said above. Well, for those of you who don’t know, a roll off dumpster is basically a truck with an open container used to carry any load and is used mostly at construction yards, where it is used to carry any load form one point to another. It’s very handy to use, particularly in transporting loads, because it’s built to do exactly that. A dumpster can haul any load placed in its container and offload these quickly by dumping them onto the ground, hence the name “dumpster”.
As to what makes dumpsters remarkable, it’s basically the roll off dumpster’s most distinct features that make it remarkable, that is, the open-top container that has a lot of space and the hydraulic pistons used to lift — or more accurately, tilt the container in the air. These are the most distinct (or most common) features of roll off dumpsters. Another feature that makes these dumpsters “remarkable” are the way their doors open. Usually, a truck’s container has two doors that open to the side. A dumpster, however, has a door that hinges upward, which works well for it, since the load it carries is dumped to the ground. This makes it easier to offload whatever load the container happens to be carrying at the moment.
Now, on to the question of owning a dumpster. Well, unless you own a lot of money, owning a roll off dumpster is really not a practical choice. A dumpster is commonly owned by corporations who really need it, such as construction firms or your local waste disposal authority. These are the ones whom you frequently see using a roll off dumpster. But if you still need (or at least fell like you do) to have a roll off dumpster, then all you have to do is buy one. We can name sites or companies that sell these type of trucks, but we would suggest that you use one from a rental company, particularly if your need is temporary and will not take a long time. Renting one from a rental company will not only save you time, it also helps you by providing you with people experienced in the use of roll off dumpsters, so you don’t have to learn how to operate one yourself (although the experience to learn how can be quite tempting). Rental companies also give you the option of choosing the size of the dumpster that you want to use (since a dumpster also comes in different sizes), ensuring that you use only what you need. Rental companies are also very accessible, with most of them offering services in different places throughout the globe, giving you have a lot of options, to help you decide which rental company you’ll take. This makes dumpster rentals a good choice for your dumpster needs.
