Differences Between a Flat Rate and a Variable Rate Dumpster Rental Price

When calling different roll-off dumpster rental companies, make sure to ask if the pricing is a flat or variable rate. This is important so you can stay within your project budget. The pricing you are paying could be quite different from the total amount of charges after everything is completed.

Our Flat Rate Pricing Breakdown for a Dumpster Rental

Our flat rate includes all the charges like delivery, pickup, rental period, weight capacity, and fuel surcharges. Because everything from rental days to the weight capacity limit is included, you can plan to maximize your junk removal, renovation, or any other project you must accomplish. This option typically results in a better experience for everyone. If you finish your project early, simply call us at 844-762-8449, and we will schedule to have your dumpster picked up.

A Variable Rate Pricing Breakdown for a Dumpster Rental

A variable-rate will have an individual charge associated with each category. Companies do this for a few reasons. First, it makes the dumpster rental seem like it is much cheaper. Secondly, their internal systems are setup to accept orders this way. Depending on the location, these additional charges can add up quickly and cost more than the dumpster rental itself.
As you can see above, the pricing is much different between a flat rate and a variable rate. With that said, make sure you understand why it is more expensive. For example, if you do not have much debris to dispose of, you might only need a 1-ton weight capacity. You also might only need the dumpster for 1 day. If this is the case, choosing the variable rate would cost you $346.18, which is less than the flat rate. As you can see, a variable rate is not always more expensive, but you are leaving much to chance. Weather delays and extra junk to dispose of are just a few ways that could throw your budget off quickly. You can get an estimate of weight by using our weight calculators. At Waste Removal USA, we pride ourselves on fully understanding each project first, then making our recommendations. Our goal is to make sure each of our customers can have a wonderful experience and stay within budget. Give us a call at 844-762-8449 and let’s work together to tackle your project.

The representative who helped me get set up for our dumpster provided a 5 star experience. Probably some of the best customer friendly service I've had in quite some time. I actually enjoyed booking a dumpster which is saying something. Well done Kirk.

I had a list of companies to call for quotes. Called Waste Removal USA, first on my list, and spoke to Tish. She was so professional and conveyed to me her total belief and trust in her company just by her presentation. I didn't even call another company! Having a dumpster delivered tomorrow.
