PRO Hauling has you covered!

That’s OK. PRO Hauling is here for you every step of the way! Our experienced and knowledgeable staff will help you figure out everything you need when it comes to renting a dumpster.

Here are some key factors to consider when determining the size dumpster you will need for your project.

What kind of project are you doing?

The type of project you’re doing may impact what size dumpster you need. For example, if you’re doing a bathroom renovation you may not need as large a dumpster as you would if you’re emptying the contents of a house after a loved one has passed.

What will you be putting in the dumpster?

Volume matters. For example, if your project involves a lot of boxes, like for a move or a renovation, you can break those boxes down to be flat, so they take up less space in the dumpster. However, if you are discarding bulky items like furniture or cabinetry, those take up more space and may necessitate renting a larger dumpster.

As a reminder, there are many things that PRO Hauling does not accept due to regulations and safety concerns, such as household appliances, hazardous materials (automotive fluids, pesticides, pool chemicals, herbicides), electronics, flammable liquids, paint, air conditioners, car tires, and any item that contains gasoline, oil or R-22 refrigerant (commonly known as Freon).

How big is the place where you will have your dumpster set?

If you’re dealing with a tight space, you may need a smaller dumpster. We’ll help you figure that out.
Here’s where PRO Hauling offers a big advantage. Our dumpsters are designed to fit an average residential driveway, with higher volume within a smaller footprint. We also place protective wood boards under the dumpster to protect your driveway.
