How are Dumpsters Delivered?

How are dumpsters delivered is a question we are often asked by our valued Indianapolis customers.  Believe it or not dumpsters can be delivered in a couple of different ways.  Some are trailered to the job site or home while the most popular way is using a truck to place a dumpster. 

As we all know however there are different size trucks and every dumpster company has their own fleet of vehicles they use to deliver their own particular dumpsters.

The majority of companies in the industry will use a larger truck to deliver a dumpster.  The larger trucks such as a Kenworth T-800, Mack C713, or Peterbilt 567 are set up as tri-axle trucks and allow for larger and heavier dumpsters.  These trucks are equipped to handle from 10-yard to 40-yard dumpsters in size and can hold over 12 tons of waste.  The larger trucks not only weigh a lot but also aren't as maneuverable as some of their smaller counterparts.

Other companies such as Bin There Dump That Indianapolis use smaller vehicles such as Ford or Dodge pick up trucks.  These smaller trucks allow the driver to get into tighter spots and weigh much less than the larger tri-axle kind.  The size of dumpster which can be delivered is smaller when utilizing the 550 style trucks.  Typically you will see dumpsters ranging in size from 4-yard, 10-yard, 15-yard and 20-yard units delivered using the smaller trucks. 

Although rare you may also see dumpsters delivered on trailers.  These dumpsters vary in size and often are delivered with a dually truck.

When choosing a dumpster company be sure to ask questions and see how each company delivers their products.  

Do you have the clearance on your property for a large truck or would a smaller one be better.  Do you need a large dumpster or will a smaller one work, check out our order delivery page to pick the perfect size bin.  These questions will determine how the dumpster will be delivered for your particular need.
