What Do Our Customers Think?
The whole process was surprisingly easy, never ordered a dumpster before, customer service was excellent and helpful. The drivers must be very skilled, I don’t know how they backed the dumpster between two houses down a very narrow driveway, but they did.
Everything went well...except...
Everything went well...except there's no way of knowing if you're over the weight limit. Which means you can get a crazy additional bill after your initial payment.
It was easy to order the dumpster and they brought it on time. They took care to not and dig up my driveway. They put wooden planks down to set it on. It was easy to order the pick up time/day. You didn’t have to be home for them to pick it up either. I would definitely use dumpsters.com again if I ever needed another dumpster.
