Our associates at Houston Dumpster Rentals understands how challenging it can be to determine the exact size dumpster to rent. Choosing the right length, width, and height can be tough. Dumpster sizes are not the same because different things need to be hauled away. When you are embarking on a project, time is important and you don’t want to waste it. You will not have to if you make sure that you have the right one from the very beginning. At least knowing the basics will give you some idea of the size dumpster that might be ideal for you.
Dumpsters By Cubic Yard
Our dumpster sizes are measured by cubic yard; it is a measure of volume. The dumpster dimensions are often given in feet and measured from the exterior of the container.
Here are the cubic yards that are offered and what is typically hauled in them.
Always Double Check Dimensions
If you’re having the dumpster that you have selected delivered to a small area on your property you will certainly want to make sure that the space can accommodate it. The width isn’t usually a problem; it is usually the length of the container that becomes a problem when the space is incorrectly measured. It usually increases when you have a 10-yard container to a larger container. Just remember that a dumpster is generally 8 ft. wide and swing open toward the back. If you are going to load through the door and not the top then give yourself an additional 8 feet to swing the door open. If you don’t heed this advice, you could wind up with a dumpster that won’t be of much use to you.
