Very unlikely! Our delivery drivers are professionals and will safely place your roll-off rental in your driveway. You can provide wooden boards or plywood that can be placed on your driveway to protect it from scratches, cracks and other types of damage.

Yes. Call us and we can modify the rental duration and provide you with the new cost of rental.
How far in advance can I schedule a dumpster rental?
We recommend scheduling a dumpster drop-off 24- 48 hours in advance to ensure availability. Sometimes, we are able to deliver with less than 24 hours advance notice but to be sure you get your dumpster in time, schedule delivery 24- 48 hours in advance.
What if I want to move the roll-off to another location? Can I?
No, you can’t move the roll-off dumpster as it requires a special roll-off truck to do so.
How full can the dumpster be?
You can fill up the roll-off dumpster all the way to its top edge. This is to ensure that the roll-off can be safely hauled away.
