When Should You Rent a Dump Trailer?

If you're thinking about renting a dump trailer for an upcoming project but aren't sure if it's the best choice for you, there are numerous considerations to keep in mind. A dump trailer rental may be a viable option if any of the following situations apply to you.

Material Delivery Would Cost More Than Renting

Sometimes, the cost of getting your building materials delivered to your job site far exceeds the cost of renting equipment and transporting it yourself. In these cases, renting a dump trailer is the more cost-effective choice. When renting these machines, you can choose your own rental terms, enabling you to use them for as little or long as you need.

You Have a Large Load to Deposit

Unpacking a heavy load by hand takes extensive time and energy to accomplish, even with a construction team assisting you. If you're about to tackle a job that requires a large load, you'll benefit from a dump trailer. This equipment makes unloading easy, instantly dumping materials with the push of a button. 

You'll Be Hauling Across Long Distances

Dump trailers have excellent mobility, enabling workers to move them practically anywhere on a construction site. That's why renting these machines is a logical option for projects that take place on larger job sites where operators will be hauling materials across long distances. With a dump trailer rental in your fleet, you can move loads from location to location seamlessly.

You Need to Minimize Property Damage

Because dump trailers have rubber wheels, they're able to move across properties without inflicting damage to the ground below, making them a better choice than stationary objects like heavy steel containers that can be rough on dirt and soil. They also promote a more cushioned load on materials like gravel and asphalt, minimizing damage to spaces like parking lots and driveways.

You're Undertaking a Small-Scale Job

If you're about to handle a smaller-scale project, dump trailer rentals can help you transport materials to the dump in just one load. These rental machines are particularly useful for small jobs at residential addresses.

How Much Does It Cost to Rent a Dump Trailer?

There's no universal cost for renting a dump trailer — all companies charge different rates, and prices usually depend on size, weight capacity and type. Generally, dump trailers cost between $60 and $150 a day, whereas purchasing one could range from $3,000 to $15,000 or more depending on the model. 

How Do You Rent a Dump Trailer?

Renting a dump trailer is easy. All you have to do is consult with a trusted heavy equipment dealer, choose the machine you'd like to rent and determine how long you plan to use the equipment. Then, you can either pick up the trailer yourself or have the rental company deliver it to you.
