Can I get a discount if I only need it for a day?
Generally, no. Whether you need a temporary dumpster for one day, three days, or seven days typically doesn’t impact the price of the rental. A majority of dumpster rental services automatically include a standard rental length of “up to a week” at the same cost.
Why aren’t discounts generally available for a one day rental?
The cost to the dumpster service of delivering the dumpster, picking it up, and dumping it are the same regardless of whether the dumpster is rented for a single day or several days.
Do any dumpster companies offer a price reduction for very short term rentals?
Some companies may negotiate a slightly lower rate for a very short rental period, like one to three days, especially during very busy times. If a company is experiencing a high volume of business and their inventory is low, they may be more motivated to provide a discounted price for a fast return of the dumpster. Likewise, smaller dumpster companies with smaller fleets might also be more inclined to offer a better rate for the ability to get the dumpster back and rented out again more quickly. Companies that have a large inventory of dumpsters in their yard ready to rent typically are not motivated to provide a discount for a short-term rental.
