Hey guys and gals,

I am curious to hear some different ways of covering dump fees when doing a remodel. Do you estimate how much it is going to cost you to dump the materials and put it in the bid? Do you put in the contract that the owner will cover the bill without knowing what it will be? Would it be worth investing in a dump trailer to save money over they years? Any comments would be appreciated!

If you work in an area where 'dumpster theft' is a problem,then your idea of a dump trailer is still something to consider. Your trash cost should bill at a higher rate due to your double handling of the trash-drive time -flat tires-

Owning a dump trailer is a license to print money. Every time I dump it, I make money.

I can dump cheapervthan a box and it's on my schedule and it's way gentler on the property.

Cost is built into the contract.

it's also convenient for smaller jobs leaving the trailer at the shop and unloading the cans/debris from the truck into the trialer then taking it after things fill up.

I order "Lugger Boxes" for most jobs.
They don't roll off, and I can set
them off on plywood or cribbing
and do no damage to a lawn,
or a brand new asphalt drive in summer. :thumbsup:
