One thing to keep in mind is that if you plan on having the container placed on the street it may be necessary to get a permit from the city offices.
If you’re going to have the container located on your property it is definitely a good idea to not have it placed on any soft ground or grassy areas. As the canisters are quite heavy and can do significant damage if not properly supported.
Even if you are having the canister placed on your asphalt or concrete driveway it is a good idea to have some plywood available to place under the roll off containers wheels to help prevent any damage to your driveway.

A few questions you need to ask in addition to the standard price quote to make sure you get not only the best price but avoid any potential additional fees and penalties. And a few things you need to do to make sure that the site where the canister will be located is properly prepared to avoid doing any damage to your property.
