Getting Price Quotes
Now that you’ve gathered all the information you’ll need to provide to receive price quotes its best to put together a list of reputable companies to contact. The simplest way to get the names of some reputable companies is to ask friends, neighbours, or any contractors you may know for a recommendation.
It is also quite easy to use the Internet to identify companies who have received positive reviews from past customers, and while online check their rating.
Once you have your list together you will need to call each company to get a price quote. In addition to providing them with the information you have organized and getting a price quote there are a few other questions you might want to ask.
Prices can be quoted in several different ways and you’re going to want to make sure you have a firm price quote, and understand any possible additional fees or penalties. While some companies quote prices based solely on the size of the canister others quote prices based on the size of the canister and have a weight limit. Be sure to ask each company if there is a weight limit on the price quoted and if so what are the additional fees if you were to go over that limit.
Also, when a company takes your canister to the landfill there will certainly be landfill charges. You should definitely ask if the price quoted includes landfill charges or are they an additional fee above and beyond the price quoted.
Beyond weight and landfill fees there is also the potential for additional costs in the form of penalties. Penalties are most often associated with disposing of prohibited materials in the canister, so it is always a good idea to ask each company for a list of prohibited items.
There may also be penalties if it becomes necessary for you to keep the canister for longer than the amount of time you have scheduled. So it’s always a good idea to ask each company ahead of time if there are additional costs for keeping the canister longer than scheduled.
Once you’ve gathered your list of potential rental companies and have received price quotes from each as well as understand the likelihood of additional fees and penalties for each company you will be in a position to make a much more informed decision.
