Here's How You Make Sure That Roll Off Dumpster Truck is 'Driveway Friendly’
Roll-off dumpster trucks (like the one below) are a common sight in many residential neighborhoods. We use them to transport large dumpsters to and from job sites.
Sometimes the “job site” is your home sweet home.
If you need to rent a roll-off dumpster truck for your home renovation project, it's important to ensure that it is safe to use in your driveway and will not cause damage to your property or your street.
Here are some tips to help you make sure your roll-off dumpster truck is safe to use:
Check the Roll Off Dumpster Truck Weight Limit
One of the most important things to consider when renting a roll-off dumpster truck is the weight limit. The weight of the dumpster, combined with the weight of the truck, can be a significant load, and you need to make sure your driveway and street can handle it. Before renting a roll-off dumpster truck, check with your local authorities to find out the weight limit for your street, and make sure the truck you rent is within that limit.
Protect Your Driveway
To prevent damage to your driveway, it's important to take steps to protect it before the roll-off dumpster trailer arrives. You may wan to place plywood sheets on your driveway where the dumpster will be placed. This will help distribute the weight of the dumpster more evenly and prevent damage to the surface of your driveway.
Clear the Area
Before the roll-off dumpster truck arrives, make sure the area where the dumpster will be placed is clear of any obstacles, such as tree branches or parked cars. This will make it easier for the truck driver to maneuver the truck into position and reduce the risk of damage to your property.
Ensure Proper Placement
When the roll-off dumpster truck arrives, make sure it is positioned properly. The dumpster should be placed as close to the street as possible, with the front of the dumpster facing the street. This will help distribute the weight of the dumpster more evenly and reduce the risk of damage to your driveway.
Communicate with the Rental Company
Finally, make sure you communicate with the roll-off dumpster rental company to ensure that they understand your specific needs and concerns. A reputable rental company will work with you to ensure that the dumpster is placed safely and that your property is protected from damage.

Southern Roll Off is an amazing company. We used them when we moved and now with our repairs to our house after a sewage flood. I cannot say enough about the personal care they have taken. We have had to extend the time we needed the dumpster and they always call first to see if we still need it. Very kind and understanding!!!!! I absolutely recommend their services.
We had an amazing experience with Mike and Southern Roll Off. Customer service was A++++, the delivery of the dumpster was exactly placed in the right spot. Mike went above and beyond to fulfill our last-minute request as well. Would highly recommend!!
I received a dumpster from Southern Roll-Off for my home construction job quickly. Due to some unforeseen circumstances, I needed to schedule the pick up a couple days later than originally scheduled. They understood and helped me out tremendously. I will recommend them to everyone from here on out.
