As a contractor or subcontractor, you must have thought about outsourcing. After a construction project, the last thing you want to do is clean debris from a site.
Even though many site supervisors and general contractors rely on their own crew to remove junk and waste from the site, you’re far better off outsourcing debris removal.
Time and money spent disposing of construction waste doesn't generate revenue for your construction firm – and it can be a safety hazard. Professional junk removal companies will provide a more thorough service for a fraction of the price. Here's what to look out for when outsourcing debris removal services for your construction projects:
Hire a company with your values
When you hire an outsourcing company, you are essentially choosing a partner for your business. Whether you need their services for one project or as a long-term partner, make sure that the company you outsource to works in harmony with your business. Are eco-friendly practices important to you? Then hire a debris removal company that will not only correctly dispose of waste, but also recycle as much material as possible.
Check reviews and experience
If you want to know if a company is right for you, find out what other customers are saying. If you see a common negative thread, it might be best to stay away. However, you shouldn’t put all your trust in reviews, this is just to get a general idea. If you are entering into a long-term contract, we advise meeting with the company and getting to know them prior to working with them. This will ensure that the debris removal company you select is a good fit for you.
How much will this cost you? Pricing is an important factor to consider when outsourcing debris removal. Review the company’s pricing structure and compare it with the prices offered by other service providers. While considering the price is important, it should not be the only deciding factor. Even if you find the best available price, it won’t be worth it if the company isn’t very reliable and efficient. Make sure you weigh all your options before making a decision. Some companies, like Junk King, provide a free on-site estimate – and if you are happy with the price, they’ll remove your junk right away.
Make sure the company is insured
Working with an insured company will give you peace of mind. Should any accidents happen during clean-up or any theft occur while the service is there, a bonded and insured service will take responsibility. If you choose a service that doesn't have insurance, the responsibility will be yours. You and your staff will feel safer knowing that you’re working with a reliable company that takes every necessary precaution.
Make sure the company covers everything
To ensure that you get the most bang for your buck, make sure the debris removalcompany you hire covers every aspect of debris hauling. This includes cleaning up the site, filling up the truck, driving to the landfill, dumping the debris appropriately and according to standard, and making sure the necessary items are reused and recycled.
