Roll Off Rental Containers in Marietta, GA

Roll Off Rental Containers in Marietta, GA

Roll off rental containers in Marietta, GA, though simple in design, are invaluable in terms of convenience and function.  A roll off dumpster is a large, open-top container that will haul construction material, household junk and other waste to local landfills or sorting facilities.  They are unsung heroes for keeping their charge contained until the job is completed.

Roll Off Rental Containers in Marietta, GA

Homes and businesses can take full advantage of roll-off dumpsters for cleaning out basements, attics, garages, yard-waste, DYI remodeling, roofing and siding materials and major construction projects.

With the click of a button or simple phone call, a roll off container service will deliver a dumpster to your home, place of business, or construction site. The container is rolled-off the back of the truck and placed in an accessible area.  When the clean-up is completed the container service will return, pick up the loaded dumpster and haul it off to the appropriate place.

Container sizes vary but standard measurements are:

  • 12 cubic yard container: 8 feet wide, 14 feet long and 3 feet tall
  • 15 cubic yard container: 8 feet wide, 14 feet long and 4 feet tall

A 12 cubic yard dumpster can hold the equivalent of 4 pick-up truck loads.   A 15 cubic yard dumpster can handle mid to large size construction projects or 2 to 3 tons.

Keep in mind that roll off container rental companies have a limited number of dumpsters on-hand, so it’s important to call at least a week in advance to ensure a container will be available when you need it.

Regardless of your needs; spring or fall cleaning, small remodeling project, building a patio or large commercial development, your job site will remain safer and cleaner with a roll-off container on hand to cater to the demand.  Thanks to roll-off containers, you will save time and effort and, perhaps, a good dose of sanity.

Revamp the Basement for the Kids

revampthebasementforthedisRevamp the Basement for the Kids

Revamp the basement for the kids to keep them busy and out of your hair this winter.  Cold weather outside can lead to too many hours inside.  One way to keep the whole family sane is to change your basement into a play area filled with fun and educational stations.

Sensory Table

If you have toddlers set up a sensory table to introduce them to a variety of hands on learning.  Sensory tables are great for building concentration and motor skills all while having fun and getting messy.

If the basement is carpeted place a washable play mat under the table or set the table inside of a baby pool to contain spills, dirt or sand.

Mini Kitchen

For children three and up create a mini kitchen.   This is another great learning opportunity for kids to work on imaginative play and practice motor skills.

Stock the kitchen with play food, utensils, pots and pans and watch your children become master chefs.

Dress Up

Dress up is another favorite way to stave off boredom.  I know two boys who loved their super hero costumes and not many girls who couldn’t resist their mom’s beads, long scarfs and handbags.  Decorate a small corner of the basement with a full-length mirror, wall hooks, a big box of accessories, a trunk of fun clothes and costumes (including old Halloween stuff) and watch your child’s imagination run wild.

Climbing Wall

When the kids are literally climbing the walls send them up the wall!   Here is an article on how to build a safe DYI climbing wall.  It’s not as complicated as you may think.  A few simple things like a gymnastics mat, plywood, and climbing holds will have your kids thinking they are Indiana Jones.

Gaming Center

Lastly, build a media – game night center.  This is a wonderful way to spend quality time together as a family.

Yard sales and Thrift Stores are great places to find a big comfy couch, an entertainment center with shelves, a monitor, a portable popcorn machine and table with four to six chairs.

Keep board games and playing cards on the shelves.  Designate a gaming night or just call an impromptu gaming day.

How to “Home Stage” for Today’s Market

How to “Home Stage” for Today’s Market

How to home stage for today’s market without breaking the bank.  Every homeowner’s #1 priority should be to make the property more alluring to prospective buyers.  In this article is a list of home staging tips to lure the prospective buyer and to help you get a fair market price.

How to “Home Stage” for Today’s Market

Neutral is better

Touching up paint, upgrading old appliances and fixtures and cleaning out closets, the basement and garage will definitely give you an edge in today’s competitive real estate market.  Though, be careful when choosing colors and styles.  Burgundy and dark counter tops may be a favorite of yours but maybe not for a potential buyer.  Keep colors, décor and designs as middle-of-the-road as possible.

Furniture options

Take in to account the size of rooms when placing furniture.  The furniture should “fit” the room.  If the room is small, stick to smaller sized couches and chairs.  If the room is spacious, over-sized furniture will give it that cozy feel without looking cluttered.  Find the balance.

Know the target audience

Real estate is not a general market.  Educate yourself on the target audience that is buying in your demography.

For example, if young professionals or millennia are shopping the area, remodel in a more contemporary style.  But if the target audience leans toward the elderly, upgrades should be subdued, landscaping easily maintainable with easy access to entrance doors.

Set a reasonable asking price

Don’t make the mistake of listing your home too high on the market.  Do a comparable market analysis to find out what the average price is for the area to ensure the property will appeal to the widest range of buyers.

Even if the house looks awesome, overpriced property can make it considerably harder for prospective buyers to make an offer.

Don’t overspend on renovations

In this market, investing in expensive renovations will no longer get the return it once did.   Perspective buyers aren’t going to look at the upgrades, they are going to look at the bottom line of the house compared to others in the neighborhood.

Invest in things such as light fixtures, cabinet drawer pulls and a new alarm system.  Touch up paint throughout the house and de-clutter closets, the garage, attic and basement.

To make the de-cluttering aspect cost efficient call R & R Containers.  They can deliver the right sized roll-off container to your front door.

The above tips will help you get the most from your staging efforts, and R & R Container can help you get the most from your clean up.  Call today to order your container in Marietta, GA and the surrounding areas 770-975-9554

De-clutter Before the Holidays with a Roll Off Container

De-clutter Before the Holidays with a Roll Off Container

De-clutter before the holidays with a Roll Off Container so that there is more room for guests and new items.  It’s that wonderful time of year again.   The time to unwrap the Santa figurines, untangle the Christmas lights and hang up the mistletoe.   This is also the perfect time to toss unwanted toys, old clothing, broken items and appliances that have been on the “fix it” list forever.  Clean up, clean out and discard should be the new holiday jingle.

Tips to De-clutter Before the Holidays with a Roll Off Container

One assured way to have this happen is to stack the Christmas decorations in the back of a closet, garage, basement or attic.  To reach them, the family has to dig through all the “stuff” that’s been dumped there in the last twelve months.  Call it “Seasons Cleanings and a Tidy New Year”.

Systematically, go through the house and place all the unwanted items earmarked for the trash in a pile.  But before you start hauling it all to the curb consider a few things.   A lot of neighborhoods have joint efforts for decorating and no one is going to appreciate a mountain of furniture, appliances and old toys on the roadside.  Most trash services won’t pick up furniture or appliance.  You can’t leave the pile in the middle of your living room.   So, what is the best option?

Call and have a roll off container delivered right to the front door. This makes the cleaning out process simpler and easier to accomplish.

Now, haul all the unwanted items to the container and in they go.  No fuss, no muss and it’s actually more economical than doing it yourself.  When you factor in time, fuel, and transfer station fees, hiring a roll off container is the most economical way to go.

Just think how impressed your in-laws will be when they see a neat and tidy basement, garage and closets.  Family and friends will applaud your efforts and probably want to know what your secret is to keeping your home from overflowing with stuff.

Tell them to follow this one simple rule. If you haven’t used or needed it in twelve months, get rid of it. Odds are it won’t be missed in the next twelve months but of course, by then it will be time to start the “Seasons Cleanings and a Tidy New Year” all over again.

Home Improvement Projects for Maximizing Resale Value and Roll Off Container Rentals

If you’re planning on selling your home, then you probably want to do everything you can to get top dollar. Oftentimes people selling their home will take on home improvement projects in an attempt to add resale value. However, if things go wrong or the homeowners choose the wrong things to sink their cash into, they can end up shelling out more than the improvements will add in value. So, what are the best home improvement projects to take on for your home’s resale value? Let’s take a look below. Of course, a great way to save money on many home improvement projects is with a roll off container rental from R&R Containers.

Best DIY Projects for ROI – and how a roll off container rental can help

  • Remodels – when many people think of value adding upgrades, they think of remodels. And it’s true that a kitchen or bath remodel can, in some cases, end up turning a profit. However, it’s easy to get too deep into these projects, and then they end up costing more than their worth, so keep an eye on the budget if you’re going to take one on. Of course, a roll off container rental is a great, cost effective way to get rid of the waste from your remodel.

  • Energy saving upgrades – while it might not be as flashy as a remodel, buyers are placing more and more emphasis on energy saving upgrades. Jobs like adding insulation to the attic or installing a smart thermostat don’t cost much compared to a remodel, and they can be very attractive to environmentally and budget minded buyers.
  • Boost curb appeal – there’s a reason why real estate agents put so much emphasis on curb appeal – there’s no second chance to make a first impression. While many jobs, like landscaping, might be more easily done in spring, there’s plenty of favorable winter weather here in the south to squeeze some projects in. A roll off container rental will prevent you from having to make trip after trip to the dump in the freezing cold!

Roll off container rental for commercial job sites

R&R Containers has been locally owned and operated in Acworth since 1999. We understand what it takes to be a small business owner in central Georgia, and we’re here to help you succeed. Commercial customers have a little bit different set of concerns than residential ones when it comes to roll off container rental. Since commercial operations are typically ongoing, it’s all about efficiency.

Buy local, save money

Buying local makes a big difference when it comes to dumpster rental. Most of the cost in refuse hauling is in the fuel it takes to haul the big, heavy containers. At R&R Containers, we keep our service area small, and we pass the savings in fuel costs on to our customers. Another way to make sure you’re getting the best price on your dumpster rental is to contract with the same people who will be delivering your dumpster. Many companies that claim to be dumpster rental companies are actually just agents. They contract with someone else to haul the container, and they add a middleman’s fee to the price the customer pays. Not at R&R Containers.

Save time, save money

Another important factor for commercial customers in particular is dumpster placement. When we drop off a container at a residence, there usually aren’t many choices on where we can put it. On larger, commercial job sites; however, location can make a big difference. If your employees have to carry debris a long way, you’re wasting man hours and increasing the likelihood of a workplace injury. At R&R, we strive to locate your container as close to the cleanup as possible so you can maximize your ROI.
