Size Up Your Project for your Roll-off Container in Acworth
When choosing a residential roll-off container in Acworth, your first thoughts should be about size. Containers can be rented in different sizes, and the one you opt for can make a huge difference to your project and wallet. If you’re a first-time roll-off container renter, take a quick look at these useful tips.
Knowing what the size of the container means.
The two most popular container rental sizes are 12 and 15 cubic yards. Don’t expect these containers to be that long or wide. Cubic yards is a measure of volume. A cube of space that is 3 ft. long by 3 ft. wide by 3 ft. high is equal to 1 cubic yard.
The dimensions of a 12 cubic yard containers are 14 feet wide, 8 feet long and 3 feet tall. The dimensions of a 15 cubic yard container are 14 feet wide, 8 feet long and 4 feet tall.
And a 12 cubic yard roll-off container will hold 12 cubic yards of debris so it goes without saying that a 15 cubic yard container will hold 15 cubic yards of debris.
So how big of a container do I need for my project?
To get a better understanding of the size of container you will need let’s break down a few projects –
The 12 cubic yard container is perfect for renovating a small room, cleaning up the yard after a “gentle” wind storm, patching a portion of the roof or tearing out the old back deck. Each of those projects would roughly fill up 5 to 6 pick-up truck loads with debris.
The 15 cubic yard container is large enough to tackle bigger projects like kitchen remodeling, new roofs, major storm damage from trees or roofs, and replacing siding or windows. Each of those projects would roughly fill up 8 to 9 pick-up truck loads with debris.
As you can see, there is a bit of a difference between the two sizes. Now, examine your project and compare it to what the various container sizes are typically used for.
Don’t forget the bank account.
A residential roll-off container rental in Acworth can cost you a lot if you don’t go about it smartly.
