Choosing the right garbage trucks for your waste management business is essential for lasting success. Here are three things to consider when making this all-important choice:
- The type of refuse you plan to haul
- The scale of your operations
- Your budget
In this post, we’ll consider these three factors in greater detail. We’ll also explore why garbage truck rentals may be the solution you’re looking for. Get in touch with our office today to learn more about this flexible and budget-friendly option.
Residential or Commercial Waste? Why It Makes All the Difference
Residential waste is easy to compact, fits into standard-sized trash cans, and is accepted at virtually all landfills across the country.
If this is the primary type of waste you work with, then your best choice is probably a side loader truck with an automated grabbing arm. A rear loader truck may also be a good choice, especially if you employ residential waste handlers, a.k.a. “garbage men.”
Commercial waste is a different story altogether. It may be heavy, oddly shaped, and subject to extensive regulations. Common examples include construction materials, industrial products, and demolition debris. A good choice for this type of refuse is usually a front loader truck designed for emptying dumpsters.
Perhaps you intend to haul both residential and commercial waste. If so, then it’s possible to adapt a front loader for dual usage with an attachment called a “Curotto can.” Our experts can tell you more about this option when you get in touch with us.
Scaling Your Operations for Maximum Profit
Making money in the waste hauling industry is all about volume. But larger trucks are not necessarily your best choice. That’s because they use more fuel, are harder to maneuver, and can subject you to higher fees during weigh-in at your local landfill.
For this reason, it’s best to approximate the amount of waste you plan to haul and match your vehicles to this estimate. We can help you to make this determination when you reach out to us.
Matching Your Fleet to Your Budget
It’s no secret that commercial waste hauling vehicles can be extremely expensive. Newer models can easily cost well in excess of $250,000. Needless to say, undertaking this kind of expense can put a serious crimp in your cash flow.
One way to mitigate this problem is by renting your vehicles from us. Not only will you save money, but you will never have to worry about repairs. Simply perform routine maintenance on the trucks and we take care of any mechanical problems that may come along.
