My experience with them was very good. When you call they let you know the price for size you need and when a dumpster could be delivered. Sent an email with your receipt and with information on the dumpster. They delivered when they were suppose to and called back to have it picked up and they came an picked up the dumpster on time. Would use this company again. Thanks for all your help.
