My wife run's a home daycare. The kids were outside playing when the driver came and picked up our dumpster. The driver went above and beyond. He showed the kids what the controls did and how to pick up the dumpster. He even treated the kids with a honk on the air horn as he left. This type of costumer service seems lost nowadays, but it wasn't with this gentlemen. I hope you can find out who it was and commend him for his exceptional service today.

I contacted you for a rental of a dumpster. You delivered the dumpster on the day promised and you picked it up on the day requested. I was very satisfied with your service and if I need a dumpster again you will be the company I call. Thank you.
