"My husband and I moved into a house that needs a lot of repair and we had a few things that were too large to put into the regular trash pick-up. I called around" town, and
was the most reasonably priced. I also liked their website which explained very well how they operate. They dropped off the bin right on time. They even gave us extra time at no charge because of the recent snow storm that delayed our work. We will definitely be using their services again (if we have a need) in the future! We are 100% happy!

"Best experience ever!!!!! Prompt prompt prompt service. Did I mention PROMPT. I called 4 other dumpster services today. Today is Friday January 9th. They all" told me that the soonest the could get a dumpster to me was on Monday. I really needed a dumpster today so that my family and I could spend the weekend cleaning out the garage. I called
and spoke to the owner
. He was very friendly. He assured me that he would have a dumpster in my driveway within a half hour. Half hour later, I have a dumpster in my driveway and the driver was very nice too. I am more than impressed. I am so glad I kept calling around and found
. I HIGHLY recommend and will ONLY use their dumpsters from now on.

Dumpster rental

While most homeowners can take care of basic trash disposal on their own, large jobs, such cleaning out your basement or renovating your bathroom, require a more complex process.

I second the original question (still unanswered). Speaking as someone who logged in today to try to find an attorney, I see this category as one that's exactly what I have my Angie's List membership for:

1. It's important that I find a good one
2. I'm not an expert enough to know myself who is a good one
3. The industry is full of advertisements and misinformation
4. I wish I knew what experiences other people have had


?
I don't care about lawns--I planted mine in clover and don't have to mow it. When I do need to mow I use a rotary Fiskars mower, which is great--or a scythe. That's right--a scythe (the European type, which is smaller, and it's very good exercise). Gas-powered mowers, chemical fertilizers and weed killers--all nasty stuff that gets into everyone's air, soil, and water. I'm sure my neighbor doesn't like my wildflowers, semi-wild pockets of fruit bushes, and unmown areas and yes, dandelions (I have 10 acres) but that's too bad. It's better habitat for wildlife, especially the pollinators on which our food supply depends. I think this obsession with the Great American Lawn is a waste of time and resources. Plant some food instead.


?
I'm not sure Angie et. al. want you to have a complete answer to this question. By re-subscribing at the Indiana State Fair in 2012, I think I paid $20.00 per year for a multi- year subscription. Maybe even less. At the other extreme--and I hope my memory isn't faulty about this--I think the price, for my area, for ONE year was an outrageous $70.00. And they debited me automatically without warning. I had to opt out of that automatic charge. I like Angie's List, but if some of the companies they monitor behaved the way they do in this respect, they'd be on some sort of Pages of Unhappiness. I'll be interested to see if this comment gets published or censored out of existence.

You have to put your self in the shoes of a business that is in business to turn a profit of some sort. All businesses have different overhead which in turn decides what their bottom line would be on their services. I personally would not go with an unlicensed professional for this type of install. You are messing with gas, venting issues, electrical wiring{electric water heater} and updated code issues such as a drain pan and tempature and relief drain lines for heaters that currently do not have them. I do agree that there are some companies that are way out of line for their installs but most of these companies are the really big companies that have very high overheads  I would assume. Tank type water heaters have changed over the last several years and with these safety changes come bigger prices. The price of steel thanks to China is skyrocketing and tank type water heaters are made of steel. Most wholesale plumbing supply companies cannot match what the big box stores are selling at retail to consumers. I happen to think from research that heaters such as Rheem, Bradford White and AOSmith who have been in business forever make a better product than what you can buy in the big box outlets. You also have to take in consideration the location of the water heater that is being replaced. Is it in the house, basement, garage or attic. Most 40 and 50 gallon water heaters that are purchased in a plumbing wholesale store in Texas cost between 300-340 for a 6 year warranty heater with 6 year on parts and tank. Speaking of warranty. Most big box companies will take a least 24 hours to a week to get your warranty problem taken care of. Most reputable plumbing companies will give same day service if they installed the heater.

So lets break down a typical install at cost to a licensed plumber in Texas

Heater: $315, water shut off $6.50, water flex lines or unions to code $20, gas flex line and cut off to code $12, misc fittings $15, Total $368.50 Lets add a 35% profit which is some what low  for a business $129, Total 497.50

This doesnt  include permits, pan and drain or any venting issues. The vent must go from the heater to the outside of roof using double wall vent.

Cost of permit on average $60

Most plumbing companies allow for 3 hours of time for a water heater. This includes picking the new one up. Delivering out to house. Draining and removing old water heater. Hauling off old heater. Installing new heater up to code. Going down to city and pulling permit.

Average Labor charges for heater installs $400

That would make this install run without extras on any code issues $957.50

I just had a 50 gallon gas water heater installed in my house for $1200 but I needed a pan installed. I used a licensed plumber.

That's very difficult to answer without seeing the house. As one poster said, the prep is the most important part. On newer homes that don't have a lot of peeling paint, the prep can be very minimal even as low as a couple or a few hundred dollars for the prep labor.

On a 100 year old home with 12 coats of peeling paint on it, then the prep costs can be very high and can easily exceed 50% of the job's labor cost.

A 2100 sq ft two story home could easily cost $1000 just for the labor to prep for the paint job. That number could climb too. Throw in lots of caullking  or window glazing, and you could be talking a couple or a few hundred dollars more for labor.

Painting that home with one coat of paint and a different color on the trim could run roughly $1000 or more just for labor. Add a second coat  and that could cost close to another $1000 for labor.

For paint, you may need 20 gallons of paint. You can pay from $30-$70 for a gallon of good quality exterior paint. The manufacturer of the paint should be specified in any painting contract. Otherwise, the contractor could bid at a Sherwin-Williams $60 per gallon paint and then paint the house with $35 Valspar and pocket the difference. $25 dollars per gallon times 20 gallons? That's a pretty penny too.

That was the long answer to your question. The short answer is $2000 to $4000 and up, depending upon the amount of prep, the number of coats, the amount of trim, and the paint used.

Todd said it best.

An itemized list / cost breakdown, more often than not is used against the contractor when it is shared with other builders who will then beat it.

Good contractors use good people, and good people cost more.  Just the cost of having the appropriate insurance / bond can be the difference between winning a job or losing it ot a 'lower bid'.

It is the rule of three; there is Good, Cheap and Fast.  You can have any two:  Good and Cheap, won't be Fast; Good and Fast, won't be Cheap;  Cheap and Fast, won't be Good!

When comparing bids, it isn't the cheapest or the 'nicest' person you should select.   You should understand why there is a large price difference (it shows there are gaps in your design program or what you have asked for specifically, which means there may be arguments later).  If most of the bids are in line, and one is way high or way low,  you want to know why before dismissing or selecting them.

A price-only decision almost always costs more in the long run. 

Good luck!

I have not had a resolution to my problem. I went there and talked to the owner about what happened. He expressed his apologies, but I had not heard back as well as a charge that I did not authorize. That charge is still on my card after all this time so I think in their minds they are done with it.

Everyone we had contact with, from the owner to people working for him, was extremely nice and professional. The dumpster was delivered later than we expected which would have been an issue if I hadn't thought someone needed to be home for that part. Completely my fault, not the company's! We were very impressed with how clean the dumpster was and the process of dropping it went very smoothly. I was contacted because I had reserved a larger bin but none were available.

, the owner, offered to bring another 10yd bin out if we filled the one we had or if additional space wasn't needed, he said he would charge us for the smaller bin. Can't complain about that! Turns out we were able to make the smaller size work for us anyway. The basic rental period is 7 days. When the bin hadn't been picked up on the 9th day, I made a call afraid that I had messed up. Turns out that with the holiday weekend and a very busy schedule, we had simply been missed. Again, not an issue for us at all and the man I spoke to was beyond nice and helpful. The next day the bin was gone when I got home from work. The driveway was left in good order and you couldn't really tell we had a

at all.

followed up with another call at the end of the week to make sure we were happy and to confirm that he would be charging the card I had made the reservation on. Over the weekend I received an email with my final invoice.

So we had the
Indianapolis Dumpster Rentals Provider Name Locked
delivered on Tuesday around noon. The guy went over all the rules, etc. and had me sign a sheet. I signed it, then later that day realized he had the pick up date scheduled for Thursday. I called the main office, because I wanted to make sure we were getting the

for three days. The guy on the phone was pretty unfriendly and told me that a Thursday pick up was three days. In fact, he said, "
Indianapolis Dumpster Rentals Provider Name Locked
'm, that is three days: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday." I think this is total garbage (no pun intended). If the
Indianapolis Dumpster Rentals Provider Name Locked
was delivered around noon on Tuesday and picked up around one on Thursday, then we received a two day, 49 hour rental. I wouldn't have felt so bad if it had been the beginning of the day Tuesday and the end of the day Thursday, but it wasn't. It was a clear two day rental, and the guy didn't even act apologetic about it. Delivery guys were both good, though.

great to work with, answered all of my questions in a professional and efficient manner, met my schedule for delivery (48 hours) and had the dumpster removed within 2 hours of notifying them I was done. It was awesome that the dumpster could be picked up when I was done and not left in the drive way for the entire week. Also, they brought their own wood for the driveway. Could not have been any more pleased.
