Factors To Consider Before Buying a Used Roll Off Truck

Roll off trucks are popular choices for waste management and debris removal in the commercial, industrial, and construction sectors. The roll and tilt mechanism allows for the open and topless containers to be easily deposited and retrieved on project sites, which lets you keep containers at multiple locations and serve a variety of customers with fewer trucks and drivers. The large volume capacity of the dumpsters increases efficiency by saving you trips back and forth to the landfill.

There are countless situations where a roll off truck is the right tool for the job. Roofing, demolition, gut home renovations, and natural disaster cleanup are just some of the common applications for preowned roll off garbage trucks.

There are many factors to consider when it comes to purchasing a roll off truck, and the price is one of the most important. Used vehicles often make the most financial sense, letting you add a top-quality workhorse to your fleet at a significantly lower cost than buying new. Read on for additional key factors below.

Container Sizes

One of the most important considerations is container size. For larger roll off trucks, it could be possible to transport containers of any size. Smaller trucks could still carry an array of containers, but the options are more limited. Consider your size needs when purchasing a used roll off truck.
