of the larger roofing companies purchased their own dump trailers with the
intention of saving lots of money dumping roofing debris themselves. Allow Express Roll off Dumpsters, your local
dumpster company in Palm Bay and the surrounding cities in Brevard County,
Florida to break down the actual costs to our self-employed roofing
contractors. Please bear in mind we are
assuming your dump trailer is owned outright in this scenario without a monthly
Roofing contractors in Melbourne should rent a dumpster from
Express Roll Off because:
- We can save your roofing company on fuel costs. That’s right, good old gas is a hefty expense
every month- we are certain of this.
These trips from job site to the dump (depending on where the re-roofs or
roof repairs is located may be $20 - $50 dollars in fuel/per trip.
We can save roofing contractors precious payroll expenses. The average roofer makes $15.60 per hour according to and this does not include his overtime wages,
workman’s compensation insurance, the 941 payroll contributions we business
owners pay, re-employment, and/or any other benefits that an employer may
invest in their staff. Trips to and from
the dump, providing the lines move rather quickly can take two to two and a
half hours. With just one employee in
the truck dumping these materials this can cost your company $30 - $45/per trip.
Save your sense of smell. The dump stinks. It’s free
to dump roofing debris; but it is gross.
Your trucks will get dirty, it smells, and the seagulls love to take a
dump on your windshield.
Save on mileage which in turn leads to breakdowns with the
additional wear and tear on your truck- not to mention the heavy hauling your
vehicle is doing by towing the extra weight around. At close to $.60/mile ($.575 per mile to be exact). A 43 mile round trip is going to cost you
roughly $25 in wear and tear figures the IRS and we can assume this is a
- Save on slack! We all know
how hard it is to keep your employees focused.
Making an extra trip to the dump isn’t exactly going to motivate your
workers. If anything the trip will end
up turning into a convenience store run, barrage of phone calls, and even a
chain smoking break. The money our
dumpster service can save you here is priceless.
- Self-employed Roofing Contractors can also save on Workman’s
compensation of $18.62 per hundred spent.
For every 2 trips at the dump (which may be how many times you go for
one small roofing job) we can save you close to $20 right here.
Save on Trips from job site to the dump. If your dump trailer is filled to the gills you can maybe haul 5
tons of debris (equivalent to 8 yards), whereas with our rolloff dumpsters, you
will be able to fit more than double this amount- and we dump it for you. Our standard ‘roofer-friendly’ dumpster measures 17.5 feet long x 4.5 ft tall- call for our roofers rates and save
- Express Roll off Dumpsters can save you money on tire
replacement. We all know the dump is
loaded with nails. How many times have
you had to replace a tire(s) just because you drove to the local landfill? This can be costly, ranging from $120 - $220
per tire, plus labor and possible roadside assistance costs.
- Save on DOT fines. Tarping your trailer can be a pain but could lead to costly fines
if you neglect to do so. These fees and fines can cost time and up to $170 . Your Company can also be subject to other
moving violations and/or lawsuits due to this.
If your tarp isn’t properly secured you run the risk of causing
accidents on the road and getting charged for littering. Not to mention your auto insurance rate can
- Save your reputation and potential referrals. The landfill closes at 5:30PM; this potentially tears your crew (or part of
your work force) away from the job site early.
They would have to leave at 4:00PM for instance to get to the dump and
come back to your place of business.
This is an hour and a half of lost work per employee. If we want to keep our word to our valued
