Bin There Dump That, founded in 2001, is a dumpster rental franchise with locations throughout North America. In a sea of competition, the company claims to be the innovator of clean, accessible, and compact containers, doing dumpster rentals like no one else. Since beginning to franchise in 2003, the company has grown to over 140 franchises in the U.S., and another few dozen in Canada. Bin There Dump That is committed to supporting franchisees, both old and new.
As a franchisee, you’ll be helping customers who are moving or downsizing, cleaning up their homes, renovating, and dealing with environmental and disaster remediation. Containers range from 4 to 20 yards and can fit into small spaces. They never sit directly on the ground, which protects customer’s driveways from accidental damage. With double doors, customers will also be able to easily access the inside of the container.
But what makes the company stand out is its commitment to delivering outstanding customer service. If you’re a people person and believe that first impressions are important, you may be looking at the right company.
