I’m pretty confident you’re eventually going to need a roll-off. A what?
A roll-off dumpster.
Basements And Attics
You’ve been avoiding it…dreading it even, but it’s finally time for you to help move your parents out their home. The home they’ve lived in for the past 40 years.
Look, it’s hard. Especially on an emotional level. There’s some sadness usually sprinkled in with a decent amount of guilt. But it needs to be done.
And it usually starts in the basement or attic. An area that’s stuffed to the gills with 40 years worth of who knows what. And lots of personal family items normally located in (mostly) unmarked boxes and plastic bins. Let the sorting begin!
In most cases, you’ll separate the contents into piles.
Pile #1 includes the stuff you’re definitely keeping.
Pile #2 is the stuff you’re not sure if you’re keeping.
Pile #3 is junk…garbage.
Pile #4 are the things that get donated to charity.
Some of things you may want to donate include:
- Gym equipment
- Blankets/pillows etc.
Unless they won’t take some of it.
One more thing. Your city may not take some of that stuff away, either.
So now what do you do?
After all, you can’t just leave it in the house. The solution?
You’ll find it in the next section.
Bin There Dump That: A Roll-Off Dumpster Franchise Business
When John Ferracuti became the COO of Bin There Dump That, a roll-off dumpster franchise, he quickly realized how simple this business was. He told me as much.
“Joel, I think the Bin There Dump That business model is the simplest business I’ve ever been involved with.” I agree. Think about it.
For starters, all you need are dumpsters, trucks to drop off the dumpsters, employees to drive the trucks, and a place to dump the contents of said dumpsters. There’s not a lot of moving parts, folks.
And if you go with Bin There Dump That, you’ll get a complete operating system plus the support you need to own and operate a thriving dumpster rental franchise business. That’s right. The dumpsters are rented to your customers.
Now let’s see why owning a franchise business in this space may make sense for you.
Advantages Of Owning A Bin There Dump That Roll-Off Franchise
The 1st advantage of being the owner of a Bin There Dump That franchise in your local area is it’s simplicity.
In a nutshell, you buy a dumpster roll-off truck. A truck built for one purpose: to drop off and pick up dumpsters.
Then you buy a good number of different-sized bright-green dumpsters.
Secondly, the roll-off dumpster business is super-scalable.
Again, you start with one roll-off truck and a couple of employees. And several dumpsters.
Then you start doing business. And more business. Enough to add another truck and another employee or two. And several more bright-green dumpsters. And so on.
And if things go really well, you can try to secure another territory*.
If that works out, you scale it the same way as you did with your original territory.
Soon, you’ll have a franchise business with several trucks and dozens of roll-off dumpsters bringing in revenue. It’s so darn simple. Are you starting to visualize it?
*Bin There Dump That franchise territories are large.
For example, a single territory generally has a population of 350,000-450,000 people. That normally translates into approximately 100,000 single family homes (and driveways).
Thirdly, franchisees have two markets to target.
Residential and Commercial.
The residential side of the roll-off dumpster business targets homeowners who are moving, doing home renovations, cleaning up after a major storm, and more.
On the commercial side, all types of businesses rent roll-off dumpsters. And lots of these businesses are located in your already large territory. These include:
- Construction companies
- Disaster cleanup companies
- Roofing companies
- Office and apartment building owners
- Landscape companies
The good news?
The more relationships franchisees (you?) can create with area businesses, the better their chances are of obtaining potentially lucrative commercial accounts.
Another Serious Advantage
In fact, if you’d like to own a business that’s operates during pretty normal hours, check out Bin There Dump That.
From COO, John Ferracuti:
“Our local franchises kick off their bin deliveries at 8 am in most areas, with our dedicated Delivery Experts getting an early start to prep their trucks.
Throughout the day, we schedule pickups, but please note that dumping facilities tend to close by 4 or 5 pm on weekdays, so pickups after 4 pm are quite rare.
Note: busy locations might arrange Saturday deliveries, but keep in mind that dump facilities usually stay closed on weekends, making pickups infrequent. Our local locations typically operate and make deliveries on Saturday mornings.
To ensure excellent customer service around the clock, we utilize an answering service and employ Dumpster Consultants (Local Customer Service Reps) during evenings and weekends.
That’s because we don’t want prospective customers to encounter voicemail during off-hours.
That said, here are our typical operating hours for franchisees:
- Monday to Friday: 8 am to 5 pm
- Saturday: 8 am to 1 pm
- Sunday: Closed“
How does that sound?
