“We’re a locally owned business.” “Shop locally.” “Support local businesses.” You hear it all the time, but what does it actually mean, and more importantly, what are the benefits for you. Supporting a locally owned business does more than just pumping more dollars into the local economy as compared to an out of town, or out of state company, it also has implications for you and your project. Being a locally owned and operated company means we can dictate pricing, schedules, delivery times, and are more responsive than a national chain. All of this means you save money, get better service, and support your neighbors when ordering a dumpster through us.
Quicker Response Times
Part of being a locally owned company means we know the area. Whether it’s a job off Bacons Bridge Road in Summerville or a job on E. Arctic on Folly Beach, we know the ins and outs of what makes the place we call home tick. Why does this matter you may ask? Its simple, we know where traffic gets bad and when it gets bad. We know what areas of downtown Charleston flood, we know when beach traffic on the way to Sullivans Island is getting bad, and we know that you really can’t get anywhere on I-26 Westbound after 3:30 in the afternoon. Because we’re not dispatching from some out of state call center and live here on a daily basis, we can make our routes more efficient then the national chains by scheduling our drivers to avoid these areas during peak times. This means we get more done and have a turnaround time of 24 hours or less, compared to 3 or 4 days like the other guys. This also helps us save on expenses such as fuel and overtime pay, which we can then pass those savings on to you. Don’t worry though, if you need a dumpster in Goose Creek during rush hour, we’ll make it happen. After all, our customers always come first. Ask yourself if those out of town guys feel the same way while you’re waiting on hold to speak to one of their representatives in Arizona.
Local Decision Makers
Another reason going with a locally owned company matters is because our owners and managers live here. That means decisions on things such as giving a few extra days of rental for free doesn’t have to go through some corporate bureaucracy and is something we can make a decision on instantly. If you’ve ever dealt with a large corporation, you know getting help can be a nightmare. You’ll call a 1-800 number, only to be transferred seven times and put on hold. Even when you speak to a customer service representative, that person is so far removed from the decision-making process, there’s little concern that the company will lose you as a customer. It’s different here and it means that in the unfortunate case something does go wrong, our owners are here giving the issue at hand their full attention to make it right. Our employees live all around the Tri-County area in Charleston, Folly Beach, Johns Island, Moncks Corner, Hanahan, Summerville, Ladson, North Charleston, and Mount Pleasant, so chances are one of them is your neighbor. Give us a call and let us show you what local decision making really means. Tell us what you need in your dumpster rental, whether it’s a special delivery time, a weekend delivery, a long term rental, or just a neighbor making sure to be extra careful when putting that big metal box down on your driveway, and watch how we can fit your needs a lot better than some stranger in a call center.
We’re Your Neighbors and We Care
Truthfully, we do. We care about the projects you have going on and love to see our dumpsters on jobsites that are transforming the face of Charleston, or just transforming the inside your garage for a much overdue spring cleaning. Driving around town and seeing our dumpsters fills us with pride. More importantly though, it means we care about doing things the right way. We care to make sure our trucks are properly tarped and aren’t spilling trash all over our beautiful waterways and beaches, we care to make sure our GPS tracked trucks are safely following all traffic laws, and most importantly we care about taking care of your property when delivering and picking up our dumpsters.
Your Dollars Stay Local
When a consumer buys local, significantly more of that money stays in the community. In fact, one study found that for every $100 spent at a local business, $72 remained in the city while only $38 of each $100 spent at a chain retailer. As a locally owned business we have the incentive to support other local businesses, patronizing local establishments for both business and personal reasons. Our mechanics, tire and equipment vendors, insurance agents, and just about every other vendor we use is based right here in the Holy City. Chain businesses, on the other hand, tend to get their supplies from corporate, as well as having store managers and employees that aren’t as personally invested in buying local. We also support our own employees at a level that out of state managers, owners, and decision makers just don’t do.
