The Top 5 Mistakes in Dumpster Rental Management and How Our Dumpster Software Prevents Them

Running a dumpster rental business is no walk in the park. From customer service hiccups to logistical nightmares, we’ve seen it all. That’s why we created our all-inclusive dumpster software to keep you on the straight and narrow. Today, we’re unpacking the top five dumpster management blunders and showing you how DRS can be the cure-all for each of them.

Mistake #1: Poor Scheduling and Dispatching

How DRS Fixes It: We get it; scheduling is tough, especially when you’re dealing with multiple orders and pickups in a single day. The slightest error can create a domino effect of delays and unsatisfied customers.

DRS comes to the rescue with an all-encompassing CRM. You can keep track of your most important clients, group them any way you like by color coding, and even import your existing customer list. Customize your checklists, tasks, and notes to streamline dispatching. It’s like having a personal assistant that never takes a day off!

Mistake #2: Losing Track of Inventory

How DRS Fixes It: Misplacing a dumpster isn’t just annoying; it’s costly. When each dumpster represents potential revenue, losing track is the last thing you want.

With our box tracking feature, you can assign unique box numbers to every dumpster in your fleet and add the location of each bin to your system. For example, if you have to leave a bin at the dump or store bins at multiple yards, our system allows you to track where you’ve stored each particular bin. Add statuses like “Full,” “Clean,” and “Damaged” so you’ll always know what each dumpster is up to. Think of it as a GPS for your dumpsters.

Mistake #3: Inefficient Routing

How DRS Fixes It: Fuel is expensive and time is money. That’s why inefficient routing is a double whammy you want to avoid.

Enter the DRS Driver App, the Swiss Army knife of dumpster rental apps. Configure your employees’ routes directly in the Control Panel, and let the app do the rest. Need to update a route at the last minute? No problem. Our user-friendly system allows you to make changes in real-time. Your drivers will get real-time updates, including customer details and any special instructions for delivery or pick-up. It’s all about getting from Point A to Point B without the zigzag.

Mistake #4: Incomplete Data and Lack of Insights

How DRS Fixes It: When it comes to business, what you don’t know can hurt you. And let’s be honest, piecing together business insights from multiple platforms is no one’s idea of fun.

DRS has you covered with in-depth reporting features that include everything from ROI breakdowns to employee performance. Drill down with over 200 reports and filters to make data-driven decisions that can propel your business forward. It’s like having a business consultant who’s awake 24/7.

How DRS Fixes It: Who says business hours are from 9-5? In the digital age, customers expect round-the-clock service.

With DRS, you don’t just keep up with the times; you’re ahead of them. Our true online booking system has been proven to increase sales by up to 60%!
