Tips for Renting a Dump Truck

Written by Del's Truck Rentals on . Posted in The Archives for Our Blog

A dump truck is among the most important pieces of equipment at a construction or job site. A dump truck eliminates the need for manual material hauling, allowing contractors to save on labor costs, boost productivity and efficiency, and minimize job site hazards.

One way to save on construction costs is to rent a dump truck. Renting is a smart choice especially for short-term construction projects. While purchasing a new dump truck can set you back $100,000 or more, renting a dump truck might be a more cost-effective option for short-term needs. Renting further eliminates maintenance and repair expenses, which can add up quickly over time.

Truck Rentals in Seattle, WA


If you rent a truck for your move or similar event, you need to know what you’ve gotten into. Driving a moving truck requires certain precautions that you may not have known about before. Read on for some quick and simple tips about truck safety. We understand that you don’t drive a large vehicle all the time, so we’ve given you some reminders to keep your journey safe and accident-free.

  1. Don’t underestimate your mirrors. You have larger blind spots than usual, so remember to check them often and avoid tight spaces.
  2. Trucks are also different in that they take longer to stop and need more space to turn. Compensate by stopping sooner and making carefully planned wide turns.
  3. Don’t forget that large trucks require special parking and even fuel. To avoid mishaps or inconvenience, plot out your stops ahead of time.
  4. You always stay safer while following rules of the road. Obey the speed limit—don’t feel pressured to go faster than you feel comfortable with.
  5. Find out how tall your truck actually stands before you begin your journey. Be mindful of any overpasses and public garages, so you can avoid, those with lower height clearance, and/or tight parking stalls.
