    Initial contact with phone call was excellent and her follow up was excellent. Delivery of the dumpster was earlier than expected and your delivery person was very professional. Great overall experience.

    Dumpster removal was promised by 10am so the warehouse could schedule a tractor trailer delivery around the pick up because the dumpster was blocking the warehouse door position. Dumpster was not removed until a little after 4pm that, causing major problems with our customer at the warehouse, their scheduled delivery, which done around the direction of zters of when this was to be picked up. The warehouse customer was very upset with us over the removal not taking place when promised, we are just the gc and had no control over this. Also, pricing was very expensive compared to others in the area, we went this this company because of initial schedule and when the dumpster could be delivered. Tabitha was awesome to work with, i would give her 5 stars, otherwise we were not happy with several parts of the service.
