If you ask anyone who knows me to describe me, I’m sure that the most common thing you will hear is that I am a very frugal man. Odds are that they won’t use that word for me though; it’s more likely that they will say that I am cheap. I honestly don’t mind being called cheap as it really isn’t such a dirty word. To me, it describes a very wise way to do business. To give an example of my frugal nature, I’d like to tell you about my recent purchase of a new home for my family. Most people would go with a house that looks really nice and doesn’t have any issues, even if it costs more than a house that just needs a little work. I am not like most people, so when I saw a cheap house that just needed some fixing done to it, I jumped at the opportunity. Sure there was a lot of hard work ahead of me to bring the house up to the standards I wanted, but I’m no stranger to working hard. One of the first things that needed to be fixed up was the fence. The fence that the house came with was made of old wood that was rotting in certain areas, so I decided I should just strip it out entirely and build a new one. I knew that this project was going to generate a lot of waste, so I contacted a dumpster rental service to deliver a dumpster to my house.
The reason I went with this option can be best answered by reminding you that I am a cheap man. Hauling garbage to the city dump over and over again is very costly in both time and money. I did the calculations and determined that I would be spending way more on gas by hauling things myself than if I simply got a dumpster rental. I called up a local company to have them deliver a 20 yard dumpster to my home. This company is known as City Service and I went with them as they appeared to have the lowest prices around as well a great reputation. Their punctuality in delivering my dumpster further cemented their reputation into my mind. With the dumpster in my possession, I was able to get to work right away.
After a couple of days of work, I finally ridded my property of that eyesore of a fence. I called City Service up to let them know I was ready for them to pick up their roll off dumpster and I was quite pleased that they took no time to arrive for the pickup. I paid them the agreed upon price, waiting for them to inform me that there was some hidden charge that I was not made aware of. This was not the case, and they rolled off with my waste in tow. I was very pleased in every way with this business transaction and I recommend them to anyone who needs such a service.
