How much will it cost?
Price is determined by 3 factors: the type of material you put into the TUB, and the number of TUBS ordered for delivery and pick-up at the same time and the county the delivery will be in. Prices include all delivery and pick-up fees, disposal fees, taxes and a rental of up to 7 days. Call us at 612.825.TUBS (8827) for pricing details.

How do I pay for my TUB?
Payment is required upon delivery. Cash, check, Visa or Mastercard accepted.

Where will you put my TUB?
TUBS are delivered with a crane for convenient placement options. Click here for a picture of the TUBS crane. The crane can lift the TUB approximately 15 feet from the truck. Therefore, we can lift the TUB into your yard or driveway up to 15 feet from the street or alley. Or, if you choose to have the truck drive on your driveway for closer placement, we simply require you to sign a damage waiver. All TUBS are placed on your property so no permits are required for placement. We do not place our TUBS in the street. Click the following link for a copy of our damage waiver, pdf version or html version.

Will it damage my driveway?
TUBS drivers always take normal precautions while picking-up and delivering TUBS. However, delivery trucks are large and heavy, and the condition of your driveway along with changing weather conditions can make your driveway, sidewalk or yard vulnerable to damage. Click the following link for a copy of our damage waiver, pdf version or html version. The TUB itself is flat-bottomed and weighs about 500 pounds so it should not cause damage. If left on the grass or driveway for much more than a week, it could kill the grass or cause a rust stain depending on the time of year. However, this damage might be avoided by placing 2x4’s under the TUB. We do not provide 2x4's, but our driver will place your TUB on them if they are provided for us.

Can I move my TUB?
No! We will do our best to place your TUB in a convenient spot as you request. Once we have placed it, you may not move it. Moving the TUB causes wear and tear, and if it is moved, we may not be able to reach the TUB with our crane for a safe pickup.

Is there a weight limit?
Heavy materials such as concrete, dirt, brick, rock, sand, asphalt and sod must not fill the TUB more than 21 inches up from the bottom. We cannot lift a TUB that is filled more than 21 inches up from the bottom with these heavy items for safety reasons. You may put lighter materials on top of the heavy materials up to level full for complete use of the TUB.
back to top

Can I fill my TUB to the top?
All materials must be inside the TUB, nothing over the top or out the sides. Safety is our main priority when hauling your TUB. We are required to cover the dumpster for hauling and cannot have anything flowing over the top. Heavy materials such as concrete, dirt, brick, rock, sand, asphalt and sod must not fill the TUB more than 21 inches up from the bottom.
