What is the price of a bin tug load mover or dumpster mover?

The cost of our premium quality bin tug or dumpster mover varies depending on the model of the V-Move tug and the options that are chosen. Our cheapest base model tug is our V-Move L .

What we recommend is you determine the payback you can obtain from the purchase of a V-Move bin tug or dumpster mover to justify the purchase.

Payback for a V-Move tug is calculated as the potential savings annually divided into the capital cost of a bin tug or dumpster mover to give a value in years. Anything less than 4 years is an acceptable payback. One part of savings is calculated as the value of preventable injuries, reduced lost workdays, and reduced injury costs by moving bins with a device such as a dumpster mover, load mover, or bin tug. If you are comparing the cost between alternate brands of tugs, then factor in the savings of going up to 3.7 mph with the V-move tug to get the job done faster – which saves labor. Also, if you are considering an AC motor V-move tug, then factor in the additional savings of not having to replace motor brushes and motors down the road, as you would with DC motor tugs.

In some cases, moving heavy loads by hand has resulted in death, but most often in injuries. See our article on moving waste bins: Xerowaste article about moving dumpster bins safely.

If you subcontract the movement of your waste bins, then by bringing that in-house with a V-Move tug, in certain cases, it allows you to save a substantial amount annually. We have Xerowaste customers that have saved up to a net Canadian $15,000 annually from subcontracted costs alone, just by bringing it in-house with a Xerowaste V-Move tug. As well, if you subcontract the movement of semi-trailers, by using a V-move semi-trailer mover you will save up to tens of thousands a year in operating costs and save on capital costs.

There are many other factors to consider when calculating the payback cost of purchasing a V-Move tug to move heavy loads versus pushing and pulling by hand.
