    I need to rent a dump truck for next week. Can't find a rental place on Long Island besides Bissett. I'm in Kings Park/Smithtown- so that's a bit far for me.
    Any suggestions?

    Well, almost a year and a half later, there's still no dump truck rentals on Long Island. I've rented a dump truck from Middle Island Rental, but for landscaping cleanups, the sides are somewhat low. Also, the big problem is that they can't/won't switch from a 2" to a 2 5/16" hitch ball, to allow me to tow my enclosed 7' x 16' trailer. So, I'm forced to rent their trailer, in addition to the truck, and then move all the equipment I need out of my trailer into theirs. Then at the end of the day, I have to move it all back in to my trailer.
