A skip bin hire helps you to get rid of all your rubbish in one go for a flat fee, so you don’t have to make multiple trips to the tip where you might have to pay every time.
Before you book there are some things you should consider, so you can choose the best company for you.
What size bins do they offer? Most companies offer a standard bin width of 1.6 metres, and lengths varying from 2.4–5.2 metres.
If you have a narrow or short drive or fancy landscaping along the sides of your drive, take some measurements so you can choose a company with skip bins to fit your needs.
But what if you don’t have a place on your property for a skip bin to be put down?
If this is your situation, you will have to contact your local council and apply for a permit to have a skip bin either put down in the road outside your home or on a nature strip.
This can be a bit of a process though, so if you can choose a company that offers a wait-and-load service you’ll then be able to avoid having to deal with the council at all.
There are many different styles of skip bins. Before you choose a company, check to see what kind they offer.
Skip bins with doors that open at the back make for easier loading of items like old appliances because you can walk them in rather than having to try and figure out how to get the whitegoods up and over the side.
Finally, you also want to choose a bin company with a decent hire period.
If you’re doing a large declutter, it might take a couple of days to load everything up in the bin.
Or if you’re doing a remodel and haven’t ripped anything out yet because you’ve been living in the house, more than a couple of days will be needed.
These are just a few things to consider before choosing a company for your skip bin hire, so be sure to call around and ask some questions before booking.
