Factors to consider before hiring a Brisbane Skip Company

If you’re looking to hire a skip bin for your rubbish removal needs in Brisbane, before you do so, there are several things that you need to consider. Unfortunately, too many people have been plagued with unreliable Brisbane Skip Companies who under-deliver and over-promise.

As the owner of a Brisbane Skip Company, I really feel for those who have had unpleasant experiences with a skip bin hire. To ensure this does not happen to you, in this post, I will outline the various factors you should consider before engaging the services of a Brisbane Skip Company. By following these tips, your rubbish removal will be convenient and efficient.

Brisbane Skip Company

Look for experience

The first thing to consider when looking at a Skip Company in Brisbane is to check for experience in the industry. Those who have been in the rubbish removal industry for some time will have better knowledge and insight on how to get rid of waste effectively and efficiently. As such, you must choose an experienced company, such as us at 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins. We have been in the rubbish removal business since 1999, and we have a lot of expertise on how to efficiently remove rubbish from your premises.

Skip bin types and sizes

Different companies accept different types of waste and offer varying skip sizes. Depending on the type and the amount of waste that you have, you need to check to see if the Skip Company meets your personal requirements. Here, at 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins, we accept green waste and general waste and have two types of walk-in skip bins for these waste types. Our walk-in skips feature volumes of 6 cubic metres and 8 cubic metres and we charge you on the basis of how much waste you fill into a bin and not for the entire skip bin itself. Find out more about our skip sizes and fill levels.

Types of waste permitted

There are only certain types of waste that are permitted in skip bins, and you must determine beforehand if your waste will be removed by the Skip Company or not. At 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins, we permit green waste in our Walk-In Garden Skips and general and mixed waste in our Walk-In Junk Skips. We do not permit heavy materials such as concrete, bricks, tiles, timber or soil in any of our skip bins. For waste materials which do not contain these prohibited materials, we will gladly offer you our service. Find out more about our accepted and permitted waste types.

Availability of service

Some Brisbane Skip Companies have a waiting period before delivering a skip bin to you. If you need a skip bin in a short period of time, you should look at a service which offers same-day delivery, such as ours. Our services are always available and we will deliver skip bins throughout Brisbane’s Southside on the same day of booking or on the date you request it to be delivered. Find out more about our service areas.

Rental period

As an industry standard, many Skip Companies, including us at 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins, offer bins on a 7-day rental period. However, the charges for holding bins longer than this specified period differ across different suppliers, and you must check up on extra charges and rates beforehand. 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins will charge you $40 per additional day over 7 days for keeping a skip bin.

Compare prices

Finally, before deciding on a Brisbane Skip Company, you must check up on the rates and prices. Most will offer competitive rates, but you must look to choose a company that offers you the best value for your money. Here, at 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins, we are proud to offer the cheapest skip bin hire services in Brisbane Southside, starting upwards of $275 for a 7-day hire.
