Understanding 4 Waste’s Skip Bin Pricing Structure

Hiring a skip bin from 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins is not like hiring a skip bin from another Brisbane skip bin provider. We do things quite differently – in favour of our valued customers. Our skip bins are different, and our pricing structure is different, each of which goes hand in hand.

When you hire a skip bin in Brisbane, Redlands, Logan, or Ipswich from 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins, the initial hire process is the same as other skip bins companies. You hire a skip bin based on the size of the skip. Like other skip bin companies, we offer a range of sizes, from 2m3 to 20m3, but this is where the similarities end.

When you select a skip bin size, you’re not choosing the size skip bin that we deliver, but the volume of waste you’re paying us to remove. Regardless of whether you hire a 2m3 skip bin or a 15m3 skip bin, we will deliver either a 6m3 or an 8m3 skip bin to your premises. You can load your rubbish to the marked fill level of the size skip bin that you paid for.

Every skip bin has clearly marked fill levels at every cubic metre, so you can keep track of how much rubbish you load into the skip bin.

If you order a skip bin smaller than the size skip bin that is delivered, you can fill the skip bin to the marked level you paid during your initial booking.  For example, if you hired a 2m3, you can fill the 6/8m2 skip bin to the 2m3 fill level. If you go over this level, you will be charged the difference.

If you ordered a skip bin larger than a 6m3 or an 8m3 skip bin, you have the option of having multiple skip bins delivered at once (e.g., if you hired a 10m3 skip bin, you can have 2 x 6m3 skip bins delivered at once) or having one skip bin delivered as the first skip bin is collected. In this case, where a 10m3 skip bin was hired and 2 x 6m3 skip bins are delivered, your hire fee covers you to load the skip bins with 10m3 of waste. If you fill both skip bins to the brim, you will be 2m3 over your hire free, and you will be charged for the additional 2m3 of waste.

How does our pricing structure benefit the customer?

Our pricing structure may initially look to be to our benefit, but it really isn’t. It is structured in such a way to provide convenience and efficiency to our customers, and it saves most customers hundreds of dollars.

The most challenging aspect of hiring a skip bin is knowing what size skip bin to hire. Hire a skip bin too small, and then you’re either left with a mountain of rubbish or have to cave into hiring a second skip bin, which is much more expensive than hiring the right size skip bin to start with. Hire a skip bin too big; then you have wasted money that could have otherwise been saved.

Our pricing structure eliminates this problem.

Providing you hire a skip bin smaller than your needs, you won’t ever have to worry about paying a cent more than you need to for your skip bin hire.

Because our skip bins pricing is based on the volume of waste you’re paying us to remove and not the size of the skip bin delivered to your door, you have the flexibility to continue filling the skip bin until you’ve loaded all your waste. As mentioned, you are then only charged the difference from your initial hire and not the full hire charge of having a second skip bin delivered.

For example: If you hire a 5m3 skip bin and realise you should have hired a 7m3 skip bin, you would usually have to pay two hire fees. Based on our rates, that would cost you $350 for the 5m3 skip bin, then an additional $275 for the second, 2m3 skip bin.

Other skip bin provides would charge your:
5m3 skip bin ($350) + 2m2 skip bin ($275)  = $600

This isn’t the case with 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins. Using the same example, you would have to pay $350 for the initial 5m3 skip bin, then the difference in the price of the 5m3 and the 7m3 skip bin, which is just an additional $130.

4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins would charge you:
5m3 skip bin ($350) + 2m3 difference ($130)  = $480

By choosing 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins, you’ll be saving yourself $120 in this example alone. The savings only get larger as you move into larger size skip bins.
