Avoid the hassles
Avoid The Hassles

When you’ve got enough rubbish to need a skip bin, you’re likely not looking for any other hassles.

Skip bin hires are typically project based so you want to complete the work, load the skip and have it removed as quickly and efficiently as possible.

However, if you look at online reviews for companies in our business, there are a lot of ways that things can go sideways when trying to hire a skip.

In the following slides we’ve outlined what you will need to know before you pay for your next Skip Bin Hire.

Do your homework
Do Your Homework

While we’d love to service every skip bin hire Perth has available, sometimes that’s just not possible. When you’re looking for an alternative skip bin hire company, it’s vital you do your homework.

1. Ask for personal recommendations2. Check online reviews and complaints3. When you call to enquire, ask questions about payment, placement, and contact.

Hiring the wrong company can bring you nothing but grief, so be prepared to do your homework and get it right the first time.

Get the right skip
Get The Right Skip

  • Take the time to go over your project and determine what rubbish you’ll be throwing out and what sized bin you’ll need. Your skip bin hiring company should be able to help you with this.

  • Skips are not one size fits all, and unscrupulous operators may try to sell you on a larger skip to make more money. Checking prices online or calling a couple of suppliers for quotes can help you identify any questionable quotes.

Make certain of the schedule

Nothing is worse than paying for something you can’t use because it fails to turn up on time. Don’t let this happen with your skip bin hire!

  • Schedule a specific date with your skip bin hire company before you hang up the phone and call back to confirm with them a day or two out. If you’ve read through online reviews, incorrect timing for bin drop-offs and pick-ups is one area that gets a lot of complaints so pay close attention to this.

  • If your skip shows up early, you’re paying for days you can’t use and if it’s late, work may have to halt until it gets there.

Carefully go over the placement
Carefully Go Over the Placement

Skip bins are large and cannot be easily moved so you need to make sure it’s placed correctly the first time.

  • A wrongly placed skip can cause traffic problems, block access to property and make the job of loading your rubbish into it a lot harder.

  • Make sure you describe your ideal placement before the driver shows up. Ask them to write it down and/or offer to send them a photo that shows where would be best.

  • Make sure you or someone who understands what you need is there to meet the driver on delivery, or it may get dropped in the easiest location. If you can’t be there, call and confirm placement a few days before.

Keep careful records
Keep Careful Records

Having a paper trail is your best defence of any issues that may arise in the future.

  • Make sure you write down all of the details of who you hired the skip bin from, delivery and pickup dates, and where the skip bin is to be placed.

  • Also get receipts on all payments and confirm details with the skip bin hire company and the driver at every opportunity.
