How To Get The Best Deal When Hiring A Skip Bin

August 14, 2020

If you’ve decided to pull the trigger and dispose of all of that rubbish lying around your home, you may now be wondering how you can save money when hiring a skip bin in Perth. There are a number of different factors to consider when looking at hiring a skip bin, and you can see the pricing page of Matera Environmental for a full breakdown of prices. In this article we aim to provide you with 3 key tips on how to get the most out of hiring a skip bin and help you save some money in the process.

1. Gather Your Rubbish In A Convenient Location Before Hiring Your Skip Bin

Although this may seem like an obvious thing to do, you’d be surprised at how many people neglect to gather all of their rubbish before they hire a skip. This results in either a panicked clean up and disposal experience, or it means you’ll need to hire the bin for a longer period of time, which will end up costing you more money.

When hiring your bin, It is also important to note where exactly you’d like your skip bin to be placed (e.g. front verge, in the driveway etc.) as this way you know exactly where to start gathering your waste. Having all of your waste in one convenient location ready to dispose of when your skip bin arrives, will ensure that you only have to hire the bin for a minimum amount of time, saving you money on the hire.

Most skip bin hiring companies hire by the week and not the day, so this is something to keep in mind when hiring your bin. For example, if you hired a 5 cubic metre skip bin for 1 week, instead of 2, you’d be saving yourself $30! 

2. Pack Your Waste In An Efficient Manner

This tip goes hand in hand with the first and can help to save you money when you hire a skip bin. Make sure that you are breaking down cardboard, crushing down items and disassembling other items where you can. This will allow you to fill your skip bin efficiently, and not have to worry about it overflowing or wasting any unnecessary space.

3. If In Doubt, Go The Extra Size Up

One question that we always get asked at Matera Environmental is “what size skip bin do I need?” To help answer this, we’ve put together a handy skip bin sizing and visualisation guide to help you figure it out. In any case, if you are in doubt about the sizing, it’s always best to call and discuss your needs with our experienced team. This will ensure that you have the amount of space you need to dispose of the waste effectively, and not having to worry about it overfilling or incurring any extra emptying charges.

Trust us, it’ll save you money in the long run when you go up a size instead of having to hire another skip bin down the line.

We hope that you find these tips helpful when looking to dispose of waste. If you follow these carefully, you’ll not only be saving yourself money on hiring a skip bin, but also your valuable time and effort as well!
