How To Save $$$ On Your Next Skip Bin Hire!

Whether you are clearing out your garage or loft, making room in your home by de-cluttering, landscaping your garden or even renovating, one of the most important things you can do to make life that little bit easier is booking in a skip bin hire Perth.  There are many to choose from and if like me, you tend to go for the first one you see, stop and read on. The truth is by simply picking the first skip hire Perth company, you could actually be faced with hidden costs and end up paying way much more than you initially anticipated. I have learnt this the hard way so to make sure you don’t end up making the same mistakes I have, here are the top 6 ways you can actually save money on your next skip bin hire.


The initial major choice you’ll need to make is what dimension skip bin to choose from. There are many sizes from and I know it can be challenging to guestimate the exact amount of rubbish you could be throwing out, especially for one-off de-cluttering or structure projects. A top tip is to collect all your rubbish together in one place to provide you an idea of the size of skip you’ll need before booking in your skip bin hire Perth. If you are still unsure, you are better of hiring a skip that is one size up than you anticipate. This may cost you more initially, but is cheaper than running out of space and having to book in a second skip bin. But here is also where you can begin to see the difference in skip bin hire Perth companies. A reputable and experienced company will be more than happy to advice you as to the best size and type of skip bin for your exact needs.


There are some items that cannot simply be disposed of in your skip bin. For instance, some liquids, chemicals and materials such as asbestos will need to be disposed of by alternative means. Prior to booking your skip, speak to the skip hire Perth company and ask them to confirm what can and cannot be disposed of, the rules and any additional costs.


One of the first things I mentioned is opting for the first skip bin hire Perth company you find.  It can pay to look around and acquire quotes from a number of companies in your location. Remember that you want a business with an excellent track record that will certainly give you fast turn-around times, same day delivery, free advice, a range of skip sizes and types at the most affordable price.


It can pay to make your booking well in advance; some skip hire Perth businesses often charge a surplus for same-day or short-notice solutions.


It is necessary that you know the weight restrictions that are positioned on each skip size prior to booking one in. If you’re having to deal with industrial building materials, rocks or soil, you will very quickly go over the imposed weight limit which will result in extra costs. Find out what the weight restrictions are for your skip bin hire and book accordingly. There is nothing worse than having to pay out more than you anticipated, especially when that cost could have been avoided in the first place. So speak to your skip hire Perth company and seek their advice.


You might think you can place the skip bin where it is most convenient to you. I mean it makes sense right? However you should also do a bit of due diligence and check with your regional authority who may have certain restrictions on skip placement. If you place your skip on a main or public road, you may be in breech of shire rules and have to pay a fee. You can avoid this added expenditure by moving things around momentarily to ensure the skip bin is placed without restriction. For instance, you could move your car off your drive and park it in the road for a few days so you can place the skip bin on your driveway.
