Many people think of skip bins when they need to have junk removed, but skip bins are not the only solution. In fact, skip bins could be more of a problem. In this article we cover some basic considerations when looking at hiring a skip bin compared to hiring a professional team to remove your junk and rubbish.
Skip bins have long been touted as what you need to hire when you’re having a clean out, or doing something that will create a lot of mess. But one of the major problems with skip bins is that you’ll need to do the heavy lifting yourself, and this can be very difficult if you don’t have the proper equipment. Do you think you can lift a refrigerator up and over into a skip bin? We wouldn’t want to either. Without help this can not only be hard but also dangerous.
Skip bins in general are an attractant for anyone nearby to put whatever they like into when you’re not looking. Which, if you have a lot of stuff to dispose of, can overfill the bins and mean that you’ll need to get the bin emptied. This can be a huge additional cost.
Generally, you don’t know when the bin is going to arrive. Many skip bins operators will give you a time frame for delivery, and then another operator will deliver the bin itself. If you’re not home to guide where the bin will go, it may be placed in a less than optimal position, and you’ll need to work around that.
Before you order one, you’ll need to know how much rubbish you have to remove. This can be quite difficult, especially if you are not used to looking at things and making an estimate of how big a pile of rubbish is. This can lead to either not hiring a big enough skip bin or one that’s too large, and both of those options can end up costing you more than you realised.
Unless you have hired a bin specifically for a purpose, such as metal or green waste, odds are that everything you place into the bin will be going to a landfill site. This is because there is no one to sort the rubbish and everything is mixed up, and it is easier for the operator to just take what they get and deliver it straight into landfill. Even though many operators cover the load, while it is out the front of your property, it’s exposed to the elements and items can easily blow away and end up where they’re not supposed to be.
Hiring a company to visit your site and clear all the rubbish away is vastly superior to skip bins and this is predominantly because we do all the work for you. There is no need to load it yourself, and you can be sure that everything we take is going to be disposed of in an ethical way.
