Traditionally, Australian families and businesses have turned to skip bins to dispose of large amounts of household and corporate waste and junk. In the past, the alternatives for rubbish removal were few and far between.
Containers similar to skip bins first are recorded as having been used in the 1920s. In the 100 years or so that have gone by since, it has become increasingly apparent that they are outdated, in many cases inconvenient and generally unattractive.
Many Sydney and Melbourne-based clients ask us about the differences between the JUNK KING full waste removal service and renting a skip bin. So we decided to put together a simple guide to the differences between JUNK KING and skip bin rental.

Many people don’t realise that depending on which council area in NSW or VIC that they are based in, they quite possibly need a council permit to have a skip bin in front of their property. That same skip bin, as it sits there, not only creates an eyesore, but leaves unsightly dead grass behind upon removal.
Another negative of using a skip bin is that all of the heavy lifting has to be done by you in terms of getting your junk out to the skip. When you bring in the professionals from JUNK KING, we handle all of your waste from where ever you’ve left it on your property and carry it to our truck and ultimately off your property.
We don’t like the wrong type of surprises for our clients. The JUNK KING team arrives at the agreed time. We also tell you upfront what the costs will be. When you hire a skip bin, often there are fees that come after disposal, depending on how much you ended up filling the bin – we don’t do that to you. We limit our surprises to our genuine smiles and the feeling of exuberance you have as we cart your junk away!

Disposed of a very heavy, old fridge up and down flights of stairs without even a scratch on the floor plan, apart from several other items that we kept on adding, they managed to find more and more space in their truck to accomodate it all, not the cheapest service, but they clearly have been done this many times before.
Good service, quick and easy done.
I could not be happier. These movers helped clean the whole backyard when I was under the pump on a house sale, they even assisted an old lady down the road from us at no cost moving a heavy fridge to her once done at ours.
On time, fair price, fast service. I would use these guys again, no doubt.
