Before You Book

There are a couple of things to consider before booking your Skip Bin.  Nothing serious, just a few little pointers to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible.

What's going in your bin?

Each bin we deliver is usually designated for a specific task. ​ Think about what you'll be putting in the bin so it works out as cheap as possible for you?

Use our Bin Selection Chart to help guide you.  There's big savings to be made!

What size bin is needed?

Sometimes it's hard to determine what size bin is needed. You need to visualise the project/task which can be difficult. ​ So, bring out the tape measure and jot down the dimensions. Measure the pile of vegetation, the area of that brick wall, or the amount of space that junk it taking up in the garage.

What about placement?

Of course, you want your bin as close to the project area as possible. Your driver will need clear access to the zone your bin is to be placed. Most of the time it's in the driveway which can get in the way, so perhaps it might be on the grass or perhaps on the street? ​ Check the regulations in your council area to make sure all the paperwork is in order.

See our Skip Bin Placement Guidelines for more detailed information.

How long do you need it?

You can keep our bins for as long as you need. Mostly they'll be gone within a week and sometimes within the day.

Any other deliveries?

If you're in the middle of a project you might be getting other materials delivered. Think about the workflow you've got going. Will the skip be in the way when the timber is delivered, or perhaps the tiles will be in front of the bin which makes it impossible to collect.
