Junk Removal FAQs

Junk Removal FAQs

Junk removal is something that every Brisbane homeowner or business owner needs to deal with every once in a while. Some people choose to dispose of junk themselves, while others rely on rubbish removal services.

These rubbish removal services can make your junk disposal quick, convenient and cost-effective. But if you have never used a junk removal service before, they you’re probably don’t know what to expect.

As the owner of 4 Waste Removals, I’m here to help you out. Continue reading as I list some of our most frequently asked junk removal questions. Hopefully, all your doubts and queries related to junk removal will be answered by the time you’re done the reading.

1. What types of waste can be removed?

You can use our junk removal service to remove most types of junk including green waste, general household waste, commercial waste or mixed waste. However, we do not accept heavy waste, hazardous chemical waste or construction waste in our junk skip bins.

2. How much waste can I remove?

Our junk skip bins are available in a one-size-fits-all size with fill levels ranging from 2m³ up to 12m³. Therefore, you can remove as much as 12m³ of junk at a time. And, if you have less, then we’ll charge you only for the amount of waste you fill into our skips and not for the entire skip itself. Note, there are weight restrictions on our junk skip bins which you can find here.

3. How do I hire a junk skip bin?

Hiring a junk skip bin from us at 4 Waste Removals is extremely simple! All you have to do is to place a request with us, and we’ll deliver the skip to your location on the same day (or on your requested date). You can book a skip online on our website, or you can get in touch with us directly to make a booking.

4. How do I estimate how much junk I have?

With us, you don’t really need to estimate how much junk you have before making a hire. We won’t overcharge you for unfilled skip space, and you’ll need to pay only for the waste you dispose of. However, to give you an idea – 1m³ of waste is roughly equivalent to 4 wheelie bins or a family fridge.

5. What is the duration of your service?

We offer our junk skip bins on a 7-day hire basis. For every extra day, we will charge you $50 extra.

6. I don’t have time to collect waste and fill it into a skip. Can you get it done?

Absolutely! In addition to our junk skip bin services in Brisbane, we also offer a hands-on waste removal service. In this service, our team of rubbish removals will collect and dispose of your junk for you. With us around, junk removal will never be a problem for you!
