Are Brisbane Skips Worth The Investment?

Skip bins are widely used here in Brisbane by homeowners and business owners alike. They do make waste disposal extremely easy, efficient and cost-effective after all. However, many people still wonder if they are worth the investment.

Today, I’ll give you a breakdown of the costs involved in hiring a skip vs not having a skip. I’ll also offer you some tips on how you can get more value out of skip bins by loading them efficiently. After going through this post, you’ll realise that Brisbane skips are actually worth the investment.

Costs of hiring a skip vs not having a skip

If you don’t hire a skip to dispose of waste, you’ll certainly save on skip hire costs. However, you’ll need to drive your waste to the rubbish tip yourself in this case. This brings about transportation and fuel costs. Moreover, if you need to dispose of large amounts of waste, you’ll probably need to make multiple car trips to the tip or worse, hire a trailer or a Ute. Add to this the time and effort you need to put in to dispose of your waste. You can certainly see that this is both times consuming as well as expensive.

On the other hand, our Brisbane skips are available on a 7-day hire for as low as $275 at 4 Waste Removals. By hiring one of our skip bins, you need not arrange for transportation, and you won’t bear fuel costs. Also, all you need to do with our skips is to gather your waste and dump it into the skip. We will collect and dispose of waste for you – saving you a lot of time, as well as effort.

You can see for yourself, the costs of hiring a skip are much lower than not using a skip to dispose of waste. That’s why so many Brisbane residents make use of skip bins to dispose of their household or business workplace waste.

How to get more value from a skip bin hire?

To get the most value from Brisbane skips, you must ensure to pack waste efficiently into a skip. Now, there are several things you can do to achieve this. First of all, don’t start dumping waste right into your skip. Gather your waste first and have a plan how to go about filling the skip.

Load the skip with flat items first and then proceed with heavier items. Then, move on to adding smaller items in between the gaps and spaces of the heavy items. Break down unwieldy items to make them fit into the gaps. Leave lighter items at the top of the bin.

And, if you hire our Brisbane skips at 4 Waste Removals, efficient waste loading will be much simpler for you. That’s because our skip bins feature a rear-hinged door which can be opened completely. This offers you full walk-in access into the skip, allowing for efficient loading of waste.
