Budget Skips What To Look For & Where To Find Them

Budget Skips What To Look For & Where To Find Them

I know from personal experience (back before we offered budget skips in Brisbane) that my main priority when looking for skips to hire was the price, and I believe many seek out this preference today. You see, if we look at skip bin generally, they appear to be all the same – or much the same. Thus, it makes sense that the deciding factor is the price.

Everyone loves to save money, and but hiring budgets skips, you’re guaranteed savings.

At 4 Waste Removals, we believe in offering fair-dinkum value for money, not only on our budget skip hire service, but our other rubbish removal services also. We genuinely believe our skips provide tremendous value, but moreover, they offer greater benefits than other budget skips in Brisbane. My point is, while skips may all appear to be the same, some are more beneficial than others, and I’m not just talking about lower hire prices.

Continue reading this post as I provide a few insider tips on what to look for when hiring budget skips and where to find them.

What to look for when hiring budget skips

One budget skip may no bet the same as another. So, before you dive on a skip with an advertised budget rate, it pays to examine the skip a little further to see if it’s not only low in price but high in offerings.

Skip bins, and budget skips even more so, are very competitively priced. There may only be a five or ten-dollar difference in the hire price of small skips. But, one may be significantly better than the other… and if it’s only going to cost $5 or $10 more, then it may be money well spent.

When looking to hire budget skips, look at the following:

  • Price: this is a given. A budget skip isn’t a budget skip if the price isn’t competitive.
  • Size: hiring the right size skip is essential. Ensure you hire the right size skip bin for your needs. Our sister site, Walk-In Skip Bins, has a handy size comparison chart that will surely be of assistance.
  • Functionality: this is most important, in my opinion. The fact is, not all skip bins are the same, some, like ours here at 4 Waste, are better than others! I am biased, I know, but it is truth. Where most skip bins have no access or provide only a lowered wall at the rear, out skips have a fully-openable back that enables customers to walk right into them. This means:
    • Easier access
    • More efficient loading
    • Less chance of injury
