How to get true value from your skip hire

Hiring a cheap skip hire isn’t the only way to get value from your skip bin. Granted, a cheap hire price helps, but true value from a skip bin comes down to a range of elements. This includes hiring the right size skip bin, not overfilling it and also packing the maximum junk in it.

Whether you’re a business owner or a homeowner, you must try and get true value from your skip bin hire. But how exactly do you go about doing this? Don’t worry, I’ll list out all the steps for you. As a skip bin supplier myself, I will offer you some tips on how to maximise your money’s worth. Listen up!

1. Cheap skip hire

Obviously, a cheap skip hire goes a long way towards getting value for money. At 4 Waste Removals, we understand this, and we offer skip bin rentals at really affordable prices. Our garden skip bins start upwards of $275, while our junk skip bins start upwards of $275 for 7-day hires. Moreover, we charge you on the amount of waste you fill into a bin and not for an entire bin. By hiring 4 Waste skip bins, you can get the maximum value for your money.

2. Hiring skip bin of the right size

Hiring the wrong size skip bin can prove to be costly. If you choose a bin larger than what you require, you’ll be paying too much. On the other hand, if you choose too small a bin, you’ll need to hire a second for the overflow. Both these cases prove to be much costlier than getting the right size bin to start with.

In addition to cheap skip hire, you must always choose a bin that is appropriately sized for your waste. This will mean estimating the amount of waste you have before you hire a skip. Alternatively, you can simply hire 4 Waste skip bins. We have a one-size-fits-all policy, and our bins are available only in standard sizes of 6m³ and 8m³. We charge you based on the amount of waste you fill in the bins – not for entire bins. This way, you need not worry about hiring a skip bin of the right size.

3. Not overfilling the skip

Australian regulations place height limitations on all skip bins. If you breach these limits, the waste removal company will advise you to remove excess waste before removing the skip. This means you will have to get another skip or find alternate methods to remove excess waste. By not overfilling, you can ensure that your cheap skip hire remains good value for money.

4. Packing for maximum space

You won’t get maximum value from a skip if you don’t pack your waste for maximum space. Leaving high air pockets will mean that you can only fit in half the waste you would have otherwise fit. By being conscious of how waste is packed, you can fit all waste into one bin. Moreover, with our skip bins, we charge you for the amount of waste you fill. By packing waste tightly, you will get maximum value from your cheap skip hire.

To pack for maximum space, always start loading a skip with some light items and load heavy items on top. This way, the heavier items will compress the lighter items below and create more space for you. However, do note that you should pack a few heavy items at the bottom to make the skip stable. If you have big junk items, try breaking them into smaller pieces so that fewer air pockets are created. Following these simple tips, you can pack your skip for maximum space.


To get the maximum value from your skip bin hire, you need to follow some basic tips. Try hiring cheap skip bins offering the best bang for your buck. Always hire a skip bin that is appropriately sized for the amount of waste you have. When filling a skip bin, do not overfill it. Finally, pack waste into a skip bin tightly to maximise space. These simple and easy-to-follow tips will ensure that you get value from your skip hire.
