The 4 Waste Skip Bin Sizing Difference

The 4 Waste Skip Bin Sizing Difference

Whether you’ve hired a skip bin before or not, you’ll be well aware of the ease they provide in terms of rubbish removal. For large quantities of rubbish, there simply is no better removal option available. As such, the popularity of skip bins in Brisbane continues to grow, as does the competition.

We’ve been in the rubbish removal industry since 1999 and have been servicing Brisbane Southside with quality skip bins for more than a decade. But at 4 Waste, we like to do things a little differently than other skip bin companies in Brisbane. While our skip bins themselves look different to other skip bins in Brisbane, they’re also billed differently to other skip bins.

Today, we examine the 4 Waste Skip Bin sizing difference, which leads to our unique billing structure.

4 Waste Skip Bin Sizing

Like most skip bin companies in Brisbane, you can hire any size skip bin to meet your rubbish requirements from 4 Waste Removals. Our skip bins are suitable for two to twenty cubic metres of waste. However, the first thing to understand about our skip bin sizing is that all our skip bins only come in two sizes, six cubic meters and eight cubic meters.

Regardless of which size skip bin you order from 4 Waste, we will deliver either a 6m3 skip bin or an 8m3 skip bin to your premises, and this is where a lot of customers get confused, so please take note.

If you order a 4m3 skip bin, we will deliver a 6m3 skip bin. This does not mean you get to fill a 6m3 skip bin for the price of a 4m3 skip bin. It means you can load the skip up to the clearly marked 4m3 fill level, which you have paid for. It also means you can load beyond the 4m3 level if you find you have more waste than you realise, but you will be charged the difference(see 4 Waste Skip Bin Billing, below). The critical thing to understand here is, if you need to fill beyond the level you ordered, the difference charged is substantially less than hiring a second skip bin, so it is very cost-effective for you.

If you hire a 18m3 skip bin, you will receive three 6m3 skip bins. We can deliver them all at once or consecutively, replacing the skip each time it is filled. The choice is yours.

4 Waste Skip Bin Billing

As our skip bin sizes are different, so too is our skip bin billing. As mentioned above, our skip bins are clearly marked with fill levels at each cubic metre so you can track how much waste/rubbish you place into them.

If you paid for a 4m3 skip bin, you’re right to fill the skip to the 4m3 level without any excess charges applying (excluding any excess weight charges). However, more often than not, you’ll underestimate the among of rubbish you have and find that it won’t all fit in the skip. This isn’t a problem with 4 Waste Skip Bins.

Because you receive a 6m3 or an 8m3 skip bin regardless of the size skip bin you paid for at the time of order, you can continue filling the skip till you dispose of all your waste. You will receive an invoice for the additional waste placed into the skip, which is MUCH cheaper and quicker than hiring a second skip bin.

If we continue using a 4m3 skip bin as an example and assume you loaded a 6m3 full, the excess waste charge invoiced will be the cost of a 6m3 minus the 4m3 skip bin that you have already paid for. So, the total for the additional 2m3 of waste will be $375.00 (6m3) – $299.00 (4m3) = $76.00. The total cost for 6m3 of rubbish with 4 Waste Removals will always be $375.00.

If you were to hire your skip bins from another skip bin company, you would need to hire a separate 2m3 skip bin. The cost would be $299.00 (the cost of the 4m3 skip bin) plus $275.00 for the second 2m3 skip bin. So, the total with other skip bin companies would be $299.00 (4m3) + $275.00 (2m3) = $549.00

$549.00 is a lot more than $375.00.

By hiring your skip bin from 4 waste Removals, you’re saving yourself $174.00 on this example alone, and the savings are more significant as the skip bin size increases.
