A good option
Hire a skip
They can be a good option, but be aware:
- Most skip companies charge $80-90 per m3 depending on the size of the bin
They charge extra for mattress, tyres and heavy weights
- If you want to put it on the nature strip you may need to pay extra for a permit
- Other people sometimes fill up your bin at night
- It can be hard to estimate exactly what size you require – too small or too big?
- It’s hard to fit in bulky items like couches
- You have to load the skip yourself

How can you be often cheaper than a skip when you have to load it as well?
I only visit a customer once per load (skips come twice – delivery and pickup)
I can separate goods that can be recycled so my tip costs are less
You only pay for what you need and not for the nearest size of skip bin
Do you do all the loading or do I have to help you?
We usually load everything ourselves. However if you want to help with the smaller items we usually don’t say no.
Can you give me an estimate of the cost?
How should I pack my trash to make it easier for you?
Keep the metal separate (if practical)
Don’t overfill boxes – if you can’t lift it neither can we
Try and keep some ‘order’ rather than just throwing everything into a messy pile
Do you take furniture to the Salvos, etc?
Can you move furniture from one house to another?
