FAQs & Other Options

What trash removal options are there?

Throw it over your neighbour’s fence

You’ll save some money but loose some friends

 

Use Trash Taxi

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?
There are several reasons:

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.

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?
No problem. Just give me a call and I can usually give a reasonally accurate estimate over the phone. Once I get there and see the trash I’ll give you a fixed price before loading
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?
No, sorry. We are not set up to keep the furniture in good condition. However the Salvos will often come and pick items up
Can you move furniture from one house to another?
No, sorry – for the same reason as above. However you can try:
