To ensure that you will be able to secure the Skip Bin Size that you need for your project, we strongly recommend booking your bin in advance, given that Easter Weekend is traditionally one of the most popular long weekends for bin hire and some bins might be out of stock.  As we are still some three weeks away from Easter Weekend, now is a perfect time to give us a call on 1300 605 624 to work out what size bin you might require, discuss with us Waste Type, get a quote on a Council Permit, should your bin be required to be placed on a Road or a Nature Strip.

What Size Skip Bin Do I Need?

One of the most frequently asked questions when booking a skip is about the skip size. As bins are measured in cubic meters, there are various ways to estimate the right Skip Bin Size for your Project.  One of the ways is to stockpile your unwanted waste in your front yard or other convenient place and estimate the width, lentgh and height of your pile.  To calculate the Volume in Cubic Meters, first convert your width, lentgh and height measurements into meters and multiply them: w x l x h = Cubic Meters.  Then Jump on our Bins Page, where all skip bins are shown with Dimensions and try to match your estimate to our bin sizes.  Another option to give us a call on 1300 605 624 and we can assist you to select the right bin size for your project.  If in doubt - always go to one size bigger than you think as not only it works out cheaper per cubic meter when you order bigger bins but also you will avoid overfilling the bin should you underestimate the skip size you need.  In our experience, over 80% of customers under-estimate the skip size they need and end up ordering an additional smaller bin.

We offer all bin sizes in our stock, from a mini skip of 2 cubic meters, all the way up to 31 cubic meter large walk in bin, we cater for all waste types and will be happy to assist you with any advice on which waste type will be most suitable to your project.

How Long Can I Keep A Skip Bin For?

We are offering Skip Bin Hire between 1 day to 7 days without any additional charges. In addition to that, if your bin hire falls over the Long Easter Weekend, we will not be counting the public holidays and you can have the bin for a few days longer, so that you can fill it at your leasure and still enjoy your weekend! 

Other factors to consider when deciding on the long bin hire is whether the bin is being placed on your property, such as driveway or your front yard or whether the skip will be placed on a council property, such as road or a nature strip (if your council allows nature strip). In a case of placing a bin on a council property, the length of bin hire will be impacted by the length of your city council permit.  Some councils issue permits for up to 7 days for the same price (like Bayside, Glen Eira, Kingston and other councils) while other councils are charging per day of hire, such as City of Melbourne, City of Yarra, City of Port Phillip and others.  For an advice about your council permit - give us a tinkle on 1300 605 624 and we'll be able to give you an instant quote on a council permit and the lengh of time they are issued for.  We also apply and organise your council permits for you, so there is absolutely nothing you have to worry about.  As we are a registered supplier with most City Councils in Melbourne, we can apply for permit on a same day as your Bin Delivery and be completely compliant.

When and How Do I Pay For A Skip Bin

Should you be booking your skip bin online via our secure website, you will be paying at the same time of order, our website accepts Visa and Master Card payments.  Should you opt for booking your skip over the phone with us - we process payment over the phone, with Visa, Master Card and also American Express.  One last option when ordering over the phone is to request to pay via EFT, in which case we would email you an invoice and would need to receive payment prior to the pickup of the bin.  For any other questions please don't hesitate to contact us.
