It’s often hard to determine how good the bin hire company you find online is.
Most likely you are a busy person, a homemaker, or working full time; which often makes it difficult to dispose of household rubbish on your own, particularly the hard ones. That’s why many people search for the ‘perfect’ skip bin providers, to efficiently remove those rubbish without getting into too much trouble.
There are a heap load of ‘professional’ or ‘local’ skip bin providers in web, which makes it even harder for a customer to make the best call. That’s why I’ve prepared this article, to give you a clear view on which factors you should consider before choosing your skip bin hire company.
1. Type of waste
The first thing to know while choosing a skip bin provider is if they process the type of waste you are generating. Depending on the type of rubbish, the kind of bins you choose will differ.
If you are dealing with batteries, chemicals, or other hazardous material then regular skip bins are not your solution. Waste is classified into different categories based on its composition. Make sure you go through the provider’s website to understand and know this information in detail.
2. Size of your skip/bin
You may need to remove a large quantity of rubbish or only a small amount. Not every company will have the correct sized skip you require. First, go through the sizes they offer thoroughly and calculate the skip size based on the volume of your garbage.
Size and price are directly dependent on one another, and keep in mind that transporting overflowing skip bins is illegal so it’s best to order one slightly larger than you think you will need.
3. Price comparison
Beware of being overcharged. Some companies may charge much more than the usual rate. The best way to filter out such companies is to carry out a price comparison.
Skip bins are not cheap. Make sure the company you choose, values your money. There are some who provide money back guarantee which allows you more security and peace of mind.
4. Online presence
Your time is your most valuable asset. There is no need to call a provider’s office to book their service. Many skip bin providers will allow you to book online or submit an enquiry form. Choose a skip bin provider who is providing you with these facilities.
The qualification of the staff that will be providing you with their service defines how well their work standard will be. They must be given proper health and safety training. Before hiring, ask if they have been provided with adequate training.
Take for example, asbestos. When removing waste materials like wall sheeting, gutters, floor tiles and fascias, there is the risk of exposure to asbestos. Having experienced staff is necessary as they will have right gear and takes proper precautions to avoid the risk of exposure.
6. Customer support
For any service, the customer support companies provide is critical. As the nature of waste varies, it is essential that you are able to contact them and get help if the need arises. A good skip bin hire service should be able to effectively and promptly respond to your queries.
7. Recycling policy
Failure to properly dispose of your rubbish can result in environmental pollution which can severely impact the earth. When choosing your skip bin hire service, make sure they have a recycling policy and ask if they have a recycling depot. Ensure that as much of your waste as possible is recycled and does not go to landfills.
8. Awards and reputation
Go to a reputable company who has a good record of excellent customer service. A reputable company will likely have testimonials on their website and may even have some reviews on Facebook and Google.
9. Proper bin placement
Before you choose a bin for hire to decide where you will be placing it. Also plan and talk to your supplier beforehand about where they will be able to put it. A good provider will be happy to help you.
