What does skip bin hire cost?

We get hundreds of calls a week from customers looking for skip bin hire. After all, skip bin hire is our business.

Often the customer is hiring a skip bin for the first time is unfamiliar with skip bin hire costs.

We always take the time to explain to the customer that skip bin hire costs depend on the following:

  • Skip bin size
  • Waste type going in the skip bin
  • The location of where the skip bin will be delivered.

Like most services these days, customers are expecting great value for money. We like to ensure our customers up-front that our prices are very competitive and we  aim to keep our costs low.

Our skip bin hire costs include the following factors: travel time (for our driver's to deliver and pick up the skip bin to the Melbourne location); sorting of the customer's waste once the skip bin is returned to our site; tip/transfer station fees which include EPA levies.

Once we have factored all of the above variables into our pricing equation, we can determine cost effective skip bin prices for our customers.

To give you a pricing example: a customer based in Richmond, Melbourne looking to hire a 6m3 skip bin to dispose of office-type waste (carboard, plastic, paper) can expect to pay roughly $350 including GST for a skip bin on their site.

Big Bin Hire is based in Williamstown and services most Melbourne suburbs. Our skip bin sizes range from 4-20m3 and they are all walk-in bins to ensure loading ease.
