12. What happens if a skip bin is over loaded? It is illegal for us to transport skip bins that are overloaded or if we cannot securely cover the bin and its content.
We ask our customers to not fill the bin beyond the top rim for this purpose.
If a skip bin is overloaded or filled over the top rim of the bin, the driver may remove the content and leave it next to the skip, and then remove the bin.
If the driver is unable to remove an overloaded skip that is too heavy to lift onto our trucks, our staff will contact the customer to make alternative arrangements. These arrangements may include providing the customer with another skip for the overloaded waste items. Extra charges may apply.
Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about overloading a skip, we are more than happy help.

13. Is there an additional charge if the skip bin is required for longer? Yes. Additional charges apply if a skip is required for more than the standard seven day hire period. Extra charges depend on the additional time required and if the bin is needed for another customer. Need a skip bin for longer than seven days? Contact us in advance to make alternative arrangements and reduce extra charges.

14. Do any of your skip bins have a ramp or a door? Yes. Drop down doors are available for skip bins 3m3 and above.
