What are Extra Charges?
Additional costs can be implemented as a result of a few things. Here’s a brief guide.
Keep in mind if you are yet to decide on a skip bin hire company, a supplier worth their salt should advise all the pricing elements for you, without question.
- Over Weight
Extra weight charges can apply where the weight of the waste material exceeds the prescribed measure for the specific bin type.
- Location Access
Additional costs may be applied if location and placement is out of area or problematic.
If your location is remote or based on land that is difficult to access it may be worth looking at alternatives.
- Permits Required
Some states and local councils require a permit for skips to be used and placed. Make certain you are up on all the permits required, or ask your Skip Bin Hire supplier for some advice.
They will be sure to tell you what requirements need to be met for your area.
- Tipping Fees
Extra charges may apply if the type or amount of waste needs to be specially tipped. Fees apply for the handling in such cases as well.
- Excess Retrieval Costs
Ensure you have your dates right for collection. Costs can add up if your supplier has to return at another time if your skip is not ready to go.
- Prohibited or Hazardous Waste
Disposal of particular material which requires specialist handling and disposal can be expensive. Usually, specially trained people are required.
Its best to ask your supplier before the skip is delivered so all your bases are covered.
Safety is paramount for the collectors. Any surprises in material type will lead to inevitable issues.
All additional costs will be fair and reasonable, and based on initial discussions. Remember you should know about all costs up front when you are dealing with a reputable supplier.
