Need a Skip Bin?

There’s no reason for you to struggle with heavy bags or overflowing bins when you have a skip bin, and they’re great for both home and commercial removals. If you’re in need of a skip bin for hire, ask your skip bin company about their pick-up and removal services.

Different Sizes of Skip Bins

Always make sure that you’ve chosen the right size of skip bin for what you need. If you really aren’t sure, opt for a larger size than the one you think you might need rather than risk overflowing the bin. Also measure the area where you intend to place the skip bin first to make sure there’s more than enough space for installation and pick-up when the bin is full.

As a quick guide, here are the standard sizes.

Different Skip Bin Types

Of course all skip bins aren’t considered the same! There are different types of skip bins out there, each suited to a different type of waste or use. To make things easier for your commercial and home skip bin hire needs, here’s a quick run-through of the available skip bin types out there.

  • The Marrel
    When people traditionally think of a skip bin, it’s usually the Marrel type of bin that they’re imagining. It’s the most common type of skip bin out there, and it’s suited to most types of general waste that you’ll ever need removed. This makes it perfect for most general waste removal needs, or for anyone who isn’t sure what their exact needs are.
  • The Hooklift
    The Hooklift skip bin is named after the large hooks that allow chains to be hooked through for the skip bin to be lowered during installation, and picked up again during the collection phase. These are usually much larger than Marrel skip bins, and can handle a little more weight. Oh, they’re also called “walk-ins” – and they’re ideal for any of your heavy-duty removal needs.
  • The Mobile
    Mobile skip bins are a more portable type of skip bin than the ones we’ve mentioned above, and these are usually used for smaller home removals or regular removals for small businesses who don’t need as much space as a Marrel or Hooklift has to offer. Sometimes, smaller is better – and if you don’t have enough waste to warrant a Marrel, get a Mobile instead.
