How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Skip Bag? - Pink Bins

Pink Bins has been in the waste management biz since 2005, so it’s safe to say that we know the industry, and we have a pretty good idea of what Kiwis just like you are looking for when it comes to their waste management needs.

These days, if you’re looking for an easy way to ditch your junk, you can’t go wrong with a skip bag – they pack a big punch in time and space and suit any house or work site! 

The holy grail for anyone wanting to get rid of large quantities of rubbish. Skip bags can be a much easier and cheaper option than a traditional skip bin, particularly if you’re short on space, and let’s face it, most of us Aucklanders are (no shade to skip bins, they still have their uses). 

Comparing Prices: How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Skip Bag? 

Around here, we’re always Thinking Pink, so we call our skip bags Pink Bags, but it doesn’t really matter what you call them, you want to know how much it costs to use one!

Unlike hiring a metal skip bin, when you purchase a skip bag you can have it delivered, and then fill it up at your leisure, there’s no set hire period. Smash out your cleanup over the weekend, or fill up your skip bag over the next year – it doesn’t matter to most providers how long you hold onto one of their skip bags! 

Whenever you’re finished with your bag, simply let your bag provider know and they’ll come take your waste off your hands (or your lawn, as the case may be).

Of course, the prices of skip bags can vary based on several factors, including the size of the skip bag, the location within Auckland, the company you choose, and any additional services or fees that they might charge.

Let’s compare prices:

We know it can be a drag, scouring the internet searching for waste management companies that offer skip bags, working out if they even collect within Auckland, and determining who will give you the best bang for your buck! 

No worries, mate! We know you’ve got plenty of other things you’d rather be doing (like cheering on the boys in black with an ice-cold bevvy in hand), that’s why we’ve done the hard work for you! We’ve compared the skip bag services and prices of Auckland-based skip bag suppliers so that you can decide which option is best for you.

*It’s worth noting that these waste management skip bag prices are correct at the time of publishing, but may be subject to changes and promotional offers. We’ll do our best to keep this updated, unfortunately, we don’t have a crystal ball, so feel free to do your own research into skip bag hire prices in your area, if you’re looking for a skip bag in the future.

Other factors to consider

You’ll see in our comparison table that we haven’t just compared the prices of skip bags, we’ve also compared weight limits and sizes. After all, the cheapest option isn’t always the biggest, or the best value (Cadbury chocolate blocks, we may be looking at you). We can help you work out the best size or weight limit for your needs so that you can choose the right bin with the confidence of a 4-year-old in a Batman cape. 

If you need your waste removed by a certain date, ask your skip bag company how long it takes for them to collect. For example, once you let us know you’re ready to go, Pink Bins will collect your Pink Bag within seven days, so you know it’ll be gone within the week. Some providers may take longer, so if you’re already sick of the sight of unsightly rubbish, choose a provider with a quick collection service, or else you may have to grin and bear it for a while longer. 

If you’d like to ensure your waste is being disposed of responsibly, you’ll also want to look out for a skip bag provider that sorts the waste they collect and has a system for recovering recyclable materials. If you can’t find any information on their website, you might like to ask what your skip bag provider does with your rubbish

If you want to do the right thing for the environment, avoid any companies that send everything straight to the landfill, and go with a company that will sort through the contents of your skip bag – like us!

The best skip bag for YOU

While some skip bag companies may look cheaper at first glance, you might end up spending much more in the end, once they’ve tacked on any additional fees for your location, and the type and quantity of waste you’d like them to take. You might not be in the right area to take advantage of their prices, or you might only be able to put certain waste in their skip bags and still be left with a load of rubbish to take to the dump.

While Pink Bins prices may be on the higher end of our comparison chart, we can also accommodate a heavier bag. So even if your bag is chock-a-block, it’s unlikely there’ll be any extra charges when we come to collect your load, and it will likely work out cheaper for you at the end of the day. 

To ensure you have the best experience, it’s always a good idea to check the Google reviews of the company you’re purchasing from. Keep an eye out for a lack of reviews (this doesn’t mean the company isn’t any good, but they might not be super experienced), and of course, avoid anywhere with lots of reviews and a low average star rating.
