Skip Bin Hire: How to Choose the Best Skip Hire Company - Pink Bins

Of course, reducing, reusing, and recycling waste is enormously important for our planet, but let’s be real; sometimes things have to be sent to the landfill and there is s#!t all we can do about it. 

If you’ve got a huge amount of rubbish to get rid of as the result of a renovation, a big clearout, a panic-clean before everyone turns up to celebrate the holidays at your house (we’re not here to judge, we’ve had to do that too!), or for any other reason whatsoever, then the easiest option for you to whip your space back into shape might be to hire a skip bin.

Skip Bin Hire: How to Choose the Best Skip Hire Company? 

At Pink Bins, we know that bigger is better, especially when it comes to skip bins. If you’re like us and you like big bins, you’ve come to the right place! 

Now, we won’t hold it against you if you’d like to check out some other skip bin suppliers before you commit to hiring one. 

…But which skip bin provider is right for you? And what should you be looking out for on your hunt for the perfect, big, beautiful, skip bin to hire? Let us help you work out what to look for to find the right skip bin hire company for you.

Price check

Sometimes the easiest way to narrow down your search is to compare prices. 

If you’ve ever walked into a store where nothing had a price tag, you know that feeling of assuming that everything is out of your budget. We’ve noticed that some skip bin providers are a bit cagey about their prices and you’ll have to reach out with your info to get a rough idea of the costs. That’s about as fun as driving in traffic and hitting all of the red lights, which is to say, not much fun at all – not to mention unnecessarily time-consuming.

We value transparency around here and we certainly don’t want to waste your time, but we like to think that we have rubbish collection options to suit everyone’s budget. You can check out our skip bin hire prices easily through the Quick Quote form on our website and find the option that suits your budget. 

If the cost is an issue for you, there are still options for hiring a skip bin! You’ll be pleased to hear that WINZ may be able to help you pay for your skip!

Size matters

No one likes it when they realise their skip bin isn’t big enough to get the job done – there’s nothing worse. Except maybe sandfly bites between your toes, or lemon juice in your eye… 

Anyway, we recommend that you have a go at estimating how much waste you’d like to get rid of and compare the sizes offered by different skip bin suppliers. If you have a huge amount of rubbish, you might be limited by skip bin suppliers who have bins big enough. On the flip side, if you don’t have too much to get rid of, you might run into the same issue – you may want to consider a skip bag like a Pink Bag instead of hiring a skip bin. Skip bags are a cost-effective solution and, as an added bonus, skip bags are also great if you’re short on space, or have restricted access, since they fit into tighter spaces than skip bins do. 

Availability and flexibility

Once you know what size skip bin you need, then it’s time to check availability at local skip bin hire companies. If you need the bin for a set amount of time, or on specific dates, you’ll want to find a hire company that can accommodate that for you. 


It’s easy to think that, once your rubbish is off your property, it’s not your problem anymore. But irresponsibly disposing of rubbish has a massive impact on our environment, so it’s important to choose a skip bin supplier who cares about our planet and who will keep sustainability in mind when they collect your waste. 

At Pink Bins, we want you to feel confident that we are disposing of your waste sensibly and recycling everything that still has life left in it. 18 years ago, we established our recycling facility in Manukau because we didn’t think skip bin suppliers were doing enough to divert resources from the landfill. At our recycling plant, our team goes through your waste, sends anything that hasn’t yet reached the end of its life to be recycled, and what’s left is disposed of responsibly in general refuse.

The eyesore factor 

Let’s be real, skip bins aren’t the prettiest to look at. Especially when they’re all beaten up, rusted and faded hues of brown. Sure, you may only have the bin onsite for a week or so, but you still have to look at it every day, so why not make it fun?! 

With our distinctive, fresh-looking, pink skip bins, Pink Bins are the less ugly way to utilise a skip. Who knows, you might even get some compliments and extra attention with one of our Pink Bins out the front of your place!
