How high can I fill the skip bin?

Please fill to the rim. This is very important as it is illegal to transport overloaded bins. Your bin cannot be collected if overfilled.

Where can I place the bin?

As a general rule, the skip bin needs to be placed on private property. This includes most driveways if they are within the boundaries of your property. Your driveway needs to be at least 3 metres wide for a standard truck to fit into the driveway. You should also ensure there are no power lines or trees that may hinder the access and placement of the bin at time of delivery. If you think that access may be difficult, feel free to discuss the location of the skip bin with us as we have smaller trucks available for more difficult access. Please note that if you need us to place the bin off your property, such as on a footpath or nature strip, you will need to check with your local council as you may require a permit.

How long can I keep the skip bin?

We usually allow for one week hire, if you require the bin for longer just contact us to let us know, it may include extra charges. Also if filled earlier, you can contact us for collection.

How much notice do I need to give when ordering a skip bin?

Geta Skip will be able to deliver a skip bin within 24hrs of ordering, however, we suggest skip bins are booked as far in advance as possible to ensure you are able to get a skip bin that best meets your requirements and times.

How do I pay for the skip bin?

When you make your booking we will ask for your credit card over the phone for payment. We also accept cash payments to the driver upon delivery. Account applications are available for builders.

What happens if someone else fills my bin?

Unfortunately you are responsible for the skip bin from delivery to collection, we suggest you place the bin within your property and consider placing a tarp over it when not in use, we also recommend that you book the skip bin for the days you intend on using it.

Can we request to have the bin delivered on the road?

Should you wish to place the bin on the road it will be necessary for you, the property owner to make an application for a permit with the local council where the skip bin is to be delivered to.

Will the skip bin damage my driveway or grassed area?

Generally no, however there is always a risk. Should you have concerns we do recommend that you provide 2 or 3 lengths of timber no less than 2 metres in length to be placed under the skip bin if your driveway is painted, stamped or tiled. As for your grassed area, keep in mind that the skip bin delivery trucks are 4 tonne and over in weight, should your ground be soft or drenched there is a large possibility that the skip bin trucks will leave tyre impressions & placing the skip bin on the lawn will also cause impression marks. We would like to ensure you that our drivers make every effort to take all possible care with the placement of the skip bin.
