Dont trust Skip Bins they are scammers
Well when you order the bin and you are not a tradie or cant predict weight you should be well informed of the weight limit. Not be told over the phone the bin comes with 1000kg but not be told anything over the 1000kg will have penalties or that their skips are not allowed to carry over 1000kg even though the skips are large enough for basically light crap only. My bin was ordered for a bathroom reno. Tiles and bricks. Had they been honest and up front about skip bin and weight excess I would not have chosen them. But after they take my cre...dit card and tell me all is good for bathroom reno and never explain 35 cents per kilo overweight excess, I was hit with a 231 dollar bill. They also take this money without your permission. You explain the situation but I highly recommend you do not use Mobile Skips if you have any bathroom reno. I wasnt able to put in my shower my spa the basin and toilet into the bin and i was overweight by 600kgs. I would have another 250kgs to 350kgs left when my tiler finishes. How on earth these guys are allowed to get away by just taking your 500 dollars without being upfront is my issue. The terms and conditions were sent to me after making payment in an attached email which showed the cost. They claim I should have read it before the delivery. Well its a bit hard when you book it and get the paperwork after the fact and were never told the weight excess during the booking call. The Terms and conditions should be explained before the booking which is my major gripe. Find any other skip business and you will have no weight limit nor the 2 days fill it up and see you later excuses I got or the penalty was another 15 dollars a day. This was provided to me over the phone. Funny the cheaper section was provided but not the weight excess.

Fast and supportive service
Chris was very quick in delivering the skip, even a day early. When we'd done, it was all collected with no fuss. We'd certainly use them again: it's perfect for smaller jobs. Good support and follow up.
Z grade. No skip, no calls.
Booked one for today to fit in with trades and labourers
Was given 0700 to 1000 window by Mobile Skips
No skip by 1130, so called their 1300 number to find out what was going on.
Spoke to a nice lady in a call centre somewhere. Message was basically that I would need to wait for skip to turn up and to call back if it did not arrive.
Waited until 1330 and called again. A garbled explanation that skip was ‘on the way’ but i could not be given a delivery time.
I cancelled the job at this point, paid off my tradies, and will make arrangement with s...

This is an overpriced rip off
This turned out to be way more expensive than your average skip. I was massively penalised for being over 1000kg, and yet my skip was not even half full. I regret being fooled by the added convenience. If you have anything remotely heavy to throw away, I would recommend a standard skip company any time.

- Mobile Skips NSW, Sydney
I recently hired a mobile skip through the local Bunnings store. I made a mistake by not comparing the pricing. After I was charged $105 on my credit card for apparent excess weight. I had to take the word from the company regarding the extra weight and no control regarding the weighing process. I did very basic research afterwards and found that I could have hired a bigger skip for more than double the weight allowance for about 2/3 of the cost the Mobile Skips charged. Bingo quoted $350 for a 2 tonne skip for 14 days. I paid $560 with Mobile skips!!
Do you research and avoid being burned like me
