Skip bins are everywhere. From construction sites, home renovations to general waste removal, it seems the everywhere you look there’s a min-skip, or skip bin. It’s not surprising then that in Australia, the skip bin rental market is worth $3-billion.
Market leaders such as Veolia Environmental Services, Cleanaway Waste Management and J.J. Richards & Sons take a chunk of this amount with commercial waste removal contracts. There is, however, still plenty of room for local operators, who provide services to small business and households.

Online Bookings and Enquiries
Enabling your customers to book your bins online not only makes it easy for them, but removes the administrative overhead of answering countless phone calls and replying to endless emails.
Check Bin Availability
Hire-X will check the availability of the selected bin size for the desired date range while your customer is browsing your webshop. They’ll receive a message saying ‘This item may not be available on these dates’. They have the option to choose other dates, choose another bin size, or contact you for an alternative.
Easily Manage Your Deliveries
With a powerful task management tool built-in, you can easily schedule your deliveries and pick-ups. You can assign deliveries to different drivers, have them attach photos and record important details, such as waste disposal fees, all on their mobile or tablet. This way you’ll never miss an important delivery and ensure you keep your customers happy, plus you maximise the revenue from each and every skip bin you rent out.
Offer Tiered Pricing
With Hire-X you can offer your customers discounted prices based on the duration of their hire. Tiered pricing for your skip bins enables you to set different rates for the following periods of time:
Day (1-6 Days)
Week (7-13 Days)
Fortnight (14-29 Days)
Month (30-89 Days)
3-Month (90+ Days)
Set Pricing Options
We know that daily pricing is not suitable for every company, that’s why Hire-X offers the option to set specific hire periods. If you base your pricing on weekly blocks you can configure Hire-X to display pricing based on a 7-day period, rather than a daily rate.
In addition to checking the availability of your mini skip, or skip bins before a customer places an order, Hire-X lets you see all your upcoming orders on the handy calendar. You can also see the status of upcoming orders using the colour-coded event blocks.
