Definition of Large Items
Large items are just that — big, unwieldy appliances and pieces of furniture that we want to replace but don't have the equipment to get rid of easily. Say the fridge or washer has died, or you're updating that old sofa or bed frame. These household items generally require 2 to 3 (at least) strong people to lift, and they don't dismantle easily. For offices, you might think of old photocopiers, desk fittings or cabinets.
Benefits of Rubbish Removal
Large items take up space in the garage or house, and the recurring costs of rental storage can bite. So why not get rid of those large and unwanted items permanently? Calling a professional rubbish removal company means reclaiming lost space and saving money in the long run. One call and those unwanted appliances and furniture are history.
Types of Rubbish Removal Services
Rubbish removal services are an efficient way to dispose of your commercial or residential unwanted large items. Some companies, like All Gone Rubbish Removals, even offer same-day pickup and removal, depending on the type of large item and the size of the truck needed.
Local council collections might be another option, depending on where you live. Some councils won't take certain items, or may only collect those items on specific days. Unfortunately, it also means you have to move those large items outside by yourself!
Cost of Rubbish Removal
The cost of rubbish removal can vary depending on the weight, size and volume of the rubbish. Please see our FAQs below for a more detailed breakdown of the approximate costs of rubbish removal in the Sydney area.
Environmental Impact of Rubbish Removal
No matter the rubbish, we should always strive to reuse and recycle as much of our waste as possible and dispose of the rest ethically and responsibly. White goods in particular can cause a severe environmental impact if they are not properly disposed of. Some white goods contain toxic metals and materials. Others, such as fridges and freezers, contain refrigerants. These can cause damage to the ozone layer if they leak.
How to Find a Rubbish Removal Company
The best way to find out whether a rubbish removal company is equipped to dispose of your large items is to call them or look through their website. Large items require the right equipment and personnel to handle and remove safely, so it is always best to call and detail exactly what you want disposed of and when.
Bookings are simple. Call Aaron on 0427 783 277 to discuss your large rubbish removal needs, so the right people, equipment and truck for your job can be sent out as soon as possible.
All Gone Rubbish Removals offers a no-obligation estimated quote before the booking is finalised. Our availability also extends to same-day collection if you call before 2pm, depending on the specific items you need removed.
Commonly Disposed of Large Items
Large items that are commonly disposed of include items that have broken down, become damaged, or are simply old in style or quality and need replacing. These include broken-down white goods, such as washing machines, fridges, dishwashers, and other electronics and appliances.
Cabinets, wardrobes, bookshelves and chests of drawers are also commonly disposed of. Couches and sofas, lounges, or bed frames are also commonly thrown away after some time. Large items may also include torn-up or old carpets or rugs.
What to Consider When Disposing of Large Items
Disposing of an old sectional couch or modular sofa can seem like a daunting task. Items this large might feel like they need to be taken to the tip in sections or broken up with tools to fit them in a skip bin or in the back of a trailer.
Tips for Safe and Efficient Rubbish Removal
Whenever you move large items, always seek help from other people, especially if you are either moving items from high places or lifting these items into a truck or trailer. Accidents can happen very easily with large, heavy items.
A modern French door fridge weighs anything between 110kg and 140kg, and a falling appliance like this can cause serious injury. The same goes for an average 3-seater couch, which can weigh 130kg or more. Hiring a team of professionals to handle the heavy lifting for you is almost always the better option.
Common Questions | FAQ | Average Cost of Rubbish Removal in Sydney
It can be difficult to know the best options for removing items, such as household furniture or white goods, from your home and business. They are often large, awkward to carry and very heavy. Below, we compile the average costs for different removal options for your large items in the Sydney area.
Q: What is the average cost of rubbish removal in Sydney?
A: The average rubbish removal cost in Sydney depends on the type of waste to be collected. For example, heavy construction waste can cost between $150–200 per cubic metre, regular household rubbish can cost between $75–99 per cubic metre, and office furniture and waste removals usually cost between $99–130 per cubic metre.
However, this can differ depending on ease of access to the site and the truck(s) and personnel required on the job. As such, it is always best to call and ask for a quote before you book a rubbish removal service.
Q: What is the average cost of skip bin hire in Sydney?
A: The average cost of skip bin hire in Sydney is $300–$400. These can be subject to council permits. This will cause you to pay more money, to do the moving yourself, and result in an eyesore of a skip full of large waste items sitting on your front lawn, taking up space and leaving a dead patch of grass when it's finally picked up! Skip bins also charge an overweight fee, so if you put in more than you said you would, even accidentally, you may accrue an additional fee when it comes time to collect.
Q: What is the average cost of a truck and trailer hire in Sydney?
A: The average cost of a truck and trailer hire in Sydney is $400–$500. It also means you have to do all the heavy lifting yourself or convince friends and family to help you out on the day.
