It can be difficult to determine whether a rubbish removal company is right for you, especially if time is pressing and you need household rubbish removal now.
You don't want to spend hours on the internet comparing website after website.
In this article, we have compiled 8 simple questions to help you become confident in picking the right rubbish removal services.
The 8 Questions To Ask Before Hiring A Rubbish Removal Company
1. Does the company have positive customer reviews for rubbish removal-type jobs?
Word of mouth is the best way to determine whether a company delivers on their promises. Check what people are saying about the business online.
For example, at All Gone Rubbish Removals, our team is proud of our track record and our customer reviews speak for themselves. Our customer service is our greatest asset, and we encourage our customers to leave honest reviews on our online presence. Unlike others, we don't pay for or collect fake reviews to pad out ratings. Every single review, comment and star rating is from a real, satisfied customer.
Our customers also have diverse needs, from spring cleaning to hauling away construction debris and scrap metal, to even removing white goods and office rubbish removal, so you can trust that a company like All Gone Rubbish Removals, with over 100 reviews at 4.8 stars, know what they are doing.
2. Does the rubbish removal company clearly display their contact information on their website?
Some companies seem to make it hard for you to contact them. Why? Well, we don't know either.
If you need a same-day rubbish collection service that offers everything from mattresses to green waste to other junk around the house, you need to be able to contact them immediately.
3. Do they offer to remove the types of waste you need gone?
Do you know for sure whether the rubbish removal company you're looking at even takes away the waste items you have in mind? Do you know if your local council will take the garbage on your front lawn?
A good rubbish removal business will make it clear what kind of materials they do and do not take, providing a level of convenience and satisfaction for your value for money. After all, how frustrating would it be to have only half of your rubbish taken away?
Our team can handle the following:
- carpet disposal
- deceased estate
- furniture removal
- garden and green waste
- mattress disposal
- fridge and appliance removal
- kitchen stripouts and demolition
- bathroom stripouts and demolition
- building and construction rubbish removal
- office rubbish removal.
All Gone Rubbish Removals also disposes of hazardous materials, such as paint and batteries, though if you have hazardous waste it is always best to call the team before booking. Due to the nature of these materials, disposal does cost a little extra and may require extra equipment, but it is a small price to pay knowing that your hazardous materials are being disposed of carefully, safely and responsibly for the environment.
4. Do they service your area, and are they willing to come to your location at a fair price?
Are you certain that the rubbish removal businesses you are looking at will even come to your local area, and if so, will they charge for the distance?
Our website lists all of our service areas, so you can be certain that we can come to you with no problem. All of our quotes are upfront. They will never change once they have been agreed on.
Some companies, however, may have hidden fees and charges, which can be an unfortunate surprise when it comes time for payments after the pickup.
5. What's the pricing structure they offer?
Do you know exactly how much you will be paying when you book? You only have to check the reviews of other rubbish removal companies to see that sometimes the agreed-upon price is changed at the last minute because of hidden fees. With your rubbish already on the truck, arguing against the rearranged terms is hard.
All Gone Rubbish Removals offers upfront quotes so that you are never surprised. During the quote, tell us what you need gone, and we will give you a precise number as our experienced team handles the rest.
6. How does the rubbish removal company dispose of the rubbish?
When it comes to saying goodbye to your old waste, you may wonder where exactly it is going. Landfill is an increasing problem, as more and more of our waste gets pushed underground to break down over hundreds or thousands of years. While, inevitably, some waste does have to go to landfill, much, much more can and should go into recycling.
Our goal with waste removal is to recycle as much as possible, making All Gone Rubbish Removals the responsible name in the industry. We sort each load on-site, and our team's experience means that anything from your trash or clutter that can be recycled will be recycled, giving your things a second life outside of the rubbish tip.
7. How big are the trucks the company offers?
When looking at your rubbish, what size vehicle do you think is required to take it all away in one, single hassle-free load?
Our experienced team can take care of those details for you. Our trucks come in multiple sizes, so you never have to pay more than you need to. Our smaller vehicles are designed to get into tight spaces, so simply tell us what you need and we will bring the right truck.
We have the equipment and know-how to handle any rubbish removal job of any size. We take pride in our work and competitive prices, even for complicated jobs. Whether your rubbish is in the backyard, the garage or even upstairs in your apartment, our team can quickly and efficiently remove your waste.
Our rubbish removal experts will even clean up the space after we have finished, helping you with the tidying or moving process. Our large trucks can usually handle any amount of rubbish in one job.
8. What are the company's hours of operation?
By the time you get around to searching rubbish removal companies, you more than likely want your rubbish gone yesterday. You don't want to wait around for a booking; if you're only available on weekends, you might be waiting a while.
Not so with All Gone Rubbish Removals, as we offer a 7-day service. If you have a tight schedule, we can even offer a same-day rubbish removal service if you call us and book before 2 pm.
This helps keep your front yard clear and clean, with no need for skip bins and no chance of risking a council fine for unintentional dumping.
When To Hire A Rubbish Removal Company vs Relying On Regular Council Pick-up...
Rubbish removal is always the no-fuss answer.
While most councils have a rubbish removal service, it is subject to their own schedules. Each council in Australia will have different rules and times to pick up rubbish. If you need your rubbish removed in a pinch, this may not be an option for you. After all, no one wants old chairs and tables outside your place or a skip bin destroying your front lawn.
If time is pressing, like when you're moving house or having a large cleanout, and your front lawn is filled with unwanted furniture and rubbish, calling a rubbish removal company makes much more sense. Some companies, like All Gone Rubbish Removals, even offer a same-day waste collection service.
Waiting for the council also comes with a risk, especially if you are moving. Dumping fines are a real possibility if your local council believes you are dumping waste, even if you simply leave it outside your property during your house move.
