Unique Business Opportunity

Unique Business Opportunity

Since   1984  we have been running our own business.  We have raised three children, had holidays, cars, houses and followed the dreams that  most Australian families do.  Now, a combination of on-going health problems and as  our grandchildren have started arriving  we have decided to shed the busiest portion of our business – the skips bins –  downsizing to  just our garden bag runs and operating the hook bin truck several days a  week.   John has also decided he wants to work on his golf swing and explore the country in his caravan!

Our sub-contractor  of 10+ years has taken over a third of our skip bins and we are looking to sell the other portion as a business start up. This is the perfect chance to get into the skip bin industry with all the stock and as much knowledge, polices, ideas, personalized computer program, as you want without the hefty start up and ongoing franchise fees.

Our bins suit the house hold, retail and commercial market with their unique ability to be dropped not only on standard driveways or footpaths but also under carports, in garages, under shopping centre car parks, up back yards and down long narrow driveways.

These are  unique skip bins.   Watch out – several Brisbane companies have since unsuccessfully tried to copy these  bins – they cannot collapse and be stacked so their advantage is lost.

Why are these bins so good? 

  • The style of bins give us the ability to  offer a Fill to Level service which our clients love – they are only paying for the volume of rubbish they have.
  • These bins come as one size with the ability to add 2 cubic m more with sides or offer less volume with the level markings on the inside. You never run out of any size bin. Many clients start off thinking they have 2 cubic m of waste but ring the next week having filled the bin and paying for 4 or 6 cubic m.  They upsize themselves!
  • The ability to collapse (fold) and stack the bins ensures that your storage space is kept to the minimum and allows you to deliver up to 3 bins on one trip- saving fuel & time.
  • The bin is off the ground by 5 cm- resting on 4 rollers.  This ensures the grass or driveways are not damaged when dropping or lifting the bins.
  • The rollers on the bins have brakes which can be adjusted for slopes and allow the bin to be pushed (when empty) into position. The winch system on the truck allows the bins to be pulled out and back on to the truck.
  • The bin is made of a metal base and metal skeleton sides. The container has industrial corflute sides which give a strong yet lightweight bin. The corflute is easily replaced if required but in our experience lasts for years and years.   We have had over 3 tonne of weight in a bin with no problems – however the winch system and our light weight trucks cannot legally cope with the weight – thus the weight limitations.
  • The small trucks used for this bin system need only standard car licenses, and cost less to maintain, fuel up, register and insure then the standard skip bin s trucks. This gives you an added advantage in pricing.
  • The door on the back allows easy access to the bins – clients can wheel in their white goods, (fridges washing machines etc) and pack their rubbish to get the best value for their money. (Nothing a client likes better)  A typical metal bin with sloping sides and no door make it very hard to load and has a lot of wasted space.
  • Tradies love the bins – example kitchen installers, ground maintenance people and light renovations.
  • Transportable.  There is no reason why this business cannot be set up anywhere.

This business will suit you if

  • You enjoy choosing your own life and business life style.
  • Your family can be involved – (our whole family has been involved from office work to skip bin truck driving)   Great to provide employment for extended  family
  • You are interested in recycling. We started a recycling centre –  read the story here. The treasures that come in bins are amazing.  If a skip bin has vintage or retro treasure we sell them either on  the facebook page or via a vintage second hand seller we know. All monies we receive from these sales we donate to charity – however for the right business owner that would be a fun income stream.
  • You live in a large enough community to support skip bins. (large regional towns or cities)
  • You will operate outside South Brisbane -Ipswich and Logan areas . We have promised our subbie we would sell outside that limit and we always keep our word.
  • You can access a storage yard for the bins. As the bins stack in piles you will not need much area and many dumping facilities offer skip bin storage for free.
  • You can do minor welding and maintenance. We recommend the skip bins are checked over for safety at regular intervals and they sometimes require minor repairs.
  • Optional – Computer program purchase directly from the programmer. You can find a skip bin data base program on the commercial market – however we have had a very simple database created and you can purchase it from the computer programmer directly.   It creates   client lists, creates ,  email invoices with appropriate attachments,  can extend bin time frames and add extras (days, weight surcharges etc)  It tracks where all your bins are at any one time  and produces daily drivers run sheets,  as well as  lists of all sorts  – invoices, income etc  Its a one off cost without the typical on going subscriptions others offer.
  • You like giving good customer service.
  • You are (or someone in the family is) good with business essentials. Over the years we have seem more small businesses in many industries (service, retail etc) fail.  It is not the business that is the issue – its how it is managed. We can load you up on policies and procedures that have worked successfully for us – but you will need to follow up. Example- the website, advertising and working closely with an accountant are  the back-end  to dropping and collecting skip bins and by ticking all the boxes this is a business that gives a very good income stream.

We can sell as one or both  packages.

Current prices for our 6 cubic skip bin (in Brisbane) are $270 so just 10 bins a week will start a decent income generation.

Huge possibilities for recycling  – and good pickings for vintage and retro items as well as the basics of metals, batteries and typical household goods.  These skip bins are typically  used for  people moving house/ separation/ moving interstate or overseas   so often “good” stuff is dumped in the hurry to move.

All equipment currently located in Brisbane.

Interested?  Have a look at our website    therubbishremovers.com.au *  and google our reviews for The Rubbish Removers.

*We have scaled down our business to just Garden bags and Hook bins however we still advertise the Lite bins on our website on behalf of our colleague / ex-subbie who has taken over the Lite bins operations in South Brisbane area.
