Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and all that!

We've just had tenants move out of our rental and are looking at selling it.
Unfortunately there is a whole lot of crap left there.
eg.
Old basket ball hoop
some concrete from drive way repair
old rusted shelving
some garden waste
wood from a replaced fence.

I am looking for someone to take it to the tip for me - as in load the truck and take it all.

Any recommendations?

Thanks

Hire a skip, or one of those hire a hubby/home handy man people would probably do it for you. If you tell us where you are you may get more specific recommendations.

Check your local paper to see if you have a 'man with a van' advertising.  Does your local council offer a service like this (obviously at a cost)?  I've used Hire a Hubby for stuff before and they seem pretty reliable.

Yeah, seeing that I left off where I was, this was a dumb question.

Birkenhead/beachhaven north shore, Auckland.

Ive seen ads in the local courier, and will give one of them a go I guess.

There is probably a skip load, but I want/need someone to do the whole job.

SJS: hire a student for the day to load a skip for you.

0800 JUNK 2 GO
Used for the same reason in Jan last year in west Auckland. Very happy with the rate at the time. Can't remember how much.

Great, thanks.

Sounds like a good option.

I've looked at the flexibins, but I want someone to load and take it away all in one go.

Flexibin are hopeless when you need to know when things will be going. I can get away with it at the moment with no flatmates, but having to leave cars on the road all day incase they decided that they would collect that day is not something I liked.

Ask on the local facebook page, someone is always offering junk collection services on it.

Thanks for the recommendation.

Just had 0800 JUNK 2 GO guys turn up.

Called them at 9am today, they turned up at 2.

They said they'd be there between 12:30 and 2:30, but would call when they were 20 mins away.
They called at 1, saying they'd be a bit late, closer to 2.
Called at 1:30 to say they'd be there at 2 - and they were!

Not like a tradey at all - pretty impressed.
Filled their whole truck in 40 minutes, took credit card on the spot.


Recommended.

From a cost perspective, probably about 30% more expensive than hiring the skip and getting rid of the rubbish.
Well impressed.
