Bought a 1x1x3m FlexiBin. Was a success for us.


It was collected (suburban Wellington) on 6th day after collection-order & payment which was just OK.


Ordered collection on web interface, no way to choose collection day/time (exact or range); no indication of when it would be collected and no communication (eg phone) before the event of collection – truck simply turned up. Palfinger telescopic jointed crane was behind cab of truck so the crane had to reach over the cab to lift our bin because the bin-truck was too long to fit otherwise (down a drive). Driver manoeuvred crane with dexterity. Apparently there is a flat-deck truck which can be used for more difficult sites.

Yeah the whole not bening able to book a time thing really annoys me with them. We used them cleaning up a rental and it was still there when the people moved in on the 6th day and then turned up when the moving truck was there. Total disaster. At least with real skips they let you book the exact time to have them go.

We use them all the time, not had any issues. Bin is always somewhere they can get to it if we're home or not.


They did send a small truck once for a large bin, which he did get on the truck, but then couldnt get up our driveway - those who have been round can vouch for how fun it is ;)
