DIY Tipper Trailer Hire FAQs

Here Are Some Frequently Asked Questions About DIY Tipper Trailer Hire

First up, what is a hydraulic tipper trailer?

A hydraulic tipper trailer is a specialised trailer equipped with a hydraulic lifting mechanism. This feature allows the trailer base to be raised and tilted at an angle, making it easy to unload materials such as rubbish, junk, and rubble with the simple push of a button.

Why should I consider hiring a tipper trailer for my waste disposal?

Hiring a tipper trailer offers several advantages that make it an excellent choice for both personal, construction and commercial clean-up projects. Here are some key reasons why you might decide to go with a tipper trailer hire:

Flexibility in Scheduling: With a tipper trailer, you have the freedom to manage your waste disposal on your own time. You can plan multiple trips to the dump or recycling centre according to your own schedule, which is particularly useful for ongoing projects.

Cost-Effectiveness: If you have access to a suitable towing vehicle, hiring a tipper trailer can be more economical. You pay a daily rate and manage the dumping fees yourself, which can be cheaper than hiring a full-service skip bin for smaller or medium-sized projects.

Increased Control: You have complete control over how to sort and dispose of your waste. This is especially advantageous if you want to separate recyclables or handle sensitive waste responsibly.

Ease of Use: Tipper trailers are equipped with hydraulic lifting mechanisms, making it easier to unload heavy loads. This feature saves time and reduces the effort required during the unloading process.

Access to Tight Spaces: If you need to navigate narrow driveways, under carports, or other confined areas including basement carparks, tipper trailers are ideal. They’re easy to maneuver, so you can load waste closer to the point of accumulation.

No Permit Required: As tipper trailers are considered vehicles, they generally do not require special permits to be parked on the street, unlike large skip bins which might need council approval.

Choosing to hire a tipper trailer is particularly advantageous for those who prefer a hands-on approach to managing their waste disposal, offering both flexibility and efficiency in your clean-up efforts.
