FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: DEMOLITION
CAN YOU PROVIDE A FREE QUOTE?
Yes, we provide a free, no obligation, fully detailed demolition quote via email. We do however, need to be able to walk around the outside of the property and into the back yard in order to quote. If the property is vacant, internal access would be ideal so that we can provide you with a quote that's as accurate as possible.
HOW MUCH DOES DEMOLITION COST?
We do have a blog post that covers this actually as costs vary greatly depending on a number of factors. Click here to read more on demolition costs. Honestly and surprisingly it's not as straightforward as it sounds as there's quite a bit that's taken into account in order to quote accurately. Fortunately we provide free quotes! Please arrange your free quote with us today for more accurate pricing.
WHAT IF THE PROPERTY IS TENANTED?
We can still provide you with a free demolition quote. You will need to notify your real estate agent/ tenants that we will be around to quote. We will be knocking on the door to announce ourselves before inspecting the property. The last thing we need to do is frighten the tenants into calling the Police when they see strangers walking around their rental! It generally makes it easier to advise them that we don't need internal access at this stage.
DO I NEED TO ARRANGE SERVICE ABOLISHMENTS?
Yes, you will need to arrange the abolishment of gas, power & any telecommunications services prior to commencement of demolition works on site. Please note, water is to remain on site and does not need to be abolished. For more information on the entire demolition process, please see here.
WHAT ABOUT ASBESTOS?
We use licensed and qualified Asbestos sub-contractors to remove and dispose of any possible Asbestos found on site safely, following & adhering to Worksafe guidelines and regulations. Find out more about asbestos here.
DO I NEED A COUNCIL PERMIT FOR DEMOLITION?
Yes, a 'demolition permit' will be required, however the proper term is a building permit and we will arrange this on your behalf. Don't worry - this particular building permit is for demolition purposes only. Your building permit for the new construction isn't affected by this permit in any way.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: SKIP BIN HIRE
WHAT CAN'T GO IN THE WASTE BIN?
We don't take anything toxic (Asbestos, paint tins, chemicals, etc), food waste, gas bottles or car tyres. Click here for a list of waste types we can take.
DO YOU OFFER A SAME DAY SERVICE?
Yes, we can and this is subject to availability.
DOES THE SKIP BIN HAVE DOORS?
Yes, all our skip bins are walk-in bins. This means they have a gate/door on the back for easy access, just walk straight in!
HOW LONG CAN WE HAVE THE BIN?
Skip bin hire is based on a 3 day hire period unless otherwise confirmed at the time of booking. Once the skip bin is full (please keep it water level - there's a marker on the skip bin for this), you'll just need to notify us that the waste bin is ready to be picked up. As soon as we have a truck in the area, we will collect the skip bin for you. If you need a waste bin longer than 3 days, please give us a call to discuss further.
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT SIZE SKIP BIN I'LL NEED?
If you neatly stack your rubbish into a pile, you'll just need to roughly multiply the height by the width and the length (H x W x L) of the pile in order to get the approximate volume. This then translates into cubic metres which you can then use to select a skip bin size for your waste needs.
CAN THE SKIP BIN BE PLACED ON THE ROAD?
We can place most skip bins on the road, however additional fees do apply as we will need to obtain a Council permit on your behalf. As each Council differs in relation to permit fees, terms & allowing waste bins in certain areas, you will need to call us to double check.
