Characteristics of a Good Rubbish Removal Firm

When it comes to clearing rubbish, it is normal to feel a bit overwhelmed, especially when you have just moved house or when you have huge loads of rubbish to get rid of. Clearing and disposing of garbage is a daunting task for most people and this is understandable.

When it comes to clearing rubbish from a massive area such as a construction site, this task takes on a life of its own due to the sheer size and volume of the builders rubbish collection. This is where a rubbish removal company comes in.

They can handle whatever rubbish you have irrespective of the nature, volume or location of the load with no hassle at all. So, whether you are looking for a company to ensure your home and office is garbage-free; or whether you have a building or construction site you would like cleared, a rubbish removal firm can sort out all your rubbish disposal needs.

What characteristics should you look out for in a good rubbish removal firm?

Characteristics should you look out for in a good rubbish removal firm

  • Clear agreements – Look for a rubbish removal company that has everything in writing and all terms are clear. It is important that you pay for exactly what you’re getting. Look out for hidden fees like landfill or congestion fees. Some companies are quick to share a low quote initially only for the invoice to come to a much higher cost than quoted. Look for a company that openly shares their terms and has no hidden fees to avoid paying much more than discussed.
  • They ask the right question first – A good rubbish removal firm will find out what type of waste you have to know what to expect in terms of man power and equipment. It would be disappointing to only see one person arriving at your premise with the wrong equipment to haul away huge loads of garbage that could end up taking all day rather than a few hours. A good rubbish removal firm will initially ask what kind of rubbish you have, how much and how heavy it is to have an idea of what equipment they should come with and what manpower to assign to the task to be able to work swiftly and effectively.
  • Work within your timing – We have busy schedules and there’s nothing more irritating than having to cancel one appointment because the rubbish removal company arrived late and they are taking their sweet time doing the task at hand. A good rubbish removal company will discuss what the best time is for you and they will make a point of making it to your premise in good time. Upon arrival, if they estimate the removal process might take longer than anticipated, they will advice you on this and you can decide how to handle this in good time without any inconvenience.
  • Trust worthy – When it comes to our personal or working space, we all hope that anyone who comes into this space will treat it well. Look out for a company that has a record of being professional, careful handling items and can also be trusted in your home or business premise. You also want to be assured that nothing will go missing when you ask the company to come to collect rubbish, so look for a company that is known for their professionalism and can be trusted.
  • Great reviews and track record – Any company dedicated to doing a good job will have great referrals and reviews. Whether on their website or on social media, you can be sure to see loads of happy and satisfied customers sharing their testimonials. You can also ask family and friends for referrals because they already have the first-hand experience of dealing with different companies and they can recommend the one that worked best for them. Find out about their customer service, their efficiency, pricing and more before making a choice.
  • Environment friendly – Choose a company that is keen on preserving the environment. Look out for one that has eco-friendly practices and uses proper disposal methods.


With these tips, you’re well on your way to choosing the ideal rubbish removal firm best suited for you.
