We all have busy lives and the last thing you want to do is spend all day traveling back and forward to the tip all day.  Often it is a better idea to employ the services of a local rubbish removal business to make the whole process as effortless as possible.  To help you make the right choice we have put together a few considerations when choosing which is the best company to use for rubbish removal in Brisbane.

Experience and insurance

When lifting and carrying heavy items there is always the risk of injury or damage, not only to the people doing the heavy work but also damage to walls and other furniture while shifting through the house.  1300Clearout has been involved in the industry for fifteen years and with over 20,000 jobs under their belt you can be assured they are qualified to move almost any object with care and consideration.  They are also fully insured against personal injury and carry full public liability insurance should an accident happen.

Type of rubbish

Making sure you have the right service for your type of rubbish is also an important consideration.  For example, if you have builders’ waste there is little point in hiring a skip which can only take one-ton total weight.  Similarly, if you are clearing household furniture, there is little point in hiring a skip which has a seven-ton weight limit. 1300clearout has several local rubbish removal services to suit a variety of jobs.  For green waste, their skip bin hire service is perfect and economical, and you can keep it for up to seven days for you to spread the workload.  If you have all the items ready to go in one location check out their load-and-go service option for a speedy and well-priced option.  Alternatively, if you want them to do all the work, their full-service option means they will take the rubbish from wherever it is located and load it onto one of their trucks without you lifting a finger. For further details and prices please look at our hands-on rubbish removal service here.


It is important to shop around for a business that is not only well priced but has a price structure that is easy to understand.  Make sure you know the total cost before employing the services of a rubbish removal business.  A professional company will always have upfront prices on their website and should be able to confirm the total price before starting the job.  Also, clarify that the price quoted is all inclusive of labor, tipping, transport and GST as there is nothing more annoying than having an extra 10% added to the bill after the job is complete.  It is also important to find out how payment is accepted.  Never pay before the job is completed and confirm that there is no surcharge for paying by EFTPOS or credit card.  If you can be there when the job is carried out always make sure you agree on the final price over the phone before giving the authorization to go ahead.  At 1300Clearout the prices are all shown upfront on their web site and they will never start a job without confirming the total price and receiving authorization to go ahead.

Clean and polite staff

You would not let just anyone wander into your home or business without making a few checks first.  Always check out to see if they have testimonials on their web site and on google before employing them.  Make sure they are uniformed, and their vehicles are fit for the job and sign written.  It is not unreasonable to ask for an ABN number to make sure they are a legitimate business and have been in existence for several years. At 1300clearout they pride themselves on providing a professional service with unformed drivers in sign written trucks.  Here are a couple of their recent testimonials:
