The Low Down on Skip Hire
Skip bin hire is frequently oversimplified by customers who expect to call to arrange a delivery and mistakenly expect to get one in the next 20 minutes as if it were like getting a taxi. Trucks are not simply driving around your neighbourhood waiting for a callout like a taxi or tow truck. Marrel vehicles are constantly picking up, emptying, storing and delivering so when you call and the truck is delivering one or more bin it will take at least an hour (if only one delivery) for the driver to get back to the yard because he should pick-up at least one skip bin on his way back so as not to waste a journey. When our partners are busy they will setup their vehicles on “runs” and they can’t slot new customers once the truck leaves if they don’t have the right bin on board and even if they do not delivering another customer’s bin isn’t really the best option.
There are a few different mechanisms that are used for loading bins on and off trucks and each has it’s advantages and disadvantages. The most common type is the marrel which utilises a bar suspended between two extendable articulated arms which allows the truck to unload off the back of the truck and handle light to medium weight loads. The next most common style of mechanism is the Hook-lift or Roll-on Roll-off (RORO) which utilises an articulated arm with a hook that can extend to the rear of the vehicle to grab one end of the bin and pull the bin over the rollers on the flatbed of the truck. In this setup the rear of the containers also have rollers on them so that they can be manoeuvred along the ground. RORO systems are generally used for large volume containers and high weight situations.
The last two bin loading mechanisms are seen far less frequently, the first utilises a multi articulated crane arm to load and unload bin from a series of slots. This system is only used for 2m skips as it can only handle light loads and the slots can only handle one bin size. The last is a variation of the marrel system when the arm are oriented to unload on the side of the vehicle rather than the rear. This can only be used for light loads and smaller skips as the width of the truck cannot accommodate the length of the larger skips.
