How did all of this begin? Well, it’s a bit like this…
Where we started
In August 2021 Bruce made the tough decision to retire and that’s when Murray and Michelle came along. After Murray came across Philaskip and it’s unique trailer design he knew this was the business for him.
Bruce thought there had to be a more economical and environmentally friendly way to deliver rubbish removal skip bins and thus passing the savings onto the end user, you the customer and taking care of the environment at the same time.
So the challenge was to build a system to do this and what you see today is the end result of many hours of research, phone calls, reams of paper, drawings and whiteboard sessions.
By utilising a towable trailer to make the delivery of our skip bins, it reduces the carbon foot print and vehicle running costs which in the end is better for our environment and offers us the ability to offer our customers a better deal.
Hours of thoughts and using Mr Google has led to todays trailer, but it wasn’t all plain sailing, nothing like this had been built here in New Zealand.
From getting bins to load onto the trailer, to empty and above all trying to keep the weight of the trailer down to the lightest possible weight was one on the biggest challanges we faced. We needed to be able to use existing bins that were already on the market as these could be sourced from most bin builders so in it self this was a another hurdle.
Even the engineers found it to be a challenge but after 14 months from conception to delivering skip bins, we are up and running, and very proud of what we have achieved.
Sooo what do we call this new business? Well by blending 2 words, Philip (our name) and Skip (the bins) we came up with PHILASKIP!
So for all your Skip Bin needs, give Philaskip a call. We would love to help

First time hiring a skip bin, online ordering was so simple and easy. Bruce even came out during long weekend to deliver another after unexpectedly filling the first.
Pleasure to deal with and will certainly recommend and be using again!
Was really easy to book online and pay. absolutely no hassles and delivery and pickup was perfectly on schedule
We can’t recommend Philaskip enough. They accommodated our last minute request without question, provided the skip the next day and came to collect when we had finished. So easy and friendly, we won’t hesitate to use again! Thanks
Excellent service. Cheaper than the other companies that claim to be cheap.
Great work getting skip bin up our narrow and tree-lined driveway. Mobile on-the-spot eftpos makes it easy to pay.
Awesome service, fast response and delivery, and hassle free. Would definitely use again
Thanks for the Fantastic service.
Will only be getting philaskip bins from now on and will be highly recommending you to all my friends.
