  • Should have hired a skip

    Value For Money

    Pros:  bags are a nice colour
    Cons:  you'll end up getting a skip

    "My hippobag has been sitting on my drive for two weeks waiting to be collected. Hippo say that they will collect the bag within 5 working days but that isn't my experience. They finally arrived after seven days but said they couldn't access the bag because of parked cars - despite having a 12 foot gap (i.e. The width of my drive) with no obstructions. Ten working days later I'm still waiting for collection. Hippo give you no idea when they will collect - no email, no text. If you live on a street where cars park I suggest you acquire some traffic cones along with the bag and line the entire street then you may have a fighting chance of getting your bag collected within a few weeks. The Hippo website gives the impression that the cranes on their trucks can grab their bags from pretty much anywhere as long as it's within 4m of the road (even from behind walls) but this appears not to be the case. Total waste of time and money."

    Pros:  good value compared to a skip, excellent service
    Cons:  none

    "This is the first time I have used these bags and was a little aprehensive in using the mega bag for around 50 used paving slabs that I calculated to weigh around 1.5 tonne (the maximum weight allowed). I filled the bag and so as ot to overload it placed surplus rubble and soil in 5 plastic sacks each weighing around 40kg to one side for later disposal. I booked the collection on the Sunday and 2 days later came home from work to not only find the hippo bag had been collected but they had also taken the surplus rubble. You cant get better service than that."

    Pros:  put it where convenient

    "A skip would have been dropped on block paving and blocked the drive. I put this to one side of the front garden where I could easily fill it and bag was collected within a couple of days. Would recommend to anyone"
